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."
This Samsung range is loaded with features, including a convection oven with a broiler, food temperature probe and LED display. There are five burners, including a warming burner, and a storage drawer. This slide-in range has been available for a few years now, enough time for it to build a good number of reviews to show that owners like it just as well as the experts do. In the hundreds of comments we evaluated at sites such as Best Buy and Home Depot, the vast majority say they are very happy with this range, adding that it`s easy to clean and use and that they love the way it looks in their kitchen. More importantly, they praise its great performance in all aspects of cooking. The only real complaint we saw was that the black cooktop shows every smudge -- a not uncommon complaint about all black smoothtop cooktops.
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.
The GE JB750SJSS features five cooktop elements, including a dual-power 6-inch/9-inch one that can deliver up to 3,100 watts of power and a 12-inch/9-inch one that can deliver 3,000 watts. The other elements include two 6-inch burners that deliver up to 1,200 watts and a 6-inch center warming element that delivers 80 watts. The 5.3-cubic-foot oven offers modes for convection as well as conventional cooking -- and the convection setting is reported as excellent by those who bought it specifically for that feature, backing up CNETs findings. It`s a little smaller than you`ll find on some competing ranges, but still should be sufficient to handle the needs of a typical family At this price you won`t find too many extra features, but a steam clean feature draws some kudos. The JB750SJSS has a stainless steel finish, but you can also find the same stove in a variety of other colors, including white as the GE JB750DJWW (Est. $950), black as the GE JB750DJBB (Est. $950), slate as the GE JB750EJES (Est. $950), black slate as the GE JB750FJDS (Est. $1,100) and black stainless as the GE JB750BJTS (Est. $1,100).
The Frigidaire cooking range is for consumers looking for a super sleek package including both range top cooking and conventional oven. Customers liked its super smooth touch controls which wake up with a touch of your finger tips, and go to sleep when not in use. You will find it very easy to use, to cook and bake your favorite meals. You will fall in love with its perfect cook settings, which automatically compute the temperature and timings for your dish. Its broiler can produce fantastic steaks worthy for an outdoor grill. We recommend this amazing electric range due to its solid performance, astounding temperature range, and lightning fast boil speeds. It is a superb value for the money and a must for every food lover.
Doesn`t matter, though; most experts and most users give the Samsung NE58F9710WS top grades anyway. It`s the top-rated smoothtop double oven at Consumer Reports, and earns Recommended status there. It`s also an Editors` Choice at Reviewed and earns a 4 star rating at CNET, one of the better grades awarded any oven by that site. It`s been on the market for a few years now, more than enough time to build up a track record among users, including a 4.6 star rating at Best Buy based on more than 180 reviews. The Samsung NE58F9710WS draws praise across the board for its design and overall good looks. "While the Flex Duo System is undoubtedly the star of the show, the NE58F9710WS also features a slick "transitional" design that blends hefty controls with an innovative control panel," Reviewed says. "The overall look will match any kitchen, and the slide-in format gives the appearance of being part of the original cabinetry design."
