Great Features and dual purpose--gas and electric
from San Antonio TX 78258
Comments about KitchenAid Kitchen-Aid 30" Slide-In Dual Fuel Range - Black with Stainless Steel:
We went from a glass top electric range to gas. We had to have the gas line installed and quite an expense, but we have not regrets. It is great to have the gas--it makes all the difference in the world. The electric over does make it easier when using the oven.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Cooking with Gas Baking with Reddy Kilowat - The best of two fuel options
By Little LaC

We have had this dual fuel range/oven for a couple of months and are delighted with its performance. We replaced a five-year old, all gas range/oven with this model and wish we had purchased this unit five years earlier. The range burners are well sized and we especially like the dual ported burner; it's great for simmering, small pots and for high heating of large pots. The wok stand feature is also a great plus and is used frequently. The electric oven maintains a constant temperature and the convection feature is excellent for decreasing baking time for meatloaves and large roasts. The range top cleans more easily than any range I have ever used...even easier than flat top electrics. The warmer drawer is great and is especially useful when the whole family comes to visit; when folks are ready for second helpings they are treated to food that is still warm, not stone cold. We even were able to enjoy a breakfast of bacon, eggs, and grits one morning when the power was down because of a fallen tree.
I have mixed feelings about this range. Overall, I am happy with the cooktop. Unlike other compaints, I think the heavy top grills while somewhat heavy for cleaning under, are strong and durable. Having the entire surface for placing pans is fantastic.The smaller burner is a simmer burner, simply put. There are 2 other size burners if you need more BTU's, that do great. My biggest complaint is the oven. Like others, the heating time is ridiculous. It took 25 min to heat up to 375. I have not had any success in baking. All of my baked goods are burning on the bottom. I have tried different cookie sheets, time and temperature. But what I hate the most is that the oven is noisy. During the entire time of baking the internal fan runs. After baking my Thanksgiving turkey for 3 hours, the fan noise got to be a bit much. Also, I would like to mention that I used the "bread proof" function. It was awesome. Living where it's cold, it is often hard to have it warm enough for yeast dough. It worked great.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Dual Fuel is the way to go!

I bought this great oven a few months ago and absolutely love it.
Very nice stove
By House Chef

The oven takes 20 minutes to pre heat to 400 degrees. I'm sure it's because the element is under the metal oven bottom. I'm still trying to get use to the left front double burner.
A great appliance

Bought for a summer cottage, three months of use this product is a good choice. Love the variety of burners and the warming drawer feature is terrific. Shelves in the oven have a little "give" to them if you are baking heavy items...a stronger material would give more confidence. We're happy!
from North Shore Minnesota
We absolutely love this range. Three oven racks help to speed up cookie baking and the cast iron grates provide a nice area for hot items.
