Space-saving double-oven ranges

Posted: Updated:

Remodeling your kitchen? One of the biggest challenges is deciding which cooking appliances to get. Choices among cooktops, ovens, and ranges have mushroomed in recent years. Consumer Reports tests more than 250 models to help you hone in on some great buys.

New ranges offer additional cooking options and can cost hundreds less than buying separate units—even 30-inch ranges. And more and more come with double ovens, with a large one on the bottom and a smaller one on top.

The 30-inch Frigidaire Symmetry Double Oven Model #FGEF308TNF has two same-sized ovens that can each handle a turkey. Testers were even able to fit a 26-pound turkey in each one! But getting the turkey out of the bottom oven is no easy task!

As for the stovetop, should you get gas or electric? Chefs and cooks love gas ranges, but both gas and electric do very well in Consumer Reports' tests.

If you've got your heart set on a double-oven range, you have more options with electric. 

Among the top-rated—that double-oven Frigidaire Symmetry Double Oven Model #FGEF308TNF for $1,800. Both of its ovens have convection settings for faster cooking. It also simmers superbly, and the smoothtop makes cleanup a breeze.

If you need a gas stove and are considering getting a dual-fuel range, Consumer Reports says the ones it tested don't offer much advantage.  However, Consumer Reports did find a great gas stove, a Frigidaire's Gallery for $775. It doesn't have a double oven, but it does have five burners and a convection oven.
