About - LG LRE3012ST

The LG LRE3012ST is part of the kitchen range test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric range models like the LRE3012ST are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Cooktop high:
This reflects how quickly the most powerful element could raise a 6-liter (6 1/3 quart) pot of water from room temperature to a near boil.

Cooktop low:
This reflects the ability of the lowest power element to melt and hold chocolate without scorching it. We also set the most powerful element to its lowest setting to test its ability to hold a large pot of tomato sauce below a boil.

Baking:
This reflects the evenness of cookies and cakes in multi-rack baking tests.

Comment:
I purchased this stove in late October 2012 - the control panel stopped working 2 weeks ago and the part has been discontinued...LG offered me a buy back of 525.00 - It is a 840.00 stove. Prior to the control panel melt down the oven constantly over heated and the back burners are so close to the panel you can only fit very small pots. Highly disappointed with the quality of appliances produced by LG (icemaker broke after 6 months of my purchasing LG refrigerator and the arm came off the dishwasher the first day I owned it.) Waste of money!
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
When I saw the rust, I immediately tested the surfaces with a magnet - it IS magnetic - cannot be stainless.<br />I called LG about the rust stains - I asked them what it is made of. A return call confirmed it is NOT stainless. They had NO explanation. Luckily I have found this defect fairly early and can still return it... It is a shame because I researched ovens before I purchased and this oven looks and works great
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
