Product Overview



GE Cafe CGS985SETSS gas range

has been called an amateur chef's dream. If you want a restaurant grade range for your kitchen that's still cost effective, then this is the range for you. It delivers the quality and elegance that you deserve. Check out some features of interest!

Enjoy superior heating through the gas cooktop.
Five sealed burners
at various different sizes provide greater control and cooking efficiency. There are two high-powered burners on the cooking surface, including a
20,000 BTU Tri-Ring Burner
. This packs the power of three burners in one, bringing water to a boil quickly and enabling you to prepare pasta in minutes before serving a meal, but still hitting those lower temperatures as well. The second high-powered burner is 17,000 BTU and has an excellent temperature range for anything you need to cook.

Precise Simmer burner
is low power at only 5,000 BTU and is perfect for sauces, soups, and any other delicate foods. An
oval burner
in the center of the cooktop brings added versatility. This bridge burner is great for breakfast foods or burgers.

cast iron continuous grates
are super durable. Moving heavy pots across the burners will no longer be a chore! The
deep recessed cooktop
keeps spills under control, so when you take the grates off it's a breeze to wipe down, and special stainless steel cleaner will keep it shining!

The oven is pretty spacious at
5.4 cu. ft. capacity
. It heats up in no time, will cook your food evenly and completely, and does not leave random cold spots. The oven is also well-insulated, meaning the stove door and neighboring cabinets don't get hot and it doesn't overheat your kitchen. After you’re done using it, it cools off quickly.

This oven's
convection mode
bakes and roasts beautifully. If you want perfectly browned foods or tender, well-cooked meats, look no further! An added
meat probe
teams up with convection cooking to make fixing anything from chicken to steak a no-brainer.

There are
three racks in the oven
, instead of the standard two. Multiple racks give you the freedom to cook several things at once, whether it's three pizzas or a few trays of cookies! Concentrated heat through
will eliminate oven scrubbing and scraping from your kitchen cleaning tasks.

Beneath the main oven, there is a
1.0 cu. ft. electric cooking drawer
which has a temperature range of 140 to 450 degrees. This drawer is a life-saver during the holidays, good for anything from vegetables and side dishes to Christmas cookies and pies. Or you can simply use it as a warming drawer!

There's a
glass touchscreen
at the front of the range that operates the main oven. No more reaching across a hot stovetop to get to the controls! For those who find the touchpad controls too sensitive, this range includes a
control lockout
that prevents you from accidentally switching the oven on or off.

This oven is a perfect match for the
GE Cafe CVM1790SSSS over-the-range microwave
, which can also serve as a vent hood. If you want to use it as freestanding range, it pairs well with the
GE Cafe JXS80SS backguard
. This stainless steel backsplash dresses it up quite nicely.

All-in-all, the GE CGS985SETSS range is a cooking powerhouse. It offers accurate and even temperatures, has sturdy components, and looks classy without being ostentatious. If entertaining is your thing, then you and GE Cafe could be a match made in heaven.

Cafe 30" Stainless Steel Gas Slide-In Sealed Burner Range - Convection is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 536.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Oven fan noise is unbearable We just renovated our kitchen, had a GE profile which was half the price of this oven and we loved it for 9 years, figured how could we go wrong with another GE oven. The fan runs throughout the cooking cycle (and we are not talking convection mode) and then about 20 minutes after, it is absolutely terrible, it is as annoying as a running toilet. It has ruined my love of cooking, we waited many years for a new kitchen and now we face the hassle of a return and finding a stove that will fit as well with our new countertop which was custom cut for the Cafe stove. We do have a repair scheduled Jan 9th, if it is fixed I will update.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Range top is Great! Lower oven is a plus feature! So far we have been disappointed with the baking aspect in the oven. The convection bake mode does not convert when a traditional oven degree temperature is entered. We have tried this option many times and have been unable to use the convection feature. Our bagged Thanksgiving turkey took over six hours (rather than 3 1/2) to cook at a traditional 350 degrees. This was unacceptable since we had company. We have purchased and tested an oven thermometer, and find that the oven takes much longer to preheat than indicated on the stove display. At the display point the 350 degree oven is actually 260 degrees, a 400 degree oven is actually 325 degrees etc !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Range with Great features Pros: A great range. 2 hi BTU burners, that can bring a large pot to boil in just a couple minutes. The highest BTU burner also works great in a simmer setting which gives a flexibility in use of the range. The simmer burner that keeps an even flame. Excellent convection performance for the oven cooking a 20lb turkey evenly and easily. Continuous grates make good use of range. Other plus over ranges like Bertazzoni that do not allow for self cleaning. Cons: Broiler is uneven and browning takes time. Stainless steel takes time to clean and takes greater care. Warming drawer can dent easily. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Value I looked at a number of alternatives by other manufacturers before settling on the Cafe. Money was not a major consideration, and I could have spent more on others. Had I done so, it would have been for the panache associated with other mabufacturers, as the Cafe performs as well, if not better, than all others. I've read the complaints about oven noise, and frankly don't share those views. All convection ovens make some noise, and I don't find the Cafe's to be any worse than others. The overall performance and versatility can't be matched. "Warming Oven" is a misnomer, as the fact that it can be set as high as 400 allows it to be used as a second oven. My only complaint is that it scratches like crazy no matter how careful you are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A joy to cook with...and it looks great too! Purchased this range to replace an existing range in our new home. The old range was an artisy Italian range that was probably purchased by the previous owners for the look versus function. Now, I have the looks and function with my new GE Cafe range. I love the control panel in the front...no more reaching across a hot range to get to the control panel. The oven cooks with amazing precision. And the cooktop, boils water so quickly, making quick dinner prep so easy. The oven fan is a little noisy when cooking at temps over 400 degrees, but that does not really bother me to much. Overall, I love it and it looks great in my kitchen. I am now replacing my other appliances with GE Cafe products to complete the look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best range I have ever owned I absolutely love this range. The gas cook top configuration provides me with flexibility when cooking big meals and it can boil water in no time flat. The electric oven heats up quickly and bakes like a dream. The unit is insulated so well that the cabinets on either side of the unit do not get warm like they did with my old unit. Before getting this range I had to be careful not to put things like chocolate chips in a cabinet along side of the range or they would melt but not with this one. I cannot think of one negative thing to say about this product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from cafe gas range I have used the GE Cafe range for appx two years.The fan is a little loud. The stove top grates easily scratch the stainless. The control touch pad is extremely sensitive, it has been turned off by accident if you happen to lean to reach for something and your. body touches it. The heat from the stove top has melted the laminate on the cabinet doors that are above the range. I love the appearance. I also like the simmer burner and wish there were two simmer burners It has also damaged the handles on my cookware.. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is of high quality!!! I searched for two years for a new gas range and finally found what I wanted. The GE Cafe has met all of my standards and then some. I was skeptical at first after reading some negative reviews. The fan makes a nominal sound and is not intrusive. The convection works like a dream. The stainless steel is easy to clean using a sponge with dish detergent and wiping with a dry microfiber cloth. The appearance is sturdy and handsome. I love it. Will be adding the other appliances in the GE Cafe line too. Buy it, you will be glad you did. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
