    Had this for a couple of months now. Works just fine. Temperature seems even, cook time is always the longer time, e.g. 20-25 minutes it will be the 25 minutes, Nice size oven, broiler works well. It has auto clean but haven't tried that yet, seems easy. The top griddle is nice but I don't use it as much as I thought I would. Maybe I need to cook pancakes more often. Bacon works well on it and I have used it to quick grill some hotdogs and brown some brats. Reason for 4 stars is due to some small complaints. The timer is goofy. These are small complaints but still an aggravation for me, Timer auto goes up/down 5 min and kinda quick. I always seem to overshoot the time wanted and end up having to hit the button like 12 times for a 12 minute timer. Also, you can't add minutes to the timer once it starts without turning the timer off first...not a big deal but like I said it is an aggravation for me. Also, the broiler only comes with a rack, should come with a tray as well. The broiler is a little difficult to use as it is so low to the floor. Oh, and I didn't get a manual. Best Buy said to print it off the web, or they would have their Geek Squad print me a copy (one sided, really?) but for this money I should have the manufacturer manual. As I said, small complaints. Overall, I am pleased with the oven. Best Buy's delivery was awesome. I had to reschedule the delivery and it was easy to do. They were quick and professional. They disconnected and removed the old oven and even gave me time to clean up a melted mess of a jolly rancher that was under the old one, eww!

    Love it but cleaning is difficult

    I love my new stove with the center griddle. I gave 4 stars only because the cleaning is a nightmare. When it arrived, there were finger prints and streaks all over the stainless steel that would not come off no matter what I used. I was told a stainless steel cleaner would remove them. Ok, when I buy some I will follow up with this. Then the 1st time I used the oven, I made a Lazagne and a little bit of it spilled over onto the bottom. My whole house was filled with smoke and it was burning badly. As directed, I poured a cup of water in the bottom and did the steam clean 2x. It was a huge mess of charcoal burnt black. I ruined 2 dishtowels trying to wipe it off. Mind you this was a very small spill over that somehow managed to reach all areas inside the oven including the top, sides and glass as well as racks. It is baked on there pretty good now and I am afraid to use it again until I can buy some oven cleaner and clean it the old fashioned way. The cook top is also very difficult to keep clean. Perhaps because it is black. I am hoping these issues can be resolved after I purchase the recommended cleaner. I also agree with what others have said about the broiler. You basically have to get down and sit on the floor to use it. Other than that, I would re consider maybe buying a WHITE one.

    Love the slate finish, which doesn't show fingerprints like stainless steel does. It is a classy and efficient look that goes with everything. As opposed to white or even black; after cooking it isn't as obvious that it needs wiped down. I mean I will get to it but for that time you get an unexpected guest after making spaghetti sauce....they wouldn't notice right away you haven't gotten to it just yet. The oven bakes a bit hot so I will look into making sure temp settings are accurate. Stovetop with the additional griddle feature is convenient to cook eggs, pancakes, or sausage for a large family without dragging out the plug-in griddle you have somewhere in your pan cupboard that is hard to clean. The built-in removable griddle on this stove is easy to clean:) Love this feature that utilizes prior empty space to expand your cooking options. Very happy with the bigger burners as I rarely need the smaller burner so I would recommend they change that feature to make all burners the bigger ones. This stove however has more larger burners than most and an extra large burner as well that I can appreciate. Couldn't be happier with my first brand new stove purchase:)

    I’ve had this range for about a month, and I love it! My old one was 14 years old and served me well with no problems, at least until it broke down. A new range wasn’t in my immediate plans but became a necessity. This range is beautiful, and it cooks and bakes well and evenly. I haven’t used the griddle yet and probably won’t use it much anyway, but I do plan to get the optional grate for the griddle area. The oversized hefty grates and knobs give it my ch more of a high-end look, and so far I have had no issues cleaning it. Other reviewers have mentioned this range is difficult to clean and keep clean but I haven’t had that problem at all. I clean up spills immediately anyway so that may have something to do with it cleaning easily. I would think it may be more difficult to keep clean if spills are allowed to dry and harden over time, but mine works great and looks great and I love it. I never thought I could get such a lovely and quality range for only $539!

    It took me awhile to write a review, because I wanted to be sure this Gas stove would get me where I needed to be!! With that being said, I purchased this stove at the end of last summer(2018). I read ALOT of the reviews on the best buy website. I absolutely love it!!! It cooks great on the stovetop, it bakes great, and now I don't have to cook bacon in the skillet ever again!!! I use the middle griddle to cook bacon on it. This stove is also easy to clean up after you have cooked on it. You just use soap and water and wipe it up, no scrubbing!!! This stove definitely works really well doing the holidays, ( for ex: Thanksgiving and Christmas) you have so much room to use both the front and back to place pots and etc. The only thing I have yet to use is the steam clean feature. With all the cooking in the oven, I have not have to use this feature yet, because it isn't really dirty or too much stains yet.

    The broiler is NOT part of the main oven as in models I’ve had before. It is in the door below and very small. Difficult to reach in with out burning yourself and only accommodates a very small pan. The oven works well and it looks nice. The appliance was installed wrong by Best Buy which caused a gas leak. customer service after the install was TERRIBLE. PGE had to come out and shut off the gas. Best Buy only had to say “No one is coming out today to fix it” They never came out and was impossible to get a call back PGE says they won’t reconnect the stoves anymore them because they get so many calls For gas leaks after Best Buy installs.

