Very Poor Stove with Extremely Poor Customer Service

Comments:

have had a repairman out for the refrigerator 4 times (still not fixed), for the microwave (actually for the exhaust hood) 3 times (still not fixed), and for the stove 1 time (still not fixed). I read on consumer reports that KitchenAid appliances has one of the higher repair rates, but bought them anyway. Do yourself a favor and read reviews closely before buying. Also, KitchenAid customer service is worthless in my opinion. They have been unhelpful at best, and actually rude some of the time. I made a very costly mistake with these purchases.

The cooktop is great but my oven bakes unevenly - and I love to bake. Hopefully we will learn to live together happily eventually.

I've had this range for about 2 months now and wish the stove top was easier to clean. The grates are heavy and cumbersome to remove. The warming drawer is filmsy and cheap feeling. I do really like the slide out rack in the oven. I am perlexed about how to use the convection vs easy convec and I can't find information in the owners manual on this feature. The biggest issue is when do I use convection! There is no detailed information in the owners manual for convection. I spent extra to have true convection and I'm still confused. Any advice is appreciated.

This new range is now the focal point of our kitchen. LOVE the five burners and there is nothing like cooking with convection!!! Just be prepared to PRIME your oven. The first few times we turned the oven on it smoked and smelled until the fumes burned off. The retailer said that's normal. I just was not prepared for that. Still doesn't take away from my appreciation of our new KA range. We replaced a 20 year old JennAir. Can't afford JA anymore.

I have owned my range for almost 2 years. First, the aqua clean feature is terrible and I still have to manually clean the oven. Second, if I bump up against the knobs for the burners, they turn on and gas starts coming out, way to sensitive and I feel I big safety issue. Third, the brushed nickel metal on the stove is very easily dented. Overall, totally disappointed with this product.

So many nice features. The slide out oven rack is a breeze. Kitchenaid should offer this rack in all of their ranges, really nice. The warming drive is convenient for families on the go. As this is my first convection oven, I was a little apprehensive about my Christmas baking, but all of my cookies turned out great. As mentioned in other reviews, the stove top grates are a little heavy. Smaller individual grates would have been a little easier to handle, especially for an older person. Something to keep in mind if you have arthritis in your hands/fingers. Kitchenaid may want to consider offering that option on future models.

Range knobs get very hot when oven is on

Comments:

I bought this range to replace another gas range. We are very dissatisfied because the knobs on the front get very hot when the oven is on. Using the broiler makes it almost impossible to use the burners because the knobs get extremely hot. Too dangerous to allow my grandchildren in the kitchen while we are cooking.
