Consumer Reports: space-saving double ovens

(WMC TV) - One of the biggest challenges of remodeling a kitchen is choosing cooking appliances. Choices among cook-tops, ovens and ranges have mushroomed in 

recent years.

Consumer Reports tested more than 250 models to help you hone in on some great buys.

New ranges offer additional cooking options and can cost hundreds less than buying separate units, even 30-inch ranges. More and more come with double ovens -- a large one on the bottom and a smaller one on top.

The 30-inch Frigidaire Symmetry Double Oven Model #FGEF308TNF has two same-sized ovens that can each handle a turkey. Testers were able to fit a 26-pound turkey in each one.

As for the stovetop, both gas and electric did very well in Consumer Reports' tests.

If you've got your heart set on a double-oven range, you have more options with electric. 
Among the top-rated:  that double-oven Frigidaire Symmetry Double Oven Model 
# FGEF308TNF for $1,800. Both of its ovens have convection settings for faster 
cooking. It also simmers superbly, and the smooth-top makes clean-up a breeze. 

If you need a gas stove and are considering getting a dual-fuel range, Consumer 
Reports said the ones it tested don't offer much advantage. However, Consumer 
Reports did find a great gas stove, a Frigidaire's Gallery for $775. It doesn't have a 
double oven, but it does have five burners and a convection oven.
