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.
How does this device work? As you turn the control switch on the device, the electricity flows to the coil and heats up the metal. You will know when the electricity is flowing to the metal coils at the top of the stove when they turn to a bright orange or red. The higher you adjust the controls, the more electricity goes to the metal coils, thus getting hotter and hotter. It may take a while for the coils to cool down. It is a great option when you are concerned about the safety of your home or even your kids. It does not emit any gas that might be hazardous to one’s health. It also does not have an open flame that can be pretty dangerous when exposed to other common flammable materials in your home. Easy to install,all you have to do is plug it in and start using it, unlike the gas range that requires careful connection to a gas source. It is very easy to clean up too. This makes it very low maintenance and extremely easy to use.
