Great induction range!
Comments about KitchenAid Kitchen-Aid 29.937" Free Standing Electric Range - Black with Stainless Steel:
Excellent range! If you haven't used induction cooking before, stop waiting. The large CLEAR glass window to the oven is great so you dont have to open the door to see everything inside. Also, the middle rack pulls all the way out and can support a full roast, etc with ease. I knew the bottom drawer was a warming drawer but I wasn't expecting it to be so small. If you are planning to use it as a storage drawer, you will be sad when you see how little fits, just FYI. No fault of the range, but just be mindful. We have a small kitchen as is, so the extra space we're using to store some backing dishes is a bummer. There is also a small design flaw (I guess?) - on the front of the unit behind the handle / above the window are vents for some reason. We found them when we spilled something on the cooktop and liquid went into the vents - they lead to BETWEEN the outer and inner glass panes of the door, with no way to get in there for cleaning.... maybe I can take the door apart to clean in there but I haven't checked into that yet. Oh and the AquaLift cleaning system is OK but you have to use it often if you want the inside of your oven to stay clean. It won't turn year old baked on crust into dust. But it works fine!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Really like this way of cooking
By RGS1and 2

While I have given the other Kitchenaid appliances we purchased a four-star rating because of weak documentation (instruction manuals) the range gets the full five stars because we have had a chance to use it more, and the maul seemed more complete. The immediate responsiveness of the induction cooktop takes a bit of getting used to but it cooks very nicely. We really like the fact that it heats quickly and reduces heat almost immediately, making it very easy to adjust. I used to have to put my old electric range on high to heat it up then turn it down. Not so with the induction because it responds quickly. The conventional/convection oven cooks very nicely and is easy to use. We have cooked meat and baked bread with excellent results. We haven't used the warming oven yet.

I an happy with the double oven feature. I am not happy with the cooktop. When my husband & I purchased this stove from your Lafayette store, the sales man took a quarter & tried to scratch the top of the cook top. It didn't keave a mark. My cooktop has two big scratches on it. I have never sat anything, but pans I am cooking with on the cooktop. I have enclosed a picture. That is my only complaint on the cooktop.

purchased over a month ago. Love the double ovens. Not happy with the smooth black top. Shows every scratch. This is my second smooth top stove and my 8 yr old stoves shows less scratches than my new stove.

Very nice looking, love the double oven. However, not sure if there is something wrong with the burners. It glows and dims a lot whilst cooking and seems to take forever to cook sometimes no matter which setting its on.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great features and styling
from East Earl, PA, United States
We bought this a month or so ago and are extremely happy! We believe the value of this appliance is worth the price.

This stove is OK, but, some issues need to be addressed. The sales people didn't do a very good job of explaining the after installation operation. We had to review the users manual several times to discover the quirks that make it work. There are so many bells and whistles that it takes several operations to understand the details. The glass top is more difficult to maintain than our old stove. Time may change that, but for now I cannot give this range a better evaluation.
Wasn't sure I would like the induction - but it heats so fast! I love the convection cooking and all the racks in the oven. The nice viewing window is great for baking!
Love the features

Very happy with this purchase. The double ovens are great for the holidays.
Large Oven Space
from Maltby, WA, United States
Love my new range. Agree with previous reviewers that there are issues with the temperature and cook times. I believe this is due to the large size of the oven and the fact that there is only a heating element on the top. I have learned to adjust the temperature up 25 degrees and it works perfectly. I have had no issues and am generally happy with the purchase of this oven.
