GE appliances are known for their high-quality, innovative designs. Regardless of where you live, if someone mentions the GE brand, you instantly know what they’re talking about. This is because people really enjoy using these products in their daily lives.
One of GE’s most popular products is their Cafe Range. This range makes you feel as if you’re a professional cook because it’s a convectional cooking system. Three types of ranges exist in this line. They’re the electric range, gas range, and dual fuel range.
The GE Dual Fuel Range
This range is specially designed to use both electricity and gas. The way that this works is the oven is electric while the cook top range is gas. Many people prefer using this type of range instead of an all-electric or all gas system because electric ovens are better for browning and broiling while gas stoves tend to heat up faster. As such, when you’re making a big dinner or a holiday meal you can easily have everything cooked just perfectly and at the right time too.
The GE Dual Fuel Range is a “slide in” range, which means you can place it between two different, freestanding sections of counter tops or cabinets. This is completely different from a “drop in” range, which requires you to install a special cabinet that holds the appliance since it can’t stand on its own. However, the GE Dual Fuel Range still has the “built-in” appearance that’s popular in most of today’s kitchens.
One of the really nice things about the GE Dual Fuel Range is it has two ovens, both of which can go from a cold stone temperature to an internal temperature of 350 degrees in approximately 5 minutes. The temperature controls on both ovens are also very accurate, making them very enjoyable to use, even though there’s a definite size difference. The main oven is a 5 cubic feet convection oven, while the smaller, 1 cubic foot oven is a non-convection oven.
Using Your GE Dual Fuel Range
When cooking with appliances like this one, you can easily have all your food ready to serve at the right time. The key here is to start by placing the item that takes the longest to bake in your oven first. Once that’s finished, you can simply place it in the warming door and place your other item in to bake. For instance, if you want to make these delicious BBQ ribs and serve them with a side of corn bread, I’d bake the ribs first.
