        Overall this double oven electric range is a great product. I love the idea of having two ovens to cook various foods at the same time. The convection settings are excellent. The only problems I found was that keeping the stainless steel and glass top clean takes work. I wish Maytag would have used a used a coating that would have minimized the smudges and fingerprints on the stainless steel. A good stainless steel cleaner like Thor is a necessity. Also, be very careful with the glass top. Glass can easily be scratched. Make sure you never use an abrasive cleanser or pad on the glass top. My glass top and handle came with scratches and had to be replaced. Now the range is as good as new and I am very pleased with it.

            Overall, this is on awesome appliance. We haven't had it very long, so I can't speak to how well it holds up, but it works very well for now. We love the double oven. We got rid of our toaster-oven and use the top oven for most of our cooking. Both ovens heat evenly and true to temperature as far as we can tell. The cook top took some getting used to, but works well with all of our pots and pans. The convection oven is maybe not as powerful as more expensive/professional type ones, but it is wonderful enough for me! If you buy this stove you will no doubt think for yourself ahead of time that the bottom oven is Very Low. You will be right. If I could redesign this stove, I would try to make the control panel on atop a wee bit smaller and put another two inches under the bottom door. It literally lays on the ground. I would also use more knobs and fewer electronic buttons. The button pushing sequences are not very intuitive--especially the timer. Also the amber clock is impossible for me to read unless I am right by the stove. Last design gripe: the burner on/stove top hot lights are tiny, and hard to remember which is which. For all the really important things though--like even cooking-- this unit is super. We love being able to bake different things at different temperatures simultaneously. I also love the enclosed lower oven elements; they make quick wipe ups of overflows so much more likely to happen!

            This range has really poor buttons

                The button that you have to press to set the oven temp and set the clock is horrible! You have to press it so hard it hurts my fingers every time. The timer also does not shut off by itself which I hate! I am also constantly burning things in the upper oven or undercooking. The range top burners are also awkward to use and the warmer unit barely heats up.
