About - Whirlpool WFC310S0AW

The Whirlpool WFC310S0AW is part of the kitchen range test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric range models like the WFC310S0AW 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:
This range doesn't have so many bells and whistles that they get in the way of cooking. I gave up my multi-use glass top range for this basic one. Other than the fact I will have to be vigilant about keeping the drip pans clean, I am very happy I down-sized back to a cal-rod unit range. I cook, for the most part, 3 meals a day, and this new range has performed well. I purchased this range based on the recomnmendations of CR. I couldn't be happier with the results. It also LOOKS very nice in my kitchen.
