The Best 30-Inch Induction Ranges

So, you like induction cooking for its quick boiling, low simmering, easy cleanup, and child safety features.

Now the question is which induction range is the best.

Of course, like every other appliance, there is not one best induction range for everyone.

I could say Miele is the best, for example, but not if you want a double oven, a different finish than stainless, and you don't want to spend over $9,000.

That's why we've listed the seven best induction ranges to consider based on features, real service numbers, and availability.

Let's start there (I will include a Q&A section at the end of the article as well).

The 7 Best 30-Inch Induction Ranges for 2024

Best Overall: Miele HR 1622-3 I CTS

Miele is the best all-around range from the cooktop to the oven.

Best Features of a Miele Induction Range


The stovetop is by far the most powerful, with three burners over 3,000 watts, two at 3,850 and one at 3,100, with a smaller burner at 2,300.

Twin Convection

With twin convection, Miele's range offers precision and control, ensuring that your dishes come out perfectly cooked every time.


The racks in this induction range are built to last, even during the self-cleaning cycle that heats up to 900 degrees.

M Touch Controls


The MasterChef guided cooking system is one of the best oven controls you can buy in any cooking product.

You simply pick the type of food, the weight, and how you like it cooked, and the oven calculates time and temperature automatically.

The MasterChef guided cooking system has 15 different cooking modes covering any recipe you could consider. You can also choose 100 different preprogrammed recipes.

Miele is also the only oven with Steam Assist. Steam is a necessary ingredient for baking bread. There are 15 different automatic settings just for bread.

Want to cook California Sourdough? Just hit a button, and you're done. That's the beauty of Miele. They simplify everything.

Pro Tip: To utilize the steam function, a water line must be connected to your stove.

Smart Functionality

Almost every brand has smart functionality. Miele is the best for connection, at least in our showroom.

Smart technology will allow you to control the oven through your smartphone or tablet.

Miele doesn't have a camera like LG's or GE Profile's induction ranges to see your food on your phone, but it does have the standard smart features.

Wireless Probe

This is a great idea allowing you to place the probe on the thickest part of the meat for better temperature control.

While the wireless probe is a good idea, there is a more impressive accessory that you should consider: The MEATER.

You can use the MEATER temperature probe indoors and outdoors. The algorithm calculates the ideal time for cooking meat, including resting time out of the oven.

You set that steak for medium rare, and the MEATER will calculate it.

Sorry if I am gushing, but it's awesome.

Miele Strengths

Miele has the most powerful cooktop, the best oven, and controls. You can cook better and more creatively with a Miele.

Miele Drawbacks

The oven size is 4.59 Cubic feet, so it's one of the smallest on this list. The largest single oven is 6.3 cubic feet.

In addition, Miele's induction stovetop does not have a bridge element for a griddle or odd-shaped dish.

At $9,299, the price is much higher than the other ranges on this list. If like the Miele, you can buy their HR 1422 3I without the steam or M –Touch functionality at $6,999.

Lastly, Miele does not offer colors or knob accessories.

Pro tip: Wait for rebates if you can.

Best Convection System: Wolf IR30450/S/T

Wolf is part of Sub-Zero, a family-owned and American company.

Best Features of a Wolf Induction Range


Wolf's burner output is decent, with the ability to boost to 3,700 watts on two burners, along with a bridge element on the right side for a griddle or odd-shaped pan.

The digital controls on the surface are kind of cool as well.



The oven is 5.1 cubic but offers its unique VertiCross convection system using blowers instead of fans for more even heat than typical fan-forced convection system.

Wolf Gourmet

It's similar to the Miele's MasterChef guided cooking system.

The Gourmet guided cooking system has 50 recipes but also adds the proper rack position as well as time and temperature.

However, Wolf does not have steam functionality. Their probe is attached, not wireless.

Wolf Strengths

From the top, Wolf is a great overall company and has a mix of features in their induction range.

Additionally, they probably have the best convection oven you can buy.

Wolf Weaknesses

It doesn't have the steam functionality of the Miele. Then again, only Miele has Steam functionality.

Highest Output: LG Studio LSIS6338F

LG is probably the top mass-market appliance manufacturer. They manufacture most of their key components for a generally more reliable appliance.

