Dual-fuel ranges combine the responsiveness of a gas cooktop with the even heating of an electric oven. The Bosch HDS7282U is the freestanding version of the HDI7282U, which is one of the best-rated dual-fuel ranges in tests conducted by Good Housekeeping. This model earns praise from testers for its even cooking, its ease of use and its range of features, such as a convection oven, a warming drawer and a temperature probe for roasting meats. The one user who reviews this range praises its spacious 4.6-cubic-foot oven and beautiful browning but expresses frustration with the range of burner sizes, saying that the low-power simmer burner is not very useful. If you are willing to settle for an all-gas range, the LG LRG3095ST (*Est. $1,500) gets very good ratings from professionals and users for its baking, broiling and simmering performance.

The Bosch HDS7282U earns a grade of B+ from Good Housekeeping, where it is evaluated based on its baking, boiling and broiling performance, as well as its features. We found only one user review for this range at Epinions.com, but it comes from a professional chef who discusses this model's pros and cons in great detail. The recent survey from J.D. Power and Associates is helpful for gauging overall satisfaction with Bosch ranges.
