    Good performance but features leave oven lacking

    I've had this oven for two days- have already decided to return it to best buy and try a different model. LIKES: - It looks great, beautiful oven with solid handles and nice modern display - Visibility of current oven temperature while cooking - Broiler in upper oven is powerful - Convection performance is solid; baked two sheets of cookies in lower oven and results are very consistent DISLIKES: - When using the 'regular' timer, the area for the clock is replaced by a timer so you can no longer see a time - When using the easy convect / bake / etc mode, you set the temp, and then the time. This time will show in a different area than the 'regular' timer. Unfortunately there is no way to just let the oven preheat via this method before setting your time. - When the easy convect / bake / etc mode timer finishes the oven simply turns off. This makes it awkward to add additional time (have to start from step 1) and you lose track of whether the item is finished if you did not hear the two beeps. - This oven features some sort of electronic switch to allow gas to the ranges and burners; unfortunately some noise (a light buzz) from this switch is very audible in a quiet room. You can hear the switch pop on and off when switching between 'lock' mode and regular. Another downside here- it is likely this oven is dead in the water during a power outage. - Lock mode takes too long to engage / disengage. I understand the need for it with the burners out front but a 4 digit PIN on the keypad would be much faster. - In upper oven, when using the shelf setting suggested in the manual, the rack when extended bumps / rests on the door. Poor design / fitment. - Some of the controls and actions on the control panel are just weird and not straightforward. All in all, a good performing oven, but not a good oven. If these shortcomings don't bother you this oven will definitely cook food evenly and consistently while looking sharp in your kitchen. The constant hum of the electric valve is too annoying for my wife and myself after our previous inexpensive oven making zero noise.

    Amazing Stove

    My wife wanted a stove that didn’t take forever to preheat and was able to cook two things at once. This was the answer. This stove preheats so fast and saves us so much time with that and having two ovens. The other reason we chose this stove over other double oven convection stoves is because of the stainless steel top. Our last gas stove had a black top and showed everything and you had to wipe it down every day if you wanted it to look clean. With the stainless steel, you don’t have to do that. It doesn’t show the dust like the black does. I read some reviews before purchasing this about people saying how easily the top scratched when cleaning it and this upset them. Well I destroyed the top of our stove the first time cooking on it splattering olive oil everywhere while searing some meat. Olive oil is not easy to clean up as some might know and even though it took a lot of cleaning, it never once scratched anywhere. I’m not sure if these other people are using wire brushes or extremely abrasive cleaners and don’t know what the heck they are doing because this does not scratch easily unless you are using something on it you shouldn’t use on any surface you don’t want to scratch. Common sense isn’t always that common though.

    Bought this in Feb and was installed in April. Have been using it about a month. Although it is basically summer now and I usually do more grilling and much less baking this time of yr, I have been using it quite a bit. I've almost always had a gas stove but when we purchased this house, it came with a horrible electric cooktop in ceramic. So after four yrs I'm reacclimating to cooking with gas. We did the propane conversion by our local dealer...so technically I'm on LP. It kicks out tremendous heat. The burners vary in BTUs but both larger ones are hottttt. I find I'm often on low to medium and cooking away. The ovens rock. I've used both. 1. I love the blue interior. 2. The convection is new to me but it's not that much of a learning curve. The easy convection button will figure for you what you shld be set on once you input the standard Time and temp for a recipe. So once and done. I've figured that it tends to suggest 25 degrees lower but same length of time. I'm also just winging it and experimenting with time and temp. Have not run the self clean as we are only a month in. Can bake 3 racks of cookies at a time...I really like it and am so glad to be back in gas...esp for canning. Bought as part of a three piece KitchenAid promo and price was great. Delivery was within a week. LP conversion pieces come with it. Took my propane guys about an hour to connect, test, etc.

