When I was growing up my parents had 2 Maytag brand kitchen ranges. When I moved into my second apartment I bought a Maytag range because I did not like the performance of the range I had in my first apartment. I was so glad to be able to switch back to such a good brand! From my experience Maytag ranges are very long lasting, do the job well, have great and helpful customer service. These ranges are about average in price. I highly suggest making the switch to Maytag if you are not satisfied with your current range! Temperature Control The burners and oven heat up quickly. The temperature settings can vary depending on which model of kitchen range you buy. Some models will have advanced temperature settings while others have simple settings. Heat Distribution When using the oven it heats very evenly. I have had other brand ranges where I had to rotate my food while cooking, which was annoying. Durability Very durable ranges! With my current Maytag I only had to have repairs done to it once and that was because it was knocked around while moving. The repair man was very nice and helpful. Design Designs depend on which model you purchase. You can purchase them in different colors. Ease of Cleaning Most of the Maytag ranges have the self-cleaning oven option.
