      Types of Ranges

      What is a Freestanding Range?

      A freestanding range is a kitchen range with finished side panels and a backsplash. This type of range can stand alone, at the end of a row of cabinets or in the middle of a countertop with cabinets. There are both gas and electric freestanding ranges to suit your personal preferences and needs. Some freestanding models are dual-fuel ranges, so you can combine the best of both options.

      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. Most drop-in ranges are flanked by cabinets and sit above matching woodwork or cabinetry for a streamlined custom design.

      What is a Slide-in Range?

      A slide-in range is a full-size kitchen range without the side panels that you might find on a freestanding range. This type of range slides between cabinetry for a custom kitchen look without the custom kitchen cost. Slide-in ranges have a wider lip at the top of the stove, which then rests on your countertop and creates the illusion of being built-in.
