Manufacturers are churning out ovens that cost as much as healthy down payments. These eight ranges might drain our funds, but they're worth adding to our kitchen upgrade wish list.
This $2,600 Kenmore electric range has a double oven and smooth cooktop. There aren't any burner knobs, which makes for tricky controls but a streamlined appearance.
The KitchenAid KFDD500ESS is another double oven with lots of versatility and appeal. This $2,600 range also has a gas cooktop.
The KitchenAid KSGB900ESS 30-inch 5-Burner Gas Convection Slide-In Range with Baking Drawer has a full name that matches all the robust features that come with this range. For $2,649, you get add-ons such as a baking drawer and a steam bake insert.
The KitchenAid KSEG950ESS includes a downdraft ventilation system, which sucks smoke and steam from the cooktop and removes it to the outdoors. Just be sure you get an expert to hook up the vent system on this $3,149 range.
The Samsung Chef Collection Induction Range boasts loads of versatility, including a Flex Duo insert that creates a double oven and an induction cooktop with a "virtual flame."
The GE PHS920SFSS range has an induction cooktop and convection oven. There are no burners on this range, similar to the Kenmore 97723.
This all-stainless-steel Dacor model has a gas cooktop, electric oven and control panel that tilts upward with the touch of a button. All this for a not-so-cool $6,230.
The Dacor Renaissance RNRP36GS is a 36-inch-wide stainless steel giant of a gas range. It's easy to use and nice to look at -- as long as you have the room in your kitchen.
