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. Unlike drop-in ranges, these models reach all the way to the floor, and often have bottom drawers that complement the kitchen design, adding to the custom look. Both gas and electric models are available for your kitchen.
