We bought this range, the convection microwave and the 980RSS dishwasher for our newly renovated kitchen. A dual fuel range sounded strange at first but we decided it is really the best of both - a gas cook top, which we wanted to replace our old drop in electric range, but we didn't want a gas oven. Buying a separate cook top and oven would have been out of our price range and would not fit in our kitchen without major remodeling. This solved the problem. It has everything. I have used the griddle with the middle oval burner for hamburgers and grilled cheese, and it does a perfect job, way better than a frying pan. Cooking with gas is so much smoother and controlled than electric burners. The convection oven works beautifully too. We did baked salmon and it came out perfect. The range looks great in our 1950s modern house and is extremely easy to clean. Until now I didn't cook much, but now it is fun and I plan to learn some more recipes and get busy with it. The combination of the range and the convection microwave is great, and with the lower oven, we have three ovens, large, medium and small, as well as full featured microwave. Also the griddle does not generate as much smoke as using a frying pan with our electric stove, and it is cleared efficiently by the microwave built in vent fan, so does not set off the smoke alarm. Over all, we are delighted with our new kitchen. One thing about price - once you decide what you want, check ALL the appliance stores as well as the big box stores, as the prices vary a lot for the same appliance, way more than we expected, and we got the best price at a place we did not expect to.
