Lovely, but a little glitchy

We purchased this 48" commercial-style range for its looks and price. It looks fantastic and creates the focal point we wanted w/o being overwhelming for a residential space. The burner work surface is huge and all burners work as designed. The griddle is lovely to look at but is a little bit of a bear to clean. The surface is chrome so needs to be treated delicately. The cleaning instructions state to heat the surface to 300 degrees, pour water on the surface and use a non-scratch pad. When we tried that, the Dawn non-scratch sponge basically melted onto the surface! We ended up with a mess and had to use Goo Gone and elbow grease, which ultimately worked. Now, when I use the griddle we let it cool off completely and only use dish soap and a sponge - no heat. That seems to do the trick but so far we've only made pancakes so not sure how a bigger mess would clean up with this method. The oven latch on the left broke when the oven door fell off (!) and we've rigged it with a paper clip for now until the technician can come back with the part. We think that the hinges weren't properly locked during installation. Fingers crossed that does not happen again. Getting the door unlatched required a cocktail, a patient husband and a coat hanger. The fan to the small oven is noisy! the one on the right is not a problem. The tech said it was normal due to the design of the small oven (a narrowed air-flow channel?). I am not buying it. Next time he's here will ask him to pull the oven out from the wall and check the fan from the back side. It sounds like it it's loose. We ordered the optional stainless steel knobs (the oven comes with black metal) and while they looked glam, they were too hot to touch when the oven was on. we are returning the knobs. Lock the control panel when ovens are on and turn off the beep/sound feature. Or the oven turns off when you lean over it and panel is always beeping at you at slightest touch.

We bought this range for our new construction. Overall we are happy with our purchase but there are few improvements it should have, like oven lights should be separate but currently it lights up both. Also warming time for oven is much longer. Griddle should be cast iron

Don't run a self-clean

Ran a self clean cycle on both ovens at 5 years. Smaller oven won't heat at all now. Larger oven won't heat all the way to temperature. $500 to replace one control board. Didn't fix the problem. Being told we need another $700 in repairs to replace both blowers and one door latch. Tech isn't confident that will even fix the problem. We brought in a second tech who recommended different repairs but at similar costs. We decided to pull the plug and just buy a new range. Stay away.

Ovens have not worked properly since day 1. Bought this "high end" range for our busy BNB and has been nothing but a headache. The burners and grill cook like a dream but the ovens, the ovens have ruined meal after meal and causes much unneeded stress and anguish by not getting to temp or keeping temp. I've got paying guests here for meals and my biscuits will "melt" in a 200 degree oven while dial reads 375. Dealt with Sears over and over and they ended up replacing original range after a 9-month headache now 2nd range is doing the exact same thing after only 7 months. I'm frustrated. Angry and disappointed. Why can't Kitchenaid make a proper oven? Never again. Don't buy this. I wish it worked because I like it and I love the griddle. But it's a piece of trash to me if the ovens won't get to temp and keep temp. Oh and the fans on the oven are SO loud. Anytime the oven is on, you have to listen to a rattling, noisy fan.

This range has already earned its reputation this holiday season! It allowed two cooks to stand side by side preparing two dishes. Everything had space to cook, roast and bake.

Worst oven and customer service for 2 year old range!

This is my second review for my 2 year old range. My first review was in February 2016, wherein I received an on-line response in July stating I should email Kitchenaid. I did email, but did not get a response, so I called today because my ovens do not work and Christmas is this weekend and I have a large crowd coming on Sunday. Kitchenaid came out last February for a "good-will" service call because we were passed the 1 year warranty and since it was the same problem they had tried to fix a few months earlier. The February service call seemed to fix the ovens until last week, causing the ovens to work sporadically. Now, the smaller oven does not turn on at all and the larger one worked 1 out of 5 days, taking longer than normal to heat after several attempts. I called kitchenaid customer service requesting them to switch out the range because I did not want another Christmas dinner ruined. They said it is passed warranty and I would have to pay $300 to extend the warranty or they would give me a discount on a new range! This is for the same problem we have had with the ovens since the first month we had the range! And fixing the problem only lasts for a few months! This range is defective and kitchenaid will not replace it. This is the worst experience I have ever had and would not recommend kitchenaid to anyone ever!!!
