The Maytag MGR6600FB is a sturdy, single, freestanding gas range oven that has powerful cooking features. Its decent 5.0 cubic feet capacity, quick-heating burners, and plenty of advanced features will manage all your cooking needs.

Maytag is well-known for durability, and the Maytag MGR6600FB has the best gas range warranty of all the models we reviewed. This gas range has a 5.0 cubic feet capacity, and larger ovens are available, but this should be sufficient for most homes.

It comes with Precision Control sensors to make sure you get evenly-cooked dishes each time.  Equipped with five, high-intensity burners, the simmer burner offers an adjustable 800 to 5,000 BTU to get the precise heat you need. The convenient, fifth, oval burner can easily fit oversized cookware, and provide better griddle results.

Maytag MGR6600FB: What you need to know 

Designed to be durable, the cooktop has cast-iron grates with sealed surface burners to minimize leaks and make cleaning a breeze. It’s easy to operate with front controls and an LED display and has a number of convenient settings including, delay bake, keep warm and sabbath mode.  

Maytag MGR6600FB comes in a choice of several attractive finishes - black, fingerprint-resistant stainless steel, and white. However, prices may differ depending on which color you go for. It has self-cleaning, saving you time on the elbow grease, and it comes with a handy, lower storage drawer. 

Perhaps the most notable feature is the long, 10-year parts warranty, which is the longest of all the models we have looked at. This covers the cooktop burners, oven burners, cast-iron metal grates, and cavity. 

Maytag MGR6600FB: Features 

Considering the Maytag MGR6600FB is more expensive than other models, it does have worthwhile features. Firstly, it comes with a Precision Control system which uses clever sensors to detect when your cakes or roasts are evenly baked. Its fully covered grate worktop with an oval burner is a winner, as well as the quick-lighting power burners. 

Features such as the variable broil are great for getting the best temperatures for those quick meals. And the Delay Bake setting allows you to simply program the time when you want your baking to start and finish. 

In addition, the self-clean option and lower storage drawer for all your baking essentials, offers convenience.

While it doesn't come with a third rack, the two racks can easily be adjusted to five positions to allow for more space.  Minor drawbacks are the oven doesn’t have a fan convection, and the door can be a little difficult to open and close. However, the door is reversible or may need adjusting.

Maytag MGR6600FB: User reviews 

Users of the Maytag MGR6600FB were impressed with its overall power and functionality. They were pleased with the instant heat/quick ignition and mentioned how delicious their roasts and other dishes turned out.

Most particularly liked the fifth, oval burner and the quality of the cast-iron, cooktop grates. Although one user mentioned the burners being very close together which limited how much space they had.

Other features praised include the broiler, the settings marked clearly and easy to use, and its sleek and stylish appearance. 

A minor complaint was the timer being low to hear, and not loud enough. While a few mentioned the door being a little heavy or difficult to open and close compared to their previous ovens. 

Should you buy the Maytag MGR6600FB?  

If you are looking for the best gas range warranty, this range comes out on top. Compared to the standard one-year warranty that covers most models, this has a ten-year manufacturer warranty for select parts. 

The Maytag MGR6600FB provides plenty of power and all the features you would need in a modern gas range. Convenient features such as the Precision Control system, fifth oval burner, and in-oven broiler functions are all handy for ensuring the perfect results. 

While it could benefit from fan convection and double oven, all the impressive settings make up for it. For large families or households who require more capacity, this probably won't be ideal. For a larger capacity gas range, read our GE JGSS86SPSS review.
