Summary: We loved the way it cooked, oven was fine, seemed heavy duty, BUT: Burner knobs stick in on position, won't shut off. Happens many once every 50-100 times, very unsafe. Repair failed, better when we don't use springs and silver plate by knobs, but still happens. Both ignighter and gas valve failed!
Excerpt: We cook a lot and have so far enjoyed the variable heat output of the stovetop, from a very low flame to possibly the biggest I've seen on a stove in this price range (great for searing). The oven heats up quickly too and the ciabatta I make has turned out great.
Pros: broad variance of heating modes, good cooking and baking results
Buyer Beware ... They want to charge you for their mistakes

Summary: Moral of the story: Do NOT buy products from a company that is not willing to do the right thing. Bosch/Thermador service stinks I bought a gas unit about 2 years ago and did not realize was defective because all the burners worked, but it did never put out the full output due to a faulty regulator.
Summary: I have had this for a year now and adore it! I use the convection for almost all oven cooking and save a lot of time and energy. It browns beautifully and the front right burner heats up water very fast. I am very glad I got it.
Summary: We bought 3 appliances from Bosch-Range, Fridge/Freezer and dishwasher. We have had major issues with all 3 and replaced the range twice before getting rid of it for a GE brand. Now, our freezer is shot and the worst part about was the awful customer service.
Great, but one deal-breaker for me, and one inconvenience

Summary: This unit is very good looking and seems durable and solid so far. It has a power burner that is enormous -- it makes no sense unless you have a huge pot or pan (at least 12" if not more across), as otherwise the flames will shoot around the sides of your pan.
Summary: First of all make sure reviews you read are specific to the model featured here. This is not a slide-in model with the oven controls in the front...so the venting issue mentioned is non-existent.
Summary: Expensive and not worth a cent. The knobs are plastic and the springs on the door are not strong enough to keep the oven door closed. Therefore, the door does not completely close, the light stays on and the plastic is completely burned off of the burner, since so much heat is escaping from the oven...
Summary: I have had this stove for about a month now and I am very pleased with it. It's very good looking, easy to use, and was a great price! I love the convection mode for the oven - if I want to speed things up a little... Overall I think this is one of the best buys out there in the appliance world.
