    Good range if you have only basic needs

    After two exchanges, this range finally meets our crazy requirements. We originally purchased a Frigidaire Gallery range that was highly rated by consumer reports along with a Frigidaiere gallery microwave oven. But after delivery found that the space between our range and microwave was only 13" and the knob markings on the stainless steel range were impossible to see without sticking our heads in the resulting hot tunnel between the two. So, after using it for a few weeks we gave up and exchanged it for a Samsung with larger and easy to read knobs. But the installers were unable to install it flush within two inches of the rear wall due to our floor mounted electric plug, who would have anticipated that problem? So back it went as we exchanged it for a second time. This time we went with the Maytag as it was the only one left that looked like it might fit in our older kitchen, (of course this one was the only one not on sale) it fit and we can see the knob markings without scalding our face. We have other Maytag appliances that we like and are aging well so were hopeful this one too will last a few years. So far we just used the smooth top which heats evenly. Consumer reports rates this Maytag model highly except for the self cleaning function (a newer low heat wet cleaning method) which it rates only as "fair" but we can hand clean touch up if necessary. We had to buy four new appliances from Best Buy this year, as our old Samsung appliances all managed to quit on us (they were between 3 and 5 years old). So, after that experience, we purchased Best Buys service contracts (a first for us). Were glad we choose Best Buy as our appliance store, they really do stand by their exchange and price match policy.. We'd like to thank Dave Singer and also Jeremy ? at the Northglenn store for their professional hand holding during all this, both great guys to do business with, you might want to ask for one of them if your in the market for a new appliance!

    I've had this stove 30 days and love it. Huge cooktop, extra burner, (burner in burner) and a warming burner. It's so efficient and dishes cook faster and better with proper heat, soup is piping hot, heats up immediately. The oven is a dream, very spacious, and bakes superbly used both bake options and love them both. If you clean oil and any dropped items right away (around the burner) it wipes easily. I find it easy to clean with a paper towel, napkin, or sometimes a dishcloth. Also, no worry about scratches, I use regular favorites and also well-care for cookware, however, I did hand wash then dish washed all pans, pots, and tea pot, because I did not want old cooked on spots on fav pan bottom or sides to become active due to the new intense heat. Please do this if you use old favorites that are stained. I bought this to replace a coil stove because am selling the house but, did not want to put a cheap stove in; I want the new owner to enjoy this stove like I would not - hate it. I know I will get my $s in the sale, no new homeowner wants to go out and buy a new stove because they're so unhappy with what came with it. Yes, drawer is not as sturdy and smaller, so don't man handle it (lol) I use for cookie sheets and other flat cookware. It's also is a really nice looking stove, very large, my last stove cooktop was dinky compared to this, so cooking multiple dishes is so much better, stove is easy to use. Highly recommended.

    Mostly Great

    I've had this stove for several months now and this is my assessment. First the good points: I love the way it cooks, although the oven bakes a little hotter than my previous stove. I really like the convection feature. I prepared a large Thanksgiving dinner on it and the oven was large enough for a big turkey, plus several other dishes. The warming eye on the stovetop came in handy also. The glass stovetop is easy to clean, especially with some of the cleaners made especially for this feature. I've not had any problems with scratching the top, etc. Of course I try to be careful and only use pans with a flat bottom. Bad points: Whoever said this is an "easy clean" oven must not have lived in the days when all of us had to clean their own oven. This oven is NOT easy to clean. Not being able to use any cleaners on it besides water greatly hampers being able to get off cooked on grease, even scraping with a plastic scraper. Plus the fact that if you are middle-aged and beyond, getting down on one's hands and knees to clean the oven is not pleasant. The only complaint with this stove is the oven has to be cleaned FREQUENTLY to stay clean, because if you don't you'll never get off all the cooked off mess! I've not had any real messes in it yet, and I'm having trouble getting it clean. In spite of all the pleasure it gives me to cook on it, I wish I had bought a self-clean oven!

