I am reasonably disappointed with the Avanti Freestanding Gas Range. This range takes a lot longer to heat up and cook food compared to others I have used. Energy consumption is higher, heating is uneven and sometimes I am not even sure food will be ready in time for a given meal. Maybe I was unfortunate and picked up a faulty product, but I am thoroughly disappointed in this range. The thing that bothers me the most is how difficult it is to clean up this range if a mess happens (and messes happen almost always while cooking!). Spills get into every little nook and cranny and those little slots where the pan supporters fit and then it is a nightmare to clean up. I would not buy this product again myself, nor would I recommend it to anyone, especially if they are on the run and do not have hours to clean up every time they cook something. Also, make sure to double check that the range rests evenly on your kitchen floor before you let the delivery guys leave, if not it is added excitement to the cooking adventure!
