The Samsung NE58F9500SS is an excellent electric range and is stronger than some other Samsung ranges such as the NE59J7630SS. Once installed, this range is very aesthetically pleasing and blends into the kitchen so seamlessly that some inexperienced eyes may think it is a built-in unit. The range comes with solid cooking and baking abilities. We love its user-friendly guiding light controls which prevent the user from being overwhelmed by the control panel options.
Its dual convection technology makes baking a breeze. Buyers need to know that installing this range needs some specialty knowledge, and the typical user needs to hire a professional to install it. The NE58F9500SS is one of the best ovens in its price range. We give this range 4.5 out of 5 stars, and we believe it is the best range overall on our list.
Buyers who are interested in a bigger range may opt for the 6.4 cu. ft. Whirlpool WEE745H0FS. However, be prepared to pay up to $650 more compared to the NE58F9500SS, and say goodbye to the guiding lighting control system.
