About - Samsung FX710BGS

The Samsung FX710BGS is part of the kitchen range test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, gas range models like the FX710BGS are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


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

Cooktop low:
This how well the lowest-powered element or burner kept a low temperature as for melting chocolate. We also set the most powerful burner to its lowest flame 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:
oven doesn't seem to be operating properly. Hot on the sides where the heat comes up and cooler in the middle.A roast will be cooked on the top and rare on the bottom.A chicken will cook nicely if sitting on top of a rack, with a pan underneath, but not if it sits in the pan.The convection works well and I believe needs to be used for all oven operations.

Comment:
I do not cook on a daily basis, however, I do have frequent dinner parties and house guests. Love having 3 oven racks with the ingenious split rack. Very attractive and found the warming door to be a real asset.<br /><br />Have not used the griddle but have used the long burner for large stock pot and it worked very well. Cook top is spacious and allows for using large sized cookware without crowding. House guest had very positive comments when using this appliance.<br />Do not like stainless steel but features won over finish.
