A gas cooktop is a good investment for the avid cooker, as gas cooktops are a better source of heat than a conventional electric stove top. They can be bought in individual units or in complete gas kitchen ranges. The easiest place to find these is online. However, they are also available via a quick trip to your local appliance store.
Online sources for gas cooktops
Gas ranges can be bought from a number of major online retailers. Whether you choose to go to a website run by a big box store like Sears or prefer a specialty vendor, depends on your budget and how serious you are about your kitchen heat source. Here are a few places online where you can find a gas cooking stove: Ajmadison Big discount sites like Ajmadison.com will sell you cooktops of a lightly lower quality at a discounted price. Dacor Specialty premium brands like Dacor (Dacor.com) have a wide variety of premium ranges and stoves available for a higher price. However, these products come from a more trusted source and are more thoroughly tested. Applicance websites Big appliance websites like Ge, Kenmore, and Sears have good offers. However, their lack of variety can frustrate the more selective consumer of kitchen applicances.
Stores, big and small
Appliance stores and more general retailers in your area likely sell gas cooktops for a number of reasons ranging (no pun intended) from use during emergencies to alternatives to an open flame when camping. Sears Sears is the most reliable big brand for looking for gas cooktops. However, their appliances tend to be less durable than their competitors. Besides, while they offer complementary repair services in case anything would happen to your gas range, they charge through the nose just to walk through the door. Important advice For the sake of quality, avoid big retail stores which do not have a large focus on appliances but might offer gas cooktops through a smaller appliance department. The quality is not worth it and often the goods can be found for a lower price. Used appliance warehouse stores Finally, used appliance warehouse stores are an excellent place to look. They give generous discounts on many items, and the majority of the appliances in their stores look and perform as if they are brand new. Final word Buying a new range is a big decision. So, before making any purchase, shop around and find out where you can get the best deal.
