Stoves are hefty, expensive appliances, with prices ranging from a minimum of $400 to over $3000. It's no wonder that 17% of user opinions on stoves concern the product's overall value. An analysis of these opinions lead to a solid conclusion: less is more.
The large majority of the models rated highest for value are simple, free-standing stoves with standard, 4-burner cook-tops. None of them have convection ovens, which add around $400 to the stove's total price. Not surprisingly, these models are also budget-friendly, costing about $550 on average.
So if you want the most bang for your buck - go for the cheap, classic designs, which are reportedly far more durable than most high-end models.
