What's great about it: Huge cooking element, warming center and drawer!
What's not so great: No bridge element
All the features on this range were appealing to me and after reviewing lots of brands (including maytag double oven and GE profile) I finally made my decision.
The 12" cooking element is great!!! my big frying pans and pots fit perfectly and cook better. The warming center is also a great feature for when food has to sit for a little bit at the stove before I serve it, keeps it just warm enough an plus it has 3 settings depending on how hot you need your food to keep. Not having a bride element was a con for me since I do use it, but no biggie I did not have it in my old stove anyways!!
A plus for me was the warming drawer, I wasn't really looking for one since I'd never used it and tought I did not need it. Believe me, you need it!!!!!!! if you order food out for a big party or simply if you want to keep a big serving plate warm it works wonders!! plus food stays crispy and does not wilt like it would happen if you leave it in your cooking pan or it does not dry as it happens with leaving it in the oven. It also has 3 settings.
The oven works very good, altough it is quite big for me since I don't bake a lot (I wish it were a double oven like the maytag). But i've used the steam clean feature and it's the greatest idea someone ever had to make cleaning an oven a little easier. Don't expect the grease to be collected at the bottom of the oven to wipe it down. You still have to wipe the whole oven to get rid of that, but at least is easier than trying to scrape it out. Love the hidden baking element though it makes cleaning a lot easier.
The great look of this range just makes the icing on the cake, plus the digital controls and big knobs give it a more expensive look. I love it! that's it. I hope my review helps someone.
I would recommend this to a friend!

What's great about it: Ribbon elements, huge oven, great convection
What's not so great: oven light doesn't stay on when you open/close the door
I recently bought this unit because we do a lot of baking and wanted a proper convection oven. This oven is so big, you can easily bake 8 loaves of bread at a time on 2 racks and get even browning.
I really like the oversize 12" element, and they all come up to full power almost instantly, just like on a high-end range.
The stove top is easy to clean and the steam clean feature works well for light soil.
This unit gives the impression of quality with its thick, heavy door and smooth oversize knobs. The glass touchpad should be more reliable than a bubble pad but it does take some getting used to (you can't slide your finger but must completely remove it from the glass in order to register a button press).
The only thing I don't like is the fact that the oven light does not stay on when you turn it on manually and then open and close the oven door.
I would recommend this to a friend!

What's great about it: Great look, large oven, cleaning feature, nobs for adjusting burner elements
What's not so great: electronic keypad is a bit finicky sometimes
I haven't had it long but I am really liking this range so far. I have noticed that the electronic key pad sometimes requires me to hit certain buttons 2 or 3 times before it will actually register that I hit the button. Other than that it's been great.
It was between this and the LG for me and I thought the rotary controls for the burners on the Samsung would be immensely easier to use than the digital controls of the LG and I am happy I made that decision now.
It takes a little while to get used to the convection oven making a little noise (the fan) but it's normal and quiet . . . just different than when I didn't have a convection oven.
So far so good . . .
I would recommend this to a friend!
