The range is solidly built and looks fantastic, however care must be taken with the knobs. They are easily turned on, not so far as to ignite but far enough to release gas, when reaching for something on a back burner, operating the oven controls or merely rubbing against them when walking by. My previous range was 30 years old so I am still adjusting to electronic ignition vs. standing pilot lights and the various burners sizes and the need to match pot/pan size to burner size. Most modern ranges have this sort of configuration, however I am not yet convinced it is better. The burners tend to heat from the outside, as opposed to my old range which heated from the middle. It took me 40 minutes to cook 1 lb of pasta in a pot I normally used on the power burner, but then realized I needed a bigger pot for that burner. I used a huge stock pot instead and it was on a par with my old range - 20 minutes from turning the water on to draining the pasta. This is a clear indication that the heat is concentrated on the edges of the cookware instead of the center. The oven has worked extremely well, seems to be temperature-accurate and bakes evenly. A 9-inch double layer cake baked in exactly 35 minutes to perfection. I have not yet evaluated the convection option. Broiling must be done on the upper most rack position. Some broiling instructions in the guide indicate using the top or second from the top, however a steak cooked on the second from the top merely baked and did not broil until I moved it to the top position. The grates are extremely heavy and have a fantastic commercial look and is one of the primary reasons I chose this range over a similar competitor's model. I particularly like that the included griddle/grill (of extremely high quality seasoned cast iron) interchanges with the center grate to create a seamless look. Again, the setting recommendations in the guide had to be altered. At high, 1-1/2 lbs of boneless chicken breasts, pounded to an even 1" thickness, cooked perfectly in 16 minutes. The stove remains cool during cooking, so much so that I had to question whether or not the oven was actually hot enough when baking and broiling. The range does emit a lot of fumes during self-cleaning mode and requires significant ventialltion beyond the range hood. All in all, this appears to be a very solid and well-built range.

broken parts, uneven flames
the center flame for a griddle is useless, too low to heat any griddle, including the one supplied. the flames on all the burners have little range between very high and very low....Read complete review
the center flame for a griddle is useless, too low to heat any griddle, including the one supplied. the flames on all the burners have little range between very high and very low. Within 3 months had to replace part that supplied the spark. the things that go above the flames, that pots and pans sit on, is inconveniently designed. They interlock so you can't just lift one to clean it without taking off another.

Love the look of this range. So clean and modern.
from Abrams, WI 54101, USA
Looks clean and modern, but adds warmth to my rustic kitchen. Assembly of LP gas parts was a little bit much.
The quality is amazing so is its function. The stove out does my expectations.
