Review range cookers: The 4 Best Gas Stoves and Ranges of 2023

15 Best Ranges of 2023

What is a range, you may ask? A range is a generic term for a kitchen appliance with a cooktop and an oven integrated into one unit. “Oh,” you’re probably thinking, “you mean a stove.” Or maybe you prefer the word “oven.”

Depending on where you grew up, your terminology for this appliance may vary. We all agree on one thing, though: Whether you’re warming up canned soup or cooking a roast for a big party, your range is one of the heavy hitters in your kitchen.

There are four different types of ranges: gas, electric, induction, and dual-fuel.

You’ve probably heard of the eternal debate about whether gas or electric gives you better cooking results. But dual-fuel and induction ranges are less popular.

Dual-fuel ranges combine both gas and electric fuels, typically in the form of a gas cooktop with an electric oven. Induction ranges have induction (generating heat in your cookware with the power of a magnetic field) cooktops and electric ovens.

While these different fuel types appeal to very different types of chefs, we’ve tested many ranges and judged them on the same criteria: ease of use, speediness, and cooking/baking abilities. After countless hours in the lab, we can say with certainty that we’ve found some of the best ranges out there.

The Samsung NX58K9500WG
(available at Best Buy for $2,069.99)

is our favorite gas range because of its fast water boiling and even cooking. We also love the Whirlpool WGE745C0FS (available at Appliances Connection) electric range because its burners can get scorchingly hot and its double ovens bake evenly.


The Samsung NX58K9500WS gas range.

Best Gas Range

Samsung NX58K9500WG

Samsung continues to impress with another outstanding range. This slide-in model has five sealed burners on top, ranging from 5,000 to 18,000 BTUs. An included griddle rests neatly on top of the oval-shaped burner in the center when you need it.

Our tests found that the minimum and maximum temperatures weren’t record-breaking by any means, but water boiled quickly enough, and the 120°F-minimum is enough for most kinds of cooking. If you need super-low simmers, you might want to check out an induction range instead.

The Samsung NX58K9500WG is a baker’s delight thanks to a wonderful oven packed with useful features. It offers a true convection fan for even bakes. The time to preheat is faster than competing products. There’s also a warming drawer pre-heating plates or keeping side dishes warm.

The cookies, cakes, and pork we cooked during testing all came out looking great. If you prefer to cook with gas, the Samsung NX58K9500WG gas range is a dream come true. Read the full Samsung NX58K9500WG review.


The Whirlpool WGE745C0FS is the best electric range we’ve tested.

Best Electric Range

Whirlpool WGE745C0FS

The Whirlpool WGE745C0FS double oven electric range is a knockout across the board. It passed every test we threw at it with flying colors, from boiling water to baking pizza. Its ability to multitask particularly sets it apart from other models. We loved having the option to bake two dishes at different temperatures simultaneously and fit at least four pots on the cooktop at once.

This range is chock-full of features, including Frozen Bake, Rapid Preheat, and Sabbath Mode. You won’t find an air fry setting, but the True Convection mode will produce the same deliciously crispy results. It’s available in stainless steel, black, and white finishes, so it’s designed to match most kitchens. Regardless of the finish, we like the look of this range in particular because of the ultra-sleek smooth cooktop.

The only small downside we could find to this range was the uneven doneness of cookies when we tested True Convection mode. That said, this is still the top electric range we’ve tested.

The KitchenAid KSDB900ESS dual-fuel range.

Best Dual Fuel

KitchenAid KSDB900ESS

The KitchenAid KSDB900ESS dual-fuel slide-in range has a sleek pro-style aesthetic, with shiny knobs to control the gas burners and a full touch panel to control the electric oven.

Between the oven and the baking drawer (which has three modes: bake, slow bake, and keep warm), the combined oven capacity is 7 cu. ft. That offers plenty of space for large dinner parties or food-heavy holidays. Other nice touches include a steam rack for steam baking, a wireless meat probe, and AquaLift self-clean technology.

