PG Used Appliances gives you a wide choice of used gas stoves. A used stove is made up of two parts. The top has several names, range, cooktop or stove top. The other part is the oven. Normally these two parts are together as a stove but sometimes there is just a cook top on an island and then there is a wall oven.
Some people feel that gas is best for the range / stove top and electric for the oven. There are some stoves called dual fuel stoves which have a gas range and electric oven. We don’t see many of those as used appliances. Most of our inventory is used electric stoves and used gas stoves.
Benefits of Gas Stoves
Negatives of Gas Stoves
Gas stovetop tip: A lot of people feel the bigger the burner the better. It will cook faster. WRONG! You need to match the burner to the pot or pan. If the burner is too big, most of the heat goes up the sides of the pot or pan and it is very inefficient. You need to use a burner that is smaller than the diameter of the pot so that most of the flame is hitting the bottom.
Features of Gas Stoves
The number of burners on the cooktop varies. Lower end, standard models have 4 burners. Premium models will have five or six burners. Removable cooktop griddles are another option. For the oven part, the standard stoves have an oven with two racks. Higher end models have 3 racks and the ovens are larger. Many ovens have a storage bin underneath the oven. Finishes include stainless steel which tends to be more expensive as well as white or black porcelain finish. Another option available is self-cleaning ovens. No one has figured out a self-cleaning cooktop although that would be nice. More expensive models have an oven that can run as a convection oven which cooks faster. These higher end models will also have hidden heating elements in the oven which makes cleaning easier.
