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.

Why has oven design gotten worse in the past fifteen years?
We bought a JB640DRWW to replace our 15-year-old GE JBP75, a very similar model which we were very happy with. Based on online reviews, we opted for this model, but now that...Read complete review

Comments about GE Profile 30" Stainless Steel Free-Standing Gas Range:
Bought this a month ago and it has been just exactly what we wanted. GE support was great when we had questions at the time of installation. We decided to go with a simple, some would say retro model and we are so glad GE makes just the one. Well made and performs up to the level we hoped.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love my retro Stove.
from New York, NY, United States
the stove looks great but, it is a little cheap, the rubber on the lower door is broke already , need to order a new rubber, I really like the look of the stove !
A great oven!
from New Jersey, United States
We chose this oven for its simplistic , and elegant design. No computer boards to have to worry about breaking down in the future, and since we do not need all the bells, and whistles of timers, and digital readouts. This oven was perfect, It has a really big oven space with a large oven window, the range,oven knobs, and oven door have a stainless steel look, and feel, the clock is analog,and can be set with a simple twist of the outer bezel, the oven really cooks great. and the cool, yet retro design makes it unique, and could fit in any kitchen.
Retro Style Modern Function
from Grover Beach, Ca
Have had range for 1 month. It is functional and sleek. Only complaint is that there is no timer, but we can use that feature from the microwave. Love the vintage looking clock. I had my first spill over in the oven and it smoked up the kitchen within seconds. I don't remember that being an issue with my last range, but I added foil, so next time, I can quickly remove the foil to avoid the flare up. Lastly, the range dials have to be on a higher flame than my last range. Overall, a satisfied customer.
Love the look!
from Louisville, KY, United States
We are very happy with the look of this range. I love the stainless steel knobs and handle. Performs very well! appearance great except General Electric insignia was put on crooked and oven knob isn't perfectly straight.
love this oven
from Rochester NY
We've had this oven for 3 months, and so far I love it! It's very simple, which is exactly what I was looking for and while I love the analog clock, it has stopped working many times already--the reason for the 4 stars. Otherwise, this oven is exactly what I was looking for--bakes beautifully, easy to clean, and the high BTU burner is awesome.
Absolutely love this thing!
Makes cooking so much fun and so many features. I've never had a nicer range and convection oven.
