It is a pity that a product of this category is kind of limited in the convention oven features. I am indeed delighted with the induction range. It gives me the cooking speed and energy savings that I expect from the induction and the easiness to clean and maintain that I expect from glass ceramic ranges. In my opinion, for a product of this range, there is room for improvement in the oven features: - The convection baking temperature is preset to a fixed 350 degrees, which may be perfect to bake beef, but it is too low for other dishes. I cook a lot of fish and some bakery, and I am used to be able to adjust the temperature to each dish requirements. - There is a certain flexibility to adjust the temperature in the form of an offset up or down, typically to correct the tolerance of the actual temperature. First, it is very limited, and still the temperature is low for some of my recipes. Second, you have to readjust this offset for every dish if you need a specific temperature for each. - The menu to control this adjustment as any of the other advanced features is complex and every time you must consult the manual (that you have to download from the internet through a complicated sequence of links). I am a technology geek, so I do not mind navigating the manual, but thre is no way my wife will ever learn anything which is not one touch on the control panel. In the times of usability, this menu is far from state of the art. - Finally, I loved that you can control your oven over the internet using your smartphone. Well, this should be simple just pairing it to your home router and downloading an application, but it requires to buy a control radio that you wire to your router. This makes me think that instead of suing bluetooth or WiFi which are standard with your existing devices, the machine uses some kind of WPAN like Zigbee or Z-Wave. Those technologies are low range radio protocols widely used in home automation for battery powered devices which have low energy consumption ofr a long battery life, but it makes no sense in a power plugged oven, where power is not an issue and the difference in cost of the technology is $2-5, absolutely negigible over the product price. End result, I do not have a connected oven yet. The burden to add more devices, cables, and power supplies in my living room is too upsetting.

not impressed - cooktop no safer than old range

We bought this stove because induction is advertised as safer for children and that the stove won't get hot-only the pot. Simply not true. We also liked the idea of using a griddle pan on the sync'd burners and getting rid of our electric griddle. No such luck! The space under the pot gets as hot as a conventional glass top electric stove. You can't wipe it with a sponge without steam shooting up. As for cooking/baking, cupcakes turned out well; eggs turned out well. Stove does have an audible hum at medium heat and an annoying hum on high heat, which is pretty much only used for boiling water. I have a magnetic wok pan which the stove won't recognize. (Maybe the base is too small? The smallest burner is too close to back of stove to accommodate wok pan!). Griddle feature is useless. I simply cannot find a griddle pan that will work with induction cooking! Have the question posted here but even GE cannot answer! Also, if you need to quickly wipe frying pan between batches of pancakes, for example, stove turns off after a short time so you have to turn it back on again. My husband and I have had the stove for 9 days now and are considering returning it. We just don't see a benefit that outweighs the added cost of this stove and the annoyance of not being able to find appropriate pans. Unfortunately we've already invested in all new pots and pans. Also, contrary to one of the other questions posted, this stove does not come with a meat thermometer. It also doesn't come with a full owner's manual like one would expect, merely an 8 page quick guide. So far, a disappointment.

So far so good
from Gainesville, FL, United States
I've only used this stove a few times. The one induction burner I've used so far does not seem to generate as much heat as the portable one-burner induction cooktop that I have used extensively. Would be nice to have either an amps or temperature feature, rather than just dots to indicate the power level. It's hard to find ranges with induction cooktops, so I was glad to find this one in the slate color that I wanted for my kitchen.

The cooktop is awesome, and the oven cooks everything very quickly. Love it!
Enjoying induction cooking
from Northport, MI, United States
This is a fine Range. The controls are very easy to operate and understand. The convection oven cooks nicely. I have had to discipline myself to keep the shiny cooktop clean. I did not realize it came with controls that you can activate with your iPhone. I have not attempted that yet but that should come in handy. We wanted a range that had the controls in the back so we wouldn't be splashing on them but I guess since the knobs are eliminated that isn't and issue. I'm very happy with my purchase and we've used it for 3 weeks now.

Purchased before Thanksgiving. Gave it the full holiday workout and it took it like a champ. Love the app that tells us when the oven is ready and the timer is done. Induction cooking is wonderful for speed and temp control.
from Saint Agustine, FL
Purchased another brand of Induction Range first. Was VERY noisy when using convection oven. Also, I didn't care for the dials to set temp. Swapped it out for this G.E. and am now completely satisfied. I am used to a gas range, but in this house gas isn't available so this is the next best thing. Boils a large pot of water in less than 3 minutes. Easy to keep clean. Would highly recommend this product if you are looking for a top shelf unit.
New Addition to our Kitchen
We bought this Induction Top and Oven combo in November 2016, and absolutely love it. Although we've not used all of its features, the ones we have used have saved us time, for sure. The best part is how easy it is to clean!
Intuitive to Use, Hot Water in a Second
from South Carolina
The controls are almost intuitive. I love coffee and I get hot water for coffee in about a minute at the full "+" setting on the burners. I also appreciate that the entire surface of the stovetop goes from edge to edge to there are no crevices to get food and grease worked into. One less place I can't reach for cleaning.
from Fairfax, VA, United States
We really love all the features this has! So glad we purchased this! It took a little bit to setup the wifi, so once we deleted our own wifi on the phone and re-added it, it worked like a charm. We bought Henckles pots/pans and they work great!
Oven is very noisy
By Alena K
from Florida, United States
I am very dissatisfied with my new induction range. Cooktop is ok, but oven is very, very noisy. Once I turn on - I get high pitched noise. Today I want to use oven warm function, but I had to turn off because of noise. Yesterday I baked my food on 375 F. Oven made noise all the time and also maybe 45 minutes after turning off. This is not normal. It bother me too much. I thing this only my oven does it. I have read all reviews and no one has the same problem.
