Bottom line

The Maytag CWG3100AA is a 24-inch single gas wall oven with a separate broiling compartment. It's very basic, lacking convenience features such as convection, keep-warm and Sabbath mode. However, owners say it performs very well and is easy to use. It's also a great fit for small kitchens but doesn't have enough capacity

Performance

Durable performer. The Maytag CWG3100AA is a simple model, but it performs well both baking and broiling. Reviewers say it heats up quickly, bakes evenly and is easy to use. The wall oven has a lower broiling compartment that works just as well, according to users. Several complain, however, that the air vent is poorly placed. It blows very hot air over the electronic touchpad -- making it difficult to use the controls while the oven is in use. Many owners say this oven is well-built and claim to have owned it for several years.

Capacity/size

Best for smaller jobs. Several users say they purchased the Maytag CWG3100AA because it was the only one that would fit into their existing 24-inch cutout. While the wall oven fits perfectly, capacity-wise it is on the small side. Some complain that their larger baking pans will not fit. Others say it fits their needs perfectly but isn't the best option for heavy entertaining or large families. The CWG3100AA has a total capacity of four cubic feet -- 2.7 in the oven and 1.3 in the broiler. It has four rack guides and two racks in the upper oven, and two rack positions in the broiler.

Features

Bare bones. The Maytag CWG3100AA is a bare bones gas wall oven. It's sparse on features, but owners say that it gets the job done and is easy to use. The oven has an electronic touchpad, an electronic clock with a timer and an oven light switch. It has both baking and broiling modes and a delay-start option, but it lacks convection, keep-warm and Sabbath modes. It's available in white, black and stainless steel (for an additional $200) and has a one-year warranty.
