The LG LRE3193 has a sleek, attractive design. Its control panel is fully touch automated and comes in three different colors to complement the smooth black ceramic stovetop and to match your décor. One of the first things you may notice is the gorgeous cobalt blue interior, but one of its best features is the oven’s large capacity. The LG LRE3193 has the looks, features and capacity to run with the best electric ranges on the market.
There are five burners on the ceramic cooktop, including two dual expandable burners that expand from 6 to 9 inches, and 9 to 12 inches respectively. The smaller expandable element can produce up to 3,200 watts of power and the bigger one maxes out at 2,700 watts. The other burners include two 6-inch elements, one 7-inch and a 100-watt warming zone burner.
Of the electric ranges in our lineup, this LG model has the largest capacity and the most powerful broiler element. It can hold up to 6.3 cubic feet and broil food with a wattage of 4,200. Its baking element also packs a serious punch with 3,400 watts.
This LG model uses a specialized enamel to make cleaning easy. Instead of reducing messes to ash with high temperatures, you only need to spray the coating with water and press the clean cycle button. After 20 minutes, the heat and water loosen the soils in the oven. All you have to do is wipe them up. That is on par with the fastest self-cleaning cycles in our lineup.
This is the only electric range with only touch pad controls. This makes the backsplash far easier to clean and adds to this range's sharp look. Even for its modern look, it's missing a couple standard features like an auto shut-off. This means you have to pay close attention to turn off the oven yourself. This is not one of the ovens that offers pre-programmed settings for things like pizza and chicken fingers. That is not generally a deal-breaker but can be a nice extra. One oven that has convenience settings for pizza and chicken nuggets is the Samsung NE59J7630.
The warranty on this electric range lasts for one year. When you have questions, the LG website has several ways to help you. The help library has product-specific information for this and other LG ranges, and you can also contact an LG representative by phone, email or live chat on the website. This is one of the manufacturers that actually staff their live chat, too, so you get a real person during normal hours, and fast.
If you're remodeling, the LG LRE3193 is an attractive, sleek touch control range. The broiler wattage and oven capacity in this LG model top all its competitors in size and wattage. It is easy to use and easy to clean. However, it is missing some standard features such as a timed shut-off and control lock that would make it even better suited for large families with kids.
