Love the double oven.

By

Comments about Maytag Gemini Series 30" Freestanding Electric Double-Oven Range:

Time is valuable in my house and there never seems to be enough hours in the day to get all of the things done that I want, so when my old oven went out, I knew that I wanted to find a double oven so that I could do a lot more at one time. I found this oven and fell in love with how it looks. The stainless steel is so nice looking and it matches all of my other appliances. I like that the top oven is small, this is great because it heats up a whole lot faster than any other oven than I have ever had so I can start cooking things faster and get them done. I have noticed that if I am running both ovens that the top oven does get hotter than the temperature I have it set at (I think this is because heat from the bottom oven is rising up) so I always set the top about 10 degrees lower and it keeps things cooking perfectly. It has a self clean setting which makes cleaning it pretty easy, I use it about once every 3 months and then deep clean it once a year. I love it during the holidays because there is never enough space to cook all of the food so having two ovens makes it a lot easy to get things made.

Best stove I have ever owned!

Comments about Maytag Gemini Series 30" Freestanding Electric Double-Oven Range:

I absolutely love this stove. It actually makes me want to do more cooking because it is so convenient! A few of my favorite things about this stove is the warming center and double ovens. The warming center is something I use just as frequently as I do the burners. The double oven feature is great. The top one is smaller for more simpler stuff and both are great for cooking big holiday dinners. Another feature that I enjoy on this stove is the display of the clock and timers. The flat burners are great and easy to clean. Also has good safety features as well. If there is nothing sitting on top of the burner that you have turned on, it will not get hot. Great sensor for families with small children. The oven will cut off automatically if you have the timer set. Once the timer goes off the oven cuts off so no worries about burning anything. Love the light inside the oven that you can turn on or off at anytime. Makes a great night light in the kitchen as well!

Comments about Maytag Gemini Series 30" Freestanding Electric Double-Oven Range:

I purchased my Maytag Double Oven Range after my old oven that had come with the house quit on me. I cook a lot & most of the time, I cook from scratch. The top, one rack smaller oven preheats very quickly and is the oven I use most often. The lower double rack oven preheats slower than the top. It is great when baking several pans of food at once, such as cookies, or when baking different items at different temperatures, such as when I bake an egg casserole at 350 degrees and and biscuits at 450 degrees. Before having my Maytag Double Oven, the egg casserole would be cold by the time the biscuits were finished baking. Now I just time them to come out of the oven at the same time, so they're nice & hot.

The bottom oven is great for baking a whole turkey, loaves of bread, or when baking something in my deepest casserole dishes which don't fit in the top oven.

The only draw backs are that the glass top scratches easily with my stainless steel pans & the lower oven is difficult to reach to clean if you have short arms like I do. I highly recommend this product for anyone who does much baking.

Comments about Maytag Gemini Series 30" Freestanding Electric Double-Oven Range:

We bought this double oven/ range a number of years ago and it the range has always worked perfectly. We had a problem with our control panel about 5 years in but, we got that repaired and have had no problem since. The control panel apparently went kafluey because the heating elements were fine but, the only thing that wanted to work was the broiler. Once the control panel was replaced, the oven worked like a dream again.

Temperature Control
Temperature is always spot on

Heat Distribution
Everything I cook gets thoroughly cooked - no hot spots, etcetera

Durability
Working like a charm after 7 years.

Design
Love the design

Ease of Cleaning
I can either just use the selfcleaning option display some oven cleaner and wipe off the mess later.

Love this!

By 

from Oxford, MI

Comments about Maytag Gemini Series 30" Freestanding Electric Double-Oven Range:

I love this range! I primarily use the top oven and it's the perfect size for nearly everything I cook. I use it for garlic bread, french fries, etc. I only use the lower oven when doing something that requires a different temperature than the top oven.

Making a big batch of cookies is great with this range. I can have cookies in both ovens and be done in half the time!

I got rid of my toaster oven because the top oven does a great job of toasting and I can toast enough for my family of 5 all at once. Perfect!

The stove top does a nice job and cleans up easily. I do with there was a larger burner in the back, to keep it away from teh kids.

Temperature Control
It seems right on. The top preheats to 350 in about 4 minutes.

Heat Distribution
I've not noticed any problems with this.

Durability
We've had this for 2 years and have not had any problems with it at all.

Design
The oven doors are tough to see through, but they look nice.

Ease of Cleaning
The top oven is small and can be difficult to clean.
