Harrietta Gauthier Electric Range February 05, 2019 07:56:48
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.
Owners break the tie among experts, however, and break it in favor of the oven. For example, it earns a solid 4.5 stars at Home Depot, with most saying that the LG LDE4415ST is a beautiful range inside and out, heats quickly and performs excellently in all cooking tasks. They really appreciate the double oven, although most use the top oven, which is a bit smaller at 3 cubic feet than the 4.3 cubic feet lower oven, but they like having the flexibility when they have bigger crowds or are baking or cooking for an occasion. Even the editors at Good Housekeeping are impressed with this oven`s suitability for families, saying you can cook chicken nuggets for the kids in one oven, while broiling salmon or baking in the other.
