[MUSIC] If you're looking for a solid stove that's good looking and easy to use you should check out this $2,000 Saturn electric range from LG. For the most part LG did right by this stove. The black stainless steel is more forgiving of fingerprints than a traditional stainless steel finish. There's an roomy 6.3 cubic feet of space in the oven cavity. Plus there's an convection fan in the back wall to help Distribute hot air evenly when you bake. And it's pretty simple to use the oven. Just turn the oven mode knob to pick a setting on which you want to cook your dish, adjust the temperature on the touchpad, and hit start. This LG stove gave some respectable results in our cooking test. Though its cook times for boiling water and broiling burgers weren't the fastest we've seen in electric stoves, it was no slouch. And when we used the convection fan to bake two sheets of biscuits, the coloring on the biscuits was pretty even, save for a few spots. That shows that you can probably count on this oven when you need to bake a lot of items, like cookies On multiple racks at the same time. A nice feature of this stove is its speed roast setting. In this cook mode, you can roast something like a whole chicken without having to preheat the oven. I used this setting for this five and a half. Half pound chicken, and it came out nice and golden brown. LG has created an oven that would be a solid addition to your kitchen. Thanks to its good looks, simple controls, and decent cooking performance. Consider the stove of bells and whistles aren't your thing, but you still want to go to fiance.
