Comment:
Replaced old range in 40 yr old house. New range works great, but it's a 60 amp unit which was installed on a 30 amp circuit. Installers never checked and neither did I. Check your breaker box to make sure the circuit can handle the range!

Comment:
We have had the exact same stove for over 10 years except ours has a warming oven.<br /><br />Very good stove for top heating and baking. Inexpensive.<br /><br />Problem: some of the oven touch pads with time stop functioning. Replacement is so expensive, over $400 Canadian, will have to buy new. This is a shame because stove still looks like new, wiring like from factory, and elements fine.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Very useful stove for general cooking. Cheaply made though...burners and brackets that hold the burners together fell apart right away and had to be replaced. A gray dust comes off the burners (like the paint chips off) when taking apart to clean. Bottom drawer handle very small and drawer hard to open. Very reliable oven, and the top burners heat up very fast. I use the stove for cooking and canning. Not well made like the old time ranges.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
