This product has great features
we purchased this range to replace an older model. We are brand loyal to GE and this range has met our expectations.

Product ok except for timer signal
Cannot hear timer signal unless exactly in front of unit. Only rings once instead of ringing until I shut it off so if I don't hear first ring, food gets overcooked. Not good!

My GE eletric range is a good product at a fair price. The one feature I would change is the temperature setting control for the oven. You cannot just put in the temperature you want but rather have to hold down the temp. key and wait until it gets up to the desired temperature - it would be easier to just put in the desired temperature using a number pad. The electric stovetop is easy to keep clean and heats evenly. I am pleased with the overall look of the range. I would recommend this product to others looking for a regular home range for daily use.

storm put out old range
I purchased this to replace a range that went out from an electrical storm. It was one of few that came in the biscuit color.

Replaced Kenmore with this Similar GE Smoothtop Range
I HAD to purchase this range at a very bad time in my life:
My best friend /sister died plus we had a bad storm a week before Christmas and an electrical outage/brownout put my 3- year old Kenmore oven out (in the range). So it and a lot of other electronics, and anything plugged in was damaged.
The insurance company said I could replace with as close to the same as I had, so this GE range was it.
It doesn't seem quite as insulated as my old one you would have to stand back after opening the door to let the excess heat out, or you'd burn your eyebrows off. So, I thought this one would be the same, but it doesn't seem to be. BUT: This GE has a thermostat the owners can adjust by themselves. So, maybe I need to do that? I have only had this GE for 3 weeks and have not read the owners manual as yet. (Too busy...)
It does have a deeper bottom drawer though, as my outlet, which did just lie on the floor on the back wall, now needs to be placed up further on the wall. A chore I have not gotten to as yet.
I almost got a Whirlpool as I needed to match the biscuit color of the other appliances but it did not have the "Hot Cooktop" warning light on it, so I upgraded to this GE. It does only have one main light to warn of a hot cooktop where I did like my old range which had a small red light above each dial which would only go off after it was cool to touch. So, I do miss that. And the oven light on this GE is a touch control whereas my old one had a switch to turn it on. This GE has a switch, but it is for the dual-element.
All in all, I am happy with this GE range.

Have only used less than 1 month and have found everything from the oven, broiler and cooking on the burners, to cleaning up the smooth top to be a joy. We use Weimans smooth top cleaner and love it. The top always looks brand new and the storage drawer is exactly what we needed since we lack storage space. Would highly recommend for a stove with these features and an attractive price, plus it looks good

This product has one small flaw......
I purchased this range to replace a 1999 model that suffered a severe crack across the ceramic cooktop. It was difficult ordering a bisque color, as it seems stainless and/or black appliances are all the rage now. I am very unhappy as to how long it takes for the oven to pre-heat vs. my older model. The old oven took about three minutes to come to temperature, while the new one takes almost ten full minutes due to its hidden heating element. I have owned this range for almost six months now, and I still don't know how to operate the oven controls without difficulty. So far, the only plus is that this model is easier to keep clean.
