This is my first smooth top range. I love everything about this product! The various sizes of the burners and the warming burner make cooking large meals super easy! I purchased this product on Christmas Eve and just in time to cook my annual Christmas breakfast for the whole family. I didn't even have to read the manual to figure out how to use it. The knobs and buttons are clearly marked and very easy to use! I love having 3 racks in the oven! I put several things in the oven at once and used the convection and the biscuits cooked evenly, and everything else was perfect, too! The warming drawer is one of my favorite features. It is very roomy and holds 2, 13X9 pans, with room to spare. It keeps food at the perfect temperature and even has various temperature settings for the warming drawer, also. Not only does this range meet every need, it looks awesome, too! It has a large window for viewing the food in the oven, the shiny smooth top is easy to clean, and the large, curved door handles are easy to grasp. I would recommend this product to anyone! It's well worth the money!

I bought this unit Aug 2012. I absolutely hate the oven. The temp is not accurate at all whether I am using the convection or regular oven. Am I the only one whose temp is inaccurate? I have used an inside temp gauge to verify the temps are off. I know it is accurate. My old oven never wavered when set on 350 deg and I miss it. This unit cyles off and rarely cycles back on to maintain the temp. So when I do check it, I find the range if off by 30-40 degs lower than set temp. My internal thermometer confirms this. Sometimes when it's set at high temps like 425, its actually 475. It is NOT consistent and I hate it. Unfortunately I can't aford to buy another one or I would. The top burners work well and I like them but I just can't get over the oven temps. And I love to cook!

Comments about GE 30" JB705 Black Free-Standing Electric Range:
I purchased this stove 1 year ago and have been satisfied except for the cooktop. It is used daily, but no abused. I clean with the cream cleaner and it has not scratched, but it has a gray discoloration on the cooktop around the elements. It doesn't heat evenly either. Oven works fine.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have only had this stove for a day. After viewing the features, using the stove and oven, and reviewing the ratings on Consumer Reports Web Site, I must say that I am very happy and satisfied that I purchased this product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Love this oven! Why would you want SS?
from Hudson, WI
Love this range. First convection oven we've owned. pre-heats more quickly, even temps--can bake cookies on two racks at the same time. Never could with our old oven. Easy to use, like the warming zone, and the control to adjust heat to size of pane.
from Dallas, TX
We bought this range about 6 months ago and has been working great. It heats up food quickly and and easy to keep clean.
from Tarpon Springs, FL
We purchased this stove 2 months ago. So far so good. The oven works great and I love the convection feature and the elements heat quickly. So far only negative's are the stove top is white and the pans leave marks on the cook top and must be cleaned every time I use it and the timer alarm could be louder. It seems to be quality construction and we are very happy that it was made in America!
Broken in less than four months.
from Mount Joy, Pa
We have only had this range for less than four months and already the burner that has three elements the smallest one in the middle isn't working already. Now we have to deal with service and getting it repaired.
from Malvern, AR
I've owned this range for a few months now and I love the flecked almond colored cook top, so easy to clean. The self cleaning oven is wonderful!! The only negative thing I could say is that the oven takes quite a long time to preheat, but I suspect that could be because of how big it is, which I love, so it's worth the extra preheat time.
Great features - Easy to Use
from Everett, WA, USA
I am extremely impressed by this range! Easy to use. Love the convection cooking - amazing results and a very quiet fan. My one regret is that I didn't buy this appliance sooner!
Great stove for the price
from Richmond, Virginia
We have had the stove approximately 8 months and we couldn't be happier. Beautiful appearance, great cooking. Love the different size burners on the range and they heat up super fast and cool down even faster. The convection oven takes a little longer to heat up than the last stove I had, but it does cook a tad quicker. I have been satisfied with all the features. The warming drawer was used several times during the holidays when we had large family gatherings, nice feature to have. I highly recommend this stove.
from Georgia, USA
Have just had this range a few weeks, but burners heat up very quickly. Makes me realize how ineffective my old stove was! We opted for the convection for quicker cooking. Have only used it a couple of times for regular cooking, so have not had an opportunity to try a big roast or cake, but looking forward to that. Like the fact that there are knobs and not all push button.
