Samsung is a brand that’s well known for its quality products and their NX58H5600SS range is no different. It’s a feature-rich gas range that has earned a lot of positive feedback and high ratings from customers that have used it.

A large percentage of the users were really pleased with the performance of both the stovetop and the oven as well as the huge oven capacity that it offered.

Stovetop Performance

The stovetop of the Samsung NX58H5600SS range has 5 sealed burners that almost every user agreed that they are quite powerful and provide great flexibility in terms of heating styles. 

All the burners have different sizes and different heat outputs. The two back burners deliver consistent low to moderate heat that users said work well for simmering things like rice.

The large central burner with an oval shape was also appealing to most users since it provides more even heating over a large area which they found to be perfect for griddle or oval skillet cooking. 

The two front burners received a lot of praise too for the intense heat that they produced. Users said they heat up extremely fast and provide a powerful heat that allows for quicker, intensive cooking ideal for searing, sautéing or rapid boiling of water.

The stovetop also has a very substantial rail grate that completely covers all the burners creating a continuous surface that users said makes it easy and safe to slide heavy pans and pots around without struggling to lift them. 

Oven Performance

The oven performance was equally impressive. The majority of users liked it particularly because of its huge 5.8 cu. ft. capacity which is amongst the largest oven capacity available on the market. 

It can accommodate large roast pans or sheet pans allowing you to prepare multiple dishes at once, or enough meals for a party or a large family gathering. 

The oven itself heats up quickly and evenly as many users mentioned. It also has dual convection settings (bake and roast) which users found convenient because it gives them the flexibility to prepare perfect roasted standing ribs or evenly baked desserts. 

However, we noted some complaints from several users that the oven stopped heating after just a year of use, a problem they attributed to the igniter which failed to ignite the gas.  

The other issue we noted from the comments of users is that the range gives off very hot air under the control knobs panel when the oven is running which is likely to cause burns when touched or using the knobs. 

That said, Samsung has included a griddle in this NX58H5600SS range and users found it very useful as it’s large with a non-stick surface that works well for making fried eggs, pancakes, grilled sandwiches and similar foods.  

The griddle also has curved edges that users said help prevent food from falling off onto the cooktop. The downside is that it’s quite large. Several users pointed out that it occupies a lot of space on the cooktop restricting you from using some of the burners while it’s in place.

Operating the Unit

Operating the Samsung NX58H5600SS range is easy. The oven features a simple touch control while the stovetop utilizes knobs for control both of which are easy to use. There were a few complaints though that the knobs started falling off after a couple of months. 

This is because they are made of chromed plastic which users said tend to expand and contract after a long bake, and eventually crack and fall off over time. 

Another issue is that the unit is not equipped with a timer. You have to guess how long to cook things and it as well lacks a temperature probe. 

Despite this, the range does come with several useful extra features like the sabbath mode (which is essential for those who observe the Sabbath), delay bake function, proofing function, interior oven light and a digital temperature display.

Cleaning and Overall Build Quality

Cleaning this unit is not that challenging although some users mentioned that grease can easily accumulate below the burners. Even so, the whole grate comes out for easy cleaning below the burners and the grate itself can be cleaned in a dishwasher.

The oven has a self-cleaning mode and the door is removable too hence cleaning it is a breeze. As for the build quality, users agreed that the whole structure of the unit (except for the knobs) is very solid. The front, back and sides are all made of heavy-duty metal.

Moreover, the unit has a bottom storage drawer but it seems shallow according to comments from users which means it may not be that useful. It also tends to drag on the floor when it’s partially pulled out as pointed out by some users.

The black stainless finish is not durable either. Users have mentioned that it flakes and peels off the range over time. It’s the same case with the grates as the coating flakes off leaving pitting and rust in some of the parts.   

Overall, the performance and functionality of this Samsung NX58H5600SS range are wonderful and there is a lot of positive feedback from users to back that. It has a few glitches that are worth noting but generally, it’s a nice standard range for everyday cooking. 

Value

The Samsung NX58H5600SS model seems to fare pretty well when put side to side with other similar ranges from other brands within the same category and price range. 

A good example is the LG LRG3061ST gas range which is quite similar to it in terms of design and functionality. However, the power output of its burners is slightly lower plus it lacks the self-cleaning mode for the oven. 

Besides that, it doesn’t have the oven specialty settings that the Samsung NX58H5600SS model has such as the delay start, Sabbath mode, proofing mode and speed cook. 

The Frigidaire FCRG3052AS range is another model that shares the same category with Samsung NX58H5600SS model but this too falls short in terms of the power output of the burners and also requires manual cleaning for the oven. 

It equally lacks the specialty settings that the Samsung NX58H5600SS model has. Moreover, the oven doesn’t use convection cooking. It utilizes a standard baking process that users didn’t find to be as effective as the convection baking of Samsung NX58H5600SS. 

The GE Adora JGB720SEJSS range is one of the models that seemed on par with the Samsung NX58H5600SS in this mid-level category. 

They almost have the same price tag but the GE Adora JGB720SEJSS offers a bit more power output for the rapid boil burner (18,000 BTU)  – the NX58H5600SS model offers 17,000 BTU. It also comes with a steam clean mode which lacks in the Samsung NX58H5600SS model. 

Like LG LRG3061ST and Frigidaire FCRG3052AS models though, it doesn’t have oven specialty settings (delay start, Sabbath mode, proofing mode and speed cook) which is where the Samsung NX58H5600SS range beats it.

Alternatives

The NX58H5600SS model is one of the cheapest models in the mid-level category as well as in Samsung’s gas range lineup. However, if you are looking to upgrade, then the next best option would be the Samsung NX58M6630SS model.

Upgrade
Samsung NX58M6630SS

It’s only a little pricier than the NX58H5600SS model but upgrading to it you get increased power output for the rapid boil burner (18,000 BTU) and the front left burner (16,000 BTU) – the NX58H5600SS offers 17,000 BTU and 15, 000 BTU power output for the same burners. 

You also get additional features like delay start, timer, illuminated knobs and 3 oven racks (the NX58H5600SS model has 2). However, it lacks the griddle which is included in the NX58H5600SS.

Should you want to go even further, then the Samsung NX58M6850SS range would be a great pick. With this model, you get two oven sections that are equipped with flex duo convection fans that ensure faster, more uniform, and very consistent heating in both ovens.

In addition, unlike both the Samsung NX58H5600SS and the NX58M6630SS ranges, this Samsung NX58M6850SS model is a smart range equipped with Wi-Fi connectivity. 

You can remotely monitor and control the dual oven using your smartphone and the Wi-Fi connectivity. The unit as well has a soft close dual door that’s removable (NX58H5600SS has a single door which is not removable).

You also get a timer, delay start and all the other extra features that the NX58H5600SS has. The downside though is that the power output of its rapid boil burner is slightly low (16,000 BTU). Apart from that, it doesn’t come with a temperature probe, griddle and the proofing function.
