What is a Drop-in Range?

A drop-in range is an electric kitchen range that fits into customized cabinetry in your kitchen. Instead of sliding into an open space in your cabinetry, like a slide-in range, or fitting anywhere in your kitchen, like a freestanding range, drop-in models require the custom design of your cabinets to snugly house the stove.
