The Maytag MEW7530A is a basic but reliable single electric wall oven. It has a large capacity and some convenient features like a self-cleaning mode. The wall oven also has a lengthy warranty of 10 years, while its competitors offer just one year. A number of owners say it's a good fit to their standard available space. Others complain of a noisy fan and long preheat cycle.
Allow extra time for preheating. In one professional test, the Maytag MEW7530A is rated "Very Good" for baking and "Excellent" for broiling. Furthermore, editors say it's the least expensive of the lot, yet it "outperformed wall ovens that cost two to three times as much." Users at HomeDepot.com are likewise pleased with the oven. Most say it's easy to use and has accurate temperatures. Some complain that it takes a long time to preheat -- up to 20 minutes -- and that the cooling fan is noisy, which is a common complaint among wall ovens.
Extra-large. Reviewers praise the large five-cubic-foot capacity of the Maytag MEW7530A, which allows them to cook large items. It has six rack guides and comes with two racks.
Self-cleaning mode works flawlessly. Reviewers say the Maytag MEW7530A is easy to keep clean, thanks in part to a hidden bake element and a self-cleaning mode. Testers in one professional review say the self-cleaning mode "aced" their tough tests. The oven also features an electronic clock with timer and a control-lockout feature. It's available in black, white and stainless steel, and it comes with a 10-year warranty. The wall oven has several cooking modes, including baking and broiling as well as Sabbath mode, delay-start and keep-warm settings. It does not have a convection setting.
