Thor Kitchen 36” HRD3606U – Professional And Cost-Effective

Thor Kitchen 36 inch Dual Fuel Range HRD3606U

Thor Kitchen 36” HRD3606U is a freestanding stove. 36 x 27.5 x 39 inches big, powered by natural or liquid gas (if you decide to buy it, you can order the gas you want, if you want). This stove features six burners on top of it and a 5.2 cu.ft oven and requires 240V socket to function.

Three burners have 18 000 BTU (British thermal unit) power, 2 have 15 000 BTU, and one features 12 000 BTU. On top of the burners lay cast iron cooking grates, which are both durable and relatively easy to maintain.

The entire gas range is designed in a simple, classical fashion. The interface is easy to use and read. Going from right to left, you first have the on/off switch for convection fan. Then, you have seven control knobs, the middle one dedicated for controlling oven heat level.

Above the control knobs is the indicator light, which signals whether the oven is functioning or not. Also, on the left side, you have the on/off switch for halogen light, positioned in the oven. Thor Kitchen 36” HRD3606U Gas oven features two halogen lights, so you’ll be able to tell whether the food is ready or not.

The drip pan at the bottom is made of black porcelain and makes maintenance and cleaning a lot easier. Thanks to the convection fan, you can circulate the hot air and spread it evenly across the oven. On the other hand, if you wish to bake the food from one direction, leave the fan off.

Note that, if you want to use LPG, you will need a conversion kit to run it.

Verdict

When you want a stove that will stand up to heavy use, then the Thor 36-inch gas range may be just what you want. We like that you can cook so much at once with the six burners. This oven is a durable product that lasts.
Pros
  • Excellent burning range
  • Two gas option
  • Durable, made of stainless steel
  • Cost-effective
Cons
  • Burner igniter might continue clicking with the flame turned on
  • Requires LPG conversion kit

Thor Kitchen 36 inch Gas Range HRG3618U

Thor Kitchen Professional 36” HRG3618U is 36 x 27.5 x 39 inches big gas range and has similar features to our previous product. You have the option to run in on natural and liquefied gas. The stove features six burners, and 5.2 cu ft baking oven.

It has two halogen lamps, convection fan to make baking more efficient and rounder. However, this oven has three 12 000 BTU burners, 2 15 000 BTU burners and one 18 000 BTU burner. It also features advanced 16 500 BTU boiler, which, with the help of radiations, helps preserve the food’s moisture and juiciness. The burners feature auto reignition technology, in case the flame extinguishes.

The stove features 22000BTU U shaped burner, and the entire interior is made of blue porcelain. This not only helps transfer speed more efficiently but also makes the cleaning and maintenance a lot more comfortable. The oven racks are nickel plated, which helps prevent corrosion and prolongs durability.

I love the blue oven interior; it looks, calming, modern and stylish. Plus, it makes it easier to spot and clean stains. Note that this stove arrives unassembled (like most stoves you order from Amazon). You can follow the instruction manual to assemble it, and if you run into problems, call the support; they are friendly and will guide you through the process.

The drip pan on the top is made of black porcelain, and the cooking grates are made of heavy cast iron and will serve you for a very long time. The control panel features seven controlling knobs, the middle one intended for oven temperature control. Also, just like the previous stove, it has two on/off switches, one for the fan (on the right) and one for the light (on the left).

Verdict

This range is a great option for large families and heavy entertainers because it gives you so many options. We like that it has a spectacular broiler option so that we can experiment with new foods.
Pros
  • Very durable, made of stainless steel
  • Inexpensive
  • Easy to use control panel
  • Excellent versatility and burning range
  • Stylish and easy to maintain blue porcelain stove

When it comes to similarities, this oven is 27.5 x 36 x 39.8 inches in dimensions (almost identical size), and it also has 5.2 cu ft oven capacity, paired with 22,000 BTU oven convection.

Also, this oven features 18 BTU IR (infrared) boiler; only this one is placed in the center, where you can sear the food. However, unlike the previous ovens, this one has four boilers on the top, two 15 000 BUT and two 12 000 BUT (lacks 18 000 BTU boiler).

The design is classic, stainless steel, and grey, with the touche of modernity. The oven is made of blue porcelain, which makes the stove more attractive. We have to commend the central griddle (made of stainless steel, isn’t cast iron) which will prove useful when preparing various meals.

Also, the control panel is easy to read and navigate, similar to all Thor Kitchen ovens. It features only several components, which is always favorable (makes the oven easier to clean and maintain, or repair in even of damage).

But, despite the fact that the middle griddle is very useful, it may be hard to clean, depending on how often you use it. But, the blue porcelain oven is easy to clean.

