Expensive but Functions Well
from San Jose, CA
Comments about Whirlpool 30.75" Drop-In Electric Range - Black on Black:
Compared to other styles of ranges, this drop-in was very expensive.Things I liked about it are:The oven light does not come on, when the door is opened. This was a waste of energy in my old oven, when I left the door open after baking to let the oven cool down.The range elements heat quickly and cool down quickly.The oven heats evenly making it unnecessary to rotate food midway through cooking.The range controls are up front rather than on the back of the oven. On an oven with the controls at the back, my wife would be at risk of setting her clothing on fire reaching over the elements to operate the controls.What I do not like about it:While using the oven, the display shows the oven temperature rather than the clock. With my old oven, I got used to gauging times by glancing at the clock on the oven. This is a small issue. I can easily adjust to it.The range elements and the pans below them fit the range rather loosely. So they tend to slide a bit while in use. So far, this has not been a big issue.

What a Range!!!
By Cooking Uptown
from Ville Platte, LA
This range is such a pleasure to use. The reviews were pretty correct. I'm glad I purchased this one even though it stretched my budget some. The top is so smooth and easy(thus far) to clean. Wet towel gives wet streaks, BUT using a dry cloth makes the black shine to an eye-catching that is noticeable. Surprised how heavy the oven door is. Great!!! The various features are definitely an added plus. It is my hope it lasts as long as my (not close in comparison) older drop-in.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
The fact that it was a drop-in was most important.

This was a Christmas present after looking for a drop-in for over a year. It is good thing that you are still making them!!!

Not many drop in ranges available but this was a good choice. It fit better in the space than the drop in it replaced. Instructions are easy to read and accurate. Oven and broiler are great.

replace 24 year old range
we've only had this stove for about a week but we already love it. one huge improvement over my old stove is the closed surface under the coil burners. no more having to "raise the hood" to clean a boiled-over mess. it's so much easier to just wipe clean. I haven't used the self cleaning feature of the oven yet (and have never had a self cleaning oven before) but I am looking forward to an easier way to keep a clean oven from now on.

I have had this about a month now. I am very happy with it.

Bought about 6 months ago and am happy with everything about it except the black top is very hard to keep clean and the timer is not loud
from Allegan, Michigan
I have had the range a couple of weeks.This was the only 30" model black with coil elements I could find.. I needed this style to replace my old range. I do a lot of canning. The burners run extra hot, but the large burner is only 8 inch.The oven temperature is true at the second level. I found that I needed to give it a bit more time to preheat than at it's buzzer says. The timer rings only once where I would like it to continue until I respond. The range and I are still getting to know each other.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
This Range is an Excellent Product
from Corpus Christi, Texas
We purchased an electric range and it was delivered within a day. After modifing the cabinet, we installed it. Instructions are excellent. However, when we tried to use the oven, it would not heat. A call to Whirlpool was very productive and within a day we received a call from the local repair shop. A new computer board was installed and the range works great. We would consider Whrilpool again.
