Signature Kitchen Suite (SKS) Slide-in Range (Reviews / Ratings / Prices)

January 19th, 2018 | 2 min. read

By Steve Sheinkopf


Now, this is truly different. The SKS all gas range has a shinier chromium look than stainless steel. It also has a few unique features like pure convection and Wi-Fi. 

However, at $3,599, it is a bit pricey and there may be better alternatives depending on how you cook.

In this article, we will detail each important feature and compare the SKS gas range to both slide-ins and professional ranges.

Who is SKS?

SKS, also known as Signature Kitchen Suite, is a new division of LG. LG is a South Korean, multi-national electronics company. Along with Samsung, LG has led the appliance industry into smart appliances and the connected home.

SKS is considered LG’s high-end line with their most innovative features. They offer a limited selection of cooking appliances but are attractive in terms of design and their features. Now that you know who SKS is, let’s take a look at our video.

Signature Kitchen Suite's All Gas Range


Best Features of the SKS Gas Ranges


SKS Package-2

If you were to look at a row of stainless gas ranges, SKS would stand out. Its stainless-steel finish is lighter with an almost a chromium finish. If you don’t like the look of stainless steel, the SKS gas range is a good alternative, especially in a kitchen package where all the appliances will match. Colors are limited to a few brands, including Black Stainless steel. Black Stainless is an oxide coating which can be peeled or scratched off. 

Pure Convection

Most electric ranges are pure convection meaning air is blown in from the back of the range. In every gas range, except LG, BlueStar, and SKS, the air rises from the bottom and then blown around by the fan.

SKS Range and Oven Interior

SKS Convection Oven 

Pure convection is technically better because it lessens taste crossover between the racks. During a recent BlueStar cooking demonstration in our Boston showroom, the chef baked garlic rolls and chocolate chip cookies simultaneously in the oven.

Other than LG, SKS is the only other slide-in range with pure convection.

Wi-Fi Connectivity

SKS, like Samsung and LG, have basic oven capabilities with Wi-Fi connectivity. What this means is that once you download their app that connects to your SKS range on your phone, you can adjust the temperature of your range and check the time remaining.

The Range's Shortcomings


SKS Range Stovetop-1

The top has just one power burner at 18,500 BTUs with the next being just 12,000 BTUS. You probably have a mixture of a 14,000 and a few 12,000 BTUs on a 10-year old stove.

Most other ranges will have two power burners. Even the base Whirlpool offers two power burners at 15,000 BTUs.

You can buy a pro range at around $3,999 - $4,149, like Jenn-Air and Thermador, with three or more power burners as well as a better simmer BTU output. Those brands also offer free dishwashers with their promotions.


Professional Ranges

Warming Drawer

SKS offers a warming drawer to keep foods warm for up to three hours. However, they do not offer a second baking oven like Jenn-Air, Electrolux, and GE.


Currently, the SKS all gas range is only available in 30 inches. Later on, they will have additional sizes such as 36 and 48 inches.


As we said previously, $3,599 is pricey for a gas slide-in range. It is at least $700-800 more than a comparable Samsung, KitchenAid, and LG range.

Its price is also in the league of a professional range.


If you are looking for a powerful range or a less expensive slide-in range, then this is not the range for you.

However, if you truly like to bake and/or want a different looking product, the SKS should definitely be considered.
