Of course, there`s more to this oven than the convertible oven cavity. The five burner stove top includes two bridgeable 1,800 watt burners (which can be used independently or together to handle large pans and casseroles), a 6-inch/9-inch/12-inch tri-element burner with a maximum output of 3,000 watts, a 6-inch 1,200 watt burner, and a low-output center element warm zone. "The NE59J7850WS`s main appeal may be its flexible oven space, but if not for the unique oven design, we`d be inclined to name its electric rangetop the star of the show," Perten says. CNET, which also gives this oven largely positive feedback, notes some unique oven modes including bread proof, dehydrate and slow cook. There`s also a warming drawer -- something not often found in double oven models -- that can also be used to store the divider when not in use.
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."
