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!

Very consistent gas cooking

Comments about GE Cafe GE Free Standing Stainless Dual Fuel Range:
The product is great. I would give it a total 10 if it hadn't blown both appliance oven bulbs after only 5 months of use. Called G.E. service and scheduled an appt. for service. They did so but called me to tell me bulbs are not covered, but would overnight me two new bulbs. I had to put them in myself (bad back and arthritis not withstanding!) There IS a problem out there with bulbs in this model. A neighbor and I chose the same model and she had the same problem.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Preparing to buy a second for new home
Have had this oven for over 6 years and am the kind of person who uses it all the time; didn't buy just for its beautiful looks!!! Love the griddle, burners are fast and a adjust to any temp, and the oven is even and convection feature a joy. Am getting ready to build a new place; when is this style going to be available in slate????
For our last kitchen we selected the best
from Waynesville, NC, United States
My husband has wanted a gas stove for almost 50 years. I wanted an electric oven for easy baking. This is the one appliance we agreed upon and we're very happy with it. We haven't even used the warming drawer yet - what a bonus!
GE Cafe Dual-fuel range
from Stockholm, WI, United States
This is a very nice appliance, and fits well in my kitchen. The gas cooktop is a miracle, especially the large oval center burner: I am a home-brewer, and my beer kettles heat up and boil very well. That being said, I am still in the learning process for baking in an electric oven. My bread and baked goods are coming out rather too crusty. I believe I may be about 10 degrees too hot; however, the "Special Features" settings allow me to reset the large oven temperature to whatever I want. This is an amazing feature. The bottom warming oven works like a charm, and is especially nice for baking small dishes and casseroles. In summary, I would buy this range again in a New York minute. It performs as well as or better than the high-end ranges, and its versatility is incomparable.
Looks sharp, heats well, cooks evenly.
from Belgrade, MT, United States
I have had this stove since late August. We have been very happy. Wish the center burner had a larger BTU capacity and more intense flame for using the griddle. Otherwise we like all the other features.

Boils water extremely fast and I finally have a burner I can put low enough to not boil my gravy. Griddle is a nice feature as well

The range arrived with a broken left front burner and a heating drawer ( bottom oven ) that does not close. Oven thermometer registers less than set heat level. Sad.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The only probloem is that the lower oven is NOT self cleaning
Convection cooking is out of this world