    A joy to cook on

    We've had our range for about a year now and are very happy with our purchase. Center burners are often low BTU burners that are good for warming only, but we routinely use ours for pancakes and it does a great job. The smaller top oven is great for homemade pizzas. We use a pizza stone and heat it to 500F, so having the smaller space to heat helps to reduce the heat in the kitchen. My only two complaints are the sliding rack which is a great feature, but not well executed. If you don't slide it in very straight, it sticks and you have to mess with it to get it to slide in. Not ideal with the oven hot and wearing an oven mitt. I also used the self-cleaning feature today after some chicken grease spilled in the oven and it did not do a very good job. Cleaning power (or time) is selectable from 1 (lowest) to 5 (highest) and I chose 3, so it may just be that I need to go full power, but the mess was not exceptional and two hours seemed like it would be sufficient. Other than these minor complaints, we love our KitchenAid and love cooking on it.

    waiting 6 months for oven

    I ordered this oven after seeing the reviews on 1/24/18 in the Black Stainless Steel to be delivered on 3/10/18. Oven was delivered, damaged in 3 places but functional. BestBuy stated to keep it to use until re-order could be done. Re-ordered and was to be delivered on 4/27/17 only to get a call from the store manager the day before @ 7:20PM to let me know it would be delayed due to short stock and new date is 6/8/18. So almost a 6 month process with no guarantees on if this one will be delivered in pristine condition. Of the one I have now, the timer setting is wonky - you when the timer ends, you have to hit the button twice to turn it off. The upper oven is tricky since it has broiler and not much room, the rack sits on the bottom so its hard to get sheet pans out. The lower oven is low to the floor. When buying - open up the oven and actually reach down and imagine lifting a roast out of a hot oven as a guide. The grates do not sit well on the stove, there are small rubber stoppers for heavy grates to prevent it from slipping, but its hard when the grates are cast iron and can slide when moving heavy pans on the stovetop.

    After my (dreadful) second-hand stove finally died, I went to Best Buy to check out new models. I'd happened to walk down another aisle while waiting to get the specs on another stove when I found myself in the 'double-oven' area. Having only seen them in ads once or twice, it wasn't even on my 'radar'. But, by the time the salesman had returned with my specs, I informed him that I wanted this stove, instead. We couldn't be happier with our purchase, a sleek, elegant beast that exceeds every expectation, and looks fabulous in our kitchen. Having variable burners is still a wonderful surprise, and makes even boiling water a joy. As if the stove's features weren't enough, the blue lining was a lovely surprise- and matches our counters perfectly, as if it were designed for us. I can't say enough about the tremendous versatility of this stove, which has already streamlined my cooking in general. Cant' wait for the holidays!

    I was replacing my old double oven. So many of the newer double ovens are truly two ovens. You can put in a divider and they still have the storage drawer on the bottom. That makes both ovens basically a small oven. To make a large item like a turkey, you have to remove the divider. That means that on the days you desperately need two ovens (holiday meals), you are reduced to a single oven. This is a true double oven. It works great, reaches and maintains a temperature, and bakes evenly. The stove top is nice. The four outer burners have strong, consistent flames. The only negative is the center burner. It doesn’t put out a strong flame with good heat, but I don’t use it often so I still rate this as 5 stars.

    I wanted convection, two ovens, sealed gas burners, range of btu's and stainless. Not many options out there that aren't professional level or at least very expensive. This range is a great in between price. Love having two ovens. Top one is great for heating up things, roasting vegetables or broiling - without using a full size oven. The burners are far enough apart to accommodate large pots on both front burners (also controls are flat on front leaving more room for pots). We find we have excellent control of the flame/heat of burners. We owned a previous version of KitchenAid's gas convection range, but one of the high btu burners was in the back making it impossible to use with a large pot and controls were at the front but facing up taking up range top space. Also love the smooth gliding oven racks. This range is a great improvement.

    A Little Disappointed

    My stove arrived today and of course I was very excited. The installer pointed out two issues: 1. The grates aren't even so sliding a pot from left to right or vice verse may cause a tipover/spillover of pot contents and therefore a huge mess. 2. On initial firing up of the front right burner some grate material flamed off leaving leaving a very visible imperfection. I haven't used the stove at all yet (top nor ovens) but will update if I find additional issues.

