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?

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.

Comments about GE Cafe C2S985SETSS Free Standing Stainless Steel Dual Fuel Range:
Nice piece of equipment. takes a long time to pre-heat but does a nice job when it is up to temp. Only other wish would be a button to toggle the convect and have different speeds. I guess I will have to go to Viking for that.

I have had my GE range for about 4 months now and just love it!!
Love my new range!
from New Jersey, United States
best features: dual fuel so my baking is consistent and even. the baking drawer I use all the time, and having the full sized oven is great when I'm doing a holiday dinner and have multiple dishes baking. Love the griddle for the center burner - I use it all the time for cooking eggs, grilled cheese sandwiches, etc.
from Metrowest Boston
I am very happy with my purchase. The quality and ease of use have met my expectations, which were high given all of the research that I conducted. My only issue is with the griddle construction, food tends to stick, it is difficult to clean and easily scratches. The griddle should, without a doubt be cast iron. I have inquired with GE as to whether this is an option (which I would gladly pay for), but sadly it is not.

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!
