Having watched an envied the cooking show chefs with French door ovens, when it came time to upgrade our kitchen, I researched which would be the best. The GE model got the best ratings, and I agree. It is accurate, attractive, has very user-friendly controls, and the fact that I can open one door with one hand and have both open (at eye level) is marvelous.View More Reviews
Have had this for a few months now, love how it cooks evenly( no more burnt cookies.lol) Easy and simple to use.
Not a cheap oven, but I doubt you could find a better one on the market. It has all the features we need or could ask for and has performed flawlessly. Very easy to use as a simple oven or as a very full-feature oven. Controls are very intuitive.
This is a superb oven. It heats quickly, the fans are quiet and the outside of the oven including the doors remains cool to the touch. I am very, very pleased with the quality of this oven.
This oven was a replacement for an existing build-in. This unit has all the features one could hope for. It heats evenly and quickly. It is very quiet. The controls are straight forward and yet comprehensive. The mulit-level broiling is a great feature. The cafe doors are a major improvement over the single drop down door found on most ovens. The racks on ball bearing slides is a major enhancement over traditional oven racks. The tones used for timer and warning are very pleasant. Having the oven notify us at various stages through our smart phones is very handy as well.
I pay a lot for this product but I have wanted one for a long time I think it's going to be worth it
We are thrilled with our new wall oven. The advantage of the French doors is spectacular for me as I am a retired nurse with a bad back and now I do not have to bend or reach over the oven door while preparing meals or cleaning or maintaining oven. My husband and myself cook and bake everyday and I bake my own breads, cakes and desserts, so I feel blessed to own your product. We sometimes prepare foods for large groups and for family gatherings, as my husband is one of 8 children, so our new wall oven will get greater than average use. My husband selected our new oven, so I guess you can say, that GE has gained the confidence of the male perspective with this edition. Additionally, as a rule we opt to eat at home, most times, due to dietary restrictions the desire for prime foods. We often entertain friends who enjoy watching us cook, so now we really will shine with our new GE Café series!~ Ty for your ingenuity!~ mab
I absolutely love my French Door wall oven. I am short (5'1") so I had difficulty getting items out of my oven. I had to step to the side to remove items out of my oven and often times I burned my arms. This oven is perfect, and it looks fantastic. I get tons of compliments on my oven.
My husband suggested THIS oven for our new home build. He knows I like to bake and I love it! It has great features and has everything we could've asked for in an oven! I especially like being able to close the double door with one hand.
does everything I expected it to do and more-effiently!
This is a very well built unit. Extremely heavy! We mounted at counter height and love the french doors and heavy duty roll out racks. So far, no issues. Controls feel solid. A little expensive, but the quality shows.
Wanted this oven for a long time. Built new home and knew this was for me. Easy to place things in and remove. The Wi-if feature is so handy for when you're away!
We love the french door, so nice to be able to open the door and reach straight in to put things in the oven or take out without the stretching and bending down.
OVEN DOES EVERYTHING YOU COULD ASK, COMBO CONVECTION AND STANDARD FEATURES. HEAVY DUTY APPLIANCE, COMMERCIAL QUALITY AND THE DOORS ARE GENIUS!
I have wanted a oven like this for years, it is so eazy taking out a large roasting pan and not leaning over a big hot door. I LOVE LOVE IT
I have been using the oven for a month and find it easy to use and bakes well. Love the easy gliding shelves and the french doors
Extremely pleased with how doors open, easy glide racks, the MANY options. Wished I bought it years ago, worth every penny
Purchased the French door model. Easy to use. Consistent temperature control and easy access with the doors.
I love this new oven. Putting things in and taking them out is super easy with the French doors.
Just put this oven in. It was perfect since we had a small kitchen. French doors are great.
I bought this oven 3 months ago and I love it ... the design and quality is amazing
design and efficiency are the main reasons for my purchase and also GEs reputation
I got it when my house flooded. its great for a 2-3 people in a household.
Preheats super fast and easy loading and unloading.
Have had this for a few months now, love how it cooks evenly( no more burnt cookies.lol) Easy and simple to use.
In the process of a major kitchen renovation I found that this was the only built-in oven to offer a side-open double door feature, which sets it in a class by itself for convenience, particularly from the standpoint of an eye level oven. Overall, the operation and workmanship is flawless.
When we remodeled our kitchen we went from a standard range to a wall in oven. Because of the oven's new location, we really didn't want a door that either hung down or swung to the side. The GE with the french door option was the winner. This oven has a very high quality look and feel. At first I was a little concerned due to it's low amp rating that it wouldn't be able to handle the job but it actually cooks faster than our old convection range. Plenty of features make the oven quite capable of cooking everything from roasting a turkey to baking a cake. The wifi option is kind of nice to allow you to start preheating before getting home. You just have to plan ahead to activate this feature since it is a special selection on the dial. The whole family is quite happy with this addition to the home.
nice oven good features, but no owners manual and temperature probe
everything cooks great food comes out juicy tender and Delicious. looks great.. at first you need to keep an eye on the cooking time, think in this over cook fast!
This is the first year I did a turkey... cooked in my parents newly renovated kitchen. This oven is beautiful, and cooked the bird exceptionally evenly.
Installed this oven after much research, for newly remodeled kitchen, and couldn't be happier.
I bought it three months ago and have baked tons of cookies and cakes. All came out perfectly delicious. One issue we had was we had to override the temperature settings and found the instructions difficult to follow. Also, we can't figure out how to set the timer.
I saw this oven on Pinterest and was immediately intrigued. My oven was at least 25 years old and needed replacing badly. I love that I can use convection or regular baking and broiling. I love that it has a cleaning feature. I am in love with the doors. So easy to open with one hand and close with one hand. If I ever move I'm taking this oven with me.
