        I have owned this stove for just 3 years. LOVE the look and up until last week was happy with the way it cooked. Went to cook dinner one night hit bake button and nothing. The burners work, but nothing else. I paid 3x as much money for this "flat top" stove for the oven to stop working after just 3 years and I mean JUST 3 years (hit 3 year 9 weeks ago). Having trouble finding someone reasonable to come out and look at this; the few I have spoken to are telling me could be costly to fix....GREAT! Very disappointed in Whirlpool.

              I TOO PURCHASED THIS STOVE A LITTLE OVER
              A MONTH AGO. THIS STOVE IS FAR ABOVE MY PREVIOUS STOVE. THE QUICK RESPONSE OF BURNERS/OVEN WHEN TURNED ON IS AMAZING
              WHEN I COMPARE WITH MY PREVIOUS STOVE.THI STOVE HAS EXCEEDed ANY EXPECTIONS I HAD UPON PURCHASING.I HAVE ALWAYS TRUSTED WHIRLPOOL AND WILL CONTINUE TO MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO PURCHASE WHIRLPOOL APPLIANCES IN THE FUTURE.

                          We bought this oven for a remodel at our sons house and we love it. It makes the kitchen look so modern and fresh. Glass top is easy to keep up and cooks perfectly. Couldn't ask for a nicer oven. Love it.

                                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.
