Gas cook top and single oven vs range? Please share your rec's

thedorkMarch 11, 2013

My budget is around 2.5K - 3K so at first I was into getting a 30" Berta ( like a range with legs, look and performance is good ) but now I want to explore what I can get as good quality 30" gas top + single oven on the bottom.

Please share your rec's? Pros and cons? Thank you!

Doing a cooktop and wall oven is more expensive than doing a range. Also, placing a wall oven under a cooktop makes it be lower to the ground than the one in the range. It's harder to get stuff in and out of. Your counter costs more because you're now paying for the whole section plus a cutout rather than two pieces on either side. Traditionally this has only been done because somone wanted a gas cooktop with an electric oven. With modern dual fuel appliances available, most of that reason has gone by the wayside.

I'd strongly suggest exploring an induction range rather than gas. It's as responsive as gas, but with less heat lost into the home.
