Chardae Marchand Electric Range February 07, 2019 09:27:34
First things first, the Wolf DF304 is called a dual fuel range because it has a gas cooktop and an electric oven, offering more precision on the stove and more even heating in the cavity. This range is definitely aimed at the wealthy and those who get a lot (and we mean a lot) of use out of their kitchens. That being said, the Wolf offers a lot of things no other range in this price range does. The cooktop has four burners with the following BTUs: 9,200, 15,000, 18,000, and 20,000. They can be turned up high for a fast boil, but they also go down to 300 BTU for simmering. The 4.5-cubic-foot double convection oven has ten cooking modes, including bake and convection bake, and one specifically made for dehydrating food. Some of the optional accessories include a kit for all that food you’re going to dehydrate and a bake stone. If you like the stainless steel professional look, this range certainly has it, and it allows for some customization, such as knob color. The oven’s interior is blue porcelain, similar to the LG oven. The Wolf range is definitely expensive, but you’re paying for more than just its looks.
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.
