Maytag Appliances new ovens, ranges and cooktops

The new range of Maytag appliances unveiled last month at 2010 International Builders’ Show brings even more cooking power in your kitchen, helping you get it all done. Whether remodeling or replacing kitchen appliances, Maytag Appliances offer performance and flexibility for today’s needs. A kitchen is a cook’s fingerprint, each one is unique to the individual. Knowing every consumer is as unique as the next, Maytag created its latest generation of appliances with features to cater to individual preferences. For those who are building or remodeling, the new Maytag built-in cooktops provide more powerful burners and combination built-in ovens offer capacity, cooking performance and speed with both a microwave and an oven in one appliance. For those replacing a range, and with no desire to cut into the kitchen drywall, Maytag Gemini offers the option of a double oven in a freestanding range.


“To help home cooks accomplish more with their time, appliance makers have integrated features like convection and self-cleaning, ultimately increasing the performance of the appliance,” said Gail Bruce, senior brand manager, Maytag kitchen products. “Also, Maytag owners value the ease-of-use, flexibility and dependability of their appliances. Features like the 15,000 BTU Power Cook burner and 6.7 cu. ft. of dual oven capacity allow them to get more done.”

Renovate the Kitchen and Increase Your Cooking Power

Newly designed electric and gas cooktops combine a variety of elements and burners that go from a full-power to a warm setting, offering numerous configurations to suit every consumer.


The latest in gas 36″ built-in cooktops (MGC8636WS) offer two 12,000 BTU burners to provide high-heat options for quicker, more consistent cooking. Additionally, the cooktop features one 15,000 BTU Power Cook Griddle burner which is perfect for cooking food like pancakes and accommodates longer cookware for more cooking options.


The new electric 30″ (MEC7630W) and 36″ (MEC7636W) built-in cooktops feature a smooth top SCHOTT CERAN glass-electric surface for easy cleaning which also is shatter resistant. Both offer a Triple-Choice radiant element to provide 12″, 9″ and 6″ of cooking space in one location. This provides flexibility whether the last dish is chocolate sauce or pork chops. Additionally, the 10″ 3,200 watt Speed Heat element is the most powerful available and ideal for faster boiling and better searing.



New built-in ovens from Maytag Appliances offer Even Air true convection (MEW7630WDS), which uses a third, high-wattage element along with a fan to circulate heated air throughout the oven to deliver consistent temperatures for even browning and faster cooking results. A nice addition is the Convection Conversion option that automatically converts standard recipe time and temperature to the appropriate convection time and temperature, for peace of mind even when cooking a long-time favorite recipe.


Upgrade to a double oven without tearing down the walls

As consumers continue to cook more meals at home, many may like to have the flexibility of a double oven to cook multiple dishes at differing temperatures, but may not have the remodeling budget for a built-in double oven. The newest generation of the Maytag Gemini (MET8885WS) offers the industry’s largest available double oven capacity in an electric range. Together the two oven spaces in one unit create 6.7 cu. ft. of capacity, ideal for cooking large meals in a short amount of time.

Maytag Appliances also want to help the cook save on clean up time, Maytag has integrated dishwasher-safe grates and knobs on cooktops, adjustable self-cleaning oven levels and hidden bake elements for easy oven spill cleanup into many of its models.
