Café Appliances


Well, this is it guys.  I don’t even know where to begin.  I am honored to be writing you this post about GE’s new high end appliance line called Café Appliances that we installed in our home.

A few weeks ago our jaws dropped as we watched two delivery men unload our very own set of Café Appliances made by GE and fully customizable.

Lets start with the cosmetics.  If you have been following for some time, you know our previous appliances were stainless.  We had owned and used them for several years, and you know after spending all that money on something you’d think we would have loved them.  But, we didn’t.  I swear I could just look at them and they would scratch, dent, and of course leave every finger print known to man.  Another thing, I don’t love to clean 🤫. So having to wipe them down after every last meal was the lastttttt thing I everrrrrr wanted to do.  So, I didn’t. And the neglect showed.

One of the many things I loved about Café Appliance is their choices matte finishes with their variety of handle options.  You heard me, you get to choose BOTH.

For the dishwasher and fridge we chose matte white.  I told myself years ago I would never again go with stainless. I felt like our hard water ran down the front of our previous stainless dishwasher to leave permanent waterfalls, and the fridge as I mentioned before was covered in scratches and dents that when the sun shown each and every one would gleam 😩.

The matte white finish appliances from Café Appliances do not leave water marks, finger prints, nor scratch easily.  The white brightens up the room, and well, I just plain love them.

Now for the stove. Why in the world would I ever replace our previous working white stove?  I can’t really explain why I did such a thing, other than the stove by Café Appliances triumphs it.  I mean seriously, it is just plain amazing.  I wish I could attach a video this blog to show you all the reasons I love it, but that is so far beyond my technological abilities it just isn’t going to happen anytime soon 🤦🏼‍♀️.

But believe me when I tell you, the stove by Cafe Appliances are what dreams are made out of. At least my dreams anyway 🤣.

We chose stainless in this option- and that too I can’t really explain why we (I) did. I just did! I guess I wanted to be different.  And I wanted something to give a timeless feel I will love for decades to come.  Our stove is the 36 in dual fuel with gas cooktop.  The hubby ran gas pipe and added a propane tank just for this cooktop. Cooking on a gas cooktop daily is worth all that extra work times a thousand.  Believe me.  Oh, and one more thing about this gas cooktop from Cafe Appliances– they really did a fantastic job with the design.  And I don’t just mean with there asethetics.  I mean with its cooking and cleaning ability.  I have heard by many that they choose an electric stove top strictly because they did not like hassle of cleaning a gas range.  Well, let me tell you, Cafe Appliances thought of that.  The grates come out in easy three sections that leave one nice flat surface to clean.  BOOM.

Oh, and the way the flames adjust to the size of the pan you’re cooking with is another plus plus plus.  My last stove had different size burners for the various pans that can be used, but really I love cooking on the front burners no matter what pan I had.  That mistake of mine often left hot pan handle as my silly self used a large front burner instead of cooking on the proper size burner in the back with smaller pans. Café Appliances you outdid yourself with having the adjustments you created with your burners! No matter what burner you choose on the Café stove you can adjust it for the size pan you have :).

Thank you all for taking the time to read my thoughts, and let me know if you have any questions as always 🥳.

  1. Hi! I’ve been driving myself crazy trying to figure out which appliances to buy because my family is so hard on everything. For the first time in my life I get to choose appliances and I want them to be and stay perfect. I love the new cafe line but I called GE and they said it is simply a coating over stainless steel. I’m worried about scratches, we do have a cat who likes to put paws on anything smooth. Let me know what you think and how thick is the coating on your white matte pieces?


    1. I am SO sorry, this response is SO late! I am not sure how i missed your comment! My boys are SOOOO hard on everythinggggg. I get your worry! I love the finish because I have had stainless that not only leaves numerous finger prints, but I also used magnets that scratched the surface! ugh! soooo disappointing! Anywho, these may be a simple coating over stainless, but they are perfect! I have had them for months now and have not seen one scratch, dent, or finger print. I LOVE THE FINISH! Did you buy appliance already? What did you choose????


      1. Thanks for the quick answer. Yay, cool to see! That’s what I ordered, but sight unseen, so, nice to see the same configuration (except I did the stove in white). Looks neato! I look forward to having mine.


  2. BTW, your kitchen is gorj! Love the brick chimney, your schoolhouse light, beams, etc.. Just redid my kitchen and I too have white shaker cabs and white subway backsplash. Job done soon, then appliances installed. You’ve made me excited. Thanks for the blog!


  3. I’m considering buying the white fridge but haven’t been able to see it in person. How would you describe the white? And perhaps as a reference you could mention what paint color your cabinets are? I’m worried the white will look off compared to my cabinets.


      1. Lovely kitchen! Thanks for posting. We, too, are re-doing our kitchen. So, the appliances are white white. Could you share the color of your cabinetry and the finish you used? Thanks a bunch! Elizabeth


    1. I recently got my GE Cafe white range, fridge, and dishwasher. I like them, but do hate how the dishwasher doesn’t look the same as the range or fridge. The range and fridge match each other, but the dishwasher looks grayish. GE even sent me a replacement door panel, but it’s the same as the other new one. Unfortunately, I think it’s all nothing-can-be-done-about-it lighting. The range and fridge stick out a bit, into the room, but the dw is recessed a little bit, under the countertop, so it looks different. I’d attach a picture to this comment, but cannot.


      1. Oh, and also, Carrie, my white appliances look fine (pretty close to the color of) with my white, shaker cabinets. All except the counter shadowed dishwasher, like I said above. Enjoy your appliances.


  4. Hi, just curious what the finish is on the stainless steel stove…is it fingerprint resistant, and how has it held up with your family. Thanks very much!


      1. If you’d be so kind as to entertain another question… I haven’t yet used my GE Cafe griddle that came with my range. I’d to use it for grilled veggies and lentil flatbreads (where the only ingredients are ground lentils and water, that make into a pancake-like batter). Here’s my question though… have you used your griddle and does it require spray or oil. I canNOT use ANY spray or oil and am wondering if that rules out me using the griddle. I assume it’s made of cast iron and would stick? Please let me know, if you can. THANKS!
