Additionally, what is the difference between a range and a cooktop? Well, in simple terms, a cooktop ditches the oven portion of a range and takes up only counter space. This means that the burner's knobs and buttons are on top of the counter, rather than on the front. Of course, if an oven is needed, that means opting for a wall-mounted oven in addition to the cooktop.

Why is a stove called a range?
“Range” meaning “stove” is actually one of the older senses of the word, first appearing in the early 15th century. Early ranges were so-called because they usually had more than one oven and usually at least two cooking spots on top, furnishing a “range” of places to cook.
