Our old range bought the farm, so it was time to look into a new one. The basics in the range world haven't changed much, but this oven covers them all and does them well. The two large-diameter high power burners throw off tremendous heat and allow us to boil large pots of water for pasta very quickly. The middle burner is a great all-arounder and the back burners allow for great control over simmering. However, it's difficult to simmer with the front burners because the heat is high even at the lowest setting. This wasn't a problem for us. I checked the oven calibration against my own thermometer and it was spot on. It heats up quickly and displays the temp as it's heating, which is nice. Baking is very even with nice consistency from batch to batch and throughout the oven cavity. Biscuits, pizza and casseroles have all come out excellently. A nice feature is the large oven window and bright light which allow me to check on baking without opening the door (critical for consistent baking). Haven't tried the broiler or the self-cleaning cycle yet, so I can't comment on those. Overall, I feel that this range is a great value, and I'm extremely happy with the purchase so far.

We bought this range a few years back. The cooktop is great no complaints. The spark generators have worked flawlessly. Can not say the same for the oven though. As a registered gas fitter 1, my views of the workings of the product must hold some weight. When new the oven light off worked well but after about 6 months the oven would not light off. Being my trade I got out the tools and stripped the burner out to see if the cause was something simple. The lightoff assembly consists of an ignitor/ flame sense porcelein which when called into duty sparks against the gas burner igniting the gas. Once ignition has taken place a timer inside the main board flips the circuit so that flame sensing can be read and determined whether to keep the gas valve open. In my case the flame did come on but then went out after a few seconds. After 3 attempts the system locks out and shuts down the oven. I removed and cleaned the ignitor/ sensor replaced it and voila oven back in operation. Every 6 months this went on for 1 1/2 years, until finally frustrated I ordered a new assembly. I was floored by the price when the part came in and unfortunately it was identical to the original meaning that the manufacturer had not clued in that there is an inherent problem with the ignitor/sensor and that is that the sensor filiment is too small for the job. The physical size is critical for longevity.

Lot's of gas power
from Calgary, Alberta
Impressed with the rapid oven heating, and the power of heat from the burners. I mostly cook on low setting now.Only negative is the push buttons turn on by accident too easily if I reach up above the stove, my body turns on the elements.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
This product is solid!
from Austin TX
5 burners gives the feel of a large cook top in a smaller space. Self cleaning REALLY works. Ceramic top makes cleanup easy. Well built, attractive.
This is a great product.
from Los Angeles, CA
I love the self cleaning oven, also the five burners are a great features for the extra littlie pot on the stove.
from Dallas T
The 5th burner is useless. It can only be used if the pot is tiny and no larger pots are on the side burners. Wish I had thought of that before buying the range.The grates are very heavy and sit too high from the burners. Difficult to clean.
love this product
from Spring Hill , Fl
This product is fabulous compared to our old gas range. My wife really loves the ease of cleaning the surfaces. With the sealed gas burners it is extremely easy to keep clean. The cast iron grates are wonderful, they are much better quality than the old metal grates and look very good. The only item that she said should have been included with thei range was a broil pan. She kept her old one and glad she did.

Very Hard to Keep Clean
I waited a long time to buy a gas stove. I am very disappointed in this one. The 5th burner should of been in the backof the stove. You cannot use this burner when you are using the other one because the handle on your pot would burn. Also it is very hard to clean. When you cooking the white enamel turns black and is very hard to get off. I spilled salt and it burned into the enamal. When I called the store to complain, they told me to use Easy Off oven cleaner on the top. I will never buy another stove like this. Worst product I have seen in a long time.
