The best slide-in ranges can be quickly and easily installed into your home, and with both gas slide-in ranges and electric slide-in ranges available, you’ll be able to find the right range for you and your home with our guide. We’ve found the top slide-in ranges from LG, Samsung, and Whirlpool, with a standard measurement of 30 inches to fit into your kitchen with ease.

Unlike standalone electric cooktop ranges and gas ranges, a slide-in range has no features on either side of its unit, making it easy to slot in among your kitchen counters. Slide-in ranges are also designed to prevent any food from sliding down the back or side, making them easier to clean and allowing them to sit flat against your wall. We’ve included cheap slide-in ranges for under $1000 in our guide, but there are also some more expensive options with self-cleaning modes. Some even include warming drawers, which will allow you to warm dishes before serving food, or keep your meals warm while you wait for other components to be ready. 

When buying a slide-in range, there’s a lot to consider. First, you should consider if it’s a gas or electric cooktop you want. Even the best gas cooktop will be harder to clean than an electric alternative because these flat cooktops can simply be wiped clean. However, gas slide-in cooktops do offer quick and easy adjustments to your cooking temperature, because they respond far more quickly than electric models. 

You should also consider the capacity of a slide-in range when buying. Although this won’t be a concern for small families and single-person households, a larger capacity will make catering for holiday festivities such as Thanksgiving and Christmas more manageable - especially if you’ve not got one of the best turkey fryers to hand. 


1. Samsung NE58F9710WS: Best overall slide-in range

Samsung NE58F9710WS

The Samsung NE58F9710WS slide-in range can be operated as a double oven and has fantastic features.

 Can operate as a double oven 
 Steam and self-cleaning  
 Pricey  

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

LG LSE4611ST

The LG LSE4611ST electric slide-in range has fantastic features and a large capacity.

 Safety lock 
 Power burner 
 No warming drawer 

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

Whirlpool WEE745H0FS

The Whirlpool WEE745H0FS 30-inch slide-in range’s standout feature is its huge 6.4 cubic feet capacity.

 Huge capacity 
 Seven rack positions 
 No warming drawer 
 No temperature probe 

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

Samsung NX58K9500WG

The Samsung NX58K9500WG gas slide-in range has a great griddle area and a warming drawer.

 Has a griddle 
 Convection cooking 
 Grates are hard to clean
 No smart features   

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

Whirlpool WEC310S0FB

The Whirlpool WEC310S0FB is a good value slide-in range but it lacks a fifth burner.

 Good value 
 Keep Warm setting  
 Only four burners 
 Smaller capacity  

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.
