I love this kitchen stove. I would much prefer a gas stove but my husband wanted a clean look and a clean look he got. It's not very hard to clean if you clean up right after you cook. Our stovetop does have a few scratches and a few burned stains that can't be removed. There is a special cleaning rub of the top surface but I rarely use for I wipe it down after I cook. The double oven is an awesome factor. It is actually the main factor why I agreed to get this. It's a self cleaning oven which I've never own before so if you use the self cleaning method...you can guarantee you would not cook for the rest of the day. The oven will stay locked until the temperature comes down...that is both ovens. There is steam that comes out of the under the knobs which is annoying. It just wets the stove top when I want to keep it clean. This does not happen just in self clean mode. It happens when I'm using the oven normally. Otherwise we have no other issues with it. And we certainly wouldn't change it to something else.
