The LG LRE3061BD is the less expensive option in this electric range review, retailing at $799 in stainless steel and $899 in premium black stainless steel. It features an impressive 6.3 cubic foot oven capacity with fan convection and five stovetop burners. LG is a JD Power Award Winner for "Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Freestanding Ranges," so this brand is definitely worth a look!

EasyClean technology allows you to quickly steam clean your oven in just 20 minutes, which is great for freshening up the oven cavity before or after baking or roasting. Fan convection is a must for people who bake, since it helps produce more even results and bakes faster than non-convection ovens. The stovetop includes a dual 9" 3200W/6" 1400W burner that provides LG's fastest boil.

What makes this a premium range? It's all in the aesthetic! Brilliant blue interior oven lighting behind a WideView large oven window provides a professionally-inspired touch that helps you see every corner of your oven. It also comes with settings to help you make the most of the fan convection and more settings via the smooth touch controls on the backguard.

 

Features:

  • Oven Capacity: 6.3 cu. ft.

  • EvenJet fan convection

  • Five burners, including a warming burner and two 3200W power boiling elements

  • EasyClean steam cleaning oven

  • Settings include Bake, Broil, Convection Bake, Convection Roast, Multi-Rack Convection Bake, Delay Bake, Delay Clean, Proof, Warm

  • Brilliant Blue Interior and WideView oven window

  • Keypad backguard controls

LG LRE3061BD - $899

LG LRE3061BD Electric Range Black Stainless 

 

New Call-to-action

 

Next up in our electric range review: the KitchenAid KFEG500EBL is another premium electric range available in stainless steel, white, or black at $1,299, and in black stainless steel at $1,399. It features a huge oven window and a 6.4 cubic foot oven capacity with Even-Heat True Convection. True convection incorporates a third heating element and a fan to improve heat circulation. With five burners, including two dual-size elements, and oven steam cleaning options, this is one powerful appliance!

How does this KitchenAid electric range take it to the next level? In addition to true convection, the range incorporates an EasyConvect conversion system to help you adapt non-convection recipes to your convection oven. The cooktop has stainless steel trim to provide a seamless transition to other surfaces, and looks especially appealing against stainless steel counters. It has a slightly larger oven capacity and two dual elements rather than one. It comes with a Max Capacity oven rack with a dip in the middle to maximize capacity when you're using multiple racks. 

The styling is unique as well, with a contrasting stainless steel bar handle and stainless steel knobs as well. If you are interested in black stainless steel appliances, keep in mind that finishes differ a lot between brands, so be sure to check out any model you're interested in in person!

 

Features:

  • Oven Capacity: 6.4 cu. ft.

  • Five burner elements, including 12"/9" and 9/6" dual elements

  • Even-Heat True Convection

  • Aqualift steam cleaning

  • EasyConvect conversion system for adapting non-convection recipes

  • Hidden Bake element

  • Settings include Cook Time Indicator, Delay Start, Easy Convect Baked Goods, Easy Convect Meats, Easy Convect Pizza, Keep Warm Setting, Proofing, Sabbath Mode, Timer

  • Stainless steel cooktop trim for a seamless transition to other surfaces

  • Max Capacity oven rack included

Features Comparison

  • Interior & Exterior Design: The KitchenAid model has a more industrial-inspired design thanks to the bar handles and contrasting knobs. The Max Capacity oven rack is a nice touch for multi-rack cooking. The LG model has smooth touch controls and a smaller oven window. Both are available in black stainless steel, a premium finish that is naturally fingerprint resistant.

  • Stovetop: Both models offer dual burners, but KitchenAid offers two to LG's single dual burner. LG offers a slightly higher max burner wattage at 3,200 watts vs KitchenAid's 3,000 watts. Both come with five burners overall, with the fifth burner being a warming zone.

  • Oven: LG offers a fan convection oven while the KitchenAid offers true convection with a third heating element plus a greater number of convection settings. They can both be steam cleaned and do not offer traditional high-heat self cleaning options, and have large oven capacities.

 

The KitchenAid KFEG500EBL earns a slightly more premium price point with extra convection features, a Max Capacity oven rack, and a professionally-inspired design. If you have a lot of stainless steel in your kitchen, the KitchenAid's stainless steel cooktop trim would look amazing. Both options in this electric range review would be great additions to sleek kitchen designs and an ideal choice for people who love to cook and bake.
