    I bought a similar Kitchenaid 3 years ago and it was great. We recently moved so thought another one would be good. Only not so much. First the oven door and sides get very warm when baking the old one did not. Also the overall sense of quality just isn't there. The glass cooktop is harder to clean. I haven't tried the steam cleaning yet but am skeptical about that. The salesperson said it also had regular self cleaning but I haven't found any settings for that. As for Best Buy I tried to exchange this for something different but they said I was 2 weeks past the exchange period. I explained that during the ongoing moving process that we didn't have much occasion to use it and they also would not use the delivery date as opposed to using the purchase date when considering the exchange period. Not happy with Best Buy either. And one last item. When I wrote a review similar to the one here on Kitchenaid's website they took it down.

    GREAT OVEN...REALLY

    Let me start by saying that I'm a professional baker and do most of my private baking at home (so no Wolff or Viking ranges here). I needed to replace my range and had originally ordered this range from another retailer. While waiting for it, I was advised to get an Electrolux instead, so I did. See my reviews...I will NEVER get another one of those - sent 2 of them back. ANYWAY...I finally got my Kitchenaid, but from Best Buy #and no wait). This range is fabulous. Cooktop heats quickly and the oven bakes like a rock star - in the first few days home it has turned out several cakes and batches of cookies, temperature is perfect and no hot spots. I would have given 5 stars across the board if the oven heated up a little quicker. But overall this is an EXCELLENT range, especially at this price.

    Worst range ever

    This is the worst stove I ever had. If I could trade it in today, I would. The self cleaning is a joke, distilled water won't clean a stove. I have spent hours on my hands and knees scrubbing to try and get this oven clean. I don't spill that much, I think just the act of cooking in the oven leaves residue...I truly do hate this stove and would not recommend it to anyone.

    Seems to take a long time to preheat oven. Love the looks of the appliance. Need to clean up spills right away on cooktop or it's hard to clean afterwards.

    Preheat is slow, but no complaints about stove. The burners heat up fast and the stove looks great.
