I have the same problem. I'm going to put in a 27-inch oven in the 27-inch spot. I'm running countertop over the oven, having the electrician put in outlets on the wall, and using induction hobs instead of a cooktop. I will also have room to use a griddle or crockpot. It gives me 27 more inches of countertop.
I have an induction cooktop at home and love it. I also don't want to buy an old coil stove, especially for the price GE charges..

I too am looking for an affordable 27" drop in electric range to fit an existing space. The GE model listed previosly is over $1200... I can't believe there are so few options.

I have been waiting and looking for GE to come out with a smooth top 27" electric range for years and years now. When we bought our home, we didn't know the stove was only 27" wide. Not until we decided to replace it with a beautiful stove that was convection and smooth top and had two ovens. I was in love with it, and then we measured. WHAT? The new oven wasn't going to fit? I started looking, and found out that GE was the only manufacturer, and THEY DON'T CARE WHAT PEOPLE WANT IN A 27" RANGE. I've written them and was told that they consider a 27" range as a replacement stove for rentals, and don't believe people have them in their homes. BUT who would want to pay the price they charge for a 27" drop in range for a rental? It's over priced at most! They must make a lot of money on their old technology.

Do you know where I can get one that's repaired?

Instead of doing a complete remodel, keep in mind, you may be able to get away with a single cabinet change. Example: If I have an 18" cabinet on one side of the range, I may be able to replace that with a 12", stain to match and cut down the top. Now I've just gained 6" of space allowing me to go to the 30" range and save a fortune in remodeling. The difference can be made up with a cabinet spacer... Good Luck.

Where did you find a 27 inch drop in electric range with a flat top with knobs or electronic controls? Trying to replace my 20 year old GE and running into the same problem everyone else is.

Think I'm just gonna "bite the bullet" and get a 30" cooktop and 27" wall oven. Might be a little more expensive, but less than having to knock out cabinetry to make room for range. Also, replacement costs could be cheaper if only one appliance goes bad in future.
