      It's okay but not great

      Posted

      Okay, so first I want to start off by saying that before I purchased this oven I had a very old gas range. It was only gas nothing power about it. When the ancient thing finally gave out, I was almost excited because that meant I got a new one. I was lucky enough to find this one on sale. It looked nice and the review seemed to be mostly good. I wasn't happy that it didn't come in other color options, we had just re-done my kitchen and went with white appliance. Despite the black and stainless finish, I ordered it anyway because the cost was good. The range cooks well and evenly, however the black is the worst part about it. I have two small dogs and between the hair they throw up and just the smallest spill of salt shows up on the cook top like nothing else, even when I clean it, the rag leaves behind lint which also shows up. I've used paper towels and sponges but nothing seems to leave behind a clean look, always leaving dry water spots. Other than the black, the other thing I don't like is how the burners are set up. The front two are power burners, meaning they are the biggest and will cook the hottest/fastest. The burner in the back is very small and is for simmer. I don't like that set up and didn't realize it before I bought it. I like to have the big pots in the back so I don't have to reach across big pots to get the the smaller pots. Not to mention if I only have one big pot to boil water, I like to have it in the back away from the edge. The oven cooks well and evenly. I like the digital oven temp and timer, I don't know if I will like it when the power goes out since the only way to use the oven is if you have power, but how often do I cook when a storm knocks out power? Pros, cooks good, not too expensive. Cons, black shows everything imaginable, and burners are set up weird.

      Perfect for what I bought it for

      First before reviewing the product itself, allow me please to review the seller. I made this purchase online. It was very easy to buy and I got it delivered to my house for no extra charge. The delivering company representatives are very friendly and very helpful. I didn't order the installation and planned to do it myself. The guys asked me if I want to change my mind! I said no. I want to do it myself. So, without asking (or extra charges) they assisted me on connecting the propane line to the oven and checked it for leak before I pushed the oven into its spot. Unbelievable... Now the oven range: It is just fine. Way better than the old one (which is obvious) it has a nice way to control the oven. I like the top with the distribution of the burners. The oven heats up really fast and the burners deliver even flame around the 360 degree (unlike my previous range). One issue I had with the oven that the bulb came with defect. The bulb was out of the sockets as the glue came off or something. I called bestbuy about it and they offered me an oven range replacement with free installation as they don't carry the bulb or I had to call whirlpool. After some research I found out that it has not to be a special (Whirlpool bulb) and just any appliances bulb with the advised Watts. That's what the rep at bestbuy failed to explain to me. She has no experience with that! She maybe just tried to tell me that I can't put any bulb in there. Got that bulb in Walmart. Very cheap... and no need to call Whirlpool or replace the oven. I knew this oven has no self cleaning function but it is not hard to clean at all. Jut you need to have the right tools. Happy with the purchase and very satisfied with the seller.

      So disappointed

      Posted

      I'm so disappointed in this gas range. My children put their money together to buy me this range for Christmas. Although it looks beautuiful it's awful. It's so hard to clean. Immediately the grates on top looked scratched and used. The surface under the grates in impossible to clean. I have to scrub and scrub to get normal cooking stuff off the surface. It's like the surface under the grates isn't finished or something. The actual burner covers won't clean. The silver ring around the burner under the cover turned black in spots the first time I used it and won't come clean now. I've tried. The handle on the outside of the oven door gets hot and I have to use a hot pad to open the oven door. The little rubber pads on the 4 feet of the grate have melted and they fall out. I have to keep putting the melted rubber foot back in. I had a pie spill over during cooking inside the oven. I went to clean it up and it wouldn't clean. I used oven cleaner and was still only able to get part of the spill off the inside. It's just so disappointing to receive such a nice gift from my kids and the range not be what it's said to be.

      Good Price, Good Stove, Bad Instruction Manual

      I had been looking to replace my very old gas stove, and the price on this one was the best I'd seen. Overall, I am very happy with it---it looks good, works well, and does all the basics I need done, with the added advantage of coming with a removable griddle. My only problems were in installing it (I needed to replace the gas cutoff valve, and wasn't told this in advance, which delayed and complicated installation) and in using the control panel, which is not explained well in the instructions. I had to randomly try several methods of setting the clock, and I am still unclear on how exactly to operate the oven. Once I manage to get it working, it works very well, but I still feel as though I just push buttons until it begins to heat up. This makes using the oven annoying. Clear instructions would have caused me to give it full marks; as it is, I can't award it the highest marks. But I will still recommend it to a friend---maybe they can figure it out and then show me how to work the controls!

      Great Stove

      The cooktop is nice. This meaning the grates are thick and sturdy. I have highstandards. This stove is just ok. It does not have the high end look. The digital ccontrol in the center is cheap looking and is indeed the least liked quality point of thisstove. Now for the reason im writing this review. For the price its great, ifyou want somthing that looks more expensive your going to have to pay more. I read a review about the oven taking a long time to to heat up and wouldnt get over 200 degrees. I had this problem and its easy to fix. There is pressure release valve on the back of the oven where the gas line connects with a little lever on it. if it isnt in the correct position it will not let any gas into the ovens burner. Just flip it and walla. Note that the cooking burners ontop of the stove will still work even if this valve isin the incorrect position. Mine would not go over 200 degrees without this fix. It heats upto 500 now very quickley.

      Very Functional and Efficient

      This stove was definitely more than I bargained for. The stove top rack is composed of two pieces that allows for you to have the 4 main burners on but still allows for other pots to be warmed up or slowly simmered (I imagine this scenario come Thanksgiving time). The two front burners are high powered for larger pots of fare such as boiling water for spaghetti or frying up some steaks. The back burners are more for simmering such as gravies or frying up bacon but could definitely take on the function of the front burners (really the burner plates are just larger in the front and allows for more intense heat). The stove comes with a flat grill (for things like pancakes) that you can tuck away when not in use. The oven part is fast, efficient and has a styling window for viewing. I'm overall pleased with the product and it's performance!

      Delivery of the new/removal of the old was actually early the day of delivery (they called to say they were ahead of schedule and the earlier timing worked better for me, which was helpful). If you expect them to unhook your old stove, be sure your house is up to code with a shut off gas value behind the old oven (ours wasn't but my plumber was nearby and willing to come right over at the last minute to assure the deliverers that the gas was shut off so the old stove could be unhooked and removed). The feet at the bottom of the oven screwed easily to make it level. It all works great and looks really nice. I had read reviews to learn that it didn't have a broiler pan or a rack in the broiler area...I got a small broiler pan online for $15 instead. It would be nice to have that extra rack...not that I do a lot of baking/broiling at the same time to make it matter, though. I'm glad I chose this range!

      Beautiful gas range & easy to use

      I brought this gas range for my mom. She loves its clean look. She loves that it has the griddle plate and has used it to make pancakes and corn tortillas from scratch. She is elderly and speaks/reads spanish so she needed help understanding the push buttons features for the oven etc. It was easy for me to use those functions without reading the manual so I'd say it is user friendly. The iron cooking covers come in two parts so they are easy to remove and clean for a person with normal strength. For an elderly person this may be a bit challenging because of the weight. I like that the oven will turn off once the time set is reached so that is pretty cool for a person that might forget to turn off the oven. Overall this is a great product. I believe this model is not a self cleaning model.
