Introduction

Since the beginning of ovens, homo sapiens had to choose between a single, normal capacity oven, two smaller ovens, or burning the money on two normal capacity ovens. Fortunately, the Samsung Flex Duo FE710DRS now permits users to finally vanquish mutual exclusivity.

Samsung has voided the mutual exclusivity of those choices with the Flex Duo system, which allows one to split the oven with a ceramic divider to create two separately controllable cooking cavities, complete with their own convection fans. Besides the titular feature, this oven sports a litany of other features in its arsenal, which range from useful to simply... well, present.

Fortunately, the vast amount of features don't require the sacrifice of performance, which varied from solid to excellent throughout the various criteria we tested in the oven and on the rangetop. The only Achilles heels we found were the less-than-stellar broiler and over-powered front left burner. But it's hard to imagine these things as dealbreakers.

If you've hit midlife and are looking for a convertible, few convertibles will heat things up faster than this one. And let's face it: this is far more practical and economical than a Porsche.
