    Great stove, researched the heck out of it

    Buying a fridge was far easier in 2017 than figuring out which stove is actually worth the bang for the buck. I needed an upgrade from an old electric stove to a gas stove (which I grew up with and prefer). A major concern of mine was hearing all the reviews for various stoves and how hard/easy it is to clean the black top. You do have to regularly clean the top of any stove, though, so I'm wondering if it's an issue of the new stoves these days, or the fact that the color of most stoves are black on the top. This stove had a lot of reports of how easy it is to clean, and I concur. Takes a simple swipe of a cloth with dishwashing detergent and then just dry it. This model does have more bells and whistles than I will ever use. I am not at all interested in coordinating with a microwave that costs $400 and running an app off my cellphone for my stove. However, I did find the Convection Roast mode to be interesting and it didn't let me down. It is a great feature that works as advertised. For those of you who may not be aware of why this oven is higher priced than its much less expensive brother model, Convection Roast Mode (not the same as Convection Bake Mode), an additional super powerful front burner, and the bluetooth capacities make it different. I am not really blown away by the Convection Bake Mode, though. It doesn't seem to decrease any recipe times, nor does it seem to do anything spectacularly different. Convection Roast Mode is definitely good bang for buck, as I roast stuff all the time. The front burners are ridiculously powerful. I can boil a normal 2qt tea kettle in just a few minutes, which insanely beats out my old electric stove's time of around eleven minutes. I have found that I have to adjust my cooking methods for making rice, though, since the front burner heats the pot a little too intensely and that residual heat bakes the rice into the bottom when set to simmer. This is true even if I use the front burner to boil the rice and the simmer burner in the back to simmer it. I just use the back burner to do the whole thing and have great results now. The central cast iron griddle is fantastic and is a very welcome addition to my kitchen. It is heavy and appears to be very well made. I have used it every other day for about two months now, so I can attest to its quality. It is also such an easy way to cook burgers on the ridged griddle side, letting me grill to my hearts content inside now. I lack a broiling pan, so I haven't used that feature. If I find that doesn't work, I'd definitely knock a star.

    Fantastic performance without breaking the bank

    Wife and I wanted an oven that cooked well, had self cleaning features and offered flexibility in burners. This oven ticked all of the boxes and we are really happy with our choice. The fact that it looks cool is a bonus. We've been using it for about a month now. We have not had to use the self-cleaning features yet, but I can comment on its oven and burner performance. Having high BTU burners for boiling water is fantastic. What used to take 15-20 minutes with our old oven now takes less than half that. The only drawback is the burner gets so hot that it began to warp a cheap pot we had and melt the handles! The simmer burner is awesome as well. But my favorite is the oval burner with the griddle / grill insert. It works just like a big cast iron skillet. My kids love pancakes, french toast, etc. and they can't wrap their heads around cooking without a pan :) And movement of pots on the range surface is really easy with the continuous burner tops. In the oven, the combinations of convection, broiling and traditional baking settings offer great flexibility. Cooking is really even and I've tested temperatures consistently at +/- 5 degrees F. We really love having three racks as well.The only downside I can identify is the user interface. Again, we weren't interested in all the display bells and whistles so this was not a deal breaker for me. But in reading the manual and online reviews, having to push two buttons simultaneously an toggle through this and that, seems a bit clunky. I've read the newer model has streamlined things in this area so at least GE reads their customers' comments and makes changes accordingly. All in all we are really pleased with our purchase and can recommend this oven without hesitation.

    Gas Convection Stove

    I've now been using this stove for 3 months. I have been nothing but impressed. This stove comes with a grill/griddle cast iron which is interchangeable with JSGrate1 (which you have to order separately. The grill works great for grilling vegatables and the griddle side is great for pancakes. All burners heat food with balanced heat to pots and pans. The JSGrate1 works great as a fifth burner for smaller pots or just to keep items warm while using the other burners. No issues with control board or oven. Note: You will have to order the JSGrate1 from GE as it does not come included. Since I ordered one I also ordered the broiler pan and broiler rack.

    Beautiful Range

    This stove is absolutely beautiful. I am so happy I purchase the third grate from GE parts. The champagne trim is a great touch. I cleaned it up and used the small, oval and 1 large burner. Unfortunately Best Buy only sell 1/2" gas lines, I needed 3/4" ...thereby making me go to Home Depot, get correct fitting (another $6) and installing myself. Best Buy needs to equip installers with 3/4 and 1" fittings so the customer receives a more positive experience. Everyone does not have knowledge or want to "hook-up" appliances. Sales person as well as installers get A! ratings also. They were helpful, knowledgeable and patient.

    Great range, not fond of convection setting

    I love the range. I spent extra to get the convection feature. I refuse to use it because temperature setting does not stay true. It takes longer to bake with convection setting. I am not pleased with that aspect. I have bought GE appliances for a long time, this is the first one I have not been totally pleased with. I love all the other features just not convection.

    Good stove with one exception

    Love the new stove. Only problem is the center griddle feature. I thought it would be great to have that feature but using it is a mess. A pain to clean since you're not suppose to clean with soap. We don't use it nearly enough to make it worthwhile. I've considered buying the regular burner grate but it's nearly $200. And the oblong burner makes it difficult to use without burning up the handle of your pan. Otherwise love the stove.

    Cooks nicely

    Grills are very heavy. It would be nice to have separate grills for each burner so that the heat is not spread to an unused burner. The center grill is the heaviest. The non-warmer, pan storage drawer in the bottom of the stove is so thin that it makes the range seem cheap. Controls are a bit strange. Owner's Manual was missing so maybe when a replacement arrives we will find out their are settings to customize.

    Have you seen this? It's got a griddle in the middle that can also be used as a warming plate. Easy to clean the top after cooking. Has a very nice look to it and matches the rest of the appliances I purchased. This is the GE Profile. I upgraded my appliances because I had been in my home for 18+ years. They were all GE Profile and lasted and performed perfectly until the day they were replaced.
