Where to Buy
 

The Galaxy 60712 is about as basic and inexpensive as a gas range can get. It has none of the features found on high-end ranges, such as convection, sealed burners or digital controls. In fact, it doesn't even have such basic features as a self-cleaning cycle, an oven light, an oven window or a clock (though it does include a separate broiler tray). However, most users say it does everything they really need a range to do, delivering reliable performance and very accurate temperatures for baking. To many users, its very simplicity is a selling point, since they say the basic controls found on this range are less likely to break. Owners also find the range easy to clean. However, owners who want more than the absolute basics should consider paying more for the highly rated LG LRG3095ST (*Est. $1,500).

The Galaxy 60712 has not been included in any professional reviews. Moreover, because Galaxy appliances are made and sold exclusively by Sears, this range isn't listed or rated at most retail sites. The 30 or so reviews we found at Sears.com are our only source of information about this range.
