A Good Housekeeping review of non-induction electric ranges ranked the top eight smooth-top ranges from Samsung, Kenmore, Kitchen Aid, Frigidaire, LG. The reviews also included Electrolux and General Electric, and among these, only the Samsung garnered an "A" rating, while the others earned "A minus" reviews.
The Samsung Slide-In Electric Range features five rangetop zones, including a center warming zone. The electronic control panel blanks itself when the range is not in use, a feature that Good Housekeeping lauded for keeping the kitchen sleek-looking. A gamut of cooking tasks performed on the stove proved excellent performance from the Samsung model.
