The only down side for this cooker is the color. i bought a black one and it is very difficult to keep looking clean. I love the oven cleaning feature, it is amazing and so easy to use. I also love the convection oven. The oven overall is large and can accommodate a ton of stuff.

I've been using this oven for about a year now so my review is on the picky side! :) Pros: - Looks very nice - Large capacity Cons: - Convection feature has 5 minute delay before fan starts. If you want switch on the convection fan for the last few minutes of a bake, in order to brown something, you need to wait 5 minutes before the fan starts. If you accidentally turn off the oven, when you turn it back on, you will need to wait another 5 minutes before convection fan will run, even if the oven is up to temp. Makes no sense. - The convection feature is more of a gimmick as the fan isn't powerful enough to have any noticeable effect. I used to have Jenn-Air that worked far far better. - Cooktop burners don't have any flame in the center. This results in the flame being too wide in diameter for most standard pots and pans. The flame shoots out around the perimeter of the pot instead of concentrating heat evenly underneath. Because of this, it takes longer to boil water on the 17k & 15k btu burners than the standard using a med-large saucepan. - Control panel is haphazardly laid out. For instance, the oven light button, is buried between the Clean and Time Cook functions. Seems like one would use the oven light more frequently than the Clean cycle. - Control knobs are cheap plastic and don't really match the rest of the stove. - Not important, but when you open the oven door, all the various stickers (model info, warnings etc.) are all really crooked. These labels are going to be there for the life of the oven, why not just put them on reasonably straight? Overall it's not a bad stove, it looks great and works fine for basic cooking. I purchased this model mostly because of the Convection feature but it's not what I expected.

If you like to use your oven I don't recommend this one.
Comments about Maytag MGR8775AS Stainless Steel 30" Free Standing Gas Range:
We bought this oven just in time for thanksgiving. I quickly realized that the temperature was off. So we followed the directions to calibrate the oven and we were able to get the temperature with in about 20 degrees. So we had a tech from maytag come out and look at the oven. He said that with this oven if you set it at 325 the oven turns on heats up to 325 then the oven burn shuts off it will cool down and then the oven burn relights heats up again. The temp will range 100 degrees up or down at all times. The problem with this poorly designed oven is that it doesn't cook things consistently. Terrible! I'm very disappointed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Every thing about it is great....
from GRAND RAPIDS MI
I love my new gas range!!!! I now can make rice like a pro, thanks to the simmer burner. It also is great for making soup that is best on a low simmer. Every thing I cook on the burner turns out so much better because of the different size burners and settings......My new Maytag has made me a better cook after 47 years of marriage....
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Great value and style.
from Brea, Ca
Excellent capacity, even cooking temps and nice burner control. I like the all one level grates on the range, great feature.
excellent design and performance capabilities
from Smyrna, GA
I love my new stove and oven and have been extremely pleased with the performance. I find the stove top grate design to be superb. And performance of the oven has met all of my expectations.
love the large oven
from watertown ny
After doing alot of looking i found this to be the best on the market the high burner is great for boiling water and the center burner is a great idea and love the contuine grate so easy to just slide your pans across the top......and the oven really is the best of all for baking a whole batch of cookies at one time or roasting a roast and room for a cake and a casarole all at the same time
Nice looking, if you can clean it!
from Foster, RI
This stove is beautiful, but that's if you can keep it clean! The surface is black, which means that everything will show up on it. Lint, pet hair,water stains, and cleaning products will smear. I've cried many a tear trying to clean it, definitely brings out the ocd in me. Cooks like a champ though...
Stove works fine
from St. Louis, MO
No problems with the gas stove. Everything works fine. Black is a difficult color to keep clean, but that is no reflection on the product. Stove is quiet. I would tend to believe that all gas stoves should be quiet, for a noisy gas stove would be a harbinger of a gas leak.
We buy only Maytag appliances made in America
We buy only Maytag appliances made in America. I was sad to part with my older Maytag stove after decades of use and did not think Maytag could make a better stove, but they have! This stove is designed perfectly and is energy efficient as well. The convection oven heats evenly and the temperature is very stable.

It is easy to operate and easy to clean.
from Huntsville, Alabama
Starting from the top, the control face is easy to read and the selections such as the oven light, the convection feature and timer are easy to operate. I thoroughly dislike feeling like I need to go back to school for an engineering degree just to operate an electrical device - and this stove does not do that. It has very logical operational characteristics. Heck, my cell phone is a lot harder to operate than this range. The burner units and racks are easy to remove and the surfaces are easy to clean. The oven is HUGE. I think we'll roast a whole pig in there for Christmas this year. Great Stove! Thanks.
from Grand Rapids, MI
I'm generally pleased, but ideally I'd like one more simmer burner. This burns food fast! Buyers should know that the top is black, not stainless (I didn't notice this in the on-line photo.) Fortunately, the black darkness under the (heavy) grates hides the spills so you don't have to clean as much as you might (if you can tolerate a little mess in your kitchen).
