Summary: I'll state at the outset, I haven't yet done any baking with my new range. I've had it for only one month, but I read many reviews of many different brands, and want to add a preliminary impression for those who are trying to make a decision about which brand to buy. I looked seriously at the LG and Whirlpool Gold lines--didn't want an "extreme chef" range that cost twice as much. Those are status brands only, and have the same repair rate.
WORST RANGE I HAVE EVER SEEN FOR HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS I PAID FOR
31 March 2012
Summary: THIS IS THE WORST RANGE I HAVE EVER OWNED. IT HAS NOT WORKED RIGHT FROM DAY 1. I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND IT TO ANYBODY. NONE OF THE BOTTONS WORK AND THERE IS A SIGN "SE" ON THE RANGE & IT KEEPS BEEPING EVERY COUPLE OF HOURS. I LOOKED AT BOOK TO TROUBLE SHOOT BUT NONE OF THE BUTTONS WORK SO I CANNOT EVEN FIX IT OR FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS IN TROUBLE SHOOT SECTION OF THE BOOK. ONE OF THE MOST EXPENSIVE RANGE IN THE STORE B/C I NEVER BUY ANYTHING CHEAP.
Summary: I bought this oven in November and thought it was taking a long time to cook my food. Upon buying an oven thermometer I saw that the oven display would say 350 degrees and the actual inside temperature was 300, the oven was 50 degrees off! I called Samsung and they sent a technician out. The technician told me that the oven was in fact working properly. I said sir you do see that the display reads 350 and the inside thermometer says 300 right??
Summary: They call this a range convection, however it is not. The fan only spins for 10 seconds out of a minute. That is not convection cooking. The fan in a convection oven spins constantly to keep the air moving. A convection fan that spins for only 10 secondas will prevent hot spotsd at best. I am very disgusted with samsung over this purchase. I have the samsung fridge and dishwasher, they are fine. This range however is junk.
