[KBIS 2009 Review]
Samsung range cooker, FTQ387 is the new electric range with a large 5.9 ft³ of oven space, that allows you to cook large meals with greater ease. It comes with a beautiful, easy to clean, fast heating 5-burner ceramic cooktop, including a triple burner, a dual burner and a warming center. For incredible performance and cooking convenience, the electric range also includes a fast boil element, which can boil a pot of water 6 minutes faster than traditional 6″/9″ burners. The large oven offers some of the high end features normally found in more expensive ranges. This stainless steel Samsung range cooker comes with 8-pass hidden bake element, a 6-pass broil element and 3-fan true convection cooking system, called Surround Airvection, which combines a true convection oven with a multi-fan system to circulate heat evenly throughout the oven. The On/Off fan control maintains the ideal temperature. The oven is also easily cleaned with the help of energy efficient Samsung SteamQuick function. Just pour 10 ounces of tap water into the range oven, close the door and press the button. 20 minutes later, simply wipe the oven clean.
The 600 watt warming drawer with stainless handle has 3 temperature settings to keep meals ready. Other features of these 30″ wide electric ranges include Sabbath Mode, glass touch controls, 2-color LED display, multi position chrome oven racks and pyrolytic cleaning. Price for this Samsung electric range cooker is $1,300.
For those of you who can live without European 3-fan convection cooking, glass touch controls and a 2-color LED display, check the FTQ353 electric ranges, available in stainless steel for $1,000 and white and black for $900. Samsung.
