Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Super-fast boiling
The two front elements can boil water faster than practically any electric or gas cooktop. They can boil 1.5 liters of water in only three minutes, which makes this range perfect for cooking pasta or blanching vegetables quickly.
Pro Has true convection
The convection fan has a heating element that provides more even temperatures and more efficient cooking compared to convection units that don't have such an element.
Pro Elegant handy LCD displays
Instead of marked levels around the control knob, this unit has LCDs on top of the knobs. This is a more elegant and convenient way to display the power levels.
Pro Can temporarily boost heating power
If you need to get something hot quickly, there is a boost function that provides extra power for 10 minutes.
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 the traditions.
Pro Automatically converts cooking temperatures
The range automatically lowers the cooking temperatures when convection heating is used.
Pro Indicates hot surfaces
Each induction heater has an indicator that informs you whether the heating surface is hot or not.
Pro No direct heating of the cooktop surface
The cooktop of this range uses induction heating technology. The inductive coils heat up cookware without providing direct heat to the surface. After removing a pot or a pan, the surface will be warm due to the contact with hot cookware, but it will cool down quickly.
Pro Can store frequently used settings
The range has an option to save commonly used temperature and time settings, so you don’t need to set them up all the time.
Pro Rapid preheating
The oven and broiler preheat very quickly. For convection roasting, it doesn’t even need any preheating. Just put the meat in, and you are ready to go.
Pro Broiler distributes heat evenly
Since it provides a uniform heat distribution, when cooking with the broiler you can be sure that you will not end up with half of your food overcooked and the other half undercooked.
Pro You can keep your food warm using the warming drawer
You can keep your already cooked food warm by storing it in the oven's warming drawer, while rest of the food finishes cooking.
Con Hard to find the right cookware position
It’s hard to line up cookware on the cooktop, since what marks the area where they should go are gray ‘X’ marks, which aren’t convenient at all.
Con Broiling is slow
The broiler gives very good results, but the process is too time-consuming.
Con You can't control the warming drawer's temperature
The warming drawers temperature can’t be changed nor can it be turned off.
Con Controls are awkwardly placed
The control panel and knobs are located at the back of the cooktop, so you have to reach your hands over pans and pots when you want to access them.
Con Uneven baking performance
The oven provides mixed results when baking. While it can bake large items, such as cakes, almost perfectly, it tends to burn thin items. When baking cookies, they come out uneven, indicating that heat isn’t distributed evenly.
Con Not compatible with all cookware
Induction technology will not work with all cookware. You may have to change some of your pans and pots.
Con No steam cleaning
This range only has a pyrolytic self-cleaning option. While pyrolytic cleaning is very effective, it isn’t recommended to use it too often, as it is harsh to the range itself.
