However, this flexibility comes with some limitations. For example, the top oven lacks a standard bake setting, Reviewed notes, meaning you need to bake with fan convection if using the top oven; true convection cooking is available in the lower oven, or the entire oven if you remove the divider. Also, while you can bake in the lower oven while broiling in the upper one, "the lower oven can`t be set below 400°F—or 325°F if you`re broiling on Low." All of that means that there`s a little bit of a learning curve in mastering how to use this double oven to maximum advantage, and Perten says that spending some time with the owner`s manual is a must. However, that learning curve doesn`t seem to hinder owner enjoyment too much. User feedback is quite good, including a 4.6 star rating at Best Buy based on over 600 reviews.
There are many varieties of electric ranges. There is the common one which is designed with a metal coil to heat up your food. There are also the flat top ones made from ceramic glass. The metal coil burners are the more durable ones and are very low maintenance. You can use any cookware for this type. The coil burners can heat up very fast, too. The glass top range is the one that requires more maintenance but looks very good in your kitchen. The smooth finish makes it look chic and elegant but this requires you to be extra careful when you are cleaning up. The glass top is prone to scratches and is less durable compared to the metal coils. Though it heats up slower, the glass top burner’s heat is more concentrated which makes cooking more efficient. Not all cookwares are compatible with the glass top too thus, one must be very careful in choosing the right ones. When not in use, these pretty glass surfaces can also become an extension or your countertops.
