Electric ranges have not changed over the years as much as you would think. In fact, they are pretty similar. An electric range is still ceran glass over heating elements, but some of the features like a convection system, a warming drawer, and an added 5th burner make electric ranges worth considering.
We will review the best electric ranges for you to consider for freestanding and slide-in ranges. Keep in mind, this changes almost monthly with new products and rebates.Short on time? Get our free Electric Cooking Buying Guide
Most Popular Electric Ranges
Pricing updated for January 2018
Samsung NE59M4310SS - $499
It's very similar to the range you probably now own. However, Samsung has the 5th burner.
Whirlpool WFE525S0HS - $679
Whirlpool and Samsung offer a similar range of 5 burners with self-cleaning. Samsung has more refined aesthetics. Whirlpool is the builder favorite.
Samsung NE59J7630SS - $699
This range is aesthetically pleasing. Samsung offers convection (fan forced air for even cooking) and various burners for the various pots and pans. It also has a 20-minute steam self-cleaning cycle rather than the traditional 900 degrees and a 3-hour cycle.
KitchenAid is brand new and restyled to look more professional. It has flexible burners for almost any pan.
This is a true double oven range with the bottom oven being convection. You can cook dessert and the holiday bird with this oven.
Popular Electric Slide-In Ranges
Samsung NE58F9500SS - $1,619
Samsung dominates the electric slide-in range market with modern styling, convection, and a price far below its competitors.
Compared to Samsung, Bosch has high-end features, better rebates, and stellar kitchen packages.
The new Jenn-Air has a much larger oven capacity than the average by about 20% by placing the controls on the top and reducing the size of the bottom drawer. Have a big family? Then consider Jenn-Air.
Most Popular Induction Ranges
Induction, however, has changed the market for electric cooking. Induction cooking uses a magnetic heat, which excites the molecules in the metal pan to heat the food faster with an instant simmer response.
Induction is, in fact, faster than the hottest professional range and 30% more efficient. It's the most child safe as well.
Most higher-end ranges are now sold as induction ranges.

The KitchenAid induction is a double oven with convection which converts your recipes into convection recipes automatically.
JENN-AIR JIS1450DS - $3,099
