Summary: Five times in 5 years I have had to have repair visits on this inferior appliance. Wish I kept my old Caloric range. I did not buy this thru Amazon but I want to share my experience. First the Broiler when in use had a gas smell -- $150 for the Bosch Certified repair person to be UNABLE to properly adjust it. Next there was a gas leak... the Gas company came tried to resolve the issue told us to get an authorized repair person and shut off our gas.
Summary: Love the look but hate electric stoves, thus my reason for buying this duel fuel stove. Great cooking on the gas top, but the black/dark red glass requires cleaning...fairly often. Our oven door never seems to close all the way. Tech came out and said that is normal. Takes longer than usual to bake anything. Not happy with the oven at all. Definately feel heat out the sides of the door near the top. Bought all the Bosck appliances when we remodeled the kitchen.
Summary: We installed and neither the oven or burners worked. We have had two service calls in the last two weeks with service stating we have lemon. Have been on the phone with Bosch customer service for last two weeks asking for replacement and finally received approval. Next problem, they cannot tell me when I will receive the replacement so continue to fight on that. The seller was a joke in its response and zero support to have manufacturer respond to defective product.

Summary: The knobs suck. I adore my stove. I use the convection oven. I cook several times a day and enjoy this range to no end. I wish it had dual ovens....but the warming drawer comes in handy. A second oven.....would be the dream. That being said, the knobs haven't been fixed. It's not heat....it's not a type of cleaner....it is crappy knobs. I'm still looking for metal replacement knobs and if anyone out there has a model number for some that they've found..
Summary: Repost from model 7052 but also relates here: I'm sorry I ignored the other poor reviews and went ahead with my purchase. All features are working satisfactorily for me but I've experienced something no one else has mentioned so wish to warn you. We just performed our first self-clean function of the oven after a couple months of light use.
Summary: We have been cooking on our Bosch Range for four months now, replacing a Dacor duel fuel range. We love the stove, so far it has worked very well for us and is a joy to cook on. The large burner does a good job with stir fries and browning, and all of the burners have a very even low setting. The cast iron burner plates are heavy and distribute the flame's heat well. We use the oven in convection mode mostly and it works great.
Summary: I love the BTU power on the burners, the oven controls are a bit complicated at first but I want to point out to future buyers be sure to read what DUEL FUEL is all about. I bought this range because I had used at my friends house and liked it, I didn't want to spend hours looking for a range...I took the model number and ordered. I noticed "Duel Fuel" but guess I thought it meant the gas could be converted to propane. NOT...it means an electric oven!.
Summary: We replaced all the appliances in our kitchen with Bosch products. They all look good and are great products. For a slide in stove we looked at Viking, Wolf etc. but settled on the Bosch. I'm not a gourmet cook but do enjoy cooking. For my needs, spending the extra $1500 or so on the next notch up of stoves didn't seem like a good use of my money. We haven't been disappointed with our decision. The stove looks great and is easy to operate.
