If you’re looking for a coil topped range, then this is the model you’ve been dreaming about. It’s a bit on the pricey side, but the quality you’ll get for the price is hard to beat. Overall it’s a pretty simple little range: you’ve got four coils for cooking and a single oven with 5 cubic feet of space. It’s also extremely hardy, if a little bit more difficult to clean than many of the other options out there. The price really isn’t bad if you’re looking for quality cookware but aren’t ready to invest in a smooth or induction top just yet. It’s basically the best of the best when you’re looking for a reasonably priced appliance. If you’re looking for something with a lot of quality behind it but aren’t ready to step into four figures, then take a closer look at this range to add something special to your home.
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."
When choosing one, there are a few things you must consider. First check the space available in your home. You must also consider how big your family is. This device comes in all shapes and sizes. Some are big and free standing while some are smaller and placed on tabletops. The free standing ones are perfect for big families, and they are great for cooking a large amount of food. They are also perfect when using wider pans. The free standing kinds also have ovens for baking the kids’ favorite snacks. For the ones who have just started a family or for those with small families with tinier spaces, the tabletop versions are the perfect option, since they consume only a little space and can be stored anytime you want.
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.
While it lacks some of the higher-end features of other electric ranges on the list — no convection feature here — the Whirlpool WFE515S0ED is still a great deal. The four-burner range has one that pulls 3,000 watts of power, slightly less than the LG model. With 5.0 cubic feet of capacity, the oven is pretty standard, with an upper broiler element and a hidden lower baking element. The lack of a fan means cooking will be a little slower and potentially less than convection models. Though it may not have extras like a built-in temperature probe, this Whirlpool still delivers when it comes to cooking. We also like that it offers options beyond black, white, and silver when it comes to aesthetics.
The Samsung NX58H5600SS looks like it should cost more than does, especially because we’ve seen it on sale for as low as $808. (At that price, it rivals the retail price of our budget model pick.) The five gas burners range from 5,000 to 17,000 BTU, giving you control and versatility based on what you want to cook. It comes with a useful stovetop accessory: a cast iron griddle for pancakes, burgers, and bacon. Both preheating and boiling are quick. Inside, the 5.8-cubic-foot capacity true convection oven is more than spacious. It also has a self-cleaning setting. If you’re in the market for a gas range and see this on sale for around $800, you’re definitely getting more features than you’d normally find at that price.
