Cherelle Fournier Electric Range February 05, 2019 07:58:24
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.
The cousin of the budget electric model, the Whirlpool WFG515S0ES is one you should keep your eye on if you’re thinking of buying a new gas range but don’t want to shell out tons of money. We’ve seen it on sale for under $500. A low price isn’t enough of a reason to buy an appliance, however. The four-burner top has some versatility, with the 5,000 BTU burner being best for simmering and the 15,000 BTU burners being better suited to heating quickly and searing. Inside the 5.0-cubic-foot cavity, you won’t find a convection fan, but it does have a self-clean feature — something that’s not always offered at this price range.
