Fans of gas ranges may be disappointed to hear that the best Consumer Reports has tested don’t do as well in our tests as the top electric ranges. Typically the high-powered gas burners aren’t as fast and broiling isn’t as good. But for some of us, gas is the only way to go.

In “5 Great Reasons to Buy a Gas Range” we pointed out the advantages of a gas range, if you have the choice. Now it’s time to talk money. Among single-oven gas ranges the top-rated Samsung NX58F5700WS scored 79 out of 100 and is $1,600. The impressive and stylish GE PGS920SEFSS is a slide-in so the controls are up front, the back panel is gone, and it’s yours for $2,550. 

But if your budget is $1,000 or less—and most budgets are—then take a look at these gas ranges. And check online for manufacturer rebates and watch for sales. 

A Word About Gas Range Reliability

Whirlpool, KitchenAid, and Maytag are among the more repair prone gas ranges, and less reliable than LG, Frigidaire, Kenmore, and GE/GE Mongram. How do we know? We asked over 6,100 subscribers who bought a gas range between 2010 and 2015 about their experiences. Our brand reliability data shows you all the details.
