Summary: I bought this when it first came out. I was looking for a dual fuel with a double oven. I use the oven drawer almost every day. It is so convenient for big meals because the drawer holds so much. The cast iron grates take care and you have to lift them straight up or you can scratch the stainless surface. I learned the hard way. This stove is a dream. Performs the best of any stove I've ever owned, including my Jenn Air.
Summary: This is by far the best stove I have ever purchased. It was expensive, but looks great and I also bought the french-door counter-depth refrigerator as well. Both have worked flawlessly, and I've had them almost 3 years. Nothing is wrong with the stove. It heats correctly, cooks correctly, and is easy to clean.
Summary: Just got it today and the oven does not work at all. Thought the top was more or less working, but currently at 25 mins to brown a pound of ground beef on high - most of the pink is gone and now at a very light tan. Nothing appears to be working correctly. Glad I did not try to boil a pot of water for pasta. New range should be here Thursday morning. Will update my post and hopefully improve the rating then.
Summary: I started off being disappointed with this range. After one year, I hate it. And I'm still paying it off. The burners are quirky because of how they detect the pan's position. You can use pans that meet GE's requirements; it doesn't matter. Start just about every job with the burner on 'high' and then turn it down, otherwise you'll grow old waiting for it to get generate heat. The front-mounted touch pad is the worst feature.
Summary: Have had a GE Cafe Duel Fuel, slide-in range less than a year, problems with temperature range of oven. After 4 service calls, GE replaced it with same model. Have had this one three months, same problem - must wait 10-15 min. AFTER bell rings, for it to get to 'set' temp. There can be a 50 degree fluctuation either side of desired temp., while food is cooking, so food can take MUCH longer to cook and be under/over done.
Summary: I was very impressed with the customer service at AJ Madison. They were friendly and knowledgableand they actually answered the phone. I would use this company again and highly recommend it to others. The GE Cafe stove is a great electric stove to cook on. The configurations on the stove top all have been useful and the second oven is such an asset. If you are looking for an electric professional style stove, the GE Cafe is your answer.
