CNET First Look
LG's ProBake line still needs some tinkeringThe simple LG LRG4115ST 30-inch gas range boils water quickly and roasts a beautiful chicken, but the $1,600 range doesn't live up to LG's hype or price tag.
[MUSIC] WIth the LG LRG4415ST we're getting a lot the same from this manufacturer. Now this oven from LG is a gas range that's 30 inches wide and covered in stainless steel. It looks Really good, with nice sturdy handles, and blocky features. But when it gets to performance, it's a little up and down. Let's take, for instance, the chicken. Now LG ovens that I've tested can roast a mean chicken, and this oven was no different However, when it came time for my double rack biscuit test, the biscuits on the bottom rack were consistently a lot browner than the ones on the top, which was a really big disappointment. Especially since this oven is equipped with the Pro Bake convection feature that LG likes to brag about. And the broil times for this oven are also pretty Slow. It took an average of 20 minutes to cook six hamburger patties. Which is pretty slow when it comes to gas ranges. Now the hamburger patties were pretty good and juicy and had a nice sear on them. But I don't want to wait all day to eat a burger. Now even though the oven did have other redeeming qualities like fast boiled [UNKNOWN] and easy to use features it's not enough to make this range Which costs $1,599.99 worth the price? Unfortunately, the spotty performance from this LG makes me wanna look at some other gas ranges. [MUSIC]
