Whirlpool's Gold Series gas oven looks great but cooks slowly
Kitchen & Household
Hi guys this is Brian Bennett for CNET Appliances and right now we're taking a closer look at the Whirlpool 5.8 cubit foot front control gas stove with fan convection.
So for $1,749 this range certainly isn't cheap, but for all that cash you get premium build quality, good looks.
In a big convection oven.
This range also offers burner control that are all on the front face of the unit.
They're also flat here sitting on the front lip which gives it a very distinctive and handsome design.
There's also a very slick LED panel right here that displays.
All of the pertinent information as you're cooking.
It definitely looks cool and it's something that sets this range away from others.
I also like this oven has a very large capacity.
It's 5.8 cubic feet in size and there's also
Five burners up top on the cooktop.
They range on the high end at 17,000 BTU, for very high sears.
And go all the way down to 5,000 BTU for melting sauces, and doing light simmers.
So what I don't like about this particular gas range, is that it takes a while to do its job.
Essentially, it'll take a while, to.
Broil burgers, to boil pots of water.
So there's not lots of power that you might see in other competing gas ranges.
And, like I said, this oven costs $1749, and that's pretty expensive.
Especially for a small, compact gas range like this.
The Whirlpool 5.8 cubic foot front control gas stove.
Definitely costs a lot of money but it does provide excellent build quality to match.
If you want a faster performing gas range, you're probably gonna have to go with something from Samsung.
