BENTON HARBOR, Mich., Oct. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Jenn-Air brand has applied many of the high-end design principles and elegant touches behind its luxury built-in appliances to a new collection of 30-inch ranges offered in dual-fuel, gas, induction and radiant options. Featuring a full-depth design that easily installs seamlessly into a standard opening, these latest models offer five burners, increased oven baking capacity and a host of thoughtful details from soft-close oven doors to telescoping glide racks.
"Our engineers and designers have completely reimagined this range category and the result is elegance combined with best-in-class performance," notes Juliet Johnson, brand experience manager for Jenn-Air. "And their full depth design fits flawlessly in the standard 30-inch space that our research has shown is so prevalent in home kitchens in North America."
All of the new ranges feature convection ovens along with a .7 Cu. Ft. baking drawer that can be used for baking, roasting, proofing bread, warming plates and keeping food warm before serving. An Auto Convection Conversion quickly converts traditional cooking times and temperatures. Additional features throughout the line include soft-close doors and ramp up theatre lighting. Easily maneuverable telescoping glide racks extend out smoothly and provide easy access when removing or checking on dishes in progress.
With the exception of the gas model, combined oven and baking drawer capacity on all models is a generous 6.9 Cu. Ft. Combined capacity on the gas model is 6.5 Cu. Ft. Baking drawers found on all models offer the option of using different techniques to cook different dishes simultaneously. Powerful oven elements in the dual fuel and induction ranges include a 3,600-Watt Hidden Bake Element; a 4,000-Watt Broil Element and a 3,200 True Convection Element that distributes heated air throughout the oven cavity for temperature consistency. Ovens on the gas models feature an 18,000-BTU Hidden Bake Element and a 13,000-BTU Broil Elements.
Electric model ovens have a 3,600-Watt Bake Element, a 4,000-Watt Broil Element and a 3,200 True Convection Element. Additional oven features found throughout the collection include Keep Warm™ and Proofing options and a Sabbath Mode.
Jenn-Air® 30" Gas & Dual Fuel Ranges
Cooking surfaces on both the gas and dual fuel model ranges feature five brass burners including a powerful 19,000-BTU Dual Stacked Brass Burner that allows cooks to easily transition from a high-heat sear to a delicate simmer. Additional burners that provide added cooking versatility include a 15,000-BTU burner; a 9,200-BTU burner; an 8,000-BTU oval burner that accommodates an included aluminum die-cast griddle as well as other oblong or rectangular cookware; and a 5,000-BTU simmer burner.

A Sensor Boil option selects the optimal power level to quickly bring water to a boil while also helping to minimize the possibility of boiling over. When water boils, a beep indicates water is boiling and the power is then adjusted to lower the temperature setting. A range of heat level settings from Performance Boost for quick heating to simmer, melt and Keep Warm™ offer further control for cooking a variety of dishes.
