Introducing The Whirlpool® Front-Control Range
This blog is courtesy of our friends at Whirlpool.
Whirlpool is known for designing stylish appliances that simplify your life and their brand new range is no exception.
Ordinarily consumers have two choices when shopping for a new range. A Freestanding Range has rear controls and fits into a standard 30’’ wide cutout without any renovation or alterations. A Traditional Slide-in Range has a refined look with front controls, is shallower in depth and requires some countertop alterations or filler strips to give it a built-in look. These models are generally more expensive than freestanding ranges.
The NEW Whirlpool® Front-Control Range is a hybrid of both models giving you the look you want while fitting seamlessly in your existing cutout. It has a professional look, superior features and is easy to install in any kitchen. The full-depth design means no alterations are required. The majority of Canadian homes have a 30’’ cutout for their range, so it’s simple to transform your existing space into something exceptional using this new innovation from Whirlpool®.
Choosing Your Range
Whirlpool’s Front Control Ranges are available in electric or gas depending on your preference or existing set up.

Consumers then have the option of Fan Convection or upgrading to True Convection for both electric and gas models.
Fan Convection: This range has two heating elements – one is on the bottom for baking and one is in the top to broil. A fan then moves air continuously throughout the range, evenly cooking your food faster and more efficiently than a conventional oven.
Fan Convection is best for achieving fast results – for example, a lasagna dish that needs to be melted on top and cooked throughout.
True Convection: This range has a third heating element along with the fan to blow heated air throughout helping you achieve excellent results every time.
True Convection is best for achieving consistent, even baking results – for example cookies or muffins.
This range is sleek and modern with premium weighted knobs and digital oven controls for ease-of-use. The Front-Control Range has knobs at the front so you can easily control and adjust the temperature for perfect results every time.
This range is available in White, Black, and Ice Collection colours to match your current kitchen appliance finishes.
