Summary: My wife just loves this range. Yes, it is black and catches smudges easily. She knew that when we bought it. She had a black range before, so knew what to expect. She has been cooking up a storm because of the ease in which to use this product. She just loves this LG product so much , we just had to replace our microwave, and she insisted on getting an Lg. And yes, she just loves that too. I benefit with all the cooking she does. Both conventional and convection cooking.
Summary: Found that I must buy cooktop cleaner to keep top of range looking nice. Just wiping it does not take marks off. Oven seems to take longer to bake than my old one. Possibly it may need adjusted. Very nice looking range. I just have to get used to it.
Pros: Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
Summary: bought this range 11/2009 and have had 4 service calls in 18 months. The last 3 were for the same problem. Using the oven and just stopped heating. Always the same part, some relay module. Takes 2 or 3 days for a tech to look at the range, and another week or two to order and replace the part. Unfortunately LG has not come up with a better module so I expect to continue to have issues with this range.
Summary: We purchased this range about 19 months ago. After reading online reviews about LG service and parts, we decided to purchase an extended warranty from Best Buy. After using the self-cleaning feature on the oven, we got an F-7 error notice when we tried to preheat the regular bake oven the next day. The convection oven worked fine. It took several weeks to get the needed parts, as they were backordered.
"LG Convection oven, about 1,000 bucks worst range ever."

Pros: I have to have at least 10 words here to post this ad, so this is the pros of this range. bye bye.
Cons: LG doesn't stand behind its name on this product. 1 yr after I bought this nightmare range. Motherboard shot F-1. Called them, too bad so sad. Called a repairman, over 200 bucks for a motherboard, one month later shot F-1. Called repairman, must be the o
Summary: I would not buy this stove again. It is difficult to clean and I Ithought that the brand of cleaner I was using was to blame but I have tried 2 other brands with similar results. The first time I used the oven with convection, it looked as if the meal had exploded in there. Cleaning the oven was a major chore, even after it had gone through a 2 hour cleaning I had to continue to scrub it. It was less than 1 week old and I thought it was ruined.
Pros: the only pro about this stove is that it looks modern.
Cons: mother board died within 4 months Oven takes forever to heat up. front large burner too large.I have had this range for 14 months, have had 4 issues , even with extended warranty repairs are a nightmare. glass top difficult to clean. small drawer.
Summary: I love this range so far. It looks great and everything works well. I haven't used some of the bake and convection features but their availability is wonderful to have. The cooktop cooks fast and efficiently. I only wish it had knobs rather than digital control, but that is probably because that is what I am used to.
