The GE Profile PB960SJSS is a great electric range that combines a large interior capacity, with powerful cooktop elements, and a stylish finish.
This electric range boasts five cooktop elements, one of which can expand to accommodate larger pans. There are two main things that this electric range is missing and they are WiFi connectivity and a storage/ warming drawer at the bottom of the oven.

GE Profile PB960SJSS: Features
The GE Profile PB960SJSS freestanding electric range offers 6.6 cubic feet of cooking space. The range’s interior is a glossy black and for the exterior, you can choose between stainless steel or fingerprint-resistant black stainless steel. Prices do vary depending on which color finish you opt for.
Inside the oven, the GE Profile PB960SJSS benefits from convection cooking so that air is distributed around your food, helping it to cook more evenly. Other handy features include the Delay Bake function which allows you to preset what time you’d like the oven to switch on at.
There are three oven racks inside this electric range but they can be configured in nine different positions and due to the range’s large capacity, it’s well suited to large households or those who regularly cook and entertain. Generally speaking, a capacity of over 5.3 cubic feet is ideal for a family, so the GE Profile PB960SJSS’s 6.6 cubic feet is quite a bit more.
On the cooktop of this GE electric range, you’ll find five cooktop elements. One of these elements can expand up to 12-inches, which is bigger than most expanding cooktops we’ve come across.
What’s more, the cooktop is made of edge to edge glass which makes cleaning easier, although it can be more prone to smudge marks and fingerprints. Another feature the GE Profile PB960SJSS has is synchronized elements. What this means is you can control two cooktop elements at once to create one big cooking space.
A Control Lock means you can disable the range controls to prevent them from being changed or to stop children from switching the oven on.
This electric range is also fitted with self-cleaning functions so you won’t have to spend hours scrubbing it clean. However, this is pretty standard in most electric ranges nowadays, especially if you’re paying over $1,000.
What the GE Profile PB960SJSS is missing though, is a warming drawer for dishes that you’ve cooked but aren’t quite ready to serve. For an electric range of this spec and price bracket, it’s a shame this oven isn’t smart-enabled so that you could control it from your phone.

Should you buy the GE PB960SJSS?
If you’re looking for a powerful electric range with quick-heating cooktops, then the GE PB960SJSS is an ideal fit. It offers plenty of cooking space across two ovens and has handy features to make cooking much easier. If you want an electric range that is smart-enabled though, the GE PB960SJSS is not the model for you.
