Katriane Rousseau Electric Range February 07, 2019 09:17:06
The reason the GE JB750SJSS was chosen by us as our Best Reviewed pick is because it`s a good performing range that is also very affordable. However, if you`re looking for an upgrade, and have a bigger budget, we found a few very well-reviewed higher-end models also have upgraded features. However, keep in mind that prices on ranges will vary quite a bit -- retailers often offer significant markdowns when they put the appliances on sale, so, if you have your eye on one, it may pay to keep an eye on the price. We use the price that the range was at when we reviewed it, that price may not be the one you see. The top pick at Consumer Reports in the single-oven electric range category is the Kenmore Elite 95052 (Est. $900), which earns Excellent scores for both low and high cooktop temperatures, baking, and self-cleaning; Very Good for broiling and oven capacity. But what keeps the Kenmore 95052 out of our top spot is that user feedback is neither as robust, nor as positive. We spotted fewer than 125 reviews across all three of this range`s color options and, while they aren`t terrible, they`re not quite up to the high ratings that the GE JB750SJSS gets.
Still, most say they love the look of this white, smoothtop range, which doesn`t show smudges at much as black cooktops do, and that it`s a top performer in all tasks. A few of the lower ratings we saw are from those who are displeased that it comes with a warming drawer instead of a storage drawer, but even more say they love being able to keep their food warm while they finish prepping the rest of the meal or while waiting for family members to show up. A few also complain that the smoothtop is tough to keep clean, but that`s a common complaint with this type of electric range.
