Love our new Whirlpool Oven/Range (and over-range Microwave)! Not only are they beautiful in my newly remodeled kitchen, but they also work better than i'd expected. I read a few reviews online and found some comments about the beeping noises being too loud, like when the oven temperature has reached its temp after warming, or the microwave final beep sounds. I found that my new Whirlpool appliances worked perfectly fine and was not too loud at all (well maybe if you're trying to tiptoe through and not wake up anyone in a near by bedroom, i on the other hand do expect the sounds to alert me and not be low whispers). As for the cooking/baking power, my meals suddenly seemed perfectly timed and perfectly cooked/baked through on the right temperatures, yielding the right textures and all. Our old oven/range didn't seem to cause problems, until i now compare it to these new additions in my life. The Thanksgiving Turkey cooked through thoroughly and there was no guessing about when the oven reached its correct temperature from the initial warming. the timer is awesome and so are the light functions to see everything clearly. The fan power on the over-range microwave and light function has two levels so if one is too noisy or too bright for you, you still have a lighter option. Also there's a bottom storage drawer that i make sure is empty before baking (read some reviews where ppl stored pans and the handles melted, i only store glass bakeware there but still I empty it out for good measure). The burners are great and perfect with two large and two medium (or small depending on how you see it). Also i did not find that the grates were too heavy as i'd read in other reviews. We're absolutely Loving every inch of our new Whirlpools. Being in the kitchen is fun again :-)

So my landlord got this oven and upon first glance I fell in love. It was actually my neighbors first and I ate at the neighbors house plenty to know it was an amazing oven (I was happy when I got it bc I knew I would use the bells and whistles a lot more than she did). Well, not soon after I got it in my place, the oven started having problems starting up, just the bottom element. I thought maybe it was because they added an attachment, like maybe there was air in the line so I got the landlord over once - it started immediately, we forgot about it. It happened again about a month later, he got a repair man out who informed me (after I said I didn't understand, it worked perfectly next door and the issues are so random) that it appears to be an issue that about 10-20% of people with this model have that something gets loose, its a 'simple' (for repair men) fix with a screw driver, but otherwise the oven doesn't always start and it just keeps happening. It was working great for a few weeks but then every few months, it wouldn't work for a few minutes, a few hours, a few days, a full week. Its absolutely annoying :/ I have had to resort to throwing away food I had ready to cook, hoping the oven would just start already, but after getting ridiculously hungry, ending up going for fast food (and sometimes just forgetting the food is in there). I have gotten seriously frustrated because for the most part, there isn't anything outrageously wrong for me to get my landlord to pay a repair man, or to replace it, it doesn't happen daily, but it happens enough that its just...depressing anymore :/ Just tonight it took me an hour to get it started for dinner. I have even invested in a toaster oven for the days the oven doesn't start so I can still cook the food instead of it going to waste. Besides that and how impossible it is to keep clean though, I love the oven, it cooks perfectly, I love the variable range temps, the broiler is fantastic, etc. (and by impossible to keep clean I just mean bc mine is black and black shows everything, its actually FANTASTIC about actively cleaning, I actually got some cheese on the inside of the oven door, caked on, gooey, etc and I was able to use a dry, cheap napkin without any product on it to wipe it off, came off without even trying. And when you use the self-clean its like scrubbing it top to bottom without having to lift a finger, just wipe it out after). The only other real complaint I have is for setting the timers and such. I don't like how weird it is, you hit start to start a time only timer, but hit the timer to end it (I think, I seriously can't even keep it all straight, its not really consistent). I am used to hitting timer to set the timer, and so forth, and cancel just cancels about everything. It just gets annoying when I go to set a timer, make a mistake, and end up turning off the oven somehow before it even starts cooking. I don't even use the cook one anymore because sometimes it turns off when it is done, and sometimes it doesn't. And the final issue with that is when I hold down the timer, it jumps from 1 hour to 2 hours to 3 hours, etc. and when you try to go down, it goes quickly to 0, its really hard without going minute by minute to get times between seperate hours. But I hope I haven't entirely turned people off to this oven. I think these are issues that many ovens have (little quirks really). I just think its good for people to know about these things because I know I would have liked to know. Even though I like the oven, if I knew there was a chance, if ever so small, that I would be dealing with this kind of stress to make a pizza, I may have waited the extra day and stayed home for the delivery men to get the new oven my landlord was going to give me (which went into the vacant apartment next door instead, but still is, of course, a whirlpool). I will add a few positives, our energy bill definitely went down SIGNIFICANTLY. When the oven does work and we are using it, the apartment doesn't heat that significantly (although the broiler acts like central heating turned to 100, we have to turn on our AC every time, but at the same time, that just tells you how efficient it is at cooking quickly). And ultimately, some of the best foods I have ever made have come out of this oven and its just opened up my cooking abilities and allowed me to do more, which I really appreciate in a product. And so I recommended the product with a caution of just be conscientous of the possible flaw with the heating element, if you notice a problem, immediately get it checked out. But if you don't have it, you will enjoy this oven (honestly the other things just get to me because they are ON TOP of the heating issue, otherwise I honestly would recommend this oven often and probably wouldn't even notice them).

The bottom drawer has not closed straight since we got it and one side was missing a screw which I replaced. Also I have to call service as the right front burner will not light.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Broke after 4 months
By Adam Loeffler
from Nashville, TN, United States
Overall the oven has worked okay, but after 4 months of use the igniter on the stove top went out. We now have to go through the hassle of filing a warranty claim and in the mean time use a lighter to cook with. Very annoying and frustrating.
Love my Whirlpool gas range!

I am very pleased with my Whirlpool gas range purchase. It looks fabulous in my kitchen among the other stainless steel and black appliances! Whirlpool has done it again!
great range, great stove
from Long Beach, CA, United States
This range lives up to its specifications. So far, it's been awesome. Steve temperature dials are easy to set and the oven has more features than you'll probably use. Great product for the price.

I have had my Whirlpool gas range for one month now and I love it! The surface is easy to clean and I like the different sized burners for my various cooking needs. I would recommend this product!
Great features for the cost!

Really enjoy using this appliance. Relative ease of use.
Love the looks of this oven. Bakes well.
By Grandma Lu
from Byron Center, Michigan
The charcoal grate covers clean well and they are not the same shiny texture as the black color of the stove. I can tell right away if a burner has been left on due to the contrast in color. Love the bigger sized knobs on stove. They have to be pushed in and turned to allow burners to light; nice safety feature. Love that the oven light goes on when I open oven door. Bakes very well. Friends and family comment on the nice appearance of oven.Good bang for your buck.
A basic stove, but friendly features.
from Amberg, WI
I've only had my stove for about 6 weeks and am very happy with it. The only downside that I can think of is that it doesn't have a drip tray under the burners like my old one had. This seems to be common with the newer stoves. However, when I do spill and it gets cooked on even for a short time, I can't always get the stains off the enamel. Also, my old one had smooth burner covers and this one is more porous making it harder cleaning as well. The oven works wonderful and the controls are easy to set.

Unexpected expense when we first moved into new home because previous stove had a unrepairable gas leak. We are very happy with this product.
