We did a complete kitchen remodel including appliances and the KitchenAid electric slide in range is the highlight of the group. We were a bit leery of the electric stove top elements, but we were delightfully surprised with not only how it looks but how quickly the elements heat and cool. It is very fluid for cooking and we both took to it like ducks to water. The oven has convection capability and that has taken some time to understand and use - but now I am baking my own bread.It is also gorgeous to look at - the glass surface has a "red-ish" tint and the surface has cleaned well with ordinary glass type cleaners. The controls are super easy to use and understand. The fact that they are on the front of the appliance would be some cause for concern, but there is a "child-safe" mode. We love it. Glad we made the decision to go with this appliance.

I am a good, what you would call a country cook, who needed a new cooking stove. After a lot of searching and looking, I decided the Kitchen Aid was my product. I love the cook top...no problem. The only disappointing thing about the new range is the abusive, shrill noise when the oven is on. Also the oven will turn back on automatically after being off about 30 minutes. We had a repairman out to look at stove and he assured us there was nothing wrong with the stove. "The awful noise is due to the way the fan is funneled to let the heat out of the oven. The stove fan, and shrill noise, turns back on to help get the heat buildup out of the oven." My habit now is to leave the oven door open about 10 or so minutes to let heat escape so as to not have the stove turn back on automatically. My guests have come in and said, "what is that awful noise?" What a disappointment that we spent a large sum of money on this product.

Disappointed with NOISY KA
from Milwaukee, WI
Comments about KitchenAid 30" Freestanding Stainless Steel Electric Range:
Purchased KESS907SSS Range, KFIS29PBMS Refrig, and KDTE334DSS dishwasher for high end, new construction. Review is based off of 2 years of ownership. Easy one first:Dishwasher - quiet, cleans well, stylish, control pad on top edge subject to inadvertent contact. This product was only reason for 2 starsRange - Had similar free standing at old house that performed well but this slide in model is different. Good features, warm up time for oven is too slow, cook top is slower than lower cost models, fan noise any time oven is on is terrible. Need to play with oven rack positions or food will burn. Two of the 4 control knobs are loose - no friction holding them to shaft. Afraid to self clean based on other reviews.Refrig - designed cabinets and granite around really good looking (inside and out) refrig. This thing is noisy... Runs almost non-stop with this piercing high pitched whine most of the time. Someone told me that Whirlpool, the manufacturer of this and several other brands had to put a sound byte on their web page to illustrate normal noises....I am concerned my appliances will fail as other reviewers described...So if you like high risk, noisy appliances (except for washer), buy Whirlpool aka Kitchen Aide.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought it two weeks ago, I live it
By tarheel gal
from North Carolina
I've lived with this range since 2013 and am disliking it more every day. The front knobs are a horrible pain and wish that I had not bought this style. The kitchen designer talked me into it, though I questioned the hassle of front knobs. She was right about everything else with our new kitchen except wrong about this range. Two MAJOR flaws: 1) there is a 2" gap in the back so you have to get a special countertop piece made to seal that opening, really really dumb. 2) we hit the front knobs all the time and have turned them on the wrong way, so we live in fear that they will accidentally be left on and cause a fire, as careful as we are. I truly detest these range and am going to have to figure out how to sell it, so I can buy a different one without front knobs. Whoever designed it was clueless.
Takes a long time to preheat oven
from Cupertino, CA
I bought this model because i have s narrow kitchen counter and kitchen and needed a range that doesn't protrude out. Newer models have 2-3 inches more depth and didn't work for me. Cooking top is ok, no complaints, hence the 3 stars. But the oven takes 20 min to preheat, that's 4 times longer than the whirlpool I had before this, very frustrated by that. Won't recommend kitchenaid, seems like their product design team doesn't get it.
second KitchenAid in 29 Years
from Trinidad, CA
this is the 2nd KitchenAid range my first was a drop-in electric that lasted and it was the best I could buy then, if this model lasts as long as the previous one did then I'm set. KitchenAid seems to build the best features into their models. thank you
What a beauty!
from Calgary, Alberta, Canada
A well built range. Control and functionality are of high standards. This unit cooks everything evenly and makes us want to cook in the kitchen more. It has a stylish design and incorporates technology to help with timing and cooking the perfect meal. I would highly recommend this range.
High pitched whine
By Quiet lover
from Venice, Florida
The very first time I turned the oven on there was a high-pitched whine. The service tech told me this noise was "normal" for Kitchen Aid/Whirlpool. The noise is very irritating and very loud. The noise comes from a cooling fan that cools the electronics. Although the range looks beautiful, it has been poorly engineered. Do not buy.
