Whether you’re fully renovating your kitchen or updating some components, Samsung Canada has an extensive range of high quality ovens to suit any kitchen. One of the first decisions you need to make when purchasing a new oven is whether you need a gas or electric model.

There are pros and cons to both gas and electric stoves. Gas ovens tend to give more of a “moist” heat, which makes it better for cooking items like roasts. Their stovetops also heat faster and allow you to have more accurate heat control. Electric ovens tend to be better for baking and their stovetops tend to be more effective at cooking at low temperatures. People also tend to think of electric stovetops as slow to heat up, but most electric ovens these days are equipped with induction cooktops that use magnetic technology to immediately heat the pan.

If you’re leaning towards a gas oven, the Samsung 5.8 Cu. Ft. Self-Clean Gas Convection Range (NX58F5700WS) is a great option. This freestanding stove has a powerful (total 57,000 BTU) gas stovetop with four side burners and one dual flame burner in the middle for even cooking. It also comes with an additional Wok and Griddle grates to increase the versatility of the stovetop.

Inside, the True Convection technology guarantees that all your meals will be evenly cooked through every time. This model also comes with a warming drawer. Warming drawers are perfect for resting meat, proof bread, warm plates and even heat up leftovers.  If you’re interested in a gas oven but are looking for something with a lower price point, try the simpler Samsung 5.8 Cu. Ft. Self-Clean Gas Range (FX510BGS).

In regards to electric ovens, I would recommend the Samsung 5.8 Cu. Ft. Slide-In Self Clean Smooth Top Convection Range (NE58F9710WS). This high-quality stainless steel model offers a warming drawer and five cooking zones on the stovetop, two of which can be a dual cooking zone for even heat stovetop cooking.

Inside, this oven is equipped with Flex Duo technology.  This allows you to set two separate temperatures for the upper and lower oven racks. This unique temperature control system makes it perfect for cooking multiple dishes of large meals simultaneously. I also like that this model has the temperature control on front of the unit, giving it a cleaner, smoother style.

Another option is the Samsung 5.8 Cu. Ft. Slide-In Self Clean Smooth Top Convection Range (NE597N0PBSR). This model has one of the largest capacities out of all the Samsung stoves and uses True Convection technology on the inside and Induction technology on the stovetop burner. Induction technology gives some of the most precise temperature control available. This temperature control greatly decreases boiling and cooking times while keeping your stovetop at a low temperature, and it can save energy because all the energy of the system is going directly to cooking the food and none is being wasted on adding unnecessary heat to the cookware.

Whether you decide on gas or electric, all the Samsung models will be guaranteed to give you reliable, high-quality cooking capabilities resulting in delicious, evenly cooked meals again and again.
