Trying to choose between a gas and electric range? It’s a tough decision. After all, gas ranges deliver quick and accurate heating, but electric ovens are safer and efficient. While gas and electric ranges have been around for decades, the perfect solution wasn’t invented until 2009: the dual fuel range. A dual fuel range is a combination of a gas cooktop and an electric oven, so you get the best of both worlds.
There are many ways to customize your range. You can expand the amount of burners on your stove, all the way up to six. This means your range is going to be larger, which creates even more cooking space in your oven. Additionally, you can opt for electric convection features in the oven.
Experience the Benefits of Both Worlds
Most people who spend a lot of time cooking would choose a gas range over a purely electric one. Gas tends to give chefs a faster cooking time with a more easily controlled and evenly distributed heat. Cooking power can be adjusted much more easily with gas, as you simply lower the flame a bit when you turn down the dial. After you’re finished, cleaning up a gas range is quite straightforward – in most cases, you lift up the ceramic or cast iron grates and wipe clean. However, some electric ranges require special cleaning procedures or tools.
Unfortunately, cooks that love gas stovetops don’t always share the same passion for their gas ovens. Many home chefs complain about their gas oven’s inability to heat evenly. They often have to adjust the temperature and modify the cooking time when baking items that follow a recipe, which could make scheduling meals tricky or result in food that’s been burned or undercooked.
In fact, many consumers would probably choose an electric oven over a gas one. If you’re looking for an appliance that is a little more efficient, the electric oven is the winner. Electric ovens provide much more specific temperature control, as electric heat is more accurate in an oven setting. Another plus for electric ovens is that you can equip an electric model with a convection feature, which helps speed up the cooking process and makes hotter temperatures easier to maintain.
The beauty of a dual fuel range is that you don’t have to choose between a gas cooktop and an electric oven. When you decide to go with a dual fuel range, it can make a world of difference in your ability to create something amazing in the kitchen. For the true culinary connoisseur, you can elect to expand your range’s options with more burners and an extra oven. The customizability of a dual fuel range means that you can build one that fits your cooking style.
When it’s time for an appliance upgrade in your home, don’t settle. Get a range with the benefits of both gas and electric cooking, and turn preparing meals for your family from a chore into something you truly enjoy.
General Summary of Proposition 65
The “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” (more commonly referred to as ‘Proposition 65’)
was enacted to ensure that customers be properly warned when a product contains a substance known to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. The law requires the State of California to publish and maintain (annually) a list of substances
to be available to the general public. Additionally, the law requires that businesses properly notify residents of
the State of California about the presence of these substances in the products they purchase, or that may be present
in their homes, workplaces, or that otherwise may be released into the environment. The specific list contains a wide
range of naturally occurring and synthetic substances including manufacturing and construction chemicals, pesticides,
tobacco, food-additives, solvents, household products, drugs and byproducts created from a specific product usage.
You may have noticed the below warning label on our products, or on products from other manufacturers. The warning
has become increasingly commonplace and oftentimes raises questions about why the warning exists, and what it means
to a customer. The warning itself is just one of many requirements for businesses operating in and/or selling products
to customers in the the State of California. The warning does not mean that a product that includes the warning will
cause cancer or reproductive harm, but rather it simply is provided in order to educate the consumer that a substance
may exist. A large number of the substances listed under Proposition 65 have been in regular use for many years
without any documented harm to a consumer. This is due to the low concentrations and minimal exposure that actually
occurs with these substances. Those chemicals, however, have been determined by the State of California to be listed
as potentially harmful.
I don’t live in California. Why did my product include this warning?
In order to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements we have determined that all products manufactured by
Living Direct Inc, including products sold under the EdgeStar, Avallon and Koldfront brands, should include the
above-referenced warning label. This labeling requirements exists for all of our products regardless of the
location / destination to which the product is ultimately sold and/or shipped.
We believe that our products, when used as designed, are not harmful and as such this warning is provided
in order to properly conform to the requirements of Proposition 65.
