Summary: First I want say I tried to leave a Review on the Kitchen Aid website for several days, and while there is a link to do so, it redirects you in a loop where you can actually never write a Review. So beware of the Reviews written there, if you catch my drift. Here are a few things to be aware of if you are buying this range. First, the oven has an AWFUL chemical smell when you first turn it on.
Summary: This is a well-made range with the best use of each fuel type. The triple burner on the front left works very well at either low or high heat. The two smaller burners take slightly longer to heat a pot, but since we use non-stick, coated cookware which is not supposed to be subjected to high heat, they work quite well. The porcelain coated range top is easy to clean, especially if you don't wait a week to wipe up a spill.
Kitchenaid 30" Slide-in Dual Fuel Range KDSS907XSP

Summary: We are very happy with this range. It looks great and, so far, has worked fine. The control panel is sleek and easy to use. Once our 110 LB. Yellow Lab discovered he could cause the control panel to beep by touching it with his nose, we quickly learned that there was a simple way to lock the panel. No more beeping!
Summary: This range was in our home when we purchased it. Beware...less than 3 years old and it has started on fire three times in six months. I believe it is a bad design for an oven. Grease drops down from food onto the steel bottom where the enclosed element is and....voila....FIRE!!! The bottom is now a charred mess, and the safety department at kitchenaid didn't seem to be too concerned. Don't buy this overpriced boat anchor.
Summary: We purchased this range three months ago. The three major requirements when searching for the range were, 1) at least one large burner for large fry pans or roasting pans, 2) an easy-to-clean cook top, and 3) a large oven. We found all three with this range. However! We did not realize that the pans would sit so high off the burners that enough heat would escape to slow the cooking process and set off the high temperature fan on the microwave every time we cook.
Summary: I have had this range for a little over two years and I am an avid cook. In fact I am a brand ambassador for an online cooking site and I test, rate and review recipes constantly. After reading the previous reviews, I am hesitant to give a good review. I knocked wood, so here I go. First of all, I will agree with some of the complaints. The right front and left rear burners are not powerful, but I do find them handy for slow simmers.
