About - Whirlpool WFE330W0AW

The Whirlpool WFE330W0AW is part of the kitchen range test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric range models like the WFE330W0AW 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.

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

Comment:
Never realized there was no Self Clean on this, assumed when they said it had Steam Clean option that it was with Self Clean. Accidentally had a large spill in the oven and have steam cleaned it 5 times and cannot get spill up. called whirlpool and they basically told me to keep steam cleaning and scrubbing, cannot use any cleaner on it
How long have you owned it:
