But the Frigidaire FPEH3077RF`s beauty is more than skin deep. "The oven and stovetop heat evenly, so you can bake perfectly browned cakes and steadily simmer a Bolognese without scorching," the editors at Good Housekeeping say. The stovetop has four cooking elements plus a keep warm element. The cooking elements range up to 12 inches and 3,000 watts, and two can be bridged to accommodate long cookware, such as a griddle. The 6.1-cubic foot oven has a convection cooking mode. Other features include a built-in temperature probe and a storage drawer. Owners appreciate the versatility that all of those features give the FPEH3077RF, with many saying it`s particularly handy if you frequently cook for a lot of people. Among the feedback we spotted was a 4.5 star rating at Lowe`s, based on more than 425 reviews (including some posted at the manufacturer`s web site).
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.
However, some other experts aren`t quite as impressed. CNET`s Ashlee Clark Thompson complains that the range`s specialized cooking modes over-promise and under-deliver, but adds that "Once you strip away the bells and whistles, the LG LDE4415ST is a solid range that covers basic cooking well. Opt for this model if you prioritize the flexibility that double-oven cooking brings or find yourself needing to cook chicken in a hurry (hey, it happens)." Reviewed also gives it only so-so feedback. Jessica Teich says that it`s "a fairly expensive double oven range with a great cooktop and two lackluster ovens."
Customers liked the Whirlpool electric range as it is very flexible to accommodate your cooking style. The electric range provides enough heat needed for rapid boiling and provides uniform cooking using lower temperatures for your most delicate dishes, like simmering sauces. You will be impressed by its speedy boiling, fantastic preheat time and searing temperatures. Its stainless steel body is very attractive and its matte finish grates cover the whole cooking surface, giving you the flexibility to place pans and pots anywhere on the electric range. It is a pleasure to cook on and really easy to clean the grates that are dishwasher safe. Customers liked its light indicators that alerted that the electric range is still hot – a very good safety feature. We recommend this electric range as its high temperature and boiling performance are pretty darn impressive.
The only real issue we found was that the double oven design limited space a little bit. On the other hand, the extra rack definitely comes in handy and they can be set separately so it’s a trade-off and one we’re willing to stand behind. If you’re looking for one of the best electric ranges on the market, this GE model stands head and shoulders above most of the competition. The only thing we found ourselves wishing for was an induction top, but they get prohibitively expensive in a hurry.
Freestanding electric ranges are commonplace in home kitchens. They are generally the most affordable type of kitchen range and testing shows the latest models do an excellent job of cooking all types of dishes. While the sky is the limit on pricing and features, you don`t have to break the bank to get a reliable, sleek-looking range, some of the best-performing models are also among the most affordable. If you want a top-performing range that won`t break the bank, the GE JB750SJSS (Est. $950) looks to be the top choice. It`s not been reviewed by Consumer Reports, but CNET has given it a thorough test and comes away very impressed. "Sneaky good performance from an unassuming oven," Ashlee Clark Thompson says. Users agree; we found a couple of hundred user reviews at sites like Best Buy, Home Depot and Lowe`s, and everywhere you look, user satisfaction is similar at around 4.5 stars.