    Poor cooking quality

    I purchased this KitchenAid range to replace a 10 year old builder grade (low level) GE range. I expected the KitchenAid convection oven in this new unit to cook more evenly than the old GE and to do it quicker as convection ovens do. Nope. The old GE oven cooked the food better and quicker. The next night I used the stove top to boil water for pasta. It took longer for the water to boil on the new KitchenAid - even while using the high BTU burner - then it did on the old GE. I am very disappointed with KitchenAid. They are not like they used to be. It seems to be nothing more than a Whirlpool in a "pretty dress" with poor cooking performance - all at a high premium price. Thankfully Best Buy has a 14-day return policy.

    Wife has been wanting a double oven for a while. Got this one at Best Buy as an open box display model at a fantastic price. The double oven is great! We've only used the bottom oven a couple of times. Most everything can be done in the smaller top oven and it only takes a few minutes to heat up. Coming from a LG gas stove and the quality on this one is much better. My only complaint so far is I used the griddle over the middle burner and it didn't get very hot. Next time I'll try it over the burners on the side.

    Large Gas Stove

    It is a very nice gads stove to look at. It does stick further out from the cabinets than my previous stove. It functions well and very pleased with the new stove. HEADS UP: The section of the stove to allow for the gas pipe coming up from the floor is located on the left side of the unti.. My previous stove had the space for the pipe in the middle of the stove. I had to hire someone to move the gas pipe from the floor to accommodate the space/section on the stove so that you can push the unit back to the wall. It still sticks out past the cabinets.

    I’ve had the stove for a few months now. Purchased it mainly for the color and the double oven. Color is beautiful though I had forgotten how dirty white gets. I thought I’d use the middle grate, but it seems too small for me. Please note, when open, the lower over touches my floor which I found peculiar. I hit my floor every time I open it. It’s really low to the ground. Just thought those who don’t like bending over too much might object to this. Otherwise it’s okay. Not too special but boy does it look good!

    Nice Stove but be careful

    OK. This stove is great, I've cooked lots with it since I got it and have had no problems. My problem came when I cleaned it. I took the grates off the top, and the edge above the knobs on the inside (can't be seen unless you bend over the top) is razor sharp! Cut two of my fingers, one worse than the other. I'm not sure if this is just where the sheet metal is not secured completely on mine, or if it's on all of them, but be careful.

    I've just recently purchased this stove so my review is limited to that time, but in that time I'm loving it. The burners are much stronger then those on my last stove, it seems the flames are larger and even. The oven heats up quickly and with everything being so digital it's almost as if you don't have to do any work at all to prepare a meal. My only complaint would be the tape residue that is left on the inside of the doors, it does not seem to want to come off and of course I do not want it burning and making marks on my new stove.

    We looked at various double ovens and decided on gas over electric. Though we've cooked with electric for over 40 years, this gas double oven is great, It heats faster and is more controllable than the electric smooth top we just replaced. We chose KitchenAid because of the style of the top grates. It's also convection in the bottom oven and the bottom oven is huge. The spark ignition is super and helps save energy This was definitely the "Best Buy" for us and I think you'll like it to

    Nice looking range with excellent features, but takes some getting used to. First attempts at baking were not good as it took much longer to bake than it should have. After buying an oven thermometer, it was discovered that the oven was not up to temperature when the range said it was. Full preheating takes about 10 min longer that the range indicates. Once you wait the extra time,the oven temperature is quite accurate.

    Beautiful but scratches way too easily

    Posted
    JenniferAnn131313

    I purchased this in early November so I have used it for just over a month now. It really is a beautiful stove and I feel that it does work well. My only complaint which is a big one is that the top scratches SO easily. I have tried to be so careful and gentle but it seems impossible for it to not scratch. The grates shift around and leave scratches all over. So for only having for a month it does not look like a new stove and I find that very annoying.

    The Range has everything we were looking for convection oven, stainless steel, enough useable cooking space and has a small oven to bake pizzas or heat smaller dishes . However down side is that burners create a yellow burn mark on the stainless steel cover. We have not been able to figure out how to clean the burn/yellow best way to describe it . when you heat up a shiny metal you can see the different color marks.

    This is the best range in the universe. It is gorgeous, and bursting with wonderful features. The griddle/griddle burner, in addition to the four-burners (one great high BTU burner), is super convenient. The small top oven is a particular blessing, that we use far more often than the "regular-sized" oven below. We love having the warming options, as well as the convection and self-cleaning. This range is worth every single penny of the price. A great value.
