Finding the gas range that is perfect for your cooking needs can be a challenging task. In this review we take a closer look at three of the best 24-in. gas ranges of 2021. These three ranges give you great options, including Italian elegance, affordable quality, and commercial-grade performance. Any of these compact cooking units will provide the power you need to cook delicious dishes on the cooktop and in the oven.
Check out this gas range from ILVE's Professional Plus Series, handcrafted in Italy by specialist craftsmen who have an eye for detail and a passion for quality. This high-end range comes in white with a chrome trim and four sealed brass burners rated up to 15,500 BTUs. The heavy-duty cast iron grates create a continuous surface over the burners, allowing you to slide pots and pans across the cooktop easily. A dual function triple ring burner offers high power, suitable for cooking with a Chinese wok. You can turn off the flames on the outer ring to lower the power, so you can then use it for simmering. The oven has a 2.4 cu. ft. capacity, and can be used as a true European convection oven or a conventional oven thanks to its multitude of cooking modes, including a Pizza mode. A defrost feature helps thaw out frozen foods without drying them out as microwave does. The grilling mode and rotisserie mode work by heating the upper elements simultaneously, creating infrared heat above the food. Keep your prepared food warm by placing them in the warming drawer below the oven, which can double as a storage drawer for pots and pans. Thermocouple safety valves shut off the gas supply in case of malfunction, giving you greater peace of mind.
If you're looking for a gas range with a modest price, take a look at this model from Beko. There are four burners offering up to 10,000 BTUs. Two cast iron continuous pan supports allow you to slide pots and pans across the cooktop. Clean spills and splatters easily from the durable enamel burner plate, designed to be both beautiful and easy to clean. The oven has a spacious capacity of 2.51 cu. ft. and is brightly lit on the inside for full visibility of all your food. The non-reflective enamel surface reduces glare on the two-pane, heat-resistant glass door. All Beko gas ranges come with a gas safety valve that automatically shuts off the gas supply if the broiler extinguishes.
This gas range from American Range's Performer Series offers four open burners with infinite flame settings up to a powerful 25,000 BTUs. The burners come in three different sizes, and blue LED lights let you know when a burner flame is lit. Auto-ignition and re-ignition ensures you won't have to manually relight a burner if it goes out. The porcelainized burner pans catch spills, so you can lift them out for easy cleaning. Transferring your pots and pans over the burners is easy thanks to continuous commercial-grade cast iron grates. The oven has a large capacity of 3.7 cu. ft., great for cooking big meals. You can get all the benefits of American Range's convection oven technology, which ensures even heat distribution throughout the interior. Oven functions include Standard Bake, Convection Bake, Infrared Broil, and Fan Mode. Cook food quickly with an intense heat of up to 30,000 BTUs. There are two durable chrome racks inside the oven, which can be adjusted to six cooking levels. This model rounds up our review of the best 24-in. gas ranges of the year.
How do I choose a gas stove?
As you check out different gas ranges, look for high-performance burners, easy-to-clean burner plates, continuous cast iron grates, and the right size oven capacity for your needs. You may also want to consider gas ranges featuring convection oven capabilities. Some ranges will include a storage drawer underneath for pots and pans.
Why do chefs prefer gas stoves?
Chefs appreciate the benefits of gas stoves, including faster cook times, precise heat control, and easy-to-clean cooktops. Gas stoves also make it possible to cook with woks and cookware that is not perfectly flat on the bottom. When a gas stove malfunctions, the troubleshooting and repairs are generally easier to do than on an electric stove.
