I purchased this range more than 60 days ago. To date, I have absolutely no complaints. I love the large glass oven door, which allows me to check on my baked items without opening the door and releasing heat. Having five burners is also a major plus. Although I was originally concerned about keeping the black range top clean, I have found that as long as I clean it after every use it sparkles and shines just like new. I purchased a silicone mat to place on the bottom of the oven and that has proven to be a life saver. Instead of having to clean the baked on spills after Thanksgiving all I had to do was remove the mat and sweep the gunk right into the trash. Overall, I love this Range.

This range has performed fairly well for the last 8 months.The burners are pretty hot, it is hard to do anything on a low simmer. I have to put the pans on the smallest burner on the lowest setting to avoid burning or over cooking for meals that require a long slow simmer. I love the large metal grates vs. the usual individual burner grates.The oven heats up well and cooks pretty evenly, no complaints about cooking performance, WHEN IT STARTS. I had the unit for about 6 months when the electronic spark ignition system stopped lighting the gas. Maytag honored their warranty and replaced the system, but I have a feeling that this will be a problem that re-occurs. I ended up buying the extended warranty, but I do not feel like I should have to do this. That is the reason for the low marks on quality. Evidently, these electronic spark ignitions break all the time, and are not nearly as reliable as the old glow bar type ignitions. Why they decided to use this unreliable system is beyond me.The design is good and it looks nice in the kitchen.

Love this stove!
By Motown Gal
Comments about Maytag MGR8674AS Stainless Steel 30" Free Standing Gas Range:
Love the large, heavy grills - plenty of room for pots and pans. Prefer the black stove top to our previous white one. Everything cleans up easily. This baby has lots of power - cooks food in no time.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased gas range 2 months ago & I love how it bakes. A turndial for the bake time would be easier to use.Unfortunately, back of range does not fit flush against thewall & it cost an additional $352.00 for a plumber to move gas line for proper fit. $ I saved on BlackFiday sale wentto the plumber!Maytag dimensions same as gas range being replaced, BUT not one salesman from several different appliance stores explained that the back of new gas ranges are made dfferently & it would not fit flush against the wall.I learned an exensive lesson. I suggest you measure how many extra inches rangecould extend beyond cabinets before you make apurchase.
A decent gas range
By I don't have a nickname !!!
The hardest thing for us to learn is the operation of the keypad. The keypad could be explained a lot better in the manual,but we are getting the hang of it thru trial and error.
from Exeter, NH
The Low temperature on the top burners burns everything. Nothing simmers on the lowest setting.
Love the look
from West Jordan, UT
I bought this just a month ago, and I am very happy with it. I love the high end look. I did have to adjust the oven temperature up, but now it is great. I am also thrilled that it has a storage drawer. So many in the price range do not. It looks great and works great!
oven runs 50 degrees cool
from 431 molyneaux rd camden, maine
except that the stove oven seems to run 50 degrees below what it should. We bought an oven thermometer to confirm our suspicions. Is there an adjustment?
Excellent range for the serious cook.!
from Matherville, Illinois
There's is no need to purchase more expensive "professional home appliances" with this range. The five burners offer all the BTU ranges needed, from hot stir fry to slow and low simmer and so far the simmer level stays exactly where I put it for the entire cooking time. The convection oven offers even baking temperatures throughout the oven. Both my wife and I cook although, she's more creative. We both love this stove. It's easy to keep clean too.
Maytage natural gas range/oven
By The old man
from Centerville, IA
We wanted to reduce our utilities bill (all electric) and thought a natural gas oven/range would be more economical. Also, it seems that it is better to cook with gas rather than electric.
Very nice oven, heats quckly
from North Plainfield, NJ
Bought this 3 months ago and have had no problems with it. Most remarkable is how quickly it gets to temperature, and rapidly adjusts upward while cooking. Underneath storage drawer is small but that allows for more oven space, which I really like. The oven window is large and the light is bright so you can really see how things are cooking without opening the door. Convection works nicely with reduced cook time at lower temperature. Controls are as easy as any oven I have seen. Only design drawback is oven vents are near the knobs for the stovetop, so they can get hot. otherwise, seems very reliable and attractive looking.
I am very pleased with this purchase.
from Lewes, DE
We took delivery of this range less than a month ago. My husband and I both cook,but have not used the convection oven yet. Hope to do so soon.
