The Best 24 Inch Gas Ranges (Reviews/Ratings)

by Steve Sheinkopf

30 years ago when I started at Yale, you would be hard pressed to find a decent looking smaller range. They were nonexistent. Today, however, there are plenty of choices.

Appliances follow cabinet sizes. For example, dishwashers are either manufactured to fit a 24" or 18" cabinet. In refrigerators, it is 30", 33" and 36" widths as the most popular.

For ranges, it is 20", 24", 36" and 48" with 30" width being the the most popular size by far. The 36", 48" and 60” ranges are mostly the glamour professional ranges like Wolf, Thermador or high fashion imports like Smeg or Bertazzoni.

In this article, we will look at the 24" range, the products and compare at the end.
