Heat It Up
Built for Serious Baking
Nice & Tidy
It was no contest; after looking at almost a dozen stoves, the LG stood out from the crowd. I love the sleek lines, and the beautiful polished surface with the 5 burners! The oven is large and I love the blue color in the interior. It heats up quickly and efficiently, and by far was the wisest choice that we made for a new oven and stove.

The stove top is fine. The oven is a disaster, When baking it has uneven heating causing the back to cook faster than the front of the oven. Their fix is to rotate food during the cook cycle, a nuisance to say the least. My big compliant is about the Easy Clean feature. There is NOTHING easy about it. Following the cleaning directions you end up with a puddle of water in the bottom of the oven that you have to sop up. Then you get to crawl into the oven and scour out the grease splatters, not an easy thing to do. Even after multiple Easy Clean cycles, I have yet to get a clean oven. Do yourself a favor and don’t buy this stove.
I am a widowed, 73 year old and purchased this stove hoping it would last the rest of my life. It made popping noises in the oven and found out from Repair man the the Convection package was not working. He said that I should buy a new range since the parts and labor would exceed the cost of a new stove. There was no bottom element so it was not an option to bake without convection. Now I am without an oven and I must save my money to buy another. Very disappointed.
I bought the range to go with the refrigerator. I wish I hadn't. The range works fine however, it is not as practical and all encompassing as I would like.
I would love to change the timer alert sound. It is so low and the melody is not sufficient to alert you unless you are in the room. I need a real buzzer to wake me if I decide to nap or multi-task while cooking.
There is no lock on the range door to keep young children or anyone from opening the oven. I would think that would be a common safely feature.
The drawer is so small, all you can fit is a roasting pan. I'd like the standard drawer space for more storage.
The stove top does not clean easily and the heating elements leave a ring on the glass top. This is very unattractive and I am totally taken back that the glass top is not more aesthetically sound. It is obvious that the elements will be used, it shouldn't cause the glass to look worn or have bubble detracting from the appearance of the appliance.
Why does it take 3 steps to turn on the oven and get to my temperature? I should be able to do that in one step. Lastly, why do I have to turn the burner on, press high or low then press the up or down arrows? Just like with turning on the oven, turning on the burner should not take so many steps. I actually prefer to have a dial. The sensors require a firm push for each up or down digit.
The range is very attractive, cooks well and evenly, but there are more cons than pros that I have found in just every day usage. The oven glass door does get hot, so if you have children, keep them out of the kitchen while the range is in use. If they want to look in the oven, they will burn their head and if the grab the door, it will open.
So, if you just want a standard range, and do not mind pressing the sensors just to turn it on, then pressing to get to the temperature. This is the perfect range for you. However, if you'd like a few obvious features like a door lock, a real "timer alert tone", sufficient standard storage drawer, and a stove top that remains attractive looking....you may be disappointed.
Bought this about a month ago ive used it a few times. It's very quiet. Works well. Really like the color our other appliances are the same
Took me awhile to figure out the oven, timer etc. (slow old person) But love it!
I did not have any difficulty installing the power cord. Need to use safety gloves to prevent cuts from the sheet metal. The test run on page 18 went well. The anti tip device installed well. The quick reference guide was very useful in telling how to prevent scratches, chips, and pitting in the glass-ceramic cooktop. I bought this range to match my LG refrigerator for the gorgeous black stainless finish. I plan to replace my microwave with an LG black stainless model to match the range and the refrigerator. Really good looking appliances. I expect the same reliability from the range as I have been getting from my LG refrigerator. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
