Is your Connection Gas or Electric?

  • Electric

    Available with traditional coil heating elements or ceramic glass cooktops.

    Benefits:Cooking elements provide consistent, even heat. Oven heats evenly and quickly. Ceramic cooktops are easy to clean.

    Requirements:Connect to electric for cooktop, oven, clock and lights. Ceramic cooktops need special cleaners.

    Look for:Hot surface indicators for added safety. Convection fan to circulate oven air for shorter baking times.

  • Gas

    Most gas ranges can be connected to a natural gas or propane line.

    Benefits:Visible flame provides precise control over a wide range of temperature settings. Burners retain little heat when turned off - so cooking stops almost immediately.

    Requirements:Connect to gas line for cooktop and oven and to electric for clock and oven lights.

    Look for:Electronic ignition to light burners instantly. Sealed burners for easy cleanup.
