Whirlpool® 5.8 cu. ft. Capacity Gas Range with AquaLift® Self-Clean Technology is rated 4.4862 out of 5 by 327.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product I really like this range. The only reason I did not give it an excellant rating is because of the timer. It begins at 1 and you have to manually set the time in single increments, I would have preferred to be able to input the time I needed. On the positive side, I have lost electricity several times in the few months I have had the range and it reprogrammed itself for shourt electricity stoppages, which i really liked. I haven't used all the features yet, but what i have used, i ilked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Range I was looking for a range with a convection oven with five burners. I stumbled across this one at a scratch and dent sale. The price I paid was to good to pass up. The range itself is nice; the metal used on the sides in my opinion is a thin material. As I noted this was scratch & dent, the silliest pressure on the metal damage it. The stove has a nice professional look. The grates cover the entire cook top, making it easy to transfer cookware to different burners. I converted the range to propane. The necessary hardware was included. This completed this process myself. It took me a little over 45 min to compile. It was a bit challenging but not to overly complicate. Once in use I adjusted the flame of the burners to even the flames. Just follow the direction on page 11 of your installation instructions. I found that the power burners heated water about the same as my last range. I was a bit disappointed. I do like the different size burners offered, giving a range of options for different cookware sizes. Cleaning the cook top and grates is challenging. I have to use a mild dish detergent or degreaser; afterward I have to wipe away the streaks with napkins. Cleaning the cast iron grates was a trial and error process for me. First I tried with just a simple dishtowel big mistake, fibers from the towel adhered to the grates. I found that if you use a toothbrush with dish detergent and water on the grates is very effective. After cleaning wipe the soap away with a lint free towel. This leaves very little fibers, and whatever fibers are left brush away with a clean damp toothbrush. You will get great results. The oven light doesn't illuminate the entire oven. My last oven gave great coverage. I've only used the oven twice and from a braking standpoint, it produced a gorgeous pound cake. I haven't had the chance to use the convection oven or the aqua lift option at the present time. Overall it's a pretty nice range.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hard to Clean! I am extremely disappointed with this oven. The Aqualift cleaning technology is a joke! Unfortunately you can't use oven cleaners or I would. The cook top looks great, but is also very difficult to clean! I wipe up after each use, but if anything gets on the cook top it takes a lot of scrubbing to get it off. I even use the recommended Affresh product. This is my 2nd oven, as the first oven's convection fan did not go on at all. With the new oven the fan works, but their is no noticeable difference in cooking times between standard oven and convection oven. In fact, everything in this oven takes longer to bake or roast than the cooking times given in recipes. If you set the timer, at the end of the timer time the entire oven shuts off so if your item is not done, you have to turn the whole oven temperature back on. When setting the time there is no separate button for hours and minutes. You have to go through all the minutes for each hour until you get to the time of day you need (This applies to when it first needs to be set, daylight savings time changes or power outages) Additionally, it doesn't move rapidly if you hold the button in. You have to push it individually for each change of minutes. Whomever designed this product and tested it, must not be a COOK. This is the worst appliance I have ever owned and the most expensive. Do not be fooled by the great looks! The stains appear on the surface of both the oven and the stove top even when nothing bakes or boils over. It's strange! I have used non-scratch scrubbers, Affresh and non abrasive Soft Scrub to no avail. Now I just have a dirty looking appliance!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best range I've ever used! My new whirlpool range is beautiful, easy to use, sleek, modern and practical. The flat stove top grate makes it simple to move dishes from the oven to the rangetop and not need to have a trivet on the counter. This saves me space as well. I love the easy-to-use timer and temperature buttons. My food cooks evenly, especially when I use the convection feature. Cleaning is a breeze and it is just the best purchase I've made in a long time--along with the matching refrigerator and dishwasher!!! I recommend this product highly. My only regret is waiting so long to make the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the five burner cook top. Oven has its quirks that I am still getting used to. Digital read is wonderful. The five burner option on the cook top is very convenient and accomodates a large paella pan quite well. The burners burn very clean and efficiently. The blue digital read out is very easy to see. I am legally blind and my old red readout was such a strain to see. The shape of the lower rack in the oven does not take a cookie sheet as well as I'd like. So far, the convection feature has done a mraculous job of baking, but I have found that I do not need to lower the oven temp at all as is sometimes suggested for convection. I have had a bit of trouble with high temp roasting, but haven't spent much time reading the :how to" booklet, so I can't blame it on the oven. That, the lower rack and the very small storage drawer on the bottom are why I haven't given this appliance an "excellent" rating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase Ever!!! We bought our Whirlpool 5.8 cu ft Range a couple months ago and are so pleased with its performance. It is like a new piece of art in our kitchen, so pretty. The aqualift self-cleaning technology feature works great and is so easy to use. The range top is very functional and handsome and has a special simmer burner that we use for our special bean recipe that cooks them perfectly. The oven cooks perfectly and the entire unit is easy to keep clean. Like I said, we couldn't have chosen a better product for our needs. Thanks Whirlpool! P.S. All of our appliances are Whirlpool...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fabulous features I really love this range! I need to have a gas stove due to the fact that I lose power a lot where I live but always hated the single grates. All of the electric ranges have a very nice smooth top. With this gas range, the all over grates give me exactly what I wanted and it makes me feel as if I'm cooking on my grill. They make moving the pots around so convenient and the appearance of them is beautiful. The selection of burners for specific pro boiling and simmering are phenomenal. The only con I have is that I wish the burners were staggered a little more so that the high intensity burners weren't both located in the front. I'd prefer to have one high burner and one simmer burner up front. I've also tried the AquaLift cleaning and it works like a charm. There was absolutely no foul smell, it was so easy to use and it really did a fabulous job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a treat to cook! I have a 30 year old Kensington stove that i treasure. i hated to move and leave it behind. We shopped carefully, because I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. The Whirlpool was our best choice. We have not been disappointed. Talk about ease of use and cooking! I love the very low heat burner in the back for when i put bacon on in the morning and keep it low. It does not burn!!!!! Even if i leave it a while, it does not burn. Fantastic. It's about time to try that special new aquatic feature where you put a cup of water in and it steam cleans the oven. Who would have guessed! I would highly recommend this to any one who loves to cook and bake, both beginner and pro alike. thanks Whirlpool!
