Chefs usually prefer gas ranges
because heat output can be greater and easier to control. Gas ranges can have either open burners
, which are cheaper and more efficient, or sealed burners
that are easier to clean. Upgrades include larger oven window, self clean function, oven convection element, warming drawer and additional burners. The standard range size is 30"
, while you can buy a four-burner range at 20" and 24"wide.
