Comment:
I love the look of this appliance I'm just disappointed in the smell of gas from the oven! Had the repair man out and he thought it might need an adjustment but had to check with GE before any changes are done. I don't like the idea of breathing gas!

Comment:
The varying burners allow you to simmer and heat things up quickly. I haven't used a gas stove in many years and you do need to adjust your cooking a little. I found the handles on the pots get hot quickly so be careful not to put the burner on too high. I find it's best to clean spills up quickly so as not to let them burn into the stainless steel. Large spacious oven with the option to use the lower small oven is great if you make something small and it cooks quicker.<br />- the griddle is great and is easy to clean<br />Cons: <br />- the stainless steel top will tarnish and does scratch easily but I think that applies to any stainless steel tops that you purchase. <br />- the control panel is very sensitive and it's easy to switch off the stove without realizing, so do keep an eye out of this (it does beep to warn you).
