slippery burner grates
from Buffalo Grove, IL
About Me Casual Cook
Comments about Maytag MGR7661W Stainless Steel 30" Free Standing Gas Range:
I love the look of this range, and especially liked the glossy black grates on the burners when we saw it in the store. Unfortunately, I'm finding the glossiness is the reason they are so slippery! Pots and pans slide easily on the burners. I'm afraid one of these days, one will slide right off the stovetop. I called Maytag and they claim they've never heard of this problem, yet when looking online, I see it's a very common problem. No wonder many ranges now come with the ugly gray grates that look like they were intended for outdoor grills. There are no replacement grates for this model. As for how it cooks, it is fine. My only hope is that the grates will roughen up with time. I could sand them a bit, but then there goes the pretty finish.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The stove is amazing. Sent back a GE and also a Kenmore unit from Sears to buy this one from ABT. Best choice ever. ABT carries the best brands at the best price.

Don't buy! Poorly designed ignition.
Turn on the right front burner -- it clicks and clicks and clicks, and then the left rear burner might start up. Maybe. Or nothing will start and you just fill the room with gas. Only way to get a flame is with a lighter. Very unsafe and frustrating to use. We've had repair guys out twice in three weeks to try and get the burners to ignite reliably, as the electronics were flawed, but the real problem with this entry-level model is the design of the igniters. We are upgrading to a model that has a burner reignition feature. I would avoid this model at all costs.
