Short boil times
Has True Convection
Useful smart features like Air Fry and InstaView
Air Fry tray sold separately
The LG LREL6325F Freestanding Electric Range is available in a stainless steel finish and a slightly more expensive black stainless steel finish, the LREL6325D ($100 more).
Like other LG appliances, the oven door is equipped with InstaView technology, which turns the oven interior light on and off with a simple two-tap knock on the window.
A thin line of stainless steel surrounds ceramic glass for the cooktop on this range without any gaps between the two materials, which means no grime buildup in hard-to-clean crevices. The two front burners are dual-zone and the back three are single-zone.
The oven has three standard racks with seven positions, and during testing we found that the upper racks cooked more quickly than the lower racks. Two trays of cookies baked at the same time were evenly baked across each individual tray, but the two trays were strikingly different. This didn’t feel like a deal breaker in terms of performance, however, it’s certainly something to be aware of when baking on multiple racks simultaneously.

What we like
The burners boil water quickly for an electric range
Electric cooktops will likely never rival the heat distribution and quick boil capabilities of a gas cooktop simply because these heat sources aren’t created equally. That said, the five burners on this electric range boiled water faster on average than the best range we’ve tested. This range boiled water in just under eight minutes on average during testing, which is among the fastest boiling we’ve seen for an electric range. (Gas and induction cooktops can boil water more quickly as they’re better at distributing heat efficiently and evenly than electric cooktops.)
The Air Fry mode makes perfectly crispy French fries
Yes, “air fry” is essentially the exact same thing as convection baking. However, not all convection ovens have True Convection like this one does, in which a third heating element behind the fan blows heated air on your food (just like an air fryer). Standard convection will achieve similar results, but the results won’t be identical to your beloved air fryer.
And what’s more, LG designed a special Air Fry tray that’s essentially a large metal wire grate that fits into an outer metal frame, which promotes even cooking on the top and bottom of food. The good news is that this tray helped produce deliciously crispy fries when we tested. The bad news is that this tray is sold separately.
The cooktop is spacious and easy to clean
Hands-down one of the best parts of any electric cooktop is the relative ease of clean-up, and this range is no exception. We were impressed by the construction, too, as there were no visible gaps between the glass and the stainless steel edge.
This cooktop can also fit two large stockpots and three small saucepans or frying pans simultaneously.
What we don’t like
The oven is slow to preheat
On average, between the standard and convection oven settings, it took this range about 13 minutes to preheat, which is about two-and-a-half minutes longer than the top-ranking Electrolux EI30EF45QS. We’ve tested other electric ranges with faster preheat times, like the Samsung NE59J7850WS Flex Duo that averaged preheat times in the 5-minute range. But generally speaking, even the quickest preheat means nothing if the oven doesn’t also bake food evenly—which this one does.
Some parts sold separately
The LG LREL6325F has a one-year limited warranty for parts and labor. This is standard for a range.
What owners are saying
Owners love this range. With an average of 4.5 stars out of 346 reviews on the brand’s website, it seems users love the InstaView “knock knock” for easily checking on baked goods, the air fry mode, and how quickly the burners heat up. Among the 500+ reviews on The Home Depot with an average 4.5-star rating, owners love the large oven capacity, useful oven settings like Air Fry and Proof, as well as the overall high-quality look and feel.
One user complained about the numbers next to the stove knobs wearing off after cleaning, while another said the text on the control panel was difficult to read.
Should you buy it?
Yes, it’s a reliable electric range with useful bonus features.
This electric range is an excellent choice for avid home cooks, adventurous bakers, and those who typically host holiday gatherings (that’s right, this oven is plenty big for that Thanksgiving turkey). We were impressed by the short boil times across all burners on the electric cooktop, and we like the two dual-zone burners. The LG LREL6325F has useful oven features that actually work, such as Air Fry, Proof, and Convection Bake. The biggest downside to this range is the relatively long preheat time; however, we don’t think this issue would be enough to keep most users from enjoying this range.
If you’re interested in owning the best electric range we’ve tested and don’t mind forking over an extra $1,000, consider the Electrolux EI30EF45QS.
