The new GE gas range cooker marries the natural soil-busting ability of steam with the cooking performance of gas to offer high output meal preparation with high performance cleaning. GE 30-inch freestanding gas range, the JGBS23, is the industry first and only gas range with steam-clean capabilities. The JGBS23 offers natural steam cleaning to loosen hard, baked-on food, so it can be easily wiped away with fewer chemicals and less scrubbing. GE now incorporates steam cleaning features in consumer dishwashers, clothes washers and dryers, electric and now, gas ovens.
Simply pour one cup of water in the reservoir, select the Steam Clean option on the control panel of the gas range cooker, and in about 30 minutes, baked-on foods are easier to wipe away, with no chemicals and hard scrubbing.
The extra-large 4.8 cu. ft. oven capacity provides excellent baking and broiling performance and allows consumers to cook several dishes or large meals at once. High output 12,000 and 9,500 BTU sealed cooktop burners provide fast boiling, sauteing and frying. A 5,000 BTU burner also provides precise simmering. A big hearth window makes it easy to monitor oven cooking progress. The GE JGBS23 freestanding gas range with industry exclusive steam clean is available in black, white and bisque at around $600 and stainless steel at around $700. GE Appliances.
