The stovetop was reportedly impressive with a powerful front burner heat output of 18,000 BTU and a left rear burner with a steady 5, 000 BTU for precise simmering, and low, even heat distribution. Users enjoyed using this low burner for melting chocolate and cooking delicate foods.
The 10,000 BTU integrated non-stick oval burner in the center of the stove top was enjoyed by most who said it was faster and easier than using a pan. This model’s griddle is one of the industries largest, and allows for 6 toasted sandwiches to be grilled all at once, great for holiday cooking in full houses. Also ideal for things like pancakes and some users enjoyed toasting quesadillas on it due to its generous size.
Some expressed dismay when cooking foods that produced lots of liquid or grease, due to the likelihood of liquids overflowing onto the other burners which would be difficult to clean.
Users were impressed with the easy usability and great functionality of the GE JGS760SELSS’ 5.6 cu.ft capacity oven and it’s offering of 5 different oven rack positions. The ovens capabilities performed impressively in numerous baking tests, and produced evenly baked biscuits when using different levels and racks.
Some commented that the convection oven feature sped up the cooking process so there was a need to adjust cooking times and temperatures accordingly.
There were good reports for in-oven broiling and heat searing and it performed well in tastily browning a tray of succulent burgers to perfection. Other oven control features include audible preheat signal, auto recipe conversion, control lock capability, dual broil and an electronic clock and kitchen timer.
The GE JGS760SELSS does not, unfortunately, offer any cooking modes like ‘delay bake’ or ‘healthy cook’ for the amateur cook as some of the more expensive models would.
Users loved a nifty feature on the electronic touch control pad that tells you the temperature of the oven as it is rising, so you know how far along you are in the preheating stage.
GE appliances “Fit guarantee”
Although subject to terms and conditions, there is a “Fit guarantee” on slide-in models such as GE JGS760SELSS, so if your stove doesn’t fit, then they will carry some accountability with a $300 contribution towards modifying countertops.
Self clean with a ‘steam clean’ option
This model is self-cleaning and features a ‘steam clean’ option which works well for quick cleaning of minor food spills at lower temperatures than the standard self-clean feature. The grates are not difficult to keep clean, and one can simply place them in the bottom of your self-clean oven, or easily and safely wash them in your dishwasher.
Families with kids remarked they enjoyed having the controls in front. So to be clear; the controls and knobs are on the actual stove top below the central burner. This makes it very difficult for small kids to access, which was a plus for families with young busy toddlers who enjoyed this safety feature.
Smooth glide storage drawer
A helpful additional storage option, this deep bottom drawer was appreciated by users who said it worked well to store baking trays and other cooking utensils. The drawer comes with a wide handle parallel to the oven door handle above, making the drawer easy to open and close and thus allowing quick and effortless access.

Most were satisfied with the electronic ignition system and convection oven’s cooking capabilities as well as the 5 sealed cooktop burners in stainless steel. The electric touch control pad reportedly worked well and most said the GE JGS760SELSS was good value for money and that the build quality was great for a stove in this price range.
