Samsung makes the best electric slide-in range. While the Frigidaire Professional FPEH3077RF gives you the look of a built-in, it lacks the full seamlessness of a true slide-in, which has a slightly wider stovetop that sits on top of a kitchen counter. This styling makes kitchen clean up easier because it eliminates the gap between the stovetop and counter that typically winds up being a trap for crumbs and spills. If your kitchen is designed to accommodate a slide-in electric range, the 5.8-cubic-foot Samsung NE58F9500SS (Est. $1,560) is worth a look. It costs more than a freestanding single oven range like the GE JB750SJSS, but is relatively inexpensive compared to many slide-in models. It`s the top-rated single-oven slide-in electric smoothtop range at Consumer Reports, where it earns a Recommended nod, and is an Editors` Choice selection at Reviewed, where James Aitchison says the extra features and ease of use "more than justifies its hefty price tag."
The Samsung NX58H5600SS looks like it should cost more than does, especially because we’ve seen it on sale for as low as $808. (At that price, it rivals the retail price of our budget model pick.) The five gas burners range from 5,000 to 17,000 BTU, giving you control and versatility based on what you want to cook. It comes with a useful stovetop accessory: a cast iron griddle for pancakes, burgers, and bacon. Both preheating and boiling are quick. Inside, the 5.8-cubic-foot capacity true convection oven is more than spacious. It also has a self-cleaning setting. If you’re in the market for a gas range and see this on sale for around $800, you’re definitely getting more features than you’d normally find at that price.
