Bottom line

The Bosch HDI7282U is an excellent dual-fuel option if you want a seamless, built-in look. This slide-in range offers sleek styling and dependable performance with both the stovetop burners and the oven. It's also easy to use and clean. The main drawback is minor: Users say the control knobs are made with plastic covered in metallic paint.

Performance

Baking perfection. The Bosch HDI7282U performs well in professional testing at the Good Housekeeping Research Institute. Testers say the burners heat evenly and can maintain a steady simmer. The only drawback is the burners are slow to boil water, but this is a common complaint about gas burners in general. The electric oven heats evenly, turning out "beautiful" cakes and cookies. Reviewers say the broil function also works well. The oven has several cooking modes including convection, dehydrating, proofing, delayed-start, keep-warm and Sabbath modes. It also has a warming drawer that works beautifully according to reviewers at Lowes.com

Capacity/size

Big enough for most needs. The 4.6-cubic-foot Bosch HDI7282U slide-in oven is large enough for most household baking needs and offers lots of variety with seven rack positions. It comes with one full extension rack and two standard racks. It does not have a storage drawer. Users say it's a great dual-fuel oven for smaller kitchens, providing the versatility of a larger range in a more compact package.

Features

Good balance of features and simplicity. Considering the number of convenient features, the Bosch HDI7282U is remarkably easy to use, experts at Good Housekeeping say. The stovetop has four sealed burners with individual but continuous grates. This allows for the convenience of easy cleaning as well as the ability to slide pots and pans off a burner. The oven comes equipped with electronic controls, a hidden bake element and a temperature probe. Testers say the self-clean cycle does an excellent job.
