Looking for a new range (split from General Chowhounding Topics board)

Off subject, but I am looking for a new range. What model is your GE?

    That Kenmore is close to the one I have and on sale right now for $679 - I love the 5th center burner, and mine has a griddle plate that I use more than I thought I would for heating flour tortillas, making quesadillas, grilled cheese, etc. Mine has more oven-based features (that I never really use) and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

      I want that for my birthday. 5th burner? Griddle? Oh boy.

        And a bitch to keep clean (it's black w/stainless, not all stainless and I'll never do a black stovetop again) but that griddle is badass.

          Well, maybe I should keep looking, but love those two features. Can't be worse than the cream Whirlpool from probably 1987 (based on the color) that came with the house and has a very capricious oven.

            Ha - you're looking to replace the exact stove I cooked on for 15 years. Like Al B.'s, mine has a power burner and simmer burner as well, and they're great features.

            But, yeah.. the black is a pain. But, on the bright side, it forces me to pay attention to not letting the rice boil over.

      Actually, I meant to say, "my *white* GE gas range..."

      It is similar to this:

      The price has gone up a bit, though, I noticed.

      The only thing I *don't* like about it is those damn little rubber feet on the bottom of the grates. You really have to watch out when you clean, so you don't lose them.
