We’re quite impressed with the overall quality and performance of this Frigidaire Professional series cooktop. Despite being a 30 inch cooktop, it features 5 burners with a total 54,500 BTU. The most powerful burner is the right front burner powered with 18,000 BTU for high-power cooking which we like the most. If you read our best gas cooktop reviews, we make sure that there is at least one burner of 18,000 BTU or above to qualify for our pick. Powerful and even heating are crucial for a good cooking experience.
The PowerPlus Convection feature of this gas range delivers powerful performance for consistent results with 18,000 BTU for oven baking and 13,500 BTU for broiling. The inbuilt fans evenly circulate the oven heat that results in even roasting and baking, as well as faster results compared to traditional ovens with radiant heat. The 5.6 cubic feet of space is a generous amount of room for any home cooking experiences.
The self-cleaning mode which cleans the oven in just two hours is a premium feature only available with high-end gas ranges. I really think maintenance is a breeze with self-clean mode when compared to manual cleaning.
The control knobs are made of metal, which is nice initiative as plastic knobs have its downsides and that is true even for high-end gas ranges regardless of what the manufacturers said. The display is digital and simple to operate. Sautéing, searing or boiling is done with ease, thanks to the PrecisionPro controls.
If you’re looking for a gas range under $1,000 equipped with the best technologies and compelling features, look no further than Frigidaire Professional FPGF3077QF 30″. The price is definitely a deal maker. There are no other gas ranges at the budget price point that can offer such functional, convenient and reliable experience. This is one of the best rated gas ranges and a popular choice among many home cooks.
Other Features We like
The continuous grates made of cast-iron are easy to slide heavy pots and pans. This is a nice feature especially when you prepare meals for 5 – 10 persons, you don’t have to lift those heavy pots and pans. In addition, the grates are dishwasher safe.
It has a dual timer to use both cooktop and oven simultaneously. Just below the oven is a storage space for your pots and pans. The stainless steel is Smug-proof, which means it resists fingerprints and makes cleaning easier. It includes a nice griddle, ideal for breakfast items.
A common concern among many users is the oven’s timer which beeps only once. It’s not loud enough and we tend to miss it at times. There is no temperature display, so you’re going to miss the temperature status which is available with most ranges.
What sets this gas range from the rest of the other budget gas ranges is that it’s a premium gas range priced at half its value. You do your research and as pointed out earlier it’s far from being the best gas range, but for the price you won’t find a better option for a long time. There are many happy users including us and we all feel the cost of the range goes towards quality and performance, not bells and whistles.
