My wife just retired and I guess the buy out money was burning a hole in her wallet and she always wanted a stainless steel gas stove so we went shopping. The big box retailer had a large selection. she wanted the style with the cooking grates that went across the entire top. She avoided the ones that had the grates extending all the way to the very edge fearing the little grandkids could reach up and touch the heated grate. The GE grates locked into place better and were inside the stove tops edge about 1 1/2 inches. Also the drawer on the bottom had a very solid sound and feel, compared to all the other brands, when pulled in and out. At the time, we didn't know if this would make a big difference but we entertain the family at all the holidays and the oven was slightly smaller (5.0 cubic feet) and hoped the meat and baking dishes would all fit together. That was our only concern. Otherwise it has been a great stove!

With my old faithful GE range/oven dead, I had to chose a new one. Naturally I wanted to reproduce the great experience I had with my old appliance. I decided to upgrade to 5 burners, and with no time to go to the store, I based my choice on internet pictures. I thought the 5th burner was round and small and was very surprised to see that it is oval and very long. I have no use for a griddle burner and it gets in the way of cleaning. But I did not want to go through the hassle of an exchange. Aside from that, the burners are larger than the previous model I had from GE and unfortunately the stove is not as convenient. The oven performs well (after getting rid of those terribly toxic fumes). Less than 2 months after my purchase I already have scratches on the surface of the range that don't go away. My previous GE model had a much higher finish quality.

Comments about GE 30" Free Standing Gas Range:
This is a solid, sturdy range that has lots of power in the burners - with the exception of the center griddle burner. If you use it, you need a very small griddle, otherwise it is impossible to heat all of the items (like pancakes) that cover the griddle's surface. That being said, I still like the range very much. Knobs are metal and feel very sturdy and oven works great.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Delivery men were awesome.
Stove is awesome

Love the stove- the simmer and quick boil burner make cooking easier!
So far, so good.
Bought this a month and a half ago and so far I like it. It's easier to clean than my previous range. I have used the fifth burner for large pans and it seems to be fine. I needed a range that had the storage on the bottom. I have not yet used the broiler.
great range at a good price

Good, Basic Range
from Silicon Valley, CA
Purchased a month ago as a replacement for a unit with a burned out circuit board. This unit is very basic. It meets all minimum expectations and is a good, average mid-range product. The oven/broiler controls are tricky to figure out & the oven racks are extremely difficult to slide in & out. Like the extra hot big burner, the center burner & the small, low BTU burner. Wish the oven light would turn on when the door is opened. I hope it lasts longer (10 years) than my last range.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have enjoyed using this stove ~ Wish I could have replaced all the appliances in the Slate finish but alas, White will have to do for now, for budget reasons ~ I do wish the 2 sided griddle had come with this model
Best stove and oven I ever had

I love this stove. It is great... I tell Steve every time I cook or bake how much I love it. I love the quick burner for boiling and the oven is so large... Excited to cook Thanksgiving dinner now... Great appliance...
