Black Gas Stove With A Ceramic Cooktop
There’s no doubt about it, this black gas range is stylish. While fingerprint are more visible on black than on white, it’s definitely not a deal breaker.
The fact that the surface is made of ceramic; it’s smooth which allows you to clean it with relative ease. Traditional coil element stoves are typically much more stubborn to clean because they are usually made of less durable surfaces.
This range does not have a hot surface indicator light, so you will have to be careful not to touch hot parts of the range after you’ve finished cooking.
Convection cooking is all about the fan and its ability to distribute heat. A traditional oven has hot spots which makes them rather tricky to use, especially when you want to cook foods that need a steady temperature and good heat distribution. The fan in this convection oven alleviates this problem by circulating the hot air and transferring it equally.
As you probably know, ovens are often hard to clean. Certain foods will create a mess and the interior design of some of these appliances can make the cleaning process quite a bit harder. The self-cleaning feature does not make this problem go away, but it definitely makes it easier to deal with.
Frigidaire FGGF3054MB Pros And Cons
The Frigidaire FGGF3054MB has a smaller profile than other gas ranges that’s ideal for most kitchen environments (Height x Width x Depth: 47.5” x 29. 9” x 28.5”). This range is great for a single person, but at the same time it will not be overwhelmed if you have a bigger family or you are inviting guests over for dinner.
Sure, you can keep your oven clean without using it, but it makes the cleaning process much easier, especially if you cook certain, “splashy” foods. Check out the FGGF3054 Manual for full cleaning instructions to see how easy it really is.
Keeping things organized in the kitchen is often an issue during and after cooking or baking. Having this drawer space definitely helps keep your baking sheets and pots in a place where you won’t forget them.
Frigidaire Gallery Convection Oven
Vegetables and meat tend to cook quicker in a convection oven because they cook evenly across all surfaces. There is a debate that it also helps make things more delicious but this actually depends on the ingredients and the seasonings used.
This may not be the most important thing, but the Frigidaire FGGF3054MB really is a beautiful oven. The black color combined with the ceramic cooktops make it almost elegant (if an oven can be elegant).
Ceramic cooktops are like that, they are as much of a disadvantage as they are an advantage. They certainly look amazing but you could burn yourself more easily if you are not careful because it tends to retain heat longer than metal or glass.
Scratches and fingerprints show up quite easily on black ceramic. You will have to be careful if you use cookware that has rough a bottom as this will increase the potential for scratches.
Lack of Broiler Pan
This range is able to broil foods, but it doesn’t come with a broiler pan. A pan can be purchased through Frigidaire if you need it.
This could be a deal breaker if you need a range that operates fully on gas. This range needs electricity to power the oven and cannot be operated without it.
