A Review of the Top Rated Slide-In Gas Convection Ranges

February 28th, 2013 | 2 min. read

By Rick Medeiros

Slide-In ranges are ranges without a backguard. The main benefit is aesthetics. You can see your backsplash for a more custom, refined look.

Second benefit is cleanability. The range fits over the cabinet, so there is no seam for liquids to seep through.

Convection cooking is a fan-forced heat for a more even heat distribution throughout the oven cavity. The main benefit to heat distribution is more even cooking, especially baking. In a non-convection oven, the element below radiates upward, so the items on the bottom rack will be cooked more than the items on the top rack. With convection, the heat is spread more evenly.

A great example of the KitchenAid range in a home. Notice how the grates overlap to give it the clean look.

Notice the enamel surface. This is less likely to scratch and will make cleanup a breeze with most spills.

Which is best?

Tough question. The Electrolux has the most features, modes and ability to cook in different ways. The control panel is very intuitive and easy to use. Jenn-Air is a good looking, relatively inexpensive stove. It is also part of our best selling package. I also like the KitchenAid with the wide grates, but the product needs to be restyled, especially with the stove vent going through the cooktop (not good). Frigidaire is a solid, dependable product. It is actually one of the most reliable products in the industry.
