Entry-level range, probably good enough for most
This range was in my home when I bought it. I was thrilled to have a brand-new range, as I'm an avid cook and this was my first home. For a while, that was enough.
Within about six months, one of the burners stopped igniting easily. It required from five to 10 seconds of tick-tick-ticking before it would finally spark and ignite with a scary FLOOM.
Heating large pans for saute or browning on this stove is not terribly consistent. I was cooking chicken the other night and the thigh on one side had an internal temp that was 12 degrees higher than the thigh on the other side of the pan.
The stove works reasonably well. I'm an artisan baker and baked two loaves of blue-ribbon bread in the stove. However, it's not very big and again, sometimes the temperature is inconsistent.
One of the things I really don't care for with the range is that the stainless steel is basically a big metal sticker over basic black enamel. The stainless part gets gunk trapped behind it when you clean and it sometimes buckles and bends and just generally looks cheap.
Overall, for the money, this is not a bad range for most home cooks. The quick boil burner is great for big pots of pasta, and the low simmer one is good for keeping things warm. But if you are more of a hobbyist who wants that extra consistency, larger oven capacity, and better quality materials, I'd recommend spending a bit more and getting something a little more robust.

I am very happy with this Frigidaire range. It goes well with the other black/stainless appliances in my kitchen and is easy to keep clean and looking good. I like the auto-ignition burners; they are easy to get to the desired setting. I also like the beep when the oven has preheated.

Review of Range
This was only my second major appliance purchase I have made. I shopped around days prior to me finding the Fridgidaire Freestanding Gas Range Model # FFGF3051LS. It is absolutely wonderful. Such a cinch to clean, beautiful exterior and very high quality without me going broke.
