If you are looking for a luxury kitchen range that will cost you less than $1,000 you may think that you’re going to have to go with an off-brand or generic appliance that features lackluster features and technologies. While this may have been true in the past, the current appliance industry features several kitchen ranges outfitted with professional-grade cooking platform and a price that is well-under a grand. The GE 5.3 Cu. Ft. Electric Convection Range, Model: JB670SPSS features a beautiful design, powerful oven cooking system and a cooktop ideal for the professional cook. This GE JB670SPSS Electric Convection Range features an average price of just over $700, and it can be purchased anywhere GE appliances are sold.

The control panels for this GE JB670SPSS Electric Convection Range are located on the ranges backsplash. The oven control panel features the QuickSet IV design, which features easy-to-use touch-button controls that will let you manipulate the oven temperatures and cook settings. Of course, there is also a digital clock and timer so you can ensure you don’t overcook your dishes.
The control knobs for the cooktop surface are also located on the backsplash of this GE JB670SPSS Electric Convection Range, and are situated on both sides of the oven control panel. Cooktop knobs on a range backsplash is a common design feature for a freestanding range; however, I find that this design choice reduces the safety of this range as you must reach over boiling hot pots and pans to adjust the cooking temperature.
Oven Capacity and Features:
The oven for this GE JB670SPSS Electric Convection Range features a total cooking capacity of 5.3 cubic feet, which is an excellent size for families of all sizes as well as those who enjoy entertaining. You will be able to place numerous dishes of all sizes within oven as it will provide you with ample room and two oven racks that can be placed in several positions.
The coolest aspect, or should I say the hottest, is the TrueTemp Temperature Management System. This powerful cooking system will let you choose between cooking your meals using convection technologies (third heating element and a circulating fan) or through the traditional thermal baking system. The benefits of having two cooking platforms is you are able to decide how you want to prepare a meal as convection cooking compared to traditional cooking is slightly different.
The surface of this GE JB670SPSS Electric Convection Range is quite impressive as it will provide you with a solid black ceramic-glass finish. This type of design choice not only makes cleaning extremely easy, but it will also provide you with a higher quality heat transfer from the cooktop to the bottom of your pots and pans. There are a total of four cooktop elements, which range in size as well as heat output. The elements are able to deliver a low heat (1,500-Watts) or extremely high heat (3,000-Watts) to quickly cook dishes. Lastly you will have a dual heating element, which means you can select between two sizes within a single element. This element features a minimum size of 9-inches and a maximum size of 12-inches.
