Smart Sensors Monitor Oven Temperatures So You Don't Have To The AccuBake® temperature management system enabled by 6th Sense™ technology controls cooking elements to deliver consistent results, even on multiple racks.

Easy-to-clean cooktop is also easy on the environment The eco-friendly Schott Ceran® ceramic glass cooktop is manufactured without the release of hazardous metals into the Earth and wipes up quickly, too.

Space-saving dual elements The dual elements accommodate various sizes of cookware with two elements in one, so you have more flexibility.

Multiple elements give you multiple options Keep cooked food warm while you complete other dishes or use all four cooktop elements to finish more quickly.

5.3 cu. ft. Capacity Easily handles larger cooking jobs, even a jumbo holiday turkey or an oversized casserole.

SteamClean Option Spot clean the open floor 9X faster than a traditional self-cleaning cycle 3 * using only 1-1/4 cups of water-no harsh chemicals or cleaners needed. Used periodically to clean light spills on the bottom of the oven, it keeps the oven clean and reduces the need for frequent self-clean cycles.

Hidden Bake Element Exposed bake elements have an irregular surface with hard-to-reach areas that are difficult to keep clean. Whirlpool brand places the bake element beneath the oven floor, creating a smooth, even surface that is easy to wipe clean.

TimeSavor™ Plus True Convection Cooking System Seal in flavor and juices with the TimeSavor™ Plus true convection cooking system. A rear fan and a third heating element in the back of the oven circulate hot air over, under and around food to bake quicker than an oven without true convection. TimeSavor™ Plus true convection cooking roasts 30% faster 2 *

Energy Save Option Similar to the sleep mode on a computer, the Energy Save mode can be activated to turn off the display after 5 minutes of the range not being used. Press any button, and the display becomes active again.

Eco-Friendly Schott Ceran® Cooktop with CleanTop® Cooking Surface The only black ceramic glass cooktop that does not release hazardous heavy metals into the earth during manufacturing process. CleanTop® design helps minimize cleanup with a smooth surface that withstands intense heat without cracking or chipping.

Rapid Preheat Preheats the oven 40% faster than the normal preheat function to achieve a temperature ideal for single-rack baking.

(1) 6"/9" Rapid Boil Element A more powerful radiant element brings liquid to a boil quickly and provides cooking flexibility by accommodating various sizes of cookware.

(1) 6" Warm Zone Element This fifth cooktop element keeps food warm while other dishes are being prepared.

Precise Clean™ Cleaning System Automatically cleans the oven based on soil level, so the self-cleaning cycle only lasts as long as necessary. No harsh chemicals or cleaners are required.

3 Adjustable Oven Racks Provides more flexibility in the oven.

AccuBake® Temperature Management System Achieve uniform baking results every time with the AccuBake® temperature management system. A built-in sensor monitors oven temperature and controls the cooking elements to deliver consistent, delicious results every time. 1

Sabbath Mode Overrides the oven's automatic shut-off function, keeping it active for hours of uninterrupted cooking and making it possible to use the oven on the Sabbath without turning it on.

Control Bake This baking mode keeps the broil element turned off, preventing the tops of foods from overcooking, so pies and turkeys come out just right.

EasyView™ Extra-Large Oven Window Provides better visibility of the oven interior with an extra-large window. Monitor cooking progress without opening the door, keeping oven temperatures steady and undisturbed.

Delay Bake Lets you program the oven to begin cooking at a pre-set time. Prepare food for baking when it's most convenient for you and find dinner ready according to your schedule.

Lower Storage Drawer Provides extra space for your pots and pans.

Control Lock Disables the control panel to avoid unintended use or other changes to your cooking settings.

Custom Broil Allows you to set your preferred broiling temperature in 5-degree increments between 170° F and 500° F. High heat is best for grilling meats, while low heat is ideal for delicate tasks such as melting cheese.

Keep Warm Uses low heat to keep food warm inside the oven, so you can keep completed dishes from getting cold while you work on the rest of the meal.

Hot Surface Indicator Light A safety feature indicating if a cooking element is on or is still hot.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Dont buy! Find a better product.

