-Looks good, This is a freestanding range, not a slide in, but it doesn't have a back piece that sticks up. I hate the way those look. You also have to reach over hot burners to get to the controls on most ranges that have the back piece. This is the only range with 2 ovens that is like this except for the Electrolux which is dual fuel and requires a 220 line. The top of the stove (under the burners) is stainless also. On most ranges it is black even if the front is stainless.
-Huge amount of oven space for 30". It has more than my 48" Viking had.
-Lower oven preheats to 350 in 8 minutes, which is pretty fast.
-2 powerful burners. They are higher BTUs than the Viking burners. The left front power burner can also can go down very low- almost like a candle for anything very delicate.
-Electronics. Most ranges have most of these, but the "professional" ranges like Viking do not. This includes timer, temperature probe cooking, delayed start, etc.
-Lower oven has an electric element on the ceiling to produce more even heat than just the gas burner on the floor. Not sure how this affects usage costs (electric costs more than gas almost everywhere in US for ovens). It is not 220, so maybe the draw isn't than much.
-Self cleaning. Yes, even cheap ranges are self cleaning now, but some professional are not. My Viking wasn't.
-Ball bearing rack. It moves very smoothly.
-There is only 1 ball bearing rack in the lower oven. The other 2 (1 in upper, 1 in lower) are standard racks.Read more ›
Our biggest issue is exactly what Consumer Reports promised--the top oven does not cook evenly. For every pan of cookies, we lose 25% of them, generally in the upper left hand corner. In addition, the bottom gets very hot and will burn garlic bread on the bottom while the top is barely browned. This upper oven is controlled with a knob and not digitally and the indicator light is not very visible unless you are looking from a distance. We didn't hear about these issues until after we purchased it and, while we love the look and the features, having a nonfunctional upper oven defeats the whole purpose of our investment. Consumer Reports indicates that this is not an uncommon problem--we will be pursuing a return after owning it for less than a month. So sad as it meets so many other needs!
GE should take more care in protecting its brand on its premium appliances. Why would I purchase any GE product if they can't get the fundamentals right on something at this price point? Very, very disappointing!

This oven because of the many wonderful features it has. It is also very attractive to not have back controls so you can see your backsplash. Read morePublished 4 months ago by m82492
