Love the powerboil burners, they really speed up the boiling process and yet offer precise control all the way down to simmer. This may sound strange, but I also really like the continuous burner grates. makes it easy to slide pots/pans out of the way, or use it as a surface to set hot plates on, etc most of the "commercial grade" ranges do not have this. the oven is huge and heats up fast. for those of us with young kids, the burner safety cutoff function is nice. it shuts off the master gas supply so you can't accidentally light the burners or fill the house with gas. the owners manual does a poor job explaining how this feature works -- basically you press & hold the safety button for 3 seconds and then wait for 3-5 seconds for it to lock out. to resume normal operation you again press & hold for 3 seconds and then wait 3-5 seconds. the additional waiting is not described in the manual. haven't used the bottom baking drawer yet, but nice to know we have it for thankgiving dinner. one feature I would like to have is the ability to turn off the oven element but keep the convection fan running - to finish cooking food without the oven heat on. our old Viking oven did this, and I used it often. that way you're not kicking on the element during the final minutes of cooking (or if you have to extend cooking time a minute or 2, you can do so without having to reheat the element... just use the convection air etc). I guess it would be nice to have dial controls for the oven instead of push button, but no big deal. frankly I think this range is as functional as any 36" commercial grade range out there. why pay 2-3x the price for something in a residential home?

Bought this back in Dec14. I went with the dual fuel only because I had an electric with a 220 before and didn't want to have to run a new 120 outlet for an all gas stove. It actually works pretty well this way as I was able to run the gas line easily and I prefer the electric oven. Have used the 2nd oven once so far and it does work well for small items...but seems to take a while longer (10min more than main for 400) to get to temperature. As recommended, I ran the self cleaning cycle first. You need to have good ventilation because it does smell and that is expected. But, I have these streaks on my oven window that look like they are between the glass. I can't get them off. Can only see them when I have the oven light on or open the door. Seems like a QA issue maybe. Otherwise, it works fine. Stove top gas burners work well, but some of them do not adjust much when going from 3-4 and so on. Others have also reported this and seems to be as intended. So, don't expect induction level control...but all the burners beats the pants off my old electric. Cleaning the top is a pain as everything seems to show up on the stainless top. Just have to keep up with it. Lastly, I also received the back splash attachment and had to install it myself. NOT a fun project as the screws didn't align properly and when the self clean cycle runs, there is an exhaust streak that shows up on the back splash attachment now that I can't see to get clean. So, another QA design detail issue in my opinion. Overall, a better appliance than my 30yr old electric range, but could use some improvements.

I love the way the stove cooks. I have a challenge with turning the oven off by accident because the controls are so sensitive on the front of the stove. I appreciate the dual heat source and the two ovens.
Very good features, functional design is great.

I bought this unit 3 months ago. I'm still ecstatic about its f\great features
Love it! But....
from Mesa, AZ, United States
Wish it had a middle grill accessory, or a reversible grill/griddle. It comes with the griddle only.. Have used it a couple times but not good for eggs, as they tend to run into the grooves. Make sure you season it before 1st use with a light dusting of olive oil. It will clean up easy for you after that. When using the middle burner with a pan on high gas it doesn't give me that boost of sizzle I'm looking for when cooking meats. I have to move the pan to one of the other burners. I found using microfiber cloths to clean means it won't scratch!! The GE guy who installed told me this. He also said to run the oven on 400 degrees for 4-5 hours before using to burn off all the paint/smells. We did that and it was pretty strong. Remove all animals and kids and have a fan going and windows open. The oven is a little weird when you turn it on. Each time I put it on a temperature to bake it shuts off. I have to do it twice and then it stays on. Haven't used the bottom yet but look forward to it and I'm glad it's not just a warming drawer. Haven't used the meat probe. Have used the broiler and was very happy with the results.
cooks much more evenly than electric and is easier

Took a while to adjust to cooking with gas but have adjusted well. Only problem I have is accidently bumping the control pad and activating a function accidently. Back of stove top would probably be a better location
