Product Reviews
Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Looks great and works better! We love the way this brute looks almost as well as we like the way it works. Excellent fit and finish inside and outside. The digital oven controls are intuitive and the range top features five elements which fit all of my pots and pans perfectly. Oven is easy to clean, stove top elements work with blazing speed. Best stove I've ever had. 8/22/12
Rated 4 out of 5 by This range is very impressive looking and works very well. We renovated our kitchen this spring and after hours of research i choose the ge cafe electric range. I love the looks of the range and have made many meals already. I did need to get new pots and pans as mine were30 years old and no longer level on the bottom. 8/28/12
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not as useful as the 40-year-old GE range it replaced Pros: - Looks good, not Avocado color! - Knobs on front are easy to use - Choice of burner sizes is handy Cons: - Harder to keep clean than conventional range, need to scrub it off after every use. - Range sits 3/4" away from wall, needed to fabricate a custom backsplash to fill gap. - Back lip is short, stuff can fall behind range. - Broiler has two settings: too hot & not hot enough. Would prefer single setting half-way inbetween. - Burners cycle on and off like a cheap hotplate. Hard to get even heat. Won't stay hot to boil large pot quickly. - Baking drawer is slow to heat, uneven. Used it once, A storage drawer would be more useful. - Burner failed after 6 months. Bad sign. - Has typical shortcomings of radiant cooktop--slow to cool down, pans dance around if not perfectly flat. 1/10/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very satisfied, design, features and performance I have owned this range for a year now. There are probably some features that I have not explored fully as I do not cook extensively. I would suggest browsing the owner's manual online to read about all of the features. There are many! The convection oven works well and the fan is fairly quiet. I like the 3 oven racks for versatile configurations. The electronic controls are sensitive and do tend to get bumped easily. My microwave is above this range so I do tend to hit the oven controls when using my microwave. Just hit cancel when you hear the beep of an oven control being turned on when this happens. You also have to be very light fingered when you do want to use the electronic controls, as holding down the button too forcefully will turn the start button to off. (It is like hitting the on button and off button simultaneously). Love the smooth cooktop surface, it has always cleaned easily and has not left a spot that I cannot get off with a little scrubbing! The bottom oven drawer has been used. Though slow to warm up, it does cook things fairly well. I cooked a pan of lasagna and a casserole at the same time in it last week and they cooked perfectly in the allotted time given in the recipes. The metal used on the inside of the oven seems less heavy duty to look at, it is porcelain, but seems rather thin. I have not cleaned the oven yet and am worried if I do it may discolor and turn dull. The racks are a dark color, almost black which is nice for hiding any baked on food. However the manual suggests that you do not self-clean these in your oven as they may dull. The racks do not have the nice glide rollers that you might find in some other ovens. It would be nice if GE could add these as an update in their future models. The oven is huge and you can bake at different levels at the same time. I do not mind the open oven element, as I believe it helps the oven to heat up faster without an oven shield over the element. It also is easier to change the element if it should ever burn out, being a do-it-yourselfer. I had not had a convection oven before this one, so I am still learning how to use it. It is nice that it just adjusts the oven temperature in regular recipes for this convection cycle. Baking at a regular bake cycle can also be used for instances like baking pies. I like the low back profile of the unit. It looks great with my new granite backsplash going above it across the back vent yet leaving the back vent unobstructed. The sides of the range are a black glossy crinkle finish. Because my kitchen counters are 23 inches in depth (shallow), the black shows about 2.5 inches on either side of the range, and the entire range sticks out from the cupboards about 4 inches. It still does not look obtrusive and most counter depths are deeper than this, so it would look even better. It just looks very sleek without the usual back panel control found on most ranges, and the stainless and sleek design and controls makes it look so less cluttered in your kitchen design. Love the knob controls for the cooktops. Heavy feeling stainless steel and easy to keep clean. The cooktop elements heat up fast and love the versatility of each as they have a small pan setting and a large pan setting depending on which way you turn the knob. I have yet to turn on the incorrect burner as they are laid out intuitively. This was a real problem on my other range which had a back control. A few other features: This model has a lock out for these front knobs that control the burners, so small children cannot turn the knobs when you are not around. You can choose to turn on the clock or for a more sleek look, leave the clock totally off so the control panel is dark. The oven beeps when the correct preheating temperature is reached, another great feature. The oven window is black, it may appear clear in some of the GE advertisements. 1/11/13
