LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- August 20, 2014

Think you accidentally left the oven on? Switch it off while on the go. The
new free-standing Profile™ Series gas and electric ranges are GE’s second
cooking appliances, following the wall oven, to allow consumers to preheat,
set the time, and check cooking status using an app on their smartphone. With
the additional cooking appliance models, GE is making the connected kitchen a
reality for busy consumers.

Nearly 90 percent of American adults have some kind of cell phone and two out
of three have a smartphone.^1 With most Americans using smartphones to handle
everyday tasks from checking email to counting calories, GE is bringing that
same convenient technology to the kitchen where it’s adding free-standing gas
and electric ranges to its lineup of smart appliances in September. To use the
connected technology, owners of new GE Profile ranges (models PB930, PGB940,
P2B940) just need to download the GE Brillion™ mobile app and enable remote
control.*

“We’re expanding our line of connected appliances to make life easier while
you’re on the go,” said Product Manager Jonathan Sprigler. “Consumers expect
more things to be accessible through their phones, and GE is enabling them to
have the control they want.”

Other features:

  *True European Convection with Precise Air™ significantly increases air
    coverage on food, resulting in great cooking performance (electric models
    only).
  *A warming drawer provides variable temperature control for keeping foods
    warm.
  *Self-clean, heavy-duty roller rack easily glides out taking less effort to
    transfer dishes from the oven to the table.
  *An oven meat probe tracks the temperature of the food in the oven without
    constantly opening the oven door.
  *Tri-ring burners let the chef determine what size heating element they
    need—6, 9 or 12 inches—to perfect their recipes.
  *Notification lighting makes it easy to multitask while cooking your
    favorite food to perfection. The interior oven light automatically comes
    on when the oven has preheated so you can quickly see the progress while
    you do something else.

Model number PB930 has an MSRP of $1,599, and both PGB940 and P2B940 model
numbers have an MSRP of $2,099.** Gas and electric models are available in
black, white and stainless finishes.
