My wife and I recently remodeled our kitchen and decided to switch from an electric range to propane. We wanted a traditional white appliance to match our chosen decor. This GE stove combined the features (color, convection oven, sealed burners and that neat little griddle) at a price that didn't break the budget. The learning curve switching from electric to gas was no problem. This appliance has a stovetop that produces fast even heat which reduces instances of burning meals and allows us to use cast iron cookware, something that is discouraged with an electric ceramic stovetop. Cleaning the stovetop is very easy and there are no hidden tight spaces for grime to accumulate. We tested the oven with an oven thermometer and found that after preheating the oven is spot on temperature wise although preheating does take longer than it did with out old electric oven. Cakes, cookies, pies and a turkey all cooked perfectly and according to recipe times. My favorite part for last - that griddle. It has made me a pancake master. After owning this appliance for a few months we are very pleased with this purchase and would gladly recommend it.

I was initially very happy with this stove, but after using it for several months I have found some huge flaws. Pros - Quick boil burner - Ability to slide pots and pans across the burners - The easy of cleaning - Appearance Cons - General design - Heat rolls off this stove to the point of it raising the temperature by 10 degrees in the kitchen, fine in the winter, but not so great in the summer when it is 110 outside - The burners are high which does produce a great cooking surface, but the back of the stove was not raised to account for the high burners so it is uber easy to scratch the stainless steal on the control panel - The high burners also allow an insane amount of heat to roll off the stove - The oven allows so much heat to escape that the microwave above the stove can be used as a warming oven without it being on at all (a whole stick of butter will melt completely) - The oven temperature is not consistent, after being on 30 minutes the temp difference is 25 degrees and after 30 minutes the temp difference continues to grow to about 50 degrees - By no means is this a true convection oven, the fan rarely to never comes on - The middle burner looks great, but it is effectively useless since it is too small to cook much on at any one time The following are not design flaws, but factors that should be taken into consideration for those with children that are actually expected to learn to cook, people 5'2" and under, and those with arthritis/weak grip. - The grates are ridiculously heavy and large and cannot be soaked in a normal, two sided deep sink; they are so large it is actually hard to handle them at all - The stove is deep so it is hard for the back burners to be used by those whom are 5'2" and under I am very disappointed with the design flaws as I will have the stove at least another 9.5 years. The one thing I do know is my next appliance will not be a GE.

Looks great with faults

Comments about GE 30" White Free-Standing Gas Range:
This range looks beautiful and matches my other appliances. The stovetop heats up and cooks very quickly. The black glass stovetop is a chore to keep clean. I have to constantly clean it with a special cleaner to remove the scuff marks that happens everytime I place a pot on the stove. My last GE range had a glass top that was easier to mantain. I wonder why they used this material for the top? The bottom storage drawer is ridiculusly hard to open. They should have put a handle on it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Stove came with the house, I am used to gas stoves so it is taking awhile to get used to this one. Have no complaints, oven cooks very well.
Love the look, beautiful.

One day old and I love it, so far....the timer beeper needs to be louder, is the only thing that bugs me.
So much to love

This range works so well for our family of four. The five cooking areas include three that have dual size choices, so I can customize the heat according to the size of pan I am using - just great! The oven works well and it looks beautiful - very happy with the purchase.

I have always loved gas stoves but this is by far the best layout I have seen. Easy to clean, the middle skillet is a fantastic addition too! The slate finish cleans magnificently too from fingerprints! The nobs come off the front for easy cleaning as well!

The range and oven work great! I'm not wild about some details of the oven/timer button controls (not being able to see the timer while oven is preheating, having to reset the oven from 350 instead of where we last used it) but they are minor complaints.

Bought this for my new home. Enjoy being able to utilize the whole top the stove with the large burners and grates.