They also had the best availability from 2020-2023.

Best Features of a LG Studio Induction Range


The LG Studio induction range has 4,200, 3,200, two- 1,800, and two 100-watt burners. A 4,300-watt output is the highest wattage in the industry, so it will cook quickly.


The oven is amongst the largest at 6.3 cubic feet.

In fact, 6.3 is bigger than most 36-inch induction range ovens.

I could mention other modes like the Air Fry mode, but we haven't been able to fry anything from any manufacturer in any of these modes.

In addition, Air Sous Vide is a feature, but it involves a two-hour cooking cycle, after which you'll need to apply a finishing method to achieve the desired texture.



You can knock twice to see through or darken the window.

Wi-Fi Enabled

As many people have mentioned, Wi-Fi connectivity is not a key feature. However, you can see your food cooking through an app on your phone.

I can see my daughter's bacon burning right on my phone. Cool.


The other reason to buy LG is for reliability.

They were the most reliable brand sold at Yale last year, with a 4.4% service rate, and they were the most reliable induction brand as well.

LG Studio Strengths

They have a good oven size and excellent output on their power burner.

If you want to boil quickly, 4,200 watts will get it done.

You can also save money by opting for a package deal that includes other LG appliances.

LG Studio Weaknesses

This range doesn't have a bridge element. The other three burners are underpowered, with two at 1,800 watts and one warmer at 100 watts.

Best Double Oven: Café Appliances CHS950P4MW2

Best Features of a Café Appliances Induction Range

Largest Oven Capacity

Café Appliances double oven has the most capacity at 6.7 cubic feet split between two ovens, 2.4 cubic in the upper and 4.3 cubic in the lower oven.


Café Appliances has a decent output on the top with a max burner of 3,700 watts. You even have a warmer of 100 watts as a fifth burner.

The Café has the bridge burner on the left side as well.

Wi-Fi Enabled

Besides the advantages of a double oven, Café Appliances is a smart range like LG. Their parent company, Haier, has invested in smart technology.

They are always adding modes as well.

Last year, thousands of existing GE and Café customers found a new Turkey Mode button on their ranges with a "Gobble Gobble" end-of-cycle signal.

Café Finishes


Café Appliances are also different. You have several different finishes like black, white, and stainless, but you can also accessorize with six different handle styles.

Café Appliances Strengths

With its smart technology, double oven, and stylish design options, the Café Appliances CHS950P4MW2 is a great choice if you want both form and function in your induction range.

Café Appliances Weaknesses

The drawback to Café's double oven is the main oven sits on the floor. You will have to stoop for that turkey.

Once again, you have one powerful burner at 3,700 watts; then it's two sized at 2,500, one at 1,800, and then a warmer at 100 watts.

Honorable Mention: You can buy Café in the regular single oven, the CHS900P2MS1.

Most Popular: Bosch Benchmark HIIP057U

Bosch is the best looking with their industrial look and clean European lines.

You can package Bosch well with other appliances for a good look in your kitchen.

Best Features of a Bosch Induction Range

Bosch Induction Range Reliability


Bosch was the most reliable induction range for years.

It's important to know half of Bosch's induction ranges are made by SMEG of Italy.

This range is made by Bosch in North Carolina. For a full explanation, you can read this article on the differences between Bosch induction ranges.

Still, Bosch is below the average of 11.7% for induction as a category.

Bosch is also three of the top four most reliable induction cooktops.


From a specification standpoint, Bosch has an excellent output at 3,700, two at 3,600, and a 2,200-watt burner. You have the bridge element on the left side of the range.

Warming Drawer

Warming drawers are a great convenience. You can keep your dinner warm for up to three hours. It's especially convenient if you cook and your family eats at different times.

Bosch Strengths

Great cooktop for power and the bridge element. You will learn to love the warming drawer. It won't shrivel your food like a microwave.

Bosch Weaknesses

The oven size of the Bosch Benchmark HIIP057U, at 4.6 cubic feet, may not be the largest in the industry, but its reliability and other features make up for it.

A Word of Caution: Bosch's "Pro" 30 and 36-inch units are not made by Bosch but are sourced from SMEG.

Most Popular: GE Profile PHS930YPFS

If you like Café but don't want the color, this GE Profile induction range may be a good consideration.

