What Brands of Electric Ranges Receive Good Reviews?


Brands such as LG, GE, Kenmore, Samsung and Frigidaire are typically highly rated by online reviewers and retail store customer reviews. As of 2015, LG, GE and Frigidaire models had the highest overall ratings from Best Buy and Lowe's customers.

Consumer Reports lists five different categories of electrical ranges, testing ranges within those categories and presenting their top choices for each. In their 2014 tests, two LG brand stoves were chosen for best smoothtop and smoothtop with double oven, with the GE Café CS980STSS as the best slide-in smoothtop range. Kenmore ranges won their other two categories: best induction and best coil top.

Yale Appliance lists brands by popularity and pricing, ranking Frigidaire as the value leader, with two popular stainless steel models both listed under $600 in January 2015. They also list Electrolux and Bosch as being popular sellers, though the latter is also built by Frigidaire. Both Electrolux and Frigidaire are also listed as best values in the induction oven category.

Both Lowe's and Best Buy websites listed the LG LRE3083ST as the highest rated electrical range brand as of January 2015, with a 4.7 rating on Lowe's after 170 reviews, and a 4.8 rating from Best Buy customers after 133 reviews. GE, Whirlpool and Frigidaire models also have favorable ratings of 4.5 or more on both retailer websites.

In 2011, Good Housekeeping listed two models, the Samsung FE-R300SX and the LG LDE3017ST, as their picks for best budget oven and best investment oven respectively. They also had similar picks for electrical induction ovens, with the Frigidaire FPCF3091LF for their best budget oven, and the GE Profile PHB925SPSS for those ignoring budget constraints.
