Commercial Ranges

Commercial Ranges are a staple in a wide variety of restaurants. With the proper training and the right range for the job, cooking can become a fun, easy task. From fast food to the local diner, purchasing the proper range can give your business the edge it needs to survive in the competitive food service industry. We offer stoves from the simple configuration of an all-burner commercial stove top with an oven base, to the combination range that has burners, a griddle, and a cabinet base in addition to an oven. Our commercial stoves come in a variety of sizes, from 16" or 24" for the small establishment, to 72" for the busiest full-scale restaurant. We ensure there are stoves on our site that will fit your space, budget, needs, and even personality.

Should I use gas or electric?

The type of range, whether gas or electric, can many times depend on the installation process. When considering a gas range, it is important to keep in mind where your gas line connection is in regards to where you wish to position the range. The same idea can apply to electric appliances and outlet availability or, if needed, electrical outlet installation. The best method is to contact someone experienced in range installation to determine which connection will work best for your establishment.
Gas fueled ranges are all about speed. They heat up more quickly than electric models, and are more cost effective upon purchase. They also normally offer a higher maximum temperature. They are even cheaper to buy. But sometimes, electrical ranges are the only option due to city codes involving gas versus your location. A good general rule is, when you have the option to go with gas, gas is the better all-around choice.

What sizes are available?

We offer ranges from as small as 16" with 2 burners, to 72" with 12 burners. The standard sizes, though not the only ones we sell, are 24", 36", 48", 60", and 72". Our salespeople are experts in helping choose which size is right for your business.

What kinds of configurations are there? What about bases?

For the cook top, ranges can have any combination of burners, griddles, hot tops, and charbroilers. Some specialty ranges even have a fryer as part of their cook tops. Bases can be any variety of standard ovens, cabinets, convection ovens and modular storage areas. Typically, ranges above 36" will offer 2 bases, with 60" and 72" being able to support 2 full-size ovens.
