Bosch 700 vs GE Cafe

esteslizJune 23, 2014

So I finally thought I had made a decision on a gas range and I bought a Bosch 700 Series HDI7282U

I ordered the Bosch from Sears outlet online. I called the store and the guy looked it over and said it was in perfect shape. I just went for it, but now am feeling nervous having not seen it.

This afternoon I saw a GE Cafe C2S985S in a kitchen store and kind of wish I would have gotten that one... I really like the look of the griddle and oven drawer.

any thoughts on which one to get?

I debated the same thing 18 months ago. I went with the Bosch and I love it.
For me, and I am on Propane, the Bosch lost fewer BTUs on the conversion from Natural Gas to Propane.
Bosch is slide in versus free standing and I dont like the little space on the side for gunk to slide. It is icky- IMO
I had read very negative things about the usefulness of the lower baking drawer. I dont recall exactly but, I seem to recall it was 110 not 220 and had very little power, it took an extended time to preheat and was often disappointing.
I like the idea of a griddle but realize I would use at most once a week.
My only regret, Bosch doestn have delay start which I would use. Thats the feature that lets you turn on the oven at a set time, like 5:00 so it is preheated when you get home!
