I love my freestanding gas oven :D I'd never cooked with gas before and was a bit hesitant, but I am so glad we got this one. Heats up in no time, looks good, cooks food great! I love the black because it matches our other black Frigidaire appliances and looks great in our little kitchen. I recommend this product and the other Frigidaire products I have reviewed because they all work so well together and are reasonably priced for the great quality that you get. The new versions of this freestanding gas oven look much more attractive than the one pictured too. Temperature Control Woks great but one thing I noticed about the stove top was that it was difficult to get it to a low temperature, no such problem with the actual oven though. Both stove top and oven get nice and hot very quickly. Heat Distribution Everything I have cooked has turned out great, there seem to be no irregularites in the heat distribution. Durability We have only had this oven for three weeks so I can't really give an accurate description of it's durability or lifespan, but so far we are loving everything about it. Design Looks great and cooks great! Black matches the other Frigidaire products for a gorgeous kitchen. Ease of Cleaning Everything on top lifts off for an easy clean! No little itty gritty spaces for grime to build up. Very clean looking.
