Slide-in ranges are the bleeding edge of kitchen appliances. With their up-front controls and low profiles, they fit well in any kitchen while adding an unparalleled layer of safety and ease-of-use to your experience. Choosing one can be difficult, however; that's why we've created a list of three of the best slide-in electric ranges of 2021. At 30 in. wide, each of them will fit into a standard oven cutout.
GE makes a variety of robust and feature-rich appliances, and the JS645SLSS is one of the best slide-in electric ranges the company makes, as well as one of the most budget-friendly. It has four glass ceramic elements, two of which are 3,100 W Power Boil elements that boil water 25% faster than GE's standard and adjust from 6 to 9 in. wide based on the size of your cookware. The 5.3 cu. ft. oven comes with LED lighting that shines into every corner of the oven, and dual-element baking with an upper and lower element for even, fast cooking. It has an exterior LED temperature display that displays the exact temperature whenever the oven is in use. The stainless steel knobs are sleek and robust. On top of that, GE offers a Perfect Fit Guarantee which means you can buy this range to replace an existing 30-in. range and not have to worry about the exact dimensions. Thanks to its fully finished sides, you can even place it anywhere in your kitchen.
The 6.3-cu. ft. LG LSE4613ST is versatile and feature-rich. It's large enough to handle up to a 24-lb. turkey with room to spare. LG ProBake Convection™ technology is inspired by professional ranges and heats your food from the back wall. The stovetop comes with LG's fastest-boiling UltraHeat™ elements, which carry a whopping 3,200 W of power and adjust the heating area to the size of your cookware for maximum efficiency. The front-tilt control knobs and glass touch controls are easy to use, and the included EasyClean® technology allows you to wipe the inside of the oven clean after 10 minutes of heating, without the need for harsh chemicals or smelly cleaners. There's even a hot surface indicator that lets you know when any surface on the stovetop is hot, regardless of whether the elements are actively running.
The Whirlpool WEE750H0HZ is the most spacious slide-in electric range on this list, with a whopping 6.4 cu. ft. of internal space. It has the most smart features among the ranges on this list, integrating with not only your smartphone, Google Assistant, and Amazon Alexa, but with a compatible Nest Learning Thermostat™ that can send you alerts if the oven is left on. It can even send maintenance notifications to your phone. Using Party Mode, you can remotely keep the oven in stay-warm mode to ensure the freshest, hottest food for your guests. On days when you aren't entertaining, you can use the true European convection oven's Scan-to-Cook technology to scan a frozen food's barcode to get customized cooking instructions. As a bonus, Frozen Bake™ technology automatically adjusts the cooking time of frozen food to negate the need for defrosting and preheating.
Are slide in ranges good?
Slide-in ranges allow an unobstructed view of your backsplash. Because they don't have bulky backboards, they offer more space for cooking on the stovetop, and the front-control knobs allow you to change the settings without having to reach over a hot surface.
