6.7 cu. ft. capacity double oven electric range with Dual-Choice™ element
Maytag Gemini 30 i MET8775XS Very Satisfied
I am very happy with the stove so far. I did have to return the first two that were delivered as there were manufacture defects (a chip in the first one and a small dent in the second. The third delivery finally passed the quality control Maytag should have passed before delivery to the store and me. I also will need to calibrate the stove as the top stove is off by 50 degrees, I haven't checked the bottom yet. I would like numbers on the dials, which would make it easier to remember temperature settings and wish they made this model with burners as an option rather than a ceramic top. I am still very pleased with the stove, after I finally got it installed. I love having the xtra oven, like the modern stainless design, it is easy to use so far. I would buy this same model again. As others have posted, I use the top oven for small every day needs and the bottom oven for larger holiday dinners and entertaining. It does make life easier inthe kitchen with the two ovens.

Really enjoy the dual oven arrangement.
Overall we like the selection we made with this double oven range. It gives us more flexibility during holiday meals. Good collection of features and reasonably priced. We found we needed to calibrate the oven temperature about 10 degrees up to work with our known recipes. This is our first range with a smooth top cooking surface. It is a nice change, but it has its own shortcomings. The range purchased included stove top cleaner with scrubber pads. However, the cooktop protectant should also be included. I wish I'd had it from the start. The glass surface needs a certain level of attention to keep it looking good. Certainly not low maintenance. We probably were a bit naive. Also the glass in the doors shows evidence of steam moisture running down the glass surfaces inside the door. Is dismantling required/recommended to get the glass clear again?

Super fast heat
I am really enjoying the top oven. Cooks quickly and with less power. I really thought food would over cook on the top but it doesn't. The pre-heat is so fast I don't turn oven on until about a minute before I'm ready to place food in oven. Range top is easy to clean and heats super fast too. The warmer feature is very useful for keeping food for the late to eat person. Stainless is easy to clean too. I've used the lower oven twice. The fan (air flow) was so even, everything cooked even. I don't need to rotate food in either oven, during cooking time to insure even cooking. The timer sounds should be adjustable or louder. I don't hear them if I'm in another room. I have not had to clean oven as yet. The only spills were in the top oven and easly wiped up.

This range has everything I've always wanted. I've had it a little over a year and this range has held up to a heavy duty test..
Honestly I was a little nervous about the smooth top because I cook with cast iron a lot and there are warnings that using cast iron and copper pots could mess up the surface. I bit the bullet and bought it anyway and I'm so happy. My cook surface is in great shape and so easy to clean. Common sense told me not to drag cast iron across the top. Simply lift to move it. I have one pot with a copper bottom I consistently use that hasn't affected the surface; however, this pot is at least 40 years old and newer copper pots may be manufactured different than back then.
I have always wanted 2 ovens and I love them. The top oven is the perfect size for everyday use, casseroles and even my cast iron dutch oven and weekends I use the bottom convection oven which I love. With the holidays right around the corner 2 ovens will be great.
The oven temps are spot on. The stove top has 5 burners. The warming burner works beautifully, one extreme heat to get something boiling quickly then turn the knob in the opposite direction and it's normal heat. The front left burner can be used normally, or if you have a large or elongated pot turn the knob the opposite direction and it heats a larger area.
I can't say enough about this product. I couldn't be happier!
I haven't tried the oven cleaning feature yet, I'm a clean cook - lol, but I'm sure that feature is great. Also, I haven't tracked whether it is energy saving so I can't speak about that.

Love the double ovens.
My first Thanksgiving dinner turned out great. Loved the double ovens. When it came time to cook my thousand Christmas cookies I felt I had to recalibrate the temperature 10 degrees higher. They turned out perfect after that.
One con to me would be how hard you have to press the buttons. Maybe it will get easier over time and use.

Could not ask for a better overall kitchen range!
I hesitated to switch from gas to electric but have been totally amazed at the ease of cooking both on the stove top and in the ovens. The stove top provides more even heat than my previous gas range, and the results are fantastic. It is also amazing to clean - just wipe with a damp cloth and you're done. The idea of having two ovens is wonderful. I use the small oven almost daily when cooking for myself - I often bake rather than fry foods. My bread is turning out great in the larger oven. Both have even and accurate heat. I would not hesitate to recommend this product for both beginning and experienced cooks. It also looks great in my kitchen and has been surprisingly economical to use.

Best Range Ever
I have owned another brand Convection Range before but it could not compare to the quality of this Gemini Electric Double Oven Range with EvenAir Convection! I absolutely love it. Baked goods turn out professional quality! Cakes are moist, cookies crispy, pizza tastes like it came out of a stone woodburner oven! The timer features allow me to time many things at the same time, which my husband also loves! It's an amazing Range! The cooktop is sleek looking and the whole design makes it look like a very very expensive Range! Greatest purchase! Extended warranty assures that I'll have it for years to come!

This is a Great Range
This is my 3rd house I've owned and my fifth electric range. And it is by far the best range I have ever cooked on and in. This range produces excellent results for every type of task: baking, broiling and stovetop cooking. It has easy to use controls, dual convection ovens, and a smoothtop surface, which hides radiant heating elements under a flat layer of glass. It also features the modern stainless-steel finish that is popular in design.
