Berangaria Camillei Electric Range February 04, 2019 08:02:59
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.
Samsung makes the best electric slide-in range. While the Frigidaire Professional FPEH3077RF gives you the look of a built-in, it lacks the full seamlessness of a true slide-in, which has a slightly wider stovetop that sits on top of a kitchen counter. This styling makes kitchen clean up easier because it eliminates the gap between the stovetop and counter that typically winds up being a trap for crumbs and spills. If your kitchen is designed to accommodate a slide-in electric range, the 5.8-cubic-foot Samsung NE58F9500SS (Est. $1,560) is worth a look. It costs more than a freestanding single oven range like the GE JB750SJSS, but is relatively inexpensive compared to many slide-in models. It`s the top-rated single-oven slide-in electric smoothtop range at Consumer Reports, where it earns a Recommended nod, and is an Editors` Choice selection at Reviewed, where James Aitchison says the extra features and ease of use "more than justifies its hefty price tag."
