Question about Maytag MGR4452BDW / MGR4452BDQ / MGR4452BDB Gas Kitchen Range
Have a brand new Maytag MGR4452BDW. THe burner tops are all one piece with the burners (unlike most ranges where you can lift them off and clean them in the sink.) It's already tough get get food spills cleaned... and I suspect down the line the burner holes will get clogged.
Any opinion or experience about this? I could still return it and get another brand with removable burners.
Edrenckh is right: all burners do twist and pull up and out, HOWEVER, they are NOT free but rather tethered by two wires each. One of them is electric to the ignition sparker, the other ?.
I live at a rental and could not find the manual until after I had removed and cleaned everything, including lifting the range top up to clean underneath. The top is NOT meant to be removes, I learned, slightly bending one of the metal clips that hold it down to the rest of the stove. Besides, there is no underneath to clean though, just thin mental pieces running front-to-back under each left and right side of two burners surrounded by insulation. Importantly, thin aluminum gas tubes supply each burner from the main gas input.
In short, think I may have bent and broken one of these tubes, causing a loud gas sound, and now the burner does light. ARrrrRggg! DO NOT LIFT UP THE RANGE TOP on this model.

I have the same model and only two of my burners pull out. I have tried to force the other two but I am afraid that I might break it. It is VERY inconvenient, but I just scrub around the burners and put the top removable parts that sit on top (where you place the pot) in the dishwasher. After the stove has had a chance to dry for a few hours, I then have to go around the burners with a toothpick and poke out the little holes where the gas comes out b/c they get clogged with soap from cleaning.
It really is an inconvenient stove to clean and I have yet to find any removable trays to buy that might fit, and that can be put in the dishwasher. It's strange...it seems like the manufacturers aren't making stoves anymore with removable dishwasher safe trays for ease of cleaning; when purchasing this stove last year, I looked and looked for a stove with removable trays and was unable to find any. It's unfortunate, and I hope that they bring this feature back to future models.
I have also had problems with the oven control touch pad on this model, so please think twice before purchasing this model!

I have a MGR4452BDW. The burners turn 1/4 turn, then pull out. Yours should too.
