Does GE require venting for this range?

Asked by: cologuy
Hi cologuy- This is Sue at GE Appliances. Thanks for viewing our Café Series! While a vent hood is not required by GE, it is recommended. Vents help to effectively remove smoke, grease, odors and moisture from the room. We encourage you to check local codes for any venting requirements. Thanks for checking with us!

Dual fuel range?

Why do many of these reviews talk about "dual fuel" range? This is an electric range. Makes me wonder if the reviews are accurate.

Customer Reviews

5.4 cu. ft. Electric Range with Self-Cleaning Convection Oven in Stainless Steel is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 703.
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 5 out of 5 by from Great range! We bought our slide-in-range the last of July, 2016. I have used it for 3 months now. It replaces our old drop-in-range and it fit into the space beautifully. I wasn't sure I would like the glass counter top and worried it would be to hard to clean. I have found it fairly easy to keep clean, but some days it does take a little longer to clean than others. I don't regret my decision to go with the glass top instead of coils. In addition to the cleaner that came with the stove, I also bought the scraper at my local hardware store, which has come in handy. I have made several batches of jam, using my old speckled navy blue water bath pot, and had no problems. I find that I have to start everything on 9, high would be 10, and then drop the heat down to about 4, otherwise it takes forever for my food to start cooking. YES, the bottom oven drawer WORKS! I have used it several times and are thrilled to have a second oven. I am 64 and didn't want my large oven to be located at the bottom of the range. The oven drawer solved the problem. I haven't tried the self-cleaning oven yet. I have tried using the convection oven and don't like it, so I am happily using the traditional oven setting. We did order the FULL EXTENSION RACK, I think the number is WB48T10088, and it works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vintage Flair! The GE Café Range is one of the most beautiful ranges I have ever seen and I know how the pleasure of cooking with it. I love the knobs in the front of the unit. So much safer then reaching over hot burners. They are vintage looking and quite sturdy! The warming drawer was such an added bonus plus a Cast Iron pan included! My most favorite feature is the lack of a back panel. This one has a very polished, low profile vent, adding to it's character.

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 5 out of 5 by from It works great! I love having the griddle feature and the warming spot on the top of the range. The baking drawer is great for family dinners when you need a second oven. I've had this product about 6 months and have had no problems with it. It replaced a new range of a different brand that had a faulty oven and seemed to be irreparable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous range for real cooks Chosen after months of research for kitchen renovation. Changed from a gas cooktop/electric wall oven to dual-fuel range with NO regrets and got a Warming/Baking drawer without losing cabinet space besides (yes, IT IS A WARMING DRAWER). The main oven is huge inside, but the racks are not as heavy-duty as those in my original GE Profile and bow under excessive weight (cast-iron dutch oven full of stew), the convection oven baked multiple racks of cookies with no problem, and the "Probe" feature makes cooking roasts foolproof. The stove burners are amazing: the front 20K BTU burner boils water in minutes and then turns down to allow a wine reduction over hours (it can be a little twitchy at times...), the front 17K BTU burner can boil the spaghetti while you saute Aglio e Olio on the tri-burner - nice! On the down side, the stainless does not clean up well and is easily scratched when moving the grates, and the knobs don't click off and can be turned without pushing them in.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor design 1-Touch screen on front of range is activated unintentionally by the cook standing in front of the range, reaching for the back burners, or cleaning the cooktop; changes existing settings.The keypad can be deactivated but it also shuts off gas to the cooktop so you can't cook. 2- 50 weeks after installation we put cooktop grates inside oven and ran "self clean" function. The oven door automatically locks during self cleaning. When the cleaning cycle was over, the oven door did not unlock. We couldn't use the cooktop or the oven for a week, waiting for service. The only way to access the lock mechanism is to force the oven door open enough to cut the lock rod off. It damaged the door, destroyed the lock, and the stove still "thinks" the door is locked, so we can't turn on the oven. Horrible design. Lastly, GE started 1 warranty at purchase, not installation. At 11 months of light use, GE refused consideration, insisting on purchase date as the start date. No more GE products in this home. GE website will not upload photo.

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.
