Love it!! Was going to do a full size due to the cost of a smaller-sized oven. So glad I found this cute little oven.

We had been looking for a 24-inch good quality range. There are a lot of ugly models offered in this size range, but this is the exception for the price. The 24-inch range market is limited and expensive. This range was better than expected. I was leery to order a major appliance on the web, but I know Amazon has excellent customer service and with Prime, there is little worry.

Our kitchen is getting a makeover, not remodel, so I did not want to replace the cabinets to allow for a larger stove. This range was ordered on Thursday night and arrived Saturday morning via FedEx. It was in perfect condition. The instructions, although you can tell they are written by someone that does not have English mastered, were OK, and the diagrams were easy to understand. The installation was easy.

The range offers a good design with the sealed burners and heavy grates. With the hefty grates and heavy stainless top, you can use large pans with more than enough room even though it’s a smaller stove. The stainless steel offers an upgraded look, and the glass oven door is easy to wipe down, remove it for a thorough easy cleaning. The waist-high broiler is so much easier than stooping down to pull out a drawer. The storage drawer in this model is an excellent place to keep the included broiler pan. I recommend getting the silicon oven liners for the bottom of the oven for easy clean up if a spillover happens. Anything to make cleanup easier is welcomed.

For the price and the quality of this unit, I cannot recommend it enough for the limited 24-inch market.

We got this stove for our tiny home. Delivery was quick, about two weeks; it was delivered just in time for Thanksgiving. Our only complaint is that it took forever to find the correct size screwdriver to adjust the gas setting to propane (it requires a 3/32 x 3.5″ flathead screwdriver). Other than that, the stove works great. It’s a little tough to regulate oven temperature. You’ve got to keep an eye on it to make sure it stays at the proper temperature. So far, a 100lb propane tank (you can also connect it to a 25 lb tank) has lasted two months, and it’s not empty yet. We use the stove every day to perk coffee, and to cook dinner at least; most days we cook breakfast and heat water for other things as well.

The oven works and bakes perfect! Very nice for a small kitchen.

I was nervous about having an appliance shipped to me, but it came very well packaged and in perfect condition. I think it maybe took me about a half hour just to unpack it! It seems very well made. I had to convert it to LP gas and now that I’ve done that the next one will go faster. Changing the top injectors was easy using a 7mm socket with an extension. Just wobble up a piece of masking tape into the socket and the injector will stick to it when you do the small burner. Once you master taking off the oven door I recommend changing the top broiler burner first and then do the lower oven burner. The top burner is easier to remove and the lower oven burner might come off easier from what you’ll learn on the other one. I had trouble putting the oven door back on till I finally realized you put it back on, open it all the way, and then push down on it to enable you to undo those little clips. All in all I’m very happy with this little stove.

We like this oven and have been using it for 8 months now. Delivery was fast and easy; the contractor had no problems installing it but TBH anyone could do it following the instructions (we have natural gas, not propane).


  • Nice size, easy to clean, burners work well.
  • Oven light is bright, timer is a useful addition.


  • Oven / broiler can sometimes take a while to ignite; have to hold down the knob for multiple sparks and verify that it lights.
  • 3 of the knobs have had the plastic that holds them on the metal shaft shatter, under what I’d consider normal use. Some can be stuck back on, one is beyond repair. I have the part #, but need to figure out if anyone even sells replacement knobs!

Very handsome unit. Safety features (read: clicking) to make you aware of flowing gas are annoying but all new ranges do that, I think. This range seems to have all the same features as any full-size top of the line gas range. It feels sturdy. The unit was missing a screw for the railing of a bottom drawer. Rats. I called Amazon and they said they couldn’t help with the screw but would gladly take the range back. For a twenty-cent screw?? Nope. However, they insisted on extending my Prime when I declined a discount. The rep’s idea, not mine. Then I called Avanti. Within two minutes they took my shipping info and said they’d send out a whole new drawer assembly because they don’t carry the screw. All in all, this speaks awfully well of both Amazon and Avanti. I hope this was helpful.

