Comments about GE Cafe 30" Slide-In Gas Range - Stainless Steel:
I was so looking forward to getting this stove unfortunately it has not lived up to my expectations, I bought it for baking and the gas oven (I thought I was buying gas top, electric oven - my mistake) just does not do a good job baking, I'm having to guess at all my tried and true recipes as to adding at least 25 deg to the heat suggested and leaving things in for at least 10 minutes or more, to make sure they are cooked. This includes bread, cakes, casseroles. The top of the stove has grooves where the top sits on top of the oven, they get tons of dirt in them which is almost impossible to get clean. The grids are big and heavy and a pain to wash, have to wash them in my laundry tub.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

First month, the burner knob "trim/skirts" melted....turns out these are plastic and after a long day cooking Thanksgiving dinner items, they could not take the heat and deformed. Stove arrived with one oven bulb burned out. second oven bulb burnt-out with in 3 months (it's not like it's 'on' very often)... oh ya, GE SELLs bulbs too! Also the metal knobs get REALLY hot ... OUCH...doesn't leave a mark, but would cause a child to cry if they touched it. knobs obviously went through some revision and we got a mixed set. A few are labeled with "big" letters and the other 2 with smaller letters. Flame on one large burner adjusts poorly. from setting 3-8 no difference is flame. only have had it for 9 mo and already smell unburned gas when using it. and yes we cleaned the gas orifice etc. Expected a lot more from this NEW oven! (The last oven we owned (other brand) lasted 10 yrs and never a problem like this, until the control board failed.)

I got this when I moved into my new house. In general, it is excellent. I had a service man come out because the front burner didn't burn properly and he took one of my husband's tools and filed it to try to make a makeshift miniature screwdriver to fix behind the knob. He didn't fix it and said that he would come out when he got his tool back from someone else. Haven't seen him, yet; and, I even called the cell number he left behind. The oven light went out within the second month.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The product quality did not stand up to GE name. After 40+ years of buying GE appliances I am very disappointed. The product arrived broken.

We bought this stove in October as we renovated out kitchen, replacing an electric model. We like the gas cooktop but the oven seems to vent an exorbitant amount of heat compared to other ovens. I don't see us using the oven in the summer months if the A/C is running.
great looking stove

so happy to have made the purchase looks great in our kitchen, no issues other than when we first used the stove it smelt like something was melting but no issues since
not worth the extra money

Widow does not come clean in the self cleaning cycle.

I've only had it a short time and I Love my Stove! I bake and cook a lot and it's so enjoyable to have an oven and range that keep temperature correctly!
Beautiful design and excellent quality
from Illinois, United States
Great unit, working well so far. Bought this along with a matching GE frig and they look great together. We looked at the higher priced version of this (with duel jets on the large burners and the griddle in the middle) but this unit is performing just fine. It nice to have a middle burner that you can keep just one pan on vs having to use the entire griddle. This way we can have 5 things going at once. Don't need it all the time but nice to have it when you do.
Perfect convection baking
from Boston MA
I'm a professional pastry chef and I was so excited to get a convection oven at home. The results are even better than I had hoped. Perfect even baking (more even than my professional ovens at the bakery) and amazing convection roasting results.
