Comments:

We've had our Frigidaire for several weeks now, and so far so good. This range has two induction burners and two "regular" electric burners. We love the induction burners because they are safe to use around kids, and plus they boil water and heat pans in mere seconds! We chose the hybrid because we still have our favorite pots/pans that are not true stainless steel, so we have to use those on the "regular" electric burners. To determine if your pans are true 18/10 stainless steel, place a magnet on the bottom and if it sticks they'll work on the induction burners. All of the burners heat very quickly and very evenly, so be prepared for your food to cook FAST, especially eggs! We also love that the "regular" electric burners cool off quickly, as the range has a built in fan that helps cool down the entire unit (also does it after using the oven). It doesn't make our kitchen like a furnace. The oven has three convection modes (roast, broil and bake) but we haven't tried all of them yet. My husband cooked a frozen pizza that he said turned out cooked absoluetly perfect all the way through, like a resturant pizza. I've baked an angel food cake with convection and used the convection converter feature, and it baked it absolutely perfect. Our next attempt will be to roast a chicken and use the "roast" convection feature. The only con is that the glass/ceramic surface is hard to keep clean, and you can't use just any cleaner on it. Be sure to buy a special cleaner for glass/ceramic cooktops. You also have to be careful not to slide your pans across the cooking surface too forcefully... we haven't scratched it yet, but we've been very careful.
