There’s a reason why GE is the most popular brand for cooking appliances in the U.S.: It makes a solid product. The JB655SKSS is no exception. It does an excellent job at roasting and broiling, but may not be the best bet for serious bakers: Our cakes came out pretty uneven. But it boils 6 cups of water in about 9 minutes, which is pretty speedy. Overall, this range is a good deal for what it does and consumers agree.

Whirlpool WFG515S0ES

The Whirlpool WFG515S0ES gas range is great for those on a budget. With a retail price of $539, it boasts an excellent oven that's capable of great baking, plus a handy self-clean feature. The rangetop has all the temperature reach and speed you’ll need. It features a stainless-steel front and sits flush with your kitchen cabinets for a seamless, modern look. This range is undeniably better than most budget options.

Whirlpool WFE515S0ES

The Whirlpool WFE515S0ES electric range offers high quality cooking capability, an attractive, stainless exterior, and an array of features that cover all bases in the kitchen. The 5.3 cubic-foot oven bakes food evenly, and the 30-inch electric rangetop can reach high and low temperatures alike. There’s no convection in the oven, but standard bake and two self-clean modes are each so effective that you won't miss it.

Kenmore 94193

This Kenmore is extremely reasonably priced for what it offers: A 5 burner cooktop with a Turbo Boil setting, warming drawer, and convection bake. However, while the stovetop works wonderfully, the oven doesn't. Convection is a highly sought-after feature in an oven, but this Kenmore's left our food extremely uneven—Even worse off than standard bake. If you plan to use your oven often, we'd advise you look elsewhere.

We put this inexpensive GE model to the test and found that it's a good deal for what it offers. Consumers agree that it’s worth its price despite its lack of bells and whistles—It's attractive, a snap to use, and simple to clean. Its cooktop is smooth and offers a ton of space, as well as a dual-ring burner, and its 5.3 cubic-foot oven excels in roasting and broiling, though its baking capabilities are less stellar.
