Compare the possibilities of cooking gas stoves. British thermal units per hour (BTU / hour) are the standard measurement for the ability to cook. Heat output per hour for standard stoves varies from 4500 to 11000 BTUs. Choose models with a higher BTU rating for more efficient cooking
Choose a gas stoves suitable for the type of gas you have. Natural gas supplied to your home through utilities is standard in most cities. In rural areas, liquid propane or liquefied gas enters the house from the reservoir. If you have liquefied gas, you must purchase a conversion kit for your range to work properly.
Choose a gas stoves with sealed burners. Cleaning is much easier when food cannot spill into the hotplates, but is limited to the hob. Look for a range with a raised edge around the perimeter. Spillovers are less likely to pass over the edge and onto the floor if there is an edge.
Evaluate the stoves that have burners with different output capabilities. For example, a high power burner is useful for boiling water quickly and heating food. A slow burner has a lower energy output.
Look for a stoves with easy to read controls. Consider whether you really need all the electronic features offered, or you would also be happy with the model that uses simple dials to control the heat. Look for stoves that offer locking features so that children cannot access the hob and oven.
Consider the size of your family and what you plan to cook on the range and in the oven. Look for stoves with easy-slide oven shelves. Choose a stove that has at least five rack settings for the most cooking options inside the oven. Choose a double oven range if you do a lot of baking. For easy cleaning, choose a model with a self-cleaning oven.
Read the warranty for gas stoves that you plan to purchase. Some warranties extend over long periods of time, while others expire if you move a stoves from its original location.
