Comments about Maytag 29.875" Free Standing Electric Range - Black:
I love the oven capacity and the large window so I can check on the food without opening the oven door. I am still getting used to the ceramic cooktop as my last Maytag stove was a coil top. Clean up is a breeze, but when it did need extra scrubbing I tried the cooktop cleaner with no luck. Researched cleaning tips on the internet and found baking soda/water solution is the best. The instructions for the range could use some improvement. They are a little vague. I have only had this range for a few weeks but I hope it is as dependable as my last one that I had for about 20 years. Thank you Maytag!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The five burner surface is its best feature
The range of options is what sold me on this stove. With a convection oven, a warming center, a bridge burner, and a burner for melting, it offers good alternatives to the gas stove that I had intended to buy. An oversize oven window also makes checking on the contents pretty simple. The storage drawer is so shallow and flimsy that it's not very useful, but the oven size is more important. What I don't like is the cooking surface's composition; it is hard to clean and scratches very easily. I haven't had it long, but it is already showing wear. I'm concerned about the long term life span.
Slow to preheat

Bakes evenly, looks super, just slower than I'm used to, to preheat
Aqua Lift poor-- now oven doesn't work properly
from Orlando, FL, United States
After extensive research I picked the MER8880 stove- convection oven, 5 burners and a warmer. I was impressed by the USA built and designed. It is now 3 years old.Soon after my purchase we baked some fatty chicken that splattered all over the oven. I was anxious to try the Aqua Lift--what a disappointment. It didn't touch the baked on chicken splatter. Then I tried to use other non-abrasive cleaners-- didn't touch it either. I used oven cleaner -- don't- as warned it ruins the interior finish. Totally disappointing.Now the oven will not heat properly-and diagnostics indicate that it needs a new control board. The control board costs 300-400 dollars- half the price of a new stove.I have been a long time Maytag fan- this appliance does not live up to expectations!!I got over that oven finish issue.

I purchased this model in January 2014. I love the convection baking feature. December 2014 I used the Aqua Lift cleaning feature for the first time. I was amazed by how well it loosened the baked on residue. It was so easy I will do it more often now.
very good stove

Satisfied with this stove but took time to get used to the layout of cook top.
from Santee, South Carolina, United States
I bought my electric range and a matching microwave oven a few months ago and am totally satisfied with both. I love the different size eyes and a warming eye as well. There are two eyes that have two eyes in one: one regular size and one for extremely large pots.
Love this stove/oven!
from PA, United States
It looks great. The power preheat feature on the oven really does heat it up fast! My only complaint is the glass cooktop is hard to keep clean. Overall, every other feature is great!
