We bought this range, the convection microwave and the 980RSS dishwasher for our newly renovated kitchen. A dual fuel range sounded strange at first but we decided it is really the best of both - a gas cook top, which we wanted to replace our old drop in electric range, but we didn't want a gas oven. Buying a separate cook top and oven would have been out of our price range and would not fit in our kitchen without major remodeling. This solved the problem. It has everything. I have used the griddle with the middle oval burner for hamburgers and grilled cheese, and it does a perfect job, way better than a frying pan. Cooking with gas is so much smoother and controlled than electric burners. The convection oven works beautifully too. We did baked salmon and it came out perfect. The range looks great in our 1950s modern house and is extremely easy to clean. Until now I didn't cook much, but now it is fun and I plan to learn some more recipes and get busy with it. The combination of the range and the convection microwave is great, and with the lower oven, we have three ovens, large, medium and small, as well as full featured microwave. Also the griddle does not generate as much smoke as using a frying pan with our electric stove, and it is cleared efficiently by the microwave built in vent fan, so does not set off the smoke alarm. Over all, we are delighted with our new kitchen. One thing about price - once you decide what you want, check ALL the appliance stores as well as the big box stores, as the prices vary a lot for the same appliance, way more than we expected, and we got the best price at a place we did not expect to.

Have owned this range for a couple of months and am afraid to use it -- only used it a few times. The top of the range should be a more durable product other than stainless steel -- it scratches just from gently wiping it --never mind having to worry about spills and getting them wiped up without totally scratching up the stove top. It is a very poor choice to have stainless on the top cooking surface of the cooktop -- would certainly not even consider purchasing this range again -- am already regretting it! Paid too much money for a product that will look totally scratched and overly worn in no time --extremely disappointed it this product. It is pretty to look at, but certainly not practical to use! I think G.E. should create some sort of a fix to cover or replace the existing stainless steel "range top" to the "unhappy people" that have already purchased this easily scratched range top! Paid way to much money to have a new product become old looking and misused when it has not been!

Comments about GE Cafe GE Free Standing Stainless Dual Fuel Range:
This oven was bought to replace an old Kitchenaid Steam Assist oven that broke down during our kitchen renovation. It was certainly much more affordable than the Kitchenaid. I was worried that performance might suffer but the Convection settings seem to do at least as good a job as my old oven and when I measured with an oven thermometer, the temperature distribution was much more even with the GE. My only complaint is that, although the range body is perfectly level, the cooking grates seem to be slightly tilted forward causing oil to pool slightly at the front of my pans. Definitely worth the cost though.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

GE Cafe Series stove

I really like the features of the Cafe line of GE appliances. I chose the dual fuel model and love the features. Very successful Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners and baked goods.

I love this range! It is gorgeous. I really wanted double ovens but they just weren't in my budget so this range, with the lower warming oven really is perfect. I have had a few problems with the burners on the top but they have been solved. This is a fantastic range. I'd definitely recommend.
Easy to use.

I have had my stove a short time. In that time I have been more than satisfied with both surface and oven usage. It has been easy to learn procedures for oven and timer usage. I have enjoyed the wide range of simmer and power boil on surface elements. Clean up is easy and the stovetop surface is easy to keep looking good.

We really like this range. It works so well for canning...handles the larger pots just fine. We looked around at a lot of ranges, but we kept coming back to this one, and I'm glad we did.
Great gas controls.. my first gas stove and I love

GE Cafe Range

We are mostly happy with this product. Only issue was that one burner had to have the valve replaced before we could use it.
Everyone Loves It!
from Salt Lake City, UT, United States
Researched lots of dual fuel ranges and when it came down to 2, all of my friends said "get a GE!" So glad I did. Love the features esp the power boil burner and baking drawer (as opposed to just a warming drawer). The oven cooks so evenly on convection - so much better than our old range. My only wish is that it had a hidden/covered bottom heating element.
