This stove has a lot of great new features that I have not had before. Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to use them all yet! I love the rapid preheat function and the various burner sizes. Stovetop cooking is a breeze! It comes with a stovetop griddle that I have used over and over. The few things that I have baked have come out perfectly done. I am very happy with this stove.

We got this range as part of a set that included the dishwasher, microwave and fridge. The stove was the weakest element in the group. It looks great, but has some issues in the performance department. First, the convection setting takes forever to pre heat and to cook. We find we need to increase cooking time by about 50% to use convection, so we just leave it off. Second, the grate and burners have a coarse surface finish that grabs onto grease and debris, which burns and turns them black. They are not easy to keep clean. Third, the biggest burners are positioned in the front of the stove which is a pain as we have to reach over out biggest pots to get to the smaller ones in the back when we cook. Fourth, pre-heating takes at least 10 minutes, and can take 15 even with the "rapid pre-heat" option- our old Whirlpool electric took no more than 6 minutes to get to 450. Finally, the oven can't keep a low temperature, which makes it very difficult to use it to allow bread to rise.

Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Freestanding Gas Range:
Adding the black ice gas range to our kitchen made the most difference in our meals. We started experimenting with the removable griddle became instantly hooked. Following the directions to keep the small burner on medium and power burner on low equalized the temperature perfectly for grilled cheese sandwiches and french toast. Last weekend I tested out bacon and eggs. The bacon cooked well with minimal splattering but the reservoir needed to be spooned out before the fat dripped onto the range. A turkey baster is my next investment to suck out the fat as only a small spoon can be used in the oil reservoir. We were poaching eggs at the time but cracked a couple onto the griddle while the bacon was getting removed. They came out perfect, over easy and the kids chose them over the poached eggs. The griddle stores easily in the range bottom drawer but I think it's more permanent home is going to be where it is used. I like the clock and the cooking timer, I've used it for timing steaks on the bbq outside while making salad. Can't wait to cook our first turkey.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

love the look of the new stove
from Naperville, IL, United States
Had the stove and the oven stopped igniting within the first month. Evidently this is a known defect by Whirlpool. Unfortunately, it took over 2 weeks to have it fixed under the warranty. The other thing is the control panel is a bit tricky to use - the buttons for the timer are not easily set. Otherwise, the stove and oven are very nice.

Cooking Like a Chef
My new Whirlpool Convection Gas Range is absolutely perfect. I have wanted a gas range as long as I have been cooking (43 yrs) and my dreams finally came true in April 2014. Cook, convection, aqua mist self clean. Looks so classy in my kitchen and truly cooks like a dream. I consider myself a gourmet home cook and this Range has all the features that are above normal standards. The split oven racks and the large viewing window are some of the features that my friends and family oooooh and awww over.
sleek design,grates are awesome
from Bradenton, FL, United States
I purchased 2 months ago and I am very pleased with my purchase. I love the look and the ease of cleaning the grates and surface of the stove top. The stove has a lot of features and great overall look for the price.I also love the large window in the oven door and the cooking options.The convection roast for meat turns out an awesome moist roast.I wanted the look of a slide in but found them to be very pricey and also have very small oven capacity.This oven is very large and stove is very sleek looking. I'm extremely pleased with my purchase.
Fantastic Looks and Performance
Great burner control, the griddle option is very convenient, and the oven is huge. Easy controls make cooking simple and the huge oven window not only looks great but makes checking on food very convenient. The black takes a little extra work to keep streak free but overall you can't beat the looks. The range cover is sleek and the stainless handles give it a classy look. I don't think you can find a better looking freestanding range with such good performance.
stove top grill
from Ajax, Ontario
It's great to have 5 burners on top of the range. The convection feature is an excellent feature.
Not so Great Range
I bought this range 3 weeks ago and the so called porcelain top is already chipping. The burners get too hot and you can not simmer very well even on the lowest burner. It is a good looking stove and the oven cooks really good. My pots do not sit on the burner grates very well. They move because the grates are not situated so your pots can sit evenly.
