Cooking is a Dream with my Maytag Range!

Have I told you lately how much I love my new Maytag appliances?  And after having the opportunity to go check out Maytag’s testing labs, I’m even more impressed with their overall functionality – their appeal was already a done deal.

StoveStove2

Every Thanksgiving I make my infamous Champagne Turkey – and every Thanksgiving it’s always hit-and-miss on when exactly the turkey would be done.  There was one Thanksgiving we were supposed to eat at 1:00pm – but my oven was being stubborn and didn’t let the turkey get done until 5:00pm.  I know, right?  This year proved to be a world of difference with my new Maytag stove, though:

Notice how huge the inside of the oven looks?  That looks like a chicken, not a 20-pound turkey, doesn’t it?  The footprint of the stove is the same as my old stove, but the oven itself is much much bigger.  And actually cooks the way it’s supposed to.

Princess Nagger thinks the left burners on the stove top look like an impression of Mickey Mouse:

It does, doesn’t it?  Notice there are three rings on the front left burner?  I love that you can be selective on how much of the burner heats up, depending on the size of your pan.  So often I’d use a smaller pan on a large burner and have to be extra careful not to touch the outside edge, or spill anything.  I love that you can have just the size of the burner you need – all with the same control knob. 

One of the many features I absolutely love is the speed heat mode on the front right burner:

SpeedHeat

I timed it – my big pasta pot filled with cold water (and I made sure it was really cold) came to a rolling boil in under 14 minutes:

My old stove would take at least a half hour to get to that point, if not longer.  Even the little warmer zone in the back center actually works the way it’s supposed to – apparently I didn’t know what I was missing when I had a malfunctioning stove before – I thought the quirks were normal, but obviously not.

I’m looking forward to utilizing the self-cleaning option, too – with my old stove, I’d have to plan in advance and try to limit it to the winter months, since the old oven would get up to a zillion degrees to fry any spillage and turn it into ash.  This new Maytag range has an innovative coating with AquaLift Self-Clean technology that activates with water and some heat to release tough baked on soils from underneath. 

I sure could have used that the one Christmas I got a little overzealous with the apples in my apple cranberry pie and the juices spilled out into the bottom of the stove and stuck like glue.  I don’t plan on being overzealous like that again anytime soon, but it’s nice to know that any spillage will be taken care of without fearing that I’ll end up setting the house on fire.

You can find more information about Maytag’s 6.2 cu ft Rangeon their website or through the Maytag social media profiles on Facebook and Twitter.

Holy Cow! What I want to know is how do I become a Maytag Gramma! hehehe Look all I do is cook. Four children and their spouses = 8 & their children = 9, the two of us = 2. Add that all up = 19 people coming for dinner Christmas day! Being mostly Italian we’re having Lasagna and meatballs being as it was turkey for Thanksgiving, and so a spiral ham on New Years! I also like to make what I call “Moody Surprise”, which is my own concoctions! ~snicker-snicker”! My most important feature on my oven would have to be No. 1 the timer. No. 2 self cleaning. Being as my back doesn’t bend bending over to scrub a oven I would have to wait for one of the kids to come over to clean same & the broiler. Yours I must say is a dream come true! Congrats my dear friend. Great Post & thanks for sharing. Happy Holidays!

I do agree with what you have said. As I can see, if you have all of these cooking set you can cook anything you wanted. I do love to have a set too.

Hello. I really like the photos of that beautiful range you posted. I’ve got an electric range too. I have always liked it in the past, but when I use a gas one it’s pretty nice. That variable size burner is probably one of the coolest features I’ve seen on a range in a long time. Maytag appliances always impress.
