Electric ranges have not changed over the years as much as you would think. In fact, they are pretty similar.

An electric range is still ceran glass over heating elements, but some of the features like a convection system, a warming drawer, and an added 5th burner make new electric ranges worth considering.

You will see bigger price differences when you consider front control/slide-in electric ranges for aesthetics (you will see your backsplash) and then induction for performance.

We will look at freestanding, front control and induction products.

Yale Framingham Freestanding Ranges

Freestanding vs. Slide-in 

Freestanding_Ranges-vs-front-control-ranges

Freestanding ranges have the controls on the back while slide-in ranges (front control ranges) have their controls on the front. Freestanding ranges will be less expensive with similar features. Slide-in ranges will look better because you can see your backsplashes.

Induction vs. Regular Electric

Induction is magnetic heat. The magnets attract the steel in your pan while the pan cooks the food

Induction is also the fastest to boil with instant simmer. It also cannot be turned on without sensing metal so it is the safest.

We will look at freestanding ranges, then front controls and then induction. This article will change frequently due to rebates and new products.

Final Thoughts

Electric hasn’t changed much, except now you can buy convection and have better baking at a lower price.

You may also want to consider front control with a newer renovation, because you can see your tile or backsplash. It will look better in your kitchen.

Induction is the best performing cooking you can buy whether you boil or simmer if that is important.
