It would seem that LG had two reasons in mind when they are designing the LG LDE4415ST; for it to be big and for it to perform fast. The appliance has two open cavities that have a combined capacity of 7.3-cubic feet. This makes it one of the roomiest electric ranges that you can find in today’s market. The appliance manufacturer even equipped the device with “Speed” settings that are designed to cut down cooking times without damaging food quality.
The LG LDE4415ST Cooks Two for the Price of One
For its basic set of features, the LG LDE4415ST is able to cook well. When you roast chicken, it will come out gloriously (provided, of course, that you do cook it properly). There is also an UltraHeat burner that will let users boil water at blazingly fast speeds. However, there are features in this appliance that do more harm rather than helping.
For instance, the UltraHeat Power Boil Burner and the Speed Roast settings where the only features that lived up to their names. Other settings and functionalities could not live up to the cut and their advertised promises. For example, if you use the Speed Broil setting (which is located at the upper oven), it will take longer to cook six burgers than the regular broiler which is found in the lower oven. There will also be a noticeable difference to the quality of the burgers as they come out of the appliance. Those that are within the upper side were juicier as compared to those in the lower oven.
Another feature that does more harm than good for the LG LDE4415ST Electric Range is the ProBake Convection. For example, if you bake about a dozen biscuits that are equally laid out in a pan, the ones on the upper rack will cook evenly whereas those that are in the lower sections are consistently under-baked.
Furthermore, perhaps the most unusable feature for the electric range are the Pizza modes. If you use the appliance’s instructions you will be presented with what should have been a cheesy dish, not a completely charred thing that would now have the slightest remnants of the food being delectable. Hence, when cooking Pizza, it is best to follow recipe or package instructions instead of the electric range’s manual.
While there is a lot to like about the LG LDE4415ST, there is an even more number of things to dislike about it. The company may need to have left it in research and development first before they released this as it is very clear there are still quite a bit of flaws that need ironing out.
