unless you want the answer 'buy a gas one' you should ask a more specific question. Give us some details. Help us, help you.


If I could only remember to THINK about what I was doing before I did it.

You have two choices, natural gas or propane, depending on if your house is served by natural gas or not. The stoves use different types of manifolds to accommodate the different properties of the two types of gas and service.

Buy a natural gas range if your house has natural gas service. If there is natural gas in your neighborhood but your house is not (as far as you know) piped for it, call your gas utility and inquire about connecting your house to the gas main. You would then need to hire a plumber to run the interior gas line to the location for your stove.

If you don't live in an area with natural gas service you can get a propane tank that sits outside your house and a propane stove. You would need to have the tank professionally installed and piping run to the range location.

Oh, then go out and buy a gas stove
