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

Back does not fit flush against the wall. No opening for the plug at a different location.knob panel is not fully closed.Burner tray does not cover openings on knob panel.Tray panel has openings at rear.Drawer pull not deep enough and not heavy enough, also slides are very weak and hard to remove and install.

Nice so far!

Looks great in our kitchen! Love cooking on the griddle even though I ordered the center grate. I like both.

Love, Love it
Love all except the bottom drawer. It does not slide out easily if pulled out any more than half way. Dumb design for this model.

Love this range!
from West Point, IA, United States
Our gas stove blew up and we went back to electric. This is the best stove/oven we have ever had! So many features and it works better and faster than the gas stove did at boiling water even! The warming burner is awesome and helps save time with cooking multiple food items!
from Baltimore, MD, United States
The Stove looks and cooks well. The five burner stove top is a plus.
Best Feature - the super burner!

Had a GE previously that lasted for 15 years with no issues. So my obvious first choice was another GE product. So far I have been very pleased with the performance. I enjoy baking and like the fact that I can use two racks to bake at one time.
