The Whirlpool brand is among the best known for major household appliances in the United States today. As an industry leader, consumers will find no shortage of options for stove design, capacity, and installation. Whirlpool offers three main types of ranges: electric, gas, and combination gas/electric known as duel fuel. Their products offer a wide range of choices in performance, capacity, flexibility, and energy efficiency.
Consumers can select from performance features in stoves, ovens, and cooktops that include heat variations and smart controls, heat distribution systems, custom broilers, simmer and high-heat burners, convection ovens, warming features, display features, and safety features. While most consumers opt for capacities averaging between 3.30 to 5.0 cubic feet, Whirlpool offers a line of increased capacity ovens. In addition, their designs allow for changes in the interior configuration of the oven to accommodate individual cooking needs, and allow for maximum use.
Maintenance and Durability
All Whirlpool appliances undergo extensive testing, and because Whirlpool is a global manufacturer, owners can expect to find parts and repair service easily and inexpensively if and when they are needed. Whirlpool ovens come with standard self-cleaning options, and offer other easy maintenance features such as sealed burners, glass or porcelain backguards, and seamless edges to prevent spills and leaks.
At a minimum, every Whirlpool appliance carries a one-year limited warranty. Depending on the model and retailer, more coverage may be offered. For warranty help in the United States, call 1-800-253-1301. In Canada, call 1-800-807-6777.
