Pros: nice burners. nice infra-red broiler.
Cons: bad service from adco! beware!
"We bought 30" NRG 3001. It came with packaging in perfect condition. The stove lighter worked for a few times then burned out. Then we noticed the enamel had black chipped off places. We sent photos to ADCO Service company in charge of warranty. They just said it looks like shipping damages - and refused to honor the warranty. We kept insisting that the shipping was perfect and that the damage was not caused in shipping. They finally sent a guy out to examine the range. After that the enamel kept flaking off in new places. They have us sending more photos to prove it. Still no word on if they will honor the warranty."

Great Range
Posted:1/17/10
Pros: cook top, great looking, solid, simple to use
Cons: lack of oven features, oven racks hard to pull out.
"The range is very handsome. Cooktop is out of this world. Very nice control and does something only Viking claims, melts chocolate chips on paper plates without burning the plate! My aunt's Viking left a dark ring when she did it. My NXR didn't. Oven racks are a bit hard to pull out. Hoping this goes away with use. Also, oven lacks a few "nice" features that you know going into it, like a beeper when at temperature, but there is an oven light that goes out with the burner. Also have to give up self cleaning, but I only used it in my last stove twice in 6 years. Haven't verified the oven temperature is accurate, but will one of these days.
Something that happened to me is the feet insert came out and left a ring dent in my hardwood floor. Was able to find them without a problem and inserted them again. Would recommend you tape them in place before moving off the pallet.
Had a burner knob stick when pushed it (ignition kept clicking). Took a slight trim adjustment. Pull knob off. There's two screws to loosen and move the trim piece as needed. Retighten and replace the knob. No problem.
If you're looking for a professional stove, but can't justify the $4k for a known brand, NXR is your baby. Remember you will give up some oven features, but you know that ahead of time."

Make room for the new range in town!

Pros: 4 15k burners restaurant quality
"This oven has exceeded my expectations. Set-up and installing was very easy. Did it myself! Range is built very solid and heavy! Knobs, grates, oven racks and door feel very substantial when turning, pulling, opening. I've owned this range for 6-7 months and I'm pleased with every use. One of many selling points are the 4 15k burners. You can't get that on GE Cafe, DCS, Viking, etc. Next the convection... sweet!!! Perfect for pizza! 3yrs ago I purchased a mid-priced whrilpool, self cleaning and electronic display. Also, a 12k, 2- 10k, 5k simmer burner. The only burner we used was the 12k! Then the electronic display broke and suddenly no oven! This time, I was going to pay more for better quality. Had to swallow hard at the prices for DCS, Viking, Wolf, but... was willing... Did a search and found NXR. Who? Took a gamble and won! When friends come over (who own DCS, Wolf, etc.) they can't believe what I got for what I paid. They are most impressed with the FOUR 15k burners, that the GE cafe' series doesn't have and it's $3k. Face it, some people chase name brands with out fully looking under the hood! So, lesson here buy up for value/quality, not name brand alone."

Initial Impression
Posted:10/9/08
Pros: price, looks, build quality, high power burners
Cons: it would be nice to have full width grates
"This oven replaced a $1700 Amana range. For a very small increase in price I got a much nicer range. The amana range was about half the weight of the new NXR range. If weight is any indication of quality, this will last a long time! I have found the oven to be about 50 degrees below the set point in actual temperature, though. But this is easily remedied by the infinately adjustable knob. The look of the appliance is top notch. The only complaint here is this: I would have prefered full width grates. The legs are very easily adjustable and stout. You'll need very sturdy legs to support the 310 lbs of this stove! 4 15.5k burners is a nice thing to have, even too much for most folks, I think. Dual ring burners make adjustability easy and slick. Knobs on the front of the range are actual metal, not just plastic colored like metal. Hook up and install was simple, and the blue interior sets everything off nicely. I also enjoy the convection fan which can be activated independantly from the heating element- this can be used to aid defrosting of frozen meats, etc..
All in all, my first impressions are very good. I will report back after I have more time with the range
