Kitchenaid Front Control Range "UPDATE."
Reports from customers online and via sources like youtube have been excellent. Let's discuss some of the enhancements that have been noticed by homeowners and our own.
For starters, No traditional as we know it self-clean has been good, the heat is so high that it takes 3 hours to clean and then an hour to cool down and is very hard on your range.
The new Aqua lift system that is built into the new Kitchenaid products has been helpful. Just add a couple glasses of water to the oven after removal of the oven racks and then push the self-clean aqua lift button and in less than an hour you're done to sponge wipe out the oven. Simple and fast.
No oven door lock means your turkey won't get stuck at Christmas and because of this new self-clean system that has been out now for about three years you get a new very large oven window and larger capacity oven.
Electronics are loving the fact that high heat self-clean is gone, and we checked with whirlpool corp and asked them about service calls on control boards on these ranges and they commented that replacement of electronics is down by over 48%.
This new line of products does not have that slide in part that goes on the counter tops but is still very nice looking with low profile design.
Kitchenaid's new handles and knobs enhance the look and give it that professional feel KitchenAid wanted.
If you're considering the KitchenAid front control ranges, we say go for it... But be prepared to pay as one fault compared to other products you will pay more for this product.
BENTON HARBOR, Mich. (February 2, 2015) – For product designers, few challenges are as daunting as creating a new design for an iconic brand. When that brand is KitchenAid, and the challenge includes creating an entirely new collection and finish that will stand out in a sea of stainless steel, the stakes are considerable.