While some of our test cookies came out a bit unevenly baked, the cakes came out perfectly and evenly browned. On their lowest setting, the gas burners came in at an astonishingly low 95°F-100°F, some of the lowest temperatures we’ve recorded that still kept the pilot light lit.

If you need fine control for your burners and mostly even baking in the oven, look no further than the KitchenAid KSDB900ESS dual-fuel range. Read the full KitchenAid KSDB900ESS review.

GE Appliances

The GE Profile PHS93XYPFS is the best induction range we’ve tested.

Best Induction Range


With all the benefits of smart technology, quality cooking performance, and high end aesthetics, The GE Profile PHS93XYPFS is a no-brainer pick for induction cooking.

During testing, we were impressed by its lightning-fast boiling speeds and wide range of temperatures—from searing highs to simmering lows. The oven also proved efficient after turning out a batch of evenly baked cookies, on both standard and convection settings. And the added smart features are the icing on the cake. It features SmartHQ capabilities for remote controlling and a built-in camera in the oven to monitor food as it cooks.

The air fry setting unfortunately left us with uneven results, but with some fine tuning (and added accessories) you could find a way to make that function work for you, too. Read the full GE Profile PHS93XYPFS review

Other Ranges We Tested


The LG LREL6325F Freestanding Electric Range was our former top-performing electric range. Its cooktop is sleek and easy to clean, and the average boil times for its five burners (two of which are dual-zone) are the fastest of any electric range we’ve tested.

This one oven-bakes cookies, pork, and pizza evenly, plus it’s got a built-in Air Fry feature that produced perfectly crispy French fries when we tested. This smart range is Wi-Fi–capable and is compatible with LG’s ThinQ smartphone app, which allows users to control their range using Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. Read the full LG LREL6325F Freestanding Electric Range review.

Bosch HEI8054U

The 30-inch Bosch HEI8054U all stainless electric range feels sturdy, looks great, comes with a ton of extra features and options, and performed well in our cooking and heating tests. While it takes a bit longer than usual to boil six cups of water, the cooktop burners are very versatile temperature-wise; they can reach temperatures between 110°F-800°F.

While we didn’t get a chance to test out the numerous extra oven options (including Bake, Variable Broil (high and low), Roast, Warm, Proof Dough, Convection Bake, Pizza, Fast Preheat, and more), our tests showed that this oven does a great job cooking meat all the way through, but may be a bit uneven in its heat application when it comes to cookies.

If you need a versatile electric range with solid burners and many cooking options, the Bosch HEI8054U is a good fit. Read the full Bosch HEI8054U review .

  • Slow boiling times

  • Uneven baking

Frigidaire Professional PCFE3078AF

The Frigidaire Professional PCFE3078AF Electric Range has the bells and whistles you expect to see in high-end appliances. It’s one of the top-performing ranges we’ve tested and has many bonus features, such as the true-convection oven that can also air fry. The smooth, glass cooktop surface makes cleaning a breeze. Performance-wise, this range received perfect scores in our oven tests, from roasting pork chops to baking multiple trays of cookies.

This gorgeous slide-in range is great for baking enthusiasts and has a built-in oven probe to help you monitor the food. However, it took a while to preheat, and bring a pot of water to a boil. Those basics aside, serious bakers will likely find a lot to like with this appliance. Read the full Frigidaire Professional PCFE3078AF Electric Range review.

Samsung NE59J7850WS

Unlike a typical dual-oven range, the Samsung NE59J7850WS allows you to divide the 5.9-cubic-foot oven cavity in two on-demand, offering a new level of adaptability. You can also bisect the door, but only when and if you choose.

Along with the oven(s), the range top easily reaches searing heats or simmering lows. Whether you want to cook a Thanksgiving turkey or cook multiple meals at once, this range can fit your needs. Read the full Samsung NE59J7850WS review.

