Click onward to see this $1,549 Electrolux gas range up close.
The US-only Electrolux 30-inch Gas Freestanding Range with IQ Touch Controls, model number EI30GF35JS, costs $1,549.
It makes great lasagna.
The EI30GF35JS has a 5-cubic-foot capacity.
It comes with traditional- and convection-bake modes to accommodate various recipes.
Convection-bake mode makes a darn good cake.
The display panel is uncluttered.
The oven has six rack heights.
When broiling burgers, you'll want to move the rack closer to the top of the oven.
This model took over 19 minutes to cook the burgers to an internal temperature of 145 degrees, while the Samsung Gas Range with True Convection (NX58F5700) finished the same task 3 minutes faster.
The roasted chicken turned out quite well.
The design of this range is very similar to an electric Electrolux model that we've already reviewed.
The traditional-bake single-rack biscuits looked pretty good.
But, the convection-bake single-rack biscuits were even better.
Here's a direct comparison of the two, with Electrolux's traditional-bake single-rack on the top and its convection-bake single-rack variant on the bottom.
The traditional-bake double-rack biscuits were surprisingly uniform (top rack left, bottom rack right).
Interestingly, the convection-bake double-rack biscuits were less evenly cooked.
Check out this side-by-side of the traditional-bake double-rack biscuits on the top and their convection-bake counterparts on the bottom.
The cooktop features five burners.
The sturdy knobs made it easy to control the gas output.
The burner's BTUs range from 5,000 for simmering delicate sauces to 18,000 for maximum energy.
Even so, you should be able to tackle pretty much any culinary challenge with this cooktop.
