Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by HDNorm Having the old oven die just as Thanksgiving dinner was just about to be served, a new one would be needed soon!
This Frigidaire is very similar to the one it replaced, but with the addition of the grill burner, which is great. But this one has much more responsive burners; they light almost instantly and seem to heat things much more quickly. And having to get used to a more accurate oven temperature, is just fine with me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by GrannyKaren This range is very much worth the money.
this range had more of what we wanted and was much cheaper than ranges of the same quality. A total dream to cook on. We had HD do the installation and carry off the old range and are very pleased with the service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by redtekhiker Perfectly usable Range!
This stove/range has had mixed reviews from other customers on this and other sites. I am writing in to say that this is the BEST range that I have ever owned and cooked on. The stovetop burners get really hot when they need to, but the "low" setting also is works as it is supposed to = on low. The mid-range settings on the dial work as needed - which is a lot more than I could say for two old Kenmores. The oven is so accurate that it took me a month to stop compensating for my old Kenmore, and just cook things as the directions indicate, and quit worrying about it! I love the middle burner, although I haven't needed to use it too often, it seems just right in heat output.
Some users have complained that it "is hard to clean" and my answer is, 'try cleaning a kenmore - I had permanent stains on that thing from all my cooking, plus nicks in the enamel that never could be fixed. Its been seven months on this new Frigidaire and I have not managed to scratch it once, Yes, the burners are not removable, so there is an area right next to them that is harder to clean, but it is not impossible, and not even that difficult, relatively. Plus, I absolutely love the heavy cast iron grates that lift out and provide access to the enamel top. So efficient. The cast iron repels almost everything spilled on it, so they stay looking nice. Yes, they are heavy, and they conduct heat readily -that is an advantage, people - its better for COOKING. If you really cannot lift ten pounds, then pick a microwave oven! This stove was made for cooking, daily cooking, four pots at a time, and something in the oven- type of cooking, and it performs beautifully!
That said, there are a few nit-picky details that I would change: first the electronic oven control/clock is really low end. It works, but it is a bit quirky, and its just not as nice as the Kenmore range. But it does work!
Second, the metal racks inside the oven are fairly thin and cheap, they tend to ping when heated. Still, they function to hold the food flat inside the oven. Third, I miss my storage drawer - it is the broiler tray all the way down at the bottom. I am glad I don't broil much... it would be a pain to bend down there to broil steaks and have to lean way over to flip them and such. Fourth: no self-cleaning oven, so I have to do it the old fashioned way.
In summary: Frigidaire seemed to concentrate its quality in the areas that I use most, and I really appreciate it. They did cut a few corners, but that is not unexpected in a fairly inexpensive stove. If you just want a pretty decorative thing in your kitchen to place a shiny pot on, pick some other brand. If you cook, this stove is for you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by Mike works good
Changed it over to propane pretty easy...missed one step
on changing over oven...went back in book and found out how to fix...took one minute...(instructions could of been a little bit more simple and only cover one particular unit)..other wise works good...like the different size burners and iron grid all across the top. Good piece for the money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by Kenny Very nice stove
The stove is very nice and the fifth burner is great. The oven takes a little long to warm up but cooks great. The top of the stove is 3 sections that are very sturdy and heavy duty. Switching the burners from gas to propane looks very overwhelming in the instructions but is very simple and only takes about 15 minutes.
