Very good for the price
This is a wonderful gas range. This range is economical and gives you all the options of a bigger stove. The double ovens are great; I have Celiac and inevitably I have to bake two different items. The bottom oven has those great features to bake two things on different shelf levels at the same time. The center top gas cooking unit is perfect for big pots like for canning. It works great for everyone in the family. The only thing I wish Sears would have added or thought about is some type of removable plates on the top of the stove under the gas units. It does make it a bit more difficult to clean up. I don't know if Silicone could be used for this purpose, but maybe someone at Sears could think of this added feature to add to a very good stove.

Kenmore Elite gas range is not worth the price

Since January 17th of this year, I have had two ranges.  The first  range was exchanged because of several defects such as warped grates, severely dented burner cover in bottom oven and an accent light level that was unadjustable.  This is a $2000 plus range.  Now I find the second range is defective also.  The top oven will not heat to temperature and it also has a warped grate...or maybe it is the top of the range.  At this point it doesn't matter.  The top oven, the smaller of the two, does not double as a "warming oven".  That is rediculous for the price.  Also, it you get any food on the grates, it will not wipe off.  You must use grate cleaner and submerge the grates.  This is because the surface is very rough instead of smooth.  When wiping off the grates, black flakes drop on the range top.  Kenmore Elite is not worth the price.  I do not have any idea how this will be resolved, but I am one very unhappy customer.  It's a shame because my kitchen has many Sears appliances that make me very happy.  Sorry Sears, but you need to produce the quality to match the price.  NO RECCOMENDATION HERE!  Save your money; buy something else.

I just installed this stove

I just installed this stove. I haven't had a gas stove in many, many years. I've only had electric cooktops. It seems to me that things are taking longer to cook on the gas stove. Not sure how this could be. In addition, the "turbo" burner is not nearly as quick as is advertised. Again, I feel my electric cooktop was quicker. I'm going to give this some more time to see if my opinion changes. It is a very pretty stove and looks great in the kitchen. I thiink I'm going to really like the smaller top over as most times It's just the two of us and it's nice not having to heat an entire oven.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

GREAT GAS RANGE!

I have cooked with a gas range for over 21yr. However, my previous 2 ranges were white or cream, and the stovetop was a real challenge to keep clean. So I chose black and now I spend only a fraction of the time cleaning the stovetop! I chose the 2 oven option as I prefer that to using the convection option, especially for bread. The lower oven is my primary oven and to some people it may not be a good option as the oven is very close to floor level. However the doors are shorter than normal oven doors so you can get real close to reach your baking pans inside. What I like best is the grate that covers the entire top of the stove. This is very convenient for placing hot pans and casseroles when you take them out of the oven. The biggest burner is great for pressure canning and takes only a short time to heat up a tall canner. Each of the burners has a different level of BTU so there are 5 options of power level including a simmer burner which is just right for cooking rice. I really like the clock display, and that I can read it while the temperature of the oven is displayed to the side. However, if the timer is set, those numbers show where the clock was displayed, and the time is not displayed. The buttons are sensitive and don't need a heavy touch. The self clean works well and the oven is also insulated exceptionally well. This keeps your kitchen from getting very much warmer and also more efficient and even baking because no heat is escaping. It does take almost 20 minutes to heat the lower oven to 400*F, which is longer than some ovens, but I would still choose this oven over any other in the market.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

slow preheat

The oven doesn't preheat very fast. Top burners take too long to ignite.

Love my Double Oven

I have had this oven for over a year. I totally love it. We have cooked items in both ovens at the same time and everything has come out great. The top oven is awesome for most things. We have had to use the lower oven for turkeys and baked chicken (and ocassional bbq ribs). Best oven ever. You will love it!!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

More black than stainless steel

I purchased this range with the black cooktop because the salesperson said it would be easier to clean than stainless steel. I was surprised upon delivery to realize the sides are black as well. Placement of our range is such that only one side abutts up against a cabinet. Consequently, black - not stainless steel - is the predominant color you see with our range. I wonder if the sides would have been stainless steel had I selected a stainless steel cooktop.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
