This versatile, high capacity gas range includes a high-quality true convection oven: a feature often reserved only for professional level ranges.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Excellent convection heating
While most ovens have a heating element at the bottom, this oven has a heating element mounted at the rear that works together with a fan for true convection. This eliminates burnt bottoms when baking biscuits or cookies. Also, the convection allows you to cook meat with excellent results.
Pro Large oven
This is one of the largest single-oven consumer level ranges you can buy. It has a massive 6.3 cu.ft oven capacity and allows you to use three racks at once.
Pro Spacious cooktop
This range’s cooktop is large and versatile, with four burners of different sizes and heating capabilities. There is an oval burner in the middle that can be used with the included griddle or other types of long cookware.
Pro Notifies you when the desired temperature is reached
The oven will let you know when it has reached the designated preheat setting, so you can place the food inside at the right moment and minimize energy waste.
Pro Has a timer for cooking and cleaning
This range has a timer that allows you to preset a time for cooking, so you can, for example, have hot food when you arrive home. You can also use it to schedule the self-cleaning modes.
Pro Can be used for griddle cooking
The cooktop has an oval burner where an included griddle can be attached. It works well for cooking things like pancakes, eggs, or bacon.
Pro Very fast boiling time
The front right burner can quickly produce lots of heat, which is great for boiling water in almost no time at all.
Pro Makes moving heavy pots easier
Thanks to the continuous cast iron grates, it is very easy to move heavy cookware around the cooktop.
Pro Very little smoke when broiling
Since the broiler is not very hot or powerful, broiling doesn’t produce as much smoke as with some other ranges.
Pro Has a warming drawer under the unit
You can keep your already-cooked food warm while rest of the food finishes cooking.
Pro Control panel is easy to use and read
The control panel’s display is clear and easy to understand. The responsiveness is also quite good.
Pro Burners knobs are well-placed
The burner knobs are angled towards the user, making it easier to access them.
Pro Easy to clean
The range has two cleaning modes. Steam cleaning is meant for gentle cleaning that makes it easier to remove grease from the cavity. Pyrolytic cleaning, on the other hand, burns off tough stains, but this takes more time and is harsher to the oven.
Pro Fast preheating
Thanks to the efficient heating element and the well-insulated cavity, the oven preheats very quickly. It only takes about 8 minutes to reach 350 ºF, which is faster than other large ovens that usually need more than 10 minutes to reach the same temperature.
Con Slow broiling
Not the fastest range when it comes to broiling. It can take up to twice as long as with an electric broiler.
Con Food can get burnt in the back of the oven
Since the heating element is located at the back, it may burn food placed too close to it. You have to make sure not to put anything too close to the fan.
Con Only available in one finish
The range is only available in a silver metallic finish that may not go well with all interiors.
