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.

love the 5 burners
from Medford, OR, United States
had another brand before but love this GE so far..
Fun to cook with
from Virginia, United States
Love the oven and the duel fuel, the gas cook top is big and plenty of room on top. The only thing that i would change is that the gas adjustment on the top had more of a med setting, you seem to turn it down quit a bit before the flame lowers. Maybe thats the way a gas top is supposed to be, not sure this is the first i have ever used. Love the griddle for the stove top!!

Misrepresented as dual fuel
from Atlanta, GA, United States
Purchased because it was advertised as dual fuel. The gas burners are retrofitted to accommodate propane. The retrofitted burners do not burn correctly. Solution is for the manufacture to provide both a burner for gas and for propane. I would have expected more from GE especially at the price for this product.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Virginia Beach, VA, United States
I purchased this range following multiple recommendations from friends and family. I have not been disappointed. I would highly recommend this range.
Nice style and functionality
from Atlantic Beach, FL, United States
Builder installed this and we couldn't be happier the quality is there, appearance is first class and easy to use.
Love this except for:
from Florida, United States
We really do love this stove but the stainless is very thin and scratches easily. Very disappointed that we take great care of it but in a day or 2 the stainless scratched. You have to be very careful to not let the stove grates touch anything on the stove. I would have given it a 5 except for that.
Great stove for a baker!
By Jen the potter
from Charlotte, NC, United States
I switched from an all gas range to this dual fuel as I am seriously into bread baking. It is wonderful. I can easily and guickly get it up to the 550 temp I need to preheat my baking stone in the oven. I am so pleased with this range. And of course, the gas cooktop is so responsive and easy to get just the right temp. A rolling boil can be reached quickly, as can an easy simmer.
Easy to use
from Whidbey Island, WA
GE CAFE. A professional look and feel. Without the high end price. Have had it for two weeks. Thus far enjoy it. Easy to use. Looks great. So far easy to clean. Oven heats quick, and gives a signal that temp has been reached. Wish it had a slide out shelf in the oven. Otherwise has everything I need or want.
