What are the Main Features?
Offering total cooking versatility, this cooker comes features five different burners, all in varying sizes. The two in the back are smaller and designed for smaller pots, while the front burners are significantly bigger and stronger and can utilize a higher amount of fuel.
The Samsung NX58H5600SS also comes fitted with a 5.8-cubic-foot convection-style oven space, which will be able to cook food up to 30 percent faster than conventional ovens. The cast iron grate that covers the burners is continuous, which means that you can easily slide pots and pans back and forth between the burners without having to lift the pots up. As well as this, the grate is suitable to be popped into a dishwasher so, when it needs to be thoroughly cleaned, you have this low-maintenance option available to you.
On top of this, the oven has a top broiler, two chrome cooking racks, a proofing option, and a Sabbath mode. While in Sabbath mode, you can still operate the cooktop burners, but certain things, like timers, auto shut-off and displays are disabled, making it more cost-effective to run. The Samsung gas range also has a standard storage drawer underneath the oven, making it a nice space that is suitable for extra baking sheets and pans. It also has an auto-shutoff feature so, if you happen to forget to switch it off, this clever cooker will be able to automatically itself off if it is not being used.
How Does it Perform?
This top-quality Samsung cooker isn’t just aesthetically pleasing, it’s also a total powerhouse and is extremely high performing.
Why? Well, when compared to a conventional oven, you’ll notice that the Samsung NX58H5600SS is able to distribute heat a lot more efficiently and evenly thanks to the convection oven design. So, rather than getting ready to tuck into a tasty meal and discovering that some areas of your food are overcooked, while others are burned, you’ll be able to enjoy perfectly cooked food all the way through.
Plus, thanks to the different size burners, you’re given plenty of flexibility to cook all types of foods! They give you the opportunity to control your heat with more precision and versatility. Like we mentioned a little earlier in this review, the five burners all operate at different temperatures, allowing you to be able to perfectly time the different foods you are cooking so that they are ready to eat at the same time.
As a side note, it is worth being aware that gas burners do make a hissing sound when in operation. It’s totally normal and is even disclosed within the owner’s manual. Some people like this feature because it helps to remind them that they’ve left your cooker on. However, some find the hissing noise to be a little annoying. All in all, though it doesn’t affect the performance in any way, it may not be something that you like, so it’s important to be aware of this before you go ahead and make the purchase.
How Easy is it to Maintain?
Though this cooker is popular for its elegant design and powerful performance, it’s also well known for being a great, low maintenance option! For starters, just like every other gas range you’ll come across, you’ll be able to easily wipe over the cast iron grates, control panel, and stovetop with a damp cloth or sponge to easily wipe away grease, oil, and food.
As for the oven racks, you’ll be able to remove them from the oven and give them a good wash in your dishwasher or with some soapy water and a sponge. One of our favorite features about this model is that the oven area features a self-cleaning setting, which is a great way to prolong the amount of time it takes to give it a deeper clean.
To do this, all you need to do is switch on the button once for a 2-hour cleaning cycle, twice for a 3-hour cycle, or three times for a 4-hour cycle, depending on how rigorous you want the clean to be. The self-cleaning setting is able to wash away grease, life away crumbs, and rid the oven of all remaining residue and dirt. When the cycle is done, your oven will beep six times to let you know that it’s all done and ready to go.
After this clean, some users have noticed fine powder at the bottom of your oven. This is just food that has been burnt into ash from the high temperature and can be easily washed away with a cloth or wet sponge.
How Much is it?
The Samsung NX58H5600SS is definitely pricer than other models available on the market. Ther retail price is currently placed at $1,199.00, however, you can get it for cheaper than this, it just requires some looking around. While it’s most definitely an investment piece, we certainly think it’s worth every dime, especially thanks to its stylish design and innovative features.
Why we Love it
Delay Start Function
The first feature that we love about the Samsung NX58H5600SS is that it has a delay start option that allows you to program the oven to start cooking at a later time. This gives you the freedom to prepare your food, stick it in the oven, and then set the timer to cook at a later time if you have a phone call to make, need to take care of your children, or want to take a shower.
Oversized Oval Burner
In addition to the standard four burners, the Samsung gas range also has an oversized oval burner positioned right in the middle. This oversized burner has been specifically designed to be suitable for heating oversized pots. We love this feature because it reduces the risk of food not being cooked and warmed through properly.
Grate Indicator Marks
This is a feature that could easily go overlooked. However, these little grate indicator marks are super helpful and are able to indicate you on optimal pot placement. Thanks to this, you will be ensuring the best cooking performance and reducing the chance of any over or undercooking.
Extra Large Capacity
Another feature that we love about this cooker is its extra-large capacity oven. It allows you to cook multiple dishes at once (making it a great choice for those who cook different meals for different family members) while the wide oven racks will easily allow you to prepare enough food for large family gatherings or for a dinner party.
Unlike conventional ovens, the convection oven design of the NX58H5600SS will allow you to cook food faster and more evenly, all thanks to the heated fan system. This means that you will be able to enjoy food that is cooked all the way through, is perfectly golden brown and won’t contain any undercooked or overcooked bits!
Our Final Verdict
All in all? This cooker is pretty exceptional. If you’re thinking about purchasing it, you won’t be disappointed. Though it is placed within the mid to high price range, it’s a fantastic investment that is going to serve you for many years to come. On top of that, the burners are really powerful, and thanks to the convection-style oven, it is able to cook your food in 30 percent less time than it would take to cook using a more conventional oven. It’s self-cleaning, features a handy storage space, and even switches itself off when it’s not being used. Whether you have a large family or you live alone, the Samsung NX58H5600SS will impress you with its high-quality performance and refined design.
