    Range works great. Took a little time to get used to the grid top, a little hard to move heavy pans from one burner to another. Very attractive and nice addition to the kitchen. Oven works great, but no broiler pan included with range.

    The grates are too high above the burners, and it takes twice the time that my old stove did to cook food on the burners; the oven heat is inconsistent -- seems to be fine for meat but baking is a disaster. Cakes fall in the middle, cream pies need to bake 10-15 minutes longer than the recipe calls for. The broiler on high is not hot enough and the food dries out. The drawer in the bottom is so flimsy you can't put anything in it other than 1 or 2 lids - nothing that has any weight. Overall, I wish I had my 20 year old Kenmore back.

    Great basic range for the money

    By bird42

    from New York, NY, USA

    Comments about GE 30" JGB281MERBS CleanSteel Free-Standing Gas Range:

    If you're on a budget, this is a great no-frills range. I tested the oven with a thermometer and the temp is right on target. The grates stand pretty high on the range top. At 5'6" I have no problem with them, but if you're short, you might want to see the stove in person first. The continuous grates are a nice feature. It's convenient to place hot pans from the oven on them. Easy to clean and very nice looking range.

    Does the job!

    By Marcia56

    from Lawton, MI 49065, USA

    Comments about GE 30" JGB281MERBS CleanSteel Free-Standing Gas Range:

    Needed to replace our bisque range and GE is about the only company that regularly features this color. Not everyone wants stainless steel. It is so easy to clean the cook top by removing the continuous grids and the self cleaning oven works great. You can clean up small boil overs by adjusting the cleaning time. I would recomend this stove to anyone who doesn't have a hugh budget.

    Good Stove

    By Chad13

    from Ohio

    Comments about GE 30" JGB281MERBS CleanSteel Free-Standing Gas Range:

    This replaces an old GE stove...so far, so good. I like the self-cleaning capability, as well as the space to hold baking sheets under the stove. I wish the buzzer were a lot louder, but I really like the different burners, which makes cooking a lot easier.

    Love This Range

    By Mary10

    from Rochester NY

    Comments about GE 30" JGB281MERBS CleanSteel Free-Standing Gas Range:

    I always look for GE products as they are made in the USA. Thank you for keeping jobs in the USA. The best thing about this range is the height. I love that it is taller than our old range. I also like the fact that there are no drip pans to mess with and the fact that the broiler is in the oven (not under the oven like some gas ranges). It has all the necessary features, self-cleaning, quick boil burner. For the price I have very happy with this range.

      Nice Quality - Good Features

      By Lb19

      from Chicagoland, USA

      Comments about GE 30" JGB281MERBS CleanSteel Free-Standing Gas Range:

      Nice Range. I really like the different sized burners. It really helps to be able to have the smaller size for simmering and larger size to get things boiling faster. I also like the grates going fully across the top. It makes sliding pots around easier. Only thing I would change is the volume of the timer's buzzer. It is too quiet. I'm very pleased with my purchase.
