Picking from the best slide-in ranges is no easy decision as these appliances will be one of the most used items in your home. Whether you’re after one of the best slide-in electric ranges or a gas version instead, here’s what you need to know before you buy one.
First of all, you’ll need to take your pick from the best slide-in gas ranges and electric models. They both have their pros and cons. Slide-in electric ranges take a bit longer to heat up and they’re also slower at adjusting their heat. The good news is that the electric cooktops on these types of slide-in ranges are a breeze to clean. Gas alternatives adjust quickly and heat up faster, but the tops can be a pain to keep clean.
Another factor that’ll determine the best slide-in range for you is the capacity. We’ve included models that scale from 4.8 to 6.4 cubic feet, and if your household isn’t very big, you could save by opting for a smaller model.
When it comes to features, the best slide-in ranges have a lot to offer. Some of these appliances include handy warming drawers for when you’re not quite ready to serve. There are also additional storage racks and additional burners on top which really helps when you’re catering for the whole family.

1. Samsung NE58F9710WS: Best overall slide-in range
The Samsung NE58F9710WS oven is one of the best slide-in ranges we reviewed. Its clever features allow you to split the oven into two parts, allowing you to cook different things at different temperatures.
Another standout feature on the Samsung NE58F9710WS slide-in range is the in-built probe which makes it easier to monitor meats so you don't have to constantly open the oven door. The racks are designed to glide smoothly in and out so you can add seasoning or baste with little effort.
The Samsung NE58F9710WS slide-in range offers 5.8 cubic feet of oven capacity which is plenty for most families, however, if you regularly cook for a crowd the oven may be too small. The cooktop on this Samsung slide-in range is fitted with a ceramic stovetop which heats up fast and has expandable rings.

2. LG LSE4611ST: Best electric slide-in range
The LG LSE4611ST electric slide-in range is brimming with fantastic features. Its oven capacity is 6.3 cubic feet, making it the second biggest in our round up. In terms of features, you can expect ProBake, EasyClean, and electric elements on the cooktop that heat up fast.
The oven racks can be configured in seven positions and the oven’s interior is a bold blue color - the only one in our round up to have this finish. A storage drawer is positioned underneath the main oven area, however, there isn’t a warming drawer.
On the LG slide-in range’s cooktop, there are four main burners, a warming area, and one of the burners is expanding too. However, because the stovetop is electric, the heat is harder to adjust quickly than when you’re using a gas slide-in range.

3. Whirlpool WEE745H0FS: Best large 30-inch slide-in range
The Whirlpool WEE745H0FS has a large 6.4 cubic feet capacity - the biggest out of all the slide-in ranges that we reviewed. Unlike the Samsung NE58F9710WS, however, this oven can’t operate at two different temperatures.
What is great about the Whirlpool WEE745H0FS though is its Frozen Bake feature, convection cooking, and handy storage drawer. This slide-in range has a large glass door window so you can check on the progress of your baking without letting heat out of the oven.
The stovetop is electric and easy to wipe clean. It has two expandable elements that heat up quickly to make cooking easier. The ceramic top will need to be cleaned with specialist products though, and it is prone to scratching.

4. Samsung NX58K9500WG: Best gas slide-in range
The Samsung NX58K9500WG gas slide-in range has a great griddle area and a warming drawer.
The Samsung NX58K9500WG is a 30-inch gas slide-in range. Inside its oven, you’ll find 5.8 cubic feet of cooking space and below it is a handy warming drawer where you can store a dish until the rest of your meal is ready to serve up.
As this is a gas slide-in range, its temperature is quick to adjust and you can moderate the heat on the burners easily compared to an electric stovetop.
The oven itself is fitted with three racks which can be configured in seven different positions. Other handy features on the Samsung NX58K9500WG include self-cleaning, its stovetop griddle, and a delay timer.

5. Whirlpool WEC310S0FB: Best value slide-in range
The Whirlpool WEC310S0FB slide-in range has an electric oven and coil burners on its stovetop. There are only four burners, whereas most slide-in ranges offer five, however, this range is good value for money due to its other features.
Benefitting from a Keep Warm setting, self-cleaning, and Frozen-Bake mode, the Whirlpool WEC310S0FB has a capacity of 4.8 cubic feet, which makes it ideal for a single person or couple, but not so great for a family.
Even though the Whirlpool WEC310S0FB is a cheaper slide-in range, it does lack some important aspects including convection cooking and the coil burners won’t be to everyone’s preference.
