I purchased this range to replace the one that installed when my house was built in 1974. It was also a Whirlpool electric range and although the oven on that old model did not heat evenly i never had a problem with it. When i decided it was time to update my kitchen i bought another Whirlpool and this is the model i went with. I had to calibrate this oven and manually adjust the temp which is outlined in the owners manual. First thing i cooked in it was a frozen pizza and it took longer than expected until i read how to set up the cooking temp but once that is done you dont have to mess with it ever again. Temperature Control I have baked everything from cookies to big tom turkeys and it heats very evenly for an electric range. Heat Distribution It is very good for an electric oven Durability It's hard to kill a whirlpool appliance. Design It is very well designed the only way it could look better is to get a Stainless Steel model. Ease of Cleaning It is a oven with coil burners not a flat top so it is harder to clean.
