You may think most gas ranges do a decent job of heating and baking. But in Consumer Reports’ tests, some models struggle just to hold a steady simmer or brown a sheet of cookies. In fact, there’s a staggering 48-point difference in the Overall Score of the best and worst gas ranges in our tests.

Below, we highlight the very best single- and double-oven gas ranges we test. Each year, CR’s expert testers bake hundreds of cakes and cookies, and take thousands of precise temperature measurements to see how well every range that passes through our lab heats, bakes, and broils.

"For gas ranges, we see some of the biggest differences in baking and broiling results," says Tara Casaregola, CR's test engineer in charge of ranges.

But we don’t stop at performance tests. We also survey members on whether their gas ranges have experienced a break or a problem to calculate the predicted reliability for different range brands.

As a classically trained chef and an enthusiastic DIYer, I've always valued having the best tool for a job—whether the task at hand is dicing onions for mirepoix or hanging drywall. When I'm not writing about home products, I can be found putting them to the test, often with help from my two young children, in the 1860s townhouse I'm restoring in my free time.
