Stainless Steel finished slide-in range related to The Wirecutter's top pick but without the convection feature: https://thewirecutter.com/reviews...-ge-jgs760
I have the JGS760 with convection and not this one but they should perform nearly identically. my biggest regret with this range is the power burners are very big so they only work well with large skillets and pans. I would have preferred a double ring so the center gets warmer and it's a bit more even in heating. It works well, and it's an age old design. The knob panel gets greasy and needs to be cleaned more often than a more vertical panel.
This model has the black cooktop which I think works much better than the stainless steel because it's a lot easier to clean and keep clean.

This same stove range was on sale on Black Friday for $1000.

I have this stove. Performance wise, I think it's okay, not that impressed. The power range is not at all powerful. The steam clean is just a marketing thing. It's nothing but a slight dip in the bottom of the oven where you can poor water in the area. The center griddle has hot and cold spots and it's not easy to clean. The lighter broke after two months. The digital timer is not easy to use and lacks features. The only thing going for this stove/oven is that it does look sleek. Overall, I can not recommend it. You can get a better performance stove for less.
Professional chefs prefer gas for a reason. Induction is very nice, but the cost is just absurd. I think we can all agree that smooth glasstops suck, though. Smilie
Induction is great if your stove area is already wired for it. If say you have gas and your panel is on the opposite side of the home in a finished basement it makes less sense. Also personal preference cooking with both I still prefer gas.

If im buying a new stove at this point its going to be induction, cant see any reason to get gas or glasstop anymore.
Are all induction electric? How would you say the energy cost would be vs. gas?

No convection kills it. Mind blowing how much more slide-ins cost vs free standing. I got full stainless samsung gas range with convection for $650 delivered after tax, haul away included. Only catch was it's a free standing stove.

I also considered induction, but the cost was outrageous compared to gas, and the only induction ranges under $1500 had reliability issues.

I use cast iron for 99.99% of my cooking anyway. Can afford a new non-stick for eggs when I get around to it

Repairs on induction are usually outrageous and parts take a little longer to receive.

Interesting points. Why the heck are "slide ins" so much more? From what I can tell the only diff is the location of controls.

A huge reason for gas stove:
release 50A from your electricity panel capacity so that you can use for your new fancy electric car charger without paying hefty $20K to change your panel from 100A to 200A.

Another if you are in California:
you can still cook when electricity is out.

There is a reason restaurants use gas, it's hands down the best for cooking. Buuuuut induction doesn't have fumes, is far easier to clean, and looks better. Try using a Wok on induction lol. That said, I think induction has a place for people who don't cook as much and want the best after gas.
