Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Wobbly storage drawer

WMDW 3/30/2020

My only negative comment is about the storage drawer at the base of the range. It is wobbly, and I have to work with it to close it evenly. Perhaps it was installed incorrectly?

A work horse

Blacktie65 3/13/2020

This stove was bought specifically for the older style heating elements, which allows us to put this stove to work without having to worry about scratching a new glass style cook top. The controls are very straight forward, oven temperature checks with my hand held thermometer. Food is delicious, probably more to do with the cook than the stove, but you need good tools, and so far for the first 5 months things are good.

elgreco251 3/10/2020

I like the features that came with it as standard product. The sensors within the heating coils to prevent overheating seems like a nice idea. Once you understand the buttons, it is easy to set the temperature and adjust the clock. The manual is lacking and does not make use of the instrument panel easier. I think a simpler, less digital and more analog dial would make temperature setting easier that repeated taps of the button. That aside, it is a nice unit and we are pleased.

third time buying a similar range from GE, how is is it that the outside of the range became slightly larger, but the inside of the oven keeps decreasing? Not sure how that works. I saved the racks from my previous ranges and surprise! the new oven was smaller.

I really liked, HATE the drawer!

aimee65 3/4/2020

I needed a new range and I really like this however the drawer is AWFUL!. It doesn't pull in and out very nice and most of all - it is cheap in my opinion. They couldn't use enough metal on the sides and back like older ranges, so you can hardly fit much in it and everything always falls behind the drawer. Wish I had noticed it before I bought it as I would have bought a different range.

MeH2ofit 2/29/2020

This range is perfect for me. It is a sleek, simple design in steel. The coils lay flat and don't slide in their pans due to the design notch to hold cool in place. Heats up quickly and temperature on coils and oven are spot on. Simple to clean. Self cleaning, so insulated well.

ccslkm 2/5/2020

I've been cooking on a hot plate for about 9 months now so this is a vast improvement over that! Love my new range and the big oven that cooks in the time it says on the carton instead of 10 or 15 minutes longer. Haven't really used the automatic cutoff function yet but it's good as we are getting older and sometimes forget to turn off the burner. Love it!

Stove looks nice, works well. I gave it 4 stars because the bottom drawer came a little messed up, waiting for GE repair person to come and fix it, this weekend. I'm planning on using drawer for pots and pans, so was disappointed with drawer. If service goes well, I would probably give it 5 stars.

Great range, but

Rhonpat 1/28/2020

Love the oven, very accurate temps but hate the sensi coils that came with the range. Keeps turning off and can't keep temperatures up so food comes out soggy and not nicely fried. When I called to complain, customer service said that happens and the only solution was to find the sensi coils "sweet spot" or replace the sensi coils with regular coils. I've not found the "sweet spot" so have given up on frying food.

Worst GE range

Granbury511 11/1/2019

We've had similar GE ranges for over 30 years and this is by far the worst designed. Probably the "advancement" from analog to digital. Can't use clock when oven is on, Can't adjust oven temp. without starting over, oven racks get hung up on screws, can't set warming temp. on burners low enough, oven drawer is useless because it does not stay on the rail and falls on the floor.

Lesser of two evils

Blackwatchbear 10/30/2019

Rather than buy a glass top, I chose this stove because of the drip pans which are porcelain coated for easier cleaning. Disappointed in the slow heating of burners and oven. Bottom drawer is flimsy and after pulling out one time is now lop sided.

buyer beware

Kyriaki 10/19/2019

Stove I originally wanted was on backorder and salesperson suggested one that was comparable and immediately available. I requested stainless trim to match other appliances and was told that only the glass on stove door would be in black. When I received stove the stove top was black which I reluctantly accepted. The only stainless on it was backsplash, oven door handle and drawer on the bottom of range. To my dismay the stove top leaves smudges when trying to clean and the stainless leaves fingerprint smudges as soon as you touch it. I can deal with all the above but what has me perturbed is that the trays under the burners do not come off for easy cleaning and after the first use the black paint on them has bubbled up as if it is burnt.

Works fine

Phil74501 10/7/2019

I've read several bad reviews/complaints...like the temp sensors on the burners. I've never had a single problem with them not working. The only problem I have with the stove is the door for the storage area at the bottom of the stove. Some reviews I came across said it's flimsy...it is. It seems as if it isn't on any kind of rollers or guides or anything. You pull it out and it just drops onto the floor. Other than that, not a problem with it. I would buy it again without hesitation.

The digital display has a plastic overlay covering the membrane buttons, which has a somewhat tacky appearance when the light reflects off of it (which is most of the time). We wish they offered smudge proof stainless steel for coil style heating element range tops, but apparently they do not.

After only one month of use, one noticeable flaw

Ann304 9/23/2019

I purchased the range only a month ago, so it is too soon to judge its overall relability. However one flaw stands out. Both front and back right side burners are not level, when both circular plates and coils are correctly in place. I first noticed this while shallow frying on the large front burner. The cooking oil, when placed in the middle of the frying pan, slid to the left side. To redistribute the oil to enable better cooking, I had to repeatedly lift the pan to redistribute the oil. This has been a consistent finding with this burner. When I used a carpenter's level to measure the surface of this burner, I found it is noticeably off level. The back burner on the right side is also not level. It seems this obvious flaw would be easy to correct in the manufacturing process, and I hope that GE reads this review and makes the correction.

Simple. But, that's what we needed

memyselfandirene 9/20/2019

No. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the new standard smooth top ranges. Nor was it priced any cheaper. But. . , we needed simple. Everything about it is better than the 25 year old coil range that it replaced. It cooks hotter. It heats up faster, cools down a little faster. We are happy enough with it.

No frills range

chrissy3 9/9/2019

On the highest setting I am satisfied with how quickly water will come to a boil for cooking pasta or vegetables. After that it is difficult to keep water boiling at a steady and low boiling point. The display only shows one reading at a time: clock, oven temp, or timer. My other coil ranges had separate display areas for those three readings. The bottom drawer which is advertised as holding extra pans etc. is very flimsy and I have about a third of the baking items in the drawer as I was able to store in any of my old ranges, one of which was a GE range. The range is satisfactory for baking.
