Ranges: Stoves & Ovens - Future Shop
Whether you’re baking muffins for your child’s school bake sale or mixing up a quick stir fry for dinner, your stove is an indispensible tool for preparing food almost every day. When it’s time to upgrade to a new stove choose from Future Shop’s wide selection of stoves, ranges, ovens, cooktops and more. Read on for useful tips on how to make an informed decision for selecting your new appliance.
Gas vs. Electric
The two main types of stoves are gas and electric, and you’ll most likely choose based on how your house is equipped. (It’s possible to change your fuel source, but you’ll most likely need to do some extensive renovations.) Gas ranges incur lower costs in the long term and provide quick, precise control of heat, while electric stoves are more commonly available and give you more even baking.
Built-in and Slide-in Ranges
These ranges don’t have finished side panels because they’re designed to be surrounded by cabinetry on both sides, giving them a tight, cohesive fit with your kitchen counter and cabinets.
Electric Wall Ovens
These space-saving appliances fit right into your wall, giving your kitchen a sophisticated, professional look. Having your oven built into the wall gives you the flexibility of placing your cooktop in a separate location.
Depending on the layout of your kitchen you can place a cooktop on a centre island or on a convenient counter without having to worry about making space for an oven as well. Induction cooktops use a specialized magnetic field to create heat in your cookware, not on the cooktop surface, resulting in faster, more energy-efficient cooking and easier cleanup.
Look for range hoods that have quiet fans, bright lighting systems, removable parts for easy cleaning, and a design that complements your stove.
