Electrolux EW30EF65GS
Electrolux EW30EF65GS

Best electric range

Reviewers say the Electrolux EW30EF65GS does it all and does it well: baking, broiling and boiling. It has touch-screen controls, a convection oven, a warming drawer, stainless-steel finish and a smoothtop cooking surface. The Electrolux does very well in tests by two leading sources, and users praise this range's features. There are a few shortcomings. The controls can be confusing to use, some owners say, and the smoothtop surface is prone to scratches. This range is backed by a one-year warranty. A gas version is also available.

Samsung FE-R300SX
Samsung FE-R300SX

Budget electric range

The Samsung FE-R300SX combines a smoothtop cooking surface with a huge oven (5.9 cubic feet), but it lacks features found on higher-priced ranges, such as a convection feature in the oven or a warming drawer. Regardless, professional reviewers and owners say the Samsung is adept at baking, boiling and simmering. Most users agree and say it's also easy to clean. But we did see a few complaints about the durability of the smoothtop surface and a couple of reports of the oven breaking. Unlike many budget ranges, the Samsung FE-R300SX is available in stainless steel, white or black versions. It has a one-year warranty.

LG LRG3095ST

Best gas range

The LG LRG3095ST gas range gets high marks from experts and owners alike for its cooking performance. This range is very good at baking, broiling and simmering, though reviewers say it's slower than some ranges at bringing water to a boil. Its 5.4-cubic-foot oven has a convection feature and seven rack positions for maximum versatility. Most users say the cooktop performs well on every heat setting; their most common complaint is about the durability of the range's plastic control knobs (a problem that LG seems to have fixed by replacing these with metal knobs). The LG LRG3095ST range has a stainless-steel finish, but it also comes in black and white. It is covered by a one-year warranty.

Galaxy 60712
Galaxy 60712

Budget gas range

It's nearly impossible to find a budget gas range that performs well in professional tests. But many consumers are happy with the Galaxy 60712, a bare-bones gas range that lacks a self-cleaning cycle, a clock, an oven light and an oven window. It has only the absolute basics: four open burners and a 4.2-cubic-foot oven (still large enough for a big family meal). Also, it comes only in white and has basic analog controls. Owners generally say that this basic range cooks well, is easy to clean and offers unbeatable value for the price. The Galaxy 60712 has a one-year warranty.

Bosch HDS7282U
Bosch HDS7282U

Best dual-fuel range

Some cooks prefer dual-fuel ranges because they combine the precision and accuracy of a gas cooktop with the even cooking performance of an electric oven. The Bosch HDS7282U offers comparable performance and nearly as many features as a professional-style range for about half the price. It includes a 4.6-cubic-foot electric convection oven, a warming drawer and continuous cast-iron grates on the gas-fueled cooktop, which allow pans to slide easily from burner to burner. Pros recommend the Bosch for its even cooking and ease of use. Owner reviews, while harder to come by, are generally positive as well. This range has a sleek stainless-steel finish and comes with a one-year warranty.

Samsung FTQ307NWGX
Samsung FTQ307NWGX

Best induction range

Induction cooktops use a magnetic field to heat the cookware (which must be made of a magnetic material) while remaining cool to the touch. Professionals and users say that this technology shortens cooking times, especially for basic tasks like boiling water. In professional tests, the Samsung FTQ307NWGX excels at every kitchen task -- baking, boiling, broiling and simmering. It has a 5.9-cubic-foot convection oven with a separate warming drawer, as well as a stainless-steel finish. Users say the range heats quickly and praise its responsiveness, which many say is comparable to that of a gas stove. However, several of them are frustrated by the layout of the cooktop, which they say makes it all but impossible to use the space effectively. We also read a couple of reports of control board failures, although users say they had no trouble getting repairs under Samsung's one-year warranty.
