What is the best Pro Range? It depends on how you cook…
The best professional ranges can achieve a high BTU power output and a precision simmer to bring you more versatility in your kitchen. Pro Ranges come in many different sizes 30", 36", 48", and even 60".
There are many different options for the tops. This can be different types of burners, griddles, double griddles, grills, French tops, induction tops and even a sous vide. This allows you a lot of versatility in your cooking abilities.
Make sure you always have proper ventilation over your range so you can capture all the heat, smoke and grease.
There are a few different combinations in fuel types - all-gas or dual fuel. All gas uses only gas in the top and the oven, whereas dual fuel uses gas on the top and electric ovens. This allows you
to decide if you like to bake, roast, broil or any other kind of oven cooking that may benefit from a certain fuel type.
Some ranges have smart features that include touchscreens, intelligent cooking modes, and even Wi-Fi connectivity which allows you to control the range through your phone.
