Solid Range, But Mind the Knobs

The range is solidly built and looks fantastic, however care must be taken with the knobs. They are easily turned on, not so far as to ignite but far enough to release gas, when reaching for something on a back burner, operating the oven controls or merely rubbing against them when walking by. My previous range was 30 years old so I am still adjusting to electronic ignition vs. standing pilot lights and the various burners sizes and the need to match pot/pan size to burner size. Most modern ranges have this sort of configuration, however I am not yet convinced it is better. The burners tend to heat from the outside, as opposed to my old range which heated from the middle. It took me 40 minutes to cook 1 lb of pasta in a pot I normally used on the power burner, but then realized I needed a bigger pot for that burner. I used a huge stock pot instead and it was on a par with my old range - 20 minutes from turning the water on to draining the pasta. This is a clear indication that the heat is concentrated on the edges of the cookware instead of the center. The oven has worked extremely well, seems to be temperature-accurate and bakes evenly. A 9-inch double layer cake baked in exactly 35 minutes to perfection. I have not yet evaluated the convection option. Broiling must be done on the upper most rack position. Some broiling instructions in the guide indicate using the top or second from the top, however a steak cooked on the second from the top merely baked and did not broil until I moved it to the top position. The grates are extremely heavy and have a fantastic commercial look and is one of the primary reasons I chose this range over a similar competitor's model. I particularly like that the included griddle/grill (of extremely high quality seasoned cast iron) interchanges with the center grate to create a seamless look. Again, the setting recommendations in the guide had to be altered. At high, 1-1/2 lbs of boneless chicken breasts, pounded to an even 1" thickness, cooked perfectly in 16 minutes. The stove remains cool during cooking, so much so that I had to question whether or not the oven was actually hot enough when baking and broiling. The range does emit a lot of fumes during self-cleaning mode and requires significant ventialltion beyond the range hood. All in all, this appears to be a very solid and well-built range.

Clock not working

Love the look of the artistry line,I purchased the frig and the dishwasher which are fabulous but the oven range is another story. The issue is the analog clock on the gas range and the problem started immediately with the first use of the oven. When it heats up the clock would stop working, when it cooled down it would start up again. Now after a year clock just stops working and when I set the correct time again, it won't keep accurate time as other reviewers have also stated. I don't mind that the clock is a bit loud but please just work. The sad part is everyone loves our new kitchen and especially our appliances but I tell them the truth about this range and I wouldn't recommend the artistry line.

Adorable range

By 

from Minneapolis, MN, United States

Comments about GE 30" Black Free-Standing Gas Range:

If you're looking for a retro vibe you'll love this range. It's a great size, not as bulky as my last range. Works great, love the simplicity of the old school clock and knobs. There's no timer and the oven settings are on the dials-they aren't digital. I find it charming and just got used to setting the timer on my microwave to bake something.

Feeling good about the GE Artistry

By 

from San Antonio, TX, United States

Comments about GE 30" Black Free-Standing Gas Range:

Just installed our the new GE Artistry Series Gas Oven (black) in our kitchen and we are pleasantly satisfied. The delivery was fast and friendly. As for the actual gas range its sleek, nice, and has that " retro" old school feeling that we all like.

Love my GE Artistry Series appliances!

By 

from Albany, GA

Comments about GE 30" Black Free-Standing Gas Range:

I have had the Artistry Series gas range and matching refrigerator (both in white) for nearly 3 years now and I am still in love with them. My husband and I restored a 120 year old house and have a large eat in kitchen. These appliances fit perfectly into our circa 1950's theme for the kitchen. The only problem is that the analog clock on the range runs a little slow from time to time. I was attracted to this line of appliances because of the super clean lines. They are both easy to keep clean and live up to my expectations and needs. Since we live in a very rural area, I'm in the kitchen a lot! Both of these appliances keep up with the cooking of 3 meals a day nearly every day of the year! I read on another site where these appliances were geared more towards the younger crowd with an experienced eye towards the buying of appliances. I disagree! This is my second GE gas range, and my third GE refrigerator. As mentioned above, they both have met and exceeded my expectations and needs. I would highly recommend these appliances to those who don't want all the bells and whistles. The simplicity of these appliances are a huge part of their charm and greatly contribute to their excellent functionality.

Love the look

By 

from Salt Lake City, UT, United States

Comments about GE 30" Black Free-Standing Gas Range:

We just purchased our gas range and so far we love it. I didn't expect the handles to be as good as quality as they are, that was a bonus. We mainly bought it for the style. We have an older house and it was just the look we wanted. The oven light button isn't the best style but thats my only complaint on looks. Now I did my homework before buying this product so I was not surprised when the clock didn't work. Yes our stove is brand new, 2 weeks old. The clock works but slows down over time. I don't mind this, but you do have to turn the dial to make it the right time, close to every 3 days. The clock does make a faint hum noise as well.

Old School Cool

By 

from Mid-Michigan

Comments about GE 30" Black Free-Standing Gas Range:

The features on this stove are retro, clean and welcome in my kitchen. It was relatively easy to switch it out from natural gas to LP and I was able to immediately start using all the features, burners, broiler and oven. Reviews I read before purchasing complained about the "noise" of the clock. It's minimal and not a problem. Why not 5 stars? I've only had it under a week!

Perfect addition to our retro kitchen facelift

By 

from Elmhurst, IL, United States

Comments about GE 30" Black Free-Standing Gas Range:

So far, it's performing as expected. Style and features are just what I wanted for our kitchen makeover, but the upper clock area is a little too plain - even a timer or a bit of trim would help. Move the GE logo up top. The preheat indicator is a great bonus feature.
