What are standard stove dimensions
The most “standard” range size is around 30 inches broad, 27–29 inches deep and 36 inches in height. Keep in mind these specifications do not include the back guard, handles, knobs or grate. The 2nd most “standard” stove size is 36 inches wide, so considering this if you want an additional burner or element.
Stove sizes range more in width than in depth or height, as most countertop and cabinet dimensions are set. The idea is for your range to sit largely flush with the top of your worktops and front of your cupboards, with the door barely jutting out an inch or two beyond cabinets.
What are the different sizes of stoves?
Compact, normal, and extra-wide stoves are all available. For small variants, stove widths range from 20 to 24 inches; for regular models, 30 to 36 inches; and for extra-wide models, 48 to 60 inches wide. Compact variants may make up for their lack of breadth with an increase in height, with most being 25–27 inches deep and 36–41 inches tall.
Gas, electric, freestanding, and slide-in ranges are all included in the scope of these stove dimensions. The widest models tend to be commercial-inspired, meaning means they are usually gas or slide-in types. Take a look at the differences comparing gas and electric ranges.

Width: From 30 to 60 inches wide
Depth: When the cabinet doors are closed, the depth should be 25–27 inches, but without handles or knobs.
Height: around 96 cm
How are stoves measured?
Various methods of measuring stoves exist. Specify them in your shopping list:
A back guard is not included in these measurements. Cabinets and countertops should match these specs.
Make sure you have enough clearance by measuring the space with the door closed and open.
Handles, knobs and grates are all included in these measurements.
The proportions of the cutout.. Measure your cutout and choose a range according on those measurements while you’re out shopping.
Measurements provided may be rounded to the nearest whole number. For example, a 30-inch broad range is more often than not 29-7/8 inches in width.
How to measure for a new kitchen range
You should measure your range cutout before you buy a new range if you want to guarantee a perfect fit.
Step 1: Remove your current range
You achieve the most precise readings, be sure to unplug and remove your equipment carefully. Here’s a step-by-step guide on removing and recycling appliances.
Step 2: Measure the cutout width
Measure the length of the cutout from one cabinet to the next using a measuring tape. Make careful to measure the cutout’s width as well if your counters reach beyond the cabinets. Whether you’re unsure if your cabinet measurements are correct, take a look at all sides of the cabinetry. If this isn’t the case, go for the lower size. In order to allow a 30-inch range that is really 29-7/8 inches wide, a normal cutout width is often 30 inches wide.
Step 3: Measure the cutout depth
Measuring a cabinet’s front-to-wall depth, omitting the cabinet’s door, requires a measuring tape. In order to accommodate normal depths of 25 to 27 inches, a common wall cabinet is 24 inches deep. A common result of this is that a little portion of the range will protrude beyond the cabinets. In most cases, the door has been shut.
Step 4: Measure the cutout height
Measure the distance from the floor to the top of the countertops using a measuring tape. To account for an uneven floor, take two measurements: one at the rear of the aperture and one near the front. Most ranges have adjustable legs if you discover it isn’t level. A conventional stove height is 36 inches, hence a standard cutout height is 36 inches.
Step 5: Map out the stove’s path
Determine the optimum route from your home’s front door to your preferred installation position, taking into consideration every hallway and doorway. Make sure the unit is able to fit through by measuring the distances.