  • Uneven baking

Samsung NE59M6850SS

We love the Samsung NE59M6850SS/AA electric range with convection. Its Flex Duo divider means it’s three ovens in one package: It can function as a large, single oven, or you can simply slide in the divider to convert it into two smaller ovens for baking two things at once.

This model also offers Wi-Fi for remote preheat, two powerful burners, great low-heat simmering, and some of the best roasting we’ve ever tested. Read the full Samsung NE59M6850SS/AA review.

  • Roasts food well

  • Fast boiling

  • Uneven baking


The LG Studio LSSE3027ST Electric Range is a fine range in terms of performance, but it’s not the best or cheapest LG electric range we’ve tested. The average boil time across its five burners (two dual-zone, three single-zone) was impressively fast.

And we like that it has useful features like ProBake Convection, Remote Start, plus the option to use the ThinQ smartphone app. Read the full LG Studio LSSE3027ST Electric Range review.

  • Uneven baking

  • Slow preheat

GE Profile PHS930SLSS

Featuring a sleek slide-in design, true convection oven, and Glide Control touchscreen, this luxurious-looking GE Profile PHS930SLSS outperformed most of the induction ranges we’ve tested.

In testing, the PHS930SLSS baked batches of evenly browned cookies and was able to preheat the oven noticeably faster than the other units we’ve tested.

There are no knobs on the cooktop; you can give commands either by sliding the Glide Control touchscreen or by monitoring the cooking process from your phone.

In addition, the two left burners can be linked for synchronized cooking at the swipe of your fingertips, making it possible to fit a large griddle.

  • Smooth and responsive button control

  • Can monitor remotely

  • Rapid induction cooking


This Haier QGSS740RNSS gas range excelled in every test we threw at it, from boiling water to baking cookies. It’s a good choice for serious home cooks, star bakers, and tech nerds looking to add to their smart appliance repertoire. We love its quick preheat, short boil times, and elevated stainless steel look, plus the cast-iron grates on the cooktop that promotes even heat distribution.

With features like Steam Self-Clean, No Preheat Air Fry, Scan-to-Cook, Frozen Pizza, Frozen Snacks, Simmer Burner, this Wi-Fi-enabled Haier range has all the bells and whistles of a smart appliance. That said, many of its features are only accessible via the SmartHQ smartphone app.

The only other minor drawback we experienced with this range was the exposed rubber bumpers on the cooktop. They’re small, but a bit unsightly and could collect dirt and grime. Overall, we think this range would make a great addition to any kitchen. Read the full Haier QGSS740RNSS review.


The LG Studio LSSG3017ST gas range is a high-end appliance with efficient burners that’ll set you up for success in the kitchen. It impressed us with its speedy boil times, adjustable warming drawer, and seamless Wi-Fi connectivity that allowed us to remotely monitor the oven. This range would be well suited for folks looking to accomplish stovetop cooking quickly, bearing in mind that the oven won’t perform quite as splendidly as the cooktop.

We noticed seriously uneven heat distribution in the cookie tests, which produced cookies that were visibly more burnt on the four corners of the tray than the ones in the middle. For its price, we’d expect more features and a more consistent oven. With its hefty price tag, we’re surprised by its lack of features commonly seen in high-end ranges, such as an air fry mode. Read the full LG Studio LSSG3017ST review.


If you’re looking for a technology-forward induction range, LG doesn’t disappoint. With the LG ThinQ app, you can check the oven timer, preheat the oven, and even turn it off without having to get up off the couch.

While it did boast excellent burner performance – boiling water as quickly as some of the best induction ranges we tested – the oven struggled to match up. Despite its ProBake Convection technology, the oven underperformed in both baking and roasting tests. Couple that with a high price tag and a touchpad that you have to push so hard it actually hurt our fingers, we’re going to give this one a pass.

$4,199.99 from Office Depot

Frigidaire Gallery FGGh4047VF

In addition to being a great range that can cook pork evenly and make delicious cookies, the big selling point of the Frigidaire FGGh4047VF is that it has built-in Air Fry.

