Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EleEng Five Months Later
This gas range continues to be outstanding after five months of use. To date we have only used the smaller top oven which works well for the two of us and probably is saving us money on our natural gas bill. The range is well insulated with very little heat loss into the kitchen area, so we will be able to use it in the summer months. The sealed burners and oven are easy to clean. This range is expensive but worth every penny. As mentioned in my previous note our only issue is thefact it does not sit flush with the back wall and thus extends severa inches past the edge of the countertop, but we are getting use to it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dschreibel It's a joy to cook again
My new range has helped to turn what had become just a chore into something that ignites my imagination and renewed my passion for cooking. The variation of the burners allows you to cook at different rates as does the double oven. I've even found inventive ways to use the middle long burner. It's a perfect fit for making gravy in long roasting pans and for poachers. The large burner is perfect for large saute pans--turn it up and brown your chicken, turn it down to slow cook it, or turn on the top oven and finish it there while a cake is baking in the botton oven. So easy to clean, so much fun to use, and a beautiful looking appliance as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EleEng Our MGT8885XS Part 2
I forgot to include in my previous note that since the majority of the range's systems are electronically controlled, in contrast to our old Tappan, and having worked 40 years in electronics I decided it was best to invest in Home Depot's extended four year warranty. I know it has a ten year limited warranty on burners and grates, but only one year on the electronics which basically control the range. The Home Depot extended warranty, in my opinion, is the best deal in our local area when compared to other appliance vendors.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Chilfox I expected a better stove
With todays technology I truly expected a better stove. The broiler oven is ok. My 20 year old gas stove was far superior in use of the broiler oven. Also the broiler does not broil eveningly over what you may be broiling and I have to rotate the item several times in order to broil the item correctly. The convection oven is good. The digital display is a pain in order to reset the clock on the stove and making simple digital temperature settings . The stove itself is bulit solid. Keeping the stove exterior clean is a real piece of work...if someone out there has an easy way of keeping the outside of this stove clean please help!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RentonSteve Awesome range...but
This range cooks food beautifully. I am especially happy with the convection roast feature. I have never had meat or vegetables come out as beautifully in my life. Plus being able to cook different items at different temps in the dual ovens makes a huge difference. There is one very significant design flaw. The upper oven vent is directly beneath the control panel. When the upper oven is in use, the air coming from the vent is extremely hot and makes using the controls almost unbearable. When setting the timer, I am only able to keep my hand over the vent for a few seconds at a time. This flaw is unfortunate since I would have given a resounding perfect 10 for this range.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by IrishIz After 1 year of minimal use it looks terrible...
I was so happy when we purchased this oven/range because of the double oven and the center burner. I now regret this purchase. This was NOT a cheap appliance but you can't tell buy looking at it now. I have had this since April 2011 and barely used it to be quite honest. There are drips inside the doors that I can't get clean. The finish on the top of the range is a mess. The finish is just gone from areas where water spilled. This is insane that finish didn't hold up when I barely cook. I hate that I'm now stuck with this horrible appliance that I can't afford to replace with something that not only works nice but looks nice.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kevycooks This product has very poor product performance.
I like cooking with gas, but this oven has not worked right since it was installed. The certified repairman has adjusted the temp. for the double ovens 3 times, and the gas ovens still do not hold the temperature. It cooks 100 degrees below what the digital reading says. I have a seperate thermometer in oven to check the temp. Christmas dinner was a disaster! Seems like the temp probe will not read what temp the oven is to kick in again to heat up the ovens. I regret buying this product. I bought white, and the cooktop is horrible to keep clean, even if you do not spill anything on it. The ovens also do not heat up fast, slower than my old electric single oven.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hiflutin This is the stove I waited for my whole life!
I am retired and wanted a new stove that met my needs. Very often there is just the two of us, but, my daughter,son-law and three grandchildren live next door! Having two ovens is a dream! I have rediscovered cooking! I find I use the small oven most of the time. It is large enough to cook most meals. This may seem like a small issue to some ! I have had several stainless appliances, however, my Gemini is the easiest finish to keep clean I have ever had... I have only had my stove 3 months. I am still experimenting with all it's convenient features. So far it exceeds my expectations. Linda PS...my son-law bought one!!
