Cooktops, Ovens, Warming Drawers and Ranges

Cooking: that’s the purpose of the kitchen. Choosing the equipment that enables the cook to roast, bake, broil, and sauté should be based on solid, practical considerations. The question of determining which appliance or appliance combination best suits the workspace and the homeowners’ cooking style can be determined by using a systematic approach. First choose between residential and commercial equipment. Then select the appliance style: built-in, dropped in, or slide in. Specifying the type of ventilation system is the next step. Now determine the heat source: gas or electric. And finally the method of heat transference: convection, conduction, or radiation.
