Key Features of Thor Kitchen HRG3080U 30″ Freestanding Gas Range:
Rangetop Cooktop with Four Heating Elements:
Let me start with the most obvious place to start- the range-top cooktop. The Thor Kitchen HRG3080U 30″ Freestanding Gas Range is equipped with four sealed burners. The most power heating element lies on the front-left corner. It is a sealed single burner with the capability of generating up to 18,000 BTU heating power.
On the front-right corner, there is a sealed dual burner with a power of 15,000 BTU (British thermal unit, for the uninitiated). This dual burner also sports a simmer function at just 650 BTU. This Range-top cooktop is also armed with two sealed single burners on the rear-left and rear-right corners. Each of them features about 12,000 BTU of heating power at maximum.
As you might well guess from the list, the device makes no compromise when it comes to cooking power and any of these burners could cook the best of your dishes easily.
Rangetop Burner Configuration:
What makes this 30-inch Freestanding Gas Range standout from it’s alternative models is it’s ergonomically design range-top cooktop. As mentioned before, this rangetop cooktop is provided with for burners featuring sealed configuration.
The closed or sealed burners are more efficient than the open ones. A sealed burner doesn’t expose the flame into the open air. It also checks food-spilling into the flame. Apart from these, the sealed burners are easy-to-clean.
Apart from this, each of the four burners is provided with black porcelain built drip pan. These pans offer two benefits. First, they allow a greater heat conduction. And Second, they offer an affability of ease when it comes to cleaning the burners.
However, the best feature to grace this range-top cooktop is the inclusion of three cast iron cooking grates. Just imagine all those cookware you’d never have to lift from burner to burner but you could just slide it across to change burners.
As these Cast Iron grates can form a continuous layer over the range-top cooktop, this system allows easy movement of heavy pots and cookware. Now, you will face no problems when transferring cookware between burners. Neat, eh?
Single Oven with Huge Capacity:
A burner is only as good as its oven. While some burners may give stellar performances on the cooking front, they may fail to duplicate their success when it comes to baking. So does the Thor Kitchen HRG3080U 30″ Freestanding Gas Range stumble on the baking block or pass through with flying colors, read on more to find out.
The oven boasts a capacity of 4.2 cu.ft. If you are confused, in other words, that is more than enough space for your daily household baking needs. The oven is equipped with two burners: the broiler burner and the U-shape Stove burner.
Powerful Convection Oven:
The convection oven features two high-end burners with different power levels. It’s U-Shaped Stove Burner has an unbelievable 22,000 BTU of heating power generation capacity. The Oven broiler burner boasts heating power up to 13,000 BTU.
The oven interior is made of blue porcelain which enhances the oven heating and thus makes the oven energy efficient. The convection fan also ensures that all baking is done in a uniform manner and the heat distribution to the product is same.
