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."
If you want a pro-style range at a price that`s a little lower than many professional-grade ovens, look no further than the Frigidaire Professional FPEH3077RF (Est. $2,070). It`s an Editors` Choice and Product of the Year winner at Reviewed, with an overall score of a perfect 10 out of 10, and is named the top electric range after testing at Good Housekeeping. The FPEH3077RF has the look of a slide-in but will fit into the space of a freestanding model. "It`s a handsome range, covered in a flat expanse of smudge-proof stainless steel and topped with a black electric rangetop," says Reviewed`s Kori Perten. "Handles are shiny and set into pro-style brackets—a look that stands on its own without mimicking pricier models."
First things first, the Wolf DF304 is called a dual fuel range because it has a gas cooktop and an electric oven, offering more precision on the stove and more even heating in the cavity. This range is definitely aimed at the wealthy and those who get a lot (and we mean a lot) of use out of their kitchens. That being said, the Wolf offers a lot of things no other range in this price range does. The cooktop has four burners with the following BTUs: 9,200, 15,000, 18,000, and 20,000. They can be turned up high for a fast boil, but they also go down to 300 BTU for simmering. The 4.5-cubic-foot double convection oven has ten cooking modes, including bake and convection bake, and one specifically made for dehydrating food. Some of the optional accessories include a kit for all that food you’re going to dehydrate and a bake stone. If you like the stainless steel professional look, this range certainly has it, and it allows for some customization, such as knob color. The oven’s interior is blue porcelain, similar to the LG oven. The Wolf range is definitely expensive, but you’re paying for more than just its looks.
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.
There are other options for this device that are fresh on the market. These are the ones with induction cook tops. The induction cook top heats the pan without heating the surface of the range. This is made possible by using electromagnetic energy. The induction is the safest choice for families since the surface does not heat up at all, thus lowers the risk of burning your skin. It is also very energy efficient since the range does not need to heat up the air around the cooking pans, since the heat is very concentrated. It cooks your food pretty quickly too. It also has features to make cooking easy for everyone. Pre-heat beeps are programmed to let you know when the range starts heating. Auto shut off features are also there to help you minimize excess energy consumption and avoid over cooking your food. This is also a feature to avoid over heating that can cause fire if not turned off in time. Oven lights and an oven window are designed so that users can check if their food is already cooked without opening the oven and wasting heat. Most of them also have clocks and timers since time is a vital element to consider when cooking or baking.
But while the overall tenor of the feedback is positive, we did see some dissenting voices. CNET, for example, is less impressed, finding "too many minor annoyances for an appliance at this price," including some convoluted controls and excessive smoke when broiling hamburgers, thought that last complaint isn`t widely echoed in user comments. Negative user comments about the Frigidaire FPEH3077RF don`t follow any real pattern, although one appears over and over: the timer is too quiet and sounds only briefly. Quite a few owners say they`ve had to purchase a separate timer or use their phone. In spite of that, most love the range, and say it works wonderfully. And, of course, all agree that it`s very attractive.
