Appearance is a major consideration for people on the market for a stove. An examination of numerous online opinions indicates that appearance is the #3 most discussed factor by stove owners. It is no wonder really, as ranges are big, chunky machines, which take up lots of kitchen space. But what makes a stove beautiful?
According to users, the most attractive ranges are the models with 5 burners (rather than 4). For the most part, slide-in models receive higher ratings for appearance than their freestanding counterparts, particularly in electric ranges. Slide-in units are designed to fit between two cabinets, creating a built-in look in the kitchen, which appeals to many users.
Surprisingly, price has little to do with the stove's look: most of the leading products in this category are sold online for $1000-$1500, which is within the medium price range. Another plus is that the ranges with the best appearance ratings are consistently praised by users for their high quality, easy controls and even performance.
