Last week I spilled that I was getting the new Frigidaire Gallery® Range with Symmetry™ Double Oven, and now it have officially arrived! After almost a week with the oven, we’ve had quite the time getting “acquainted”. In case you don’t remember, this was what my old stove looked like. Yeah, not so exciting.
And now, this is my new Frigidaire stove. While we loved the look of the stainless steel, we decided to go with black to match a majority of our other appliances. Nothing like a shiny, new oven. Seriously. My old one was badly in need of a cleaning and now I’m starting over fresh with a beautiful interior!
One of my favorite new features of the stove is having two ovens. Being able to cook at two different temperatures simultaneously is such a luxury. And knowing exactly what temperature each oven is at is very easy with the digital display, even while the ovens are preheating
With simple one touch options, it is easy to select the proper settings including setting the timer, temperature and more. I will admit I chuckled a bit when I saw the “chicken nugget” setting, mostly because this is a higher end stove. It is easy to overlook however since admit I heat up chicken nuggets on a regular basis for my boys.
One of my very first test runs with the oven included making pumpkin raisin muffins. Being able to look through the door of the oven and watch them cook was such a treat. I didn’t try out the convection because I wanted to get a feeling for the regular settings but I look forward to trying that out too!
These muffins cooked slower than they would have in my old oven but still within the recommended time range. It felt as though it would be harder to burn these muffins as they seemed to brown so evenly and were so fluffy. A couple of days later I made some simple refrigerated biscuits and my husband couldn’t stop raving about them. He asked if they were super fresh or if I had done something different because they seemed so fluffy. All I could say was no, actually they were close to their use by date and the only difference was the stove. It didn’t stop him from going on and on.
Watch for more posts regarding my experiences with my new Frigidaire and it’s features including the cooktop and convection settings coming soon!
