Harrietta Gauthier Electric Range February 07, 2019 09:18:29
There’s something amazing going on here, and it’s not just the Wi-Fi capabilities of this smart electric range. It’s the induction cooktop. Induction is simply the best around when you’re working with electric options, and that means the price on this one is hard to fight with. On top of that you receive a great 5.6 cubic foot oven underneath. It’s smooth, easy to control, and there’s even something special about it. The whole thing also syncs with your phone, allowing you to control the oven without even being in the room. All of this is put together in a super-stylish minimalistic design. The brushed stainless steel exterior makes it look exactly like what it is: the absolute pinnacle of electric range innovation.
Everyone in the office gets excited when we test ovens, because it means we bake a lot of cookies. We also cook and bake other foods to get an idea of how quickly and evenly they heat. We look at how quickly they preheat and how well they hold their temperature, and just how much that temperature varies from what the oven’s display says. When it comes to ranges, we want to know how long it takes to boil water on each of the burners. We also like to see how well the burner holds its heat by putting it on simmer for 20 minutes and tracking the liquid’s temperature. But ranges aren’t just there for cooking. Kitchens are points of pride for many people, so aesthetics matter a lot. It’s not just how pretty the appliance is, though. We let the staff use them throughout the testing phase to get feedback on how intuitive the interface is — and whether or not the oven burned their pizza.
