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.

Give it some gas and it really speeds up cooking!
By Den Ham
from Terre Haute, IN
because I switched from an electric range back to gas. Love the the commercial look with a normal range size. Like the bold design, round handle, large oven window, convection oven and middle 5th burner. Only issue is the front knobs get quite hot when using the oven and don't know yet how the water oven cleaning feature works. Similar features to the Frigidaire professional and Kitchenaid ranges but at a budget price. Liked the 10 year warranty. Replaced a Frigidaire 45 inch electric range with double ovens.

We purchased this oven about a month ago and it arrived with an oven that wouldn't heat. The range worked so we knew it wasn't the gas line. We had to called Maytag warranty and the soonest a repair person could come out was almost 3 weeks later. The repair guy had to order a new part and when it arrived, it fixed the oven so it worked. It is my opinion Maytag should have tested the oven before sending it out. Now that the oven works here is what I think. It does what it needs to do, is it fancy - NO! The range dials become hot to the touch when you have the oven on. The oven heats up quickly and does a great job. The 5 burners are nice, but I do wish that they had put one larger burner in the back instead of them both in the front at the front of the range. The middle burner (along with griddle purchased from another vendor) don't really heat evenly like I had hoped so making pancakes is less than ideal. This same griddle didn't have this problem with a Kitchen Aid stove I had at another home. The metal around the burners are quick to brown and hard to clean. I think it is a good value for the price, but if you are doing a kitchen remodel and are prepared to spend some money on appliances, I'd pick another line.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We like the clean white look.The burners are great with two of them being so powerful - it's amazing.We also like the way pots can slide from one burner to another without having to pick up the pot.

I have only had this for 2 weeks now but really love this range. The convection oven cooks evenly. I love the deep sliding rack and the extra large oven window. The different size burners are perfect for different cooking needs.

We are so happy with this range. The stove is wonderful and the burners are perfect. it heats very nicely and we are completely satisfied and so glad we choose this range.
Best stove I have ever owned

The Best Stove I have ever had
By Mrs Olson
from Fond du Lac
Easy to read controls - Nice Big oven - Easy to clean. After a week of use, I called the store where I purchased and complained the flame on the lowest setting was not any different than the medium setting. They scheduled a service man to adjust the flame with a special small screwdriver from low to high. Now I have complete control of the heat appreciating a VERY low simmer or a high flame when needed.
from Newalla, OK
I bought this for my husband as he loves to cook. He loves having the 5th burner & the full grates makes moving pots a breeze. Oven is huge which leaves lots of room for large items along with the smaller dishes.
