As the kitchen is the heart of the home, so the range is the heart of the kitchen. A kitchen’s fundamental purpose is to provide space to cook delicious meals. The range, the appliance combining an oven and stove, is the workhorse for the job. When buying a new range, one has the option of going pro. Are pro-style ranges worth it? Learn more here.
What Is a Pro-Style Range?
A professional style, or pro-style, range is a range with a higher Btu level and the look and feel of a commercial range in an everyday home. Instead of fitting a commercial range into the house, which could be bulky and unappealing, manufacturers decided in the 1980s to design appliances that fit into regular kitchens but still provided a higher heating power than the normal kind.
Pro-style ranges typically can produce up to 25,000 Btus, unlike a regular unit, which can only produce up to 18,000 Btus. You will also find pro-style ranges with gas-powered stoves, but some provide duel fuel with electric ovens.
In 2022, you can also find pro-style ranges in different styles with different features. More or less every major range manufacturer has its own spin on this type of appliance. You can find ranges in different sizes ranging from 30, 36, 48, and 60 inches wide. Some have two ovens, and some have features like a griddle, air fryer, warming drawer, etc. They typically cost between $3,000 and $20,000.
How Often Do You Cook?
Although people might have cooked much more during the past two years, some people may prefer not to cook so much. If you are not a chef at heart, investing in a heavy-duty range with all the works may not be necessary. If you cook a lot and love to achieve professional status cuisine, then it might be worth looking into.
What Do You Cook?
Another factor might be what you cook. If you are not a big baker, you might not need a double oven, let alone a very large one. However, if your current meal repertoire can benefit from a higher level of cooking finesse, you might benefit from checking out the latest pro-style ranges.
