Gemini Range - Nice features, poorglass top, busy dashboard controls & layout
from Maili, Oahu, HI
Comments about Maytag Gemini 30" Double Oven Free Standing Electric Range:
Love the double-oven setup, and it works quite well. A few drawbacks: the oven controls are unnecessarily complex (LOTS of buttons - like the dashboard on a new car), and the rangetop burner sizes are quite odd. Almost like it's set up for some sort of metric cookware. The two tiny burners are in the back, one large and one HUGE burner in the front. They're OK once you get used to them, but the burner controls are arranged oddly so that I'm always turning on the wrong one at first. Otherwise - the ovens work very well, temperature controls are great.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

There are several problems with this stove. First the extra large burner is not necessary. It's just a hassle and causes handles to begin to melt and make your kitchen smelly. I always cook with two pans and can't avoid using it. Second are the open vents just behind the handles on the glass door panels. Because of the heat while baking, small dust particles get sucked into the space inbetween the oven glass and the outer beauty glass cover. In certain light and during the day when the sun shines in my kitchen, the stove doors look filthy and you can't get it out. Water and other liquids can easily to drip right down inbetween the glass if you're not careful. I spilled some gravy on the cooktop and upon wiping it away, the rag hung over the front of the door and gravy went right inbetween the glass and stayed there in a long ugly streak for almost a year. I finally couldn't take it anymore and had to have my husband tear apart the entire door just to get behind the glass. It was a huge project and very frustrating. Very bad design. The glass should be totally enclosed air tight.
Double oven makes all the difference
from Hartford, CT
Upper oven is awesome, from baking to toasting and reheating. I use the loser oven only around the holidays for big things like turkeys and large roasts. The upper oven does the job for just about everything else. Every oven should have this set-up. The cook top is real nice, although I think the 12" burner is too big, would rather have two 9's. If your pot or pan is smaller than the 12" it doesn't work well. Burners heat quickly and evenly. Would buy this again in a heartbeat.
I would buy this product everytime!!!

I searched for more than two years to find exactly what I wanted/needed before replacing my old range. This model came to me first and I stuck with it for the entire search process. It really is my dream range!First I love the ceramic top and Maytag has an unbeatable repair/replacement policy.The double-oven feature is a keeper. But the most convenient and useful feature is the fact that the smaller one-rack oven (which heats up very, very quickly) is on top so I don't have to bend over. I use it numerous times daily for small things, like you would use a toaster oven, except of course it's a bit bigger than the old toaster oven that I disposed of when I got this new oven (more cabinet space available now!!!).Whether it's every day use or for big dinners at holiday time, this is the last kind of range I would ever want. I still love it after a year's worth of use.
My wife is extremely happy!!!!

Preheats very quickly. Love every feature. If you have an electric stove top and it isn't a ceramic glass top you don't know what you are missing. Two ovens may not be enough all the time :) but it is really nice to have two parts of a meal complete at the same time. Could be easier to set two seperate timers for the ovens. Oh did I mention it has TWO ovens!!
