The LG LSE4617ST is another excellent option for an induction range with electric oven. This standard 30-inch wide, 6.3 cu front-control induction smoothtop range performs well and has some innovative features such as the ability to control the appliance wirelessly through your smartphone (although the GE Profile and Kenmore Elite also have these).
The LG features 4 surface cooking elements, including 2 high-powered elements and 2 mid-powered elements, using 4000 and 3200, and 1800 watts respectively. This makes it a little higher on the energy output than the Kenmore and a little lower than the GE. It also has a warming element, but no bridge element.
As for the oven, it features a convection mode and the element is in the back wall rather than the floor, for faster, consistent cooking and baking. It also has an infrared grill, which can save time and energy. And it features both a ‘Steam-Clean’ and ‘Self-Clean’ mode, which are simple to use. A temperature probe is also included, and there are at least 7 rack positions in the oven, with gliding oven racks for ease of use. This model also has a 1 cu warming drawer and a door lock but does not seem to have a control lock, likely because the controls are not all digital (there are knobs for the elements).
LG LSE4617ST vs. GE Profile and Kenmore Elite
The LG is bigger than both the GE Profile and the Kenmore Elite, and also has extra space in the warming drawer, making it a great model for those who like to use their oven to capacity. While the GE and Kenmore might look better for households with kids, because of the control lock feature, this is an induction stovetop, so safety risks are much lower than with an electric or gas range. This one is not ADA compliant, though, nor is it Star-K compliant as it has an Automatic Safety Shut-Off after 12 hours.
