Top-rated electric range brands are Whirlpool, Kenmore, Frigidaire, KitchenAid, Samsung, LG and GE. Whirlpool, LG, GE and Kenmore are among the best. Whirlpool smooth-top ranges have a large capacity and convenient features with consistent temperatures, such as the Whirlpool WFE540H0A.
Induction ranges are about 25 percent faster at heating than smooth-tops. The induction Kenmore, model 95073, offers precise simmering and control, with superbly functioning self-cleaning. This Kenmore model has an approximate price of $1,530 as of 2015.
LG makes a smooth-top double oven that has strong features all around. GE has an expensive slide-in smooth-top that is well rounded like the LG but with subpar oven-cleaning.
