For your next stove, you have to pick between gas or electric, countertop or free-standing, slide-in or drop-in. Sound confusing? Not really. Depending on your current kitchen configuration you might only have one way to go. In other words, just because you “inherited” a stove doesn’t mean you have to stick with it; you just might have to stick with the type of stove you buy. Of course, you could opt for a complete kitchen remodel and then you can have your pick of stoves. Before going down that road, consider these options:
The cooktop and wall oven set offers a lot of flexibility because they aren’t connected. Your stovetop can be in one area while your oven can be further away. This type of set up requires a bit more installation expertise. The price range for the cooktops is $250 to $1,500 and $400 to $2,000 for the wall oven units.
Freestanding ranges are the single unit ovens or an all-in-one model. These are way easier to install but you have to make sure your cabinet measurements are exact. There is a standard width for these stoves but it’s always best to double check. These models can cost you anywhere between $700 and $1,599.
As for gas versus electric, with the gas ovens these are quick to power up and there is no doubt when they are turned on! Gas ovens can cost from $250 to $21,000. Comparing side by side with an electric oven will show you that the gas ovens are a bit pricier. However, they are cheaper to run so they can pay for themselves in no time at all.
No matter which new stove you settle on you’ll still have to get rid of your old stove. Here is where a company like Junk King Gold Country will be a huge help. When you contract Junk King for any type of removal job, they’ll be sending over a two-man crew and huge truck to get the job done. This is vital for something like taking out an old stove.
