About - KitchenAid KDRS407VSS

The KitchenAid KDRS407VSS is part of the range test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, pro-style range models like the KDRS407VSS 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.

Poor investment
Best Uses
I owned this product for 3 weeks. It had two problems, first the oven door wouldn't seat and so the oven light would come on randomly. Even worse, the oven blower went out the third time I used the oven. It took a week to get repair people and then they made me sign a waiver that said if they damaged my home, they were not responsible. Then, before they left, they strongly urged me to get an extended warranty (not from them) because of the number of repairs of this range. I have opted to return the range.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Worst review ever!
Best Uses
I have had this stove for 3 months and it is the absolute worst oven I have ever owned and the most expensive! The burners work fine, but the stove intermittently works. It appears that the oven is on and at set temperatures however about 50% of the time the oven temp is 50 or more degrees below the set temp. Sometimes it won't heat completely at and seems to get stuck. I am currently having it serviced for the 8th time as I speak, the technicians are baffled where the parts are located. It has been a complete nightmare. We bought a new home, purchased all new appliances and this has been the biggest let down for the money. DO NOT BUY!!!
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
