Stoves | Ranges

Pair of plan drawings of typical electric and gas kitchen stoves

Stoves, often referred interchangeably as ranges, are common kitchen appliances consisting of an oven and cooktop used for cooking food. Evolved from early clay stoves used to enclose a cooking fire completely, the modern household stove efficiently combines the necessary functions of a thermally insulated heating chamber (oven) and a heating surface (cooktop). Kitchen ranges today are available as either natural gas or electric powered appliances, and are designed as either freestanding, slide-in, or drop-in units.
