Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Excellent value for money
With a price tag below $900, this cooktop is very versatile. It has four burners ranging from 1200 W up to 3300 W, two of which have more than one ring (a two-ring one and a three-ring one) for higher temperatures and more precise control. The cooktop also features a three-level warming zone where you can temporarily store the cooked food to keep it warm.
Pro Large oven capacity
The oven has a 5.9 cu ft. capacity, one of the largest in its price range. The back part of the racks is curved up a bit, which slightly reduces the amount of food each of them can take, but you should still have plenty of space for all your cooking needs.
Pro True convection for even and efficient cooking
With this unit, you get true convection, since the fan has a heating element that helps maintain even temperatures and make the cooking process more efficient than with regular convection units.
Pro No need to do temperature conversion math
When you use this unit's auto-conversion feature, it will automatically convert regular baking temperatures to convection baking temperatures, so getting the desired result is easy.
Pro Includes premium-level features
It comes with some features that are typically only found in high-end ranges, such as a dehydration mode, a bread-proofing mode, and a slow cook mode. This may avoid the need to buy separate appliances just for these purposes.
Pro Has a Sabbath mode
The range has a built-in Sabbath mode that allows it to be used during the Sabbath and Jewish holidays without breaking traditions.
Pro Includes two cleaning options
You can use the steam cleaning option for gentle, everyday cleaning. For deep cleaning, you can use the traditional high-heat cleaning that burns everything off in the oven.
Pro Keeps steady temperatures
The burners can maintain a steady temperature over time. This is important for, for example, making soups.
Pro Boils water fast
The stove’s front left element has a rapid boil function for quickly heating water to boiling temperature.
Pro Displays the exact temperature
The oven’s temperature is shown on a screen when it’s preheating, so you know exactly what's the current temperature.
Pro Comes in three colors
The stove is available in 3 variants: traditional white, modern silver, and black with a metallic finish.
Pro Easy to use
The controls are clearly labeled and easy to understand. The display is also bright and informative.
Con Bad for broiling
You need to keep the oven door partially open when broiling, as this range produces a lot of smoke. As a result, the back of the oven gets more heat than the front, which leads to uneven temperatures.
Con Control knobs can get too warn
The control knobs can get pretty warm if you are using the back elements on high heat settings.
Con Knobs are confusing to use
A single knob can control up to three burner rings at once, which leads to an overly high number of increments per knob. As a result, adjustments can be confusing.
