The Cooking Chameleon
Convenience at Your Fingertips
I thought after reading some of the reviews I might have a problem with my new range but no problems at all. So for all the bad reviews here are some helpful hints. 1. To keep the top from scratching do not slide your pans. I didn't do that on my old stove not because I was trying to keep it looking good because of spills sliding pans around is never a good idea. 2. Some of the ovens are off a bit with the temp which is not a big deal. I had the same problem a tech was sent out and was fixed within a few seconds. These appliances do come with a warranty. After it was fixed it worked like a charm. 3. As for the racks tipping the food out onto the floor I have not had that problem. I have cooked breads, roasts, cakes and pies and as long as the racks are used as directed there has not been any issues with my racks doing that. 4. The range top temps do take a bit of getting used to if you are coming from an older range. My old one was a good 15 years old and when trying to cook on my new one the first few times I noticed that it does get hotter then the old one does so you will have to learn how to scale things again. Watch your food while cooking. Don't think just because you used 4-5 on your old stove you can do it on this one. The temp is different so think of it as learning to cook again but this time it won't take you as long. The only real con I have about this range is my cats seem to enjoy it a little too much. I wake up every morning with little paw prints on the stove top. Easy enough to clean. I keep a bottle of Cerama Bryte just above the stove so it is always close by. Great product for this stove and makes it all nice and shiny again. I have not had any issues at all with stains although the first time I used it was a little worried about some grease that got on the top but it came off pretty easily. Over all this stove is more then what I expected. I adore the bread proof and since I make home made bread at least 2-3 times a week I was so happy to see that the seal is perfect. Not once did I have to open the door to spray my bread. It comes out perfect every time. I have to say another feature that I just love is the alarm when your oven reaches the temp that you want. It is nice not to have to go in there and guess if it has been on long enough to reach that perfect 350 for bread!
We have had this range for several years and it is the worst. The back is flimsy and it’s had to push the temperature buttons. The bottom oven only cooks from the bottom and the same with the top oven. The ovens can only be 50 degrees different. After having this range for less than a year the top part of our range stopped working!! Get any other range but not this one.
This was our Christmas present to us, next step of the Kitchen remodel. We've been in the house for 10 years, flooring replaced, now onto appliances. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I purchased this stove a few months ago and I’m in love. Especially love the dual oven feature. Came in super handy for the holidays where I can bake two things in the oven at the same time. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
All in all I enjoy cooking with this range.Although I don't think it maintains the correct temp in the ovens consistently. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I can't believe I didn't get this sooner! The double oven does with the divider let my kids cook their own things at the same time at different temps, which saves us SOOO much time on fenfer nights! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I purchased the oven as a Xmas present for my wife. The difference in cooking in oven with convection oven is a complete game changer. From French Fries and fish that come out better than fried. To cookies and cakes so much better and faster. Only problem was after the stove purchase wife felt it necessary to upgrade all here kitchen appliances to not only match by looks but in quality and more importantly performance. The refrigerator, Microwave and dishwasher all perform at a level that makes her life so much better. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
