    Maybe one day I'll be able to tell you.....

    Maybe one day I'll be able to tell you..... Unfortunately it is still sitting on top of my new range, which is sitting in my kitchen waiting for someone to come install it. I am at a loss as to what I actually need to do to get someone to come to my house, slide the range over to its place and plug it in. So far I've had 3 false starts, and several just completely missed appointments. I thought we might be getting somewhere when I was told the range would be installed on 6/18, the same day my new dishwasher was going to be delivered and installed. Once again, we heard "not my job". They did however, remove my semi-functional old slide-in range, rather than remove my dishwasher with the door that is duck taped shut. But why would they remove my dishwasher - it wasn't even delivered. Apparently it was necessary to cut off my ability to cook while I wait for someone to finally install the fabulous looking cord. But thanks for leaving the old dishwasher folks! As it stands now, I went to Best Buy Memorial Day Weekend and purchased a new refrigerator, dishwasher, range, microwave and ice machine - quite a substantial purchase. But I guess that's all you wanted - the purchase, because as of right now, I've gotten just my refrigerator delivered and installed. The microwave and ice maker were delivered and installed by my friend, thank you. As an Interior Designer and member of the DC/MD/VA ASID, I will be sure to share my experience with all my fellow kitchen designers so they can know in advance what may happen to them, or God forbid, a client!

    Delivery personnel gave me an incorrect cord

    I purchased this item as a recommended accessory when I ordered the range in-store, thus I did not read the description for it. When my range was delivered, the delivery guys gave me a 3-prong cord even though my kitchen was being remodeled at that time and the outlet cover had not yet been installed. They did so without even asking me. When my electrician came the next day, he told me according to code he had to install a 4-prong outlet and the 3-prong cord cannot be used. I thought I simply ordered the wrong item and so I went back to the Best Buy store to return it. On writing this review, I found that the delivery personnel was supposed to give me the correct cord! Why would they assume I have a 3-prong outlet without even checking with me? Only one-star because I did not receive a usable item.

    Be certain if you need a 3 prong or a 4 prong

    I was required to buy this for best buy to install it for me. When they removed the old oven they said "oh, you have a four prong receptacle not a 3 prong". The guys were nice enough to give me a 4 prong cord that they had on the truck that was labeled for dryers but its amperage was not recomended for that oven per the manual. So I ended up having to go and buy a new cable and since the delivery guys took the one I bought I was stuck with the dryer cord that I couldnt return. This is not an issue with the product itself but more with the fact that best buy recomended this for the oven when it was the incorrect one...unless your house was built before 1985 when the electrical code changed.

    The only cords that the driver had did not fit our plug and were a plug and power that would not fit our fuse box set-up. After at least 20 minutes on the phone with the drivers' supervisor, we were told that we needed to get an electrician to put on a different plug and change our fuse box (which would mean running a new cord from the fuse box to our oven). When the electrician came we called again to verify what was needed.... 1/2 hour later we were told all of this was unnecessary .....UGH!! They acted like this was never a problem........most homes are set up like ours!!! I ended up getting my own new cord and had our electrician put on a new plug since he was there. This was $150 later,,,,,UNNECESSARY!!!!!

    What can you possibly say about a cord? It appears to be working well so far-every time we try to use our stove, the power comes on! I wouldn't recommend this item if you don't have a stove or dryer to attach it to. It seems like that would just be a waste of your time and money, unless you are an avid cord collector but I am not qualified to speak about the intrinsic or collectable value of this item.

    Range Cord

    Best Buy requires you to buy a new range cord when you have a new range installed and I am glad they did. This cord is highly rated for safety. There are so many product recalls involving appliance electric cords for you not to upgrade the most important safety feature of an electric range. My installer was sent by Best Buy, but he happens to be a neighbor. He said it was the best cord available for non-commercial appliances. My old cord did not have the same safety rating. Buy the best one you can. I trusted Best Buy and I got a great product.

    The cord fit and was easily installed. This cord was also much more supple than the one with the older stove. We had a terrible time trying to unplug and plug back in the older cord when cleaning behind the stove or trying to move it. I am very satisfied with this cord. NOW if they would move the receptacle from next to the floor up where we can reach it.

