Best Freestanding & Slide-In Gas Range Deals 2016 (Reviews/Ratings/Prices)

You do not have to buy a pro range for super hot burners anymore. Gas ranges are starting to perform more like professional ranges with at least one burner being super hot. You also have available features like griddle burners, warming drawers or second ovens.

So if you haven't been in the market for a while, there is much more to consider than just five years ago. It can be a bit confusing, but we will describe each unit and feature below. You can determine the right product for your kitchen.

We'll look at the best units to consider now with freestanding first and then slide-in ranges below.

Slide-In vs. Freestanding Ranges

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).

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

The newer (as of 2015) slide-in is just a front control range without the cleanability of the traditional range.

The traditional slide-in is better for new construction. Front control is better for replacement of a freestanding range, because you do not have to modify cabinets.
