First, and probably most importantly, GE is the most reliable appliance brand for this year at about 6.5 percent service in the first year.
We service what we sell with over 37,000 service calls logged just last year. If you’re buying from a store without service, realize GE service department as well. The PB935 is a high end freestanding electric range, so the controls are on the back rather than the front.
Let’s look at its key features. The top is for burners and a warming zone. Two of the burners connect with a bridge element to form a larger burner, perfect for a griddle platter or odd shaped dish. The front right burners expandable for larger pots as well. The oven is electric convection. The convection blows the heat around, creating an even heat throughout the oven for better baking.
Like almost all GE appliances, this range is wi-fi and can be controlled from an app on your phone. Adjust the temperature, turn the oven on or off right from your telephone. So this range is decent features, yet it’s a bit pricey at $1,159. Samsung, Whirlpool even GE have their non-convection ranges starting at $719 with a wi-fi and convection functionality. Also the PB935 doesn’t have the newest air fry feature.
Should You Buy It?
It’s not a double oven or have a warming draw at the bottom instead of a storage drawer like many of the better but more expensive GE ranges. So should you buy the PB935, yes, the range should be considered depending on what you’re looking for.
It’s dependable, has convection and a number of decent options on the top of convection in the oven. However, you do have different options, if you want a lesser, expensive or better featured range.
