$999.99

Introduction

Most people are used to seeing the old standbys of GE, Maytag, Whirlpool, KitchenAid, and Kenmore in the kitchen. But today, the influx of other companies have shaken up the market, innovating and injecting a sense of competition that ends in better ranges for the consumer.

It takes a lot to entice the American market from the brands trusted since the fifties. But sometimes amazing performance and solid value makes makes a good case against years of brand loyalty. The LG LRE3023ST makes this case well.

Despite the interesting design interpretation of "stainless steel" and slow boiling and broiling results, this range had some of the finest performance marks we've seen this year: the spectacular oven temperature control, quick preheating, rangetop temperature range, and convection oven.

And of course the best part is all this is available for under $900 (MSRP $1,000).
