Ranges Prices, Reviews and Specifications

     
 


Fueled by gas or electricity, a range can have an almost infinite number of features and options, and prices can vary accordingly. Gas ranges offer more immediate control over heating levels; electric ranges are typically less expensive, provide even oven temperatures and can be easier to clean; and dual fuel ranges blend the precise control of a gas cooktop with the even temperatures of an electric oven.
