Comments about GE Freestanding White Gas Convection Range:
The burners on this stove are great. There is an assortment of sizes and btus which makes cooking lots of things at once easy. The high powered front boils really quickly, which is great for canning. There is also a low simmer burner which works well too, and a long central burner for oversized pans or fish poachers. The grates are cast iron, and very sturdy. The only problem I have with the top is the surface doesn't clean well. The burners are sealed, so that's not the problem. It's as if the enamel they used on the stove top can't quite manage the heat that is put out by the big burners. Stuff gets burned on, and it doesn't come off, or it leaves stains. The instructions say not to use abrasive cleansers, but there is no other way to get this thing clean. The other issue I had was with the oven. I bake a lot, and have had convection ovens in the past. Convection ovens are supposed to bake faster, but this one bakes slower! It takes 1 1/2 hours to roast a chicken, which in my old convection oven took an hour. Muffins that are supposed to take 20 minutes take 35. The other issue is browning. I try to use heart healthy recipes, but I've found that if I substitute eggwhites for whole eggs, things don't brown properly. I'm not sure why that is, but it happens. I had a service person come to look at the oven, and it is keeping the right temp and circulating air properly, so I'm not sure about why this is happening, but it is different from my old oven. Overall, I'm happy with the stove, and the burners are a big upgrade from my old one. I just hope I get used to the oven soon.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

When the oven is done preheating a alert is sounded. Problem is that it is so soft I can't hear it. Also, when the oven is on the display shows the oven temp which would be fine except it displays where the clock displays. So you have no idea what time it is, etc. there should be a option to "recall" either the time or the oven temp. I haven't really cooked much since I got this but so far so good.
