You might think most electric ranges do a decent job of heating and baking. But in Consumer Reports’ tests, some stoves struggle just to hold a steady simmer or brown a sheet of cookies.

“For electric ranges, we see some of the biggest differences in how well their ovens bake and broil,” says Tara Casaregola, CR’s test engineer in charge of ranges.
