This range has many of the features of the "pro" style or commercial ranges, but I think it looks better than many or them, and it's really is a pleasure to use. From reviews I've read on other brands of commercial ranges the GE Cafe is probably more reliable, too.
We made the purchase because we liked the features & the look, and also because GE cooking appliances have a great reputation; and it hasn't disappointed. The 4 different size burners all work well and offer plenty of versatility for different size pots/pans, and work well at high heats (i.e., for boiling, wok cooking, etc.) and simmering/warming at low heats.
The gas oven works great, and the electric baking and warming drawer works great as well. One point on that is, while baking with the lower oven, you have to be careful both when you pull out the drawer and when putting something in or taking it out. It takes just a bit of getting used to the relatively unusual position and the drawer itself to avoid burns or running into a foot with the drawer.
We haven't had occasion to use the central burner or griddle yet so I can't speak to that.
We do a lot of cooking in our house, and overall the appliance has met or exceeded our expectations, and I would certainly recommend this product.
