About - Maytag MGR8880AS

The Maytag MGR8880AS is part of the range test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, gas range models like the MGR8880AS are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Cooktop high:
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.

Cooktop low:
This how well the lowest-powered element or burner kept a low temperature as for melting chocolate. 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.

Large Meals For Crowd
New cleaning system is subpar. Run cleaning cycle with water at the bottom of the oven. Should loosen food so that it can be swept away. Cleaned the bottom of my oven but not corners, etc. Manufacturing rep says run it again. Cannot use regular oven cleaner so I am stuck with a system that does not work. Hope that no one else buys this model.
How long have you owned it:
