A free-standing range is the traditional type of oven found in many homes, with the cooking surface on top and the oven below. These stoves also usually come with a storage drawer for pans and baking sheets. You can take free-standing ranges with you when you move.
Built-in ranges have the oven built into the wall and the cook top built on top of a counter or island. Built-in ranges are easy and convenient to use, says Tony Almeida of The Maytag Store. The wall oven can be installed at waist level, which means that you don’t have to bend over to use it, providing maximum comfort and usability. Because built-in ranges have a separate wall oven and cook top, they can be installed at different heights. Built-in ranges are also space-savers—built-in microwaves can be built into a wall instead of having to be placed on the countertop, which maximizes counter space.
Slide-in ranges combine the best of regular free-standing and built-in ranges. Slide-in ranges give the look of a built-in, but use up less space. The controls are on the front, so there is no console at the back with the clock and other controls. They sit on top of your counter as opposed to next to it, which allows for a more finished, sleeker look.
