Cooking performance is where a range needs to shine, and the GE JB750SJSS doesn`t disappoint. Professionals and users say the smoothtop cooktop heats up fast and does an excellent job in all areas, from maintaining a steady simmer to quickly bringing ingredients to a rolling boil. CNET gives the special credit for its performance in cooking a test chicken using the oven`s convection roast setting -- saying it compares favorably with what`s seen in ovens costing more than five times as much. "The skin was golden brown and crispy, and the meat was as juicy as could be," Clark says. Broiling performance was a little on the slow side, CNET reports, but at 16 minutes to broil six hamburgers, "this oven was still faster than some more expensive ranges we`ve tested."
The biggest thing separating this one from our favorite is the price. We just felt the limited improvements didn’t quite justify the much higher pricing for the average person. The top is made of smooth glass and has five different burners for different pots and pans. It also lacks a backsplash which gives a sleek look to the whole appliance. The bottom is another pair of ovens, one convection and one standard electric. They’re roughly the same as our top pick, a standard electric upper and a convection lower adding up to a ton of different cooking possibilities. If you’re willing to spend the extra money for much better styling, then go ahead and add this range to your home. It’s great all the way around.
