The GE JB750SJSS features five cooktop elements, including a dual-power 6-inch/9-inch one that can deliver up to 3,100 watts of power and a 12-inch/9-inch one that can deliver 3,000 watts. The other elements include two 6-inch burners that deliver up to 1,200 watts and a 6-inch center warming element that delivers 80 watts. The 5.3-cubic-foot oven offers modes for convection as well as conventional cooking -- and the convection setting is reported as excellent by those who bought it specifically for that feature, backing up CNETs findings. It`s a little smaller than you`ll find on some competing ranges, but still should be sufficient to handle the needs of a typical family At this price you won`t find too many extra features, but a steam clean feature draws some kudos. The JB750SJSS has a stainless steel finish, but you can also find the same stove in a variety of other colors, including white as the GE JB750DJWW (Est. $950), black as the GE JB750DJBB (Est. $950), slate as the GE JB750EJES (Est. $950), black slate as the GE JB750FJDS (Est. $1,100) and black stainless as the GE JB750BJTS (Est. $1,100).
There’s something amazing going on here, and it’s not just the Wi-Fi capabilities of this smart electric range. It’s the induction cooktop. Induction is simply the best around when you’re working with electric options, and that means the price on this one is hard to fight with. On top of that you receive a great 5.6 cubic foot oven underneath. It’s smooth, easy to control, and there’s even something special about it. The whole thing also syncs with your phone, allowing you to control the oven without even being in the room. All of this is put together in a super-stylish minimalistic design. The brushed stainless steel exterior makes it look exactly like what it is: the absolute pinnacle of electric range innovation.
If you want a pro-style range at a price that`s a little lower than many professional-grade ovens, look no further than the Frigidaire Professional FPEH3077RF (Est. $2,070). It`s an Editors` Choice and Product of the Year winner at Reviewed, with an overall score of a perfect 10 out of 10, and is named the top electric range after testing at Good Housekeeping. The FPEH3077RF has the look of a slide-in but will fit into the space of a freestanding model. "It`s a handsome range, covered in a flat expanse of smudge-proof stainless steel and topped with a black electric rangetop," says Reviewed`s Kori Perten. "Handles are shiny and set into pro-style brackets—a look that stands on its own without mimicking pricier models."
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.
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."
When choosing one, there are a few things you must consider. First check the space available in your home. You must also consider how big your family is. This device comes in all shapes and sizes. Some are big and free standing while some are smaller and placed on tabletops. The free standing ones are perfect for big families, and they are great for cooking a large amount of food. They are also perfect when using wider pans. The free standing kinds also have ovens for baking the kids’ favorite snacks. For the ones who have just started a family or for those with small families with tinier spaces, the tabletop versions are the perfect option, since they consume only a little space and can be stored anytime you want.
