Croissants baking in an electric range.

You might think most electric ranges do a decent job of heating and baking. But in Consumer Reports’ tests, some models struggle just to hold a steady simmer or brown a sheet of cookies. In fact, there’s a staggering 40-point difference in the Overall Score of the best and worst electric ranges in our tests

Below, we highlight the very best single- and double-oven electric ranges we test. Each year, CR’s expert testers bake hundreds of cakes and cookies, and take thousands of precise temperature measurements to see how well every range that passes through our lab heats, bakes, and broils.

More on Ranges

"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. 

But we don’t stop at performance tests. We also survey members on whether their gas ranges have experienced a break or a problem to calculate the predicted reliability for different range brands. 

For more on ranges of all types, see our range buying guide. Consumer Reports members can read on for six of the best electric ranges from our tests. Members can also jump right to our electric range ratings to compare models.