Upsetmom 4/20/2018

I purchased this stove brand new. I've had nothing but issues with it. Well today I figured I would try to fix it. As everyone else gave me the run around about it and said it only had a 1yr manufacturing warranty. So dealing with the issues, as long as I have. I needed to fix it. Well after doing some research, many have issues with the same thing. I found a way to do a test. It came back with 1-Failure and 6- faults. I looked them up and found the broil k3 is bad and is an outrageous part to replace. A part for over $300.00!!! Are you kidding!!! What a rip off after purchasing almost $2500. in appliances from Lowe's.... With no help from store or manufacture for all this time. Stay clear!! :( #stillnobaking

Came with house

8/5/2016

I'm sure when this was new, it was a good appliance. We are having trouble with baking. I can bake once, then I have to unplug and plug back in the cord to reset the oven. Not a happy camper.

hdog 3/14/2015

My most recent whirlpool range is 4 years old. The oven now over heats up out of control. My previous whirlpool range lasted 10 years and the only reason I parted with it - it was sold with the house.

Horrible oven

Kimballfd19 2/14/2012

This oven takes approx. 35-40 min. to preheat to 350 degrees! Convection fan became incredibly loud in first month (had to replace). This is not a very good oven.

Very Slow Warmup! Uneven oven heat

mercifullyfree 12/24/2011

Takes 25 minutes to reach 400F! Even with "Rapid" Preheat!. Is this by design? Is this because oven elements are under bottom? Uneven overv baking - hotter on right side. Range elements are too hot to simply keep food warm, even rear ones with lower wattage. High wattage range elements are good for fast boiling though. Wish for better low heat control.

Best product ever purchased!

AFreeman 10/31/2011

This is the best investment in a kitchen appliance that I have ever made. The cooking times are less than a traditional gas oven, the cooktop is easy to clean, and the timers are loud enough to hear from the other side of my house.

L-O-V-E it!!!!

BrendenBaker73 10/30/2011

Love this thing! Glad we spent the money to upgrade to this model - ours was over 20 years old and some burners stopped working. Everything I have tried to bake or cook turns out great. I have no problems with any features - I especially LOVE the self-cleaning cycle. The stove top cleans so easy since it is flat! It is just awesome.Now I need to talk my husband into a new dishwasher!

JimmieMae 10/28/2011

I love my new stove, it is awesome! I have not had a new stove in 20 years and I am so happy to have made this selection! I highly recommend this stove to anyone looking for a new appliance as I am a senior citizen and it was easy for me to use and ot hard to learn how to use either.

busymommathree 10/24/2011

The rapid preheat feature on this range is fantastic. The oven is spacious and I'm looking forward to putting the convection feature to the test this holiday season!

doc1109 10/20/2011

The repid preheat feature is really nice. The stove top heats quickly and evenly. My only complaint is the stove seems to cook a little hotter than normal (we have to cook everything using the lowest recommended bake time). The mirror-like stovetop finish is very nice looking but it does show prints, smudges, ect. so you have to be diligent about keeping it clean (not a fault of the stove just a observation). Overall I like this stove and would purchase it again if I had it to do all over again.

over 10 months of excellent service so far

ruthern 10/19/2011

We've had this range for over 10 months, and we've enjoyed using its many features. Steam clean is great for quickly cleaning up spills in the bottom of the oven.I only wish the top was easier to keep clean, and a scratch has already appeared near one corner. It's our first smooth top though, so we have just assumed this is how they are.

GREAT ELECTRIC RANGE AND GOOD PRICE

JDPACE 10/19/2011

We love this electric range. It has everything we wanted and even more options that we wanted. It is so advanced and works great. We've had no problems at all with this range. I think it was a great price for all of the options it offers. I especially like the way the burners come on and off while keeping the heat accurate which saves us energy. One of the best features is how easy the oven will be to clean up since the heating elements are hidden.

I love the convection oven, it bakes food so evenly. It's a very beautiful stove with self cleaning features. I enjoy the big open window view of the oven and the smooth stove top features. Thefan in the oven run very quiet. The appliance is very easy to clean. Adequate storage space underneath. I am please that it was available in the color I wanted.

we enjoy this nice range very much. it heats up quickly, and has a variety of features to adjust to increase that as well- and we like the energy saving clock. the cooktop does get dirty easily and is hard to keep looking clean- invest in ceramic cooktop cleaner for sure...but otherwise, this appliance rocks!

there are features about the stove that I do not like

saucysue 10/16/2011

I owned a Whirlpool smooth top stove for over 15yrs and I will have to tell you that it was a much better built stove then the one I just purchased. The smooth top was so much easier to clean and keep clean then this one. the bottom drawer is so much more flemsy then the other ones. So if I could have kept my other one wit h the problems that it was having compared to this one I would have.
