We recently tested the Samsung FTQ386LU SteamQuick range, a 30-inch-wide, stainless-steel electric smoothtop range with a five-element ceramic-glass cooktop, a three-fan convection system, an oven with a claimed capacity of 5.7 cubic feet, and a warming drawer. One other feature you might find appealing is what Samsung calls “SteamQuick,” a light-duty cycle that gets the oven ready for you to wipe clean in 20 minutes.

We just bought a new Bosch range, and I love it!
