Jenn-Air JDRP430W Dual Fuel Oven Review$4,700.00
Taking after the Vikings and the Wolfs, the Jenn-Air JDRP430W offers that high-end stainless look of a very serious kitchen. Not surprisingly, Jenn-Air has priced it accordingly at a staggering MSRP of $4700--although we found it on sale for $3900. Fortunately, if you decide to pull the trigger on this hot commodity, you'll get excellent performance, as good as this dual-fuel oven's looks.
The dual-fuel hybrid identity may be the main selling point for this oven, as owners benefit from both the consistency of the electric oven as well as the precision and instant adjustment of gas burners. While the rangetop may not have those extra features expected in such an expensive range (bridge burner, griddle, warming burner, etc.), it had three excellent quick-boiling power burners, over the usual one or two. Unfortunately, the performance will come with a decent gas bill. Down below, the convection-capable oven performed quite well in our tests, delivering consistent heat with short preheating periods, and more features than anyone will ever need.
The oven's major downside is the awkwardly placed control panel, which further irritated us by being a bit convoluted. So while you adjust it from a squat (it's perpendicular to the ground, not angled up), you'll stay down for a bit while you figure it out.
While we recognize the very diminished returns that come with spending three times more than a people's oven, this is an impressive oven to own, if you can afford it.
