Bought this range about 2 months ago and love it. Not only beautiful to look at but functions superbly. The cooktop has several burners with multiple heat control. So easy to find the perfect setting for all your cooking. Cleans easily and looks beautiful. The oven cooks evenly with no hot/cold spots. Controls are in the front making your cooking/baking a breeze to operate.
I've had this range for just over a year. I love the way it looks and the non-marking stainless finish. Unfortunately that's about it. The oven takes forever to heat up. The burners are not responsive to temperature changes... I've burned things and also thought things were cooking when they were not. Though this is my first electric range and so maybe this is a challenge with all of them. The bell/beep on the timer is too quiet. More disturbing: the enamel coating inside the oven has chipped in three places where the racks slide in. And the heat markers on the knobs on the front are STICKERS that have gotten wrinkled on two knobs (so far--it's the ones we use the most) and I'm sure will eventually peel off or crack etc. This is a fairly expensive oven that, after a short time, feels cheap. I would not recommend!

When roasting I have to duct tape silicon oven mitts to my nice backsplash. If I don’t it burns my marble back splash. I had to replace a section already. This is what I have to do in order to roast a turkey or beef.

Bought this in back stainless along with a complete kitchen package and am not disappointed! The extra racks inside were perfect when preparing Thanksgiving dinner. The adjustable element size on the most frequently used burner is awesome. My previous whirlpool unit had been top of the line 20+ years ago so I new when purchasing this line it would be un my kitchen a long time. After 4 months I don't have any complaints. I have not had to use the self cleaning mode yet. Not sure what I would use the under oven drawer for . Absolutely no regrets with the little extra money spent on this designer look.
