Needed a new range to replace my 46 year old range
after searching for a replacement that would fit my current insert that was a 46 year old Moffat Epicure
range, I made sure that i would try to find something that would take the test of time and hopefully will give me the same type of service and reliability that I had. The Kitchen Aid not only did it fit perfectly into the existing space, and the hook up was simple and perfect as an upgrade, the unit has been performing extremely well. Love the fact that we now have a light that works so you can see in.
Great product 4 months into it 40 years service requirement. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

We remodeled our kitchen and bought the fanciest appliances that Lowe's had (Kitchen Aid) : oven, cooktop and the dishwasher.
The cooktop is impossible to clean, the dishwasher does not dry dishes properly and is too slow, but the oven is absolutely awful - it has never worked right.
The problem with this unit is that it is TOO LOUD! Even if I broil smth for 5 min only, the fan will turn on immediately and stay on for about 30 min after! They call it a cooking fan. And it is a very loud fan! If I bake something (not even in a convection mode, but simple backing), it will be making the same noise during the baking time, plus, at least 30 min after)! You hear that noise in the whole house.
Besides, in the broil mode a new noise appears - it is vibrating noise, and 5 times more loud. And this noise will come and go - very strange (please see my video attached). We called KitchenAid immediately but they said it is "kinda normal" and they did not offer any solution. after our second call, they sent a guy to check on it, but he told us that he never worked with this particular unit and did not know what is a "good noise" and what is a "bad noise".
Then, yesterday, the oven did not turn on at all. No light, no button responds. We called Kitchen Aid and complained. The first thing they worried about was the warranty. Our oven was purchase 13 months ago but Lowe's delivered it only 8 months later (due to our kitchen remodeling delay). So in fact, while still at Lowe's, the warranty was already on... So, KitchenAid refused to cover the visit of the specialist under warranty (even if the unit never worked right).
We are very very upset with KitchenAid! Never ever I will recommend them to anybody. Next time will go only with GE!

27" Single Wall Oven with Even-Heat Thermal Bake/Broil
This is a great little oven, its's 27 inches, easy to use, and the design is one of clean lines. It looks fabulous in my kitchen. I have only had it since mid July. I have baked in it and broiled in it and I find the heat even and I like the feature that when I open the door to remove the food for turning over, the oven doesn't lose heat. It did not come with a broiling pan, but I saved the one from my previous oven when I realized there was no broil pan included. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

This oven is not only beautiful inside and out, but it bakes like a dream! It has every bell and whistle available, a cobalt blue oven wall that is stunning, and it bakes so evenly and beautifully that it's amazing! I had four friends for a vacation at my house, and they sat in my kitchen watching me cook, because they loved seeing how well my new Kitchenaid appliances work!

We bought this over a month ago and found it to be one of the best appliances that we have bought.Our old wall oven was 28 years of age and we needed a new one. This was perfect , the even heat , the ease of operating it and just everything about it was perfect. We are glad we purchased a Kitchen Aide product.

Very impressed with this oven. The controls are easy to use and very clear. The oven is surprisingly large. Love the large window. No longer necessary to open the door to see how the cooking is progressing. Just wish a broiler tray had been included in the purchase price given that this oven was expensive.

Good oven but requires long preheating time
This oven has significantly more usable interior space than my previous oven which had the same exterior size.
Having the bottom coil beneath the floor of the oven makes it much easier to wipe spills.
The control pad is fairly intuitive to use and has good sensitivity.
There is a lock for the control pad so that the oven will not be turned on accidentally.
The oven temperature can be calibrated using the control pad.
The audible signals are pleasant-sounding chimes.
Timed baking and delay start work well and are easy to use.
The oven has an unacceptably long preheating time, a full 20 minutes, despite the fact that the preheat signal chimes after only 8 minutes. My husband determined this using a laboratory-grade thermocouple, and it was verified by a KitchenAid authorized service technician who also used a thermocouple. The technician explained that the preheat signal is based on time (8 minutes), not measured oven temperature.
The same service technician determined that my oven was running 25 degrees low even after it fully preheated. While this is within factory specifications (which allows plus or minus 30 degrees) and is within adjustable range using the control pad, it means that as the unit ages, if I need to adjust the calibration higher than the 25 degrees it is already adjusted, I can only raise it another 5 degrees.
This is an attractive oven inside and out with some very nice features. However, I cannot say that I am completely satisfied with it because it takes so long to preheat (20 minutes) and so long to bake, typically taking longer than recipes designate, even though the temperature has been calibrated.
