Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great value for money
With a price tag below $800 and overall impressive features, this range is an excellent product when it comes to price-performance ratio.
Pro Impressive oven performance
The oven delivers very good baking performance despite not having any convection units or specialized modes. It takes only a short while for the oven to reach the desired temperature. Temperatures are distributed evenly throughout the cavity, preventing burned or undercooked items.
Pro Suitable for both high and low temperature cooking
There are four heating elements on the rangetop, one of which is a double ring useful for both small and large pots. All of the elements can reach temperatures high enough for stir-frying and searing. Additionally, the elements can provide low temperatures, ideal for simmering and melting.
Pro Easy to clean
The range has a self-cleaning system, which heats up the cavity to extreme temperatures to burn off the debris. However, as this procedure imposes some stress onto the oven, it's not recommended to use it too frequently.
Con Broiler akes a while to heat-up
It takes 8 minutes for the broiler to heat up, which is rather slow, even for a budget range.
Con Heating element might get messy
The heating element is exposed, so you need to be careful not to spill anything on it, as this will produce a lot of smoke and mess.
Con Small oven
Measuring only 4.8 cu.ft, this isn't a very big oven.
Con Storage drawer can only be used to store small, light items
The storage drawer isn’t very robust or spacious, so it's not really suitable for storing large and heavy items inside.
