Looks Gorgeous and Very Functional

Comments about Kitchen-Aid 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.
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.
Holds Perfect Temperature (while baking)
from Lancaster, PA, USA
I've had my range for about two months and love it. The large gas burners boil water rapidly and the oven is large and holds the exact temperature perfectly. There is nothing wrong with this stove - it's all good. I'm looking forward to the Thanksgiving feast this year coming out of my KitchenAid range!

replaced a 30 year old hotpoint electric with this gas range. Why did I wait that long to upgrade. Love every thing about this appliance

Keeps turning off!!!
from Appleton, WI, USA
About once every couple of weeks I will be baking and the oven will turn off and give a letter on the screen. They have replaced the screen, the module and have put a magnet of the electrical wiring. Still giving a letter and turning off. Each time you need to pull out the stove and unplug it to reboot the module... Unacceptable. Works well when it does work.
