Induction Ranges

Induction, however, has changed the market for electric cooking. Induction is magnetic heat, which excites the molecules in the metal pan to heat the food faster with instant simmer response.

Induction is in fact faster than the hottest professional range and 30% more efficient for less venting. It's also the most child safe as well.

Most higher end ranges are now sold as induction. Below are the best considerations for freestanding (controls on the back) and slide-in (controls on the front) ranges in both induction and electric cooking.

Most Popular Electric Ranges

Pricing updated for May, 2016

Frigidaire FFEF3043LS - $629

frigidaire freestanding range FFEF3043LS

Builders seem to like this unit, because it is cheap. However, it is not self-cleaning. Frigidaire is one of the more reliable appliance brands. Limited quantities while supplies last.


Frigidaire FFEF3048LS - $559 after $40 rebates

It's very similar to the range you probably now own with 4 burners and stainless steel. This range is the most popular electric range sold.

Samsung NE59J7630SS - $749 after $75 rebates

samsung freestanding range NE59J7630SS

You will like this range, because it looks great. Samsung offers convection (fan forced air for even cooking) and various burners for the various pots in your possession. It also has a 20 minute steam self-cleaning cycle.

Frigidaire FGEF3058RF - $909

frigidaire freestanding range FGEF3058RF

The Frigidaire Gallery adds convection as well as a fifth burners and a much nicer exterior than their regular range.

KitchenAid KFEG500ESS - $1004

kitchenaid kfeg500ess freestanding range

KitchenAid is brand new and restyled to look more professional. It has flexible burners for almost any pan.

Most Popular Induction Ranges

Frigidaire FGIF3061NF - $1,574

Samsung NE597N0PBSR - $1,799 after $75 rebates

samsung induction range NE597N0PBSR

It’s been lean times for induction freestanding ranges, but the best value is Frigidaire and Samsung with good wattages at reasonable prices. They both have convection and a warming drawer.

Frigidaire has been available for a longer period of time, so it is more of a known commodity. Samsung has an incredibly flexible top and the world's only three fan convection system for optimum cooking.

(We have wattages of every cooktop and range in our Induction Buying Guide.)

Popular Electric Slide-In Ranges

Jenn-Air JES8850CAS - $1,999

Jenn-Air is a regular slide-in with convection and a warming drawer. It is also part of our best selling package.

Samsung NE58F9500SS - $1,399 after $75 rebates

samsung slide-in range NE58F9500SS

Samsung and Jenn-Air are very different. Samsung has better, more intuitive controls. Jenn-Air has a warming drawer to keep food for up to 2 hours versus just a storage for Samsung.

Popular Induction Slide-In Ranges
