An appliance featuring both an oven and a cooktop is called a range. The cooking equipment known as a wall oven can be installed into your wall and set apart from your stovetop. The enclosed cavity known as an oven is where food is cooked by heating the air inside. An appliance that includes an oven and a stovetop is called a stove or range. When it comes to cooking, you sear, boil, and stir-fry on the burner or in the oven while you roast, broil, and bake elsewhere. Electric, gas, dual fuel (which combines a gas cooktop with an electric oven), and induction are the four most common types of ranges.
