Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by amateurfoodie Used my niece's range and was immediately sold on it
Every Thanksgiving, weekend, the Friday after Thanksgiving I cook a spaghetti dinner for the entire family, usually around 25 people. This year used my niece's new kitchen and she had all new appliances. Her Samsung electric range had a feature on it called 'Fast Boil'. When trying to heat 20 quarts of water to cook about 4 ponds of spaghetti, it always to almost 45 minutes to get it up to a boil using a gas range. With this fast boil feature, in 10-15 minutes, the stock pot was boiling. I was sold on this and when I get home from Thanksgiving, I went out an bought a similar range. Our new one has a double oven feature, fast boil, warming drawer and warning center. Many, many features. My wife and I just love it. If I had only one complaint, it would be that the ceramic glass cooktop scratches too easily. The first time we put a saute pan on it, there was a piece of bunt food on the bottom. It scratched the top before we knew what happened. Still a great range.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jensen41 Called for service after the first use.
We used the convection cooking the first day and it already didn't work properly. The manual and website state that the oven will convert your recipe to the confected temperature. For example you enter 400 degrees and the oven will display approximately 375 degrees once the oven heats up. The service company came and were told by Samsung tech support that the stove doesn't do this. So after 1 week of getting all new Samsung appliances, the stove doesn't work properly. We are therefore unsure of exactly what temperature it's really cooking at. Very disappointing so far!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChillyWI Perfect Range for us
We have owned this range for a little over a year, and it's been the best range ever due to all the cool features. We mostly leave the Flex Duo divider in since we usually bake smaller items in the upper oven, and it heats up so fast when you just use that space. We use the whole oven for baking multiple cookie sheets or loaves of bread, and we've also baked in both ovens at different temps with the divider. Every iteration works great, and we have the double oven we wanted for convenience without having to kneel to get stuff out of the lower oven. The warming drawer we mostly use for storing cookie sheets, but it's nice when we have guests to keep multiple things warm....so is the warming burner on the cooktop when adding previously sautéed ingredients to a hot pan.
The cooktop is really responsive and has great simmering as well as searing temps. The trick I use when I need to lower temp quickly is move the pot halfway off the burner for 30 seconds and I can quickly go from boil to simmer. Moving to a higher temp is very quick, and the sizzle increases immediately in the pan if you go from medium to medium high. We both grew up with gas cooktops, but the electric ceramic is soooo much easier to clean. We considered induction, but we received new pots in the last couple years and did not want to replace them again....maybe next stove.
This is the best setup for double ovens without sacrificing a large single oven, and we love it. The steam clean works really well in the oven....I just rub a little dish soap on any grease spots and use a scrub daddy when the cycle is over to remove them. We've also used the regular self clean, and that's great, but lengthy and not necessary for most of the regular mess we create. Awesome range, Samsung.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tigers25 Unbelievable Oven!!
I have owned this oven for 3 years now and have been extremely pleased!! It cooks extremely even, quick, and is very energy efficient. I have owned other convection ovens and this oven by far surpasses any oven I have ever owned. The buttons are still like new after 3 years of heavy usage and the stove top, with proper maintenance and cleaning, has held up to excessive usage. The oven divider and fast boil option were the main reasons I went with this oven. This is a quality oven!!! I'm so happy with my purchase!!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by lclark Worst oven I've ever owned!
The divider of this oven constantly causes it to turn off, to the point that sometimes it need not even be disturbed and I can be off doing laundry or taking a shower, only to return to find the oven has been off for an unknown period of time and my food basically raw just in time for dinner! If you walk by the oven causing any movement to the floor (which is tile, so pretty hard to do!), it often turns off. And if you open the oven with the divider inside, it turns off every single solitary time. So we basically had to remove the divider completely making this an ordinary oven without the luxury of two separate compartments w/ differing heat seatings - which was essentially the only reason I purchased this model. Plus I find that it is even less desirable than a regular oven in that without the divider, food cooks at completely different temperature settings than with it, so it is difficult to estimate proper timing to ensure that food is cooked thoroughly - it is a toss up every time that I bake or roast as to when the food will be cooked properly. I have nothing positive to say about this oven as these issues of course did not present themselves until after the standard 12 month warranty was no longer effective and in hindsight, I wish I had purchased something else. I have all Samsung appliances and find the "stainless" steel to be anything but - the typical stainless steel cleaners do not work well, and I have tried MANY different types. There are even some areas of rusting and I am very diligent about wiping up any water or spills from them - poor quality steel and poor functionality lead me to rate Samsung as low as possible for the price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ne9xcitem This product has performed as stated in the uesr manuel.
This range is easy to operate and heats up very fast. This is my first experience with the glass ceramic cooking surface ; so I am having to adjust how I cook some items. I like the warming drawer and it works well. I like the convection oven because it cooks so fast. The feature that cause me concern is that when the timer reaches it end . It shuts off the oven rather than just sounding the alarm.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CaddyVette beautiful product
I originally was going to buy a regular convection range and a convection microwave in order to have 2 ovens to use when entertaining. When I saw this range I changed my mind. I have a very small kitchen, and when I entertain it is always necessary to be baking more than one item at a time. The feature that allows me to use two different temperatures in one cavity is good. I haven't had occasion to use it as yet, but have been happy with the range's other features. It is also a beautiful appliance and sets off my new custom cabinets very well, all working together to make a lovely kitchen.
