GE JGS760

GE JGS760

The best slide-in gas stove

It has great cooking performance for a fair price in several good-looking finishes, all from a brand with a reputation for reliability.

The GE JGS760, as far as we can tell, has no obvious design flaws or quality-control problems, and the build feels sturdy. The cooktop comes with a typical set of burners for the price, capable of all but the most extreme high-temperature and low-temperature tasks. It also comes with a griddle and has its two strongest burners in the front row, which we think is the most convenient way to arrange burners (and is less common than you’d think). 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 convection cooking mode for quicker, crispier, evenly done cooking.

Bosch 800 Series HGI8054UC

Bosch 800 Series HGI8054UC

Upscale look, sturdier build

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

Buying Options

$2,070 from Best Buy
$1,950 from Appliances Connection

If you’d prefer a slide-in range with a more upscale look and an even sturdier construction, get the Bosch 800 Series HGI8054UC. It costs thousands of dollars less than a pro-style or luxury range, but details like glass touch-panel oven controls and heavier-duty hardware put it in a tier above most slide-ins. While its cooking-related specs and features aren’t anything special for the price—the oven is relatively small, and the burners aren’t any stronger than you’d find on a cheaper model—you can still cook pretty much anything with this range, including Thanksgiving dinner. The 800 Series is also available in a dual-fuel version (responsive gas cooktop, consistent electric oven) called the HDI8054U.

GE Profile PGS930

GE Profile PGS930

High-end cooking features

A top performer, with impressive cooktop and oven specs for the price. Also available in a dual-fuel version.

Buying Options

$2,400* from Abt
$2,423 from Appliances Connection

*At the time of publishing, the price was $1,697.

The GE Profile PGS930 has the most impressive cooking specs you’ll find in a slide-in range. The 21,000 Btu power burner is among the strongest gas burners we’ve seen on any residential stove at any price, so it will boil water faster than other slide-ins, and thanks to the burner’s three-ring design, it’s also good at holding low temperatures. It does have upscale details like a glass control panel, though the build isn’t quite as heavy-duty as the Bosch 800 Series. It’s also available in a dual-fuel version, the P2S930.

Frigidaire FFGH3054US

Decent and affordable

A reasonably priced range with adequate specs, this is perfectly fine if you want the look of a slide-in range on the cheap.

If you want the look of a slide-in range but don’t have a lot of money to spend, the Frigidaire FFGH3054US is your best bet. It’s pretty much the only gas slide-in that regularly costs less than $1,000. You’ll have to settle for less-impressive (but still adequate) specs than you’d get in a typical slide-in range: The oven has no convection mode, and the power burner is a little weaker than usual. The build quality also feels a bit flimsier than most we looked at. But owners seem happy with it and, again, it’s pretty affordable.

This double-oven range has one of the largest lower ovens we’ve seen in this quirky product category, and an unusually strong power burner.

Buying Options

If you’re looking for a double-oven slide-in range, we’d suggest the GE Profile PGS960. It has cooking features that are among the best in its class, including one of the strongest power burners we’ve seen on any non-pro-style stove. Its lower oven can fit bigger birds and roasts than other two-cavity models, too.
