This stove/oven is wonderful! Has a compartment in the bottom for storage of pans for baking. Has 5 burners on top. Some are special burners ie, a simmer burner, one special for boiling (has higher flame) etc. I was hesitant about cooking with gas, but this stove is great. It heats things so much faster and it cooks very evenly in the oven. It is self cleaning also so that is a major plus. It has a cook timer, regular timer, and easy push buttons on top for the settings. Also has a clock. Temperature Control Push buttons on the top for the oven and it beeps so you know you have preheated to the correct temperature. The knobs on the front are easy to turn to get your burners going. Heat Distribution Cooks food very evenly and fast. The oven cooked a casserole and cake very well with no "hot spots". Design Very sleek and modern. Love the black and the stainless together. Matches my other appliances very nicely. Has a window to see into the oven so you don't have to open the door. Also has a light. Ease of Cleaning Self cleaning oven. Just give it a wipe once it's finished. The top is also easy. The burner top are easy to pick up so you can get the top clean.
