Imperfections aside, the KitchenAid KSEG950ESS is a strong performer overall that would be a good investment for folks without a ventilation system in their kitchen. Just be prepared to shell out $3,149.
The Kenmore Elite 97723 is a great performer, but its high price and tricky controls make models such as the Samsung NE59J7850WS a more appealing option.
Skip the LG LDG4315ST and its ineffective upgrades. Consider a simple gas model like the Kenmore 74343 or KitchenAid KGRS306BSS.
