Excerpt: Was hesitant about buying this range after reading some negative reviews. So far, I am very happy with the quality and performance of this product. It is nice looking and good value for the price.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Clean, Heats Up Quickly, High-Powered Burners, Large Surface Area
Summary: Great looking range and it performs as well as it looks. It cooks food very evenly and quickly. This was a major upgrade from our previous unit and food tastes much better. Eggs are fluffy, chicken is soft and falling off the bone! It does exhaust some hot air out the front of the unit right near the upper handle. I have noticed that it creates a condensation around the handle and tends to drip on the floor. This would be annoying if you have hardwood flooring.
Conclusion: The space I had was limited and this worked very well as I needed to have the controls on the front. The burners heat up quickly and cook evenly. The fan in the oven is very quiet compared with my previous convection oven. I am a little concerned that I have bumped a burner on without knowing it. I thought it would be more difficult to do that.
Pros: Quality Construction, Easy To Clean, High-Powered Burners, Attractive Design, Large Surface Area, Heats Up Quickly
Summary: I like the way the cook top works, and baking is also great--but two things I am not thrilled with. The metal portion surrounding the handles scratches up very easily and I am not rough on it. I see some scratching on the cook top as well, and again, we are extremely gentle and caring with our appliances. In fact, the store from which I bought it replaced that panel after a few months because it had a wavy "warped" look to it.
