Frequently Asked Questions

Why Trust Spencers Appliance?

Thanksgiving is a fun and exciting time for families to come together. You can enjoy some of your favorite meals and reflect on the past year. While your relatives might fight over the sweet potatoes or cranberry sauce, the turkey remains the centerpiece of the meal for most American households. If you are the one preparing the turkey this year, you want it to be flavorful and juicy so your family eats it all up.

Cooking a turkey isn’t as easy as it seems, which is why appliance manufacturers have developed specific settings on their ovens and ranges to help you prepare the bird. Learn more about the GE oven turkey mode and how to use it effectively.

GE Ovens

You can use the GE oven turkey mode on almost any smart oven or range by this brand. Make sure you have the latest version of the SmartHQ™ app and an internal temperature probe that connects to the oven. Many GE ovens come with this probe built in. You should be able to tell the app that you are cooking a whole turkey and insert its weight. The app can give you an estimate for how long you need to cook this entrée. Use this turkey mode guide by GE for more information.

Along with using the GE oven turkey mode, you can also explore the convection cooking system that circulates the air for a more even cooking experience. Convection cooking is faster, so you can spend less time cooking and more time celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday.

This is a highly-rated oven with several positive reviews. One person writes, “I love this new oven. it is so quiet and heats up quickly. Cooks evenly and the app allows me to know when the oven is ready or the timer goes off.”

If you have the space, consider upgrading to double ovens in your kitchen. This is the best option for preparing multiple dishes at the same time. You can set the GE oven turkey mode on the bottom while you prepare a variety of side dishes, pies, rolls, and other delicious treats on the top. You will love how the roller racks glide forward and back instead of forcing you to pull them open to access your food.

This is another popular model by GE. One person says, “I have already used both ovens many times and have only had them a few weeks. They are very easy to use and have all the options I wanted. The proof setting is fantastic. The warm setting helps me a lot.”

GE Profile

GE Profile ovens also have turkey mode, which is ideal if you are exploring the different features of these appliances. Their experts advise inserting the probe into the deepest part of the turkey breast in order to get an accurate reading. Make sure you don’t touch any of the turkey bones in this process. Your SmartHQ™ app will also tell you where to place the turkey, which will likely be in the lower part of the oven.

This range by GE Profile is a great alternative to owning an oven and cooktop separately. You can combine all of your favorite features into one appliance and enjoy a flexible cooking experience. There are four gas burners on the top and a middle burner that is ideal for preparing food over a griddle. The oven has smart technology and no-preheat air-fry functionality.

Customers love cooking on this range. One buy writes, “Wow! What an upgrade from my last dual-fuel range. This one has it all. It is super intuitive and easy to use. Love the air fryer & convection.”

If you want one of the most advanced cooking options on the market, consider this induction range. Induction cooking uses electromagnetic technology to directly heat your pans, which is more advanced than gas or electric models that simply create hot surfaces to cook on. You might find that your food cooks faster with an induction range, allowing you to enjoy it sooner.

This range has everything you want from a smart appliance, including GE Profile oven turkey mode. The ratings reflect how useful this appliance is. One buyer writes, “We have always cooked with gas but decided to go induction when we remodeled our kitchen. The induction range cooks hotter than gas which is nice. The oven has convection and air fryer modes.”

GE Café Oven

Café has some of the most stylish products on the market right now, but this brand is still part of the GE family. This means you can still use the GE oven turkey mode even if you have a Café range. When using turkey mode for a GE Café appliance, cook it in a roasting pan. Check on your bird frequently to make sure any oil or butter rub on the skin is distributed equally. No one wants to eat a patchy bird, so you might need to brush on more oil if you missed some spots. Your turkey is considered done when the internal temperature reachers 165° F.

Café™ 30" Stainless Steel Slide in Electric Range

GE Café also carries ranges that are both functional and fashionable. Along with the stainless steel models, explore the other matte finishes in black and white. This electric range is particularly flexible because it has five total heating elements, including one dual-ring burner and one triple-ring burner.

You can see what people think about this model by reading online reviews. One person writes, “This oven is gorgeous beyond belief! It works great, it looks great and although I was scared at first to try a new brand after so many years, I am so happy I made the decision to go with the GE Café appliances.”

Café™ 30" Stainless Steel Slide In Dual Fuel Range

Café 30in Stainless Slide In Dual Fuel Range

If you want a three-in-one appliance, then you can’t go wrong with this gas range. You can enjoy the quality-made gas burners on the top and two ovens at the bottom. This allows you to turn on GE Café oven turkey mode for the larger oven while preparing rolls and other side dishes in the top compartment. There are plenty of impressive Café ovens and stoves on the market, but this one stands out as a quality option.

Many customer reviews rave about this range. One person writes, “I love my new Café stove. It has made cooking fun again and easier! I find myself wanting to try new recipes and techniques. Thank you for creating this line of appliances for the homeowner.”


How do I use GE turkey mode?

You can cook your turkey by inserting the internal temperature probe and telling the oven how much the turkey weighs. The oven will then adjust the temperature and time settings to cook the bird. You can monitor the internal temperature of the turkey on your smartphone to see exactly when it is ready to eat.

How to cook turkey in a GE oven?

One of the easiest ways to cook your turkey is with the turkey mode setting. You can find this through the touchscreen control panel that covers the preparation of meat and poultry. If you do not have an oven with turkey mode, follow your recipe carefully based on the weight of the turkey so it doesn’t come out dry.

Does GE Turkey mode work?

Yes. Turkey mode is specifically designed to help families prepare turkeys on Thanksgiving Day. Not only can you enjoy a delicious turkey, but you can also monitor its cooking process from your phone. You can catch the day’s football games without accidentally overcooking the meal.
