Of course, there`s more to this oven than the convertible oven cavity. The five burner stove top includes two bridgeable 1,800 watt burners (which can be used independently or together to handle large pans and casseroles), a 6-inch/9-inch/12-inch tri-element burner with a maximum output of 3,000 watts, a 6-inch 1,200 watt burner, and a low-output center element warm zone. "The NE59J7850WS`s main appeal may be its flexible oven space, but if not for the unique oven design, we`d be inclined to name its electric rangetop the star of the show," Perten says. CNET, which also gives this oven largely positive feedback, notes some unique oven modes including bread proof, dehydrate and slow cook. There`s also a warming drawer -- something not often found in double oven models -- that can also be used to store the divider when not in use.
If you would be more interested in a traditional double oven range, last year`s top pick in this category, the LG LDE4415ST (Est. $1,620) remains available and still worth considering. It gets excellent feedback from owners and experts, including Recommended status at Consumer Reports, with Excellent scores for cooktop performance and oven capacity; Very Good for broiling, baking and self-cleaning. It also earns raves at Good Housekeeping, earning an overall 4-star rating, with editors saying, "When it comes to flexibility and convenience, it doesn`t get much better than the feature-rich LG 7.3 cu. ft. Electric Double Oven Range."
The clock lets you know what time you started and ended cooking while the timer lets you set an exact amount of time for your food to cook. It also has a control lock for safety reasons. The purpose of the control lock is to prevent you from getting burned. When your food is cooking, you cannot open the range. This is to avoid wasting heat and most especially, to avoid getting the user hurt. There are also features like temperature probes that can be inserted to the food. It will set off an alarm when the food reaches the desired temperature. There are also self cleaning ovens for the busy bees that do not have enough time to spare for cleaning. There are still a lot more cooking features and options on this device. It is up to you to choose which one suits your specific and individual cooking needs the best.
But performance is what`s most important, and the NE58F9500SS doesn`t disappoint. Expert and user reviewers give it high marks in basically all of the cooking tests it was tasked with, both on the cooktop (which sports the same compliment of burners found on the NE59J7850WS) and in the oven itself. Although, as noted, it`s been around for a few years, or maybe because it`s been around for a few years, the NE58F9500SS looks to be a great choice if you want a really versatile, slide in double oven upgrade.
The biggest thing separating this one from our favorite is the price. We just felt the limited improvements didn’t quite justify the much higher pricing for the average person. The top is made of smooth glass and has five different burners for different pots and pans. It also lacks a backsplash which gives a sleek look to the whole appliance. The bottom is another pair of ovens, one convection and one standard electric. They’re roughly the same as our top pick, a standard electric upper and a convection lower adding up to a ton of different cooking possibilities. If you’re willing to spend the extra money for much better styling, then go ahead and add this range to your home. It’s great all the way around.
However, this flexibility comes with some limitations. For example, the top oven lacks a standard bake setting, Reviewed notes, meaning you need to bake with fan convection if using the top oven; true convection cooking is available in the lower oven, or the entire oven if you remove the divider. Also, while you can bake in the lower oven while broiling in the upper one, "the lower oven can`t be set below 400°F—or 325°F if you`re broiling on Low." All of that means that there`s a little bit of a learning curve in mastering how to use this double oven to maximum advantage, and Perten says that spending some time with the owner`s manual is a must. However, that learning curve doesn`t seem to hinder owner enjoyment too much. User feedback is quite good, including a 4.6 star rating at Best Buy based on over 600 reviews.
