The Consumer Reports, Good Housekeeping and Top Ten Reviews websites publish reviews and their picks for the top electric ranges on the market. Top brands include LG, GE, Samsung, Frigidaire and Kenmore, as of 2015.
Consumer Reports names top electric ranges in five categories: smooth top, slide-in smooth top, smooth top double oven, induction and coil-top ranges. The site also notes trends in the overall electric range market and comments on the best types of ranges available. Also available on the site is a buying guide to help consumers make decisions about the right range for their lifestyle and budget. A paid subscription to the Consumer Reports website unlocks access to detailed ratings and test results for individual ranges.
Good Housekeeping's website rates electric ranges with standard letter grades. Users can browse detailed reviews of A-rated ranges, including pros and cons, prices and warranty information. Review information comes from the Good Housekeeping Research Institute, a dedicated laboratory for evaluating appliances and other home goods.

This detailed review places features and specifications, such as size, wattage, warranty information and self-cleaning capability, for each range side-by-side, allowing for easy comparison.
