    Pros: Gas cook-top and convection oven ALL IN ONE.
    Cons: The grates on the stove-top are uneven, which causes pans to wobble somewhat.

    Summary: I bought this range in 2006 because I wanted the control of a gas stovetop, and the benefits of a convection oven. This range fits the bill! The two ovens are also very useful. We use the small (top) oven over 80 percent of the time - it preheats ... read more

    Pros: The 16000 BTU burner, quick-heating top oven, versatility of two ovens.
    Cons: Cleaning cooktop is cumbersome, timer only beeps once, so easily missed.

    Summary: After 9 years using builder-grade white appliances, my husband agreed to let me replace the electric coil-burner/unevenly heated oven range! I knew I wanted a gas cooktop and two ovens, but our kitchen is so small there was no way to fit a double oven ... read more
