Let's take a look at two leading Frigidaire induction range models that you should consider for your next purchase - we'll start with the model from Frigidaire's main line.
Frigidaire FFIF3054TS Induction Range Review - $1,099 MSRP
The Frigidaire FFIF3054TS induction cooktop electric range with a 5.4 cubic foot self-cleaning oven is one of the cheapest induction ranges available - other ranges with induction start at the $2,000 range. This amazingly quick cooking surface has the ability to heat and boil water 50% faster than the average electric cook top. The variable heat settings are very accurate and are the most similar experience to working with a gas cooking surface that you'll find in an electric induction range. It's easy to clean thanks to the smoothtop design and two-hour self-cleaning oven cycle.
This 30" freestanding range allows you to sear steaks, crisp the bread for sandwiches, melt chocolate or simmer sauces with the precise temperature control of induction. Dial in your desired power level and this unit will maintain the necessary heat setting. Since induction heats your cookware and not your kitchen, less energy is lost throughout the cooking process. Auto pan size detection allows multiple sizes of cookware to be used.
Frigidaire GCRI3058AF Review - Induction Range with Air Fry - $1,299 MSRP
If you are looking for a model with more features, check out the Frigidaire induction range model GCRI3058AF. This is a Gallery Series induction model that includes True Convection in its 5.4 cubic foot oven as well as Air Fry technology. The oven comes with two standard racks and seven rack positions. The 3,500W baking and 3,900W broil elements work together to rapidly produce your desired temperature selections. This convection system utilizes a rear wall-mounted fan assembly and an additional heating element to circulate hot air to bake and brown 20-25% faster and more evenly than traditional baking methods. The convection is key to air frying, too - high heat and lots of air movement help achieve that crispy crust we all love!
The induction cooking surface has the ability to auto detect the size of the pan or pot that you use, immediately taking guesswork out of the equation. No stressing over spills and boil-overs as the top simply does not generate heat, therefore food will not burn and adhere to the glass. The pan is now the element and will hold true temperatures for as long as you need it. Whether you want to simmer, boil, sear, or saute, induction cooking is much more accurate than traditional heating elements.
Available in stainless steel at $1,299 and black stainless steel, Model GCRI3058AD at $1,399. Check it out in person if you can! If you are interested in learning more about Frigidaire Black Stainless, click here to read our in-depth article!
