Great oven for value!
This oven overall has been a joy to use. Like the fact that it auto converts my recipes to be able to cook convection, yet I still have the capability to cook in the traditional way (using bake or roast cycle). Also enjoy the various "bells and whistles" such as the chime mechanism when oven is preheated. Only downside is--the control knobs are somewhat flimsy...could easily see where the knobs could break off under heavy use. Overall though, would definitely recommend. Great value for what you get!

the oven looks great and professional. heats up quickly and bakes to perfection. my only problem is that even salt shows up on the stove top, I really have to wipe it off after each use, which is okay I guess. The burners are very efficient also. I actually love my new range.

Elegant and Professional!
This range has been great I love the convection heat up time and the alert that chimes with the light that flash on and off. The griddle that come with it is a really cool accessory that is in the box with it. Nice and heavy duty grates on teh top not the cheap metal one. defibnately a great unit that gives that professinal feel while using it. The bread rising feature is great as well we use taht everyday.

Buy the extended warranty
We've had this appliance for one year this month and were very pleased with it like all the LG appliances we bought when we had our kitchen redone a year ago. Then things went very bad very quickly. A week ago we used the self clean cycle and the next time we used the stove I noticed that several of the burner knobs had the finish distorted on the bottom portion, apparently from the heat of the cleaning cycle exiting the door vent directly below the knobs. Our neighbors have the exact same range and we mentioned this to them when we had them to dinner and they said theirs had done the same thing. They also mentioned that the ceramic coating inside their oven had cracked. I checked ours and sure enough there were cracks in the bottom of the oven liner.
I had noticed also that after using the stove for several months that the burner controls we're getting loose and wobbly and felt like something you'd find on a low end appliance. So it seems like this range has all the surface appearance and features that you pay for but with very little use shows some very disturbing signs of poor build quality.
The serviceman is coming tomorrow so I'll update you after this visit.
