How to Measure Your Range
When measuring a professional range for your home, start by measuring your existing appliance in the space your upgraded range will go. It’s best to know the allotted space you are working with, rather than simply buying the same size appliance without measuring.
Start by measuring the gas range width from the sides of the appliance. This will give you a good idea of your range's existing width. Be aware that some range widths may be just over or under the exact measurement of the range, as this accounts for the installation of the appliance.
Next, measure the height of your professional range from the top of the appliance (typically next to your countertops) to the bottom of the appliance. Do not measure the grates or raised burners of the range, as those are not considered in the total height of the range.
Then, measure your professional range from the back of the appliance to the front of it. When measuring, be sure to measure the body of the actual appliance to get the true depth of your range and not to include the knobs or handles, as those are not typically included in the depth measurement of your appliance.
If you are installing your professional range into custom cabinetry, be sure to speak to your designers and builders about the space they have planned for where the professionally-sized range will be placed.
