Take advantage of the large cooking surface of this Whirlpool gas range. Its EZ-2-Lift hinged grates cover the entire top of the appliance, letting you slide large pots across the five burners. The true convection oven of this Whirlpool gas range has a 5.8 cu. ft. capacity so you can cook for a crowd.

This oven has a modern look and sports modern electronics that assist you if you are moving from the traditional baking oven to the convection oven (more on that later)
The oven sits in a kitchen with black granite inlaid with brown and brings a touch of class to the kitchen. The electronics lay flat across the front (no reaching over burners to set the oven or turn on a burner) and are overlaid with glass. this makes the display (for the oven) easy to read and easy to clean. The touch screen controls operate just like your phone; touch the glass and the controls respond. I find that I like this better than the controls that have a membrane that can deteriorate over time.
Their are four burners of various sizes. The two small burners are in the back and the smallest does a nice job at simmering. I use it to reduce sauces and I find that the lowest setting offers just enough flame to do the job. Cooking with large pots/pans and quickly bringing oil or water to the temperature you want is not a problem with the large burners at the front. The burner control knobs also are up front above the oven door and are well made. If you pull one off you can tell they are hefty and the center slot that takes the torque when you turn the burners on looks well supported so I do not fear that it will split over time.
An iron grate that hinges at the back lays over the burners. This seemed nicer in the store. Once installed, I realized that for my layout, I would not be able to flip the grates (one on the left and one on the right) all the way up while cleaning because they would hit the over the oven microwave well before they could balance at an open position. No worries though as the grates can be removed easily as well. My only negative observation related to the grates at this point is that, while using smaller pans on the back burner (like a small frying pan or sauce pan), I find that the pans can tilt if you try to center them over the burner because the spacing of the grates for each burner have too large a space before the next section of the grate (see photo).
Now, for you techies out there you will love how Whirlpool has brought baking into modern times. pressing the home button will bring up a two option menu. Cooking Method or Assisted Cooking. Cooking Method allows you to quickly choose your broil, bake, convection, warm, etc. options. For those who have baked for years this is a great option. The second option is the assisted cooking menu and... well... I think you can read the literature so I can keep my review shorter. Suffice it to say that it will "step" you through a series of questions to determine just the right amount of time to cook a plethora f foods.
I have used the oven about six times over the last month and love the bake to convection conversion the oven does for me. Hooking it up to your cell phone is a cool feature, but I would rate the usefulness of this more a novelty than a truly useful addition. I will say one thing about it though. I do like the idea of having the oven send me alerts that my timer is completed if I set it at the oven. But for now, I find that I stick with my old habits and just ask my phone to set a timer.
The cavity of the oven sports three adjustable racks. It's too new for me to comment about cleaning. I have used the broiler to cook beacon and find that it preformed that task well. It has done terrific in the convection mode making the casseroles and a cake come out perfectly browned.
In my opinion, you can't go wrong with this oven. It is well made, looks fantastic, has modern features, and most importantly, performs well.
Love this range, but there are somethings that I have to get use to.
- First you have to LOCK the Touch control for the ove when you are cleaning it because you will activate the oven it by accident.
- Also be very careful that you don't touch the controls by accident when cooking because you can accidently turn it off.
I have downloaded the Whirlpool app on my phone as well as synced it up to my Echo Show. Love this feature. I was a little challenging to set up with Alexa. If you are having issues setting it up DO NOT call AMAZON call WHIRLPOOL. Amazon had me on the phone for almost an hour and still couldn't solve. Called Whirlpool and it was synced in 3 mins.
The sleek look is a excellent add to my kitchen!
Temperature of the oven seems to be true, everything so far has cooked per instructions. Looks good with all the upgraded appliances. Only had it for about 2 months now so we’ll see. Good price at Best Buy.
My old range was taking forever to preheat and some of the lighters didn't work properly so knew it was time for an upgrade...
I really wanted the convenience of waking up and telling Alexa to preheat my oven since I cook my own breakfast every morning... I did a little bit of research and came across this model... Other brands had worse reviews when it came to the "smart" portion of the oven...
I was worried because some people said the "smart" function wasn't compatible with their router... I have a one year old router from Best Buy for Xfinity... I was relieved when everything worked fine!
I opted for no install and was a little worried when they dropped it off and thought I might have made a mistake... But 10-15 mintues later (since I didn't need a gas conversion) it was ez pz… Just a wrench to tighten the connector and I was good to go...
As usual, don't be alarmed after first use because it does smoke quite a bit to burn off the chemicals from the factory which is perfectly normal...
Very happy with my purchase! Setup with the app on my phone was relatively easy and getting it to work with Alexa was too...
I love the style of it, especially the 5 burners on the stove top. The oven works great too with many features including convection bake/roast. The oven controls are touch screen and are very sensitive to touch. I frequently have to clean or wipe down the panel that contains the touch controls and wiping over the touch pad seems to make future use of the touch controls very difficult. And sometimes, I won't even touch any of the controls at all, yet something has been triggered. Not sure what to do about this yet.
