The Maytag Gemini Double Oven offers many advantages. With a large capacity and features like smooth glass-ceramic cooking surfaces with electric triple-choice elements that can be programmed to quickly heat up, this double oven makes meal prep quick and efficient. In the lower oven is true convection for more even baking and roasting as well as speed preheat that gets it up to temperature faster than traditional models.
This range was designed and assembled in the United States and comes backed by a 10-year limited parts warranty. Featuring heavy-duty components made of stainless steel handles and knobs designed to withstand daily use, its powerful 16,000 BTU Power burner can quickly sear steaks while its EvenAir(tm) true convection system ensures even cooking for delicious, crispy results every time. Providing ample cooking capacity with two separate ovens offering an impressive 6.7 total cu.ft. total capacity this versatile range offers everything from snacks to dinner parties at once!
One of the great features of this double oven range is how user-friendly it is. The display panel is intuitive and easily displays all essential settings on an easy-to-read digital display, and pre-set cooking options save both time and effort in the kitchen. Furthermore, cleaning this ceramic glass cooktop is simple thanks to a smudge-proof coating - you may never want another non-stick cooktop again!
Another amazing feature of this double oven is its self-cleaning feature, with steam clean functionality to make cleaning up a breeze. Additionally, there's also a delay bake and preheat function that lets you cook while doing other things - perfect for people who love cooking but don't necessarily want to be constantly watching their food being prepared! This makes cooking fun without being tied down by watching every step.
While the Maytag Gemini Double Oven offers some useful features, we found it lacking others expected in its price range. For instance, it took 13 minutes and 31 seconds on average to bring water up to boiling point - this time frame is significantly slower than most electric ranges we tested; only LG LRE3027ST ($1,400) and Samsung NE58H9970WS (EUR3,699) had poorer results in our tests.
The Gemini range also contains some oddities, including an awkward mix of stainless-steel and plastic accent pieces, limited flexibility when it comes to oven configuration, no broiler pan accessory or special sliding lower rack options, and an outdated display panel using plus/minus buttons instead of number pads for setting times and temperatures. While not bad overall, we have seen similar models with more advanced features - for instance the midpriced Samsung NX58F5700 offers a more responsive and intuitive display panel than this Gemini option.
