Where to Buy
 

Bottom line

The Frigidaire FGIF3061NF combines the responsiveness of induction technology for excellent stovetop performance and convection heating for very good baking performance. Broiling performance is merely average, however.  It's available in a smudge-proof stainless steel finish and has a one-year warranty.

Performance

Very responsive stovetop. The Frigidaire FGIF3061NF performs well in a recent professional test where it shows excellent stovetop responsiveness. The induction heating zones were able to bring water to a boil faster than other electric stovetops. It also did an excellent job of melting and holding chocolate and simmering a delicate sauce without scorching either. Likewise, the oven did a very good job of baking multiple racks of cookies and cakes. It only did an average job, however, of broiling a pan of hamburgers. The oven also has keep-warm, delay-bake and Sabbath modes, but none of those functions was tested.

Capacity/size

Ample oven space. The Frigidaire FGIF3061NF 5.4-cubic-foot oven has six rack positions and comes with three racks, which users say makes it highly versatile. It also has a built-in storage drawer. It's large enough to cook or bake multiple items at a time, reviewers say. It gets its best reviews from smaller families; at least one reviewer would like the option of a second oven or a warming drawer.

Features

Effective self-cleaning cycle. The Frigidaire FGIF3061NF includes a good number of convenience features. The induction stovetop has five heating zones, one of which is used to keep food warm. The oven has a large viewing window and comes with a temperature probe, hidden baking element, automatic shut-off and control lockout. It also has a self-cleaning cycle that performed very well in professional tests. The temperature probe seems to be one of the most popular features of users, especially those who describe themselves as serious cooks.
