GE JS760

GE JS760

The best slide-in electric stove

A competitively priced slide-in range with great cooking features, in several good-looking finishes from a reputable brand.

Buying Options

$1,100 from Best Buy
$943 from Appliances Connection

The GE JS760 has no obvious design flaws or quality-control problems as far as we can tell, and its build quality feels sturdy. It also comes in more finishes than any other slide-in range we’ve seen. The smooth cooktop is sensibly laid out, with its two strongest and most-versatile heating elements in the front row, where they’re easiest to reach. The oven is big enough to comfortably fit a hefty 26-pound turkey or a spacious 15-by-20-inch baking stone and has a “true” convection cooking mode for quicker, crispier, evenly done cooking, plus a high-heat self-cleaning mode, too. One important note: It’s a front-control range, not a “true” slide-in range. That means it should be easier to install in most kitchens, but might be a little tricky if you’re replacing an older slide-in, so double-check to make sure that it fits your space.

Bosch 800 Series HEI8054UC

Upscale look, sturdier build

Details like glass touch panels, metal knobs, and heavier-duty hardware set this European-style range apart.

Buying Options

$1,900 from Home Depot
$1,800 from Appliances Connection

The Bosch 800 Series HEI8054UC has an upscale look and heavier-duty construction than most slide-in ranges. It costs far less than a true luxury range, but details like glass touch control, metal burner knobs, and sturdy hardware put it above a typical slide-in range. Though its cooktop and oven specs are pretty run-of-the-mill given the high price, it’s perfectly capable of putting a big holiday meal on the table. It’s a true slide-in range, so it will overlap your counters when installed.

GE Profile PHS930

GE Profile PHS930

Awesome induction cooktop

If cooking performance is your priority, this range’s induction cooktop is much faster, safer, and more responsive than regular radiant-electric tech.

Buying Options

$2,440 from Home Depot
$2,440 from Abt

Induction cooktops are faster, safer, and more precise than regular radiant-electric cooktops. So if you value cooktop performance and can afford it, check out the GE Profile PHS930. A handful of other induction slide-in ranges are out there, but we’d recommend this one on the strength of GE’s reputation for reliability. Owner reviews for this model are excellent, too. The touch-sensitive faux-dial controls may take some getting used to, though, and as with any induction cooktop, you’ll need to make sure you have compatible cookware. This is a front-control range rather than a true slide-in.

If you just need a cheap slide-in

If you want a front-control range without spending too much money, this is a perfectly adequate option.

Buying Options

$900* from Best Buy
$126 from Abt

*At the time of publishing, the price was $858.

If you want a front-control range but have a relatively tight budget, the GE JS645 is one of the few slide-in models that (usually) costs less than $1,000. The build quality feels slightly flimsy compared to most slide-ins. The oven has no convection mode, either, which is rare in this category. But otherwise, its cooking specs rival models that cost hundreds more, its owner ratings are strong, and it comes in more good-looking finishes than a lot of other slide-ins.

GE Profile PS960

A double-oven slide-in range

This double-oven range has one of the largest lower ovens we’ve seen in this quirky product category, and one of the strongest power-burner elements we’ve seen on any electric stovetop.

Buying Options

$2,208 from Home Depot

If you’re looking for a double-oven slide-in range, we’d suggest the GE Profile PS960. It has cooking features that are among the best in its class, including one of the strongest power-burner elements we’ve seen on a radiant-electric stove. Its lower oven can fit bigger birds and roasts than other two-cavity models, too.
