I previously had a GE electric stove and I liked it. This is what encouraged me to look at GE stoves. I was hesitant to buy the ceramic top but I"m glad I did. You must get the proper cleaning accessories and wait till the surface cools before trying too clean..I learned this the hard way. It takes a little bit of effort to keep it clean after each use but it's totally worth it to have a nice clean surface. I really don't miss the heating elements & pans..those were impossible to keep clean! Stove works great and looking forward to many years together!
Very disappointed in this stove. It looks great, but the oven temp readout is 50 -100 degrees off from the digital readout. I had to purchase a oven thermometer to discover why I was having problems with baking in the oven. Repairman explained oven sensor is located at the top of the oven, adjacent to the heating element, and gives a false reading to oven controls. No way to repair design flaw. Now, after turning the oven on, I must wait 20-30 additional minutes after the digital registers the temp that I set, before the oven thermometer reaches the desired temp. It is aggravating to the point that I wish I had not purchased this stove. For someone who loves to bake, this stove is a disaster.
We really like the looks and features of this range. Although we've only owned it for about 3-months, we have used it quite a bit. The convection oven is something we weren't sure was necessary, but we've found it very useful and like the baked product results. The only thing we've found negative about this unit (and no doubt is not unique to GE, but other mfgs as well), is the dark glass topped stove. We found it is significantly difficult to clean and keep clean. Regardless of simply boiling a pot of water, or cooking anything that might spit & splatter a bit, it seems to easily bake-on and stain the surface which then requires a special paste cleaner, scrub pad and cloths to get clean again. Despite this added labor, we are overall very pleased with this range thus far.
This is a replacement for a 23+ year old Frigidaire Gallery. So far, we love it... and it looks great with hickory. This stove & oven definitely heat up a lot smoother than the previous stove. It's not quite 5 stars, because the top is hard to keep clean. Otherwise, it's a great stove.
Quality is still in the GE name! Many features with this range!
Heats quickly and is easy to use just as advertised.
I really love the flat top cooking surface. it works very well and cleans up quickly. The convection oven is a must have!
