Cooktop and wall oven reviews

Consumer Reports is the only place to find unbiased, independent cooktop and wall oven reviews. If you are looking for a new cooktop, do you go with electric or gas? Induction or coil? If you use gas fuel, is a cast-iron grate the way to go? What about wall oven features like self-cleaning and variable broil?

Our experts at the Consumer Reports National Testing and Research Center have evaluated nearly 120 current models at our on-site testing labs. Our reviews provide you with Ratings, where you will find the exact numerical score our experts have assigned to each of the criteria that make up our reviews for these appliances.

What's behind our cooktop & wall oven Ratings?

Experts at our National Testing and Research Center tested 65 models in cooktops & wall ovens to see which ones perform best.
We look for:
  • Overall score
    Overall score reflects cooktop performance at high and low heat, as well as safety issues such as surface temperature. The displayed score is out of a total of 100 points.
  • High heat
    Reflects how quickly the highest-powered element heated water to near-boiling.
  • Low heat
    Reflects how well the lowest-powered element or burner kept a low temperature as for melting chocolate and how the most powerful element, set to low, held tomato sauce below a boil.
