Things We Love:

This 36-inch range from SMEG provides a truly exceptional cooking experience at an affordable price. We love the combination of the gas range top with the electric oven, allowing for precise temperature control of both sections. This range features 5 burners, including a double inset super burner that reaches 18,000 BTUs for serious cooking. The cast iron grill grates provide a continuous cooking surface, so you can move pans around without removing them from the heat. The gas safety valves have automatic electronic ignition, making this range safer for home use, which we love. The knobs on this range really show off the Victoria aesthetic that is unique to SMEG and set this range apart from other similar models. We also like that this unit comes set for natural gas, but includes a propane conversion kit, so making a change in gas types does not require a new model.

The 4.4 Cu. Ft. oven on this range has 8 different cooking modes, including a rotisserie mode, for a variety of cooking options. We love that this oven features true European convection for faster cooking times, as well as convection broil. This oven has 2 halogen lights that really show off the food in the oven while cooking and the 4 different rack levels allow for larger or shallower foods to be positioned appropriately. The electronic clock with timer on the front of the range means you can set your cook time and the alarm will alert you when the food is done cooking. The "Ever-Clean" interior and removable glass door make it easy to clean, another feature we appreciate. The air cooled over door prevents the range from overheating, another safety feature we like that sets this unit apart. We also like that this range features a full-width storage drawer underneath the oven where you can keep the extra racks, rotisserie kit and wok ring that come with this range.

Things To Consider:

This ranges offers a distinctive styling that may not work in all homes, if you are looking for a more generic range you may want to consider another unit.
