Comparisons of KitchenAid and Maytag ranges differ based on which specific models are being contrasted and which review of ranges is consulted. A Consumer Search comparison, for example, rates the KitchenAid KDRS505XSS as the best dual-fuel range, while Top Ten Reviews gave the top rank to the Maytag MER8600.
In the Top Ten Reviews comparison, the Maytag model received a comprehensive score of 9.8 out of 10 points, with top marks for range design, stove top features, oven features, user conveniences, warranty and customer support. The same review failed to highlight any KitchenAid models in its top ten rankings.
The Consumer Search review, which chose a top model from four categories, lauded the KitchenAid dual-fuel range for its double-oven, high-end features and effective self-cleaning cycle. The KDRS505XSS, which has a gas-powered cooktop and electric oven with convection mode, reviewed well for delivering even and consistent heat. No Maytag models were mentioned in comparison in the review.
