About - Maytag MER8674AS

The Maytag MER8674AS is part of the kitchen range test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric range models like the MER8674AS are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Cooktop high:
This reflects how quickly the most powerful element could raise a 6-liter (6 1/3 quart) pot of water from room temperature to a near boil.

Cooktop low:
This reflects the ability of the lowest power element to melt and hold chocolate without scorching it. We also set the most powerful element to its lowest setting to test its ability to hold a large pot of tomato sauce below a boil.

Baking:
This reflects the evenness of cookies and cakes in multi-rack baking tests.
