Summary: After much research, and driving far and wide to locate one up close and personal to look at, hands down this was the range for us. It is beautifully made, very sleek and modern, and works like a dream. All fans on it (convection and component cooling) are whisper quiet. The control board is located on the front (unlike the free-standing model) and is very intuitive to use. It is definitely what I call "granny friendly," i.e.
Embarrassed to admit what I paid for this disappointment

Summary: My wife and I gifted this range to each other for an anniversary. We replaced a perfectly good smooth-top electric unit because we both hated the ridiculous amount of heat that remained long after a burner was turned off. It was a hazard to us and potentially, our pets. An errant towel, hot pad or hand could have been disastrous. In retrospect, I think we would have gone a different way in buying a replacement, had we to do it over. I'll start with the positive.
Summary: Bought this range when I remodeled our kitchen. I do most of the cooking in our household. I always like to cook with gas, however, my wife is afraid of gas. Anyway, the respnce with this range is as good or better than gas(in my opinion). I have pwned a set of Al Clad stainless steel pans for over a year before I bought this range, and had never used them on our old electric range. Using these pans with this range, I don't have to worry about the bottoms turning color.

Summary: I bought this range in august 2011. I absolutely love it! It is amazing how fast water will boil or how precise the temperature setting is on burners. I love that I can cook on paper towels for easy clean up if water boils over by accident. Oven is ok. Does take a while for temp to come up so I usually turn on the convection bake which heats the oven up faster. I have used the meat temperature probe to cook pork tenderloin and I love that I can just set the temp.
Great Cooking Ability with some practical thoughts

Summary: We have the same glowing reviews as others, but I am going to add some other things that people may or may not think of when buying a stove. If you have small children--beware of the handle on the bottom drawer. It is very tempting for our three year old to stand on it to see what we're doing. Obviously this is a safety hazard since she'll generally use the oven door as the thing to grab when standing on the drawer.
Summary: My range was delivered at the end of December and I've been using it for 4 months now. It is everything that I expected and I am very happy with it. It is so much easier to clean than any other range I've had, just a soapy, damp sponge to clean the grime, another wipe down with it rinsed out, and then some window cleaner. My friends who come to visit are impressed with how fast it boils a pot of water, and the oven is large and accurate.
Summary: I need to say out front that this is by far the best range I have ever used. The stove top heats amazingly fast. You'll have to revise the way you do all your cooking, because you really can't do much of anything "while you wait for the water to boil." The convection oven does a great job of baking things at a uniform temperature, even when you put three baking sheets in at once. We wish our other kitchen appliances were half as good as this.
Summary: Wow all i can say is I have had this range since mid august! I had so much trouble with the Samsung induction model I bought in Janaury and was lucky enough to be able to return. I had done some searching for the GE range but could not find one that I could actually see so I settled for the Samsung at Lowes. Since it was being returned I knew that I had to find what I was going to replace it with.
Summary: Powerful and fast is the best way I can describe the cooktop on GE's new Induction Range. It is so incredible it even surpassed all my expectations. It boils water so fast you don't even have time to get the food ready to go in before the lids rattling off the pot. Yet it heats so low that you can melt a large bar of chocolate directly in a pan without having to use a double boiler!
