What every best Ranges has:
- Reliable cooktop performance.
- A variety of burner sizes.
- Consistent oven temperatures.
The GE JB750SJSS provides excellent cooking and baking performance at a hard-to-beat price. It's large enough to handle a family meal and, while it's short on bells and whistles, everything that most cooks need is present and accounted for, such as five stovetop elements (including a low-power one designed to keep cooked foods warm), convection cooking, a steam cleaning feature, and more.
For the ultimate in versatility, experts say look no further than the Samsung NE59J7850WS. It features Samsung's Flex Duo system that lets cooks use the oven's entire 5.9 cubic foot capacity, or to split it into two independent ovens as needed. Raves go beyond the oven to the versatile stovetop that experts and owners say is a star in its own right.
The Samsung NX58F5700WS is a roomy and versatile powerhouse that excels at cooking on the stovetop or in the 5.8 cubic foot oven, reviewers say. It includes a wide array of convenience features, such as convection cooking, a warming drawer, fifth burner, gliding rack, a griddle, a wok grate and more. The stainless steel styling gives the range a pro-look, without the pro price tag. See our full review »
The LG LDG4315ST is well-reviewed by experts, who give it top marks for both cooktop and oven performance. It's fully-featured, with a "ProBake" convection mode, a generous capacity of 4.3 cubic feet in the lower oven, 2.6 cubic feet in the upper oven, and excellent self-cleaning performance in both. The stovetop has five burners, including a long, oval burner with a removable griddle that owners love.
The KitchenAid KFDD500ESS combines upscale features with strong overall performance to produce a high-end, dual-fuel range. The electric double oven has a convection feature in addition to several other cooking modes and the 6.7-cubic-feet capacity can handle multiple dishes for a large family or group. The five-burner gas stovetop can deliver the appropriate heat levels for anything from a gentle simmer to a rolling boil. See our full review »
Reviewers say the Kenmore 95103 is a great value for the price. It aces expert reviews, with a stovetop that rapidly brings water to a boil and gently simmers delicate sauces without scorching. The oven is a good-performer too, once you master its quirks. This Kenmore range includes some great convenience features, such as convection heating and a Power Boost feature to give the cooktop a little extra heat when needed.
