Pros

  • Excellent induction cooktop

  • Preheats well

  • Unique air fry mode

Cons

  • True convection isn't perfect

  • Control panel is finicky

Love them or hate them, air fryers continue to be wildly popular into 2020. But rather than the bulky black boxes that were first introduced a couple of years ago, newer air fryers are sleek, subtle, and sometimes directly integrated into existing appliances—like this Frigidaire range.

Available in gas, electric, and now induction, Frigidaire introduced its first line of 30-inch ranges that feature an air fry mode earlier this year. And we’ve found these programs work quite well—even if they’re just rebranded convection bake settings.

But Frigidaire’s latest induction range has more to offer than its air fry capabilities. In our testing, the FGIH3047VF roasted a 2-pound piece of pork without losing its juice, made a cooked-through pizza with a crisp crust, and brought six cups of water to boil in just over four minutes thanks to its sleek and speedy induction cooktop.

What we like

We were impressed by the speed and performance of the induction burners.

It has a speedy, simple induction cooktop

Our favorite thing about this induction range is, as you might expect, its excellent induction cooktop. Induction is widely celebrated for being fast, safe, and easy to clean, and all those points apply to this smooth cooktop.

Each of the cooktop’s four burners can auto-detect the size of your cookware and fit to its base, so there’s no need for switching on separate rings. The burners heat quickly and evenly, and maintain their heat—the hottest burner can boil 6 cups of water in just over four minutes. We were surprised to see that the lowest temperatures these burners can achieve aren’t as low as those on the electric range from this line, but the total temperature range from about 95°F to 685°F is still impressive.

While induction isn’t necessarily intuitive when you’re used to using gas or electric cooktops, the FGIH3047VF is easy to use and learn on, making a good choice for home cooks who are new to the technology.

The oven can evenly cook meat and pizza

Pizza came out crispy and cooked through, but not burnt.

We were impressed by the oven’s performance on both our pizza and pork roast tests. A 2-pound piece of pork came out fully-cooked but not dry, and the pizza crisped up nicely. This indicates that the standard bake setting is up to most cooking and baking tasks.

It preheats well, with or without convection

The FGIH3047VF can preheat to 350°F in just over 12 minutes, both when using the true convection setting and when using the normal bake function. This is slightly over the 10 minutes we’d hope for when preheating an electric oven, but is still much faster than many ovens, including the Frigidaire FGEH3047VF that takes 18 minutes to preheat on standard bake.

The air fry setting is a nice bonus

While an air fry setting isn't a must-have, it's an added bonus for a lot of users.

This range has an Air Fry mode designed for crisping up French fries, chicken wings, vegetables, and anything else you might want to cook in an air fryer. The Air Fry mode can be used with standard cookware and baking trays, but Frigidaire also has an Air Fry tray that is available for purchase separately.

The FGIH3047VF crisped up frozen French fries somewhat evenly using the Air Fry mode, and more evenly when using the official Air Fry tray. However, we saw more even performance from the electric model we tested in 2019.

Ultimately, the “air fry” capability is little more than a branding term for existing convection technology. This range has “true convection,” which means that in addition to a convection fan, there is a third heating element that works to maintain temperature consistency throughout cooking. It’s this true convection technology that circulates hot air at high speeds to achieve the crunchy-on-the-outside, juicy-on-the-inside goodness of “air fried” food.

As a result, it’s not absolutely necessary to buy an oven with an air fry setting to achieve these results, but the preset is certainly handy.

What we don’t like

Frigidaire Gallery FGIH3047VF Induction Range - Cookies Top

Although cookies baked evenly across single trays (shown here), the convection setting on this oven didn't seem to produce even bakes across different racks.

True convection performance isn’t perfect

While we appreciate the oven’s inclusion of a third heating element and convection fan for true convection, the convection setting didn’t turn out perfectly even bakes. Cookies baked on two different racks using the convection setting came out slightly different in color, meaning that the heat was not circulated perfectly in the oven.

The imperfect Air Fry mode also suggests that the existing convection setting isn’t the best it could be, as air frying is just a form of convection baking.

The control panel is finicky

The range's front control panel took some getting used to.

During testing, we found the touchscreen control panel to be a bit finicky—it took us a while to figure out what to press, and we accidentally shut off programs when we meant to turn off the timer. The same may happen for users who are new to this range. The buttons aren’t as responsive as they are on high-end ranges.

What owners say

We can’t speak to this Frigidaire’s longevity because the new line of ranges only launched this past summer. However, owners absolutely love the FGIH3047VF, applauding its fast boil times, easy-to-clean cooktop and unique air fry setting. Some users complain about accidentally pressing the control panel while cooking.

The range has an average of 4.7 out of 5 stars from 139 reviews on the Frigidaire website, and a remarkably similar score on the Home Depot website—4.7 stars with 141 reviews.

Warranty

The Frigidaire Gallery FGIH3047VF induction range comes with a one-year limited warranty that covers defective parts and labor.

Should you buy it?

Ultimately, this is a fantastic induction range for the price.

If you’ve been meaning to make the jump into induction cooking but have been too scared to take the plunge, the Frigidaire Gallery FGIH3047VF might be right for you. The simple, sleek range has auto-adjusting burners and a straightforward layout to help reduce the induction learning curve, and the quick-boiling burners can cut down on total cook times. With the added bonuses of an Air Fry mode, true convection, and steam cleaning, this is a feature-loaded range at a great price.
