An overpriced and under-performing dual oven packed with features.

Introduction

For around $2000 (MSRP $2150), you should expect great things from this range. The KitchenAid KGRS505XSS has all the features one expects and all the trimmings of the stainless steel style, but it lacks the chops we'd like to see in something this expensive.

It's not a model without some pros; we found the quick preheat times impressive, and didn't have too much criticism for the conventional oven temperature variance. But we did see weakness almost everywhere else: the underpowered rangetop, the abject convection oven, the convoluted control panel, and the chill the oven seemed to be running.

Since many other ranges that we've tested have cost less and performed better, we can't recommend this KitchenAid.
