Looks '60s to me.

Maybe even early '70s.

Those big burner control buttons, which I love, were gone by the mid-60s, I think, if not sooner.


Nice model with two 8" burners.

Like '62 or '63, I'm thinking.

The reason is that the combination of Sensi-Temp (a TOL feature) and no P*7 is unusual. You later found Sensi-Temp only on upper-end models equipped with P*7.

But this is the time frame just before P*7 was introduced (Fall of '63), so the Sensi-Temp is not out of place.

I agree with you - '62 or '63. Not totally TOL, since this one has a single oven. TOL would have the companion oven, too.

I probably shouldn't have said "TOL." "Upper-end" is more descriptive of the ranges GE put Sensi-Temp on.

An example would be my J 370 30-incher from 1972. That model was one model below the TOL J 757, but it still has Sensi-Temp (and P*7). The J 757 and J 370 were the only 30-inch free-standing models that had Sensi-Temp on them that year.

In fact, my J 370 was available in a non-P*7 model, the J 330. If you opted for the J 330, you didn't just lose P*7 - you didn't get Sensi-Temp either.

So, "upper-end" is probably a better term than "TOL," because the feature was applied to upper-MOL units as well as TOL ones.

I'm thinking its from between '63 and '65. Not sure when they started putting grounded receptacles on their ranges, but don't think before '62.

That lady on Retrorenovation has one like that in her kitchen.
