It is only 11 moths old and the burners are stain and the middle burner is ugly and stained. I have use several cleaning items to get the stains off but nothing gets the stains off. The burner tops or faded and won’t come clean either. The bottom drawer comes off the track all the time and you have to fight to get it back on.
Modern, well-designed gas range that heats quickly and accurately, cleans up easily. My wife does most of our cooking and she absolutely loves this new range. It has the usual automatic oven features, and the controls are simple and straightforward to use -- even when you haven't read the manual. The flat cooktop (the grates meet in the middle) is a very smart touch, and make it easy to move even heavy cookware onto and off of the flame. The 15,000-BTU "power boil" burner lives up to its name and is a huge timesaver; I used it over Thanksgiving to boil potatoes for mashed potatoes, and even on low, it still kept a 16-qt stock pot at a rolling boil. The oven heats quickly and I confirmed its accuracy with an oven thermometer -- it was never more than 25 deg. off, even when when we opened and closed the door several times. To top it all off, the slate finish is beautiful and modern, and cleans up quickly and easily. Bottom line, I can't speak yet to durability, but based strictly on performance and functionality, this is a clear winner. Highly recommended.
ONE INTERESTING NOTE: We had the range professionally installed and tested. Everything looked great. Then the flames started showing more and more orange at the tips -- and nearly convinced me to call GE's customer service ... or the gas company ... until I stumbled onto some very helpful YouTube videos. Turns out ultrasonic humidifiers put minerals into the air that change the flame color, but don't effect combustion at all. When our humidifier runs low on water, the flame turns back to a soft blue. Who knew?
Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, High Quality, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Nice Design
I'm very happy with our new GE gas range. I got the GE gas range just in time for the holidays. In our family, we love to cook. Also, the new slate matches our GE refrigerator and improves the look of our upgraded kitchen. The gas range in slate has the simple and clean look, perfect for the modern household. In terms of usage, we're very please with functionalities and features it has to offer, yet simple to operate. The GE gas range comes with 4 burners (15,000BTU, 12,000BTU, 9,000BTU, 6,000BTU), electronic control panel for the oven, electric starter, clock, time control, self-cleaning, oven light, and storage drawer for your cook wares and more. The larger burner allows us to cook fast, while the smaller burner ensures our foods don't burn. The oven is wonderful. We baked our first cake, and it turned out beautiful. As a matter of fact, we cooked prime ribs for this Thankgiving. Since there are only 4 burners, the top counter is spacious with ample room right down the middle. This is a plus. However, I wish the each burner was a bit closer, not too far out to the edge. The distance of each burner to the outer edge is about 5 inches. I prefer at least 7 inches. This is just my personal preference. Overall, we're very pleased with the appliance. We definitely enjoy it since we got it.
Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish
I am very pleased with this range. It is very stylish and really upgraded the look in my kitchen. I really like GE’s new slate finish it is very stylish and doesn’t show fingerprints like stainless and black appliances do. The stove top burners and the oven heat up really quickly and the simmer burner is going to come in really handy when cooking delicate foods and keeping sauces warm. There is also a huge 15,000 BTU burner that can get a pot of water boiling in a jiffy. Another thing I like is the large edge to edge grates, you can just slide/move a pot or pan over between the burners and it has lots of room for pots and pans of different sizes and when removed it makes cleanup a breeze! I am also really glad its self-cleaning because it is going to get a lot of use! It seems like GE listened to consumers and designed a great range.
