        I am still learning to cook on it...getting use to the smooth top and the overall different features...so far I love the stove. Only thing is I want the smooth top to be clean all the time and it takes a lot more attention than I wanted to put into it.

        I hate this stove

              I had the original Gemini double oven range and I absolutely loved it. When the controller went I foolishly decided to upgrade to the new model. I can't being to tell you how sorry I am. First the cook top layout is a mess. The three back burners are useless. They are so small that I can't even bring a 2 quart pan with 4 potatoes to a boil. Having the 2 large elements in the front is another problem. One large in the front and one in the back makes much more sense. The lower oven takes forever to preheat and if I have to change the temperature while I'm cooking, it can take up to 1/2 hour to raise the temp 25 degrees. There is only one timer even though there are 2 ovens. If you like to cook don't waste your money. I'm sorry I did.

                    I have wanted a double oven since last Thanksgiving when nothing was done on time and the rest of the meal was just warm.

                          While the wife does the majority of the cooking, even I found this double oven range easy to operate. The large bottom convection oven is great and is just one of its great features! The cook top is also very easy to clean and makes it easy to keep the kitchen looking neat. The warming center is a nice touch when you need to keep your food warm. With a lot of good features and a user friendly design, this is a great way to cook!

                                Like the functionality of the oven but it has a serious design flaw. Dust, drips, dirt get between the glass panels of the door and are impossible to clean. Search the Internet - lots of people struggling with the same problem. Having to come up all kinds of ingenious ideas involving taking the oven door off and all kinds of body contortions. Come on! This is the 21st century and you can't design something that is easy to clean?! Epic fail - as my kids say!

                                      We bought this electric range approximately 3 weeks ago and are very happy with it. We love the 4 burners with a warmer and one burner with 3 options (sixes). It has a double oven.

                                                  The confection part of the oven is quite noisy. I'm disappointed for the amount of money I paid that it's not all stainless, it has black sides. The timer, clocks, and temperature settings are awful. The buttons are too hard to push and takes for ever to set the clock time.

                                                        We bought our oven 4 months ago. It heats very quickly on the top surface and evenly. We don't boil over like we use to in the old electric top. Ovens cook quickly and it takes a little learning curve to time things. Overall a great buy.

                                                              We bought this new from Home Depot in beginning of May and LOVE IT! Such many more features than our old Maytag and hop it will be just as reliable as our previous one. Stove top features our easy to understand and useful. Double oven is awesome and I really don't see a problem with the location of the lower oven like other people have said. The ONLY problem is the keypad, which is hard to press and select sometimes. But that is all; if your looking for a new oven/stovetop this is a great one, and Maytag is reliable!
