This gas range is one of the best we've tested because it bakes evenly, short boil times, and has helpful smart features like remote preheat. Read More

Generally speaking, people are particular about the fuel or power source they choose to use for cooking in their homes. And if you've always used gas, you're probably going to want to continue to. While there’s no denying the benefits of induction cooking—superior heat, temperature control, efficiency—cooking with gas has a certain old-school appeal that’s hard to resist.

Gas stoves offer a more visceral cooking experience, and if gas is your fuel of choice, we’ve got you covered with some of the best gas ranges on the market today. Although larger options are available, 30 inches is the standard width for ranges. The ubiquity of 30-inch ranges means that anyone in the market to upgrade their cooking experience will have ample choice.

That’s where we come in: we’ll help guide you to the best gas range for you. If you’re in the market for a new 30-inch gas range, our current favorite is the GE JGB735SPSS (available at Home Depot for $1,078.00) . And we’ve also checked out other top picks at every price point.

Appliances purchases are a large investment of both money and time. We’ve not only compiled lists of the best appliances to shop, but also the best places to buy in-stock appliances right now and the best times of year to buy appliances to take advantage of sales and new releases.

The simple transitional design of the JGB735SPSS makes it an easy match for most kitchens.

The GE JGB735SPSS features an impressive oven that wowed us with its lightning-fast preheat and baking evenness. It even has an air fryer mode that works as intended.

In addition to the capable true convection oven, the GE JGB735SPSS features a versatile rangetop with four powerful gas burners. And it’s got a center griddle burner for morning fry-ups. The oven of the GE JGB735SPSS was the highlight in our testing, and performed basic tasks like preheating, roasting, and air-frying with aplomb.

The only area where it faltered was with multi-rack cooking, where it struggled to bake multiple batches of cookies. Despite this, it’s still a good buy considering its affordable MSRP.

If you’re always looking for the latest and greatest in smart appliance tech, then the GE JGB735SPSS is definitely not for you. The range is as feature-lite as they come, with nary a whisper of Wi-Fi or guided cooking modes. But it’s a solid choice for a simple gas range.

We were pleasantly surprised with the LRGL5825F’s competent air fryer mode.

The LG LRGL5825F is an ideal choice for any home-baking enthusiast in the market for an affordable, freestanding gas range. We were impressed with the oven's baking evenness and air fryer mode.

Like many products from LG, the range can be controlled and monitored remotely using your smartphone. In addition, the LRGL5825F features InstaView, which lets owners activate the interior light by knocking on the oven door. It’s a little gimmicky, to be honest, but its presence doesn’t detract from the range.

While the smart features are welcome, the real star of the show is the range's cooking performance. The capable, true-convection oven manages to bake and roast food evenly; plus, it features an unusually effective air fryer mode.

There’s a lot to like about the LRGL5825F, though it does falter in some areas. The preheat is interminably slow, and, for whatever reason, owners are required to purchase the air-fryer basket separately.

The slide-in Samsung NX60T8511SS is an utterly gorgeous, feature-rich gas range. Available in a series of stylish stainless steel trims, this is an elegant centerpiece with nice features like Wi-Fi connectivity and an Air Fry mode.

The range doesn’t only look good, it’s also a treat to use. The versatile cooktop has five well-spaced burners, so there’s plenty of room to work with if you have multiple pots and pans going at once. Other small touches like a soft-close door, racks that slide out easily, and the many cooking functions are appreciated.

However, while it may feel easy to use, its cooking performance will leave you wanting more. During testing, the convection mode produced inconsistent results. A determined home chef will find the optimum timings and temperatures to get the most out of the oven. But if you lack the time or patience for that, we’d recommend something else.

Aside from being a great range that cooks and bakes evenly, the big selling point of this Frigidaire is its built-in Air Fry mode.

It’s not surprising that large cooking appliance brands are looking to capitalize on the immense popularity of air fryers. Those obviously vary in size, but they’re all based on the same oven-convection technology. During testing, this range brought frozen french fries to crisp perfection using the air-fry rack much faster than it would have on a normal baking sheet.

None that we could find

This Haier QGSS740RNSS gas range excelled in every test we threw at it, from boiling water to baking cookies. It’s a good choice for serious home cooks, star bakers, and tech nerds looking to add to their smart appliance repertoire. We love its quick preheat, short boil times, and elevated stainless steel look, plus the cast-iron grates on the cooktop that promote even heat distribution.

