We moved into our home where this was the range that came with the house. If I had the option, I would prefer gas burning over the glass top surface. The coils are even better than the glass top. Other than the cook top and how I prefer it to be a different type, this one does work like you would expect a glass top to work. The oven as well, works as it should. My difficulties with this range are with the quality of it's parts. The bottom drawer is broken (by the previous owners) with only a couple years of use. Additionally, the black pull handle for the over down is broken. With it being made out of plastic, the screws used to keep it attached to the door are striped out and if you tug on the handle a little too hard and a little too close to the screw, it will come off leaving the stainless steel sheet and other layers to the door coming apart. Opening or closing the door at this point is near impossible. Temperature Control glass tops are awful for providing a continuous heat.
