Frigidaire's range cooks with gas but has confusing controls

Kitchen & Household
Hi guys. This is Brian Bennett for CNet Appliances and right now we're taking an up close look at the Frigidaire FPGF3077QF. This range is gas powered and it costs $1,699, that's definitely on the high end as far as stoves go. You definitely have some premium styling here. It is coated in stainless steel. And the oven actually is a true European convection oven, 5.6 cubic feet. You also have a study gas range on top with five burners. You also have this very large 18,000 BTU burner right here, which is very good for heating up Large pots of water really quickly for boiling vegetables or cooking pasta. You also get this power pre-heat mode which is designed to heat up the oven a lot quicker. The only thing you have to be aware of is that it only works in the single rack mode and it uses the convection fan to achieve that Temperature quickly. This oven is also a very solid performer. It cooks relatively quickly, and also it's oven can bake pretty evenly as well. One thing I don't like about it is that you have this touch panel up here that's extremely small. it's very confusing to operate. You can't even tell what's happening most of the time. The timer doesn't display the seconds until you reach below one minute. That also means have to put in, one number higher than you actually want. So if you want ten minutes, you have to put in 11, because it counts down immediately, from 59 seconds. It's kind of annoying, I don't know why it does that. The, lights on the front are actually very hard to see from off angle, so you have to, actually be staring Straight at it to really know if it's preheated or not also the pre heat chime is extremely soft. Making it very easy to, to just miss if you're in a large or noisy environment. So when you break it all down this Fridgidair range is a little bit too expensive for what you get. It also doesn't have a lot of features that you wanna get at this price point So, you're probably better off going with a range from Kenmore, Samsung, ir KitchenAid. I'm Brian Bennett for C-Net Appliances. Be sure to read my review of this oven as well as other ranges at cnet.com.
