About This Brand
This midlevel, mass-market brand sells gas and electric cooktops priced between $630 and $1,000 and wall ovens that cost $1,000 to $1,500. The appliances are sold through Sears, home centers, and independent appliance retailers.
Width (in.) This measurement indicates the width of the front of the oven in inches. It does not indicate the necessary size of the cabinet cut-out, which is model dependent. Note that a wall oven will typically fit into the same size or wider cabinet.
Covered element Smooth cover or floor over the bottom baking element makes for easier cleanup of drips and spills.
Convection mode Has a convection feature that uses a fan or two to circulate heated air, and sometimes an extra heating element. The convection mode can be turned off if you prefer conventional cooking.
Temperature probe A temperature probe is an electronic thermometer that can be inserted into cuts of meat. It allows for the internal temperature of the food to be displayed on the control panel and for users to control the oven.
The oven makes constant noise. There is a very loud fan that you cannot control! It is on all the time. Even after you turn the oven off. I guess it decides when it has cooled off enough. It runs the entire time it is cooking and then for a very long time after it finishes. This is not A convection oven. It is a simple plain old oven that makes a ton of noise. I HATE THIS OVEN!

Very happy with the oven.
Easy To Clean
Heats Up Quickly
The fan has an uneven hum to it but nothing that bad. Heats quickly, two lights and a great big window. Steam and self clean work well. Hidden lower element is nice. Don't really need convection as this has even heat.

NIce looking unit, but fan is noisey
This is a very nice looking unit , but the noise level of the fan takes away from the overall purchase experience on a $1300 oven.
