        We replaced our old Kenmore with this range and it has worked perfectly. It has some great features for the price and suits our family of six just fine.

                    I enjoy being able to use only the amount of electricity I need to heat my pots, instead of using an oversized burner because my pot is just a little larger then another burner...

                                I bought this Whirlpool slide in stove 2 months ago and got a great deal on it. So far it has met and even in some cases exceeded my expectations. Black top needs a quick spray with glass cleaner daily even if I don't use it (but I live on a dirt road so dust is a constant battle). I make sure to clean it after every use so nothing burning on it yet. Just takes a few minutes to polish with the cleaner/polish for glass tops. Wish it had 4 lights for which burner is still hot, only has one dot-not that helpful. But no kids in the house so not a huge deal for us. Oven bakes very evenly. Drawer is a bit smaller than my old stove but not a deal breaker, at least it stays on the guides unlike my old one. Looks great. Stainless needs a quick wipe with stainless steel polish/cleaner every so often to keep it bright and shiny. Wish the knobs where less upward facing as they do get dirtier than I think they would if they were more in the front than where they are. Haven't used many of the features yet such as the self cleaning and some of the other settings. Overall happy with the purchase and with the deal I got on it!

                                      Stove works fine, but keeping a black flattop clean is a pain.

                                            I bought my oven about 2 months ago and I am extremely pleased with the ease of programming the oven and how evenly it cooks. I like where the control knobs are placed on the stove top out of the reach of my grandchildren. The stove fits perfectly with in the counter top of my bar and is a focal point in the kitchen. The stove top cooks evenly and is easy to clean. I also like the feature of the large burner becoming a smaller burner when I am using a smaller pan. It is also very helpful to have the red warning heat light right on the top when the stove top is hot. I have made cakes, quiche, and pies in the oven and very pleased with the cooking results. I would recommend this unit to anyone who loves baking and spending time cooking.

                                                  I bought my stove because the oven gave out on my previous stove. I love it because you don't have to clean under the eyes of old stoves. But I didn't get stove top cleaner with my purchase. I need to know what kind of cleaner do I need for the top anf also to clean around the dials on the front of the range.

                                                        I love my new stove. It is not only beautiful, it is easy to clean and use. Most of all I love the burners because you can put a big pan or a small pan on the burners. The burner can be dialed to fit your pan. The oven is also easy to access and program for your special baked dish.

                                                              The stove has simple controls that make it easy to use in our vacation rental. The burners heat up quicker than some older models we have had in the past.
