    The Perfect Stove

    Posted
    TheLazyCookie

    My new KitchenAid Gas Range (Architect Series II) is my first brand-new stove, and it has everything: looks like a professional chef's range and produces a flame that's adjustable from very high heat to very low. There's also a reversible grate to support my wok. Besides that, my new stove has a convection oven that makes everything I cook taste tender, juicy and better than my old ordinary oven. Because it blows the heat around the food, it uses lower temperatures and less time than nonconvection ovens. I can also delay the start of cooking, so my food is ready when I get home from work. Below the oven is a warming drawer that works for heating plates, holding hot bread and side dishes, and keeping dinner warm during unexpected delays. Last, but not least, the oven cleans itself! What a blessing for getting rid of those baked-on spatters and fruit pie spills. Thanks, Kitchen-Aid, for answering my fondest dream! --The Lazy Cookie

    Don't buy it!

    Have this range and it has been a nightmare!!!! From the first time that I tried to use the self cleaning feature and EVERY time afterwards, the oven stops cleaning in the middle of the cleaning cycle and locks the oven door so that it cannot be opened until a repairman comes out to do a repair. Go online and type in this oven model as I did recently and you will see the many, many others that are having the same problem. I complained about this to an appliance sales lady recently and she said that she had the same range and it did the same thing for her. On self cleaning mode, it blows out the entire electronic panel each time! Also, I am using the one large burner for almost all of my cooking as the two smallest burners are useless unless your want to melt butter in a pan.

    Works great when it works

    We loved the range for about a day until the oven and broiler stopped working. Best Buy contracted with A&E Factory Service (SEARS) to make the warranty repair. A&E were responsive and good but it took them 3 visits to repair the oven. One visit to diagnose the problem. On the next visit they replaced the oven circuit board and that got the broiler working but not the oven. On the final visit they replaced the gas valve and now the oven works again.. The digital controls are well laid out and the oven heats quickly and maintains an even temperature. Convection works well too. Burners have lots of heat and control. Next time I would buy the dual fuel version instead of a gas oven.

    Disappointing purchase...

    I was so excited to purchase this new range. Since having it a year and a half...I am looking at replacing the cooling motor in it. It is difficult to clean the top and the gas oven is constantly kicking on and off and the noise is bothersome. The cast iron grates scratch easily and I don't find that the burners put off as much heat as I was expecting. The oven shelves seem too close together. Overall, I was just disappointed with this purchase and I am a pretty positive individual, but this was a let down for me. The one thing I can say about it is that it is a pretty appliance.

    Almost Perfect

    This is a great range, love the controls, and the looks it gives the kitchen. Instead of a warming drawer is should have a total use second oven on the bottom for the price. Also it Porcelain tops are very hard to clean. But other than two hold ups I love the range, the convention baking, along with the self cleaning feature. The shelves could be space a little better.

    Stellar looks, very sophisticated for the price

    A very professional look, very easy to use, while I had a contractor install this appliance, it was fairly challenging. Note that best buy may tell you that this is a free standing oven with the look of a slide in, it's not, it's a slide in which rests on your counters and has about a 3" space to the backsplash. Just a heads up. No complaints at all and looks great.

    I bought this slide in range and it was installed about 3 weeks ago. The performance of the range is excellent so far, but have yet to bake or broil anything in the stove. Love the continuous grate design and sealed burners does making cleaning the cook top a breeze.

    I purchased it because of the special promo. it is a nice gas range. It cooks very good and i still need to figure out convection part. (WHEN TO USE IT). One thing that i am not use to is you have to push start after you put in temp.

    we like that the grates cover the entire top and also converts for a wok. The handles are nice and sturdy, lookes like a professional stove. The stinless and top are easy to clean. The oven heats and holds the temperature steady. Matches our other appliances.

    Great range with convection cooking. Convection cooked in way less time and automatically converted the temp from regular cooking. Would definently recommend!
