Summary: Bought this range about 3 years ago after doing a lot of review reading. I did read that the stove was hard to clean and just attributed it to bad cleaners. Wrong! I have to wipe up specks and spills immediately or they stain the steel and nothing will take it off except copious rubbing with magic...
It replaces a dual fuel GE range that I liked until I had to continually repair it

Summary: I have been using this for a couple weeks. It replaces a dual fuel GE range that I liked until I had to continually repair it. This new one is strictly gas fired. It uses only 20 amp 120v circuit for all else. It does make noise after shutting off the oven, but not that much.
Summary: Bought this range a year ago.... It works well however it scratches easily. You have to be extra careful when removing the grills. So upset to see an expensive stove scratched so easily. We are very careful all the time and still .... Now it looks old and yet it's not!
in perfect condition and the delivery men waited while I unpacked ...

Summary: The oven was delivered timely - right in the window, in perfect condition and the delivery men waited while I unpacked and inspected the appliance. The GE Cafe appliance is amazing. The stainless is also on the top of the stove - which was a must for me.
Summary: This is the best range I've ever owned. I've had it for just a bit over a year now; we purchased this after moving into a new home to replace the existing electric cooktop. We principally use cast iron for cooking, which doesn't perform nearly as well on electric ranges as it does over gas.
The replacements are easily knocked off and/or simply drop off

Summary: NO STARS !!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is junk. The knobs broke the first year and the replacements do NOT fit. They stick out about 1/2inch more than the old broken knobs. DANGEROUS. The replacements are easily knocked off and/or simply drop off. Cheap plastic. Labels with temps now peeling off-looks terrible.
Summary: We have been very happy with our Café. At the same time, I do live in fear of it. The 4 burners have been pushed farther to the sides to accommodate the 5th long burner in the middle. Since we have our counters flush up against it, there's a real risk of something on the counter catching on fire.
The burner just bended pretty noticeable, and it’s damage from the heat

Summary: The company, unfortunately, doesn't stand behind its product. The biggest tri-ring burner got deformed by itself. We use this stove at home, normal household. We are not cooking in big amounts, just for the family of five (now four, and no long cooking processes at all).
Summary: the 5 burners are great and the spacious oven with lower cooking drawer make it so easy to cook large meals all at once.the only negative with this stove is the non-stick griddle,its definitely not non-stick.
Summary: Very pretty to look at but NOT RELIABLE AT ALL> We've had our range repaired 5 times and it continues to have problems with the oven. The electronic panel has been replaced, the sensor, the thermostat, and they even replaced some RF filter (for interference from our local fire station??
