Whirlpool Black Slide-In Gas Range, Model GW397BK

This self-cleaning, slide-in gas range offers 4.5 cu. ft. of oven space. The AccuBake® temperature management system provides consistent cooking temperatures, while a Keep Warm setting maintains serving temperatures. On top, 4 burners ignite electronically. A 14,000 BTU Power™ burner quickly sears steaks, stir-fry veggies or boils water. Plus, full-width grates provide the ultimate in surface flexibility.

Features:

  • Full-Width Burner Grates
    New easy-to-clean and dishwasher-safe grates span the entire cooktop for more flexibility. The satin finish resists wear and provides a smoother look and feel
  • Die-Cast Console
    The new console is tilted to an ergonomic angle that keeps it out of the reach of small children. The flush design provides a smoother surface for cleaning
  • 4.5 Cu. Ft. Oven Capacity
    Our largest-capacity slide-ins yet offer expanded oven capacity to handle oversized cooking jobs
  • Power™ Burners
    Generate the high heat needed for rapid boiling, searing, and frying - up to 16,000 BTUs
  • AccuBake® Temperature Management System
    Surrounds food with even temperatures for consistent results. A sensor monitors the oven temperature, turning on the bake element, the broil element or both simultaneously to achieve uniform baking results
  • Large Oven Window
    Set into a frameless door design, the new window is 40% larger than our previous model
  • Self-Cleaning System
    Automatically cleans the oven according to a preprogrammed cycle. No harsh chemicals or cleaners are required

I have been using this range for over two weeks and it is enjoyable to use. The continuous grate is a wonderful feature as well as the accusimmer burner. The oven bakes very evenly. The entire range top including control panel is easy to wipe clean. I haven't used the self cleaning feature or had to put the grates in the dishwasher yet, but anticipate those to be easy processes. The only weakness I see is the slides on the bottom storage drawer. Could the manufacturer spend about $10 more and make that drawer with better supports? I won't store anything in it since it doesn't slide well. Overall, I can recommend this appliance.

We searched for months for the "perfect stove". This is not it! The stove top cooking surface is very small. You cannot fit a normal size skillett and a small pot behind it. The cooking surface will only accommodate 2 pots or 2 skillets sitting side by side. It is impossible to cook 4 containers of food at the same time. I am so disappointed! We cooked one medium size pot of soup and the pad under the grate leg melted. We had the fire on medium to low. Also, it takes the oven a very long time to reach the desired temperature. We had this stove installed on 4/16/2012 and have regretted this purchase every day.

    Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Steel Slide-In Gas Range:

    "Gorgeous" were the first words out of my wife's mouth. Replaced a 20 year old, white GE Profile and now all appliances are stainless steel. Very becoming.
    Converted from natural gas to propane myself within an hour. I did have to lower the low setting on all burners slightly for simmering as they were a bit high. Also an easy adjustment with the right screw driver.
    ***Be dimensionally aware*** The control panel and oven door protrude further past the counter edge than the GE Profile requiring me to adjust a cabinet door adjacent to the stove (difference between distance E and F on installation diagram)

    5 Star Gorgeous!!!

          "Gorgeous" were the first words out of my wife's mouth after accepting delivery. Converted it to propane and installed it myself replacing an older GE Profile slide in. Perfectly matched the cut-out. It's only been installed 2 days but have used all features and we are delighted!!
          NOTE: Pay close attention to the distance the front panel and oven handle protrude (the difference between measurement E and F is just over 4 and a half inches). I had a drawer that would no longer pull out as it would hit the control panel and a cabinet that was impeded by the oven door handle.
          Still... what a "gorgeous" unit!!!

              We are very pleased with this range. Installation was fairly simple and straight forward. The features are typical foir most gas ranges. The burners heat evenly and steady. There was a bit of confusion on which burner was the Accusimmer as the knob and the manual were different. We complimented this beautiful range with a Whirlpoon range hood. The look is very custom.

                Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Steel Slide-In Gas Range:

                This slide-in range was installed in late December 2013 to replace an older similar Whirlpool product. Less than 3 months later, and with careful, normal but very infrequent household use due to extensive travel since, the black enameled porcelain(?) cooktop has stain marks that cannot be removed with ANY recommended product. The finish has actually been attacked by the drips. The latest two drip spots that have marred the surface were from spilled pasta water, of all things!!! It is indicative of an issue of very poor finish durability and overall quality. A minor unrelated inconvenience is the close packing of the four burners, which makes use of adjacent burners difficult, particularly if large pots and pans are used. Considering that much of the perimeter of the top is unused, that is a poor design choice.

                Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Steel Slide-In Gas Range:

                Buying a product made in America led me to believe that the quality of the unit would be higher than the competition. Instead, the door of the range is not parallel with the walls, the drawer is made of chincy thin metal, and the sides of the unit appear to be too thin. The clock on the range cannot be seen except when you are standing directly over the unit.

                        I cook almost all the family meals at home and over the years have had several ranges and this Whirlpool is by far the best. One time we owned a Bed/Breakfast and I continue to bake and the oven appears to be at the correct temperature. Also cook many slow cooked foods so the simmer feature is perfect and like that the burners are different sizes so I can tell at a glance the degree of heat. One thing I would have liked is an indicator that the range is ON because of the low flame on the simmer and not recognizing it is ON. A lot of research went into the selection and was the best product for my budget and circumstances. Thank you Whirlpool!

And when I am done cooking, it literally takes me a couple minutes to clean the appliance. Even my husband figured out how to use it!
