You don't have to be a master in the kitchen to appreciate the appeal of a gas stove. Not only do they allow you to have precise control over the flame, but they also quickly heat up and cool down. In comparison to electric options, gas ranges heat your dishes more evenly, which is a win for cooks of all skill levels. Plus, they're emergency-friendly; if the power goes out, with the help of a match, you'll still be able to cook on the stove.
These appliances can be pricey, though. And you may have to make an investment even before bringing one home. If your kitchen isn't already equipped with a gas line, you'll have to get one installed first. We think the price is usually worth it, however, so we compiled eight of the best gas stoves on the market. As an added bonus, all of them are under $5,000.

This appliance has a large, continuous cooking surface that's super convenient for moving pots from burner to burner. Our favorite feature might be the double oven below the range, though.
