Overall Oven Performance

The best part of the Samsung FX710BGS's oven was definitely the very quick preheat to 350°F. In just under six minutes from cold, this oven continues the range's tradition of not keeping its user waiting.

Target Temperature Accuracy

Despite the solid performance in the oven's typical zero to 350°F test, the oven didn't necessarily average 350°F. Set to 350°F this oven ran a little cool, averaging eleven degrees cooler than its target. Likewise at the 170°F setting of the keep-warm mode, the oven averaged 148°F. However, the hottest setting of 550°F, there was an acceptable average of 542°F.

Temperature Fluctuation

The temperature variance wasn't the greatest from the Samsung FX710BGS, straying a bit from where it was supposed to, at 350°F running up to 379°F and down to 317°F. The convection temperature variance wasn't any better, struggling just as much to maintain the proper temperature. While delicate foods won't appreciate this temperature change, a lot of food will probably be okay.
