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?

Bought this back in Dec14. I went with the dual fuel only because I had an electric with a 220 before and didn't want to have to run a new 120 outlet for an all gas stove. It actually works pretty well this way as I was able to run the gas line easily and I prefer the electric oven. Have used the 2nd oven once so far and it does work well for small items...but seems to take a while longer (10min more than main for 400) to get to temperature. As recommended, I ran the self cleaning cycle first. You need to have good ventilation because it does smell and that is expected. But, I have these streaks on my oven window that look like they are between the glass. I can't get them off. Can only see them when I have the oven light on or open the door. Seems like a QA issue maybe. Otherwise, it works fine. Stove top gas burners work well, but some of them do not adjust much when going from 3-4 and so on. Others have also reported this and seems to be as intended. So, don't expect induction level control...but all the burners beats the pants off my old electric. Cleaning the top is a pain as everything seems to show up on the stainless top. Just have to keep up with it. Lastly, I also received the back splash attachment and had to install it myself. NOT a fun project as the screws didn't align properly and when the self clean cycle runs, there is an exhaust streak that shows up on the back splash attachment now that I can't see to get clean. So, another QA design detail issue in my opinion. Overall, a better appliance than my 30yr old electric range, but could use some improvements.

I used to have an all electric stove and just love the dual fuel. The gas cook top is so much faster and responsive than my old electric stove.
Excellent dual fuel stove.
from Oxford, OH, United States
I have had this stove for 7 months now. It is fantastic! Great burners, great double ovens, great look. Be aware that the space behind the range is tight and getting the gas and electric cord in correct place so the range sits close to the wall is difficult.
Best stove ever
This is my second GE Cafe stove. When we moved from the first home and I had to leave my stove, I knew I would someday have another and now have my second one.
Beautiful and Powerful Range
from Germantown, WI, United States
After searching for quite a while for an affordable dual-fuel range, we were excited to purchase the GE Cafe Series range. It's a beautiful addition to our kitchen, and while the top requires more cleaning than our previous smooth-top range, it heats and cooks much faster. The convection oven bakes evenly and consistently, factors that are important to us as a family of bakers. After several months of daily use, we are very pleased with its performance.
Not a wise decision for me.

I realize that there is a learning curve with the changeover to a dual fuel range with a convection oven; however, as an experienced cook, I was not prepared for the number of failures I have experienced. Service tech said that the temperature range of the oven was within normal limits, but I still have well-done pie crust with unfinished filling, over-done granola bars, burnt turkey skin with bloody meat, etc. Only the turkey failure was achieved using convection, the other mishaps were achieved with the simple bake cycle.
Had to have another one.

I am building a new home and wanted another GE convection oven like I had in my old home. It worked beautifully buy had to leave it behind. So I chose to buy another one for my new home. Also wanted to have gas (propane) for my new home. The GE CafÃ© fits the bill for me and cannot wait to start cooking with it.

Awesome range. Only complaint would be the stainless steel around the burners scratches easily. Everything else is wonderful.
from Portsmouth, RI, United States
I bought this dual fuel range to replace another brand .I love this stove. The only drawback to stainless steel is that it scratches easily. Love making pancakes on the center burner!
Beautiful and great features!
