Dual-fuel ranges use gas for the rangetop and electricity for the oven.
Why you'd want this: The benefits of having a gas rangetop are discussed in the gas range slide, but to summarize: gas burners offer a great deal of control over the temperature. But if you frequently bake, you might prefer the radiant heat electric ovens produce. This type of heat can keep a more consistent temperature in the oven, and also provides a dry atmosphere, as opposed to gas ovens, which produces a more humid heat.
