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.

Unreliable. Don't buy!
By Unhappy customer
from Plainfield, IL
Comments about Maytag MGR8674AS Stainless Steel 30" Free Standing Gas Range:
I bought this range in January 2014. After a year the oven would sometimes go out while the temperature indicator still showed the set temperature. Sometimes doesn't stay lit, other times won't come on. Totally unreliable. Ruined Thanksgiving. Scanning other reviews, this seems to be a common problem on this and other similar models.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

A Great Stove
By Big Gary
from Vallejo, Ca.
My wife wanted a new stove, so she did some online looking for a brand new stove, and found the Maytag stove, but we found that just a little more money spend at a local,"Big Boy Store", my wife is very happy with her new stove, and the feature of the stove, will go off when the stove alarm goes off, that is a great safety feature, to prevent a house fire.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Aqua Clean Oven a Disappointment
from Santa Fe, NM
Although I love most of the features of my new Maytag range I was very disappointed with the Aqua Clean feature. After pouring 1 3/4 cups of water onto the oven floor I pushed the Self Clean button and waited the appropriate amount of time only to discover that I then had to get on my hands and knees and get inside the oven to finish scraping off all the stuff the "self clean" function DID NOT REMOVE!! This was very disappointing and the WORST "self clean" oven I've ever owned. I should have done more research!!!!
Love this stove!
By Motown Gal
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.
This is a great range and we love it!
from Spokane, WA
There are so many features we love about this range I can't list all of them. But there is one thing I think Maytag needs to consider. When using the oven, the range top burner knobs get so hot you can't touch them. Seems like they could have diverted the heat to the back or sides? I would have given 5 stars if not for this one minor issue.
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?
