Dual-Fuel Ranges are the perfect addition to any home chef’s kitchen! Perfect for those who have a passion for baking and getting down and dirty with frying and sautéing! Before you purchase, there are a few things you need to know before you make your decision.
Most importantly, for a dual-fuel range to work, it has need to be connected to a proper gas line for the cooktop, as well as an outlet with sufficient voltage for the oven. A dual fuel range needs a 240/208-volt power source. If you do not have a gas line currently in your kitchen, one can be installed, which can be an extensive project so we recommend contacting a trusted contractor.
Once you have made sure you have the appropriate power and gas sources, the list of pros and cons is rather short.
- Offers superior heat for frying, sautéing, and boiling
- The electric oven helps to provide precise oven heat controls - making baking a breeze!
- Gorgeous, high-quality appliances that will last a lifetime
- Bake and cook at the same time - aka make dinner and dessert at the same time.
- More expensive than traditional ranges
- An electric oven may preheat slower than a gas oven (excluding those models with fast preheat options)
- Dual fuel ranges require multiple power sources, you’ll need a proper gas line for the cooktop and an outlet with sufficient voltage for your oven
That’s it! It really comes down to what you are looking for in your range and your budget. Kitchly offers a wide variety of dual fuel ranges in multiple styles, sizes, and finishes - all with fast and free shipping!
