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.

Comments about GE Cafe C2S985SETSS Free Standing Stainless Steel Dual Fuel Range:
I really like this range. I would like it even more if one of the smaller burners was at the front and one of the large burners was at the back. Good styling at a reasonable price.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After Much Research ...
from Coastal South Carolina
After Much Research- This is the range for me! This is a terrific range. I did a lot of research and decided upon this product. I have had it for about 3 weeks now and really adore it. Very pleased!
I bought this and after several attempts to fix hood light . GE finally replaced the hood.

I have enjoyed my new stove that I purchase 6 months ago
from Morehead City, NC, United States
I selected this model for my new home and absolutely love it! The oven temperature is accurate and everything cooks evenly. Love the stove top and the center grill too.
Overall, I am very pleased with this stove. Would recommend that everyone read the instruction book. It really helped. Two things I would change - Illuminate the digital panel for the oven (hard to read) and make it less sensitive to change. Just leaning across the front can modify the settings. Note: Both of these things were mentioned in the reviews I read before I purchased the stove. Also, it is very easy to scratch the brushed stainless panel that runs across the top in front of the stove burners when you lift and replace the burner racks.

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.
