KitchenAid gas range delivers solid performance, but it'll cost ya (pictures)

The KitchenAid KSGB900ESS is a beautiful appliance loaded with useful features and extras. But lackluster boil times and its price tag dull this range's appeal.

The KitchenAid KSGB900ESS is a 30-inch slide-in gas range with a stainless steel finish.

The KSGB900ESS has a streamlined control panel and continuous cast-iron grates over the five gas burners.

The knobs on the KSBG900ESS have a little texture, which makes them easier to grip.

The KSGB900ESS has a 6.5 cubic foot oven capacity, a huge bonus for the avid baker.

This KitchenAid model comes with a steam tray that allows home cooks to add moisture to their baking.

The KSGB900ESS's steam tray made for very moist muffins in the test kitchen.
