WHAT DOES ‘DUAL FUEL RANGE’ ACTUALLY MEAN?

Dual fuel offers the responsiveness of gas heat on the cooktop and the consistent, even heat of electric power in the oven. Both a gas and electric hook-up are required for a dual fuel range.

Dual fuel ranges allow you to cook with the responsive, hands-on experience of an open flame, while also relishing the consistent, even heat that an electric oven can provide. A dual fuel range may be your best fit for baking exquisite pastries, charring peppers and searing filets.

HOW DO DUAL FUEL RANGES WORK?

Dual fuel ranges utilize both a gas line connection and an electrical outlet. The cooktop employs open flames covered by grates to heat cookware, allowing for easy adjustment of heat intensity. Meanwhile, the electric oven relies on heating elements that cycle on and off to maintain precise temperatures inside the oven cavity.

DUAL FUEL RANGES VS. ALL GAS RANGES

Dual fuel ranges offer versatility, combining a gas cooktop with an electric oven. Gas cooktops allow you to try different cooking techniques and enjoy responsive heat with quick response times. Gas ovens, however, may have temperature variations due to slower cycling, while electric ovens maintain a consistent temperature and, when coupled with convection, reduce the need for dish rotation.
