How is range depth measured?
The standard width of a residential range is 30 inches, but higher-end ranges can extend to 36 inches and beyond. The oven compartment on a typical range is 5 cubic feet, compared to just over 3 cubic feet in a typical wall oven.
about 1 1/2 inches
A countertop overhang provides a lip that extends beyond the front of your cabinets. The purpose of a standard overhang (usually about 1 1/2 inches) is to prevent liquid spills from dribbling down the face of your cabinets and to keep crumbs from finding their way into the drawers and cupboards below.
Slide-in ranges are installed so that, with the oven door open, the front side edges of the range are flush with the cabinetry and do not stick out. Once the oven door is closed, the door and handle should only extend between 1 and 2 inches from the cabinetry.
around 25-27″ deep
Most standard stoves—or ranges—are 30″ wide and around 25-27″ deep, excluding handles and knobs. Stoves are usually 36″ tall excluding control panels—the same height as most kitchen counters.
There are several different common stove dimensions. A stove, commonly marketed as a range, includes a cooktop and oven and is sized to fit the average kitchen’s counter height and depth. Typically, the cutout or opening needs to be 2 inches wider and 1 or 2 inches deeper than the stove.
Range Sizes & Styles There really isn’t a standard range size, but most styles are 30 inches wide. Space-saving ranges can be as little as 20 inches wide. Upscale or professional-style ranges can be 36 inches to 60 inches wide.
Counter Depth Range Unlike most ranges on the market, Whirlpool® counter depth ranges are all made to fit seamlessly into your kitchen. Designed to fit within 2″ of a standard 25″ depth countertop, you can be sure they will stand out in the kitchen, without sticking out.
The standard depth of a freestanding range is 25 inches (or 63.5 centimeters). The standard size of a slide-in range is 24 inches (or 61 centimeters). This is based on the standard counter depth of 24 inches. The standard range is designed to fit snugly with the standard kitchen counter design.
Typically you’ll find the depth between 24–25 inches, but variations occur. Counter-depth appliances are designed to sit flush with the standard depth of kitchen cabinetry.
What does cutout depth mean? The cutout depth refers to the dimensions of the appliance as it would fit within the cabinets. Cutout depth can be used to refer to the total dimensions of the unit. This is the height, width, and depth. Essentially, it’s the space that is ‘cutout’ of the cabinets to install an appliance.
The ideal depth of your hood should completely cover the all of the burners, with complete coverage of all back burners and at least half of all front burners. The depth should be approximately 2′-3″ less than the depth of your cooking surface to ensure that you will not bump your head while cooking.
But, we guarantee you, measuring your range hood is pretty simple. To get the height, measure from the bottom of the appliance to where the chimney flute starts – not to the top of it. To get the width and depth, measure from the left edge to the right and the front to the back at the widest parts.
