LG Electronics Debuts Double-Oven Gas Range Series

LG Electronics has expanded its cooking appliance collection with its first line of double-oven gas ranges for the U.S. market.  These new freestanding ranges offer a variety of feature sets and options including large capacities, maximum usable cooking space, high performance and stylish designs, as well as advanced technologies like an infrared broiling system.  Additionally, LG is announcing several new gas cooktops which feature professional-grade cooking power and a sleek look. Both product lines blend high performance and the company’s award-winning design, helping consumers achieve great cooking results.  

“We’re excited to expand our double-oven range line to include gas models with the same high-performance features that made their electric counterparts a success,” said John Weinstock, vice president of marketing, LG Electronics USA.  “With smart designs and state-of-the-art features, we’re giving home chefs the best of both worlds with performance and flexibility that will help make cooking easier and more enjoyable.”

Gas Ranges: Home Chef Approved

Culinary enthusiasts will welcome the added convenience of being able to prepare multiple dishes at once to satisfy a big family during the holiday season or to ensure perfect timing for a meal.  With two separate ovens, it’s possible to cook different dishes at different temperatures, at the same time. With each range featuring a total capacity of 6.1 cubic feet, one of the largest in the industry, chefs will have room to cook an entire dinner at once. Even with two separate ovens, the new LG range fits within the standard footprint, so no kitchen modifications are needed.

Other noteworthy features include LG’s attractive IntuiTouch™ display that features controls on the right side and a diagram of which cooking elements are in use on the left.  For additional cooking power and performance, each range includes LG’s SuperBoil™ 17,000 BTU burner as it highest power burner.  This cooking surface maximizes usable space, easily accommodating a variety of differently sized cookware – including an extra-large saute pan, while still having two free ovens.  Users will also enjoy the award-winning design that has become the hallmark of LG appliances.  With stainless steel touchpoints, sleek controls and a brilliant blue interior, this range helps any kitchen look its best.

Gas Ranges:  Professional Performance

The flagship double-oven range includes the LG InfraGrill™ system, the company’s first infrared heating element that enables the oven to reach broil temperature quickly.  This reduces cooking time by 24 percent for popular items like hamburgers and chicken breasts.  LG first introduced infrared cooking in its Double-Oven Electric Range, the same technology often found in premium outdoor grills which allows for juicy cooking results.

LG also makes it easier to achieve great cooking results with its EvenJet™ system that offers faster preheating and great air circulation, resulting in more precise, uniform baking and roasting.

Available in stainless steel finishes at retailers now are models LDG3015, LDG3016 and LDG3017S at manufacturer’s suggested retail prices of $1,679, $1,889 and $2,099, respectively (prices vary for additional finishes including smooth black and white).  

Gas Cooktop Expansion

LG updated its cooktop portfolio as well with new 30- and 36-inch gas models, making the company’s high performance and stylish innovations accessible to a broader range of consumers.  Both feature five cooking elements, supported by LG’s SuperBoil™ burner totaling 17,000 BTUs, so there is enough room and power to satisfy the most active home chef.  Consumers will enjoy the heavy duty steel cast iron grates that allow for stable, even cooking, as well as a stylish compliment to the stainless steel finish.

The 30-inch cooktop model LCG3011ST and 36-inch model LCG3611ST are available now at manufacturer’s suggested retail prices of $1,154 and $1,259, respectively. The new cooktops join LG’s broad array of cooking appliances including induction, radiant and gas cooktops, electric and gas ranges, built-in wall ovens and microwave ovens.
