The Whirlpool WGG555SOB is a double oven range that offers 6 cubic feet of space. It is a gas-range model that includes thermal cooking technology, three oven racks and a handful of cooking features. However, it does not offer convection cooking.
The upper oven on this model is the smaller one, with 2.1 cubic feet of cooking space, while the lower oven boasts a large 3.9 cubic feet. The oven uses thermal technology, but no convection modes, which tend to cook food more evenly and quickly. This Whirlpool model has a unique temperature management system. Built-in sensors constantly monitor your oven's temperature to ensure it is the exact temperature you need it to quickly cook that type of food.
There are four burners on the cooktop, rather than the standard five. The burners range in power from 5,000 Btu to 15,000 Btu. The widest power ranges reach up to 20,000 Btu for searing food, but 15,000 Btu is still very hot.
There are both knobs and a touch control pad on this gas-range double oven. The touchpad is located on the back panel of the oven, and it controls the temperature, time and settings of the two ovens. The front knobs control the four burners on the cooktop. To enhance the design, this model is available in three different colors: stainless steel, white and black. Not many double ovens offer color options.The Verona double oven range is an exception. It has even more color options, five total: stainless steel, white, matte black, antique white and burgundy.
Numerous settings and features are available on this double oven range. It has delayed bake, warming and self-cleaning settings. You can set the oven to start at a later time so you don't have to turn it on manually then, to keep food warm without cooking it further, and to clean itself of food particles using high heat. It also provides a Sabbath mode so that you can keep the oven on for a long time without it automatically turning off. However, there is no meat temperature probe, which would be a helpful complement to the temperature management system.
There is a one-year parts and labor manufacturer warranty on this appliance. This is the average length of time these oven ranges are covered under warranty, though some are covered for two years or longer.
The Whirlpool WGG555SOB provides 6 cubic feet of cooking space, as well as three color options to match your kitchen. Although it does not provide the standard five burners or convection technology, it has a handful of convenience features and settings.
