Samsung Presents Induction Range FTQ307 - Best In Class

Understanding that today's home cook is looking to save time, energy and money in the kitchen, Samsung Electronics America Inc., a market leader and award-winning innovator in consumer electronics and home appliances, today announced the availability of its first induction range. The Samsung FTQ307 Induction Range is now available in stainless steel at select retailers for just $1,999, and will be widely available later in September.

"Our induction range provides consumers with a new choice for time-saving, energy-efficient cooking at an exceptional value," said James Politeski, vice president home appliance sales and marketing, Samsung Electronics America. "We believe this range will help further establish Samsung's role as a leader in the home appliance market because it delivers tremendous value and is one of the smartest and most accurate ranges to enter the U.S. market. We are offering consumers a full induction range with true convection and a warming drawer at the same price as some stand-alone induction cooktops."

Growing in popularity in the United States, induction cooking uses electromagnetic energy to heat only the cookware, allowing food to cook quickly. When developing its induction range, Samsung designers focused on five key areas:

  • Fast & Efficient Cooking - Through its rapid heating feature, Samsung's 4-element induction range can reduce cooking time compared to conventional cooktops. An innovative three-fan true convection system in the 5.9 cu. ft. oven cooks food more evenly, making it ideal for baking and broiling. A 1.4 cu. ft. warming drawer offers three levels of heat for perfectly timed meals.
  • Easy & Precise Controls - Samsung's SelecTouchTM control system allows for easy and precise control of the cooking power, just like a gas range. The easy-to-use and stylish touch slide control panel allows home cooks to simply choose the appropriate power level with the glide of a finger.
  • Incredible Value - With a retail price of just $1,999, Samsung offers a complete induction range with true convection and a warming drawer at the same price as some stand-alone induction cooktops.
  • Cool to the Touch -Induction heat is transmitted directly to the pan and nowhere else - the rest of the cooktop surface remains cool to the touch. Samsung's induction range will not activate unless a pan at least five inches in diameter is placed on the cooktop. It will also switch off if no cookware is placed on it within 30 seconds, offering further peace of mind.
  • Fast & Easy Cleaning - The cooler cooking surface helps prevent spills and overflows from caking up, making them easy to clean off the flat and smooth cooking surface. The oven offers self clean and 20 minute SteamQuick cycles.
