GE dual fuel cafe help needed, please

Posted by beachlover2 (My Page) on

Does anyone have the GE dual fuel model C25985SETSS range? I am looking at this and am concerned about the stainless stove top?
Anyone have experience with this? I love that it is free standing but yet looks like a slide in. I like that the large oven is on top and the smaller one on the bottom because I don't think I could lift the turkey from the bottom!!! All the reviews seem to be good with the exception of the stainless top is easy to scratch. Can anyone advise me on this? Thanks so much for taking the time to help!

I have a GE Cafe double oven range--it's all gas, but it has the same stainless steel top. We've had it installed for a little over a month and haven't had issues with scratching, but we have been careful not to scrub it with anything abrasive. One thing I wanted to mention, we had an issue with the install because the back of the range will not get totally flush with the back wall. The way it's designed, there is a small gap at the back, so it doesn't slide all the way in. We were able to minimize the gap by running the backsplash a few inches below the top of the range, but it's still apparent if you look closely.

No issues with scratching here after 9 months. I'm getting a lot of discolored spots under and around the edges of the burners though so I need to figure out how to remove those.

I also went with the all gas version because I wanted the performance of a gas broiler, but the cooktop is the same.
