    Excellent

    The Samsung NX58H5600SS combines style, value, and practical features – making it one of the top-selling gas ranges on the market.

    This model from Samsung offers a five-burner experience with up to 17,000 BTU of power and a center oval burner that pairs well with the included removable griddle. Inside the gas-powered convection oven is 5.8 cubic feet of space, along with a top-mounted broiler. A self-cleaning function and storage drawer round out the list of value-added features. 

    People appreciate the stovetop cooking power offered by this gas range, and comment on the usefulness of the powerful 17,000 BTU burner for rapidly boiling water or providing high heat in an instant. The continuous grate system is becoming standard on many gas ranges, and it makes it easier to move pots around without having to lift them off the stovetop. This model also earns praise for its convection cooking abilities and the generous amount of space inside the oven.

    A few people complain of finish problems with this gas range, including an occasional broken knob or the finish flaking off the cooking grates. For best results, follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use and cleaning to minimize the chance of the parts prematurely wearing. 

    For under $700, this best overall gas range checks all the boxes for most home chefs that want to elevate their cooking experience. While more splurge-worthy options exist, the Samsung NX58H5600SS is easy to use and makes a practical choice.

    Excellent

    Another top-rated option is the sleek and well-equipped GE JGB700EEJES. Choose from a variety of fingerprint-resistant finishes to match this top-selling 30-inch gas range to your kitchen set, or select from classic looks like stainless steel, black, and white.

    This freestanding gas range offers a five-burner configuration with continuous grates that allow you to slide pots and pans across the range easily. The burners range from an 18,000 BTU power burner down to a 5,000 BTU simmer burner, so you can easily control the heat and intensity with which you’re cooking. A favorite feature of reviewers is the included non-stick griddle that lets you easily sizzle grilled cheese sandwiches, pancakes, and more for a crowd.

    Inside the oven, users are impressed with the 5.0 cubic feet of room and the convection cooking. A conventional top broiler is included, eliminating some of the hassle and frustration that bottom drawer broilers can cause.

All controls are front and center, as you would expect with a slide-in range. The burners are controlled by turn knobs and the oven controls are housed in an easy-to-use digital panel. 

    People often choose this slide-in range as a more affordable and practical alternative to high-end commercial ranges. In fact, many users of other commercial ranges favorably compare this Samsung slide-in gas range to professional models in terms of cooking ability and look but prefer the practical aspects of this Samsung model—including a self-cleaning mode.

    Runner-Up, Best Slide-In: Bosch HGI8054UC

    800 Series 30 in. 4.8 cu. ft. Slide-In Gas Range

     Courtesy of Home Depot

    Give your kitchen a sleek finish with the Bosch 800 Series slide-in gas range. While this model omits some of the bells and whistles found on other gas ranges, what it includes it does well. People give this slide-in range top marks for its quality and features, including its well-made metal knobs, sturdy continuous grate cooktop, and warming drawer. 

    The Bosch 800 Series features five burners but positions the powerful 18,000 BTU burner in the center of the range top. This keeps your major firepower centrally located, leaving the other four burners accessible for cooking side dishes, simmering sauces, etc. Remove the grates to clean the burners and give the range top a quick wipe up. 

    Inside the oven, you’ll find 4.8 cubic feet of space. A few people felt the oven capacity was on the small side, particularly for the price of this slide-in gas range. It’s probably better suited for typical household cooking needs and less ideal for roasting up a feast for supersized crowds. This gas range is pricey, but many people say they are believers in Bosch after using this model.

    Best Double Oven: Samsung NX58K7850SS

    Whirlpool 5.1 cu. ft. Gas Range in Stainless Steel

    For more convenience and flexibility, shop for a double oven gas range. The Samsung NX58K7850SS (also known as the Flex Duo) is an innovative model with smart features—like WiFi capabilities—that have made it a popular choice, including a double oven that can be converted into one large space for baking larger dishes.

    Samsung’s Flex Duo gas range features above-average range capabilities, including five burners with up to 18,000 BTU and a continuous grate system, along with a wok burner and center griddle or warming station. But where this double oven gas range really shines is inside the 5.8 cubic feet of oven space. The Flex Duo features a smart divider that enables you to utilize the space as two separate ovens (both with convection ability), or you can remove it for a larger oven with more room for cooking large dishes. This is a common downfall of double ovens, which sometimes require a sacrifice of space for the convenience of cooking at multiple temperatures.

    The Samsung NX58K7850SS also has built-in WiFi and can be monitored via a free app from the manufacturer. Determine whether any burners are on or begin preheating the oven with a touch from your smartphone. 

    In terms of more critical reviews, the knobs sometimes require occasional replacement, and the folding door for the dual oven allows you to open the top oven only or the entire oven cavity. Unfortunately, there’s no option to open just the bottom oven. So keep that in mind if careful temperature management is important to your cooking routine.

    Best Professional: KitchenAid KDRS407VSS

    Kitchenaid 4.1 cu. ft. Commercial-Style Slide-In Dual-Fuel Range

     Courtesy of HomeDepot

    Dual fuel ranges are the ultimate combination for cooks that want fast stovetop cooking and even baking and roasting. The KitchenAid KDRS407VSS comes at a steep price tag but offers the convenience of a gas range combined with the superior baking experience that an electric oven offers.

    This commercial-style gas range from KitchenAid is a great choice for gourmet chefs that want a high-end kitchen appliance that can keep up with anything that’s on the menu. The range top features four burners, including a 20,000 BTU power burner that can really turn up the heat. A continuous grate system is what you’d expect from a gourmet gas range. 

