Consider a lower-priced, freestanding gas range, such as the Samsung NX58F5700 or the Kenmore 74343, instead of the middling Samsung NX58H9500WS. Is a slide-in range on your must-have list? Take a look at the KitchenAid KSGB900ESS, a similar range with a solid cooking performance.
Imperfections aside, the KitchenAid KSEG950ESS is a strong performer overall that would be a good investment for folks without a ventilation system in their kitchen. Just be prepared to shell out $3,149.
The Kenmore Elite 97723 is a great performer, but its high price and tricky controls make models such as the Samsung NE59J7850WS a more appealing option.
Skip the LG LDG4315ST and its ineffective upgrades. Consider a simple gas model like the Kenmore 74343 or KitchenAid KGRS306BSS.
Despite some issues, the KitchenAid KFDD500ESS is a strong option for the home cook who multi-tasks at mealtime.
Dacor Renaissance ER30DSCH
Though the investment is substantial, the Dacor Renaissance ER30DSCH is a worthwhile purchase for the avid, patient home cook who's willing to experiment to find the right oven settings for their baking needs.
Samsung NE59J7630SB ( Black)
The Samsung NE59J7630SB has a few kinks, but the overall performance and the $949 price make this range a good pick for the home cook.
Dacor Renaissance 36" Gas Range RNRP36GS
The Dacor Renaissance RNRP36GS would make a nice showpiece in a kitchen. But there are much cheaper ovens that deliver outstanding performance at a much better value than this $7,000 range.
The Kenmore 95073 is a worthwhile investment if you want an induction cooktop without spending $3,000 on comparable models.
KitchenAid KSGB900ESS ( Stainless Steel)
This range is a solid choice if the appearance of your appliance is important in your buying decisions. But there are plenty of gas ranges that provide similar features at a better value.
