LOUISVILLE, Ky.—January 5, 2018On party day or any given Monday, your range should look great and smell great, but still allow you to take the spotlight. That’s why GE Appliances has taken standard 30-inch GE Profile™ and GE Café™ slide-in ranges and made them anything but standard with front controls, more cooking surfaces and connectivity features that make your wish your range’s command.

“With GE Appliances, you never have to make a choice between good looks or a good personality,” said Tim Calvert, marketing director for GE Appliances ranges. “GE Profile and GE Café slide-in ranges are the whole package, making cooking more of a pleasure than a chore.”

The gas and dual fuel GE Café slide-in model comes with six burners on a 30-inch range and a double oven, offering 50 percent more burners to efficiently multitask at mealtime. Electric versions include an induction cooktop and single-oven or double-oven options. It is also the first and only range to come standard with a Precision Cooking Probe that monitors liquid temperature, and then communicates adjustments to the connected range and a smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth® to get perfect results every time.

GE Profile induction slide-ins come with some hot features of their own, including edge-to-edge cooking and Glide-Touch technology for ease of use and cleanup. On the gas version, GE Profile cooktops come standard with five burners in 30-inch models, as well as the largest available reversible grill or griddle for the ultimate in culinary flexibility.

“When it comes to appearances, GE Profile and GE Café slide-in ranges come in the largest selection of premium finishes available, including the new Black Stainless, Stainless, Black Slate and Slate on most models,” Calvert said. “But it’s the connectivity that makes you the master of your own kitchen. You can enjoy hands-free preheating, timer setting and temperature changing with voice commands using Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.”

All new GE Profile and GE Café slide-in ranges are WiFi and Bluetooth-enabled, and feature true double-oven configurations that fit into the same cutout as conventional freestanding ranges. Self-clean and steam-clean ranges, modern backlighting and Precision Cooking Probe are available on some induction models.
