Comments about Whirlpool Black 30" Free-Standing Gas Range:
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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

About Me Avid Cook
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.

Great so far!
from New Jersey
My only problems with this stove, are that the cooking surface smudges easily and is not east to keep clean. The 3 front burners do not have a low setting, and are too high for most things that I cook. If I need to cook with a low setting, I have to use the two back burners, which I feel should be in the front.

great product great price
from Lynbrook, NY
I enjoy this product very much and I have to say getting it at ABT Electronics I got the best price. The only complaint i have about this item is that it is almost impossible to use all burners at once the surface area is too small other than that the product meets all my demands.

I love this range! It heats up very quickly and cooks the food evenly. I don't have anything negative to say.