If you turn a burner’s valve on you will receive gas! Even if you don’t light the burner with the ignitor or a match, you will receive gas. Just be smart. It fits in my tiny kitchen, and in years, it’s worked like a champ. I couldn’t be happier with this buy. I especially like the top burner broiler, just like its bigger brother’s broilers. And it’s ready for propane too. This is a buy and hold recommendation.

Crappiest Ever! This product looks nice on the screen but it is really cheap. The packaging was very good but the metal inside is very thin and bends easily. I bought this for an emergency replacement. I have had it for 3 months or so, and I Hate It!!! The stove top grates are too small and they don’t hold a fry pan safely. The burners are too close together for a full stove with a mix of pots and pans. My old 20-inch unit seemed to have more usable space with bigger grates. It seems they turned a 20-inch unit sideways to get a 24-inch wide and built metal panels in the back that keep it off the wall 3 to 4 inches. I would like to return it to the manufacturer… AT HIGH SPEED…ANALLY! It arrived damaged but I got most of my money back. I’m still going to replace it! I really hate it! I had the conversion done to propane orifices and regulator pressures, and the BTU ratings must be overly done because the thing doesn’t bake at more than 350F. The controls for top burners have little range; low is not low enough, and high is not high enough. I wish I had my old open burner stove back… SOOO much a better stove and oven but the open burners collect food and grease underneath. If you want sealed burners be ready to spend a lot more. Forget this one! Junk!

Very happy with this stove. We converted to propane and installed it in our RV. The oven cooks very evenly, and the unit doesn’t heat up the inside of the RV like the camper stove it replaced. Do wish that it had an indicator to tell you when the oven is heated to the desired temperature.

Review by: Paul Fruehauf Rating: 4.0 out of 5 stars Reviewed in the United States on December 9, 2016 Size: 24″Color: Stainless SteelVerified Purchase

Works ok. Conversion to propane was difficult. The directions were vague, and the illustrations were not helpful. It took a lot of guesswork and cursing. The rear right natural gas burner nozzle would not come off, sealed tight. I decided to just keep the gas nozzle in position, rather than switching to the propane nozzle. Other than the conversion nightmare, the stove works well and looks good.

I was building a tiny house and chose this range because it looked so good and was the perfect size. The first one shipped to me had a dented side. So I ordered another which arrived with the glass door shattered. I decided to live with the first one. The second one was never picked up. I installed the range which looked great and the dented side was hidden anyway. The last project was running a gas line to the range. It was done and the orifices were changed as instructed to handle propane. Even with the propane reaching to the regulator, I cannot get fire at the burners or the oven. I will need someone with more knowledge to take care of this issue. It’s just another expense and hassle. It’s pretty, though! It would help if it would cook.

Good price, steel top is easy to clean, easy to connect, needed a small range. Plastic knobs and oven door a little wimpy, but functional. It was hard for me to level against a wall and cabinet, but I don’t know if any range could make this easy.

Looks like it was dropped from the truck from 10 feet !!!!! Both sides buckled out, bottom braces bent up like a tee tee, was leaning to one side like it would fall over, and the box was perfect! Real nice, so it happens I’m pretty good at fixing stuff, got 5 hours into fixing the body and don’t even know if it works, but other than that, it is what I am looking for.

Review by: K. Duke Rating: 2.0 out of 5 stars Reviewed in the United States on November 28, 2016 Size: 20″Color: Stainless SteelVerified Purchase

Didn’t meet expectations. First, it’s only 19″ wide not 20″, so there’s a gap on the sides where we had our old oven. And our pizza stone no longer fits inside. Second, the product arrived with dents on both sides, and the oven door was dented too. We had to bend the door back to open it, but when the oven gets hot it sticks pretty bad. Third, the grates on top of the stove were warped so we had to bend those back too. But as expected they aren’t perfect, so anything set on top wobbles. Lastly, the oven knob acts like an ignitor which you have to press, hold and turn waiting for it to ignite and turn on. That’s slightly annoying as it can take 5-10 seconds of holding and waiting. However, it was a good price and looks pretty.

This stove fits perfectly in our converted school bus. We never could get the electric ignite to work, so we just use a match every time we cook. Great stove for small spaces. No complaints, I am sure the ignite switch issue is user error.