    New cord

    Best Buy recommends new Cords with the purchase of a range. Our new cord has done well so far. The delivery men have to install the no tip bracket if you want them to install the cord. Best Buy's Delivery Men in Evansville, IN Rock! They let us know the baseboard behind the stove had to be removed to install the no tip bracket. Upon installation the quarter round on the left and right of the stove had to be removed so it would fit. They take their time unpacking appliances and are very careful bringing them in and installing them.

    The installers placed the cord on the new range before bringing the range into our house. Saved time. Cord is working well and no issues. I only wish it wasn't a separate item from the cost of the range. You have to have it, so seems like a gimmick. Recommend Best Buy include the appliance cords as part of the purchase price of an appliance. Much simpler for the consumer.

    You don't really need to put this into your basket, but you want to have it available when the installer arrives. The easiest way to be sure is to buy this at the same time you buy the new stove. (Who knew that the connecting range cord is not part of the appliance you are purchasing? I did not!) Just make sure that your salesperson looks up which cord is needed! Ideally the installer will have both available, but to be sure...ASK!

    Just wish there was a shorter length available

    The only reason I did not give four stars is not a fault in this product. The range we purcased did not have enough room underneath to accommodate this long cord. It was very difficult for the installer to position it under the range to fit flush against the wall. According to the installer there is not a shorter or more flexible option. I don't know if there are other options available through other retailers but this cord has adjusted with time and the heat from the range to fit properly.

    New Plug for a New Oven

    We bought this to go with our new slide-in oven. It hooked in great to our stove but since our house is older, we had to upgrade the outlet. Once that was swapped, it worked as intended. Just don’t wait to check out your outlet to make sure it will work until the delivery guys are there or you won’t get to see if the oven works until you swap outlets. Lesson learned!

    Too long!!!!

    This cord came with our range that we purchased. The cord itself works wonderfully. No complaints there. But I am giving this 2 stars because it is much too long for most range set ups that do not need to reach any distance. It's packing under our range and it affects the buttom drawer from being pulled out and pushed back in. Other than that, if you need extra length to your cord for installation purposes, this will work just fine.

    We Initially wanted a GE cord for the new GE range but were told that's not in stock at the warehouse, so we really didn't have much choice but we were assured that it's a reliable product and Best Buy never had any problems in the past. The reason why our old range stopped working was because the cable had shorted due to a botched installation. Hopefully this cable is going to assure the longevity of the new range.

    Wrong prongs

    This is a good cord, but my outlet is 4 prong and this is 3. Because of where I live, delivery fee was astronomical and I opted for carry out. Therefore, no Geek Squad service to fix the problem at installation. AND since I only get to Knoxville occasionally, I'm just out the money for something I can't use

    When it was installed the only glitch was that the electric cord was stiff and turning in one direction. The hook-up connection on the range was on the opposite side. The installer was able to connect it with a little bit of effort however it would have been easier if the cord was more flexible. It may have been stiff because it was stored in a cold area. Perhaps it should be stored inside until it is needed for an installation.

    Well, its a power cord, and it works fine. One very important thing to note. If you can get a look at your electric range of choice ahead of time, take measurements of the areas in the back that will sit flush against the wall, and make sure your power outlet isn't in that same area where the range needs to sit flush. If it is, you will need to relocate your outlet to accommodate the dimensions of the power plug itself. I learned that the hard way...

    Works fine so far. The only major disappointment was delivery. Best buy 3rd party delivery people who came initially they just dropped the items off. They were to connect everything but they didn't. It took two weeks to get their delivery people to get everything connected. Best buy needs to have their own delivery people not 3rd party. But the product itself is excellent choice so far and I'd strongly recommend it.

    Where do I begin! This cable is so amazing, it's almost divine. It sends the voodoo magic known as electricity from the wall plug of horror to my lvl 6 apparatus of cooking (equipped with the sauté rune stone of course) with haste. Without this wonderful required item, I would be no better than the common peasant. I am so happy I can cook my meat and prepare my gruel. HAZAA

    GR8 Heavy Duty Cord. Little steep on the price

    This cord was an add on purchase along with a samsung convection oven i purchased. It is a great heavy duty item and easily long enough for the task at hand... If you're an electrician, you can find this for cheaper and wire up your stove all by yourself. If you don't know what you're doing, spend the money and let best buy do all the work.. recommended for people who know nothing about electrical connections wiring and the like...
