About - LG LDE3015ST

The LG LDE3015ST is part of the kitchen range test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric range models like the LDE3015ST are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Cooktop high:
This reflects how quickly the most powerful element could raise a 6-liter (6 1/3 quart) pot of water from room temperature to a near boil.

Cooktop low:
This reflects how well the lowest-powered element or burner kept a low temperature as for melting chocolate. We also set the most powerful element to its lowest setting to test its ability to hold a large pot of tomato sauce below a boil.

Baking:
This reflects the evenness of cookies and cakes in multi-rack baking tests.

Comment:
Replaced a gas cooktop and old oven with this. Was a little worried about going to an electric cooktop, but that has been easy enough. Yes, the cooktop and stove interior require some TLC when cleaning, but I assumed that would be the case with any new range, particularly this type of stove top. Follow the instructions and it is fine. Yes, the oven is not true convection, but that was also quite clear from the literature and information here before I bought it. I cook a lot, 5-6 meals a week, so I have used this heavily. The dual oven makes life so much easier and the lower oven is pretty big. Broiling is great. The stovetop runs a bit hotter than I expected and I am still learning how to use it well, but the results have been good. Moving to a new place next year and while it is not worth moving this range, I plan to buy another LG, or something similar. Call me a convert.

I was quite worried about this oven after reading the other reviews on this site. We have used all aspects of this range and have found none of the problems experienced by other purchasers. Everything works very well. We are very happy with this double oven range.

KEEP YOUR MONEY THE COMPANY DOESNT STAND BUY THEIR PRODUCTS, I COMPLAINED ABOUT THE CONVECTION OVEN NOT BEING true concevtion three week after I purchased this range after my first use of use duel ovens an it ruin my dinner party I know tried it again with the same pro results. The company believes thiers products are awsome cool,but do they really use them. customer service did well by send a tech out quickly but nothing or nobody really listened or listening to my true compliant the oven doesnt cook right. The service man kept fucusing on the top cook stove scatches , oh it scratch real east too lol. so what the biggest disappiont is the it doesnt function right. cooks uneven on front burner an the convection oven. a supervisor hung up on me after i said covection oven where supposed cook evenly that what they are designed to do. Im 43 I love my old stove because of the convection oven. As a buyer spend your money else where.<br />I cant even sell it knowing that it doesnt work right but lg can. they dont stand buy they products i say buy north amercian aleast I still believe they do!
