        Comments about KitchenAid 30" Free Standing Gas Range - Stainless Steel:

        I don't cook often but almost every time I do I and met with a fault detected message on my upper oven. Manufacturer says this is only when there has been a power outage and just flip the circuit breaker and wait a minute then turn power back on. This is not a reliable fix, and I often find myself running up and down the stairs turning the power off while trying to get dinner on the table. Huge pain. Sometimes you think it is reset and then walk away only to come back to a cold oven and the message all over again.

        Not At All Impressed - Features Flashy But Designed Poorly

        By Jackie689

        from Western New York

        Comments about KitchenAid 30" Free Standing Gas Range - Stainless Steel:

        Have had this oven for about 4 months now, and have had to calibrate the temperature for both upper and lower several times. I have found that the large burner is unable to boil any faster than the others at all. Though the middle griddle burner appealed to my gullible husband, we have yet to use it without food burning in spots, and it seriously restricts which cookware I can use simultaneously. Also, the cooking area is restricted due to the angle of the rear control panel and the front knob area being angled up toward the burners, which further inhibits free use of cookware. (On my old stove, sans 5th burner, with straight controls, etc., I was able to use 3 LARGE stockpots at once. Not so with this one!) I have the black version, which looks beautiful, but is somehow very hard to clean thoroughly. (Through trial & error I found soapy water best. I put teflon covers under the burners for everyday, so as to make it easier to clean and so the top will last longest.) The racks are not designed well, with no backs. The upper oven broiler is next to USELESS - it takes an eon to light, goes off by itself (Door closed), restricts what you can put in that oven (height-wise), and requires putting some bakeware off-center, which affects cooking. I have yet to have a power outage, but I live in a rural ski area, with LOTS of snow, and do experience them periodically, and have come to find that it will not be useable under those conditions. Overall, I have very little good to say, and cannot recommend this oven, Brand, or design. This is the third KitchenAid appliance I have had, (the others were a dishwasher and fridge, now replaced) and though I was  impressed with the first of the two, the fridge was not great, and this stove is so over- priced and poorly designed, I will likely NEVER consider ANY again.

        I always seek the KitchenAid product because of the quality.

        It's really difficult to choose our latest purchase, the 5-Burne Gas Freestanding Double Oven Range. The gas stove makes cooking easy and has so many features to make delicious meals. We also recently purchased an amazing out-door grill. We have many other KitchenAid products, major and small, decorating our counter-tops.

        I bought a month or so ago and have not used it very yet. Thanksgiving will be the real test.

        This gas range is the best thing I could have purchased for our family. It makes cooking and creating meals a pleasure again. When it arrived, I took a photo of it and posted it to Facebook. My friends loved it. We thank you for designing such an efficient and affordable range!

        So easy to use AND clean!

        Comments about KitchenAid 30" Free Standing Gas Range - Stainless Steel:

        My idea was to have the convenience of a double oven. I was concerned that the range top would be awkward and hard to keep clean. I am amazed at how easy it is to clean the stove top and I love the ovens so far. Very easy to calibrate and set the temp and timer. Designersseem to have thought of lots of effective performance possibilities. So far, excellent!!

        I have worked with many different stoves/ovens. This kitchen aid is by far my favorite. The features are fantastic and effective in every way. As a professional chef at home, I am thoroughly content with this wonderful and efficient product.

        Caution: if you are likely to experience extended power outages

        By Rormac

        Comments about KitchenAid 30" Free Standing Gas Range - Stainless Steel:

        We bought this almost a year ago and in terms of its primary functions, it is pretty good. The ovens are accurate, the burners give good control and once you get used to the controls, they are fairly intuitive. There is only one thing I wish worked differently and would have liked to have known before we bought. Unlike the Whirlpool this replaced and most other gas Kitchenaids, this will not work in a power outage. Having lost power for several days during Irene, "Snowtober" and Super Storm Sandy (these will all mean something if you live in the northeast) for shorter periods during winter storms, I would not bought this if they mentioned this "feature" more prominently. If this could be a problem for you, do not buy. If not, or if you have a back up generator ( on my list of things to put in), go for it.

        5 burners, two ovens, a top grill. The wonders of this appliance never cease to amaze me. Convection oven to boot. Very easy to use. The top burner grids are large, so very easy to lift and clean under. I bought it in white, with the black accents it is very lovely.
