3 Quick Tips on Slide In Ranges

  • "Front control freestanding ranges" are a new option today. These "hybrid" units can be installed at the end of a countertop if needed since the sides are factory finished. They are technically considered "front control freestanding ranges" but they are interchangeable. They are often designed to be installed in the same space that a freestanding range with a backguard once was. Some of these "hybrid" models may not overlap your counters for a built-in look that keeps food from falling between the counter and your stove. True slide-ins will also need a "filler strip" of countertop material across the back to finish off the built-in look since they aren't as deep as the standard counter. All of the slide-ins on our list are hybrid front control freestanding ranges designed to easily replace a 30" freestanding range.

  • Consider stovetop element options. Many of the slide-ins on our list offer "bridge elements" that connect two elements to heat extra-large cookware, griddles, and oblong pots. Expandable elements are another feature to consider - these elements can be expanded from 6" to 9" and even up to 12" to accommodate different sizes of cookware. If you like to do a lot of high-heat cooking, consider the wattage as well. If you're more familiar with gas ranges, a 3,500W element equals about 12,000 BTUs. In general, all of these ranges have nicely featured stovetops and ovens, so don't worry about getting the most powerful stovetop unless you absolutely think you need it.

  • Check out convection ovens. There are two types of convection oven: fan convection and true convection. Fan convection incorporates a fan into the back of the oven to circulate the hot air better. You'll likely notice that your roasts are more evenly browned, and that multiple racks of cookies come out evenly done. True convection is the next step up, and incorporates a heating element with the fan. You can read more about convection here.

 

 

1. Frigidaire Professional FPEH3077RF - 6.1 cu ft - $2,449

The Frigidaire Professional FPEH3077RF front control freestanding electric range retails for $2,449 in stainless steel and has been updated with many new and improved user-friendly features, plus a professionally-inspired design that will look great in your kitchen.

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 8-pass bake and broil elements that heat evenly, which give you superb cooking results. An included temperature probe will display the food's interior temperature so it won't be over- or under-cooked. The oven 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" 1,800W elements that bridge together, transforming into the perfect heating arrangement for any oblong-styled cookware or a griddle. The expandable 9" to 12" 1,800W/3,000W element provides intense heat for quick boiling or even pan searing. And finally, there's the center rear 100W warming zone. 

 

Features:

  • PowerPlus Convection (true convection)

  • PowerPlus Temperature Probe

  • SpacePro Bridge Element

  • 9"/12" 1,800W/3,000W dual element

2. Bosch HEI8056U - 4.6 cu ft - $2,199

The next model on our list of slide in electric range reviews is the Bosch HEI8056U, which comes with a traditional slide-in feature that many people miss: cooktop edges that overlap the countertop. It has a smaller oven than is typical for many of today's ranges, but there's still plenty of room for baking and roasting. Its predecessor, the HEI8054UC, was a high-performer with many positive reviews, so we have a good feeling about this upgraded model. The minimalist design lends it a commercial feel, and Bosch is known for making integrated appliances that will sit as close to flush with your cabinetry as possible. 

There are five stovetop elements, including a 3,200W 9" power burner and a dual expandable 6"/9" element. The other elements are 6". If you're looking for extra-large 12" elements, bridgeable elements, or other features for handling large cookware, you won't find them on this range. Bosch has focused on designing useful, go-to features that meet high performance standards. 

The oven has true convection with convection conversion, and you have access to 11 cooking modes to make the most of it. These include specialty options like Proof Dough as well as a Fast Preheat option, Pizza, and more. Bosch offers a warming drawer under the oven rather than a storage drawer to help you juggle preparing multiple dishes for one meal. It prices at $2,199 in stainless steel or at $2,299 in Bosch's black stainless steel (model HEI8046U). 


 

Features:

  • True European Convection

  • 6"/1,400W to 9"/3,000W dual expandable element

  • Cooktop overlaps countertops for a seamless look and easier cleanup

  • Self cleaning oven

3. GE Profile PS960SLSS - Double oven, 6.6 cu ft - $2,909

GE is also in the game with their most popular double oven slide-in version. The GE Profile PS960SLSS prices at $2,909 in stainless steel and at $3,009 in slate or black stainless steel. It 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 2,000W bridge. There's also a triple 12"/9"/6" element and a central rear warming zone.

The upper oven sizes at 2.2 cubic feet and operates as a traditional oven would, but the smaller format allows for quicker preheating. 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 and check your meal with an external thermometer. 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.

Other great features like fast preheat, the ability to automatically have the vent hood turn on when you're cooking, and more make this slide in electric range a fully featured model with a lot to offer!

4. LG LSE4613ST - 6.3 cu ft - $1,899

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. This model is available in stainless steel at $1,899 and black stainless steel at $1,999. A stainless steel trim surrounds the main glass top cooking surface.

The stovetop includes a dual 6"/9" 1,400W/3,200W burner and a 9"/12" 1,700W/2,700W burner. Sitting between the two rear elements is a convenient 7" 100W warming zone for keeping any foods warm or simply heating up a dinner plate. The large 6.3 cubic foot Cobalt Blue oven is loaded with cooking modes such as convection bake, programmable favorites, proofing, keep warm, pizza and speed roast. ProBake true convection is ready to take your cooking results to the next level! 

LG uses a glass touch control panel rather than some traditional Mylar-coated panels found with many brands. This type of control does not require stabbing at the panel. A light touch with your finger is all that's needed. The professionally-inspired ProBake Convection and sleek design make this a great slide in range for your home!
