The KitchenAid KFDD500ESS is a range double oven with powerful capabilities. It provides a handful of settings and controls that you won't find on many similar products, such as a convection converter and the ability to add moisture to your cooking. It also includes warming capabilities and a delayed bake setting to ensure all your needs are met while cooking. This oven features an attractive stainless steel design with both knobs and touch controls.

This is a dual-fuel range, meaning it uses a gas cooktop and an electric oven. It features convection technology to help your food cook quickly and ensure it is evenly cooked throughout at the right temperature. This double oven provides three convection cooking modes: bake, broil and roast. Its five burners include an elongated center burner for long pans. The power of the burners ranges from 5,000 to 17,000 Btu, which lets you sear food at the highest setting or simply simmer it at the lower temperatures. The Kenmore double oven range has a stovetop with an even wider Btu range of 5,000 to 18,200.

The KitchenAid can convert traditional cooking settings to the convectional cook settings. This ensures that you don't undercook or overcook your food when using advanced convection cooking modes.

This double oven range provides 6.7 cubic feet of cooking space. The upper oven is smaller at 2.5 cubic feet, while the lower oven is 4.2 cubic feet. Within the lower oven, there are seven rack positions you can choose from.

The overall appearance of this double oven is sleek and attractive. It has a stainless steel finish, with both knobs and a touch display to control the various settings and temperature options.

The KitchenAid provides your standard settings and controls such as a timer, cancel and start. It also includes a delayed bake setting as well as a warm setting; you can set the oven to turn on at a specified time when you won't be there to turn it on manually, or to keep a finished dish warm without overcooking it. Additionally, there is a steam rack where you can add moisture back into your cooking to prevent dry and unsavory results.

This KitchenAid double oven has a standard one-year manufacturer warranty on the parts and labor. This is the average amount of time for double oven ranges. However, some others have warranties of two years or more.

The KitchenAid KFDD500ESS is a powerful range double oven with a sleek appearance and plenty of features to cook your meal quickly. It has high capacities for the ovens, five powerful burners, and a few additional settings and features.
