KitchenAid Architect Series II KGRS308BSS Gas Range Review

Awesome rangetop and oven performance.



With a price tag of $1,650 (MSRP $1,799) a user expects the KitchenAid Architect Series II KGRS308BSS to have great performance, lots of features, and an elegant look. After all, a user simply looking for good performance can often settle with something costing hundreds of dollars less.

While we can't objectively tell you if this stainless steel oven is beautiful, we can tell you that it is a fantastic performer, ready for whatever culinary task you have to throw at it, onto it, or into it. The exceptional gas rangetop performed quite well, acing our boiling test and the oven kept temperatures close to the target for even cooking.

With features including convection mode, a griddle, and the "AquaLift" self-cleaning method, this oven has a lot with which to impress the user.
