ADA-Compliant Ranges

GE range models that meet ADA Regulations feature upfront controls that can be accessed without reaching across hot burners. These controls are designed for one-hand operation and are positioned within a forward reach range of 15 and 48 inches. Plus, many electric models feature hot-surface indicator lights and control-lock capability for added peace of mind and convenience.
