is part of GE Appliances' Cafe Series. It is a traditional stainless steel smoothtop range, but it also has a convection oven. The extra touches the Cafe Series adds will make you feel and look like a professional chef. This 30 inch range is a premier appliance inspired by the world-class restaurant kitchens used every day by professional chefs. The design and features reflect the demanding nature of those kitchens and the cooks who use them daily.



has a combined capacity of 6.4 cubic feet; the
main oven is a 5.4 cubic feet
, and the
baking drawer below adds 1 cubic foot
of oven space. Ever wanted to just make a small batch of cookies or other treats without turning on the entire oven? The versatility of having two ovens means more flexibility with larger baking projects or family dinners. You can put the main course in the oven, and the sides in the baking drawer at a different temperature. The baking drawer has a range of 140-450 degrees.

True European Convection system
uses fans to keep heat precise to shorten cooking times. The difference between True European and regular convection is that the latter does not have an additional heating element within. True European Convection includes involves a fan blowing additional heat around a dish, while regular convection just circulates the oven air better.

This range wouldn't be complete without some of your favorite options. Choose to
when a mess has been made and never have to remove the racks. They're heavy duty and built to withstand the high heat of the self-clean cycle. If you'd rather clean later, just delay the cleaning cycle until you head off to work. Cleaning isn't the only thing you can delay though. Set your oven to bake on your time with
Delay Bake
. As an added bonus, you get a meat probe that automatically tells you the temperatures of meats as they cook in your oven.

But the


is not just an amazing oven, it is also an amazing range. The black ceramic glass cooktop looks beautiful, and it features five burners, including dual elements that allow you to tailor power and size of the heating area to the specific need of each item. Each burner has a job. One excels at simmering, another at boiling. It even comes with a
griddle system
, so you can make pancakes and eggs with ease! Whatever you need, this cooktop can do it.

As far as technology goes, the


has just enough. A digital keypad, temperature display, and several function icons light up, show you what is happening at all times. Surface and element indicator lights tell you when the cooktop is hot and too hot to touch. A
Control Lock
keeps little ones safe, and if you need it,
Sabbath Mode
is available.

Cafe 30" Stainless Steel Electric Slide-In Smoothtop Range - Convection is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 163.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Buy it. Love love love this range. I use the baking drawer daily. The large oven is very very spacious; so if it's just my husband and I, we use the drawer. Heats quickly and cooks very fast. you may want to check your food 15 minutes earlier than you use to. The large oven, fantastic. Lots of space, convection wonderful, ease of use---awesome, and has a lock feature so little ones can not turn it on. Stove top cooks close to having gas! What a bonus this is. Bravo to the engineers who planned and executed this marvelous RANGE. Two things they could add---roller racks and covered element. That was not stopping me to buy this range and I'm glad I did however, I would have really enjoyed the new features mentioned. : ) Food comes out perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this range! I was looking for a slide-in style freestanding range so I could show off my backsplash and saw this GE Café at the store. I was visually drawn to it as it was far better looking then any range there. It has all of the features I was looking for including rear venting, the bridge element, 2 variable size elements, a warming element, and a full lower oven that tops out at 450 degrees. A surprise is that, without the back electronics plate, the range seems to have much more working space and the pots actually vent up into the overhead microwave exhaust hood - even on the front burners! I am tall, so have not had any issues with brushing against the electronic control panel on the front.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Oven Not Maintaining Set Temperature Range was installed 6 weeks ago. It looks great, it upgraded the appearance of the kitchen. I'm encountering a problem with the oven, it does not maintain the temperature I've set. It takes 15 minutes to reach temperature but once food is placed in the oven the temperature drops and it never reaches the set temperature again. It's been as much as 75 degrees below the set temp. Very disappointing! I realize I can recalibrate the oven temp but it initially reaches the correct temperature. Will be calling for service and update my review based on the results of the service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from absolutely love it! Had this installed about month ago when renovating the kitchen. First, all of our visitors comments on how great it looks: beefy steel knobs, controls upfront and not in back, well laid out control panel. It completes the look of a top-of-the-line kitchen. Second, incredible functionality. Wife loves the baking drawer and the meat thermometer that can be plugged into the side panel of the interior of the oven to monitor the temperature on the control panel. Very easy to clean. Very easy to use. Heats evenly and well. Did extensive research before purchasing and viewed many different competing models from competing brands. This is the BEST electric (non-induction) range on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from loving my new oven!! I bought this oven when i renovated my kitchen countertops. My old oven was a GE drop-in that came with the house when we bought it 22 years ago. I am thrilled with my new oven; it cooks quickly and evenly. This oven roasts vegetables about 1 hour 15 minutes faster than my old one and they come out with a nice crispy exterior - so tasty!! Dinners are so much quicker now that I am enjoying cooking again!! I love the cast iron griddle and have used it to cook steaks and salmon with excellent results. I haven't used the lower oven drawer yet because i keep forgetting it is there!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy but not great Happy with my purchase BUT there are definitely things that could be improved upon...controls are inconveniently placed, you must back up & crouch slightly to set timer/oven temp etc. Also have repeatedly turned off oven by leaning too close to controls. Takes longer than I would have anticipated to preheat oven. 12" burner produces so much heat that even on low liquids boil at a full boil. Minor aggravations. Chose this range because other slide-in models no longer fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Stainless Beauty and High Value Too As soon as my husband spotted this stove he had to show me. We both agreed that it was a great choice for us because it would complement another manufacturer's professional series refrigerator and dishwasher that have been in place for a few years. We had an existing bisque GE stove and microwave that were still working after 12 years and were leaning toward replacing with a GE stainless steel model to complete a coordinated kitchen. We saved a substantial amount of money by going with GE; however, we think GE offers superior value and a new GE refrigerator and dishwasher is in our future. The stove is a pleasure to use. We highly recommend GE appliances to all our family an friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mostly pleased A great looking stove with many excellent features, lock system, element sizes that fit all my pots, baking oven drawer is very handy. On the down side, the convection oven does not bake uniformly. When baking 3 pans of buns, the buns on the top rack have a burned top, the middle rack is great, and the bottom rack is under baked. This is the fourth convection oven I have owned and the only one that is unreliable when using convection bake. It has taken quite a while to have the bake and roast controls accept a variety of temperature settings on the first try.
