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."
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."
