Okay...

Comments about GE Freestanding Electric Range:

I recently had the opportunity to cook on this range and it was an alright experience. I usually prefer gas ranges, so it was an adjustment getting the burners to the exact temperature I wanted. Speaking of burner adjustments, I found the sheer amount of settings available on the knobs extremely confusing. There are burners within burners, and some knobs control more than one burner... It isn't rocket science, but I felt semi-frustrated at first glance. The warming spot is handy, but I don't feel like I will use it often. The inside of the oven is smaller than I had imagined, and it was a challenge getting the racks to a suitable level for the broiler... either too close or too far away when using a broiler pan, which resulted in very burned turkey burgers! :( I do like that the stove top is flat which makes it easy to clean. I also had a hard time finding the timer setting within the menu screen. Overall not super jazzed about this range!

Wish I would have looked inside the oven first

Comments about GE Freestanding Electric Range:

I purchased this GE electric range online after deciding I wanted to have a flat top range and convection oven to replace my old, unconventionally sized, drop-in range. The features I was looking most forward to were more than one larger burner on the stove-top and being able to fit two 9x13 pans in the oven side-by-side.  Regrettably I never looked inside the oven before purchasing and didn't realize the fan for the convection oven sat INSIDE the oven volume and took up valuable baking room in the middle rack positions. If I had known this beforehand I wouldn't have considered purchasing this model.

 I've been pleased with the range and find the burner sizes and quantities meet my needs.  I can't say that I've used the warming spot much.  I had hoped the burners would heat up my pans significantly faster than my previous range, but that hope wasn't fully met.

I find the oven seems to take a while to reach temperature (maybe I'm unrealistically impatient?) and is often noisy while heating up (makes a rattling noise).

This oven comes with enclosed coils and ceramic oven racks which make oven cleaning really simple.

Next range I purchase will be visually inspected first!