It’s not surprising that large cooking appliance brands are looking to capitalize on the immense popularity of air fryers. During testing, this range was able to bring a bag of frozen french fries to cooked perfection using the special air fry rack much faster than it would’ve on a normal baking sheet with a normal cooking mode.

How We Tested Ranges

The Testers

Hi there! We’re Madison Trapkin and Valerie Li. As passionate food and beverage aficionados who have covered topics like meal kits and pressure cookers, we know what it takes to make a great kitchen appliance.

Whether you’re finally replacing an old range or have always wanted a wall oven, we’ve got your back.

Burner Temperature

For products with burners, we measure the maximum and minimum temperature of each burner. This is to help consumers identify which are ideal for simmering soup, and which can get hot enough to sear a steak. We conduct these tests by using a thermocouple to measure the temperatures of empty stainless steel bases.

A range or cooktop with multiple burners that can reach very high and/or very low temperatures will score well. If burners cannot reach very high or low temperatures—or if only one burner can do each task—scores will be lower.

Time To Boil Water

One of the most common tasks for a range or cooktop is to boil a pot of water. For each burner, we take an appropriately sized pot, and fill it up halfway with distilled water. Then, we position a thermometer horizontally in the middle of the pot, and vertically in the middle of the water column. We monitor the thermocouple and record the time it takes for the temperature of the water to reach 212°F.

If the water hasn’t reached 212°F after 35 minutes, then we stop the test. Because the water volume is different for varying burner sizes, we score the water boil test on the rate of water boiling. Faster water boiling will result in higher scores, while slower water boiling will result in lower scores.

Time To Preheat

Using a stopwatch, we measure how long it takes for the oven to achieve a preheating temperature of 350°F. We stop the clock when the oven’s preheat indicator beeps.

Because no one wants to wait around forever, shorter preheating times result in higher scores, while longer preheating times result in lower scores.

How Evenly The Oven Bakes

Reviewed / Julia MacDougall

We bake cookies in both standard bake and convection mode (if available) to see how evenly the oven can bake the cookies.

One happy side effect of testing ovens is that there are always extra cookies lying around. In addition to being delicious, cookies double as a cooking/baking proxy for other thin food items, such as brownies or vegetables.

We place 12 Pillsbury ready-to-bake sugar cookie chunks on an ungreased cookie sheet in a grid formation. After preheating the oven to 350°F for 15 minutes, we place the cookie sheet in the oven on the rack recommended by the manufacturer (or, if there is no recommendation, the middle rack) to bake for 15 minutes. We remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool for 2 minutes.

We repeat the process if there’s a second oven, or if the range or oven comes with a convection option. Because convection is commonly used to bake or cook multiple food items simultaneously, we place two trays of cookies on the two racks recommended by the manufacturer.

After looking the cookies over, we determine how evenly baked they are, both within a single baking sheet (regular baking mode and second oven baking mode) and between multiple baking sheets (convection bake mode). Because convection is generally a more efficient way of cooking or baking something, it is important that the multiple food items on different racks be cooked or baked to the same degree.

For all of our cookie tests, the more evenly baked the cookies are, the higher the score will be. If the product has a second oven and/or convection capabilities, then the cookie scores for those tests and the main oven test are weighted and combined to arrive at a final cookie score. This way, products with just a single, conventional oven are not penalized for their lack of a second oven or convection capabilities.

Overall Experience

While we go to great lengths to test the cooking/baking abilities of these cooking appliances, we also incorporate more subjective information into our overall assessment.

For example, how easily can the cooktop surface accommodate multiple pots and pans? How easy is it to understand the control panel? How loud is the preheat notification noise? We answer all of these questions and more to determine if there are any major drawbacks to the product that might not make it a good fit for most households.

What You Should Know Before Buying A Range

What Are The Different Types Of Ranges?

