Slide In Ranges

So Many slide in ranges....They look the same and have similar features. To refresh, a slide in range does not have a backguard, so it allows for a more finished look in your kitchen. Custom tile backsplashes can be featured, because they are not hidden.

Most slide ranges will have dual fuel, convection and a power burner of at least 16,000 BTU(you are cooking on 10-12). It depends on your viewpoint in determining the right purchase

Frigidaire: Similar features and at $1289 the best price. Frigidaire does not offer a bottom freezer or a stainless interior dishwasher, so outfitting a whole kitchen is difficult.

Jenn-Air: Pricey at $1800-2000, but a great package with an underrated dishwasher and tons of rebates. Good name cache(what? That doesn't matter)

Jenn-Air Slide-In

KitchenAid: At 1,800, it has intuitive controls and good package opportunities

GE Cafe: Ge is the best range for features, 5 burners and an 18,000 BTU burner. But at 2400 it will cost you, and the packages will be another 2,000 more than a JennAir

    Steve, can you do a posting on convection ovens? I've had the same stove for about a year now and just realized that it has a convection feature.
