SEOUL, Nov. 24 (Korea Bizwire) — Samsung Electronics’ induction electric cooktops received perfect scores from the U.S. Consumer Report, company officials said Friday.
A review of cooking appliances being sold in the United States placed Samsung’s 30-inch cooktop at No. 1, ahead of rival models from General Electric and Kenmore, which both received 99 points. The South Korean company’s 36-inch induction electric cooktop also received 100 points.
Samsung said this is the first time that the U.S. Consumer Report has given perfect scores to a cooking appliance.
The report praised Samsung cooktops for their “virtual flame” light, flexible cooking zones for different shapes and sizes of pots and Wi-Fi-enabled connection with smartphones.
Company officials said nine kitchen products from Samsung, including five cooktops, two gas ranges and two wall ovens, all placed in the top rankings of the report’s review of 12 cooking appliances.
