Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GailSR Control board failed after 2 1/2 years
I know this product has been discontinued, but I am really unhappy with it. I purchased the oven in November of 2013. It worked very well until it simply quit on me, and the price to repair this oven is $450. That is half the cost of the oven when it was new. The control board has failed, and the oven will not turn on any longer. And Whirlpool will not help me, except to mail me a new part that will cost about $340 including shipping - but not installed!!!

So far so good. Its been great. I'm not a fan of these one month evaluations. Ask me in a year for a truly accurate evaluation.My last oven from Home Depot died at 13 months so I took the extended warranty this time. Based on my experience all these ovens, any brand, seem to have problems with the electronic control board. Its just a matter of when it will break. They are expensive to replace. They should offer a lifetime guarantee on the control unit. at a reasonable price.

Takes to long to preheat. Appearance of vent near top of door opening is ugly and not noticeable in display picture on web site. Lastly, too noisy; blower throws heat into kitchen and runs long after oven is turned off. Wonder how much extra that costs to electric bill.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by crankyoldlady This product is a perfect replacement for my old oven.
The controls are clear and easy to use. The fan to keep the cabinet cooled takes some getting used to but I believe it is a good safety feature. I don't want my cabinet wood to dry out. The baking is great.

The top control portion of this oven is entirely plastic, a fact the manufacturer takes pain to hide. I can only hope the day never comes when I bring something close to scratch it. The broiler will not stay on continuously, since it cycles on and off with temperature. It calls itself custom broil as if this was an asset. Why they didn't provide a control to keep it on non-stop is beyond me. The window is too small to look in and see what you are broiling, and if you open the oven door the broiler immediately goes off. Good luck trying to broil something as simple as shish kebobs. The accu-bake temperature control is nothing but their own version of hot air. My oven measures 25 degrees too hot for all temperature above 300 deg, yet right on the money for all those below. What that means is I will burn everything at any useful temperature. The user selectable temperature correction has only a single correction for all temperatures with insufficient range and only goes to 20 degrees. In short my oven is going to be either too hot if I don't correct it or too cold at some temperatures if I do. The correction simply won't work for every temperature. The biggest surprise is the pre-heating timer. It is very long like other users complain. 12 and 1/2 minutes to get to 350 degrees, or at least that is what the preheat timer, claims is supposed to be the case. Only it isn't.. I got suspicious and measured it and found the oven is far from preheated when it claims to be. In actuality it takes mine 30 minutes to preheat. I verified it by measurement. Their claim is baloney. There is no adjustment on the preheating timer, so you begin with a cold oven, if you believe the timer, and eventually burn your food if you don't correct your oven reading. The oven is so small I can't fit in my usual Thanksgiving meal. The crowning achievement of this oven, is its fan. It is so noisy, it is unpleasant to listen to. And why it was necessary at all, I can only begin to guess. Please take note that the fan stays on for about ten minutes when your cooking is all done. I have no reason to crawl inside the oven or to hasten it to cool down. I can only guess that the lack of insulation the manufacturer placed in this, becomes their own reason to want to make noise and run the fan after your meal is cooked. This oven is a lemon.

unit was fine delivery was fine contracted installation thru Home Depot was the pits. The installation debacle was so bad it soured the whole purchase experience from Home Depot. I have made purchases since from Lowe's .

This oven is bad news all the way around. It has very little SS on it and a whole lot of black plastic.
The worst part is the internal dimensions! It's not even wide enough for a standard cookie tray! Oh, and it also comes with some very flimsy racks.....its just not a good oven

I bought this oven to replace an old one, so was limited as to size. I have to be careful about the size of the cookie sheets I use, but I knew that already. This one does seem to be more roomy than my old one. I like the way it looks and controls are fine. It does not show the exact temperature in the oven, only what it is set at, so if I turn the oven down, I don't know when it reaches that temp. The only real drawback is the fan. When I turn the oven on I hear a fan as it warms up. It continues to run during baking and even when I turn it off the fan runs for about 10-15 minutes. I supposed I'll get used to it, but its a bit annoying right now.
