Convenience at Your Fingertips
I like this simple use as opposed to all the Convection high tech appliances now a days.
The stainless surfaces seem to stain quite easily. Control pad is the same as my old GE range and works well. Unfortunately, the bottom sliding drawer was sprung and all out-of-kilter. Plus it seemed very cheap and flimsy compared to the drawer in my old range. There is no handle on the drawer, only a very shallow impression embossed into the top edge. Looks like it'd be hard to open the drawer once you fill it with heavy pans or baking sheets. My Mom didn't like it, so we are returning the range and have found a nicer Kenmore range with a real handle on the bottom drawer (which was much sturdier as well).
The one think I do not like about my new GE Range is the oven time. The volume is so-o-o low I can not hear it even when I am sitting a few feet away. My cookies almost burnt up because I was in another room and did not hear the timer.
We purchased this item for our kitchen because we were changing all the appliances to black. It looks great in the spot and was easy to set up. Not a lot to do in the set up at all, but putting the drawer in, racks in, and leveling it. The only thing that I don't like and is a concern to us is that the stove gets extremely hot when you use the oven. You can't touch it if you are using the oven due to the heat. I feel that if a small child or elderly person accidentally touch this without knowing they could get a burn. Everyone in my house is aware of the situation, my husband and I from experience, and we don't touch the stove top when using the oven. If we do we use pot holders.
My old stove only had 1 large burner so like that this one has 2 large and 2 small, also like the ease of moving the oven racks and that the stove top lifts up to clean under it if something boils over.