This Haier range has all the bells and whistles: Steam Self-Clean, No-Preheat Air Fry, Scan-to-Cook, Frozen Pizza, Frozen Snacks, Simmer Burner. That said, many of its features are only accessible via the SmartHQ smartphone app, meaning you’ll need to have your device handy to use them.

The only other minor drawback we experienced with this range was the exposed rubber bumpers on the cooktop. They’re small, but a bit unsightly and could collect dirt and grime. Overall, we think this range would make a great addition to any kitchen.

In addition to the appliance experts in our lab, who conduct rigorous scientific testing, the Reviewed Kitchen and Cooking staffers are responsible for evaluating usability features and the overall cooking experience.

Not only do we perform repeatable, lab-based tests on these gas ranges, we also do real-world evaluations. That means we can tell you which will perform the best, will give you the most bang for your buck, or have the sleekest looks.

First, we measure the maximum and minimum temperature of each burner to help consumers identify which burners are ideal for simmering soup, and which burner can get hot enough to properly sear a steak.

A range or cooktop with multiple burners that can reach very high and/or very low temperatures will score well. If burners cannot reach very high or low temperatures—or if only one burner can do each task—scores will be lower.

We bake cookies in both standard bake and convection mode (if available) to see how evenly the oven can bake the cookies.

One happy side effect of testing ovens is that there are always extra cookies lying around the office. In addition to being delicious, lightly colored sugar cookies double as a cooking/baking proxy for other thin food items, such as fish or vegetables.

Keeping the cookies in a grid formation, we inspect them to determine how evenly baked they are, both within a baking sheet (regular baking mode and second oven baking mode) and between multiple baking sheets (convection bake mode). For an oven with convection to score well, it is important that the multiple food items on different racks be cooked or baked to the same degree.

While we obviously go to great lengths to test the cooking/baking abilities of these appliances, we also incorporate more subjective information into our overall assessment. For example, how easily can the cooktop surface accommodate multiple pots and pans? How easy is it to understand the control panel? How’s the feel of the burner knobs or buttons? How loud is the preheat notification noise?

We answer all of these questions and more in order to determine if there are any major drawbacks to the product that might not make it a good fit for most households.

• Gas: Natural-gas ranges offer faster boiling times and lower cooktop temperatures. But there’s a chance of uneven cooking due to the nature of a flame element.

• Electric: Electric rangers boil water more slowly and have higher temperatures overall, but they tend to cook things more evenly as well.

• Dual-fuel: Dual-fuel ranges are a hybrid option, combining a gas cooktop with an electric oven. This makes for fast boiling timings as well as a nice, even baking job thanks to the electric coil.

• Induction: Induction ranges boast super quick boiling times, along with extreme low and high heat. The potential downsides are pretty minor: They require induction-compatible cookware, you might have to adjust recipes, and they tend to be expensive.

Both gas and electric ranges have pros and cons that may make them more or less suited to your needs.

Gas stoves are generally more expensive than their electric counterparts, and can even cost more than induction, depending on what features are involved. Keep in mind that this initial expense will be offset by a decrease in your electric bill—gas is much cheaper than electricity.

If you need to install gas hookups to make the switch, however, the utility bill savings might not entirely cover the cost. Depending on your home’s design and location, installing a gas hookup can range from expensive to impossible. We recommend getting a quote before committing to a gas cooktop.

While induction ranges get all the accolades for being easy to clean, that doesn’t mean gas cooktops are particularly difficult to clean. All of the grates are removable to be washed individually.

If you have any burned-on stains, you can scrub them down with a wire brush and a water-baking soda paste. While that's more labor intensive than a quick wipe-down, it's no more difficult than cleaning a traditional electric range with coiled heating elements.

Slide-in gas ranges sit flush with your countertops for a seamless, built-in look. Freestanding ranges can sit wherever you have power and sufficient space. While this might seem like an arbitrary distinction, the real difference is that freestanding ranges are finished to look great from any angle. Slide-in ranges are assumed to have their side covered by cabinetry.

You’ll find the control panel on either the front or top of a slide-in range. Meanwhile, freestanding ranges tend to have back-mounted controls. And, oftentimes, the burner controls are found on that same panel.

If your current setup has the stove inside a countertop cutout or cabinet, you might consider replacing it with a freestanding or slide-in range. But that’s assuming it works with your dimensions. But if your range sits all by itself in the kitchen, or one of the sides is exposed, we’d recommend another freestanding model.
