Kenmore Elite Induction Range
Previously available in the U.S. only on cooktops, induction technology now has spread to ranges. The 30-inch slide-in and freestanding induction ranges from Kenmore Elite use electricity to create a magnetic field that heats your pots and pans rather than the stove's four burners. AirGuard technology traps cooking odors from the large 5.8-cubic-foot convection oven. Last but not least: a warming drawer. Kenmore Elite
Fisher & Paykel Tall DishDrawer
A taller interior design gives this dishwasher drawer plenty of space for larger dishes while maintaining a sleek design.

With a customizable racking system and the freedom to run just one drawer or both at the same time, the Tall DishDrawer makes cleaning up a breeze. Fisher & Paykel
Range Style: Freestanding Ranges
An extremely common type of range style, freestanding ranges are paneled on each side and can be placed in between cabinets, at the end of a counter, by themselves, or next to other appliances. They will usually have a bottom drawer for storage, or in some instances, a broiler compartment.
Freestanding ranges are usually cheaper than comparable slide-ins or drop-ins and also have more available sizes and features.
Range Style: Drop-In Range
Drop-in ranges provide the most integrated look of any range style. They are dropped into a space between cabinetry, and a panel that matches the cabinets goes across the bottom area of the range. Drop-in ranges typically do not have a bottom drawer for pots and pans (this is the main difference between a drop-in and a slide-in range.
A drop-in range can be used in kitchens where space is limited and a more traditional range could be cumbersome. Drop-in ranges can be slimmer than standard ranges and fit in smaller and tighter spaces.
Additional Range Features: Convection Ovens
Fagor Side-Opening Oven
With a left or right side-opening door and telescopic gliding racks, this 24-inch convection wall oven from Fagor America provides maximum access to the interior even in a small space. The Celeris preheat booster function raises the oven's temperature to 400 degrees in less than five minutes, helping to reduce overall cooking time. Fagor America
Additional Range Features: Griddles
Griddles are a flat cooking surface typically made from steel or cast iron. Items like eggs, pancakes or sandwiches are placed directly on the griddle, as the flat surface allows them to be easily lifted with a spatula. Griddles look similar to French tops, but the main difference is that griddles provide a constant heat over the entire surface, while French tops are the hottest at the center and provide less heat on the sides.
Seasoning & cleaning: Much like a cast iron frying pan, griddles need to be seasoned with cooking oils before use. Seasoning your griddle keeps food from sticking on it, helps give food extra flavor, and most importantly, fights corrosion and rust. Your range manufacturer should have instructions for the best way to season the griddle.
Griddles can usually be cleaned with warm water after each use (you might want to add a little more cooking oil after each cleaning). When you do want to do a complete clean and remove old seasoning, use white vinegar or club soda. For best results, follow the instructions from your range manufacturer.
