KitchenAid is a home appliance brand that is a subsidiary of Whirlpool. This company has been in operation since 1919 and debuted as the Hobart Manufacturing Company. This firm specialized in developing stand mixers, which still lead the market today. However, as the company expanded into home appliances, it started to get noticed by bigger brands. Whirlpool eventually acquired KitchenAid in 1986 and continues to use the brand to reach consumers who are looking for affordable luxury.
Customers associate KitchenAid with quality appliances that last. This is why many people are happy with their stand mixers. So, of course, it would be a no-brainer to invest in other KitchenAid appliances.
Whether you are a long-time fan of the KitchenAid brand or just exploring it for the first time, there is a process to buy one of these ranges. Follow these tips to choose the best model for your needs.
- Measure your space. The best way to eliminate irrelevant ranges is to filter appliances by size. Make sure you don’t fall in love with a range that is too big for your kitchen.
- Identify the best fuel source. Consider whether you want a gas, electric, dual fuel, or induction range. If gas or dual fuel is your preferred fuel type, check to make sure your home has the gas lines and hookups you need to support flame-filled cooking.
- Explore extra features. Learn more about various KitchenAid range features to see which ones appeal to you. Decide if you want a convection oven, Wi-Fi connectivity, or steam options.
- Set a budget. Make sure your desired ovens and stovetops fall within your price range.
- Choose a color! Some KitchenAid models come in a variety of neutral and vibrant colors, from avocado cream to yellow pepper. Know which styles will look best in your space.
Start your evaluation process with online research by exploring KitchenAid ranges available at Spencer’s TV & Appliance. Here are a few different KitchenAid range styles and models to choose from for your Arizona kitchen.
Electric ranges are the top choices for customers who don’t have gas hookups or who want easy cooking experiences. Electric burners have become increasingly flexible over the years, with manufacturers developing different sizes and power levels. Advanced technology allows these burners to heat up quickly, which means your electric range can compete with the power of a gas model.
This is the first unit you should explore if you are interested in adding a KitchenAid range to your home. There are five cooking elements on the glass stovetop, including a triple cooking zone at six, nine, and 12 inches. There is also a dedicated warming zone, which is ideal for keeping food hot or heating up delicate ingredients (like melting butter).
Enjoy the Even-Heat™ true convection system when you use the oven. The unique bow-tie coil design produces flawless cooking results by ensuring your food is evenly baked, regardless of where it is placed in the oven. You can quickly learn how to cook with convection systems, lowering your cooking times, so your food is ready faster than ever.
Read customer reviews to learn more about this range and what it’s like having it in your kitchen. One buyer writes, “Having other Kitchen Aid appliances I knew it was a dependable brand name I could trust. The oven is large enough to hold my largest pans. I cooked for 20 people this Christmas dinner and had no worries about space.”
People who use gas ranges are often deeply loyal to this cooking option. In one survey, 73 percent of consumers who have gas ranges say they work better than electric options. More than half (54 percent) worry that cooking food on an electric range will take longer.
KitchenAid offers multiple gas range options, so you can buy from your favorite brand while still getting the gas stove you need for your home.
The slide-in range comes with five different burners, each of which is protected by cast iron grates. These grates are easy to remove when you need to clean your range and can support even the heaviest pots and cookware. Each burner has different power levels, ranging from 5,000 BTU for the lowest heat up to 17,000 BTU for the powerful flames.
The cooktop knobs are located on the front of the appliance, while glass touch controls to regulate the oven are just above them. Inside the oven are seven different rack positions based on where you want to place your dishes. This includes a steam rack that provides extra moisture inside the oven.
Read buyer reviews to learn more about this range. One customer writes, “I am very happy with my new stove, which I have had for about a month now, I can bake bread again (which was a major frustration with my previous stove) and the burners heat up much faster than I was used to.”
If you have a little extra space in your kitchen, consider this gas range with a total of six burners, including a 20,000 BTU Ultra Power™ dual-flame burner. This allows you to have a commercial-quality appliance in your home. This unit can also match your design preferences because it comes in nine different colors. Choose a passion red range or an ink blue model to highlight your design style.
You can see why people love this KitchenAid range by reading customer reviews about the appliance. One buyer says, “The range has plenty of burners to cook several things at a time. The oven is very wide and can fit 2 cookie sheets side by side…Great product for someone who loves to cook and bake.”
As you explore different KitchenAid range options, you will encounter appliances combining various technology and cooking methods for greater cooking flexibility. This is the main benefit of choosing a dual-fuel range for your home that uses gas and electricity, giving home chefs the best of both worlds.
Consider this model if you want the precision of gas for the stove with the simplicity of an electric oven. The five burners range in cooking power from 5,000 to 16,000 BTU, so you can set your pot to boil or simmer a delicate sauce you don’t want to break.
This range proves that you don’t need wall space to enjoy the luxury of double ovens. You can use the smaller oven when you have flatter dishes (like baking cookies or making pizza) and enjoy how the space heats up quickly because it is more compact. The second oven is larger and able to handle your Sunday roasts and Thanksgiving turkeys. Both ovens come with the EasyConvect™ conversion system.
Read buyer reviews to learn about this dual range. One person writes, “I have used both the convection and steam rack feature in baking bread, and it came out very well. Have also used the broiler & griddle and was impressed with them also. Ovens and burners seem very accurate and are easy to operate and clean.”
