        I love the double oven and all the different settings on the stove top. Everything seems to cook so quickly! Very happy with the purchase.

            The double oven is wonderful! The stovetop options are many and take a little getting used to. I'd like more options for rack height and another rack, one for the top oven and three for the bottom oven. The control knobs are not easy to read and I've left a burner on by accident more than once. I'd like to see a bigger light on the control panel indicating that the surface is hot or a burner is on. And having to hold the timer button down as it runs through the numbers is definitely not convenient if I'm timing something for a couple of hours. Beyond that, this is a very good stove packed with lots of utility and options. I think it will be a real workhorse for me.

              The oven cleans up well. The racks can be removed easy. The best feature is the quick preheat. However, the reason for purchase is the "made in America" .

                  I did a lot of research before purchasing this Maytag range. I found that for the price it had excellent features. Since using it I am very pleased with the performance and quality. I absolutely love the double oven with convection!!! The burner with the speed heat feature has been a plus as well. I would highly recommend this range.

                      I have only had my range for a little over a month. I have not used it much. It does not seem to heat up and become as hot as my old one. It takes longer to cook food than indicated in the preparation instructions.

                          I love the triple burner, and the upper oven saves time and electricity, it heats fast and is ready to go. We use that most.

                              Bought a house & all new appliances for the first time in my life (except a dishwasher). All were Maytag except for fridge which i learned later was a bad decision. I'm SO glad I chose Maytag! The convection oven is awesome & makes a turkey my family raves about. At first My mother chastised me for NOT basting my turkey but was later the first to say how perfect and juicy the white meat was. I have never been a fan of electric but that's what the new house was equipped with so I've gotten used to it. The cooktop is a lot easier to clean and the 'speed heat' function and rapid preheat oven is the bomb! Everyone is jealous that I have a double oven & loves the sleek stainless look. I highly recommend this stove and the matching built in microwave! And don't even get me started about my awesome Maytag Maxima washer & dryer with pedestals in Gun Metal Gray!!! I'm so pleased that I consulted Consumer Reports and went with Maytag. Ive had them 3 years now and no problems. I couldn't be happier with my purchase & hope they last 20+ years like the used ones I've had in the past!

                                This is my 3rd Maytag Gemini starting with one in 2003. I love the convenience of two ovens, especially one small one that heats up quickly and doesn't use as much energy. And I like that the current Gemini automatically includes convection. But I wish Maytag had kept the 3rd lower oven shelf with the roll out and I wish they had kept the same top burner configuration and the top oven toasting feature. I'm not very fond of the new Kitchen Timer function which is much more time consuming to use and don't like that you can't turn on just one oven light at a time but must turn on both. All in all, I'm sorry Maytag skimped on some of the better features on previous Gemini models.

                                    We couldn't be happier with the purchase of this range. It was a major upgrade from our previous range and it was simple to figure out how to use! We do a lot of baking and love the fact that you can make 6 doz cupcakes at a time! The true convection makes sure everything is evenly cooked in all levels of the oven. We highly recommend this range!!!
