Electric stoves have come a long way from those coil-heated elements you used in your first apartment. Here are a couple of the best electric ranges our reviewers loved. 

Our reviewer's clear pick for the overall best electric range is this beauty by Whirlpool. It boiled water and made pizza quicker than average with plenty of extra features you want in a convection range. Both the oven and cooktop area are spacious making it perfect for dinner parties and holidays. You can also expect consistency when baking especially if you opt for cooking a single tray at a time.

If you've got extra money to burn, the Bosch electric range is one worth investing in. Aside from looking great with its sleek stainless steel finish, it performs exceedingly well. The cooktop runs as hot as 800 degrees Fahrenheit, giving it a versatile edge over the competition. For our reviewer's money, it's the best upgrade electric range available. 

The LG LREL6325F Freestanding Electric Convection Range is one of our reviewer's picks for the best electric ranges that's well within many budgets. It sports short water boiling times, some of the best and most consistent convection baking and even air frying capabilities. The wide cooktop has five powerful heating elements that are also very easy to clean.

Magnets are the heart and soul of induction ranges which make for some of the speediest and most consistent cooking possible. Most importantly, due to the direct-heat conduction, induction ranges are also perhaps the safest cooking method out there right now. 

GE Profile PHS93XYPFS is our reviewer's pick for the overall best induction range on the market right now for its seriously smart cooking features. Its five cooktop elements handle highs and lows equally well with some of the quickest boiling times. The oven is equally consistent when it comes to the way it dishes out heat. There's also a camera inside the oven so you can watch your food like a hawk from the comfort of your couch.

The Bosch 800 Series HII8057U isn't just one of the best induction ranges—it's also one of the safest. There are 11 different cooking modes including convection, broil, pizza and even one that allows you to turn your oven into a proofing box. Its touch controls are some of the most user-friendly and the self-clean function makes it truly a joy to maintain.

Induction cooking may seem daunting. For induction newbies, our reviewers recommend the Frigidaire FGIH3047VF for a user-friendly entry point. Its auto-adjusting burners take the guesswork out of cooking with cooktops that can dish out serious heat. The oven preheats fairly well too, and it even boasts air frying capabilities. 

Some homes have the space to free cooktops from their ovens. If that's the case for you, here are some of the best countertop cooking devices that are as sleek as they are innovative. 

This countertop induction burner is built for professional kitchens but is also a workhorse for everyday cooking. It offers some of the best precision in the game, whether you're simmering, boiling or frying. You can even use it for sous vide cooking. Its wide cooktop can handle up to 200 pounds and the gorgeous LCD controls will dazzle you whenever dinnertime rolls around.

Precision heat is key when you're making anything from brioche donuts to salted caramel sauce. The Hestan Cue countertop induction cooktop is only four pounds and blends a compact form with powerful function which make it one of our reviewer's picks for best induction cooktops. If you're still learning to cook, there's no better teacher: Its companion app packs hundreds of guided recipes with detailed instructions that work in conjunction with the cooktop. 

No oven? No problem. The KitchenAid KICU509XB is a great standalone option and our reviewer's pick for the best overall electric cooktop. It sports serious power, boiling water in as little as two minutes. The temperature range and precision of this induction cooktop make it especially great for professional-level home cooks. Its consistency and ease of use make it stand out amongst its competitors.

Smaller kitchens demand smaller, sleeker cooking appliances. Busy home cooks need multifunctional appliances to lend a helping hand in the kitchen. Here are some of the best multicookers that can augment any kitchen. 

One of the best multicookers is also one of the smartest. The Chef IQ Smart Cooker is our reviewer's pick for the best value pressure cooker even though it's one of the coolest-looking models on the market. It operates via a gorgeous LCD screen, is fully customizable and even features a built-in scale. There's also a companion smartphone app with tons of guided recipes. 

The Ninja Foodi is our reviewer's pick for the best multicooker for its unmatched versatility. It features 14 cooking modes including popular pressure cooking and air fryer capabilities, as well as a stovetop element and the ability to cook complete meals with steam and convection. Its built-in temperature probe allows for precision cooking and it is also incredibly easy to clean. 

Multicookers aren't synonymous with gourmet cooking, unless it's the Wolf Gourmet Multicooker. This sturdy countertop device pressure cooks, sautés and even has sous-vide capabilities. It's programmable so you can use multiple cooking styles to put together a delicious meal.
