What People Are Saying:

Consumer Reports rated the JGB281 ranges in 2011 as good overall, and gave them high marks for baking and oven capacity. However, Consumer Reports gave these ranges negative marks for broiling, calling it fair. User reviews of the ranges were predominantly positive, calling it a good product for the price. Among the customer reviews, the continuous grates across the cooktop were a contentious issue: Some users said it made it easier to slide pans around; others said the grates were positioned too high and made pans slow to heat. Several user reviews noted the ranges are exceptionally easy to clean.
