Temperature Sensor

A built-in sensor monitors oven temperature and adjusts the cooking elements to help food bake evenly.

12"/9" Dual radiant element Provides the space-saving advantage of having two elements in one to handle various sizes of cookware. The 9" inner ring is perfect for simmering or quickly boiling water in medium-sized pans. The larger outer ring evenly distributes heat to larger pots and pans for better results.

6" Warm Zone element Prevents food from cooling while the rest of the meal is being prepared. This low-powered (20-100 watt) fifth element provides added flexibility and convenience.

Hidden Bake Element Exposed bake elements have an irregular surface with hard-to-reach areas that are difficult to keep clean. Whirlpool brand places the bake element beneath the oven floor, creating a smooth, even surface that is easy to wipe clean.

Keep Warm Uses low heat to keep food warm inside the oven, so you can keep completed dishes from getting cold while you work on the rest of the meal.

Delay Bake Lets you program the oven to begin cooking at a pre-set time. Prepare food for baking when it's most convenient for you and find dinner ready according to your schedule.

Custom Broil Allows you to set your preferred broiling temperature in 5-degree increments between 300°F and 525°F. High heat is best for grilling meats, while low heat is ideal for delicate tasks such as melting cheese.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Prof Susan 11/4/2014

I bought this about 6 weeks ago and it replaced a stove I never liked. This has been great - some adjustments needed to my cooking because of the different placement of the burners but so far, so good. I love the clean look in the oven with no visible coil and look forward to giving the oven a real workout with holiday cooking.

LOVE this oven/stove top combo. The hotplates are HUGE and the oven is very easy to clean (no more bottom coils). The stainless and black color combo goes well with the rest of my black appliances. Only downfall is that I wish the knobs were designed differently.

Great everyday use electric range

rlt1027 11/10/2013

I cook for 6-8 people every night so I needed something with room in both the oven and on the stovetop and this range meets that need. For cons, the only downside for me is that I have teens that cook. This means spills on the cooktop. It can't be cleaned hot, and once it cools we find that "stuff" is stuck on. Even with a scraper and Affresh/Weiman/Whirlpool cleaner, It takes several cleaning attempts and still we have some spots where we simply can't get the cooktop back to the clean shine it is supposed to have.

Willdellis 11/9/2013

I've been cooking on this range since about April 2013 and my food cooks fast!!! The water boils quickly, the oven heats in an amazing way. I tear meals up before my family comes home and everyone is just happy. I would definitely recommend this range for anyone that is looking for one.

Choco13 11/9/2013

" I love the way my new range looks! It give my kitchen an up lift. It performs great especially when one come home late work to prepare several dishes; how fast your meals are cooked. As for the cook top, it seems the options are endless. There are many different burner sizes and the warmer option is awesome. Very sleek. It also cleans very easily."

stylish, difficult to keep top clean

stu7 11/4/2013

Love the look, but it has been difficult to keep the surface clean. I also wonder if it would be better to have the larger burners in the back, so the vents would pull in more of the steam released when boiling items

GHS1999 11/4/2013

Have had it since June. It works great, but I'm still getting used to a smooth cooktop after always using coils. The oven keeps a constant temperature, which seems to help keep it from burning food, a problem I had with my old one. I just wish the oven would heat up a little quicker.

wannaberetired 11/2/2013

This oven controls are cumbersome......when I want to turn the oven on, I should just be able to do that...not have to push 'start'....why else would I have selected Bake or Broil, if I didn't want to use it? Trying to do two things at once, confuses the systems and something gets cancelled that shouldn't get cancelled..... The oven cleaning feature..not the steam one...but the regular one is not explained very well in the booklet that came with my stove...it was pretty simple however and did a great job. Oh, yeh...the oven takes f o r e v e r to heat.....much slower than the old electric I used to have...that is frustrating The burners stay hot for much too long a time and take a long time to heat up. The medium heat is never hot enough If I'd have know this, I would have gotten the model that has the instant boil in 90 seconds feature. First glass top I've owned. It looks sleek, but is a pain to keep clean...Luckily I found a really good cleaner that makes it easy

My electric range/oven in awesome. I love it!!!

lherbertson 10/28/2013

I had a very old stove i used for over 18 years. I had no idea how enjoyable it was to cook and bake on an high quality stove/oven. I love all the features. I cook and bake a lot more now since i purchased this product. I love the self cleaning oven it works amazing and no more fumes from the oven cleaner. My only complaint is that the stove top scratches and is hard to keep clean. With a black finish it shows everything - and i am constantly wiping it and spraying it so you don't see any streaks.

Solid Stove/oven combo

CJ21 10/28/2013

This is the first flat top stove I've had and I am really happy with it. Cleaning is a breeze and the heating elements heat up fast! The oven heats up fast as well and I've had no problems with it at all. Also, extremely easy to use. Buttons are clearly laid out and not confusing.
