The Different Stove Ranges
The Different Ranges
Stove ranges come in a wide spectrum of types and each with a different way of cooking or venting out the heat. Gas stove ranges use natural gas to start a flame directly under the burner, while an electric stove range heats up a metal coil using high voltage to cook food. Stove range ovens include an oven under the range, and stove hood ranges include a ventilation hood above the range to displace heat and any smoke that may build up from cooking. These different types of ranges each cook at different rates, so when changing from one range to another it is important to keep an eye on the food you’re cooking.
Stovetop ranges also vary in size, most common are 30” ranges but can be as big as 40” for commercial use. Industrial ranges are much larger due to the fact they are required to cook a large amount of food in very short amounts of time. Commercial kitchen stove ranges are commonly found inside the home or small kitchens, industrials are commonly found inside fast food places, even fine diners, and restaurants. However industrial ranges can be purchased for use in-home, but they carry a large price tag and it may not be the best investment unless you have an extremely large family.

When shopping around for stove ranges it is important to consider which kind of range will work for you. It is advised to look into the different stove ranges and to do some research into them.

Also, there are different brand names out there for ranges, and each carries different features with them. Stove range brand names are not only commercial but apply to industrial ranges as well. So when picking out a range look into what is needed for your and one that you feel safe cooking with.
