With product shortages and supply-chain difficulties dominating the news cycle this year, it wasn’t clear if we’d see extensive Black Friday deals on ranges. But since early November, we’ve found quite a few great deals on electric, induction, and gas models, and the deals have only gotten better now that Black Friday has arrived.

We combed through Black Friday ads from all the major range retailers—including A.J. Madison, Appliances Connection, Best Buy, Home Depot, and Lowe’s—to find the best prices right now on models that do well in CR’s extensive range tests. All five retailers mentioned above are discounting dozens of ranges. Below are the best of those Black Friday deals.

Electric Ranges

This double-oven electric smoothtop range from GE is a stellar deal—even when it’s full price. It offers two ovens, both with convection, two high-power burners, and a cooktop warming element. It’s also a good performer in our tests. One thing you’ll give up is self-cleaning, so be ready to use a little elbow grease (eventually) to get the cavity clean.

This single-oven electric range from LG is the rare model that’s on sale despite its everyday price of around $800. A vast majority of deals we’ve found are on ranges costing $1,000 or more. On top of that, it offers strong performance, not to mention a surprising number of features, including stainless steel trim, two high-power burners, and even WiFi connectivity to change the oven temperature or check on the burners using your phone. You don’t get convection for this price or a full-power self-clean cycle, but it’s still a stellar deal.

If you need only a single oven, this electric smoothtop slide-in from Samsung delivers everywhere it counts. In addition to a strong performance in CR’s tests, this model has convection, two high-power burners, and a self-cleaning oven. It has an air-fry setting in the oven and even includes a dedicated mesh basket to use with the cycle. Many other ranges with air-fry settings require you to purchase a basket separately.

Gas Ranges

Budget-priced ranges are few and far between these days, and it’s even rarer to find one on sale that performs well in our lab tests. This single-oven gas range from GE checks both boxes and includes essential features like a storage drawer and dedicated burners for high heat and simmering. Unlike some pricier picks, it lacks convection or a self-clean cycle, so you’ll have to clean the oven manually. Take note that in order to see this price from Home Depot, you need to add the range to your cart.

This double-oven gas range from GE offers lots of bells and whistles at an incredible sale price. In addition to two ovens, both with convection, this model has five burners, continuous cooktop grates, and even a built-in griddle burner, all for about $500 less than you’d typically spend. Take note that in order to see this price from Home Depot, you need to add the range to your cart.

There’s a lot to like about this single-oven gas range from LG, especially at this price. Aside from strong performance in our tests, it also offers loads of features you rarely find in models costing this little, most notably an air-fry setting in the oven. It has a steam-clean setting for lighter messes and a full-power self-clean cycle for when the cavity gets really grimy.

Induction Ranges

If you want a pro-style look but lack gas service at your house, this LG Studio single-oven induction slide-in is a great option. Induction vastly outperforms gas in CR’s testing, and this model is no exception. It’s from LG’s more premium Studio line, and it’s decked out in features including convection, gliding oven racks on ball bearings, and an astonishing 4,000-watt high-power burner. It carries a large price, but the discount right now is decent.

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.
