If you have a small home, you probably have a small kitchen. But that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice dinner-making capabilities or style with a small stove. Whether you've taken to the road in an RV or are living with limited square footage in a tiny home, the right appliance will ensure you have quality meals no matter the size of your food prep area.

Read on for seven small but mighty stoves to fit your tiny kitchen and big cooking ambitions. They're proof that good things do come in small packages.

1. Avanti 20-inch Deluxe Gas Range Elite Series, $1049.96

Small in stature, but big on features, this Avanti gas stove features professional-grade cast iron grates over four burners, bake and broil oven capabilities, and a soft-close storage drawer. Best yet, it's sleek and stylish.

2. Camp Chef Propane Camp Oven and Stove, $234.99

Campside scrambled eggs, anyone? If you're in the market for an oven and stove that you can take on trips to the great outdoors, consider this Camp Chef propane option that has two burners and a surprisingly spacious baking compartment. It's compact (just 32 pounds!) and easy to transport, making it a convenient choice for any camping adventure.

3. BlueStar 24-inch Culinary Series Sealed Burner Range, starting at $3,395

Don't underestimate the power of a small stove. This BlueStar range boasts professional chef features like four open burners with up to 21,000 BTUs, a commercial-grade infrared broiler, and a convection oven that fits half-size sheet pans. It's available for both natural gas or propane fuel sources.

4. Summit Appliance 2.46 cu. ft. Slide-In Gas Range, $1,003.75

Ideal for apartments or galley kitchens, this Summit Appliance gas range has everything you need without the bulk. Constructed from steel and porcelain, the design features two wire racks, four sealed burners, and stainless steel doors, all designed and manufactured in the United States.

5. Danby 20-inch Gas Range with Manual Clean Oven, $699

With its slim width, this 20-inch convection range can fit in even the tiniest of tiny houses. There's nothing particularly fancy about this range, but that's the beauty of it. If you're looking for a simple, solid stove to get dinner on the table, look no further. It's compatible with both natural gas and liquid propane, and its porcelain cooktop is a breeze to clean.

6. AGA 20-inch Pistachio Electric Warming Plate Double Oven Range, $5,865

This AGA range can be paired with a traditional oven, but it includes one slow cooking space (hello, roas beef!) and one warming drawer, perfect for keeping a freshly baked pie at the right temperature until dessert. If you're tight on space and more of a takeout aficionado instead of an at-home chef, this range would be perfect.

7. GE Appliances 24-inch Self Clean Free-Standing Electric Range, $1,049

Don't let the compact size of this GE range fool you. It still boasts full 8-inch burners with 2,000 watts of cooking power — all you need for a small space, really. The ceramic glass cooktop is painless to clean, while the clear window makes it easy to keep an eye on your banana bread.
