Pros:A reliable functional stove for a reasonable price.

Cons:All the burners are the same size. There is no small simmer burner.

The Bottom Line: Excellent value. Takes abuse and keeps on cooking.


Most new stoves extend the height of the back panel to allow placement of clocks and temperature setting controls. Those stoves are unsuitable for installation in apartment units where the stove backs up on the counter-high pass-through between the kitchen and the dining area. This model is one of the few modestly price units whose back panel is low enough so the rear of the stove is completely hidden by the pass-through partition.

For an apartment property owner, it is important that the stove be easy to clean up when tenancy turns over. When the under burner area of the stove is flooded with wires and small gas lines, the cost to clean the stove can easily exceed the one time incremental cost of acquiring a stove with easy-to-clean features. The lift-up cook-top and flat unobstructed configuration of the under-burner sub-top area on the RGB508 makes for easy cleaning.

The simple electronic ignition on the RGB508 provides trouble free operation. There are no easily-broken ceramic-insulated metal posts positioned next to the burners. There is no fancy flame-sensing electronics.

The stops that prevent the oven door from opening past the horizontal position are simple but effective and configured so as to keep oven grease removers away from the springs.

I've purchased nine of this model over the past few years, and I'm about to buy one more.
