A range (or kitchen stove)—usually comprising of a stove-top with burners or hotplates and one or more ovens for baking—is an integral part of the modern-day kitchen. In 2015, average annual expenditure per consumer for cooking stoves and home owned ovens in the United States stood at 35.36 U.S. dollars.
The cooking range—together with the conventional oven—is an important product category within the market for home appliances. Shipments of gas ranges, ovens and surface cooking units in the United States for 2016 were projected to amount to 3.46 million units.
The most common heating methods used by ranges and ovens are through the use of electricity or natural gas. Other newer technologies include the use of electromagnetic induction as well as microwave ovens. Average spending for microwave ovens in the U.S. amounted to 8.67 U.S. dollars per consumer in 2015. In that same year, a total of over 11 million microwave ovens were shipped within the U.S.
