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.
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.
This reflects the ability of the lowest power element to melt and hold chocolate without scorching it. 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.
This reflects the evenness of cookies and cakes in multi-rack baking tests.
About This Brand
This midlevel brand sells cooking appliances priced between $1,000 and $2,500. New to cooking appliances, LG is known for high-tech design and technology and gear characterized by stylish controls and a large capacity in its freestanding ranges. Its Dual Convection System claims a 30 percent faster preheat time for ovens.
High-power elements The number of surface cooking elements rated at over 2,000 watts. On a smoothtop range, often one or more of the high-power elements is a dual element; you can choose the large element or a smaller element within the larger one for small pots.
Medium-power elements The number of surface cooking elements rated at over 1,500 watts but not more than 2,000 watts.
Low-power elements The number of surface cooking elements rated from 1,200 to 1,500 watts not including warming-only elements, or those contained within larger expandable elements.
Convection mode Has a convection feature that uses a fan or two to circulate heated air, and sometimes an extra heating element. The convection mode can be turned off if you prefer conventional cooking.
Double oven Double oven models have a second oven cavity. Most have a separate small oven above the main one complete with its own controls, door, window, oven light, slide-out rack, and self-clean function. While the upper oven offers easy access, the main oven is relatively low; you'll need to crouch to remove items from lower shelf positions. Other designs offer two same-sized ovens, or convert a single oven into two using a slide-in partition (though with a shared door.)
Cooking drawer Drawer below the main oven that can cook foods (up to a few inches high), as well as warm or heat serving bowls and plates. The cooking drawer has its own temperature control so can be set to cook a dish independent of the main oven. Foods must be lifted up out of the drawer (lacks a slide-out rack), and the drawer requires manual cleaning.
Slide-in Slides between cabinets; unfinished exterior on the sides of the range. The edge of the cooktop overlaps the counter on each side and all controls are on front panel for a built-in look.
Stainless steel available Many new mainstream ranges come with stainless steel trim or offer a stainless-trim version for an additional $200 or so.
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.
