Review Of The Oven Model: NE58H9970WS

The technology of induction cooking has become increasingly popular recently. Induction cooking uses magnets to generate heat directly in your cookware rather than from your cooktop. This creates more accuracy and faster control of desired cooking temperatures. Many induction cooktops are available on the market, and in this article we will review the features of one of the most popular — the Samsung ne58h9970ws — to see how it stacks up against three competitors.

What Is the NE58H9970WS Oven?

The ne58h9970ws is a model of induction range manufactured by the Samsung company, a Korean-based business that has been in operation since the 1930s. Samsung has been a leader in induction cooking innovation, and the ne58h9970ws is no exception.

When using induction cooking, the cooktop uses magnetic forces to excite the molecules in your cookware itself. That means the pan (instead of the cooktop) cooks the food. This means you can bring a boil down to a simmer and vice versa much faster than other cooktop options, and it is much safer.

An induction cooktop provides a more precise control and speed of the temperatures you desire. It’s also safer because no heat is being directly generated on the cooktop. If you move a pan, the cooktop will be cool to the touch with your bare hand, while it would burn if you touched a standard electric or gas cooktop which holds residual heat for quite a while after cooking. The easier-to-clean induction cooktop is safer because it only activates when it senses metal, so you don’t have to worry much about accidental burns.

Virtual Flame

This range also features Samsung’s “Virtual Flame” system  — distinctive blue LED lights that reflect against cookware to imitate the appearance of gas flames and to provide a visual reminder that the cooktop is in use.

Aside from its innovative induction cooking surface, the ne58h9970ws features a dual-fan, twin-zone convection oven that Samsung named “Flex Duo” technology. The range also includes a touchscreen interface and front-mounted knobs.

Oven

The most impressive features of the ne58h9970ws is that Flex Duo technology convection oven. The technology allows the user to slide in a special divider that effectively splits the oven cavity into two separate baking zones. The partition slips into the fifth oven rack position from the bottom. The oven will automatically detect when you insert the partition and enable you to choose distinct cooking modes, including separate temperatures for both the upper and lower cavities.

The Samsung ne58h9970ws is pleasing aesthetically with an abundance of sleek lines, sharp angles, a stylish stainless-steel exterior and a black, ceramic cooktop. This range certainly would be an upgrade over almost any range it replaces and undoubtedly would increase the visual appeal of almost any kitchen.

Another feature that enhances this appliance’s visual appeal and functionality is a large, touchscreen panel that Samsung named “Guiding Light Controls.” This panel is a futuristic-looking, glossy-black rectangle on the oven’s front face. It is designed to only display options related to what is cooking.

Product Specs

The Samsung ne589970ws features a 31-inch ceramic induction cooktop with four cooking positions we will refer to by the traditional term of “burners.” One “burner” is 11 inches in diameter, two are 7 inches and one is 6 inches. All are rated between 1,800 and 2,300 watts of power.
The oven features a dual-oven divider and two convection fans. The bake element is hidden and is rated at 3,000 watts while the element used for broiling is rated at a powerful 3,800 watts. The dimensions of the range are: 29 13/16″ wide, 26 5/16″ deep, and 37 1/8″ tall. Overall, this Samsun unit’s weight is 231 pounds.

Pricing

The Samsung ne58h9970ws costs approximately $3,000, which we admit is fairly high-priced for a home range. However, when you consider all the top-end features this appliance delivers, then the price tag certainly makes sense. Think of it like this: This range is similar to a luxury automobile in that its price may be too high for some people, but it may be seen as a worthy investment by some others who can and are willing to pay for such a top-of-the-line product.

The oven features a 4.6-cubic-foot capacity, single convection fan, self-cleaning mode, separate warming drawer, full-extension telescopic rack and a built-in meat probe.

The Bosch 800 HEI805 is a slide-in, which means it is meant to fit in a space between countertops. This unit will fit any standard 30-inch space. However, it does not have finished sides and the controls are located on the front instead of the back, which is typical of most freestanding ranges. The cooktop on most slide-in models is made to overlap the cabinet space slightly for a customized look. Otherwise, freestanding ranges and slide-in ranges are interchangeable as one can be replaced with the other.

This Bosch model comes at a hefty expense of around $3,100, but that really is not much of a surprise considering its features.

Conclusion

The Samsung ne58h9970ws is a top-of-the line induction range that offers industry-best functionality and outstanding performance. The ne58h9970ws has several innovative features including a dual convection oven, power cooktop heating elements, large 31-inch ceramic cooktop surface, and touch screen user interface. The oven features the innovative Flex Duo technology, allowing cooks to divide the oven into two separate cooking compartments each with its own different temperature control.

Most importantly, this range is an induction cooktop and will appeal to consumers looking for the newest in innovative cooking technology. Because induction cooking uses magnetic forces to excite the particles in cookware, rather than an electric or gas burner, it is safer. Not only that, but it heats up much more quickly than traditional stovetops and you have more precise control over your temperatures. If you needed more to sell you, then there’s this: cleanup is a breeze because the cooktop cools quickly before spills have a change to cook and harden on the surface. Keep in mind that your cookware must be compatible with induction cooking. Overall, the Samsung ne58h9970ws is a high-quality range, and priced accordingly. You pay for the value that Samsung definitely delivers.
