You might be wondering what a range is. A kitchen equipment with an integrated cooktop and oven is referred to as a range. You’re likely thinking, “Oh, you mean a stove,” at this point. You could also favour the word “oven.”
The use of terminology for this equipment may differ depending on where you were raised. We can all agree on one thing, though: Your range is one of the main players in your kitchen, whether you’re warming up canned soup or making a roast for a large gathering.
Ranges come in four varieties: gas, electric, induction, and dual-fuel.
Although the age-old argument over whether gas or electric ranges provide better cooking outcomes is certainly familiar to you, dual-fuel and induction ranges may not be. Gas and electricity are both used in dual-fuel ranges, which generally have a gas cooktop and an electric oven. Electric ovens and induction cooktops are both features of induction ranges, which use a magnetic field to heat your cookware.
With yet another amazing line, Samsung maintains its impressiveness. Five sealed burners with BTU outputs ranging from 5,000 to 18,000 are on top of this slide-in type. When necessary, a griddle that is provided sits neatly on top of the oval-shaped burner in the centre.
Our experiments revealed that while neither the minimum nor maximum temperatures were very high, they were sufficient to get water boiling and to cook most foods at a minimum temperature of 120°F. Instead, you might wish to consider an induction range if you want extremely low simmers.
Thanks to a fantastic oven loaded with practical functions, the Samsung NX58K9500WG is a baker’s joy. For even baking, it has a real convection fan. Compared to rival items, the preheat time is quicker. There is also a warming drawer for warming up side dishes or preheating plates.
During testing, we cooked pork, biscuits, and cakes, all of which turned out well. The Samsung NX58K9500WG gas range is a dream come true if you love to cook with gas. Review of the Samsung NX58K9500WG in its entirety.
- genuine convection
- includes a warming drawer
- Quick preheat

PHS93XYPFS for GE Profile
The GE Profile PHS93XYPFS is a no-brainer choice for induction cooking because to all the advantages of smart technology, superb cooking performance, and high-end aesthetics.
Its lightning-quick boiling times and extensive temperature range—from blistering highs to simmering lows—impressed us throughout testing. After producing a batch of uniformly cooked cookies on both normal and convection settings, the oven also demonstrated its efficiency. The smart features that have been added are the cherry on top, including SmartHQ capability for remote control and an integrated camera embedded into the oven to watch food as it cooks.
Unfortunately, the air fry setting produced variable results for us, but with some tweaking (and other accessories), you might be able to make that feature work for you as well. Read the entire review of the GE Profile PHS93XYPFS.
- Well done
- excellent performance in the kitchen
- Wi-Fi tracking and remote control
- Air fry setting falls short
- Some features require an additional purchase.
WGE745C0FS by Whirlpool
The Whirlpool WGE745C0FS electric two oven range is outstanding in every way. It excelled in every test we gave it, from boiling water to baking pizza. Its multitasking capabilities set it apart from competing models, especially the capacity to concurrently bake two different meals at various temperatures and accommodate at least four pots on the stove.
This series has a tonne of functions, such as Sabbath Mode, Quick Preheat, and Frozen Bake. Although there isn’t an air fry setting, the True Convection mode still yields beautifully crispy results. It is made to fit most kitchens and is available in stainless steel, black, and white finishes. Regardless of the finish, the ultra-sleek, smooth cooktop on this range is why we enjoy the way it looks.
When we tested the True Convection setting in the lower oven, the only minor drawback we could identify with this range was the inconsistent baking of cookies. Despite this, this remains our favourite electric range. Read the entire review of the Whirlpool WGE745C0FS.
- dependable burners
- large oven size with a large cooktop
- bakes uniformly on a single pan
- Between two pans, the lower oven doesn’t bake cookies evenly.
