Overall Efficiency

While it's difficult to really measure the efficiency of the oven, we can examine how the oven uses the power it draws by comparing the watts to the boiling and preheating results. But for the LG LRE3023ST, the peculiar nature of the boiling performance confused our tests. While the boiling scores were poor, the 8194 watts were put to good use as the average boiling time was low—despite the decreased utility of this characteristic.

The oven was somewhat efficient as the 3454 watts preheated the rather large 6.3 cubic foot cavity in ten and a half minutes. However, the unimpressive broiler took 4217 watts, far too many for the performance results.
