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.

Small Kitchen Appliance Ideas

by Steve Sheinkopf

Unquestionably, our earlier small appliance posts garnered the most feedback. I have been thinking long and hard about this post. It seems like a predicament, because small appliance are built like...crap. Avanti is OK, but most people want self cleaning on a range and a decent refrigerator.

Keeping the refrigerator and stove at 30 inches is important....So lets look at decreasing the size of the dishwasher and still have a marketable kitchen

How about this:

A plug in countertop dishwasher...True it uses counters, but not cabinet space

How about a in the sink dishwasher? A tad pricey and rather large at 36 and 42 inch widths., but an interesting idea

Would an 18 inch dishwasher help? Try a GE Monogram or Miele for a decent product.

Buying Small Appliances...Refrigerators

by Steve Sheinkopf

Refrigerators fit cabinets. Case in point, the most common cabinet sizes are 30, 33 and 36, refrigerator widths are 28, 29.5, 32.5 and 35.75...But what happens with the odd cabinet at less than 30?

A good alternative is LG, the LRBP1031 is 24 inch and tall at 67 inches. It is available in white and titanium

Another decent product is the GE GTR11AAPRWW. It is 12 cubic foot, 24 inches wide and self defrosting.

I like the reliability of a major brand. There are a few off brands like Avanti, Summit, Sunbeam, Excellence and Welbilt, but I am not crazy about the prospects of longevity

Buying Small Appliances....Ranges

by Steve Sheinkopf

Is this the most underserved category on the planet. The major appliance manufacturers do not even dabble in this segment. Now there are millions of galley kitchens worldwide(especially in Europe) that require a stove in the 20 or 24 inch sizes

In this country, you have 2 choices. A no name brand like Premier on the lower end or Sunbeam, Summit or Avanti for style. We sell Avanti.

Avanti Range

There is unfortunately no middle ground, since GE, Whirlpool, Bosch and Frigidaire do not manufacture in this segment, your next choice is a pro like Viking or 5 Star at over 3,000
