This touch panel makes sense

The uncluttered touch panel on the Electrolux EI30GF35JS is easy to operate.

Super-sturdy burner knobs

The Electrolux EI30GF35JS sports some very impressive and sturdy front-mounted burner knobs.

The power to boil and sear quickly

We certainly liked the KitchenAid KGRS306BSS' ability to both boil water and broil burgers quickly.

Clean not complicated controls

Though its overall design isn't the flashiest we've seen, the KitchenAid KGRS306BSS gas range flaunts a clean and uncomplicated touch panel.

One tasty roast chicken

The KitchenAid KGRS306BSS proved particularly adept at roasting chicken. The skin was very crisp and flavorful, and the meat was not overdone.

It's always burger time

We were surprised by how quickly the KitchenAid KGRS306BSS broiled burgers.

A nice oval burner

At the center of the LG LRG3085ST's five-burner cooktop is an oval burner made to heat its bundled cast-iron griddle pan.

Yummy pork loin

Using the LG LRG3085ST's convection oven to roast a tasty pork loin was deliciously successful.

All types of accessories

The LG LSRG309ST comes with a long list of physical accessories including a griddle pan, bright blue broiler pan and an oddly shaped oven rack of unclear use.

Stainless steel all over

For less than many ovens built by its competitors, the Samsung NX58F5700 has premium good looks and is clad all over in fancy stainless steel.

This wok ring is for you

As part of the NX58F5700 deal, Samsung throws in a handy wok ring accessory.

A stunning metal touch panel

The Samsung NX58F5700's control panel takes the interesting approach of using metal to house its touch-sensitive buttons.

Finger-licking-good roast chicken

While roast chicken results didn't quite match what we've seen from KitchenAid and Dacor, what the Samsung NX58F5700 cooked was still very tasty.

Stunning slide-in style

The most compelling aspect of the Whirlpool WEG730H0DS gas stove is its striking slide-in design and handsome front-mounted controls.

Bake frozen food faster

We also liked the Whirlpool WEG730H0DS' Frozen Bake function, which worked well on frozen pizza.
