The Frigidaire Gallery FGGF3032MW is part of the kitchen range
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, gas range
models like the Gallery FGGF3032MW are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
This reflects how quickly the most powerful burner could raise a 6-liter (6 1/3-quart) pot of water from room temperature to a near boil.
This reflects the gentlest burner's ability to melt and hold chocolate without scorching it. We also set the most powerful burner to its lowest flame 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.
About This Brand
This midlevel, mass-market brand sells appliances priced between $500 and $1,500. The Frigidaire cooking line includes gas and electric ranges loaded with time-saving and high-performance features with a classic design. The appliances are sold in matching kitchen suites.
High-power burners The number of surface cooking burners rated at over 11,000 Btu/hr., maximum. High-power burners are good for quickly heating large quantities, searing, and other high-temperature cooking. Some also perform well on low-heat tasks (when turned to their low setting). Mainstream ranges typically have one or two high-power burners. Pro-style ranges often have four.
Medium-power burners The number of surface cooking burners with maximum output ratings over 6,500 Btu/hr but not more than 11,000 Btu/hr. Though they don't offer top speed and power, medium-power burners can generally handle all cooking tasks.
Low-power burners The number of surface cooking burners with maximum output ratings of 6,500 Btu/hr or less (sometimes called simmer burners). These are intended for delicate tasks such as sauces.
Number of cooktop burners Total number of individual cooktop burners.
Number of cooktop burners
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.
Double oven Double oven models have a second oven cavity. Most have a separate small oven above the main one complete with its own controls, door, window, oven light, slide-out rack, and self-clean function. While the upper oven offers easy access, the main oven is relatively low; you'll need to crouch to remove items from lower shelf positions. Other designs offer two same-sized ovens, or convert a single oven into two using a slide-in partition (though with a shared door.)
Cooking drawer Drawer below the main oven that can cook foods (up to a few inches high), as well as warm or heat serving bowls and plates. The cooking drawer has its own temperature control so can be set to cook a dish independent of the main oven. Foods must be lifted up out of the drawer (lacks a slide-out rack), and the drawer requires manual cleaning.
Slide-in Slides between cabinets; unfinished exterior on the sides of the range. The edge of the cooktop overlaps the counter on each side and all controls are on front panel for a built-in look.
Stainless steel available Many new mainstream ranges come with stainless steel trim or offer a stainless-trim version for an additional $200 or so. Many pro-style ranges (brands such as Viking, DCS, and GE Monogram, among others) have full stainless-steel construction.
My wife is an avid cook, using it three times every day. Overall, the performance has been good. The only problem is that one week into buying this range, the unit began beeping constantly. The only way to stop the beeps is to unplug the unit after use. The circuit card is bad and a new one is ordered, under warranty. Hopefully this fixes the problem. Just be warned about possible quality issues.

No to Top, Yes to Oven & Quick Bake
Difficult To Clean
Grate "feet" Fall Out
No Drip Pans
Too-hot Stove Top
Stove top gets hot enough to burn you when using the oven to bake at 400 or above. For this reason I am afraid to use the self-clean feature - it might have a complete meltdown.<br /><br />The oven features are the BEST part, and I like the quick bake.<br /><br />Grates have rubber feet that stick to the range top and some have fallen out. There are no replacement parts for those.<br /><br />There are NO drip pans available that will fit this range. So there is CONSTANT clean-up. If you are using the oven at the same time, wipe up any spills as they occur, otherwise you'll have a stuck on mess to deal with later.<br /><br />FYI: some of the reviewers do NOT have FGGF3032MW. This model does NOT have the gliding racks that open when the oven door is opened. This # is also gas, not electric.
How long have you owned it:

Cooking with Propane Conversion
Easy To Clean
Heats Up Quickly
Large Surface Area
Bad Propane Conversion
After years of electric stoves at the lake we installed this reasonably priced unit when we rebuilt and went with propane fireplace, furnace, stove, dryer, generator. Now that it is properly installed, we all seem to love it. Gas stoves are waaaaay better than electric. Don't let anyone ever tell you otherwise. And the convection oven speeds baking. We have NO complaints about how the stove works or the price. <br /><br />Our only complaint: We ordered a propane oven. We got an NG oven with a MOST confusing propane conversion kit. It contained a 25 page book and parts enough to convert every possible combination of Natural Gas ovens now made by this company. The instructions were confusing and the parts were poorly marked. The basic procedure sounds simple: Turn a couple of valves to the propane position and replace the orafices for each burner. The problem: bad color coding and tiny orafices with even smaller unreadable tiny codes. The process was to match oriface and burner using the color and code. HAH! We quickly found that we could not read the codes or tell which were colored what. Some had no paint at all, and the reds, browns, and oranges all looked looked brown. There was also purple, green, and yellow; but these seemed to be for another stove. It took two of us FOUR hours to do this conversion. <br /><br />I DID say it is a VERY NICE stove. Just realize what you are getting into IF you do a propane conversion! <br /><br />I did not take points off for the propane conversion issue. We like this thing. Most folks are never going to deal with this, or their installer will do the conversion.
