About - Maytag MER7765WW

The Maytag MER7765WW is part of the kitchen range test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric range models like the MER7765WW are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Cooktop high:
This reflects how quickly the most powerful element could raise a 6-liter (6 1/3 quart) pot of water from room temperature to a near boil.

Cooktop low:
This reflects the ability of the lowest power element to melt and hold chocolate without scorching it. We also set the most powerful element to its lowest setting to test its ability to hold a large pot of tomato sauce below a boil.

This reflects the evenness of cookies and cakes in multi-rack baking tests.

I love this range. think it needs to have a lower element in oven to heat quickly. When it does heat up it cooks evenly and quickly.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
This is the worst stove I have ever had.

Best Uses
Bought range 2 years ago in april. I wanted a convection oven as to speed up baking. How wrong I was. It has never baked evenly and have had to turn what I was baking to cook evenly. A few weeks ago I was baking biscuits (20) minutes at 350. When I went to check on them, biscuits were flat. I discovered temp had fallen and oven wasn't on. Broiler works, but oven works when it wants to. Had a serviceman come out and stove worked great. Tonight I tried to bake fish for 15 mins at 450, it did the same thing. Repairman said if it was control panel it would be over 350.00 to fix. I think we paid [$] for stove. We are leasing our house next month and don't want renters to have to complain about oven. So, do we buy another inexpensive stove, or have to have constant service calls for this stove????
How long have you owned it:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
