Manufacturers have to keep large appliance features to a minimum if they want to keep the price budget-friendly. This means that a range should perform basic cooking tasks well since there are not many bells and whistles to hide behind. GE Appliances has taken this challenge and excelled with the $1,000 GE JB750SJSS, an electric range that cooks food well, is easy to use and is reasonably priced.
GE includes just enough features in this range to help you cook more efficiently, such as a convection fan in the oven and a powerful burner to quickly bring water to a boil. And the JB750SJSS cooks food well -- the oven bakes food evenly, and the convection roast features makes for some of the most delicious chicken to come out of the CNET Appliances test kitchen.
There isn't much in the way of fancy design when it comes to the GE JB750SJSS. And its cook times lag behind similar appliances. But these points barely register as inconveniences when you consider the range's price and performance. The GE JB750SJSS, like the similar GE PB911SJSS we've reviewed, is a solid appliance that is worth consideration the next time you're buying a range.
Basic design in exchange for a bargain
The stainless-steel GE JB750SJSS is a basic large appliance without a lot of frills. The 30-inch wide electric range has a smooth ceramic cooktop with four burners and a warming zone. The oven has 5.3 cubic feet of space, which is a bit smaller than what we've seen from other brands, such as the 5.9-cubic-foot oven on the Samsung NE59J7630SB or the 6.1-cubic-foot oven on the Kenmore 95073.
