Frigidaire Electric Range Review
I have died and gone to Heaven! I splurged on this new Frigidaire Range because it was on sale and almost half price! I have had the same old style electric range for over 40 years. My last one was 10 years old and still worked OK. It had the round burners that plugged in and a drip pan that was impossible to keep clean. It was self cleaning and I knew exactly how it cooked but it was time for a new one.
Now this new one is completely different! I have never cooked on a ceramic cooktop and I love it! It has five burners! There are three burners in the back and two burners in the front. However, the two burners in the front have 5 different sizes. Here is what I am talking about.
A burner for a small pan.
Or turn it to heat for a medium pan.
Or the same burner will even heat a large pan!
The burner to the left does the same thing only for two size pans.
I love the feature that a light on the control panel stays on even when the
burners are off indicating the top is still hot. The instructions tell you
before you use it for the first time, use a ceramic cleaning product on the
ceramic top. This keeps the food from sticking permanently to the top.
I bought a kit that came with a pad to apply it, a scraper and the liquid cleaner.
It reminds me of car wax as it puts a coating on the ceramic top.
Other features I love is that the oven has three shelves and is a
self cleaning oven. I’m not done yet! This is also a convection oven!
A convection oven is totally new to me. It is supposed to cook your
food quicker and more evenly as it blows the hot air with a fan.
I am excited to try this feature but nervous my recipes may not turn
out right until I figure it out. Time will tell and so will the recipes I post!
What are the cons? So far the only things I have to be careful with is not to scratch the ceramic top. As my regular followers know, I use cast iron pans a lot. The instructions stated I can use cast iron pans as long as I keep the top coated with a protective wax like product for ceramic tops and don’t slide the pans across the top. The other con I have is that I like to do canning. The instructions stated you can do canning on this cooktop as long as you do not put more than 50 pounds on the ceramic top.
I can work around both of these cons without too much inconvenience and I am thrilled to have this Frigidaire Electric Range!
