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.

When using the range, if there is any air movement in the kitchen from either a fan (including the microwave hood fan) or the air conditioning, it wreaks havoc with the flame from the burners, and greatly increases the cooking time. Even with the power boil burner, it will take FOREVER to boil water. Yes, I know, we should turn off the a/c and the fans to fix the problem, but of course by doing so, it makes the kitchen unbearably hot. My other issue with this model is that we chose this model over a much less expensive model because the specifications/features claim that it has a safety lockout. Just because the keypad has a lockout, that is not a safety lockout, because the gas controls for the range (top) can still be turned on and operated by a child. Furthermore, there is no lockout for the oven door, unless it is in cleaning mode. Again, with small children, this is not adequate.

Comments about GE 30" Free Standing Stainless Steel Gas Range:

This is my first double oven and I am so happy with this purchase. The kids can use the small oven for their pizza and chicken nuggets and I use the convection oven for everything else. Sunday dinners are a breeze with the burner that you can select a size and the center warmer. keeping it clean has been no problem and learning to use was very easy. I researched ovens a while before deciding on this one and I was not disappointed! Thank you GE!

Great product for price.

Comments about GE 30" Free Standing Stainless Steel Gas Range:

We were desperate for a new stove. The old oven kept shutting off in the middle of baking. Wanted something simple; we hadn't used half the features on the old stove. Loved this, initially, for the simplicity, but after getting accustomed to the differences from the old one to this, I love it more. The stovetop is easy to keep clean; only the two large pieces to remove for clean-up. The oven light is NOT an automatic turn on with the opening of the oven door, and the door opens with a jerk but I'm okay with both issues. Burners have nice strong flames; oven heats evenly...and hasn't shut off yet. It took a little time to get used to the timer versus timed bake buttons atop the unit, but I've mastered it now. Just read that the product is no longer being manufactured...that's sad for some of us who just want to buy a product without all the "bells and whistles".
