We've had the Samsung induction Chef collection range for several months and are more delighted as time goes on. The stovetop cooking is amazingly precise, the heating effect is perfectly distributed through the bottom of a pot, so the cooking is far easier to control (heat up and down is immediate, like a gas range) and it is difficult to scorch food. The fact that the element surface doesn't get hot (other than what the pot transfers to it) allows for cleanup of spills on the element even while cooking . The duo oven is great. If you keep the divider in and just use the top oven it reduces warm-up time and general electrical use considerably. The oven(s) also have heating coils in the fans so that that the fans don't cause cooling. The baking is wonderfully even -- far better than we've had with previous ovens. Before we got the range we were worried about the noise the induction generator and the pots might make. The generator makes a low hum that we really don't even notice. We purchased several thin cast iron pots (enamel coated) that cook wonderfully and are soundless. But we also discovered that the free pots that Samsung included with the purchase work just fine. They vibrate a bit on power boost (when the magnetic field is strongest) but that is usually used only for boiling water, and the water boils so fast (literally about a cup in 30 sec) that its hardly on that setting for any time. It took some doing to convince my wife to go this direction. We both cook, but she wasn't sure about the technology. We're both really glad we did. The initial cost was somewhat high but we'll have this stove hopefully for decades--and decades of great cooking are really worth it. It makes meals from scratch a lot more fun! We also love the safety factor. The controls. are large, easy to read, right on the front (so you don't have to reach over hot pots to get at them) . The electronic readout is clear and straightforward. The stove has a locking function that prevents children from turning the oven on, and the stove body fastens to the floor in the back to keep the stove from tipping if someone sits on the open oven door. All in all, a marvel of quality engineering. I couldn't be happier with it.

Worst design of any stove

Absolutely the worst design of any stove I have ever had, making the stove difficult to use. 1. Accidentally touching the burner control knobs while reaching for a pot on a back burner will turn it on causing a burner to get hot without realizing it. 2. The dual large/small burner control knob start at HI and go to LOW in both directions, requiring one to pass back through the HI setting to turn the burner off when cooking in LOW. 3. One must always lock the control panel to avoid accidentally changing a setting or shutting off the oven entirely while baking when reaching for something on a back burner. 4. The contents of the drawer located beneath the oven get very hot when baking, making the drawer useless.

Comments about Samsung Black Stainless Steel Slide-In Electric Range:
I love most things about our new stove. when using the timer for the first time I found the noise it makes when done is completely useless. I have to be standing right next to the stove to hear it. I called support and was told it is not possible to adjust the volume on the timer to an audible level, the options are only to turn it on or off. The other more important features of this stove work perfectly and I am otherwise extremely happy with this purchase.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This range has an unreliable oven thermostat.
from Seattle, WA, USA
I love the cooktop on this range but have had a lot of difficulty with the oven getting to the right temperature and then holding it. The range has an option to adjust the temperature up to 35 degrees, but I need 50 degrees. So I manually play with the screen temperature and use an external oven thermostat to guide me. As a baker, I'm very unhappy.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Beauty and function
from Scottsdale, AZ, USA
I have been wanting an induction range for a long time. This with the convection and or conventional baking functions, really great. The power boost element capacity is ingenious. Faster than a microwave. Cleans easily. The "virtual flame" is a great talking point with guests. It's also a safety feature from my standpoint, since I can clearly see if the element is funcioning properly and if it is "on".. So far, very happy. Samsung seems to have put all the bells and whistles in this model.

So far I like the range and the stove. They both have a learning curve on them we are still working on. The touch screen turns on to easily and does so even during clean up. I do love the stove top, but don't love the arrangement of the burners. They run fairly hot and often times medium is a little too hot. Water heats up in a flash though on high. It does shorten the time span for dinner. Oven preheats quick too (at least a lock quicker than our old oven).

Innovative, but could be better executed
from Atlantic Beach, NC, USA
This is the only unit on the market I could find with induction top and convertible-split oven. Love that part! But paid plenty extra for that feature. Problem is, can not do standard bake in smaller upper oven, only convection, which is not right for biscuits, pizza or many other the dishes. For standard bake, you have to use the bigger, lower oven. The basket-shaped lowest rack in oven has a support bar in the way of sliding dishes in and out and limits the useable depth.; practically unusable. Rack position in upper oven places broiler pan items either 1/2" or 5" from burner; not best broiling. Easy glide rack can only be placed in certain slots and interferes with placing other rack. Not enough standard racks included. And I've only been using it for a few days....

Outstanding performance with sleek slide-in design
from Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA
The stove top and oven look like more expensive professional models. The range and oven perform quickly and uniformly. It is my first experience with a convection oven and I find that it's balanced heating make it an easy transition. I also like that the door is closed during the broil function. My only concern is that the touch display engages very easily. I expected that it would activate when the "wake up" position was touched, but the screen lights easily when any part is touched - as in wiping the oven front or glass screen. While the screen does light none of the oven functions have activated unintentionally which I expect is part of Samsung's thoughtful design.

Love this stove, having a bit of trouble finding a pan for the big burner.
Very Good Range
from Miami, FL
Cooking is a cinch with this slide in electric range. Cleaning is also a piece of cake. I just wish the bottom drawer was a warming tray.
