Bosch vs GE Wall Ovens (Reviews/Ratings/Prices)

Bosch and GE are two of the largest corporations in the world. GE is number 6, and Bosch is number 110. They seem to be popular in different areas. GE has been a favorite with the builders and chain stores whereas Bosch is more consumer oriented as a prestige brand.


Based in Germany, Bosch is the 3rd largest appliance manufacturer in the world. With its U.S. headquarters in Irvine, CA, the company operates an appliance park in New Bern, North Carolina for dishwashers, ranges, cooktops and wall ovens. Bosch had always been viewed as a premium product at a premium price due its distinctive appearance. In reality, Bosch competes at a more reasonable price.


General Electric is the oldest appliance manufacturer in this country. With the help of Thomas Edison, GE was founded in 1907 over a century ago. With factories around the world, GE has always been known as a global company diverse in many different products. From airplanes to light bulbs, GE has always been known for innovation. After years of outsourcing, GE is building 16 factories in the United States. GE wall ovens are assembled in the U.S.

  • Self-cleaning convection
  • 4.7 cu. ft. oven (largest)

GE Wall Oven PT958SRSS

  • Self-cleaning convection
  • 4.4 cu. ft. oven
  • 6 pass broiler (hangs from top)
  • 2,100W bake element
  • 2,400-3,600W broiler wattage
  • Approx. 10-15 minute preheat
  • 2 interior lights

As we have said in the past, wall ovens are relatively simple. It is an oven without burners. GE and Bosch both have convection (fan forced heat for more even temperature) and similar wattages in bake and broil.

Difference really is Bosch recesses the broiler, which allows for more capacity in the oven. It's also larger for faster preheat and more even cooking.

Rebates are a consideration (as always). Depending on the month, the difference in prices could be 15%.