One of the main ways to differentiate ranges is by their fuel type: gas, electric, dual-fuel, and induction.

  • Gas — Lower cooktop temperatures, faster water boiling, potential for uneven cooking/baking because of central flame location

  • Electric — Higher cooktop temperatures, slower water boiling, more even cooking/baking because of heat distribution over coil

  • Dual-fuel — Faster water boiling, more even cooking/baking because of heat distribution over coil

  • Induction — Super faster water boiling, very high and low cooktop temperatures, requires specific cookware, may require recipe modification.

Depending on your cooking and baking priorities, as well as the way you learned to cook, one of these fuel types might be more appealing than the rest. One more thing to consider: dual-fuel and induction ranges are typically more expensive than gas and electric ranges.

What Is The Difference Between Convection And True Convection?

True Convection is an oven setting that includes installing an extra heating element and a fan in the oven. By adding an additional heating unit and fan that circulates the hot air, True Convection is great for ensuring that cookies or cakes baked on different racks will bake through at the same rate, rather than the cookies closest to the bottom heat source cooking faster than those on the rack higher up.

If you don’t see mention of “True Convection” or “European Convection,” but do see the word “convection” in a range’s specs, it means that the unit lacks an additional heating element, but does have a fan to circulate the hot air. While you don’t get the full baking and cooking effect that you would with True Convection, the added heat circulation can cook or bake food more evenly than it would without a fan.

There are also ranges out there that do not offer convection options at all; these ovens aren’t bad, it will just take more time to cook and bake food all the way through. If you’re a frequent baker or cook, convection can be a great time saver, but your dinners won’t suffer unduly without it.

What Is The Difference Between Slide-in And Freestanding Ranges?

In a nutshell, slide-in ranges are meant to sit flush with your countertops, while freestanding ranges are meant to sit on top of any surface. While slotting in and sitting on top of your countertop may seem similar, the main differences between the two involve finish and ease of cleaning.

Because freestanding ranges are visible from all slides, they have a more finished look; slide-in ranges are meant to have their sides hidden by the cabinetry, so the finish typically isn’t as pretty on the sides.

Additionally, because slide-in ranges sit flush with your countertop, they’re a bit easier to clean because they do not have a large lip around the edge. Freestanding ranges often have larger lips around the edge of the cooktop to corral any crumbs that would otherwise decorate your floor. Freestanding ranges also typically have a back-mounted control panel for the same reason.

While slide-in ranges will do fine in a freestanding arrangement, the reverse is less true. If your current cooking setup has the range sitting in a cabinet or countertop cutout, we recommend replacing that range with another slide-in range. Conversely, if your range stands alone in your kitchen, we’d recommend replacing it with another freestanding range to cut down on food debris spilling everywhere.

Should I Get a Front-Mounted Control Panel or Back-Mounted Control Panel?

As we mentioned earlier, most freestanding ranges have back-mounted controls, but some slide-in ranges do as well. Both arrangements have pros and cons; on the one hand, having back-mounted controls means you may have to reach over hot food to adjust the oven temperature, the controls are also far enough away that you would have difficulty hitting something on the control panel by accident.

On the other hand, front-mounted controls are easier to reach, but that convenience can turn against you if you brush up against a knob accidentally. Consider the ergonomics of using the range when it comes to picking a front- or back-mounted control panel.

How Many Burners Do I Need?

Depending on how much time you spend in the kitchen, it might be worth it to invest in some extra options for your range. When it comes to the cooktop, anything above the standard four-burner setup is a bonus. Some ranges can have five or even six burners.

However, the more burners a range has, the more difficult it becomes to fit large pieces of cookware, such as a Dutch oven and a frying pan, on their respective burners at the same time.

Sometimes, those extra burners are specialty burners are designed to accommodate special cookware such as a griddle or a wok; other burners are bridge burners that are meant to keep food warm without continuing to cook it.

