About Me Casual Cook
Comments about GE Free Standing Stainless Dual Fuel Range:
Love the powerboil burners, they really speed up the boiling process and yet offer precise control all the way down to simmer. This may sound strange, but I also really like the continuous burner grates. makes it easy to slide pots/pans out of the way, or use it as a surface to set hot plates on, etc most of the "commercial grade" ranges do not have this. the oven is huge and heats up fast. for those of us with young kids, the burner safety cutoff function is nice. it shuts off the master gas supply so you can't accidentally light the burners or fill the house with gas. the owners manual does a poor job explaining how this feature works -- basically you press & hold the safety button for 3 seconds and then wait for 3-5 seconds for it to lock out. to resume normal operation you again press & hold for 3 seconds and then wait 3-5 seconds. the additional waiting is not described in the manual. haven't used the bottom baking drawer yet, but nice to know we have it for thankgiving dinner. one feature I would like to have is the ability to turn off the oven element but keep the convection fan running - to finish cooking food without the oven heat on. our old Viking oven did this, and I used it often. that way you're not kicking on the element during the final minutes of cooking (or if you have to extend cooking time a minute or 2, you can do so without having to reheat the element... just use the convection air etc). I guess it would be nice to have dial controls for the oven instead of push button, but no big deal. frankly I think this range is as functional as any 36" commercial grade range out there. why pay 2-3x the price for something in a residential home?
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Avid Cook
We have ony had the range for a month but so far so good. Baking perfromance is great and the Burners are fantastic.
GE dual fuel oven
I'm still getting used to the oven. The baking temperature seems to vary a lot. I've had better luck using the convection baking feature than regular baking. The cooktop has ample space. I like it more than I love it. The delivery guys were nice and helpful. However when they showed me the lock feature, the unlock took a lot of fiddling with to undo. I hope this oven isn't a lemon.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This GE Cafe freestanding stove combines the best of both worlds! Excellent GAS burners with large, easily controllable knobs, and a center large pot/ griddle burner AND a very large ELECTRIC convection oven - broil, bake, and roast. There is an additional small electric oven at the bottom that can be used for baking casseroles or keeping food warm. It is a very handsome and appealing looking stove and works exactly as it should! I did a lot of research before purchasing this stove. I was replacing a very old and very good double oven GE electric stove that is no longer made. At first I purchased another electric stove, but I immediately cancelled it when I realized that the new flat surface models with digital burner controls was so BADLY DESIGNED for anyone who loves to cook! I realized that gas on top and electric convection oven was the only way to go! So, we then had to even call a plumber and electrician to bring gas and proper power to hook up this Cafe. Was worth every extra penny! I am an Italian Grandma who has been cooking family recipes for 40 years and I love this stove!

I wanted a gas range and had to have the gas company run a gas line to my home to accommodate this new unit. It was well worth the time and expense. I love it. My kitchen looks beautiful.

Comments about GE Cafe C2S985SETSS Free Standing Stainless Steel Dual Fuel Range:
This is a great piece! I'm so happy that I spent the extra money for the dual fuel. Love the burners on the top and that GE changed out the grates from the old painted gray. Those were hard to clean.
Service and delivery comments:
Your delivery was prompt and the delivery guys were awesome. They did not install as we were still under construction. After I took the plastic off, there was a slight dent in the door. Abt took care of it right away! They were awesome!

Blake and Lauren were especially helpful in both information ahead of the sale and with delivery arrangements. I could not be happier with my buying experience!