    Inside the oven, home chefs will be pleased to find 4.1 cubic feet of space. The electric heating element and convection cooking are frequently praised for their even cooking abilities. An in-oven broiler and three oven racks to fit five positions offer versatility and convenience. 

    Reviewers of the KitchenAid KDRS407VSS describe it as bulletproof and credit it with inspiring new culinary adventures. There are very few recurring complaints related to this duel fuel gas range and it earns a positive recommendation from nearly 100 percent of users. Its biggest shortcoming is the hefty price tag, but this gas range for gourmet cooks will pay off in terms of flexibility and versatility in cooking and baking paired with reliability.

    Best Large Capacity: LG Electronics LSG4513ST

    LG 6.3 cu. ft. Slide-In Gas Range with Probake Convection Oven

     Courtesy of Home Depot

    If you’re looking for a large capacity gas range that can cook for a crowd, look no further than LG’s massive gas range with 6.3 cubic feet of space. This model—LSG4513ST—is well-equipped to handle any cooking task with an oversized convection oven and five powerful burners on the range top. 

    People most often choose this gas range because of its large capacity. As one of the biggest gas ranges on the market (outside of commercial gas ranges), the LG LSG4513ST enables you to roast extra-large turkeys weighing more than 20 pounds or bake multiple dishes at once. For home chefs that like to host a crowd, this is an important feature. In addition, people comment on the efficiency and quality results from LG’s ProBake convection feature. Baked items, like cookies and bread, achieve even browning, and even roast chickens have perfect crispy skin according to reviewers. 

    The gas range itself features 5 burners that are equipped to keep pace with the supersized oven. An 18,500 BTU power burner can bring water to a rapid boil in no time, while a more delicate 5,000 BTU burner is perfect for simmering sauces. A removable center griddle is included if you want to prep pancakes or serve up grilled cheese for a group.

    The majority of purchasers give this large capacity gas range a rating of four or five stars, though a few people have encountered issues. One of the most common things to be aware of is that the front control knobs can accidentally turn on if you bump up against them, potentially releasing gas from the burner. However, it’s always important to use caution with a gas range and you should take basic safety precautions with any model purchased, including learning how to shut off the gas to the appliance if necessary.

    Best Budget: Whirlpool WFG505M0BS

    Whirlpool 5.1 cu. ft. Gas Range

    Courtesy of Home Depot 

    The Whirlpool WFG505M0BS is a budget gas grill that will have you cooking with gas without burning up your budget, thanks to its affordable price tag and no-frills approach.

    This basic gas range costs less than $800 and includes some of the modern features that cooks have come to expect and appreciate—like a sleek stainless steel finish continuous grate design, and five burners—including a larger powerful 15,000 BTU burner. Take note of the fact that the larger burners are located up front, which some users found inconvenient. However, others said that this configuration makes it easy to get a pot boiling and then slide it back to a smaller burner to simmer, thanks to the continuous grate design.

    One of the biggest drawbacks with this budget gas range (and many other models), is the bottom drawer broiler. Instead of a traditional in-oven broiler, you’ll need to open the door at the bottom of the range and move an oven rack down to use the broiler functionality. Users repeatedly find the broiler to be awkward and inconvenient to use. It also means that there is no bottom storage drawer for pots, pans, or baking sheets. You can also expect to put forth a little elbow grease and oven cleaner to make this budget gas range sparkle since it’s not equipped with a self-cleaning mode. 

    However, if all you need is a simple gas range that will let you turn up the heat in a hurry and offer 5.1 cubic feet of oven space, then you’ll likely be very satisfied with the affordable options of the Whirlpool WFG505M0BS.

Products Tested by

How We Tested

We bought a top-rated gas range that our reviewers tested for three months. We asked our testers to consider the most important features when using this gas range, from number of burners to oven features. We’ve outlined the key takeaways here so that you, too, know what to look for when shopping.

What to Look for in a Gas Range

Number of burners If you often juggle soup, sauces, vegetables, and a main dish all at once on the stove, you’ll no doubt prefer a stove that has more burners to choose from, so you can comfortably cook everything at once. If you love your oversized frying pans, Dutch ovens, and stockpots, a stove with fewer large burners might be the best choice.

Burner BTUs When it comes to BTUs, bigger isn’t always better—but it can be. A high-BTU burner can get your stockpot full of water to a rolling boil much faster than a lower-powered burner. However, if you like to cook foods at a very low simmer, a low-powered simmer burner is a good option to have. Don’t just look at the overall power, but consider how you cook and whether you need very high- or very low-powered burners.

Oven features Do you prefer a single large oven, or double ovens that aren’t as large? Neither is wrong, but the choice will affect the way you use the oven. Is convection important to you? Do you need an oven with a high maximum temperature or a self-cleaning option? No matter what you prefer, there’s likely to be an oven that has the features you need.

“This is a fantastic gas range,” raved one of our testers. “The cooktop and the oven are both large and spacious for a ton of simultaneous cooking.” Other highlights, according to our reviewers, include the self-cleaning feature and wide variety of burner sizes. “It even comes with a nonstick stovetop griddle for the large center burner,” one of our testers said. While one of our reviewers called it “a very handsome appliance,” she wished the range knobs were metal instead of hollow plastic that looks “cheap.”

One of our testers also mentioned the buzzer timer has no intervals, which can be annoying. Finally, one of our reviewers cautioned that you have to be careful if you aren’t used to a convection oven: “The oven bakes wonderfully fast, but cooking times may vary—I almost burned a batch of cookies with a 15-minute bake time,” she explained. “They finished baking in 10 minutes.”
