From the Lab

From real world baking tests to rangetop temperature measurements, the Frigidaire FPEH3077RF performed well in every category of our comprehensive suite of tests. Most impressive were the baking tests, which even pricier ranges have failed to pass so thoroughly.

Oven & Broiler Performance

There’s little to criticize regarding how this oven bakes. The FPEH3077RF’s broiler reached our target temperature of 603°F in 5 minutes 13 seconds, while preheat times were about 11 minutes with the standard bake setting and 10 minutes 40 seconds with convection.

Once the oven was up to temperature it turned out near-perfect baked goods. Cookies were evenly baked at the standard setting, with golden tops and bottoms regardless of where each individual cookie was located in the cavity. Convection only made these excellent results better.

Cakes also did well in this oven, browning evenly with both standard bake and convection settings. Use convection if you want, but standard bake works so well that it doesn’t really matter which setting you choose here.

Rangetop Performance

The left front burner reached the rangetop’s highest temperature of 688°F, and dipped to an acceptable 132°F when we measured its minimum temp. The right rear burner wasn’t far off when it came to high temps, peaking at 680°F, but bottoming out at an even lower 112°F. The left rear burner hit a similar max temp of 678°F, but its lowest temperature was 138°F. The right front dual-ring burner wasn’t as hot as the other burners, climbing to just 546°F—still hot enough for searing—but dipping to the rangetop’s lowest temperature of 106°F. The numbers don’t lie—simmer or stir-fry on any burner, they’re all versatile enough.

When it came to boiling, the fastest burner was the right front's outer ring, which got 6 cups of water bubbling in just 3 minutes 50 seconds. The left rear burner boiled in 7 minutes—still quite fast. Other burners were significantly slower: 9 minutes 39 seconds on the left front burner, and just under 11 minutes on the right rear. None of these are terribly long waits, but you might as well stick to the right front and left rear burners for boiling if you can.
