The size of an electric range is dependent on the space in which the range sits in the kitchen. As of 2015, range widths vary between 20 and 40 inches. In smaller kitchens, having enough storage space generally requires a smaller range.
Electric ranges vary in price between $200 and $1,000 as of 2015, and they also vary in terms of cooking surface (smooth top or coil) and heat source (radiant or halogen heat). Less expensive ranges are generally smaller and use coils with radiant heat. Halogen heating elements and smooth top cooking surfaces often provide more even cooking, which may also be a consideration in addition to size.
