The Best 20 Inch Gas Ranges (Reviews/Ratings/Prices)

by Mark Bennett

So, you're limited in space for a gas range? You are not alone as many city kitchens and tenant apartments have the same requirement. The standard width of a range is 30 inches, but many smaller spaces only allow a 20" or 24" range.

Last week, we updated an article about 24 inch gas ranges. There are many good options for 24" ranges including Bertazzoini, AGA, Fisher &Paykel as well as more basic brands.

My hope is that there would be a better selection for 20" gas ranges as well. However, there are just 6 brands: Danby, Avanti, Amana, Hotpoint, Premier and Summit. They all look the same.

The Best 24 Inch Gas Ranges (Reviews/Ratings)

by Steve Sheinkopf

30 years ago when I started at Yale, you would be hard pressed to find a decent looking smaller range. They were nonexistent. Today, however, there are plenty of choices.

Appliances follow cabinet sizes. For example, dishwashers are either manufactured to fit a 24" or 18" cabinet. In refrigerators, it is 30", 33" and 36" widths as the most popular.

For ranges, it is 20", 24", 36" and 48" with 30" width being the the most popular size by far. The 36", 48" and 60” ranges are mostly the glamour professional ranges like Wolf, Thermador or high fashion imports like Smeg or Bertazzoni.

In this article, we will look at the 24" range, the products and compare at the end.

VestFrost and Small 24 Inch Counter Depth Refrigerators

by Steve Sheinkopf

According to analytics, 300 people were inquiring about VestFrost refrigerators in the last two weeks. So my first question was: What is a VestFrost refrigerator?

VestFrost is an interesting product built with all recyclable material. They are the largest refrigerator manufacturer in Scandanavia. Their story or claim to fame is energy efficiency, green manufacturing and counter depth products. It is also not self-defrosting, so the VestFrost does not consume electricity heating the outside of the refrigerator in a defrost cycle.
