We were looking for a gas wall oven. We could not believe there was the possibility of having one, plus a broiler. From what we found after careful investigating online, we could have a good quality oven & broiler, for a good price. We bought ours at AJ Madison, where we received discount over discount :) , plus an excellent customer service.When we received our new oven & broiler, I have to say we were very impressed, because it looks a lot better in person! I was worried that maybe I wouldn't have enough space in this oven, as I was used to have the oven of a 30" gas range. Before I bought my new oven, I took measures of some of my ovenware, and then went to a nearby store. I compared these measures with the space in their ovens (of course, I chose an oven siimilar in size to the oven I had in mind for purchasing). After this little exercise, my worries dissapeared completely, because a 24" oven can fit many containers at the same time.? noticed that the wall oven&broilers were not very common, specially one like mine, with the broiling space even wider, and gas.Before I go on, I have to say that in "features" I chose not to give a rating of excellent, because I think the broiler should come with a broiling pan included. It would be great. Plus, to support other owners, who have complained about two things (see the next paragraphs).Well, as I said before, the Maytag oven & broiler is impressive, beautiful in design (I chose the stainless steel finish), and looks fantastic in my kitchen. It attracts a lot of attention. The installation was easy, but we had a professional helping us with this. We thought it would be safer, plus faster. Even the technician was amazed with how simple it was to change from natural gas to propane.Our new Maytag oven & broiler has worked great since the very first moment. Very soon we learned how to operate it. We have baked, broiled, toasted, warmed many dishes. Even my 12 year old daughter is fascinated with this oven. She has baked brownies, cakes and cookies with excellent results (under my supervision!). Whatever I bake in this oven comes out perfect. The first time I used the broiler, it was for some chicken breasts. The results were amazing; the chicken breasts turned into a golden-brown color I thought I would never get if not with a grill or something like that. Plus, the meat was tender and juicy, well cooked too. It is a pleasure to cook anything with this oven & broiler.Some owners have complained that you cannot see the clock when the oven or broiler is working. It is true, so I just don't rely on this clock while I am baking or broiling; for checking the daytime, I just use my wall clock. Maybe an additional screen -two additional screens would be even better- could be added to the control panel, so when it starts working, the clock can still be seen separately from the temperature, and from the cook time.It is wonderful to have the oven tell you when the right temperature (pre-heat) for your baking has been reached, or when your dish is done. Programming the oven for temperature and timing is very easy. I use the TIMER when I am cooking on my cooktop (great bonus I didn't expect!). There is an oven light, which works for both oven and broiler.Some owners have mentioned the heat vent and how uncomfortable it gets for your hands when the oven or broiler is working, if you have to use the control panel at that moment. I use mittens, or very quick movements, to avoid the heat on my hands. Maybe there is some different positioning of the control panel and heat vent that can be considered for future design.What my oven & broiler control panel (completely digital) has:* A digital clock (when the oven or broiler start working, here is where it shows the temperature; if you choose a cooking time, this is what will be displayed during cooking time).* BAKE* BROIL*COOk TIME (for setting time to your baking/broiling; the oven or broiler will automatically be turned off when the time finishes, and there is a high beep sound to let you know)*DELAY TIME (have not used this, yet)*TIMER (I use it when I am cooking on my cooktop, beeps when finishing counting down)*CLOCK (for setting the digital clock with the daytime)*OVEN LIGHT*START*CANCEL*TEMP/TIME (for increasing of decreasing temperature and cooking time; be very careful with the cooking time setting, beause the first time I was about to give 12 hours instead of 12 minutes to some bread biscuits!)Before I forget, yes, I have broiled and baked at the same time, because the fire will be the same for both spaces (oven and broiler).Easy to clean!

So when I moved into my house, I found an old "ModernMaid" which must've been at least 25 years old. At first I was afraid to use it and wanted to replace it ASAP, but after a couple of uses, I found that my food was cooked evenly and the capacity of the oven portion was big enough that I could make a good sized turkey in it. A cookie sheet fit nicely, going in wide. Then it stopped working and I searched like crazy for another one just like that. Unfortunately, ModernMaid is no longer in production, and the repairman could not fix it. I needed to find something similar; size was my challenge: my cabinet is 28 inches wide, and therefore, I would be limited to Maytag, as they were the only gas oven maker out there, in black, that would fit for a 28" opening. I desperately wanted to splurge and get an American Range, but the smallest they make is 30", which means that I would have to re-do my whole kitchen just for the oven. Well, I wish I had done just that. My new Maytag, is pretty and black, but the oven itself, the compartment I use the most, is too narrow, so much so that a cookie sheet MUST go in length-wise, because to turn it sideways won't fit, or I need to buy smaller cookie sheets. My old roasting pan, which is quite large, won't fit in the Maytag, but was a perfect fit in the ModernMaid. Maytag made the inside of the oven so small, it's nearly useless. The broiler is large for no reason. The oven as a whole is also shorter than my old ModernMaid. Why? What reason does Maytag have for this? I don't understand how ModernMaid was able with the same amount of opening, to have more internal space for cooking, and Maytag could not. Had I known all of this, I would have definitely opted to just redo my kitchen, and go bigger, since the other options are just not that great. When a pan or dish DOES fit, it cooks nicely, but the lightbulb, doesn't have a protective grate like the ModernMaid did, so be careful to not bump into the bulb, you could break it. Also, the control panel tends to buzz at random times. You would think the Maytag is an old piece of junk, not some new appliance that cost well over $1000.

By I don't have one and don't want one
from Plymouth Meeting
We re-did our kitchen. We replaced our match-lighted oven with a modern Maytag one. It works. That is what is most important.
By Bob the Builder

We bought this oven to replace a 35 year old original wall oven. It works great and thw new one fit right into our wall space with very minor adjustments. The only thing that might need improvement is the broiler unit. The rack isn't close enough to the broiler flame and doesn't seem to be directed downward enough.
Attractive, modern design
from Santa Maria, CA
Easy to use. Heats quickly and lets me know. I am glad there are no dials to break off. However, the control panel becomes too hot after it has reached the desired temperature and it is painful to set the timer.
from Maple Heights, Ohio
I bought this a month ago and I am delighted that I did. My kitchen needed a serious upgrade and was concerned because I couldn't find the right size.I feel like a chef. Can't wait to fix my first turkey.

Best wall oven I have had.
By Mrs. Gee
from Arcadia, CA
This is my third wall oven and by far the best one ever. It is simple to operate and unlike the other ovens I had before from other manufactures, the heat is even no uneven cakes, no burnt parts or under baked parts, every cookie baked to perfection. I am very pleased with this oven and highly recommend it.

its not fair to review as the dealer made a mistake in ordering this ovenI ordered a double oven 24". he said no problem. when delivered it was a top oven and bottom broiler and there was no such animal as a 24' double oven, but I am stuck with it and it works ok
Kinda small, but otherwise works well.
from Hemet, CA
So far so good except that it's kinda shallow. I can't fit a full sized cookie sheet.
The package was full of broken glass that fell out all over the floor when we opened it. We think they had replaced a broken one in manufacturing and did not remove the pieces. It was all over inside the oven housing and we could not get it all out. There was a door seal piece missing and we had to go to a local Maytag facility to pick it up before we could use the oven.
