LAS VEGAS, Jan. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- It's been nearly 50 years since self-cleaning ovens were introduced, and it's time for something new. Maytag brand is revolutionizing how ovens can be cleaned with the introduction of AquaLift™ self-clean technology. Maytag brand's latest line of freestanding ranges offer consumers an innovation to self-clean the oven interior with an exclusive enamel oven coating, low heat and water to release baked-on spills in less than one hour.

At a generous capacity of up to 6.2 cubic feet(1) Maytag® ranges have an industry-leading capacity(2) and are the first to offer AquaLift™ self-clean technology. Additional performance features combine the power of the bake and broil burners, convection fan and power vents to preheat in 8 minutes.(3)

The ranges have been engineered with an exclusive enamel oven coating that activates with water and low heat, allowing moisture to release tough baked-on messes. In less than an hour, the oven is ready for a final wipe-down to remove food and debris, with no odor or extreme heat like traditional high-temperature self-clean ovens.  

"Whether it's the lasagna that bubbled over or the pie filling that dripped, oven spills happen to all of us. But thanks to AquaLift™ self-clean technology, you can now get your oven clean without the long wait, high heat or odors associated with a traditional self-clean," said Kate Davidson, senior brand manager, Maytag brand.

The cooktop offers flexible element sizes and comes in three different power options: gas, electric and induction. The induction Power Center cooktop features an 11 inch 3,700-watt Speed Heat™ element that boils 40 percent faster(4), a 9 inch 3,200-watt induction element and two 6 inch 1,800-watt elements, providing the flexibility and power you need to cook any dish.

A 10 year limited parts warranty is offered on gas, electric and induction models for long-lasting performance and years of dependable cooking. The limited parts warranty includes the oven elements and cooktop, including ceramic glass, on electric and induction models and the cast-iron grates, cooktop and oven burners on gas models.(5) The ranges are designed, engineered and assembled with pride in Tulsa, Okla.

Maytag® ranges are available at retailers nationwide and online. Models from the line will start with an MSRP of $799 each. Please visit for more information on AquaLift™ self-clean technology.
