Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by LPPR Generous size, easy to clean
It took me a while to get used to cooking with gas again, but I have gotten used to the new cooking times (after 25 years on electric coils, ugh!
The range is easy to clean, with lots of room for pans on all burners, and I like the look in my new kitchen. I would not call it amazing but it is solid, well-built and I love the dual fuel option. I am still learning the various features and cannot wait for Thanksgiving and cooking a really large turkey in the generous oven, while keeping the sides warm in the warming drawer - never had that luxury before!

As a mechanical engineer I am familiar with valve design and what's required for a valve to produce a variable flow. I am not pleased with the performance of these burners. The ports in these valves are definitely of a design that does not allow continuously variable heat output from high to low fire. There are individual ports in the valve for high, medium and low. If someone is considering purchasing this range please be aware that you will not have a variable heat output from high to low.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0Â by Toby poorly made
I got this range because I like the design of the slanted control panel and the dual range at the price. What is so disappointing is the controls of the gas stove. Like Marc and others, I am very disappointed at how poorly the gas stove controls and burners work--something I could not test in the showroom. The control knobs are a cheap plastic, when you adjust them the flame does not smoothly increase and decrease as you adjust -- adjusting the controls from 9 pm to 7 pm does nothing to the flame height. If you are a cook, don't get this stove. I wish they had invested less in a "Chicken Nuggets" and more in quality stove controls and burners. A purchase mistake.

I shopped around for over a year until I decided on this range.It had all the features I wanted at the most reasonable price. So far, the performance had met all of my expectations and then some! I'm an experienced and avid cook. I've owned a much bigger and much more expensive dual fuel range than this one, which I loved, but this smaller less expensive range is just brilliant.
I had read in other reviews that there are only 3 flame settings.Not true. I think that those people had not yet figured out how to use their appliance. The knobs have only 3 settings marked on them, but if you push the handle down and turn slowly, you can have any flame height desired.
If I were to complain about anything, it would be that the cooling fan is a bit noisy once the oven has shut down.
I've used the self cleaning feature twice and it is amazingly effective. I'm so pleased with my purchase and would recommend this range to others.

I am so pleased I picked this range. Frankly, my husband does most of the cooking so he has more time spent with it there, and so far no complaints. I love the design of the cook top and how the grates seperate into 3 pieces and the stove top is very easy to wipe clean. I also like the panel / knobs design because it too is easy to wipe clean after cooking. Overall it feels very solid and has a nice sturdy feel. Yes the fan seems to go on for awhile after use of the oven and perhaps in a small home where the kitchen area is too near the living area, it might be a little loud for some. For us it has not been a concern.
