Good range, especially for the price. I've used all the main features (gas top, oven, and broiler) and they're way better than my old electric stove. Two weaknesses: (1) It would be nice if the light came on automatically when the door is open. (2) I feel like the cast iron top could be shorter to place pots and pans closer to the flame, but maybe they designed it that way for a reason.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
