Nice looking range
4 Star Review   By dsmulvey on Home Depot - Apr 30, 2013   

Works well. The middle griddle burner is very lame. My husband replaced the orafice with a larger opening and now we're getting a much better flame. The front left burner didn't bring water to a rolling boil, so he replaced that orafice too and it works better. Could be that we are at high altitude which can really mess with how hot a flame can get. The quality of the range is pretty good. The metal seems to be of a cheaper material and I think it could be easily dented. The convection oven is a nice feature and I love the "seamless" grates. I like the storage drawer too for the pans I don't use often, although I wish it was also a warming drawer. On a side note, the griddle in the picture does not come with it. Overall, a very nice range for the price.

Possible internal electrical issue - beware!
2 Star Review   By Janey19 on Home Depot - Apr 29, 2013   

I've been using this range for just over 4 months now, and while the performance is fine and it's easy to clean, I've had 2 oven light bulbs burn out already. When the first one burned out I just figured we were unlucky. But when the second burned out less than a month later, I called GE's warranty service in case there's some electrical issue inside causing the burnouts. They came out, inspected, and said light bulb warranties are only for 30 days, and said they think "vibrations" might be causing the lights to burn out. Well, I live in a quiet neighborhood, have no pets, and don't bang my pans on the stove. I also don't live in an earthquake or construction zone, so I'm not sure what "vibrations" could be causing the problem, unless there's some internal issue with the stove. Beware. I am crossing my fingers I was just twice unlucky, but may be purchasing light bulbs in bulk or learning to live without one.

Disappointed! sorry GE
3 Star Review   By CallMeChuck on Home Depot - Dec 22, 2012   

We purchased this unit very recently during Thanksgiving sale, which was delivered by a online order. After delivery /install we did not check or use the oven after they installed it, only the stove till then. My wife decided to use the oven to find that its is not getting activated, and to our surprise the the oven light is not even turning ON . Tried to call GE customer support (maybe about 8PM EST) and obviosuly they were closed and thing we could do was to create a trouble ticket for repair man to come out and fix it. We got an appointment for technician's visit the following week, though all we wanted to know was if someone could tell us what could be wrong over the phone. Anyway the technician turns up the next week who is a sub-contractor for GE and was one of the rudest person with an attitude as per my wife. He starts with the blame that "...you did not read the manual" and cheks it out and says that the bulb is blown.(Nice for a brand new unit which we didnt even use !!!) and when asked if he can replace it, says an insultive "No" and offered no tips whatever even after explaining that the unit is brand new and was never used. oh well, he goes away and we thought it s just $2.00 bulb, even it was never used. Today(December 22, 2012) I purchased a replacement appliance bulb and to our total disappointment, the oven light stays on all the time!!!(it wont turn off at all). And obviously GE support is not available and now I had schedule for the technician to come out on January 2nd to take a another look...I cant believe this!!!.(and GE online reschedule feature does not work) What a turn off with this purchse.(as of now the only turn ON is the bulb in this oven !).

5 Star Review   By RMWis on Home Depot - Dec 19, 2012   

Hi, We're very pleased with this purchase. It's got all the features we saught, convection, large burner, grill burner. Plus, the continuous iron grates and large knobs gives it an upscale look. Knob turn quality and overall look and feel is fantastic. Minor things: Turning dials to zero may allow micro-flames go out, and the center griddle burner really should be more centered. We like the oven.

Buy this stove!
5 Star Review   By itsme2 on Home Depot - Apr 17, 2012   

This unit replaced a 10 yr old builders grade gas stove. I really, really love this range! The oven is large enough to cook a large turkey, and all the sides at once! Love the coated oven shelves, soo much easier to wipe off! The oven is very true to temp. My husband tested it with his heat gun thingy. And VERY important to me was that the when the oven is on, it DOES NOT heat up my whole house! The convection feature is nice, but I really don't use it that much. As for the stove- the power boil is excellent! Boils a pot of noodles in no time! The simmer burner works wonderfully as well. The only disappointment was the center oval burner. It has such low output, that even on it's highest setting it will NOT boil a large pot of water. My husband plans on tinkering with the gas output and changing that soon. I have found that after cooking on the stove, there seems to be more of a splattery mess over the entire cooktop surface than my old stove. Which is a bigger process with this one. Since the 3 piece grate system is very heavy, they all need removed before cleaning the surface. And the black surface will show any and all specks of food and dust. So I have to clean it ALOT more. Hope this review was helpful to someone.

5 Star Review   By bluetalu on Home Depot - Sep 30, 2011   

I love the grates that are even across the stove and the burners cook so evenly. The stove temp is accurate and fast. Love the convection option that converts the temp for you. Looks great and I love that the bottom storage drawer doesn't have a handle that sticks out.
