Maytag Met8720ds Review: Two Ovens For The Price Of One

Maytag’s double-oven electric range is pretty “meh.”

She is a board member of the Louisville chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. When Megan isn’t writing, she’s planning far-flung adventures.

We’ve reviewed our fair share of midprice ranges. Some models emphasize style over substance others look utilitarian but shine when it comes to performance . And then there’s a small subset of above-average units that manage to strike a nice balance between eye-catching design and impressive cooking results .

The Bad

The Bottom Line

The $1,600 Maytag Gemini MET8720DS may offer two ovens for the price of one, but it doesn’t fit into any of these categories. It suffers from inconsistent performance, few advanced features, an unresponsive display panel without a number pad, and a mishmash of stainless steel and cheap-looking plasticky accent pieces.

It isn’t exactly a bad range, but you can find something better for roughly the same cost.

Large Burner Boil Test

Note:

The large burner boil test measures how long it takes for a 5-quart pot full of water to reach a rolling boil. This test utilizes the most powerful burner on the cooktop, which is likely the burner you’d turn to for cooking pasta.

The Gemini did particularly well here, finishing the task in just 9 minutes and 42 seconds. Samsung’s $3,700 induction NE58H9970WS took the shortest amount of time and its $2,300 electric NE58F9710WS took the longest amount of time .

Small Burner Boil Test

Shop Maytag Gemini 30

Note:

In stark contrast to its solid large burner boil results, Maytag’s MET8720DS did not perform very well on the small burner. It took an average of 13 minutes and 31 seconds to reach a rolling boil. That would be considered pretty darn good if we were talking about a gas cooktop, but the electric models tend to reach the boiling point faster. Only the $1,400 LG LRE3027ST scored worse than the Gemini at over 15 minutes the $3,699 Samsung NE58H9970WS scored the best at less than 6 minutes.

Getting To The Good Stuff

Since the double oven is the main feature of this range, I decided to kick off testing with a frozen pizza in the smaller top oven and a whole-roasted chicken in the larger bottom one. I’ll get to the chicken in a minute, but for now, let’s all just take a moment to appreciate the cheesy goodness that’s happening in the picture above.

You really can’t go wrong with pizza. It’s such a staple of the American diet that it would be irresponsible not to include it in this round of testing. That’s especially true since the 2.5-cubic-foot upper oven is perfectly sized for a single rack — of anything really — but I immediately thought of frozen pizza.

The instructions say to preheat the over to 400 degrees and to cook it for 22 to 26 minutes. Fortunately, this oven handled the DiGiorno “Italian Style Favorites” pizza without complaint, finishing the pizza within the allotted timeframe. It was a welcome and tasty introduction to the Maytag Gemini.

In addition to the simultaneous food tests, I also calculated how long the upper and lower ovens each took to reach 350 degrees in traditional bake mode. As you would expect, the upper oven reached 350 degrees in less time — 11 minutes and 51 seconds — while the lower oven took 13 minutes and 33 seconds. This isn’t a huge difference, but there’s a definite time and energy benefit to sticking with the top oven for single-rack cooking.
