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 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.

Slide-In vs. Freestanding Ranges vs. Front Control 

Slide-ins are units with the controls on the face of the range rather than the backguard 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.
