Sleek Look & Convenient Functions
The only reason I gave this a 4 out of 5 is the burner size. Love the Large Left Front Burner. I wish both front burner were this size. Wish the both back Burner were the size of the back right because the back left burner is not real useful to us. I really Love the center burner. Love the fact that all grates including the griddle are the same height and size which makes it easy to set anything on top of the stove.
We purchased this unit, the GE JGB860SEJ4SS, in Match of 2017. Overall, while we are happy with the looks of the Range, but, overall we would not recommend. For the Stove Top, when we first received the unit, we were very happy with it. The Burner are High Output and bring water to a boil quickly. The levels are easy to adjust to get just the right temperature. We were especially excited about the Center Burner and purchased the Optional Griddle. We didn't use the Griddle a ton, but we were happy with it. After not using it for several weeks, we tried to use it again, and the flame was so low, that even after 15 minutes at full heat, it wasn't hot enough to get a drop of water to even sizzle. And turned all the way down, the burner wouldn't even stay lite. I removed the orifice from the center burner and noticed that I couldn't even see through the hole. I grabbed a toothpick and cleaned out the hole and pulled a bunch of black flakes out of the interior of the orifice. After cleaning, I was able to see though the hole and I replace the orifice. After replacing, the burner level was much higher, similar to what it was when we first received the stove. Once the I finished the repair, we've been very happy with the cooktop. With the Center griddle, we are getting the temperatures we'd expect, with out having to turn the burner on full. Now, to the ovens. The double ovens was one of the main reasons the we picked this range over the several other that we were looking at. But, in hind site, the Ovens - both of them - have been the biggest disappointment. When we first had the stove installed, we were having issue with cooking times, some things over done, others under done, when compared to our old oven. We we also having issues with things cooking un-evenly. For example, something simple like a frozen pizza, the front of the pizza was barely brown and the back of the pizza was almost burnt. We spent sometime making adjustment to the temperature, which was extremely easy to do in the control panel, and eventually got the cooking time closer to what we expected, and to the instruction on the recipes. But we were still having issues with things in the back of the oven cooking quicker then things in the front of the oven. And we are seeing this on both the top and bottom ovens. After several months of "experimenting" with the ovens calibration and cooking times, we even tried letting the over preheat for another 10 to 20 minutes after the Control panel says that the oven has reached temperature, to let the ovens stabilize and even out through the entire oven. We also purchased a mercury thermometer to check the temperature rather the the coil one that we already had, and proceeded to spend the rest of the day recalibrating the temperature. Letting the oven preheat for almost a half hour each time. Again, easy to make any needed adjustments by going in the the service menu. After making all of the adjustments, our cooking times are about what we'd expect, but, still having issues with things towards the back of the oven during, while things in the front are barely browning. So, at this point our solution is to rotate anything that we're putting in the oven and rotate it half way through it's cooking time. That seems to help a little bit, but, we still have issues. Not Looking forward to the coming holidays and all the cooking that we'll be doing and having to fight with the temperatures of both of these ovens. We have yet to even try the Convection Bake or Roast, since that's a new feature for us and we feel like if we can't even get the regular ovens to work correctly, we don't even want to try doing something we are unfamiliar with and screw up our dinners even more. Bottom line, while we love the Cooktop, we could not recommend this stove for purchase, due to the issues with both ovens.
We are still learning about the stove, but so far we are happy with it. It's very attractive, and the stove top burners offer multiple power options. I finally have a burner that is hot enough for stir fry. I have not yet found much use for the center burner, which supports the griddle. But maybe that's because I don't want to use the griddle (has a coated aluminum surface and I don't trust the chemical coating not coming off in my food). The two ovens are great! Especially for large gatherings, or for when friends or family are bringing dishes which need heating up or additional cooking. I can use one of the ovens as a warming oven if I like. Cons include there being no drip pans (that seems crazy to me), but I am using an oven liner fabric which I cut to the shape of the stove top and that is working pretty well. The ovens need calibration and I still haven't found consistency with maintaining a predictable temperature (seems to vary based on the temperature range I am using); however, I do have an oven thermometer and that is helping me keep reliable temps. I still really like the range. Big plus - if the power goes off I can still lite the gas burners.
I really like this stove because of the griddle and the double oven. I plan on using them a lot.
I love the gas stove and the double oven feature including the option for convection cooking!!
I really like having the double oven. Don't have to heat up the whole large oven to cook a pizza, etc. Also like the variety of burner sizes on the top. Haven't used the grill/griddle on the top yet.
My wife loves the double ovens, and this has sped up cooking dinner significantly. Convection oven works really nicely.
What could be improved - we have two ovens; why only one timer? Also, the non-convection oven doesn't seem to heat as evenly as it should, so wife is having to adjust timing/placement in oven to compensate.
Overall, a nice addition to the kitchen.
