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 even 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 will look at the best models, but first, we will describe the difference in freestanding and front control ranges. Professional versus front control ranges will also be explored.

Slide-In vs. Freestanding Ranges vs. Front Control

Slide-in ranges are units with the controls on the face of the range rather than the back guard like freestanding ranges do for a more streamlined appearance (read Slide-In vs Freestanding, it will pop up in another window).

There are two types of slide-ins, front control and traditional. Front control will fit in an in an existing space at 30 inch, but will have seams on either side.

A traditional slide-in will be more cleanable, because it's installed on the countertop, eliminating seams. However, it cannot replace a freestanding without some modification.

You will also see the custom tile and backsplashes without looking at oven controls like the freestanding units. Also, front control ranges are less expensive.

Front Control vs. Professional

You used to buy the professional range for output, but that is not the case anymore. High-end front controls will offer 1 or 2 power burners versus 3-4 on a professional range.

Front controls all have self-cleaning ovens, whereas only half of the professional ranges do.

Features vary widely as well. The front control will have a warming or baking drawer, but some of the Pros will offer extra low simmer or twin convebest protion.

The prices after promotions are pretty similar as well. Your choice will depend on how you cook.
