If you’re in the market for a new professional range, it’s probably because you’re renovating, building or upgrading. There can be an overwhelming amount of options.

Pro Range Configurator 

Pro ranges now have an array of features such as steam ovens, warming drawers, self-cleaning, infrared broilers, twin convection as well as different choices in gas, dual fuel, and even induction.

We designed a pro range configurator to make it easy for you. You can select the options you want depending on your kitchen, style, and cooking preference and our pro range configurator will break down your options for you based on your selections.

However, there are a few things you need to know first for the best results.

Size and Oven

It's important to know the size of your range that’s currently there or being planned for your kitchen. The most popular sizes for a professional range are 30, 36, and 48 inches.  


You need to have an idea of how you are going to use the oven - whether you will be baking or broiling more as well as knowing how you will use your stovetop. Do you need more output or a better simmer? Is the grill or griddle important?

Your burner configuration depends on the size and your cooking preference. Depending on what brand you select, you could have the stovetop be all burners or a mix of burners with a griddle or grill.

Fuel Type

Once you have an idea of how you will be using your oven, you also need to know the fuel type whether it’s all gas or dual fuel. Dual fuel ranges have a gas stovetop with an electric convection oven.

Typically, electric ovens are better for baking because you have more control of your oven temperature and convection provides consistent, even heat.  An all gas range is more powerful and provides a moister heat, which is better for roasting.

As for features, think about if you would like guided cooking or just something more basic.  Remember, no one range has the best of every feature.

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.

My goal has always been simple: I want Yale to be the best retail experience anywhere. I have tried to create a compelling environment for customers and employees alike.
