Most every home in the United States has at least a few appliances and among the larger ones, one that you find in most every residence is a range. These household essentials are offered in either gas or electric and one I have used and liked is the GE Electric Range JB640DRBB.

Range Facts and Figures:
The GE Electric Range Model JB640DRBB is a 30- inch range with self- cleaning operation and electric power functioning. The range has four burners on top with a large 5.3 cubic foot oven, along with a broiler on the bottom. The burners include two 6- inch, one 8- inch, and one 12- inch size. The oven includes two steel racks, seven different rack positions, and both an upper and lower coil to keep the heat dispersed.
Looking at the other functions with the GE Electric Range Model JB640DRBB reveals individual knobs for each of the four burners; self- cleaning button; oven light; broil; and timer. There is also a small red light that displays itself to indicate if the surface is too hot to touch and a digital display that shows the time of day, a timer, and other things.
The GE Electric Range Model JB640DRBB is a good range from the people at General Electric and an appliance that makes a good choice or most any kitchen. This electric range is black in color and it has enough options/features to make it a worthy option for any homemaker.
I don’t partake in much food preparation, but I agree that a good kitchen range is essential and when I shop for a range, I spend considerable time making comparisons and try to make sure I purchase the right one for my individual needs. I don’t necessarily have to have every bell and whistle, but I do want a range that offers something above and beyond the standard; some feature or ability that sets it apart from the hundreds of competitors and the GE Electric Range Model JB640DRBB seems to fit this description.
From the start, the GE Electric Range Model JB640DRBB stands out in the crowd with its stylish appearance. The black color looks sharp in most any kitchen and the smooth top is nice to look at and great when it comes time to clean. With the smooth cooking surface, cleanup is a cinch and the self- cleaning oven further ensures that you, the consumer, do not have to devote endless hours to getting your range/oven in tip- top condition.
Now, let’s look at the remaining features of this GE range. The knob controls are pretty ordinary and the digital display is nothing unique, but there are other qualities of this electric range that do, indeed, standout in the crowd and the first is the size of the burners. Most electric ranges have two different burner sizes: 2 of a smaller size and two of a medium size. With the GE Electric Range Model JB640DRBB, the sizes are expanded to include one larger burner. With this range, there are two burners measuring 6 inches, which is standard, but there is then one burner measuring ten inches, and other one measuring twelve inches. The twelve inch burner is perfect when you need a large size burner to accommodate your extra large skillet or other pot/pan. The larger size means that more heat is disbursed over a large area and food cooks faster.
Having a large burner on top of the GE Electric Range Model JB640DRBB is very nice, but what is even nicer is the speed of heating. Turn on one of the four burners and you can immediately see the red- hot coils underneath. In seconds, the surface is hot and ready to use. This is much better than the traditional electric ranges that have exposed coils that take a very long time to heat up. The oven takes a little longer to get hot and get ready, but it is still good and still able to reach its preheated temperature setting in a short time.
Speaking of the oven, the GE Electric Range Model JB640DRBB has a large interior and can accommodate different baked goods. I like the upper and lower coils because they do a good job dispersing the heat and help bake foods just right. I don’t need to make any adjustments to timing when I use a range like this. The settings seem to be just right and the food comes out of the oven cooked properly and ready to eat.
Cleanup is easy with the GE Electric Range Model JB640DRBB and the reason is because of the smooth top and self- cleaning oven. Spilled foods, splattered grease, and other problems are dealt with quickly and painlessly due to the smooth top surface and most stains can be wiped clean in a matter of seconds. The same is true with the oven- it is self-cleaning, so all you need to do is lock the oven door using the special latch, turn on the self- cleaning option, and let it do its thing. In a couple of hours, your electric range will look as good as new.
Overall, the GE Electric Range Model JB640DRBB is a very good electric range and one that all should consider buying. I don’t like most GE appliances in terms of quality, but this one, the GE Electric Range Model JB640DRBB is one of the standouts, with several different reasons to consider adding it to your electric range shopping list. It is offered at a fair price and with extra benefits like the ones outlined above, this is a very good appliance for any kitchen.
