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).

So happy with my purchase!
from central Illinois
After cooking on an electric stove for over 8 years, I was definitely sure that I wanted to go back to a gas range. My Whirpool gas range is stylish and had all the features I needed. I LOVE it!
Now we're cookin'!
from Maricopa, AZ
In the past we've had to move due to the military, and each apartment had an electric stove/oven. My wife and I were always frustrated by inconsistent temperature and times when cooking. Now, that's a thing of the past. Steady temperature, even cooking, beautiful appearance and great space in the oven. Thank you guys!
pilot light shuts off with no indication
from Tremonton, UT, United States
The pilot light shuts off but the oven display still shows the oven is at the temp it was set out. The first time the problem started was Thanksgiving Day. I had 40 people coming and a raw turkey. My husband got it fix shortly after and that seemed to work til today. 10 months later we are still having the same problem. This oven is only 4 years old. (so 3 years old when the problem started to occur) Not Happy. I would expect more out of a appliance made by whirlpool
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Made Wife Happy!
from Carnegie, PA, United States
I don't do much cooking, but my wife likes her new Whirlpool stove. I researched different brands and I suggested this brand and model. It came in Bisque and she wanted it. We have had it a month and she is happy with her new stove. Her only complaint is that it is hard to clean the ceramic paint.
from Baltimore, MD, United States
I bought the range because I was in need of a new one. I love all the features and the color. I'm looking to buy a matching refrigerator soon.
By Cardinal Matt
from Louisville, KY
I have had this range for about a month and am very impressed. My previous range functioned just fine, but the increased cooking power of the Whirlpool stove top is impressive. With the Power Burner, I was able to bring a large pot of water to boil in lightning quick time. The oven has cooked consistently and evenly each time it's been used. The only concern is that it is almost too easy to turn the cook top burners on, as I have bumped into them and turned them on accidentally on a couple of occasions. Otherwise, I am absolutely satisfied with this product.
By Linda SS
I am very pleased with it. I does exactly what I want.
from Middleville, Mi
This range is all I wanted and more. Love the sealed burners and the grates that lock together. The touchpad is easy to use. Haven't used all the features, such as delayed start and cleaning oven, but sure they will work fine. Oven temp seems to be very accurate, and the power burner and simmer burner have been used daily. Extremely happy with this purchase!
from Watertown, NY
