Induction ranges

Posted by Angel51 (My Page) on

I am planning to purchase an induction range for my remodeled kitchen. I have looked at several. I like the 2 ovens in the Whirlpool, but like the layout of the cooking areas in the Samsung better. Does anyone have any experience with induction ranges? I'd like your opinion

RE: Induction ranges

There are several recent threads here on this very topic. While you are waiting for other responses, I 'd suggest you try going out to your preferred search engine to Google, Bing, etc and try a search string like this: "gardenweb + induction + range." Also try "gardenweb + induction + whirlpool + double oven + range."

You also might want to try the same kind of search for the "cookware" site although I not sure I recall any threads that discussed the Whirlpool double oven there,

Now that you've got a reply post in this thread, you may get more responses here.

RE: Induction ranges

There is a lot of GWebbers who like the Bosch.
Search for reviews on your choices but realize there are always good and bad reviews for each product.
Welcome to the amazing world of induction!

RE: Induction ranges


I don't know of anyone on this forum who has a Bosch induction range yet.

Bosch only makes a slide in which will be much more expensive than the Samsung or Whirlpool freestanding ranges you're considering.

RE: Induction ranges

Actually, several posters have the new Bosch slide-in and, apparently, the burner layout is identical or nearly identical to the 30" Bosch 500 or 800 cooktop. I think that a2gemini may have overlooked the "range" in the OP and was thinking of Bosch cooktops which do indeed have something of a fan base here.

RE: Induction ranges $2000 budget

The bosch range is way out of my budget. Any feedback on GE, whirlpool, samsung or frigidairs?

RE: Induction ranges

If you get Whirlpool, be sure to get the one with 2 ovens as it is the only one that does a real self clean. The Whirlpools with only one oven do this low temperature steam cleaning thing which according to reviews isn't very effective. People who have the double oven Whirlpool seem to like it. The other 3 brands you mention get good reviews, but I would shy away from Samsung in general because parts and service can be a pain to get if you need them.

RE: Induction ranges

I have the Bosch Benchmark induction range. It is a slide in and has a warming drawer. We like it, although it did take time to get used to induction. We did also order a 2nd rack which is yet to be delivered almost 4 months after the range was received.

RE: Induction ranges

I have the GE PHB920 freestanding range. It's only been a little over a month but so far I am happy with my choice.

Once I internalized the importance of mise en place cooking on induction has been a real pleasure. The induction hobs heat a skillet so fast I can no longer finish chopping while heating the pan.

One of the reasons I chose the GE over the Elux was the temp probe in the oven. It is a very useful feature.

As JWVideo stated, there are several recent threads about choosing induction ranges. You can find some pretty detailed info about the current model GE, Elux and Kenmore for sure, and a little on Samsung in the same price range.
