This model number coincides with a two-oven range. Epinions has it listed as a single oven which is not correct.

I bought this range three days before Thanksgiving. It was just in time to utilize the 'Perfect Turkey' feature. I have never had a more moist oven roasted bird. The beauty of it was I didn't have to do a thing once I put it in the oven. I don't believe in 'stewing bags', but have always believed in basting. I didn't baste once. The turkey came out perfectly browned, perfectly cooked all the way through. The oven tells you when it's done.
I have used the convection bake, defrost, broil and rapid pre-heat functions. This oven performs very well in all. I am a personal chef and this range is my third in 12 years. So far, this out performs any commercial range I've used at a client's home.
The burner configuration rivals any Wolf, Viking, Dacor or Miele. I personally wish I had more than a 30" space for a range, but I don't. I am glad I bought this range; five burners, 18,000 BTU, 14,000 BTU, 2 9,500 BTUs and one 6,000 BTU seems to provide everything I need for mutliple dishes cooked at the same time.
Because I put ranges to the test, and the two previous ones (Kitchenaid and Fridgidare) have failed to perform, I honestly can say under the conditions that I require to cook, this range doesn't have a problem performing to my expectations.
For the $2200 I paid for this range, I could easily have paid twice that amount for a commercial range without any of the features this one offers. I never thought I would ever utilize them, but I have, and they are wonderful.
I don't think this is an expensive range; granted, most big box stores sell model that don't exceed the $2200 mark. You will always pay more for a slide-in model and you will always pay more for dual fuel. After having a dual-fuel and then switching to convection gas, as a chef, I can honestly say that BAKING with gas is far superior than electric. There is nothing better than gas all around for cooking, on stovetop and in the oven.
Do yourself a favor and buy a new range that truly performs effortlessly and isn't afraid to throw out that heat on the stovetop!