We bought this when remodeling our kitchen. I absolutely love the fact that the doors open out rather than down. No more bending over a hot oven! Pulling one handle opens both doors simultaneously. Another really cool feature is I can operate it from my iPhone. If I decide I want to stop and get a pizza on the way home to cook when I get there, I can preheat the oven and it's ready when I get home. There is nothing I don't like about this oven. It is even a beautiful piece to complement our new kitchen!
We bought this oven a few months ago and are so pleased with it! It cooks and bakes food great, and the self-cleaning feature is fantastic. We highly recommend this oven!
This oven bakes food evenly. I love the sturdy rolling racks. It looks beautiful and updated in my kitchen. The French doors make getting food into the oven easy and close without having to reach out your arms too far. I love all of the cooking settings and feel each setting is very effective to enhance my final outcome.
did a complete kitchen renovation and wanted appearance quality & function--good reviews and although pricey it seemed worth it and so far---6 mos am quite pleased.
Love the double doors! Easy to open and sliding racks are great! My Guests love the look, adds interest and a unique feature to my kitchen.
This is a great oven! I love the double doors and how the oven racks slide out so easy. It cooks very evenly
I love the looks and the way the doors open. Easy to use.
Bought this a month ago and have used it quite often
Just finished our kitchen remodel and this was the crown jewel. The French doors are not only beautiful, they do away with leaning over a hot oven door. You can open one handed as the opposite door opens at the same rate. I'm in love with the beauty, elegance, convenience and ease of use!!!
Love it! It is not only functional, but is the focal points of the kitchen
I love the look of this oven. And the French doors are very functional. My only complaint is that it doesn't stay online through our wifi. If you plan to start your oven by phone away from the house then you need to think ahead and make sure the oven is online before you leave. Kinda takes the conveinence out of the feature.
besides the style and great look this oven cooks great both as an traditional oven and convection. The french door style gives sense of the kitchen of a fine restaurants, but what i love is that it is mounted high so no bending, the doors open to allow you to get in close not like an oven where the door open out at you. Truly easy to view what you are cooking with the built in light and built in temp probe is great help. All this and I did not mention wireless control (cell phone none the less) easy to use and truly useful. I had mine and not a problem yet just great cooking
I'm one week in with the new french door wall oven and here some overall general comments. 1. It arrived with a non-functioning display panel; the oven actually operates fine, but not able to see the display and know what the oven is doing, or time, etc...; GE and Home Depot have been helpful in arranging a technician to come check it out, but have to wait for more than a week for someone to get here - which was a little disappointing. I actually got much better results communicating with Home Depot for service - contacting GE directly yielded a service appointment 2 and a half weeks out! Lisa at Home Depot was awesome in getting someone out here faster! Now in the mean time, the display panel magically started working, but I'm still going to have the technician come to check it out. Hopefully a minor glitch and not a general sign of quality issues. 2. Its a great looking appliance, and the overall feel of material quality is good. It has a very "professional kitchen" appearance, without being insanely over-designed with enormous buttons and handles. Installation was a breeze. 3. The gliding racks (comes with 2) are a huge treat after having normal metal-on-metal racks in my old oven; with the racks out, it is a huge cavity, so you can cook just about anything in this thing! And all 3 racks are coated with the self-cleaning surface, and therefore don't need to be removed during a cleaning cycle. 4. As my kitchen is basically in a huge open loft living space, operating noise was a concern for me, and since I was not able to see one in operation at any local store, I was taking my chances - happy to report the convection fan is relatively quiet - you only here a mild hum, I would say much, much quieter than a microwave. 5. Web connectivity - GE only went half way with this so far (maybe it will improve over time with software updates); you need to leave the dial on the oven set at "Remote Enabled" if you want the app to function; whats odd was GE's choice to have mechanical knobs on this model, as they cannot be manipulated and thus consistent with what you've selected in the app - an all-digital panel might have been a better choice. And not all oven functions are available to you from the app - only bake and convection roast functions; I assume the broil and crisping settings are left out for safety reasons. That aside, it is very easy to program the oven from the app, and I even get alerts on my Apple Watch for things such as "Preheating Complete - Oven has reached its set temp", or that your timer is done. Overall very happy with my purchase; just hoping the display panel issue was a very minor glitch.
The oven overall is fine. One thing we did not know prior to our purchase is that a fan continues to run after the oven is shut off, we assume to cool the oven down quickly yet seems sorta strange to us.
I think this is a wonderful oven. I have only had it a few months and I am not use to the convection portion of the oven, but he standard way of using the oven is fine. It is too new for me to say yea or nay, but so far I love it.
We have had and used another brand Swing Door Oven Product for 20 years that failed and there were no longer any replacement parts obtainable to repair it. The fact that the GE CAFE style oven doors "swing open" and not drop down in front of you was the deciding facture for us to purchase one. Safety and access are necessary considerations when you are looking for a residential oven product to be used by a full time WHEELCHAIR person who both loves to cook and is good at doing so. It becomes a No Brainer decision. Drop Down oven doors are a distinct Safety Hazard in our household. Additive to that is the fact that the oven racks roll out, are very stable, and have Stop Locks to prevent the possibility of pulling hot foods out of the oven and have them fall in the lap of a Wheelchair restricted cook.
We bought all of the GE Café appliances when we remodeled our kitchen. I love the French doors and all of the features. The only thing I would change is the dials, they are so easy to move, that all you have to do is bump them and they turn.
Easy to operate dials make use easy, and looks great in my small kitchen!
