Maytag's Gemini Range is a two-oven range offering consumers convenience and efficiency. Used separately or together, the range's twin ovens help provide meal management with less stress.

The range allows you to cook more than one dish at a time at different temperatures. This helps gets the entire meal on the table at once. A main dish can cook in one oven while side dishes cook in the other.

The unit has a total of 5.2 cubic feet of cooking space. This includes 1.2 cubic feet of space in the self-cleaning upper oven and 4.0 cubic feet of space in the self-cleaning lower oven.

Despite the extra oven space the Gemini is designed to fit into the same space as a standard range, so no remodeling is needed. The unit is:

  • 29-7/8 inches wide
  • 46-3/4 inches high
  • 27-1/4 inches deep

    Even more versatility can be gained with the use of Maytag's optional Create-A-Space™ half-rack in lower oven, to help you cook even more items at once.

    The ranges control functions include delay-start so you can start baking when you're not home. The electronic keypad oven controls have scrolling prompts. There is also an electronic clock with timer and separate upper and lower oven controls. The Auto Set pad allows you to set popular functions with the touch of a button.

    The cooktop has a warming center for keeping foods warm. The Ceran® smooth glass-ceramic surface and the seamless upswept drip-retainer cooktop design make cleaning easier. The cooktop has a hot-surface indicator light and Insta-Heat™ radiant elements, offering visual heat response in about 3 seconds.

    The upper oven is designed to preheat fast, keep food warm, and toast foods. It is said to be ideal for everyday use.

    The oven has a convection option to provide better baking and roasting, even when using multiple racks. Convection can reduce roasting times by as much as 30 percent and reduce baking temperature by as much as 25 degrees.