Verdict

The stove, in general, is very efficiently, consistent and highly durable, perfect for those who don’t need six burners.
Pros
  • Classic and simple design
  • Simple and easy to use control panel
  • Middle griddle may prove to be very useful
  • Extremely cost-effective and durable
Cons
  • The middle skillet may be difficult to clean

The oven features U shaped, 22 000 BTU burner, and is 5.2 cu ft big. Interior is made of neat blue porcelain, which makes cooking more efficient and cleaning more comfortable. This model also has a convection fan, which you can turn on if you want a more rounder cooking from all sides. Oven racks are nickel plated, rust-resistant and durable.

Oven area also has two halogen lights which illuminate the cavity. This is modern, thermostatically controlled oven. Even though the gas ovens are never as precise and consistent as the electric ones, the Thor Kitchen 36″ Pro-style oven is pretty accurate and consistent.

This product comes with the LPG conversion kit, which allows you to transfer to using liquefied gas instead of natural.

It is a beautiful, contemporary stove, fit for most modern kitchens. The only thing we don’t like regarding this gas range is the annoying clicking sound it produces when you try to ignite the burner, but the gas is on low reserves.

Verdict

Other than that, we can only commend it: the build, the expensive look, and affordable price.
Pros
  • Affordable, value for money
  • Looks amazing, blue porcelain oven
  • Easy to clean and maintain
  • Versatile, excellent burning range
Cons
  • The clicking sound is annoying if the gas reserves are on low

Verona Pro-Style Dual-Fuel Range – Best Dual Oven Model

Verona VEFSGE365NDSS 36 inch Dual RangeVerona VEFSGE365NDSS 36″ is made in Italy, and functions as a multifunctional stove, covered with easy to clean porcelain. This gas range is made of 304 stainless steel, which makes it very durable and resistant to oxidation. Note that the product arrives with LP conversion kit.

The product features two ovens:

  1. The main oven capacity is 2.4 cu ft big, 18 inches wide, 17 deep and 14 inches high.
  2. Secondary oven capacity is 1.5 cu ft, and it is 11 x 17 x 14 inches in dimension.

Top features five burners, 2 of 12 000 BTU, 2 have 15 000 BTU and the central one with 16 000 BTU.

Note that only burners use gas; the two ovens are electric.

It also has a storage drawer at the bottom, where you can store maintenance tools and appliances. This gas range is also reasonably advanced (compared to others on the list) since it does feature a timer and digital clock, which can help you prepare food more efficiently.

The gas range stands atop of the four robust metal racks, and it also features an anti-fire device. It is a modern, gray looking gas range with a lot of potentials.

But, like any other device, it has its downsides. The main thing we want to complain about is the control knobs. They are somewhat inaccurate, marked at every 40 degrees. This makes it very difficult to attune, especially if you have to be dead accurate while cooking some meal. But other than that, we have no significant complaints.

Verdict

If you love European range models, then this may be the stove you want. The best part about this stove is that it has two ovens allowing you to cook many foods at the same time. This oven does not have a self-cleaning mode either.
Pros
  • Combination of gas and electricity
  • Consistent top burners burn evenly and consistently
  • Features two dedicated ovens
  • Will fit contemporary homes, stylish
  • Helpful digital timer
Cons
  • Controlling knobs may be difficult to tune

The knobs are ergonomically designed, and won’t heat up even if you use the oven at the same time. You also have the built-in digital timer, which you can set up to control your cooking. We suggest you try broiling since the top broiling burner delivers juicy and crispy results.

Oven interior features stable ventilation system, which will help you disperse the heat and odors.

You can use liquefied gas, but the conversion kit isn’t included in the price (though you can add and pay for it additionally).

This gas range is very modern looking and looks as if it will blend in any environment, which is always a plus.

The only problem we noticed with this gas range is that the oven doesn’t distribute the heat evenly. However, keep in mind that this is the second least expensive stove on the list, so don’t expect it to be the most sophisticated one.

Verdict

But aside from this minor technical issues, we can’t complain too much about it. It looks smooth and operates smoothly, and is quite durable despite the low cost.

  • Stylish will fit in virtually any kitchen

Grates are made of cast iron, also porcelainized for easier maintenance. Much like the previous Verona product, this one also has the built-in flame failure security system.

Top grates are cast iron, easy to maintain and excellent for pertaining heat. Controlling knobs are made of metal but are covered in high-quality plastic, and resits heat surprisingly well. And, it is also worth noting that the stove features two lights, and two adjusting racks, both nickel-plated, allowing more easy adjustment.

