Samsung makes the best slide-in double oven. It`s pricier, but if you want a slide in double oven, feedback indicates that the Samsung NE58F9710WS (Est. $2,000) is a top choice. Though it lacks the split door found in the Samsung NE59J7850WS (profiled above), it feature`s the same Flex Duo design, which means you can use it as a single oven, or insert a divider to make it a double oven. The Flex Duo system in this Samsung oven has the same pluses -- and minuses -- discussed when we covered the NE59J7850WS. It offers cooks the option of using a single 5.8 cubic-foot oven or splitting that into two independent ovens of 2.4 cubic feet (top) and 3.3 cubic feet (bottom). However, there are also some limitations on how each cavity can be used when the oven is split, so you`ll need to overcome a small learning curve to get the most out of the oven.
Cooking performance is where a range needs to shine, and the GE JB750SJSS doesn`t disappoint. Professionals and users say the smoothtop cooktop heats up fast and does an excellent job in all areas, from maintaining a steady simmer to quickly bringing ingredients to a rolling boil. CNET gives the special credit for its performance in cooking a test chicken using the oven`s convection roast setting -- saying it compares favorably with what`s seen in ovens costing more than five times as much. "The skin was golden brown and crispy, and the meat was as juicy as could be," Clark says. Broiling performance was a little on the slow side, CNET reports, but at 16 minutes to broil six hamburgers, "this oven was still faster than some more expensive ranges we`ve tested."