Another possibility is to have a dual-ring burner, or a burner that includes a stronger heat source wrapped around a weaker heat source. That way, on a single burner, you can choose to use just the smaller heat source for lower temperatures, but you can add the stronger heat source if you need higher temperatures.

What Oven Features Do I Need?

As for extra oven features, they can include everything from accessories like special oven racks or a temperature probe to special cooking features like the aforementioned convection settings, fast preheat, bread proofing (where the oven settings are customized to activate yeast and make bread rise), steam cooking (where you pour water into a reservoir and gently cook something with the resulting steam), air fry mode, and many, many more options.

Ranges Buying Guide

During the pandemic, many of us have refocused our lives at home—and, specifically, in the kitchen. If you’ve been honing your skills as a home chef, your cooktop and stove might have gotten a little more wear and tear in recent months. Maybe something broke down—or maybe you’re just pining for a new or more powerful range.So where do you start? The choice between gas and electric ranges is… largely dictated by your current setup. Gas ranges require you to have either` natural gas or propane service at your home, while an electric range will work in any house, provided you have a 220-volt electric line in your kitchen. An electrician can install one if you don’t. If you’re replacing an existing range, buying a new model of the same type and size ensures that the new range will fit. Slide-in ranges—where the top will slightly overlap existing countertops—are definitely on trend. However, if you buy one to replace an old freestanding range, you may want to add a backsplash if the wall behind your old range is unfinished. If you plan to switch from gas to electric, or vice versa, you’re likely to need an electrician or a plumber to run new lines. Same goes for upgrading to a dual-fuel pro-style range, which partners gas burners with an electric oven and requires both the standard gas and electrical connections. How about “trading up” to a pro-style range? Well, you might be surprised at how little you get for the money. “Even basic conveniences that you’d take for granted on a regular range, like a digital oven display or preheat light, are often missing on pro-style ranges,” says Tara Casaregola, CR’s test engineer who oversees range testing at Consumer Reports. If you’re replacing an older radiant electric range, consider an induction range. These appliances run on the same standard electric line as a regular electric range, but their burners use electromagnetic pulses to transfer energy directly to your cookware, causing pots and pans—but not burners—to get hot. The ovens in induction ranges work just like those in regular electric ranges. Induction ranges cost a little more than radiant electric ranges, but they tend to boil water faster and simmer more steadily. As a group, induction ranges outperform all the other types of ranges in our ratings. Keep in mind that we’re still dealing with a shortage of major appliances, including ranges. You may need to allow extra time for delivery. If you’re unable to secure a range quickly, a freestanding burner and a countertop toaster oven with convection can help you get dinner on the table in a pinch.

TOP 13 best combined stoves in 2023 🥇 Rating of combined cookers

Classic gas appliances are becoming obsolete, and electricity rates are gradually increasing , which becomes the main reason for the long selection of such indispensable kitchen equipment as a stove.

The solution is surprisingly simple – to purchase a combined model that will combine the advantages of two types of equipment.

Such a device will become a universal assistant for every cook – functionally, efficiently, reliably.

Page navigation:

How to choose a combination cooker?

The choice of a quality combination cooker should be based on a detailed study of the following parameters:

  • type of device.
    Customers can choose from gas range with electric oven, electric gas range with gas oven and electric gas range equipped with electric oven.
    All devices are universal and easy to use, but differ in appearance, dimensions and capacity;
  • materials used.
    The worktop can be made of strong stainless steel, durable aluminum alloy, attractive glass ceramic or durable enamel.
    The last option is the most practical, because the enamel is resistant to corrosion and can be easily cleaned from all sorts of complex contaminants;
  • number of heating zones.
    The classic combination cookers are equipped with four burners, which can be either gas only or partially gas, partially electric.
    However, in stores you can find devices with two heating zones – this is the best compact solution for a kitchen with a small area;
  • additional functions.
    Modern combo cookers are often complemented by a timer, the possibility of automatic ignition and a gas control system that guarantees safe operation.
    Some models are supplemented with a program to maintain the mode selected by the user and have an electric grill;
  • construction dimensions.
    Traditional slabs have the following parameters: width – from 50 to 60 cm, depth – up to 60 cm and height – 85 cm. – ideal for a large kitchen, where often and a lot of cooking.

