The ranges in this roundup were tested over a period of years, all adhering to the same careful procedures in a lab environment. We consider set-up and ease of use, cooking performance, and fit, finish & feel. The cooking tests are, as you might expect, the most involved and the most heavily weighted part of the process. We use cake, cookies, toast, and pork roast as the food samples—always from the same source and prepared in exactly the same way. If an oven has a convection fan, we usually test with convection on and off. If it`s a double oven, we usually test both upper and lower.
The clock lets you know what time you started and ended cooking while the timer lets you set an exact amount of time for your food to cook. It also has a control lock for safety reasons. The purpose of the control lock is to prevent you from getting burned. When your food is cooking, you cannot open the range. This is to avoid wasting heat and most especially, to avoid getting the user hurt. There are also features like temperature probes that can be inserted to the food. It will set off an alarm when the food reaches the desired temperature. There are also self cleaning ovens for the busy bees that do not have enough time to spare for cleaning. There are still a lot more cooking features and options on this device. It is up to you to choose which one suits your specific and individual cooking needs the best.
