Double-oven ranges offer plenty of versatility. If you want the ultimate in flexibility out of your range, without breaking the bank, we highly recommend taking a look at the Samsung NE59J7850WS (Est. $1,560). It gets excellent feedback from owners and experts, including Recommended status at Consumer Reports, with Excellent or Very Good scores in every measure of cooking performance. It`s also an Editors` Choice selection and Best of the Year winner at Reviewed, where Kori Perten largely applauds both performance and value. This oven uses Samsung`s Flex Duo system; unlike traditional double oven ranges, it gives the cook the option of using a single 5.9 cubic foot cavity oven, or splitting that space with a removable ceramic divider to create dual, independent ovens with capacities of 2.7 cubic feet for the upper cavity and 3 cubic feet for the lower one. To aid in flexibility, the oven features a split door system that lets you open the door for just the top cavity, or for the entire oven.
Owners break the tie among experts, however, and break it in favor of the oven. For example, it earns a solid 4.5 stars at Home Depot, with most saying that the LG LDE4415ST is a beautiful range inside and out, heats quickly and performs excellently in all cooking tasks. They really appreciate the double oven, although most use the top oven, which is a bit smaller at 3 cubic feet than the 4.3 cubic feet lower oven, but they like having the flexibility when they have bigger crowds or are baking or cooking for an occasion. Even the editors at Good Housekeeping are impressed with this oven`s suitability for families, saying you can cook chicken nuggets for the kids in one oven, while broiling salmon or baking in the other.
