Are you renovating your kitchen and looking for new appliances? Meet your needs with the right choices for long-term satisfaction. Replacing a current stove means choosing a model of the same size and shape. Buying new appliances gives you some room for choice when making your plans. First, you must decide if you're going for a gas range or electric stove. This might depend on preference or practicality. Given enough space, you might choose a gas stove top for the counter and a separate electric wall oven.
With or without an integrated oven, your choice of stove top could be price or style driven. Gas-powered tops have an open flame while electric tops have flat or coil plates that heat up. Induction tops offer extra safety and only get hot when a pot sits on them. Size matters when choosing the right stove, oven or range. Choose the one that meets your needs, which might be a narrow four-burner stove or a wide commercial-type range.
