Does your electric range need replacing? Find a reliable new range made with high-quality materials that are easy to keep clean. You'll love the ceramic glass cooktops on the following three models. Smoothtop cooktops are simple to wipe clean and the ceramic glass is made for durability. Enjoy cooking large meals with spacious oven capacities and even heating, so you can place food anywhere in the oven and get consistent results every time. Choose an oven that has the features you need most, such as Frozen Bake™ technology, ADA compliance, or a warming drawer for keeping prepared food at serving temperature. Take a look at the three most reliable electric ranges of 2021, and find the one that fits your kitchen needs.
This 30-in. freestanding electric range from Whirlpool has a smoothtop cooktop and five elements up to 3,000 Watts, including a low-powered warm zone element, and a FlexHeat™ dual radiant element for small or large pots and pans. The ceramic glass cooktop is easy to wipe clean, plus it is an Upswept SpillGuard™ cooktop with raised edges for containing spills. The oven has a capacity of 5.3 cu. ft. and is capable of fan convection cooking for consistent results on any oven rack. Other oven features include Frozen Bake™ technology for cooking frozen foods, such as pizza and potpies, without preheating. The preprogrammed settings adjust the cooking times for faster results. Use the Keep Warm oven setting to keep dishes warm while you're preparing the rest of the meal. If you love to use the broiler, you'll appreciate this range's Closed Door Broiling system, which maintains temperatures inside the oven to prevent overheating, so you don't have to open the door. Clean the oven without harsh chemical cleaners using Adjustable Self-Cleaning Technology, which cleans the oven using very high temperatures. A hidden bake element also makes cleaning easier. The control knobs on the range are removable and dishwasher-safe, and the stainless steel exterior is coated with a special fingerprint and smudge resistant coating.
This 30-in. slide-in electric range from GE has a smoothtop cooktop and four elements up to 3,100 Watts, including two Power Boil elements that boil water 25% faster than standard GE elements. They also adjust to fit the size of your pots and pans. The oven has a capacity of 5.3 cu. ft., and features Dual-Element Bake, which means there are upper and lower elements inside the oven to produce even heat throughout the cavity. The self-cleaning feature uses high temperatures to reduce baked-on food to ash, which you can wipe away with a cloth, so you don't have to use harsh chemicals. The interior of the oven is illuminated with bright white LED bulbs. The controls include an exterior digital temperature display, an electronic clock, and a kitchen timer. You can lock the controls to prevent accidental use of the oven. Store your extra pots and pans in the convenient storage drawer below the oven. This GE range is made in the USA and is ADA compliant.
One of the most reliable electric ranges of the year is this 30-in. freestanding electric range from Fisher Paykel's Contemporary Series. It has a smoothtop cooktop with four elements up to 2,100 Watts that deliver fast heat when you need it, and gentle heat for slow simmering. The oven has a capacity of 3.6 cu. ft., and uses an Aerotech™ Convection Cooking System to heat up the entire interior evenly for consistent results. Cleaning up is simple with the self-clean function. High temperatures break down food residue, leaving a layer of ash that is easy to wipe away with a damp cloth. Below the oven, you'll find a warming drawer for keeping your food at serving temperature while you finish preparing the rest of the meal. This premium range is handcrafted for excellent quality. The door softly closes every time, and the classic dial controls are precise and easy to use. This oven comes with a broil pan and grill rack.
How long does an electric range last?
Electric ranges have an expected lifespan of about 13 years, potentially longer with proper care and maintenance.
Are electric ovens better for baking?
Yes, electric ovens are great for baking. The oven bake element doesn't create an intense heat, which means the bottoms of your cookies or bars won't burn as fast. Also, the oven environment is drier than in a gas oven, which is better for baking.
