Best Freestanding & Slide-In Gas Range Deals 2014 (Reviews/Ratings/Prices)

As I said last year, gas ranges are starting to perform more like professional ranges with at least one burner being super hot. However, gas ranges now have upgraded features like griddle burners, warming drawers or second ovens. You can spend $599 and have a 17,000 BTU burner. Your 6 year old range has a max of 12,000 BTUs.

We will look at the best units to consider now with freestanding first and then slide-in ranges below. Slide-ins are units with the controls on the face rather than the backguard for a more streamlined appearance (read Slide-In vs Freestanding, it will pop up in another window).

A slide-in with the same features will cost 10-15% more but will be more cleanable, because it is installed on the countertop, eliminating seams. You will also see the custom tile and backsplashes without looking at oven controls like the freestanding units.

I have said this many times. Frigidaire is the value line in the appliance industry. They have the lowest cost structure, but Frigidaire also manufacturers a relaible product. The DGGF3042KF has a 17,000 BTU burner along with a 14,000 BTU burner as well as a griddle burner and stainless handle.

The Bosch adds a fifth burner. It is actually manufactured by Frigidaire, but they have better package rebates. Bosch features a stainless top, a 15,000 BTU burner and European convection (third element heat blown in from the rear for a more even heat).

KitchenAid is a true double oven at 6 cubic foot and a 16,000 BTU burner as well as a griddle burner and convection, but without warming drawer or convection.

Most of these have greater savings as part of a package. Click here for a few of our best selling packages.

The first Frigidaire distinguishes itself purely on price. As high as $1,400 might seem for a range, it is quite reasonable for a slide-in range.

The Jenn-Air and the second Frigidaire have a powerful burner, convection and a warming drawer. The Jenn-Air is part of our most popular package. Electrolux has two ovens and a fifth burner with the best controls of any range in the industry with modes for dehydrating vegetables, proofing and even "Perfect Turkey".
