Have had this range for about 5 weeks. I bought it for a rental beach house. Home Depot delivered it and a microwave. The delivery guys were TOP notch. Removed old range with no bumps, no walls scratched - it was perfect. They unboxed the new range outside and brought it in with no bumps or scratches. They installed the new range and spend a good amount of time making sure it was level so that everything cooked/baked evenly. They hauled old range off as well as all packing materials. It's all working perfectly EXCEPT for the quick steam clean of the oven. I baked a couple of frozen pizzas in the oven. A little cheese dripped down to the over floor. After cooling down I scraped the burnt cheese off the floor and used the Quick Steam Clean to remove the rest of the residue. After the 20 minute cycle there was still residue marks on the oven floor. The steam clean did not do the job. I have had the same experience with my new LG range at my full time home. So either this new 'short' cleaning cycle feature does not do a good job or I'm doing something incorrectly. Back to this GE oven. I used the regular cleaning cycle and it did a perfect cleaning job.
My concern about the smooth surface cooktop for a rental is that some renters will not treat the cooktop properly or clean it properly in spite of the instructions I leave. Wanted to put a coil range in but try and find one today. They are being phased out.
All in all I highly recommend this range. I also highly recommend Home Depot delivery service as well as buying a 3 year Home Depot warranty. The warranty provided by HD is serviced by GE no matter what brand you buy at HD. Both sales people at HD (NJ and MD ) told me that the warranty covers anything and everything that can possibly happen to the range. The extended warranty is well worth the money. The best thing about it is that you call HD if you have a problem and they make the service call arrangements. HD has a vested interest in keeping their customers so like that aspect.

We have had this range for almost 1 year. There is now a spot on the cook top where the "enamel" - I know it's not paint, but for lack of a better word, I'll call it enamel - pattern has come off. I assumed it was just a dirty area and I used ceramabryte to clean it (like they suggest), except it didn't come off. Instead, it appears that the actual enamel pattern has (melted?) off - see picture. It's not scratched off, it is actually missing the pattern. The glass itself is perfectly fine. I called for service, but they are (so far) refusing to look at it. I will probably end up filing a small claims court, since there is nothing in the warranty that says they shouldn't fix what is obviously a flaw. I fear for the longevity of this product if this is what happens after less than 1 year. If I get some answers from G.E. I'll update this review, but at this point, I cannot recommend this range and would steer clear.

Excellent value and quality for basic range/conventional oven. Easy to install and adjust height to match counter height. Has all the features needed and more. Easy to use controls. Large oven window and light are great. Took awhile to adjust to proper heat settings on radiant glass cooktop vs. the old coil cooktop. Also need extra caution to avoid scratching glass. Overall great unit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NovaBrewer Good middle of the road range
Nice set of features for the price. I really like the variable burner sizes. The glass top is easy to clean. We used the free delivery/removal service and we were very pleased. Good middle of the road range.

We have had this range for three months and so far it is working great! Oven temperature is accurate and there are lots of burner size options. The glass surface is much easier to clean than the old coil stovetops!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Suzie I LOVE MY STOVE
The stove was exactly what I wanted and it cooks your food up even and fast. Directions for use is simple. I love the oven space and depth.Clean up is quick, simple.THE DOWN FALL: GE for North Easter Ohio has a VERY and I mean VERY unreliable delivery system and they WILL NOT work around your delivery schedule AT ALL. I specifically told them that I am never available between 10 and 4 pm and they insisted on delivering my stove to my house at 2 pm! I had to call off, and then they got delayed a day due to inclement weather.. Get this: The delivery system even REFUSED to give me my stove until that 2 pm time frame was available. WHICH WOULD BE NEVER! They seriously held my stove until I got Home Depot involved and they personally brought me my stove. I was THREE DAYS LATE on my stove and cooking out of a toaster oven!!! I was ticked that the GE Delivery service REFUSED to give me my stove! Complaints were made to the big shots of GE of course. Then when GE services called me for an "up date," They kept calling me at 2 pm!!! WHEN I AM NOT AVAILABLE! If you buy this stove- which is an excellent stove, either plan on picking up the stove your self from the Home Depot store, or pay Home Depot to deliver it. DO NOT waste your time with the GE Delivery services unless you really have too.

Nothing fancy, but it's a good stove. We had an older version of this stove that had lasted a long time. One feature I miss is that when the oven is preheating, the old stove showed you how hot it was. This one just says "pre" on the display. The burners get very hot very quickly.
