There are many varieties of electric ranges. There is the common one which is designed with a metal coil to heat up your food. There are also the flat top ones made from ceramic glass. The metal coil burners are the more durable ones and are very low maintenance. You can use any cookware for this type. The coil burners can heat up very fast, too. The glass top range is the one that requires more maintenance but looks very good in your kitchen. The smooth finish makes it look chic and elegant but this requires you to be extra careful when you are cleaning up. The glass top is prone to scratches and is less durable compared to the metal coils. Though it heats up slower, the glass top burner’s heat is more concentrated which makes cooking more efficient. Not all cookwares are compatible with the glass top too thus, one must be very careful in choosing the right ones. When not in use, these pretty glass surfaces can also become an extension or your countertops.
The reason the GE JB750SJSS was chosen by us as our Best Reviewed pick is because it`s a good performing range that is also very affordable. However, if you`re looking for an upgrade, and have a bigger budget, we found a few very well-reviewed higher-end models also have upgraded features. However, keep in mind that prices on ranges will vary quite a bit -- retailers often offer significant markdowns when they put the appliances on sale, so, if you have your eye on one, it may pay to keep an eye on the price. We use the price that the range was at when we reviewed it, that price may not be the one you see. The top pick at Consumer Reports in the single-oven electric range category is the Kenmore Elite 95052 (Est. $900), which earns Excellent scores for both low and high cooktop temperatures, baking, and self-cleaning; Very Good for broiling and oven capacity. But what keeps the Kenmore 95052 out of our top spot is that user feedback is neither as robust, nor as positive. We spotted fewer than 125 reviews across all three of this range`s color options and, while they aren`t terrible, they`re not quite up to the high ratings that the GE JB750SJSS gets.
