LG Electronics has expanded its cooking appliance portfolio with its first double oven range for the U.S. market. This freestanding electric range blends high-performance with a striking, stylish design. With a multitude of advanced features and functionality, including a new infrared broiling system, this new range makes the cooking experience more enjoyable and helps home chefs make something better in their kitchen. Culinary enthusiasts and home chefs will welcome the added convenience of being able to prepare two meals at once or tackle the biggest holiday menu challenges. With 2 separate ovens, it is possible to cook different dishes at different temperatures, all at the same time. With a total capacity of 6.7 cubic feet, this range provides the necessary room for an entire holiday dinner.
The upper oven measures 6 inches – the tallest in the industry – allowing users to bake and broil tall items like a rack of lamb in the top oven without having to preheat the larger lower oven. As most people use the top oven when they cook, this extra height allows for easier access. Even with two separate ovens, the new LG range fits within the standard footprint, so no kitchen modifications are needed. LG double oven range combines outstanding results with the convenience of dual ovens, new performance options, faster pre-heat times and friendlier controls. This winning combination of intuitive design and state-of-the-art features gives home chefs something better in the kitchen and makes this range ideal for anyone who loves to cook and entertain.
Unique to this model is the LG InfraGrill system, the company first infrared heating element that enables the oven to reach broil temperature more quickly and reduces cooking time by 30% for popular items like hamburgers and chicken breasts. Infrared cooking, the same technology often found in premium outdoor grills, allows for juicy cooking results. LG also makes it easier to achieve great cooking results with the True Convection system that incorporates the ideal temperature and airflow needed for faster preheating and more precise cooking.
Other noteworthy features include LG attractive and intuitive SmoothTouch Controls that are easy to use and effortless to wipe clean. 2 dual cooktop elements can easily accommodate a variety of different sized cookware, including an extra-large sauté pan, providing greater overall cooking flexibility. Users will also enjoy the award-winning design that has become the hallmark of LG appliances. With stainless steel touchpoints, sleek controls and a brilliant blue interior, this range helps make any kitchen look its best.
Available at retailers now, just in time for holiday entertaining, model LDE3017S has suggested retail prices of $1,700 in stainless steel and $1,600 in smooth black and white finishes. The double oven joins LG broad portfolio of cooking appliances including induction, radiant and gas cooktops, electric and gas ranges, built-in wall ovens and microwave ovens.
