At first glance, there's a lot to like about the Samsung NX58H9500WS, but on closer looks, this oven leaves me a little bit Get cold.
Let's start with some of the things I liked about the oven.
Now, first this oven looks great.
It's a 30-inch wide gas model that's a slide-in oven, which means it's gonna sit flush against your countertop and show off that nice backsplash you have at home.
The oven also has a really cool control panel that is in sleep mode until you touch a little button in the corner to let it know, hey, I wanna use you.
The Samsung's cooktop is also pretty impressive.
The double ring burner boils water super fast, in about 11 minutes or so.
Which is pretty good in our boil water test.
But when it came to the oven I was pretty disappointed.
The convection mode that I used for baking two racks of biscuits produced some really uneven biscuits that were more brown on the top rack Than on the bottom rack.
Also the chicken I roasted in the oven was a little too pale for my taste, and the broil time?
Hm, not too good.
This oven also comes with some nice accessories, that include a griddle, a wash ring, a temperature probe, and a split rack that goes in the oven for when you really have to maneuver and bake a lot of things at once.
Unfortunately, good looks Nice accessories and decent boil times does not a great oven make.
This oven is $2,499 which is a little expensive for the middling performance that we saw.
