Overall, good stove for the price

Have only had stove for a few days. Love the sleek, slide in design. Easy to install, except leveling feet very difficult to get to when stove top gets closer to resting on the counter top(almost requires a special thin wrench). Really like the stovetop burners, particularly the dual size front burners, The Hot Surface light on the cooktop itself is a much needed safety feature. Oven heats quickly and holds temp. Broiler works exceptionally well. Though no broiler pan comes with the stove. You apparently have to order it separately! .

The New Range

We are very disappointed with this Range, its very cheaply made, the bottom draw bends like a thin coke can. The inside you cant put anything to protect the bottom. But most important, it didnt not fit in the cut out, its 1/4 inch bigger, so we had to hire someone to fix it and ist cost us $150.00. My old Range we had for 15 years, never had a problem till now and I cook and bake all the time, we never eat out., the people who picked he old one up asked us if we cook, it was so clean and nice, I really miss it.

Fits perfect

This slide in range fits perfect with my counters which is why I purchase same range (new version slightly different) twice. My only complaint is one of the top burners not working both times I've purchased it.

Hate this stove.

Absolutely hate this stove. Stovetop is impossible to keep clean--the old stove had a seran (sp?) which was so easy to keep looking nice. The oven takes forever to preheat. Burners do not keep the level of heat you select--if you want to barely simmer and turn the **** all the way down, your food will still boil. When you initially turn on the burner and want it to boil, burner will almost immediately lower to very little heat. I agree that the drawer is very cheap and flimsy. I thought I would get used to this stove but still hate it. Husband said I should review so I did.

Hate this oven

Easily scratches and the bottom drawer is a piece of ****. It's actually stuck in the open position and is coming apart. You can only open it a little bit or it will come off track and is not easy to put back. I actually had one range replaced after a few months but am still having the same issues. And it takes forever to preheat the oven.
