GE is the only appliance company making a 27" range *of any kind* and it looks like they're only available in coil top element configuration only. Sorry.

- 27" Drop-in Ranges


When replacing older built-in appliance you often have few choices unless you want to remodel your kitchen at the same time. :(

Thanks Dan for your input I had a feeling that GE was the only one.I guess I will have to look at a remodel and quit wasting my time on something that does not excist.

** I guess I will have to look at a remodel **

If you do I suggest you plan on a regular free-standing range as it will be much easier to replace in the future when the time comes again.

Good luck!

help! I need a 27 inch stainless steel drop in range

This person should consider putting in a 27in oven and then modify the countertop to install a separate 30" cook-top. This is what I am considering. The cost is more than just biting the bullet and buying the 27" drop-in but the other option of modifying cabinets would be more costly an option. I am surprise an appliance manufacturer hasn't come up with a stove that could have a full-size cook-top and a 27" inch oven to slide into these kitchens. Seems like an easy item to do then people such as us could just cut the countertops to fit this new modified style range into place.

I have also been looking to replace my 27 inch drop in and finding it disturbing that there is nothing to choose from but also thankful to GE for at least having one. It does seem like GE or some other Manufacture would make a smooth top.

My 20 year old Kitchen Aid slide-in stove with flat radiant top just died. Decided to replace/update to stainless model. Current "standard" size is 30" current is 27". Can only find a few 27" size, but only with electric coils. I do not want coils ever again after using the flat radiant. What are we supposed to do? Small kitchen limits remodel to fit a 30" range. Why the industry-wide size increase?

I am having he same issue. Home Depot has a glass top drop in but not in stainlsss- just black, white and beige
I am considering a 24 inch free-standing and having my contractor add trim to fill in the sides and we are doing new counters so we can close the gap.

I am having problems replacing an old GE drop in range as well. It is for my mother who is 90 years old. She is legally blind but lives alone and can see enough to maneuver thru the house and care for herself. I am desperately looking for a 27inch drop in range with knobs for both stove and oven. So far I have only found one with knobs for the stove and digital for the oven.
This has been one of the most frustrating things to deal with. Why wouldn't GE carry a smooth top 27inch with knobs for all ???
