Best Electric/Induction Range Deals 2014 (Reviews/Ratings/Prices)

Electric ranges have really changed over the last few years with the introduction of induction technology.

Induction is magnetic heat, which excites the molecules in the metal pan to heat the food faster and more efficiently (for more information read our Induction Buyers Guide). Induction is in fact faster than the hottest professional range and 30% more efficient for less venting.

As induction has lowered in price over the years, consumers have still purchased electric at the less expensive prices and induction instead of electric at the more premium product.

As I look at what is now popular at Yale, it matches that trend. We analyzed regular electric and induction ranges as well as slidein ranges at the bottom.

Frigidaire is the value leader, especially in stainless. Coincidentally, they are one of the least repaired brands in the store. They have two inexpensive, 4-burner, smoothtop ranges. I like smooth versus coils because it's easier to clean.

Bosch is built by Frigidaire, but is a better looking range with better package rebates. The HES7052 is a Bosch-built European convection range (air blown in from the back for better cooking) and a warming drawer underneath.

I like the Electrolux for their incredibly easy-to-use controls with automatic settings for just about anything (like Perfect Turkey). 

Most Popular Induction Ranges

KitchenAid KIRS608BSS

Frigidaire FGIF3061NF

Electrolux EI30IF40LS

All three are self-cleaning and convection with warming drawers. All three are reliable. $1,499 is inexpensive for an induction range. In 1995, induction cooktops were $4,000 and induction technology has improved over the years.

There is a difference in wattages. Electrolux is the most powerful at 4,000 watts, with KitchenAid at 3,700 on their most powerful burner. We have wattages of every cooktop and range in our Induction Buying Guide.

I like the controls on Electrolux the best on any range. As I said, they are simple to use. KitchenAid has the largest oven at 6.2 cu. ft., so it really depends on what you prefer.

Popular Slide-In Ranges

Frigidaire, Jenn-Air and Electrolux are very different ranges. Jenn-Air is a regular slide-in with convection and a warming drawer. It is also part of our best selling package. Frigidaire is a hybrid induction with two induction burners and three regular electric burners. Electrolux is full induction with really great control panel and two ovens.
