The top options from CR’s extensive lab tests are from GE, LG, and Samsung
Plenty of cooks—and a majority of CR members—prefer cooking on gas. And it’s easy to see why. Twist a knob and you get a flame. That taps into a vein of satisfaction that goes back millennia.
But gas ranges don’t always perform as well as their electric counterparts in our tests.
“Even if gas ranges aren’t always as fast as smoothtops to boil water, they offer a level of sensory feedback that you won’t find on electric models,” says Tara Casaregola, who oversees range testing for Consumer Reports.
