Good Housekeeping considers GE JGB800SEPSS the top budget gas stove. The burners quickly heat up and boil water, and they keep the water at an even simmer as well. The stove features a griddle burner and griddle, a warming drawer, a child lock and a self-cleaning cycle. However, the oven does not operate by convection.

The best splurge gas stove is the Kenmore Elite 78923. It features a double oven, a self-clean cycle, several settings and a convection oven. The gas stovetop heats quickly and evenly. The two ovens allow a person to cook two dishes simultaneously at different temperatures, although the lower oven can be difficult to access. The top oven is convenient for popping in frozen pizzas or cooking fries. The oven has programmable settings and pre-settings for cakes, bread and slow cooking. This stove is considered one of the best for baking cakes. However, the oven is not good at broiling food and it tends to heat unevenly.
