WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE KITCHEN APPLIANCES
Choosing new appliances for your kitchen can be exciting; however, it is not a purchase you make on a whim and requires a lot of thought. The appliances you choose will depend on several factors including kitchen layout, fuel type, features, finish, brand, and budget. Here are a few things you need to know before going shopping.
A range is a freestanding appliance that has burners on top and an oven below. It serves many purposes and can be configured with a variety of different features. Ranges can be electric, gas, or dual fuel – meaning the burners will be gas and the oven will be electric.
A cooktop is an alternative to a range that is installed into the countertop surface and can be electric, gas, or induction.

It can be installed on an island or against a perimeter wall and is a great solution for families who like to entertain.
