Buying Guide For 24″ Electric & Gas Range – Factors To Consider Before Buying

Type of Installation

Whether you want a built-in type of range or a freestanding range is one of the most important decisions you should take when deciding to buy an electric/gas range. While built-in installations are mounted on the walls or under the kitchen bench, freestanding ranges offer far more versatility.

Since they come in a wide range of sizes, you can choose the one that best suits your space. If you live in a small apartment with a space crunch or have a small kitchen, a freestanding type of installation is the best choice.

Extra Storage Space

A lot of modern electric and gas ranges come with extra space, and this is a handy tool since you can easily access all the cookware you’ll be using on the stove or oven. 

Safety Stops

When you prepare many dishes all at once, you will need safety stops or other safety features on the oven, which will prevent the oven racks from slipping or sliding out. Otherwise, all your food will end up on the floor.

Number of Heat Controls

Whether it is an electric or gas range, the number of heat controls on your stovetop is an essential feature that you should consider. If you want to cook different types of food at different temperatures, you will definitely need more heat controls.

Material

Make sure that your stovetop does not just have a glamorous finish and look but is made of a material that will prevent rusting due to the extreme heat and steam in the kitchen.

A stainless steel stovetop can really help in preventing rust. It will also provide durability to the appliance and is less prone to damage. 

Size

Since there are stovetops, cooktops, and electric and gas ranges available in many sizes, you should carefully choose the best size that suits the availability of space in your kitchen. Don’t buy a larger size just because it looked more appealing.

In this case, the grates being continuously placed is a bonus factor as you can easily move heavy cookware without lifting them.
