I like two oven feature - one can used to heat up a pizza fast. Used the bottom one to roast whole chickens - they came out real nice. Powerful burners and griddle helps to make a quick sub. Very nice display.

My new favorite stove!
I have owned this for just over a month and I am very satisfied with the features and performance. My prior stove had an infrared broiler (which I loved), a single oven and 3 standard burners and one high output burner.
Starting at the top of the stove. The super burner really gets a pot of water boiling very quickly and returns the boil very fast when adding something to the pot. The other various size burners work very well and the range of adjustment for the flame on all burners is fantastic. I have not used the fish burner yet, but expect it to work very well considering how well everything else works.
The electronic controls are very easy to use and I love how I now have two timers. The vent coming out of the back front surface at the top for the oven is very well designed and doesn't get too hot. The 3-grate design provides a nice even surface to move pans around when cooking and it provides a very stable surface for very small pots.
The broiler works very well and just like my previous IR broiler, my vented exhaust fan does the job when broiling. With 3 levels of broiling intensity, the range of things to cook with it is awesome. Asparagus at 2:40 on each side comes out just like on the grill! Meats are cooked and juicy. And just like my old broiler I have to make sure I use a good grilling pan and always clean after use to avoid flareups/excessive smoking when used the next time.
The heating up of the upper and lower ovens are very quick:
Upper at 350 (bake)= 6 min
Lower at 350 (bake)=8 min
Lower at 350 (convection)=6 min, 20 sec.
There doesn't seem to be too much loss of heat from the vent into the kitchen (broiling, upper/lower oven) compared to my old range. My kitchen stays nice and cool every time I have used it.
Being my first convection oven, I am thrilled to death with its performance. Besides using less gas because it cooks at a lower temperature, the quality of what is cooked is enjoyed by everyone. My brownies are fantastic, baked potatoes are cooked thoroughly yet still not dried out and the 3 settings for different styles of pizza's makes them taste really good.
Now owning a 2 oven unit, the real treat/surprise was getting frozen fries going in the lower oven and then throwing in burgers in the top and they both coming out at the same time. Holiday dinners and other occasions will be so much easier to cook with the versatility of a two oven unit/IR broiler; let alone a very functional stove top.
I really researched what is out there on-line and also went to a couple of retailers as I reluctantly had to replace my 18 year old range that I loved (electronics no longer available for the repair). This LG unit has certainly exceeded my expectations. Dollar for dollar, the same features on comparable units are much more expensive.
Having used it for almost a month and cooked most of what I had cooked with my old stove, everyone in the family thinks my food tastes as good, if not better. Like I said, "my new favorite stove!"
The manuals are very informative and the information on the LG website has really helped my make the most out of it.

I like the stove
I like all features of stove. It cooks very quick. I have used all features. Even the simmer burner is fast. If you start on front burner,and have to simmer, you have to wait, and cool down a boiling pot,before you simmer. I have nothing bad to said about this stove.
