Great Stove

One of the later REAL GE 40" models. Love the backpainted glass console and the "Power Saver" feature on the 8" burner.

But Rochester. Sheeesh.....

And its!

ALMOND....Which I like even less than yellow or harvest gold! But what a nice range, probably one of the last good ones

Almond isn't commonly seen in these models. It wasn't too many years after the color's introduction when GE started outsourcing the 40" ranges to WCI.

"Power Saver"

While the term "Power Saver" was a great buzzword in the later '70s, it actually heralded the end of GE's most desirable feature - SensiTemp.

The "Power Saver" was nothing much more than the old three-size element used on SensiTemp burners, which could be adjusted to heat a four-inch, six-inch or eight-inch diameter of the burner, less the SensiTemp sensor and responder.

It was actually a lessening of what had gone before, but only the most savvy consumers would have known in spite of the ad-speak that they were getting less than had been provided on previous models.

Convenience outlets were also gone by this time. However, one new feature had been added - not that anyone I know is a fan of it.

It was "Push to Turn" burner controls. HatehatehatehateHATE.

Push to Turn...

May the government official that came up with that be sat upon a 3200 watt unit for all eternity and have his A$% FRIED!!!

Notice they have an oven dial on the Sensi-Temp switch, unless this was one of the very rare self-cleaning Sensi-Temp units or a Sensi-Temp that cleaned cookware. I don't remember reading too much about that.

...all of which is OK by me if there's a rotisserie in that RH oven.
