GE includes a reversible griddle for you to use with the center burner. One side is flat, and the other has raised ridges.

This side of the griddle was great for grilling meats.

Foods like grilled cheese sandwiches cooked well on the smooth griddle surface.

The GE roasted a pretty good chicken, though it wasn't as great as birds from other ovens.

I baked these biscuits simultaneously on convection mode. The biscuits in the top-left picture baked on a higher rack than those in the photo beneath it. The illustrations at the right show the brownness of the biscuits.

Biscuits baked more evenly on traditional mode without the convection fan, as pictured here. The burgers on the right got slightly browner.

The numbers in this picture show the average time it took for each burger to reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit under the oven's broiler. The burger located in the back center cooked the fastest, indicating that this is the hottest part of the broiler.