    I've owned this stove now for two months and love the center griddle and plan to buy the cast iron one. I'm a single dad who cooks every day for my hungry teenage son. This is easier to keep clean than a white stove too! My only complaint is the extra burner grills as they cover two burners a piece instead of each burner having their own individual cover grills. There way heavier and the fit is a bit tight. I'm probably used to the older stove we use to have, but for the money, this is a great stove. All though I'm a man, I love to cook and use it just about everyday and so far it rocks!!! Good luck stove hunting :-).

    The great stove for the price

    I received my GE white stove the men that brought it for very professional they made their way in the house put the stove down gently and unpacked it. One thing I liked about the stove a lot and I used right away was the center burners it's like a flat plate, first thing I cooked on it what's a pile of French toast. It did a great job on that, ate them up. And of course Thanksgiving cooked up a 20 pound turkey, turkey gravy and stuffing. The stove did a Flawless job on the turkey. I have no complaints with this stove at all. Next thing I try it's going to be a nice juicy steak down in the broiler.

    I did not receive a guide for the appliance. The broiler drawer is way too small. Fingerprints are difficult to clean off. Timer is a little difficult to set (if I had a guide, it would probably be easier to understand). I love the middle grill. I was not sure at first, but the burner heats evenly and its so easy to heat up food and clean. Great for tortillas/pancakes,,,etc. If you do not need a bottom broiler (I think you can broil in the oven) this is not a good selection. You would be better off getting an oven with an internal broiler and a bottom drawer that pulls out for storage.

    Has 4 different burners; oven timer and light; steam clean oven; works great! Easy to clean. Griddle is very useful and has replaced my old Hamilton Beach grill Recommended that you also buy JXGRATE1 replacement center grate(not included) to better vent heat when using oven or broiler and also buy a broiler pan (which is also not included).

    It's been over a month and I have not found one thing about this stove I don't like. It's on the much lower end of all the available stoves in store but it looks and operates beautifully. I can't say I've owned a stove that wasn't baseline inexpensive or used prior to this one so it's hard to compare, but so far I'm pleased with what I spent for what I received. Easy to clean, simple to figure out how to operate, haven't used the middle burner yet - but so far so good. I'd rather have had a drawer on the bottom than a broiler, but that's personal preference and I can't knock the stove for that.

    After nearly a week of ownership, I am pleased. Fit and finish is good. Hook up was easy and their were no glitches in making sure that everything worked properly. My only negative reaction is in regards to the effective heating area of the center burner. It could have about 4" longer to properly heat the unit. As it is, about 2" from either end in from the drainage dips is a low heat zone. If you cook an egg with the edge of the egg meeting the drainage dip, only half of the egg gets cooked. Asides from that, I am happy with the stove.

    This was a much needed purchase and we are quite satisfied with the quality. The stove top heats food quickly and the griddle is an enjoyable asset for making pancakes for our large family. The oven cooked our Thanksgiving Turkey well! We even used the bottom broiler for pizza making. It is a bit awkward below, but overall, we are thankful for it. The Best Buy saleman was helpful in our decision making. We felt confident in the service we received for the set up conversion from gas to propane. All in all, we are blessed.

    Only a couple of weeks of use and maybe using the griddle 5 times, the surface on the griddle is coming off! I do not use metal kitchen utensils, but the black soft plastic and the surface is showing wear! I'm going to contact GE to see if the will replace the griddle. Until I get a response from them I'm not going to recommend this item. So far the oven and burners operate well but disappointed in the griddle

    I purchased this gas range for my mom as a surprise. Let me start off by saying it’s amazing and looks like a high end one for the price. I was trying to choose between this one and a cheaper whirlpool one but im glad I chose this range the way it’s built looks amazing. In addition, the middle griddle comes is handy even if you think you’ll never use it l. Also the oven cooks very well throughout since I have baked in it already to try it out. Lastly, it has self cleaning so that’s a major plus!

    This oven is everything I need it to be. I love that it has a window and light inside to check on food. I also like the use of usual wasted space by incorporating a 5th burner/skillet . I have only used it once to make grilled cheese, but it worked well. The only drawback is the broiler that is under neath. Not a problem if you are used to this, but my old oven had burner inside,and there was a drawer on bottom for storage. So not a deal breaker but a minor inconvenience.

    This stove is stylish and functional. I like the 5 burners, though not sure how often I'll use the 5th burner. I like the self-steam clean oven feature, though I haven't used it yet. I like the generously sized burner knobs. Buttons for stove are easy figure out. Cooks evenly and very easy to control flame level. My only issue is I wish the base for the cooktop was stainless instead of black, but that doesn't affect functionality, just my personal esthetic.

    Griddle issues

    So, I love everything about this oven other than the griddle issues. Those issues are basically, the coating has started to peel off in some areas for some reason. I've never used anything that would scratch or damage it so I'm at a loss. I specifically bought it for the 5th burner griddle options so it is a touch of a bummer. But it performs well, cooks evenly, and has been great otherwise.

    This is a really nice and affordable range. I love the built-in skillet pan to cook breakfast food. We had problems at first with a damaged range was delivered and it wasn't even the model we purchased. After 1 week of not having a stove to use, and several customer service phone calls, our correct, undamaged range was finally delivered. It's not the fanciest range, but a very nice one.

    The stove is well made,not flimsy as some other brands. Much Better looking and more features than the cheaper stoves. The built in griddle is a nice idea,easy to clean and the oven works very well. Some of the other brand stoves had poor racks and were more expensive.The steam cleaning feature doesn't work too well, but overall we are very happy with the stove and would buy again.
