When it comes to choosing an oven, you have two primary options: a full kitchen range or a wall oven. If you're just replacing your current appliance, you may want to choose the kind that fits the existing setup and wiring in your kitchen. If you're doing a full remodel, on the other hand, you'll have more versatility in your decision. You can find gas and electric models for both wall ovens and ranges. You can also find dual fuel ranges if your biggest concern is having both a gas cooktop and an electric oven.
