It just doesn't meet my expectations
I've had this oven for six months and it's time to give some feedback. First, I have no problem with the heating, cooking, baking, convection features. None, it works as well as any other range in this category. The features I have a problem with are minor but these affect me daily. First, of all the things that bother me, are the knobs. yes, the knobs. The single/double/triple and LO/HI indicators on the knobs, both color and font size, should contrast not blend, with the knob color. I admit my eyes have gotten worse in recent years, but, even with my glasses on, I find it difficult to determine which setting I am using: WP could have done a better job of making the print bolder and/or adding color for functionality instead of aesthetics. Second, the WIFI drops too easily (so much so, that I stopped using the function). And, when it does drop, you have to reset it- there is no memory stored, no battery back up. An inconvenience, but, if I am away from home, have everything planned ahead, food in the oven, and expecting to turn on or monitor progress using the app, I lose that ability if my wifi drops. Third, the touch screen can be too sensitive (I'm not sure how you can make it less sensitive, but, the feature requires a learning curve). For instance, if I have the oven on and my stove top is dirty (maybe the marinara splattered some sauce on the touch pad) and I wipe it clean, I can inadvertently and unknowingly turn off my oven. Even worse, if my wife comes by and wipes it clean, she won't realize she just turned-off the oven (yup, happened once, but not to much detriment). Again, you work around these nuisances, but, nonetheless, they are nuisances and I would have purchased another range had I paid closer attention to these details. Otherwise, the range works well. Burners burn, oven roasts/convects/broils and with four burners plus a warming zone, there is no shortage of space for pots. And, with the coordinating slim line OTR microwave, it's a very attractive set up. I'd still have trouble recommending it and would highly suggest shoppers to shop around or at least be aware of what I've experienced.
