The Five Features to a Gas Range

I once visited the new Whirlpool gas manufacturing plant in Tulsa. I remember watching the cabinets sent through the line and really the demarcation between models was the control panel, burners and the fan(for convection). If you want to purchase an gas freestanding range, this is the list of upgraded features

1. Self Cleaning: Heat cycle that incinerates the baked on food in your oven

2. Convection: Fan forced heat that distributes air more evenly throughout the oven. Convection is a fairly affordable feature starting at $599-$699

3. Power burner: On the better units, the BTU output increases from 12,000-16,000 BTU on one burner for faster cooking. 16,000 BTU is the same as a professional burner, just less costly

4. Fifth Burner: Kind of self explanatory.

5. Warming drawer/ Second oven: A built in warming drawer sells for about $900. In a stove, however, it is a $200-300 upgrade. The warming drawer allows for foods to remian warm for up to 3 hours. It can also be used to effectively refresh leftovers
