There are several choices that need to be made when it comes to finding the best kitchen appliance that will serve as the kitchen: What type of range to choose, what model, and what manufacturer.

The type of range will depend on the size of the room and on the existing furniture. As for the model and manufacturer, we will look at the best products of two of the biggest brands on the market, and see how they compare:

General Electric (GE)

General Electric is one of the most popular household appliance manufacturers in the world. The company is formed of several divisions, each of which focuses on the development of different types of products. Of the many household appliances developed and manufactured by GE, gas ranges are extremely popular among both professional chefs, as well as amateur cooks. 

GE produces both freestanding as well as slide-in gas ranges, however, today we will look at the best that GE has the offer, namely the GE Cafe CGS995SELSS Slide-in Gas Range.


Samsung is one of the biggest electronics manufacturers in the world. The South Korean company produces several types of electronic devices and appliances, ranging from smartphones and tablets to refrigerators and kitchen ranges. The affinity for cutting-edge technology and vast production capabilities enables the company to offer more advanced features while keeping the products’ price tags somewhat lower the competition’s.

The company produces both slide-in as well as freestanding gas ranges, however, in order to keep the comparison fair, the best slide-in gas range model that Samsung has to offer has been chosen: Samsung NX58H9500WS.

GE Cafe CGS995SELSS Slide-in Gas Range


  • 6.7 cubic feet total oven space;
  • Dual oven;
  • Lower convection oven;
  • Electronic ignition system;
  • True Temperature System;
  • Wi-Fi oven control;
  • Self-cleaning oven;
  • Stainless steel cooktop surface;
  • 6 Burners - 21,000 BTU Tri-ring, 15,000 BTU, 12,000 BTU, 5,000 BTU, 2 x 9,500 BTU center;  
  • Digital display and controls;
  • Front panel controls;

Samsung NX58H9500WS


  • 5.8 cubic feet oven;
  • 5 burners with True Dual Power Burner design ranging from 18,000 BTU to 5,000 BTU;
  • Custom Wok Grate;
  • Temperature probe;
  • Digital Front Panel Controls;
  • Warming Drawer;

How do they compare and which one is the best?

Both models are made using durable materials, and both have largely the same features when it comes to cooktop functionality. However, the Samsung NX58H9500WS does fall behind when considering that it only has one oven that offers a smaller space than the overall size of the two that the GE model has.

Furthermore, the GE Cafe CGS995SELSS Slide-in Gas Range has more quality-of-life features that allow the owner to control the oven from a distance, or to clean the appliance without effort.

All things considered, the GE Cafe CGS995SELSS Slide-in Gas Range is a better choice than the Samsung NX58H9500WS both in terms of cooktop and oven features, as well as additional functionality; it offers 6 powerful burners, two ovens, and the possibility to control the cooking process using Wi-Fi.
