Why Trust Us?

Does your kitchen range excite you? If your answer is no, it might be time to reconsider what you’re cooking on. For most home cooks, any regular range will do. But for those who get passionate about flavors and ingredients, a range that makes you want to explore the art of food is a must, and few other appliances capture that experience like a KitchenAid range. 

KitchenAid is so much more than just small countertop appliances, and its line of professionally-inspired ranges proves just that. To see just what makes these cooking appliances so great, all you have to do is give this guide a quick read, where we review KitchenAid ranges from price and features to the best models on the market.

About KitchenAid

It’s hard to find an appliance brand as synonymous with the experience of cooking as KitchenAid. Founded over 100 years ago, KitchenAid has become the ally of bakers for its stand mixers that can be found in both professional and domestic kitchens. Together with a full suite of kitchen products to match its small appliances, KitchenAid is more in tune with the modern home cook than ever before.

These days, you can find KitchenAid appliances alongside sister brands Whirlpool, Maytag, and JennAir. As part of the family of appliances, KitchenAid represents the affordable luxury market, merging the best of professional kitchens with modern practicality for everyday homes.

One of the best demonstrations of KitchenAid’s passion for cooking is its collection of professionally-inspired ranges. Taking a cue from the same cooking stations pro chefs cook on, these ranges are designed to offer the next level of performance while keeping prices relatively affordable. Rather than serving the elite, KitchenAid is inclusive and offers ranges that standard shoppers can budget in sizes that fit kitchens of most layouts.

Types of KitchenAid Ranges

No matter what kind of kitchen you cook out of, KitchenAid makes a range for you. However, it’s important to know which one is right for the setup you have.

  • KitchenAid freestanding ranges are the simplest options and are suited for cabinet cutouts 30”, 36”, or 48” wide. No major installation necessary; just slide into place, plug in, and start cooking!
  • KitchenAid slide in ranges offer a refined look with front control knobs and no back panel—a good option if you want to display a backsplash.
  • KitchenAid double oven ranges are great cooking setups for the multitasker. Place an entire menu to cook at the same time from the main course to dessert without having to worry about flavor transfer or temperature differences.
  • Don’t have space for an over the range hood? Explore KitchenAid downdraft ranges that have ventilation built right into the cooktop. The sleek design is able to produce up to 300 cubic feet of air circulation (CFM), or enough for a gas-powered range with up to 30,000 BTUs of output. 
  • For the ultimate KitchenAid range experience, there are the commercial-style stoves. This line is the most powerful from the brand and is designed around professional kitchens for a cooking setup that means and looks like business. The option of nine different color choices provides additional customization to let you jazz up your kitchen how you want.

Regardless of which kind of KitchenAid range you choose, you can explore models with four to six cooking zones across gas, induction, and duel fuel sources in a choice of 30”, 36”, or 48” widths. Additionally, KitchenAid ranges offer an abundance of oven space to accompany their cooktop arrangements. Oven capacities start at 5.8 cubic feet and go up to 7.1 cubic feet of oven volume fit for full-size households.

Ranges from the KitchenAid lineup fall within the mid-end to high-end price point, depending on the model, size, and features. Models from the brand’s core collection range between $1,700 and $4,000, while KitchenAid commercial-style ranges price between $5,900 and $12,800.

KitchenAid Range Features

See how KitchenAid uses innovative range features to inspire home cooks to do more in the kitchen.

Even-Heat True Convection: Unlike other convection systems, Even-Heat True Convection uses a special bow-tie fan paired with a heating element to push hot air evenly across every rack level.

EasyConvect Conversion System: Convection baking cooks 25 percent faster and at higher temperatures. With this feature, there’s no guesswork — built-in technology adjusts the time and heat settings, so there are no surprises.

Baking Drawer: Select KitchenAid ranges come with a fully functioning bottom drawer that can be used for proofing dough or slow-cooking meals.

Ultra Power Dual-Flame Burners: Go from 20,000 BTUs to a delicate flame on a single burner.

SatinGlide Rack: These premium oven racks gently roll forward allowing users to grab items safely and easily from the interior.

If you enjoy cooking, want to upgrade the look and function of your kitchen, and are searching for a reliable appliance brand, KitchenAid is a major contender to consider. Pound for pound, KitchenAid stoves offer a lot of power, often comparable to higher-priced ranges from brands like Monogram or Thermador (Monogram caps out at 23,000 BTUs, while Thermador matches KitchenAid at 22,000). That’s all to say KitchenAid ranges are a great way to incorporate professional designs and horsepower at fraction of the cost of other luxury ranges.
