Not only does KitchenAid's $1,649 KGRS306BSS have a delightfully responsive touchscreen, it can also make a tasty batch of burgers impressively fast.

It comes with five burners and a griddle.

You'll need to place the griddle over either the left or the right burners for a more evenly-distributed heat, though.

The burner knobs are easy to control.

It's a burger-broiling pro.

It can also make a delicious roasted chicken.

The display looks fine, if not a little utilitarian.

We also baked a lot of biscuits.

The traditional mode biscuits on the top row look even more uniform than the convection mode biscuits on the bottom row.

The display can show the current time, cooking mode, temperature and more.

This range offers an exceptional value, if you can get past its bland design.