    Crooked warranty sticker driving me nuts!

    Okay, okay, I realize this is a nitpicky little thing, but my beautiful new Maytag electric range was just delivered two days ago. I’ve barely used it. Here’s the thing: the ‘10 YEAR WARRANTY ‘ sticker so prominently displayed on the front of the range is crooked, and not by just a little. Photo attached. I say ‘sticker ‘ but it is actually a metal placard. It’s driving me NUTS! Bought the whole suite and the one on the fridge is crooked too, but not as badly. Makes me wonder about quality control some. I do hope actual performance of the appliances makes me forget about this silly cosmetic problem. Still...

    This range is Fantastic. Cooking on this stove top is a dream. It cooks evenly no hot spots. It cooks fast. I made an authentic rice dish it usually takes hours for the rice to cook tender not with this range. The oven is the best I've ever used. I can bake cookies and they come out perfect completely golden brown top and bottom. I'm very happy with this range. I've had an induction range and it was horrible always breaking not cooking right. I thought I had lost my touch but it was just the range. We are sold on the Maytag brand and will only purchase Maytag because this is a wonderful product. Oh if you touch pad seems like it can't feel you moisturize you hands.

    Can’t say enough good things about this product. Everything I expected after researching oven/cooktops for days. I was after the largest oven out there and full convection. The hidden element is a plus and I was worried about length of time to preheat. Preheated oven to make homemade pizzas at 475 deg was there in no time. I have not had to clean oven as yet so not sure about aqua cleaning, which almost made me shy away from this product. But glad I didn’t. The 3 racks and several positions make this oven perfect. Larger oven, smaller storage drawer, but not an issue with me.

    Hard to clean spills

    I did not like this smooth top stove at all! This was my first smooth top and I didn't really know which was better, glass or ceramic. I went with the glass top and hate it! I can NOT clean up the simpilest of spills. I boiled water and the water splatters will not wipe clean! I had a small butter spill and I could not wipe it, nor scrape it with the scrapper they included. I have returned it and today got another one, with a ceramic smooth top. It actually came with some marks on the smooth top, as if it was a return, and the delivery guy could not get those marks off. I have a feeling this one is going back as well. Not happy and want my old coil stove back!

    I chose the range due to the reviews, appearance and Large oven space. I also went with Maytag due to the 10 year warranty. I have had my range for 1 month and I am very pleased with it. I converted over from a gas range and had concerns about going to a glass cook top. Some of the reviews I read stated it was hard to clean. I purchased a Cerama Bryte cleaning kit and cleaning the cook top has been very easy. I only rated this a 4 due to the bottom shelf being very flimsy. I do not use it due to it not opening and closing with ease.

    Defective right out of box

    Delivery guys checked the burners upon delivery but left before checking the electronics. Defective motherboard so could not set time, use oven, etc (the electronics on this stove are too complex even if it wouldn't have been defective - e.g., requires 2 extra steps just to set the clock compared to any other stove I have ever seen). Called Maytag who concluded it was defective & had us call Best Buy to determine return/exchange/refund. Decided to exchange for a different brand comparable stove. Had to wait another week for return pick-up & delivery because of busy Super Bowl week backlog. Best Buy 15 day return policy definitely helpful in this case.

    Best Christmas Ever

    I love this oven. I got it on Christmas Eve. My convection fan in my Samsung oven went out and I was concerned about making dinner without it. Although I had been using the non-convection setting for a while I could tell my oven was starting to fail. So my husband got me this. I love it and it works great. There is one detail I would change. On the Maytag convection settings, if you need to preheat your oven to 350 degrees, you must add 25 degrees. If you do not, the oven will only heat to 325. It's not an issue when you figure it out. You just have to remember to add 25 degrees to what your recipe calls for so you get the correct temperature.

