Looks Gorgeous and Very Functional
from Hillsboro, OR, United States
Comments about KitchenAid 30" Free Standing Gas Range - Stainless Steel:
The stove was delivered about two months ago, after a long wait, while I think they were redesigning the control panel. I am extremely pleased with this stove. First, it is a beautiful piece and a great complement to our other stainless steel pieces. Second, I love the multiple control functions which are part of this model. I have used almost all of them at least several times and find that all work as described. The convection oven has raised my desire to bake and cook in the oven. The slide out rack is very handy feature. The slow cook drawer is marvelous for making a small slow cook meal when you don't want to get out the crock pot. The high output burner boils water very quickly and the simmer burner is perfect for holding items while the rest of the meal is finishing. The center burner seems a bit useless as it blocks all the other burners when a pot is placed there, maybe I am missing something. The large glass oven window is a real plus for checking on items without having to open the door. Third it is a bit of high maintenance in that the burner catch area does show that you have been using the stove, but it is an easy cleanup if you do it regularly. A true oven cleaning cycle is not available and the oven cleaning function using water is a bit weak and requires some extra effort to finish the job. I would highly recommend this stove for the serious cook.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

More features than I have ever had on an stove. Oven bakes may things at the same time and the racks are adjustable to fit many different sizes. I love the glass door front and the five burners. The griddle is perfect to cook pancakes.

Overall I'm very satisfied with this product. Like the easy pull out middle rack. Warming drawer comes in handy

I selected this range specifically because it had both a griddle and a full-extension oven rack. Each of these features has a serious flaw: the fifth burner is dead-center in the range top and when you place the griddle on the burner there is not enough clearance to use any other pans on the range. To use the griddle across two other burners you have to use a combination of either the high-speed burner with a small burner, or the simmer burner with a normal large burner. Both of these combinations is almost impossible to adjust so the flame is always unequal. The full-extension oven rack works perfectly with light weight pans but when I try to use it with my enameled cast iron Dutch oven the weight of the pan seems to keep the rack from extending. The knobs get very hot when the oven is used for long roasting, but that is not unique to this range. I bake a lot, and this is probably the most evenly heating gas oven I have every had. I love the way the top cast iron grids interlock. The fact that resetting the timer also turns off the oven is so aggravating that I have stopped using the timer. The range is very easy to clean and is attractive.

The burners are all the correct power level and the griddle is AWESOME and completely non stick. Oven racks are very nice and LOVE the stainless top.
This range is easy to use and works flawlessly
from Cass City, MI 48726, USA
We are thrilled with all the features of this range. The double oven worked well for Thanksgiving dinner. We like the grill, we make pancakes every Sunday and it is a breeze to clean up. Be cautious with hard objects such as pots, pans and changing the griddle and burners as the stainless does scratch easily. Overall it is an excellent piece.
Love this stove!
from Anchorage, AK, USA
We have been wanting this stove for a while. We finally saved our pennies and haven't been disappointed. It was great to have our thanksgiving turkey cooking in the bottom oven and still have the upper oven to bake pies. The burners are arranged well and the griddle makes awesome pancakes. The only thing that is a bit odd is when the rack for the top oven is at its Lowest level it hits the door when you pull it out to remove whatever you are baking.
Had to be Replaced after 2nd Use
from Henderson, NV, USA
I bought this stove mainly because of its features and the KichenAid brand. What a disappointment! Upon using the oven a second time while baking a vegetable lasagna the control panel went out. After contacting Whirlpool, they sent out a technician and he unplugged the stove and rebooted it and it came back on. He said he would replace the control panel. However, my husband the cook told them to replace it and they did without any debate. I wish I would have looked here first because I would have changed the entire model altogether after hearing similar complaints. New one installed today, we'll see.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Works Well and Great Looking!!
from Boston, MA
We have recently upgraded our kitchen and replaced all appliances. This range/oven not only looks great, it preforms great as well! Cleaning can be more difficult because one must remove one half of the grill. Other than that, it is great!
I love the looks of it and it's working well.

As I become more familiar and comfortable with this oven, it works better for me. I wish the instruction book were clearer as I could not find an explanation for the three or four glitches I have encountered. Otherwise, I am very satisfied with it and several visitors to our home have admired it and asked about its functions, where we bought it and if we were happy with it.
