Very Disappointed....... Posted by: from: on We purchased this oven in January 2015. All the kitchen appliances in our condo were nearing the end of their lifespan, so we replaced everything. Bottom oven is very slow to preheat, whether doing rapid or standard preheating. It took 40 minutes to preheat to 425 for two pizza crusts, then proceeded to burn the one on the top rack and undercook the one on the bottom (picture). Racks were only 1 inch apart. The top oven runs way too hot, while the bottom oven is all over the place. Also, if you try to preheat, then turn up the temperature, it will stay about 25-50 degrees below the original temperature, and never get any warmer -what the heck? The heat of the burners are anyone's guess -either way too hot or hardly hot at all, and it doesn't seem to correspond in any way to where the dial is. Overall, we're very disappointed with this purchase and it's already out of the 1 year warranty. Will not be buying any Whirlpool or Best Buy appliances ever again. Really wish we would have just kept our old oven.

Superb! Posted by: from: on Elegant and stylish. The toast button is a huge hit in our house. It cooks toast perfectly every time. I use the upper oven more because it uses less heat and less energy which saves money. I have yet to use the bottom oven because the top rack is so large and perfect for all my cooking needs. I did have to get use to cleaning promptly after each cooking since I went from a coil top to smooth service. I also had to buy all new pots and pans due to some restrictions on the type of bottom you can use. Some surfaces could pit or scratch the smooth service, so please check your pans prior to first use. I was delighted to buy all new pots and pans anyway. I love the quick action of the pre heat button. I enjoy the lightening quick action to boil too. I really love all aspects of this oven. I would recommend this to others. And make sure to read the handbook on how to clean and which pots to use.

Good deal for a double oven Posted by: from: on This was the best deal I could find for an electric double oven. It works well and I have had no problems. I especially like the upper oven because it heats up quickly. My only complaint is that it is a little difficult to keep the electric stove clean on the top. It seems to leave marks and stains easily, and you need to wait until it is completely cool to clean it, or it does not clean up well. Even so, i would buy this again. It looks great in my new kitchen with the other stainless steel appliances, and it works fine.

Instruction Manual needs more detail Posted by: from: on I purchased the range online sight unseen, since the range wasn't available in stores in my vicinity. I didn't receive a salesperson's demo, but I wasn't concerned about not receiving hands-on instruction. In past experiences, I never had a problem figuring out functions (even when I rented and didn't have a manual). Usually, controls are intuitive and do not require reading the instruction manual (in case there is a special mode, I always read the manual even though I already understand basic controls). Instead of writing the instuctions from a new user's perspective, the instructions appear to have been written by someone who was very familiar with the range controls; so some of the instructions start in the MIDDLE instead of at the BEGINNING. I'm very happy with the range itself. For me, the two best features are the 90 second boil and the rapid pre-heat oven. Love, love, love these features.

Love Love Love Posted by: from: Alabama on I love this stove!! Let me start with the stove top...it has five burners! You can do anything from keeping a dish warm, to melting butter, to dual cooking (browns meat really fast or boils water super fast!!) As for the ovens, I love having two ovens, especially of different sizes. Why waste the electricity heating a big oven when you only need a small area heated to cook a pizza? Or to cook a sheet of cookies? Yet you still have the advantage of being able to heat rolls in the small oven and cook a large ham in the lower oven.

Great range, awesome value on sale Posted by: from: Raleigh, NC on Love the design! Mist of my oven cooking only requires the smalll uppwr oven which preheats super fast, saves energy, & youve got reserve oven for holiday cooking. NOTE: due to double oven there is NO dead space for your electrical plug to hide underneath! I gad to have an electrician move the outlet so the range could slide vack flush to the wall. An added expense i wasnt prepaired for, but loved the range so much it was worth it.

I love my double oven! Posted by: from: on I have 3 teenagers and cook all of the time. I have always wanted a double oven. This oven has been so awesome! My old oven took for ever to heat up. This oven shows the temp for each oven as it is heating. There are so many settings, and a timer, and self cleaning. It looks great too. I am so excited to have this just before the holidays. The only problem I had (which wasn't really a problem) was breaking it in so I wouldn't have that new oven smell. Which I have done. I just cannot wait to cook those big meals for my family. Turkey and dressing in one oven, veggies, bread, dessert in the other! Love it!

Great Choice Posted by: from: on We were looking to upgrade the basic stove in our new home before moving in. Look this up, went to the store, asked a zillion questions and then bought it. Turned out to be exactly as described and works perfectly.

Looks great Posted by: from: on Works and looks great. The issue is the shelf on the top oven, it's hard to pull out as there is not enough clearance for an oven mitt and the door. When you pull the shelf out it runs along the door, which I'm sure over time it will wear away the porcelain . If you have back issues , the lower oven is pretty low.

Double oven Posted by: from: on Beautiful range - double oven is fantastic. Lots of great features. Two things keep it from a five star rating. The first is the top glass is impossible to keep clean! Every streak shows and just when you think it is clean the last wipe of the cloth creates another streak. Also, If you have a standard floor mount plug the stove WILL NOT push flush against the wall due to its low bottom. The plug will to be relocated into the wall to have it fit. You may need to hire an electrician to do this.
