KitchenAid
This KitchenAid KERS505XBL-BL is great if you've always wanted more flexibility in the kitchen but never had the space for a built-in double oven, this double oven range is a great solution.

Two ovens allow you to bake a pie in the quick-heating upper oven, roast a turkey in the spacious lower oven, or both at the same time. Prepare multiple dishes simultaneously, even at different temperatures, with this double oven range. The slow cook function allows you to take a complete dish straight from the oven to the table. 4.2 CuFt lower and 2.5 CuFt upper ovens provide a total of 6.7 CuFt capacity.

Don't buy this!!

By Avid cook

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Electric Smooth Top Double Range:

This oven lacks insulation! It loses heat very easily. When the oven is on, the cooktop gets hot to the touch, reflecting the loss of heat from the oven. The oven does not maintain consistent temperature, even when the door is kept closed. There are hot/cold spots in the oven. This is a huge disappointment. Our 20 year old electric range that this replaced was moved to our basement and it is, by far, much better performing (even though 20 years ago we had a VERY limited budget and bought a basic unit). I like the warming drawer. The cooktop warming zone works well, but renders plates too hot to touch. I like the bake time feature, which means I can put food in the oven, set bake time for 45 minutes and then leave the house. The cooktop is fine, but difficult to keep clean. The aqualift technology to clean the inside of the oven does a fairly good job, though your oven won't be pristine. My old oven incinerated everything inthe oven (& produced smoke), but it did render the oven beautifully clean. This aqualift will leave the walls of your oven and your glass window still dirty. The bottom of the oven gets clean, though. And, be sure to remove the oven racks when using aqualift, as they aren't supposed to be in there. So, your racks are always dirty. Finally, the computer that operates the control panel was programmed by someone who doesn't cook. For example, when you turn off the timer (which is annoyingly quiet, it is easy to not hear the timer.) and need to immediately reprogram the timer for another few minutes. You hit the timer button and then the numbers to reprogram the timer, right? No, instead pushing these numbers will change your bake temperature. Instead, you have to hit the timer button 3 times to get it to reset so you can program the timer.

Cannot recommend this range, aqualift or induction cooking

By mdpigroaster

from Columbia, Md

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Electric Smooth Top Double Range:

We have had this for 3 years. We have had problems with the controls, feature not available, oven shutting off by itself. The biggest issue is cleaning. Aqualift is useless. It will only get rid of minor, not baked on food. If you bake or roast a lot and get baked on food you will need to find away to remove it and they don't recommend any cleaning solution. I am a big bread baker and do like the breadproofing setting. However, in baking bread and using very high temperatures, it seemed to develop a burning smell. No amount of cleaning using Aqualift would get rid of the smell. We did buy an extended warranty from KitchenAid and had two service calls for the electronics and smell. The tech said the smell was just from baked on food. He suggestion using a cleaner for the baked on food. For the electronics they had to replace a circuit board which needed to be ordered. We ended up using a commercial cleaner which solved the problem but may have removed the aqualift covering. Recently the burned smell has come back. Induction cooking is a great concept which I like, but it is difficult finding quality cookware that works with induction. Especially non-stick cookware. This oven was very expensive so I cannot recommend it. I cannot recommend Aqualift and hope that they find an alternative. With the smell returning, we decided to buy a new range, electric stove top and use this as our backup as we do a lot of cooking.

Like the choices for the range top and oven.

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Electric Smooth Top Double Range:

So far, it has been good as far as cooking but I don't like the glass top. It's hard to keep clean and I have some scratches on it from trying to clean it. Is there an easy way to clean the glass top? I would love to hear about that if there is.

Disappointed

By Kathy

from Bellevue, Texas

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Electric Smooth Top Double Range:

This was my first self-selected range for us in our 35 years of marriage. I thought I had made a wise choice but it wasn't. I received a gift of new cookware made especially for induction ranges . The burners don't work consistently. The large burner seldom works and the other three randomly work. One may work today but not the next day. The oven sometimes gives the message "Feature not available" and will not come on. I purchased a 5 year extended warranty. Serviceman came, ordered parts and I am still waiting for one part that has been on back order for months. I am very disappointed in this Kitchenaid product.

buy another brand

By Indeterminate

from Carleton, Michigan

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Electric Smooth Top Double Range:

I bought this same model in white KERS303WHO in 2013 and hardly ever used the oven. The first time I went to use the AquaLift Self Cleaning Mode I smelled burning wires and the oven automatically shut off. After unplugging it for 10 minutes I tried to bake a frozen pizza, but no heat. I found a little packet "For Service Technician's Use Only" and ran the diagnostic mode only to extract the error code F6 E1 RUNAWAY TMP and saw that the warranty expires after a year. Living in a remote rural area I can not afford $285.00 plus the service call for the temperature sensor and timer circuit board replacement.

unpredictable

By Kathy

from Bellevue, Texas

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Electric Smooth Top Double Range:

I bought this range because we could not get a gas appliance where we moved. My contractor had several set backs while remodeling the house so the range sat in storage for about 10 months before installing it. I had trouble right off trying to find cookware that would consistently operate on all of the burners. Even though the cookware said induction, it might work on one burner but not another. Then the next day it might work another burner but not the one as the day before. The oven decides when it wants to work. I got "Feature not Available" a lot. Now it won't come on at all, but the warming drawer works! I bought an extend warranty but since we are in a rural area the company handling my extended warranty can't find anyone to service it. They said that if I can find someone, they will 'reimburse' me. Still looking for that someone. This was my first purchase of a range, and I am really disappointed. I need an appliance that works every time!
