4.0 out of 5 stars Very happy with the range October 3, 2012
I just wrote a long review of this product and Amazon deleted it so I am going to do the short version for my follow-up and maybe come back and add to it if/when I have time.

I am happy with this purchase, which I've had for 2 months. It cooks beautifully and with even heat, it is made of strong materials and the cast iron grates, especially, feel super heavy-duty. Stove top cleans up easily with soap and water. Oven bakes and roasts wonderfully (especially in the convection setting). My food has never looked so perfectly browned.

I wanted to give it 4.5 stars but didn't have the option. So, I gave it 4 (and not 5) stars because the stainless stovetop area does scratch easily, although I knew that going in and have been careful with it. The knobs do get warm when the oven is on, but not so much so that I can't handle them with a bare hand. There is also a fan in the rear that comes on when the oven is on (and for a period of time after, until it cools). It is quiet enough and doesn't bother us. I don't think a range of this size can NOT have a fan to help cool it and given the design, it has to be in the rear.

All in all, I love my new range. It is beautiful to look at and it makes beautiful food! I hope it lasts and will come back and post if I have any new problems with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very happy cook! November 6, 2012
I am someone who cooks every day, and just renovated my entire kitchen. I looked into a high end professional range however, considering the cost of that along with the required hood, it was over budget and over kill. I found the Cafe range to have so much to offer for the price and highly recommended. I also purchased the microwave convection oven to go above it which also serves as the hood vent. I have never had an oven that was this even. Two mini muffin pans at the same time with every muffin the same color! Some reviews complained about the sound of the convection fan but mine is so quiet that I thought it wasn't working. The knobs never got to hot at all.
Be aware and make sure you run the oven empty before using AND THE BROILER. There is a smell until this is heated off.
It's only been a few weeks but I would highly recommend this range especially for the money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the Quality I Expected May 5, 2013
We have had this range since April and after some tweaking by the GE rep the oven is now working better. There are now scratches on the front stainless trim due to the burner grates rubbing against it quickly when lifting out (heavy). Not fun having scratches on a new appliance. The coating on the non-stick griddle for the middle burner started peeling off after the first use. GE sent us a replacement which I just received and the coating looks almost bare in spots -- very poor quality -- I will not use it. So if you buy this range, you'd want to think about how to utilize that oval elongated middle burner. I'd prefer it were a round one. We bought this range after returning a Viking D3 which did not work from the start and because they didn't have their own repair people, and because we hated paying $4k for something that was defective from the start, we got the GE instead. GE say they are the only manufacturer with their own service reps, which does appeal.
If I were remodeling a kitchen again I would be sure to have a separate oven and cooktop. There are so many more options available. Free-standing ranges seem to be limited in choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive, but worth every penny March 26, 2013
We purchased the dual fuel version of this range (gas cooktop and electric ovens). The gas cooktop has excellent burners - they simmer at extremely low heat and do just as well with high heat. The main oven BAKES extremely well. (My wife was the Betty Crocker Homemaker of the year when she was in high school.) We haven't tried the drawer oven, but we have faith that it could easily handle a caserole or buns while baking another item at a different temperature in the main oven.
One thing we found out when buying this range: it is classed as free standing AND as a slide-in. For those wanting a free-standing oven (including us), GE offers a matching stainless steel "backsplash" JXS80SS, which definitely dresses up the cooktop.
After the nightmares we had with the Electrolux EW30GF65GS range that (thankfully) we were able to invoke the "lemon policy", we are absolutely thrilled that this GE Cafe range actually performs the way it's supposed to!
Yes, it was fairly expensive, but it has been worth every penny!

1.0 out of 5 stars If only GE had customer support...... November 10, 2013
Verified Purchase
The cook top is just perfect. I have been suffering for a while with a glass top, and the superiority of gas is hard to describe. The different burner sizes give amazing control and I love it.
The oven, however, is a problem. It won't get to temperature, and so the convection does not work.
Apparently when it is on, there is also a slight gas leak. So slight, I had not noticed it. Left the house, came back in and was alarmed at the smell.
Called GE, got a computer answering phone tree. They auto generated a service tech for a week later. WOW.
My stove is now a very large paper weight until they come.
LOUSY service. Went from being thrilled to terribly disappointed.
I had used this range, in the dual fuel variety, in a rental unit a while back. That oven worked ok, but the fan noise was VERY obtrusive.
This one is quieter, but still loud WHEN it works. Now if it just wasn't trying to kill me.....

Great price. Receipt was in just over a week. Haven't installed it yet but that's because of the gas company hook up requirements.
