"gamme de fournaises" ou "ligne de fournaises"

Gamme is defined as "une serie de produits comparables, appartenant à une même catégorie, classes selon leur utilisation, leur prix, etc. So you may have "gamme de vêtements" or "gamme de cosmétiques", and here you have "gamme de fournaises" .

You could also use the word "ligne", which is usually used for cosmetics, but seems to have spread to other goods as well. "ligne de vêtements", "ligne de meubles", etc. Or "ligne de fournaises".

"Stéphane Gartner vous propose
une gamme de vêtements originale : Artwear
une gamme de vêtements classique : Ligne S. "

"- Nos boutiques offrent la gamme de vêtements nautiques Paul & Shark"

""Les sports mécaniques m'ont donné le gout de la
qualité et c'est cette recherche de qualité qui m'a
conduit à créer cette ligne de vêtements en
collaboration avec Griffés Sud.""

"Tropical Trading propose une ligne de meubles en teck de Birmanie"

Since "ligne" is closer to the English term, I think I would use that one.
