I am very happy with my new 5 burner double oven gas range. I waited a long time to purchase a double oven range and did a lot of research before choosing. The KitchenAid had the most features for the price. Since receiving my range, I've only found a few things I don't like. One is the design of the knobs. The panel where the knobs attach is angled. While it looks nice, it reduces the surface area of the stovetop. You can get 4 pots on there, but they had better not be large ones. I also had to purchase a new 2-burner grill pan because mine would not fit on the top of the range. The burners are bit too easy to turn on. If I lean over the range (not while it's on, of course) to get a pot from the cabinet above, I bump at least one of the knobs and a message begins rolling across the panel telling me to check to see if the burners are off. One other thing that might not apply to anyone else - I live in an area where the power goes out frequently. My previous gas range burners would still operate when lit with a match. Not so with the KitchenAid. No power, no gas. Those issues aside, the range works beautifully and looks just as good. The ovens bake evenly and having 2 ovens is a dream. I will never own a single oven again. The controls are easy to operate and the glass display is easy to clean. Overall, the whole unit is easy to clean for a gas range. I ordered it in white to match my other appliances. I imagine the stainless would be more difficult to clean. The extending rack in the lower oven really makes removing heavy pots easier. I worried it would be difficult as the lower oven really is quite low to the floor. I find that I use the upper oven most often since I'm usually cooking for one. But the lower oven bakes two large trays of cookies evenly with the convection turned on. I don't miss the storage drawer as much as I thought I would, and it was worth losing the drawer to gain another oven. All in all, there are a few small things I would change, but I wouldn't give up my KitchenAid range for anything. Would recommend.

I purchased all KA appliances for my new home in 2012. This KA range has a nice 5-burner arrangement, but the high BTU burner is woefully underpowered. Has trouble boiling 6 Qts of water for pasta.The lower oven has been serviced 4 times in 2.5 years for the same problem (igniter failure), and I am now waiting for the 5th service (parts on backorder). KA's extended service contract doesn't recognize the first 2 times it was serviced under the original manufacturer's warranty, they only count the 2 services done under the extended warranty. Even though it's the same issue every time, they won't even count the 5th service toward the "Lemon clause" in the warranty because the replacement parts have not been installed yet. My other KA appliances all work fine, but for the money, this range is overpriced and underdelivers. KA's extended warranty personnel are unsympathetic and difficult to work with. I cannot recommend KA to friends and family, and would probably replace with a different brand if I could.

KitchenAid gas stove is great!
from Cleveland, TN
Comments about KitchenAid 30" White Freestanding Gas Range:
This is the first time we have bought all KitchenAid appliances for our kitchen. After using them every day for over two years I can say without a doubt they perform as well as they look. The best brand we have ever purchased in the last 40 years!

Pluses and minuses
from Morristown, NJ
Bought all new kitchenaid appliances at the same time nearly 3 years ago. This range has great features. Love the dual ovens and convection. Stove is great. Love the griddle too. ANd the optional fifth burner is a great bonus. Here are the issues. The upper oven just does not get hot enough. For some reason it does not heat up to the same temperature as the lower oven. THis may also be related to our current issue which is that the broiler does not work now. And in fact, we've had a licensed KA repair guy in to check it out and he can not seem to figure out what's wrong. What's more it looks like the igniter is crapping out when you turn it on but the gas still come out. This issue according the repair guy is very dangerous and so he plans to come back and enlist Kitchenaid engineering team by phone in order to try and resolve. Overall, we like Kitchenaid Products but are not impressed with their service. They don't seem to have a very comprehensive data management system so when you call, they can't pull up old orders for example. They are also not very flexible w returns and repair needs.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
The knobs on the front control panel are too easily turned on just enough to allow the gas to come through but not enough to for the sparkler to start. Have accidentally turned the knobs many times when working near the stove and reaching into the cupboards above or to the sides. Have had to have service work done on the control knobs at least 3 times. Glad we purchased the extended warranty because most of the failures happened after the manufacturer warranty ended. And of course now that the extended warranty is done, we have had the same failure. So now I cannot use the front right burner as it will no longer turn on. Not sure what a service call to repair it will cost. SO NOT HAPPY!
2 knobs got stuck within 2 years of buying new unit
By Raghu S.
We bought a new gas range unit Model # KGRS505XSS. Within 1 year one of the knobs got stuck in off position. We had to call in an authorized appliance expert to fix it at cost of apprx $150. Then 1 year later a different knob got stuck in off position and we're unable to turn that burner on. The failure is random in that it just shows up even when we're not operating that knob at all. We've been using different brand of gas ranges for 30 years in small family type kitchen use cases. This type of problem has never happened to us before, so we cannot even attribute this to poor use on our side. This points either to a defective unit OR a fundamental design problem. We bought KitchenAid expeting high quality and reliability. Now shelling out $150 to $200 each time is very frustrating for a new unit and we have to schedule a repair person and wait for half day window for the gentleman to show up.
I love it!

Our old range had seen better days and was due to be replaced. We decided on this Kitchen Aid and are happy we did. It has exceeded our expectations. I recommend a Kitchen Aid range for anyone looking for a new one.
Very pleased with performance and appearance so far.
Need to re-learn how to cook with gas
This gas stove is extremely hot. My pans, Cuisinart Stainless Steel, are great pans and I had no problems with them until the purchase of this stove. The handles get too hot to use without hot pads. The oven is also hotter than my electric range was, and it heats up the kitchen. I'm not sure if this is just because it's a gas range, or because something is not calibrated properly. I also have a problem with the layout of the burners. Both very high-powered, large burners are at the front of the stove, and the medium and small sizes are at the back. I would prefer to have the medium burner at the front because I am fairly short (not quite 5-ft) and it would be easier to cook at my preferred temperature (not so high) if the burner were closer. In talking with others who have gas ranges, this is a common issue for many of us. I've had the stove 3 months and the oven light has already been replaced twice, which seems odd to me. We bought the range to match the refrigerator, purchased 6 months earlier, not realizing that the model would be discontinued. This was the only stove I could find to match when we updated the kitchen in our newly purchased home. Learning to cook with gas is different, but I like many things about it. However, I was spoiled with a ceramic top range with respect to clean up. The gas range is much more difficult to keep clean.

I love this stove. It is very easy to use.
Stay Away from Kitchen Aid
We have had this for abut 3 years. It has always been a battle to keep the ovens working. Even under warranty the frustration of only having one oven ever work for any length of time finally convinced us that Kitchen Aid is making Junk. I can write a book on how the finish does not live up to the price paid (even on sale) or the flaky control panel. We are buying a Samsung or LG rather than try an repair an inferior Kitchen Aid.
