The stove is very dependable. The burner grates are very heavy duty and don't slip while cooking. The oven temp is well balanced and cooks wonderfully! Temperature Control The oven temp is wonderful. The only complaint that I have is in regards to the burner descriptions on the burner dials do not match the flames. I believe that the "medium" written on the dial is indeed closer to a high. However, you can look at the flame and ensure that you have the amount of heat desired. Heat Distribution Great distribution! I love this stove! Durability I've had the stove for 3 years and have never had an issue with it working exactly as I want it to work. Design I do not like the buttons on the top of the stove. I would much rather have a dial. The buttons have a very poor response. Ease of Cleaning The self clean is great on the oven. My only complaint is that the back of the stove has yellow stains like burns when you use self clean and the stove is white.
