My obvious favorite thing about this oven is the dual chambers for the stove. When we first bought this- I thought it was unnecessary, but it has proved to be a lifesaver for my family. We typically just use the upper stove for a typical dinner. Having TWO is a game changer, especially when I want to make fresh bread with dinner, I can cook each item separately at their own temperature. This oven is also a must for the person that hosts Thanksgiving. We all wish we had an extra oven for large events- and now, you do!! Temperature Control Temperature control in the oven is perfect. It is also pretty awesome on the stove. Most burners have hot spots, these burners do not. they also hold their temperature at a consistent level. Heat Distribution The heat distribution is perfect. No hot spots, all of my meals cook evenly! Durability I judge durability on how well it stands up to my child. Well she rides her bike around the kitchen and easily has rammed into the oven a million times. There is not one single dent and it looks like brand new. Design Just look at this beauty. It is a focal point in my kitchen and it is absolutely gorgeous. My friends and family always comment on it when they are over. Ease of Cleaning Super easy to clean with the self clean function. Press a button and it's done in about an hour!
