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.

Best 20 Inch Gas Ranges

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.

Unlike the 24" range, there really is not an upscale brand with a great range. In fact, there are only two brands with a decent product offering. In this article, we'll go over the two standout brands, the products and tips on how to buy.

Premier and Summit

Premier and Summit are smaller companies specializing in smaller apartment size appliances. Premier specializes in cooking products, while Summit offers dishwashers, refrigeration, and also laundry. These two companies will have the largest selection of small stoves.

Summit will have 11 different models available, colors are again black, white, bisque, and stainless. Summit will have options for both open and sealed burners, all are manual clean, and capacities are from 2.4 to 2.6 cubic feet.

Broilers will be in the drawer in most models, 2 of them will have a storage drawer with the broiler in the main oven. Pricing from them will be from $369 to $889.

Summary

The Premier would be the better value and more reliable, but I think the Summit is the better looking. They will give you more options in both the basic line and a higher-end look with their professional line.

If you are planning a small kitchen, I would try to specify a 24" range. There are better options. Consider a smaller 18" dishwasher or 24" refrigerator to gain the extra 4 inches if you can.

WHY SHOULD YOU TRUST US?

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.
