I love to cook with this oven / stove top! It looks really cool, and bakes / cooks everything perfect. It is easy to maneuver on the stove top even when I have all the burners in use. They disperses the heat evenly. It is very easy to clean. The only think I don't like about it is that when the cook timer off goes off, it will stop the oven temp. And if your food isn't done cooking then you have to reset the oven temp even though the oven is already at the correct temp. It will take the oven a few minutes to register that it is already at the correct temp, and can sometimes mess up the new cook time.

Grates are very high so food takes very long to heat up. The grates are also very slippery, so I'm always afraid something will just slide off the end! The oven and digital controls are great though; probably the only reason I gave it 2 stars.

Cleaning and Cooking time

Comments about GE 30" JGSP28DENBB Black Slide-In Gas Range:
I bought this range 4 years ago. I bought it from a picture online and went to the store to buy it but the store did not have it on display. I loved the look of it. After a few weeks I noticed that it was taking so long to boil a pot of water (20 mins at least). Also I found that it was very hard to clean the top as it has too many groves (it takes me almost an hour if I do a lot of cooking). I am very particular about cleaning my stove (it has to shine). Last year I picked up the grate to clean it and dropped it and it broke in 3 pieces (fortunately I put the pieces back together so that I could use the stove). From my friends that have a gas stove they told me that the grates are too high from the flame and that it is why it takes so long to cook (no saving to me as I use more gas). I meant to write or call you so many times as I am very disappointed. I was wondering if they sell a grate that would be shorter? I always had an electric stove and never had a problem. I bought a gas range because many of my friends and family told me that I would love it. My husband tells me that he is so tired to hear me complain about it, so this is why I write this review. Thank you

Eh, not so hot
from New Jersey
Tremendously loud fan noise, during and after cooking. Shiny stainless top is almost impossible to keep clean, would have preferred a black cooktop by far. Plastic over control panel is cheap and wavy and always streaky. Oven cooks satisfactorily and the design is nice.
Pretty darn good
from Merriam, KS
I've had my range for a year now, and overall it's great; cooks well, the convection option is great for baking, the gas burners heat up nicely without spreading the heat too much (unlike my old gas stove, which put off enough burner heat to make the counters around it warm). Cleaning the top has a few issues - the grates are heavy, which I knew when I bought it, but use has shown they're a bit of a pain when it comes time to clean under them. Cleaning the control panel, as others have noted, will turn buttons on and off as you wipe, and if your cleaning rag is bigger than your hand, it'll turn the buttons on/off when you clean around the dials, too.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Not a good product for what I paid for this.
from Indianapolis, IN, United States
Top of stove is hard to clean, have to remove the grates every time. Very heavy. Oven igniter went out after only one year during a self cleaning cycle. And, took over 4 hours to clean the oven.
from California, United States
Bought this a few months ago it works great. Food cooks evenly burners work well and the convection oven cooks everything evenly. Also look nice and stylish in my new kitchen
Updated Review: Works Great!!!
from San Francisco, CA
I had posted a review earlier that the oven fan was very loud. While you can hear it. It is not the problem that I thought. Turns out my child dropped a pencil in the slot behind the stove. The vibration from the stove caused a loud hum. We got the pencil out and it's fine.. I would buy this stove again. It cooks evenly and looks good. 5 stars!
Cooks great, but it has a loud fan.
It works great...but the fan is soooooo loud. You can hear it from another room. It has only recently gotten this way but it's only 18 months old. I guess I will call a repair man. Sigh.
Bad burner pattern
This range is a disappointment. The burners are arranged in a V pattern, with the largest one in the front right position. Because the front two are close together and one of them is large, you cannot place two medium/large pots or skillets on the front burners at the same time. The large burner blocks access to the simmer burner which is directly behind it. The oven temperature is inconsistent - lower racks are hotter than higher racks.
I have had this range for 10 months and have come to hate it. The black glass surface is very difficult to keep up despite using the recommended products which came with the range. The placement of the controls makes it very easy to accidentally shut off the oven WITHOUT the cook even being aware of it so that you can find that the temp has dropped my 100 or more degrees! Very frustrating!
Beautiful and functional
from Granton, WI
I'm in love with this range. The gas over glass is beautiful and so easy to clean. This range looks and feels like a high-end appliance. Even the knobs feel like quality. The burners were properly set on start up. The convection oven is such a time saver. This range makes you want to cook where I hated it before. Love my new range!
