Best High-End

This wiki has been updated 12 times since it was first published in October of 2017. A good stove is central to the cooking experience, but not every home or budget is suited to a high-end gas range, and in many cases, an electric cooktop is more than sufficient. There's a range of styles available, including freestanding and slide-in models, as well as different heating methods, like traditional coils, glass- or ceramic-covered radiant elements, and high-tech induction burners. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best electric stove on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

March 02, 2019:

The stove (or range) is the centerpiece of most kitchens, and just because you don't use gas doesn't mean that you can't enjoy a fantastic cooking experience. Ranges, overall, come in two main formats: freestanding and slide-in. Your kitchen's setup will determine which is right for you, but keep in mind that freestanding models are often significantly cheaper. When it comes to electric ranges (or stoves), there are two additional categories to keep track of: radiant and induction burners. Radiant burners heat up using traditional resistance-based elements, while induction uses a system of magnets to directly heat the pan you're cooking with. This does mean that you'll need magnetic pans to use an induction stove (or range, whatever you want to call it). And as they're somewhat new contenders in home kitchens, not all induction units are up to snuff in terms of reliability. As is often the case with GE appliances, the Profile actually is, and is as attractive as it is functional. In fact, it's even relatively inexpensive for its class. The Frigidaire induction model is another high-end unit at a reasonable price. In the world of radiant cooktops, the LG is commonly recommended by experts. The GE Freestanding, as well as the Frigidaire 540, are particularly effective options, and they're considerably affordable, in light of their high quality. The Whirlpool and Samsung occupy the mid range, while the Electrolux and Imperial are both very high-end.
