Slide-In Electric Range Reviews
1. Frigidaire Professional FPEH3077RF - 6.1 cu ft - $2,499
The Frigidaire Professional FPEH3077RF front control freestanding electric range has been totally re-designed with many new and improved user-friendly features. At first glance, most would assume that this is a slide in range rather than a typical freestanding unit. The answer is - it's both! Along with the all-new design is its ability to be installed outside of cabinets due to its full-depth side body panels and top. If it were to be installed at the end of a countertop, the sides are factory finished as opposed to the older unfinished look. In the past, many manufacturers also needed filler strips or a 2” countertop strip behind the range in order for it to fit properly. This is no longer needed as the range now reaches the rear wall much like a rear-controlled range.
The 6.1 cubic foot capacity oven with PowerPlus Convection option makes for easy convection baking or roasting with restaurant-quality results. Easy-set controls offer simple turn-style knobs for selecting oven modes and temperatures. Oven heating is supplied via the two 8-pass bake and 8-pass broil elements that heat evenly, which give you superb cooking results. Plus, an included temperature probe will display the food's interior temperature so it won't be over- or under-cooked. Get the perfect roasting results every time! This interior is well-lit by two wall-mounted halogen lights.
When it comes to the cooking surface, this Professional model is fully loaded. The black glass, stainless steel trimmed top has two left side 7” 1,800 watt burners that bridge together, transforming into the perfect heating arrangement for any oblong-styled cookware or a griddle. The right rear 6” 1,200 watt element is a nice feature for additional heating and the expandable 9” to 12” 1,800/3,000 watt front right element provides intense heat for quick boiling or even pan searing. And finally, there's the center rear mounted 100 watt warming zone.
Available in stainless steel, this range is priced at $2,499.

2. KitchenAid SEG700ESS - 6.4 cu ft - $2,199
The next model on our list of slide in electric range reviews is the KitchenAid KSEG700ESS, which is another "hybrid" model that can either be installed as a slide-in or freestanding range. Full side panels allow the range to be placed at the end of a counter without appearing unfinished. This model offers a large 6.4 cubic foot oven cavity with convection bake, broil and roasting options.

This model features steam cleaning with KitchenAid's Aqua Lift Self Clean. Steam cleaning ovens are becoming more common and are more user friendly than self-cleaning, as they operate at much lower temperatures with less time and less odor. Two incandescent lights illuminate the oven's cavity and three oven racks allow for multi-level cooking.
The radiant heat full-width glass edged cooking surface configuration is made up of the left front 3,000 / 1,950 / 1,050 watt triple element, right front 3,200 watt power burner, left rear 1,300 watt and right rear 1,200 watt elements along with a center rear 100 watt warming zone. A commercially designed oven door towel bar handle showcases KitchenAid's styling, which is used throughout all of their kitchen appliances.

3. GE Profile S960SLSS - Double Oven, 6.6 cu ft - $2,899
GE is also in the game with their most popular double oven slide-in version. The GE Profile PS960SLSS features a full-width glass cooking surface with a left side bridge burner assembly that can be operated as singular controlled front 8”/ 5” and rear 8” burners or linked together forming the 2,000 watt bridge. The right side front element consists of a triple 12”/9”/6” burner for optional pan sizing and the right rear 6” element along with a center rear 6” warming zone completes the main top.
The upper oven sizes at 2.2 cubic feet and operates as a traditional oven would, just formatted smaller for quicker preheating and cooking smaller items and meals. The lower 4.4 cubic foot oven is large enough to take on the Thanksgiving Day turkey and larger meals. True European Convection is also included in the lower oven along with an oven meat probe for accurate food interior temperature readings. This eliminates the need to open the door (which loses heat) and check your meal with an external thermometer.
A programmable cook timer, kitchen timer, fast preheat option with audible signal and digital temperature display are all included from GE on this model. One roller rack with two positions in the upper oven, two self cleaning racks and six height positions in the lower makes ease of adjustments for all meals. What could be better than baking a chocolate souffle in the upper oven at a precise 338 degrees and a family size roast in the lower oven at 450 degrees, all within a standard 30” range footprint? It's hard to beat that. GE pricing is at $2,899 and is one of the most fully featured models on the market. It also comes in GE slate and black slate as well as black stainless steel.

LG also produces a great competitor worthy of our Top 5 list. The LG LSE4613ST is also a model that can be installed as a slide-in or freestanding range with full-depth dimensions which eliminate the need for rear filler strips or additional countertop in the rear.
