Cook Like a Pro with a Range from Lang’s

Any good kitchen calls for stylish appliances that speak to your cooking prowess and your taste for design. We know it can be stressful finding a range that fits your needs. Maybe you need help deciding which kind of range to get. Gas range? Electric? Dual fuel? Which one is right for you?

We’re here to help. Let’s walk through what you need to know before you get to cooking.

What Is a Range?

If you’re wondering what a range even is, you aren’t alone. A range is a combination of an oven and stove (or cooktop or rangetop). If you’re looking for a standalone rangetop or cooktop, we sell those too! We also carry wall ovens.

Electric Ranges

Now, let’s talk about the types of ranges you’ll find in your searches, starting with electric. Electric ranges are ideal for any home that doesn’t already have a gas hookup installed (we’ll cover gas hookups in the gas range section).

In this category, you’ll find:

  • Free standing ranges that can fit anywhere in your kitchen where there’s space
  • Slide-in ranges that are designed to fit into a designated range spot
  • Drop-in ranges, which are designed for a custom and very specific spot in your kitchen (a spot designed for only a drop-in range)

Any of these electric ranges will provide the same efficient heating elements and types of features, so choosing one is largely dependent on your kitchen.

Gas Ranges

Gas ranges bring a professional-style cooking experience to your kitchen. You’ll find similar categories here—like free standing and slide-in—but you’ll also find pro-style ranges. Pro-style ranges are a special case for those of us who live and breathe recipes and hosting. For the inner (or outer) professional chef, these are the way to go.

Gas ranges do require a gas line in your kitchen and professional installation. If you’re not sure if this is right for you, give us a call! We’ll be happy to help you get the process started.

Dual Fuel Ranges

Dual-fuel ranges are the best of both worlds. These ranges contain a gas-powered oven and an electric cooktop. These are great options for those who want the professional results of gas cooking and the highly controllable features of electric cooktops.

Which Range Type is Better?

After all that you’re probably wondering which type of range is the best. Well, that’s up to you! Gas brings real fire and professional style to the table while electric brings more precise control of the heat, and dual fuel brings both.

It’s really up to you to decide which one that works best. Does that still sound overwhelming? Give us a call or stop by your local Lang’s today. We’re here to help you make the right decision for your space and pick out the ideal range.
