GE Free-Standing Ranges can be installed free from surrounding cabinetry, thanks to the side panels that have a finished appearance. The range features a Glass-Ceramic Cooktop and is made with a specially engineered ceramic glass that has an amazing resistance to both stains and impact. The heat comes from brightly glowing elements positioned beneath the smooth surface. Even heat is directed straight upwards to the pan for high speed heat transfer. Bake, roast, and cook evenly with GE's convection ranges.
