Best Freestanding & Slide-In Gas Range Deals 2015 (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 $649 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.

  • Frigidaire The DGGF3042 has better burners at a 17,000 BTU burner along with a 14,000 BTU burner as well as a griddle burner and stainless handle.
  • Bosch The Bosch adds a fifth burner. It is actually manufactured by Frigidaire, but they have better package rebates. 
  • Electrolux is a cool range with good output and a really cool look with great features like the ability to bake breads through proofing. It also has a dehydrate mode for drying fruit. I also like the warming drawer for refreshing leftovers or keep food warm (up to three hours).
  • KitchenAid is a true double oven at 6 cubic foot and a 16,000 BTU burner as well as a griddle burner in the middle. 

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. At $1,499, the range is a great value only because it is being discontinued for another style.

Electrolux has a fifth burner and the best controls of any range in the industry with modes for dehydrating vegetables, proofing and even perfect turkey.
