Maiolaine Bourgeois Electric Range February 02, 2019 09:11:32
The cousin of the budget electric model, the Whirlpool WFG515S0ES is one you should keep your eye on if you’re thinking of buying a new gas range but don’t want to shell out tons of money. We’ve seen it on sale for under $500. A low price isn’t enough of a reason to buy an appliance, however. The four-burner top has some versatility, with the 5,000 BTU burner being best for simmering and the 15,000 BTU burners being better suited to heating quickly and searing. Inside the 5.0-cubic-foot cavity, you won’t find a convection fan, but it does have a self-clean feature — something that’s not always offered at this price range.
While it lacks some of the higher-end features of other electric ranges on the list — no convection feature here — the Whirlpool WFE515S0ED is still a great deal. The four-burner range has one that pulls 3,000 watts of power, slightly less than the LG model. With 5.0 cubic feet of capacity, the oven is pretty standard, with an upper broiler element and a hidden lower baking element. The lack of a fan means cooking will be a little slower and potentially less than convection models. Though it may not have extras like a built-in temperature probe, this Whirlpool still delivers when it comes to cooking. We also like that it offers options beyond black, white, and silver when it comes to aesthetics.
