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.
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.