    Do not recommend

    • My Best Buy® Member

    When I first received this stove it was damaged (large dent on side) and had to wait a month to get it switched for a new one. Exactly a month later while cooking dinner the burners suddenly quit working on me. For it to be so expensive of a brand and it being said it is a very good brand I hate having to keep having issues with it. I am a big cooker and baker and had researched for a quality stove but unfortunately this one is not one I can recommend.

    Big Oven, Little Storage Drawer

    Generally, my husband and I do a lot of research before making a big purchase but we had to buy this stove in a hurry as ours died right before Thanksgiving. It did a great job of handling all of our holiday cooking needs. The convection feature makes for perfectly done meat. The only downside so far is that, with such a huge oven, the storage drawer on the bottom is quite small so pans must be arranged just so before the drawer will close. Also, the storage drawer feels a little flimsy in comparison to the rest of the solidly-built unit.

    This is a really nice looking range. There are plenty of Options and settings. The glass is more clear than any other range I have had, and the extra space inside is much needed for someone who cooks a lot. The convection options are really nice and really help evenly cook meats. I do a ton of cooking and use it daily. It seems to work best on the bottom but doesn't really do a good job on the sides. The stove top has nice options too, power heating which boils water really quick and warming center. Pros Good Size & Weight, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Stylish

    The oven is working out great and looks good My issue is with the delivery company Best Buy contracts with. Poor, poor, poor service! They fabricated being called by us and told to cancel the order! Interestingly enough, they told my neighbor the same story when they were having their purchases delivered! I mean really?! Someone called them claiming to be us , got irate with them and cancelled the delivery?! And the same thing, months apart, with our friend?! When my wife expressed her dismay with them, they offered cash for her not to call the store and complain.

    The stove is nice and seems to work well so far. The oven is large which makes it nice when you're baking because you can get multiple things in there at the same time. That being said, you do lose the drawer space which is a downside to the stove. So far that is my only gripe. I am having a little difficulty getting the settings on the stove adjusted. It's more of a learning curve than anything. The burners on this stove heat much better than faster than my old one so I've set the smoke detectors off in the house a time or two. Oops! Overall, I like the stove.

    This oven has a lot of great features like convection mode and Aqua clean and is very large. The controls take a bit of getting use to and the temperature settings of the burners will take some trial and error to know where to set for medium heat. The bottom drawer is not very useful at all as it can only fit flatter items. Only feature I miss on my old stove as I had all of my saucepans and skillets inside the drawer previously.

    I've used this oven already and I'm very impressed. I have Le Creuset cookware and my previous stovetop wouldn't heat the pots evenly so I always had to deal with hotspots and uneven heating. Not anymore... the burners are great in that they heat up quickly and evenly. And so far no scratches on the glass top. Also all of the controls for the oven are very easy to use and it works very well. Only complaint is the somewhat flimsy bottom drawer. Great purchase overall and highly recommended!

    My favorite convenience feature is the dual-size left burner. My favorite space feature is the 3rd/bottom oven rack which is shaped to fit the indention at the base of the oven, allowing taller items to fit while still using more than one rack. My favorite style feature is the oven door handle, the rod-like style is sleek and industrial. I'm so excited to have the convection oven feature so that I can get more even baking results (and crispy edges for my fries!)

    Nice to see America can still build a quality appliance. Parts are warranted for 10 years. Oven is extremely large at 6.4 cubic feet but storage drawer below oven is extremely shallow, and will not srore more than a few cookie sheets or shallow cake pans. Burner surface includes a a dedicated warmer (nice), but like most flat cooking surfaces needs cleaned regularly or will retain stains. Overall it's a quality range that cooks very well and distributes heat very evenly.

    Love the range! Love how fast the burners heat up and the convection works great! The only thing I would change on this is the left front burner--instead of a 6"/12" dual burner, I would so a 9"/12" or better yet, make it a 6"/9"/12" triple burner! Has a nice sleek look to it. Other reviews said how easy it scratches--and I was worried--it is no different than my Whirlpool glass top!
