Just a little over a year ago my oven decided to go out on me, It was only a few more days till Christmas and I had family coming for dinner Christmas day.
So we had some quick shopping to do, when my husband came home from work that night him and I went stove shopping. I had never owned a flat top stove but I have always liked them a lot. So on this trip I was looking to get a flat top electric stove.
We decided on the Maytag 30" electric flat top, it has a self cleaning adjustable oven, not an important feature for me ( I don't mind cleaning an oven manually), this feature was important for my husband, it can be set to light, medium, or very soiled. It has a really large oven bigger than my last one but yet they were both 30", the oven walls are thinner in this one therefore more cooking space, and very large viewing window on the oven door, which I thought was rather nice. The oven is all digital so much easier to get accurate temp. The features for the oven are delay baking, a favorite setting that can remember temp and cook time of your favorite dishes.
It has 5 burners on the stove top, 2 small, 1 medium and then one large that has 2 settings (large and extra large) by just flicking a switch, and lastly there is a warmer in the center back. And it has two light indicators, one to say the stove top is on, and the other to let you know that the stove top had been shut off but the top is still hot to the touch, I thought this was great because there are time when we put stuff on the top of the stove and don't realize it's still hot.
Large capacity lower draw to store items in.
This stove cleans in a flash without having to remove all this coil burner and drip tray.
Also energy efficient.