The burner features 16 500 BTU capacity and is recommended for preparing juicy and moist food since the burner uses IR technology to broil the food.

Verdict

Finding any downsides concerning this gas range is hard. I guess my only downside is limited options with the top burners.
Pros
  • Sturdy, value for money
  • Excellent oven capacity
  • Very accurate, built-in temperature control
  • Perfect stove for broiling
Cons
  • Top burners are somewhat limiting

Best 36-inch Gas Range – Buyer’s Guide

When you choose a range, you may want to look at all the features before you make a final decision on which one to purchase to ensure that it meets all your needs.

Quality and durability of the materials are often high on the list when it comes to deciding factors. Size is a huge consideration for some people.

Whether you want an import or made in the US stove, buyers often agree that functionality is one of the biggest considerations before they purchase a new gas range. You may not want to buy a dual gas oven model when you need to cook large meals like whole turkeys and chickens.

Size

The internal size of the oven makes a huge difference when purchasing for a family. If you entertain a lot throughout the year, then the size of the oven is vital to making the dishes you want to serve your guests.

Some people are happy with the European models that have two ovens like the Verona with five burners. You can make several dishes at once and cook on two separate temperatures at the same time. The main decision depends on the dishes you like to prepare.

If you are happy serving smaller recipes to an intimate group of friends, then the European model may fit into your lifestyle the best, but if you are a Southern cook that has to have the biggest ham or turkey at holiday meals, then you may want to go with one of the Thor Gas Ranges with more than five cubic feet of cooking space.

Weight

Do you live in an apartment or structure that needs a light range or stove? Our list covers a wide range of models from around 200 pounds all the way beyond 400 pounds. If weight is no issue, and you have the help to slide the stove in place, then you can choose practically any model on our Top Ten List. If you have a tight fit, you may want to measure where the gas lines run to make sure that the stove will go into place the way you expect it to fit.

Number of burners

What kind of cooking do you do the most? Are you a person that barbecues or grills food a lot? Do you prefer to boil or bake more meals than most? How you cook should steer your decision about whether to get a four, five, or six burner stove. The four-burner models often have griddles in the middle so that you can sear meat or grill up some burgers.

You can saute, roast, and make pancakes on the center cooktop. If you cook a lot of pasta and soups, then maybe the six burner is a more fitting option for your household.

Functionality

How do you plan to use your stove? Are you going to cook for small or large groups most of the time? Do you need to cook for large groups regularly? Do you want something that is easy to clean or looks nice in your kitchen? All of these functions are important if you want to be happy with your purchase. For a bold look in your room, you may want to go with the Red SMEG range we list last.

Electric or gas igniters

The only thing to consider between gas and electric igniters is whether you want to have the ability to light the stove when the power is out. If so, then you want to go with a gas ignitor. Most of the models on the list have automatic re-ignition if the pilot light goes out, but some do not.

Construction material

How durable do you need your stove to be for your family? Are you an avid chef that is constantly trying out new dishes? A stainless steel model might be just what you want for easy cleanup and a stylish fit. The Italian models have charming details that add character to the range. It just depends on what you want to look at and clean when you are in the kitchen.

Extra features

If you are the cook that loves to roast a nice hunk of meat, then you may like the range with the rotisserie where you can cook whole chickens if you want. Five oven rack slots versus four can make a huge difference when you are a baker. Easy to clean ovens and removable doors are other options that give you the opportunity to cook and clean the way you want.

The Final Word on Best 36-inch Gas Ranges

We think all of the ranges on our Top Ten List have features and capabilities that will intrigue the amateur and professional chef alike. We study various models to provide you with a broad range of products that have features that will fit into your lifestyle and give you the options you need to make a solid purchase.

Figuring out whether you want a flashy model or a more functional item is one of the first considerations you should make before you begin to look at the available ranges. You want to make sure that you choose a stove that will last under heavy use if you cook several times a day. Your choice is an investment in your home and your family life. You are likely to use your stove for many years, so you want to be sure to choose wisely.

Function is the key to making the best choice for your kitchen. You may find that baking bread for your bakery delivery service is much easier in a European model, where the aspiring chef can get much more use out of one of the pro models on our list. For instance, the Kucht range has several burner options that cook at different heat levels. The oven has five rack positions giving bakers plenty of space to make desserts and cookies.

Deciding how you will use your stove is one of the best ways to guide your decision. For instance, if you like to cook steak, then our top broiler pick may be just what you need to sear steaks and melt butter and garlic on breadsticks. The time you spend using your oven and the way you cook should be the primary considerations for your range along with size. Another tip is to check where the gas hookup is to make sure it fits correctly in your kitchen.
