Frigidaire holds back on the features with this oven

The $2,399 Frigidaire FGDS3065PF is a decent dual-fuel range, but it's missing some of the bonus features we've come to expect from products at this price.

The Frigidaire FGDS3065PF is a 30-inch wide dual-fuel range, which means it has a gas cooktop and electric oven.

The cooktop is covered with continuous cast iron grates. There are only four burners on the cooktop. Ovens at this price range usually include a center burner in the middle of the cooktop.

The oven has a 4.6 cubic foot capacity. There's also a convection fan in the back wall that helps circulate air more evenly throughout the oven cavity.

The "Quick Boil" burner on the Frigidaire brings 112 ounces of water to a boil in an average of 11.87 minutes.

There are hooks on the oven door and on the special rack that you connect with a metal arm.

The range comes with a special oven rack that hooks onto the oven door. The rack extends outward when you open the door for easier access to your food.

The photos on the left shows two racks of biscuits I baked simultaneously on convection bake mode. The biscuits were surprisingly even across both racks. The pictures on the right show color representations of the brownness of the biscuits. The biscuits that baked on a lower rack level (bottom images) toward the front of the oven were the brownest.

I also baked one rack of biscuits on traditional baking mode without the convection fan in use. The biscuits toward the front browned more than the biscuits toward the back.

This chart shows the average times it took for six hamburger patties to broil in the Frigidaire. The burgers in the front corners cooked the fastest, which shows that this is the hottest area for the broiler.
