I like having the 5th (warming element). I went to our local library and looked at the "Consumer Reports 2013 Buying Guide" before deciding upon a range. This model was a "CR Best Buy" and was also on sale at Sears when I bought it.

Glad I went with GE
We were doing a kitchen remodel and had to replace a 30 years old GE stove. This stove fit our budget. We didn't think we would like the hidden coils, but it turned out fine.
The oven door stayed cool to the touch while we were baking cookies at 375 degrees. It does take a little longer to heat the oven, but we are getting used to that.
I would recomment this stove to anyone needing to upgrade their stove. It is stylish looking and looks great in our new kitchen.

Very good product for the price.
I would recommend this stove. There are lots of great features like the warming burner, 6 and 9 inch combo burner, hearth window. Can't think of anything I need that it didn't have.

This range cooks & bakes well, BUT....
We have had this range since 3/15/13. The recommended procedure for cleaning the glass top has only 1 procedure: use the Cerama Bryte cream as described, EVERY time you want to wipe the top, even if there is no residue to be cleaned off.
This is insane. We have had 3 previous glass top ranges (other brands) and the ONLY time the cream was to be used was when there was residue. The rest of the time a damp cloth could be used. NONE ever sustained damage!
This is so disappointing we are considering returning the stove for a refund and getting a brand with "saner" cleaning options for when the glass top is NOT soiled with residue.

This range is a winner!
I have been using this range for several weeks. I love to cook and bake and this range has plenty of space to handle several pots or casseroles at a time. I clean it regularly with the approved product and the stove always looks shiny and new. The oven does seem to take longer to reach the temperature selected than my prior range.
I wish the drawer was a heavier gage metal as it seems to dip when you pull it out and doesn't glide as nicely as it might.
It's still a great stove and I'm happy I chose it!

GE has great features.
We are enjoying our new range. The versatile burners are great! It is nice to have an oven with no visible element.