0002 Having firmly decided to purchase a combined device for installation in the kitchen, should compare the pros and cons of devices and learn more about their features – this approach will help you choose a worthy model that will faithfully serve the user for many years.

GEFEST as well as an overview of important device parameters

The equipment is supplemented with stable cast iron grates, which make it easy to install heavy dishes on the hob.

It is worth taking into service the presence of an advanced security system – the model has a gas control function.

One of the reviews:

We use the stove for about a month, in general we are satisfied. When buying, they looked for real reviews, but there were very few of them. The stove is decent, the oven bakes well, but one side of the top ten heats up more. Electric ignition … It’s annoying that sometimes you need to keep it pressed for a long time so that the gas does not go out. But the safety is worth it. Gas control prevents the gas from igniting immediately. A width of 50 cm is enough, for us it was the main point when choosing a stove. Separately, I want to say about the storage box. He is very cool! There you can put a couple of pots and pans. There will also be space left 🙂 the kit comes with two baking sheets and a wire rack, grill or skewer, we didn’t even look. Everything you need to connect is included in the kit. The verdict is this: the stove lived up to expectations.

New Kaiser cookers in 2022 – overview of the newest models for 2022

The new 2022 Kaiser cookers will be reliable assistants in your kitchen, because they are truly intelligent appliances that have all the necessary functions for creating real culinary masterpieces.

Brand engineers are constantly working to improve products, introducing innovative developments and the latest technological solutions in order to make the equipment not only more practical, but also convenient in everyday use.

Environmentally friendly and durable materials ensure safety and a long service life, and thanks to the high energy efficiency class, electricity consumption is optimized. The heat source for the new Kaiser cookers can be not only electricity, but also gas. In this case, they are most often combined, because if for a hob a live fire is an excellent solution that allows you to accurately control the intensity of heating at each stage of cooking, then in the oven it limits the possibilities and does not allow you to introduce some options that are so important when cooking complex and demanding meals.

To make cleaning the new 2022 Kaiser ovens easy and simple, the interior of the oven has been coated with a specially formulated enamel. It has practically no pores, and its surface is absolutely smooth, so dirt can be easily removed from it. In addition, some models have special catalytic panels: when heated, they decompose fat into components with the help of catalyst substances, preventing it from being deposited on the walls. The inner glass on the door is usually removable, so it can be washed from all sides.

  • Combined cooker Kaiser HGE 93555 ElfEm. The list of new Kaiser stoves opens with a luxurious ivory model in retro design. 5 gas burners of various capacities provide a wide range of cooking options, electric ignition makes it easy to start work, and gas control automatically stops the gas supply when the flame goes out. The presence of a WOK adapter allows you to cook in dishes with a round bottom, which is ideal for Asian dishes. The oven has several heating modes, including defrosting. A cold front reduces the risk of burns.
  • Electric cooker Kaiser HC 62010 B Moire Eco. The glass-ceramic surface with high-performance Hi-Light heating elements has an off timer, and the oven provides combinations of classic top and bottom heating with grill and convection in various combinations. The door is dismantled, and the presence of a drawer for dishes adds comfort.
  • Electric cooker Kaiser HC 62010 W Moire. White model from the Modern series with glass-ceramic surface. Residual heat indication allows you to use it to finish cooking, the thermostat maintains a uniform temperature in the oven, and mechanical switches make it easy and simple to set all the necessary operating parameters.
  • Combined stove Kaiser HGE 93505 R. The main feature of this model is the Intelligent System electronic programmer equipped with a multifunctional display. The oven has removable racks that can be washed in the dishwasher, and 8 heating modes allow you to choose the best one for any recipe.