The GE Profile range is popular because it was one of the first brands to offer induction.

I sold the GE induction cooktops back in 1986.

Best Features of a GE Profile Induction Range



You have the same output as the Café with one burner at 3,700 watts, two 2,500-watt burners, and one burner at 1,800 watts with a 100-degree warmer.

Oven Size

The convection oven averages 5.3 cubic feet, whereas LG and Samsung are larger at 6.3 cubic feet.

Wi-Fi-Enabled Range

The GE Profile range is a smart range, just like the Café Appliances range, as it comes with their SmartHQ app that offers the same functionality.

With the app, you can remotely monitor your oven, preheat it, and receive alerts when your meals are ready.

You can also use voice commands to control your oven through Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.

The app also provides access to more than 5,000 recipes that you can download and use with your range.

GE Profile Strengths

GE Profile stands out for its impressive burners, oven, and customer service.

With the industry's largest service department, GE is an excellent choice if you're purchasing from a store without service.

GE Profile Weaknesses

It's decent but lacks the features of the better ranges.

Least Expensive: Samsung NE63B8211SS

6.3 cu. ft. Smart Rapid Heat Induction Slide-in Range in Stainless Steel


Dimensions: 29 15/16" W, 28 11/16" D, 36" H | ADA Compliant: Yes| Number of Burners: 4 | Bridge Element: No | Sous Vide: No | Oven Capacity: 6.3 Cu. Ft. | Convection: Yes | Self-Cleaning: Yes |  Wi-Fi: Yes

We don't sell Samsung, so I can't attest to their reliability anymore.

Still, you must be careful with Samsung service.

They are now the most popular brand but lack a service department.

Buy it from the unlikely dealer who services what they sell, or be prepared to wait.

I don't mean to pick on Samsung, but the same goes for most brands. You are probably on your own, even with that extended warranty.

Best Features of a Samsung Induction Range


This Samsung range is the lowest at 2,400 watts, two 1,800-watt burners, and 1,200 watts.


The oven is decent at 6.3 cubic feet. This model does not have convection, but you can buy better models for $500-$1,000 more.

Samsung Strengths

This unit is inexpensive. Builders and house flippers can say they have an induction stove. The range does have a large oven.

Samsung Weaknesses

No bridge burner. I don't think you will have fast heating with the small burners. Service is an issue.

Potential Drawbacks of Buying an Induction Range


Nobody talks about reliability. I must have read every article about induction ranges.

Every article focuses on features and then sends you a link to buy it for their commission.

Then again, almost nobody has a service department. We have a service department of 35 technicians - and it's still growing. 


It's not a problem with disposers, hoods, and, to a certain degree, washing machines.

Even induction cooktops are reliable.

But induction ranges are another story. They are one of the most serviced appliances you can buy.

Have a look:

Induction Range Reliability for 2024

The following service rates are based on a minimum of 60 products sold and a total sample of over 700 products within 12 months.

  Service Rate
LG 5.2%
Bosch 8.8%
Café Appliances 10.7%
GE Profile 10.8%
Fisher & Paykel 14.4%
Bosch Benchmark 14.7%
Beko 21%
Grand Total 11.7%

The average service rate for induction ranges is higher at 11.7% compared to the appliance average of 8.3%.

However, the problems are mostly electrical and not from the unit itself.

Induction ranges, unlike standard electric ranges and induction cooktops, max out the amperage in the circuit.

This leaves them vulnerable to surges and voltage spikes.

Two of the top problems for induction ranges are tripping breakers and having no power on the stovetop.

Ensure that your electrical system meets the necessary requirements and has sufficient power before purchasing an induction range.

Pro Tip: I spoke to our staff electrician. He said to buy a "smoother" device that monitors current and prevents voltage spikes.

Reliability is a huge concern because parts are available at worse rates than appliances.

That is if you can find a qualified technician to fix your appliances.

Many of these repairs are minor. However, you will most likely need service on your new induction range within five years.

That's the first problem. Here is the second:


As induction has grown, especially with the bad publicity of gas cooking, the availability is almost as bad as the supply shortages of 2020-2021.

Maybe worse.

So be prepared to wait for many brands, from one to three months at minimum.
