I've had this range for about a year now. All the complaints here are ridiculous. This is the best value avaiable for a stainless gas range. The look is phenomenal. If your grates are uneven take them back because mine are level. Soapy water cleans the glass top, then go back with a dry cloth to buff off smudges (Takes maybe 5 minutes). Cooks great, with good pots it'll boil water faster than any electric I've ever used. All the complaints here are from people who seem to want a 5K+ range for under 2K. From an average cook who wanted a cool looking range that performs well I'd buy it again.

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT
I have had this for about five years - I can confirm the negative feedback posted by other users 1) There is a MAJOR, MAJOR, MAJOR design flaw with the door that ends up cooking the knobs (they are plastic). The price for each **** is $75 and price of the Skirt is $25. 2) There is an MAJOR design issue with the knobs turning on from the slightest touch. You brush against it and the gas comes on. 3) I have had issues with the touch panel not responding. If customers really had a voice, this product would have been recalled for safety reasons but in these times "Corporations are now People" .

Had this since 2009.

I have had this since 2009. My knobs are plastic but I have not had an issue with them. However assuming you leave the oven open for a few hours running at full blast, I bet you will damage the knobs. The heat is vented through the back like every other gas oven but not the front. Its not the only oven out there with plastic knobs so W-t-F. A person posted a comment that the she bumped the knobs in her nightgown and her friend saved her life as the microwave was exploding, or something. . The knobs need to be pushed in and turned for the gas to turn on. Maybe she bumped it big tuckus on the **** and turn it without knowing causing the gas leak. Thank g-d her friend was there otherwise she could have caught the whole trailer park on fire!! A friend at 3:00 am, get married already!! Really, it has a heavy duty 36 inch stove on top and a standard 30 inch oven on the bottom. Nothing fancy electronic but looks good and works in a practical way for those not in the 1%. I have a house I am remolding for sale and will put this unit in so I am a second time buyer.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Dangerous purchase

I purchased this stove and have had many issues with it that Sears will not resolve without charging a ton of money!!! The plastic knobs are just the beginning of the issues that you will have to eventually deal with. My oven door explodes from the gas pressure because it will not ignite. I have to stand vigilantly beside to ensure that the oven pilot ignites or else I will have a killer stove on my hands!!! I will never buy from Sears again!!

Does the job

I love cooking with gas after cooking with electric for most of my life. I will never go back to electric now that I got this stove. I like the cooking light and we have used the convention cooking once- otherwise I forget that I have it. I got the stove because I liked the long burner in the middle and we have used it a couple times but I don't suggest you buy the pan that fits with the stove as the sides on that pan are not steep enough for holding anything should it go over the sides. Also that pan is super heavy! What I don't like about this stove is that when you have the timer on, you can't see the clock time. Also the black cooktop is hard to keep clean - you see smudges and salt partials all the time. We clean our stove with ****** cleaner and once a week we use a stainless cleaner to the front of it. Now comes the biggest thing I hate about this stove: where the knobs are to turn the front burners on, the letters are rubbing off. Yes, rubbing off! I can actually rub them off as they are not permanent. So where is states Left Front, Left Rear, Right Rear, Right Front and Center Burner it no longer states that. One of them states "ft e" for Left Rear" and "g t r" for Right Rear, etc. One burner says nothing next to the ****. When I wrote the company, I heard nothing back and when I asked Sears about it, they said I had to be careful with what I used to clean it with and they do come off. Seriously? ****** cleaner and stainless cleaner since it is stainless steel on the front. They said I would have to buy a new front panel if I wanted the letter again, so they could rub off again- I don't think so. I think this is a safety feature. We've had the stove three years with no service on it and just last week, the controller just went out on it. Switch to gas if you have not already- you will love it!!!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Love this

I have good luck with this stove. Only thing I don't like is that the simmer burner is in the back and should be in the fron to allow constant stirring or whisking. I also find the oven a bit small for the size of the stove.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

how about them knobs

this range has met my expectations in its overall function. however I would like to know how any quality assurance design engineer could have in his right mind approved the lousy quality control knobs on this stove -- disgusted is putting it mildly-- come on, cheap plastic , that's right cheap plastic knobs -- in todays world they have plastic that is strong durable and will last ten thousand years -- these control knobs are terrible --- for a little more money YOU COULD HAVE HAD A GREAT PRODUCT -- FIX IT SEARS -- HOW ABOUT A SET OF REPLACEMENT KNOBS OF HIGH QUALITY -- PLEASE !!!

WARNING - GAS EXPLOSION OR FIRE - DO NOT BUY THIS

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT THERE IS A MANUFACTURING DEFECT WITH THE KNOBS. THEY ARE VERY SENSITIVE AND IF BUMPED YOU EITHER GET THE GAS OR THE FIRE. WITHIN THE FIRST FEW MONTHS I WAS ON FIRE IN THE KITCHEN AND BLAMED MYSELF. WHEN REACHING INTO MY CUPBOARD/MICROWAVE THE **** WAS OBVIOUSLY BUMPED AND MY NIGHTGOWN CAUGHT ON FIRE. THEN LATER I WAS SAVED TWICE FROM A GAS EXPLOSION. MY HOUSE WAS FULL OF GAS WHEN I WAS SLEEPING AT 3:00AM MY FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE. I HAVE BEEN ADVISED TO WARN MY VISITORS ABOUT THAT STOVE BECAUSE THEY USE THE MICROWAVE TO HEAT THEIR COFFEE. BETTER YET I SHOULD PUT UP A WARNING SIGN IN MY KITCHEN

Great product thus far

The only issue that I had with this is that it is 1/8ths of an inch larger than a 36'' stove meaning that I had to make a few changes to my countertop by cutting the stone. It seems to work well - - Granted, It has been less than a month at this stage. I will update this later on

I would recommend this product to a friend.
