great product for the price w/ single design flaw.
from wilmington, nc
Comments about Maytag 29.875" Free Standing Electric Range - Black with Stainless Steel:
have had no trouble so far after about 6 months. rapid boiling, good heat control. controls a bit hard to figure at first, but now no issues. any liquid spilling in the control area and you have to go back and re-set your selections. biggest problem is that there is a vent space between the 2 door glass panels. this vent is at the top of the door facing forward, and I have gotten liquid running down between the glass, where it is impossible to clean. really annoying. Even cleaning the vent w/ a rag too wet will send liquid into no-mans'-land. otherwise great range and nothing else really in the market at this price point.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great Product, I could not be more pleased.
from The Villages Florida
Very simply put, I love it. My wife has never liked gas so 54 years of marriage I put up with the electric range I did not like. When I discovered induction I talked her into it seeing as how I use it more than she does anyway. It's response is the next thing to the instantaneous of gas. I have not burned anything yet and believe Maytag to be a product I can trust. We bought a Maytag stack-able washer dryer 5 years ago. My wife washes for the most part daily and she has not yet been able to wear it out.
The induction cooktop is one of many great features
from Portland, OR
I was considering switching to gas range, but the salesman showed me how quickly the induction range gets hot and boils water then immediately cools down, which makes it easier to keep clean than other smooth cook tops. It saved the expense of piping the gas line to the kitchen. The convection oven is larger because there is no fan that sticks out from the back. It bakes evenly and adjusts the temperature. I was also surprised at how much I have been using the warming drawer feature. I have not tested the low temp/water oven selfclean system yet but I love the concept.
from Kennewick, WA
So far, and it has only been a few weeks, I absolutely love the Range. The baking is great, but best of all is the induction top. It boils water so fast. It took forever for our last stove to do that. Longevity is really important to me and I have only had this for a few weeks so we shall see.
I love this stove and I am a guy.
from Spokane, WA
Never had induction before it's the best. Have not even come close to burning anything. The clean no knob looks on this stove is just the best. I never thought I would love a stove but I do. It's the best I love cooking on it.
I had a GE induction cooktop many years ago and loved it so I was very happy to see prices come down on induction ranges. When it came time to replace my ancient stove, I chose the Maytag as I thought it offered a good balance of features and price. I recommend it but with some reservations. First of all, the generic manual that came with it (it seems there's only one for all Maytag electric stoves) gave incorrect information on how to change the oven temperature but I figured it out. More problematic is the fact that the controls aren't very responsive when my fingers are wet. I don't know about everyone else, but my fingers are often wet when I'm cooking and it's frustrating if I can't quickly turn off the stove when something's about to boil over. There's also one thing that's designed badly. The stove top has to be turned on and then you have to select which burner to adjust before you can select the temperature. Each time you go to change the temperature, you have to first choose the burner, unless you're cooking on only one element. In that case, you don't have to readjust. The cooktop I had before had a separate control for each burner so the extra step of choosing the burner before adjusting a burner wasn't necessary. This extra step is annoying. That said, I'm really enjoying induction cooking again, including the incredibly fast time it takes to boil a big pot of water. It's also the safest choice as the burners get uncomfortably warm but won't burn your hand and automatically turn off if there's no pot on a burner or if one boils dry. Since it doesn't get very hot (the stove heats the pot which cooks the food, rather than cooking it directly), food is relatively easy to clean off the cooktop when it cools. I haven't had to clean the oven yet so I can't comment on that. As far as I'm concerned, induction offers the best of electric (easy clean up of the smooth cooktop) and gas cooking (instant temperature control). This stove is a good choice if you want to take advantage of induction technology without paying an arm and a leg but with a little more thought it could have been great.
This stove has exceeded my expectations
from Cedar Falls, IA
I did quite a bit of research on induction stoves before I purchased this model. The stove has exceeded all of my expectations. Consistency of heat application and ease of cleanup is at the top of my list. I also appreciate the extra large window for viewing items as they bake. I haven't tried the oven cleaning feature as yet, but fully expect it to also be a 5-star performance. The only reason I gave features a "good" is because I have had trouble setting the timer without turning off the oven temp. Once I get accustomed to the button sequence, I'm sure it will be fine.
Impressive cook top
from Ft. Pierce
I grew up with gas, but our current house does not allow us that option. I could not stand the electric cook top that came with it. After a considerable amount of research, I decided induction was the way to go. Fate forced my hand when our oven shorted out. The Maytag was the best deal in stock locally. Turns out that it was an excellent choice. It boils water like nobody's business and the temperature control is instantaneous. The convection oven is also the most even oven we have ever baked with.
Love the induction cooktop!
Would highly recommend this stove. Love the induction...it is amazing to have water boil so quickly...in about 90 seconds. Plus, because the burners don't stay hot when stainless steel pan removed, nothing gets "burnt" nor "stuck" to the glass top, so is super easy to clean the cooktop. I've been using spray cleaner or water and a microfiber towel. No need for "blades" or special cooktop cleaner regularly like required on our previous glass cooktop! Also, cooktop controls are at the front of the cooktop, so never have to reach over hot food to adjust the burners. Inside, there are three oven racks and is spacious with narrow warming drawer underneath. We even cooked two 12 lb. turkeys side by side at Thanksgiving! Furthermore, the stainless steel/black color combo looks great with our granite countertops and stone/glass backsplash. Definitely a smart purchase!
Love This Induction/Convection Range
Boils water very rapidly, bakes even and love the overall Range. I don't have a negative thing to say about it. LOVE
