Samsung FE710DRS/XXA Flex Duo Electric Oven Review$1,699.00
It may seem like Samsung neglected the Flex Duo FE710DRS/XXA's broiler, which perhaps they did. It took over fifteen minutes to reach 544°F-- a temperature most ovens can hit in a third of the preheat time. But while it seems amateurish in comparison to the rest, it isn't so terrible. Most people don't need to operate their oven over 550°F--and shouldn't--so this is not a dealbreaker.
This broiler, meant to be operated with the door cracked open, has two settings, "LO" and "HI." The manual instructs the user when to use each setting, although it provides little insight to exactly how hot "LO" is supposed to be. As stated above, we got the "HI" setting up to 544°F after fifteen minutes. Although we recommend consulting the interweb and the manual when broiling, our sense of prudence reminds us that nothing can replace close monitoring of the broiled food if unfamiliar with the oven's operation.
