Summary: When we purchased this, I wasn't really sure how often we would use the second oven, never having one before. But that is by far my favorite feature (it can be used as a warmer too, so that's come in handy quite a few times). I use the top oven 10 times more than the bottom one. And if two things need to cook at the same time, it's perfect! I'd never had a smooth top either, so I was so excited about that, however, it has been a true challenge to keep it clean.
Summary: I purchased this double oven range for my wife to replace an older whirlpool single oven coil top range. She loves it! The only thing I would caution anyone looking to purchase this range is that there is very little indent space for the cord plug and receptacle on the back of the range. If your range receptacle is not in a certain spot, the range will not slide all the way back. I assume this is due to the double oven.
Summary: Beautiful look, but after a week, my rating is good, but not great. Wish I had read the reviews prior to my purchase! I had mistakenly thought the oven would slide right in place and fit perfectly. It does fit, but we failed to realize the center wall outlet placement won't work with this oven (as others have mentioned). Because of the placement of the lower oven heating element (where the empty storage area is n other models), the oven doesn't fit against the wall.
Summary: I like the feature of having two ovens even thou I have not utlized the lower oven besides storing pans. However, stove sticks out from the wall and the stove top being black is hard to keep clean. Does show prints, smudges, dust and specs. There were no reviews for this stove at the time of purchase and for the high end price I paid I would have to say some what disappointed.
Summary: We've had our new stainless steel Whirlpool Gold Range and Double Oven for about two weeks now and we love it. The only con that we have found is the color of the cooktop and the sides. The cooktop and sides are both black and extremely hard to keep clean. They show every bit of dust. Our old stove had a grey cooktop and didn't show dust, smudges, fingerprints, etc. I would still recommend this stove to anyone looking for a good quality stove and double oven.
Summary: When oven is turned off after cooking, the oven makes a loud boom. I think it is contracting when cooling down. I am waiting to hear from Lowes if they are going to send me another one. I cant imagine why it would make a loud noise when cooling. Never had any other oven do that. And I've had many different stoves.
