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.

Great Features for the Price
By A Cooking Couple
from Manalapan, NJ
This purchase replaces a two oven stove we had for twelve years. That was a key factor in choosing this unit because we enjoy the convenience of having two ovens. The unit is sleek and modern in design and it matched our current decor of stainless steel appliances. The range top layout has five burners, although the griddle burner in the middle will work best when no more than two of the other burners are in use. It does come with a small griddle that would never meet the needs of just the two of us and we have a larger one of our own. The elliptical shaped burner will heat the griddle evenly, rather than having to perch it over two conventional burners. The keypad is well designed and has a very clear display panel. Both ovens have a "keep warm" setting which is a nice feature. There is also a setting for proofing bread that we will be trying. Both ovens heat up quickly and hold temperature well. This unit has timers to turn the unit on and then off, that you can set. We found it easy to clean, which is a pleasant surprise for a stainless steel top. There are more features but this gives you a good idea of why we like it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Love this range.
from Independence MO.
This is the best range you never owned. We love the way you can adjust the oven temperature plus or -5°to change the oven temperature to run hotter or cooler. We found our oven set at just 350°was actually 345°. We were able to adjust the temperature of 5°so that the oven cut at the precise temperature needed. We cut a lot of roles cupcakes and they've turned out better with this oven that made it in our last. The temperature is so even though it doesn't really matter where you place the food on the shelf. Or allow you to put two pans of roles on the same shelf and they both the equally.
You wll love range, oven
from Independence, MO
This is an oven that truly meets the needs of a professional Baker. Not only does it have a built-in proofing function for your bread but you can also adjusting oven temperature up to 25 degrees warmer or cooler to have precise temperatures control for when you set your oven at the desired temperature it will be accurate. It also takes the guesswork out of using the true convection oven as it will convert regular baking times and temperatures to the proper time and temperature for convection cooking. Buy it you'll love it.
A Welcome Addition to any Modern Kitchen

Bought this a few years ago. Nice still after a few years and only one instance needing warranty replacement for a display module.
Grates are hard to clean
Grates and area around burner need to be cleaned after every use or they get hard to clean. I learned the hard way and now I am stuck with bad looking grates and burners.
Hoping oven ingniter number four is the charm
By Nobody Cares
from Las Vegas
This thing is a bit over three years old. Food prep performance is satisfactory when it works. The oven has had bouts of failing to light and hold temperature culminating with the present third failure including a faulty replacement part. We are forced to freeze food we intended to roast after a few ruined dishes. I would put the food in and walk away to do something else returning 40 minutes later to a gooey, ruined mess. Oven temperature crashed. Refused to relight. Labor and ingredients in the trash. Today is Thursday. The tech told me he can't install the new part until the following Monday. The tech has done his best to hide his irritation at all my calls including telling me on visit number two the unit was 100% operational. Bad feelings on both sides all because Kitchen Aid/Whirlpool cannot be bothered to exercise the meanest scintilla of quality control.
from Rising Sun,Md.
Was totally surprised how well this "new" gas range cooked. The home I have came with a Electric range and for 15 years hated it LOL.It took a little getting used to it. Especially when preparing stir fry dishes,AND, was surprised how fast those dishes cooked. Give it 10 "thumbs" up !!!!!
Dangerous and burner valve failure
Have had this stove for about three years (maybe 4)The valves can be bumped on without the flame igniting and there is no thermocouple to stop the gas from flowing, our dog turned the gas on one day and my wife walked into a house full of gas !!!!!!!Also the burner valves fail and cannot be turned on - we are down to only one working burner with thanksgiving just around the corner.The rack for the upper oven is also too close to the door when it is open, so is difficult to pull out.

I only purchased this due to a rebate which I never got. The rebate was the tie breaker between this unit and a comparable LG. Shame on Kitchenaid. I have since purchased washer, dryer, microwave...all LG. Guess it was worth the $100 they kept from me. My next buy is a fridge. Guess what it'll be?
