You are probably baffled by the amount of selection you have for a 36-inch professional range. They have evolved since their creation in 1990. You now have a choice of very simple yet powerful ranges, like a BlueStar range, or other products with more residential features like sealed burners, self-cleaning, and timer functions.
The best for you and your family depends on how you cook, so we will look at the best all gas ranges: Wolf, Thermador, BlueStar, Jenn-Air, and Miele.However, first, we will explain the difference between all gas and dual fuel. We did, however, write an article on Best Dual Fuel 36-inch Ranges and our recommendations are still different for dual fuel.
Dual Fuel vs. All Gas
Dual fuel is a dryer, more precise heat. It is better for baking. Straight gas is moister and better for roasting and broiling. Every dual fuel range is self-cleaning, but less than half of all gas ranges have a self-cleaning option. Wolf and Miele have also recenlty upgraded their dual fuel ranges. Miele has their MasterChef controls for push button controls whereas Wolf has twin convection and upgraded BTU power.
