The engineers and technicians in Consumer Reports’ cooking appliance labs put dozens of new gas ranges through their paces each year. Our performance tests capture everything from how quickly a model heats water to how evenly it bakes.

We also look into how appliances hold up outside the lab, in the real world of our members’ homes. Every year we survey our members about the products they own, and we use that data to make projections about how new models from a given brand will hold up over time—our predicted reliability ratings.

We also ask members how likely they are to recommend their range, and that serves as the basis for our owner satisfaction rating.

These latest findings come from the Consumer Reports 2019, 2020, and 2021 Spring Surveys, which leverage data on 80,325 ranges that our members purchased between 2011 and 2021.

"The reliability between gas range brands varies,” says Simon Slater, CR’s associate director of survey research. “And only a single gas range brand we test earned a top rating for reliability in our latest surveys."
