We are seeing Cafe Appliances on every design blog these days and I’m here to tell you – it is for good reason!
You’re probably here hoping that this stunning line of appliances is too good to be true so you can stop thinking about them! Sorry I’m not sorry – these appliances are AMAZING. They as functional and luxurious as they are beautiful and I am so happy to have them in my kitchen!
I have had the entire suite – the fridge, dishwasher, and range – for two years now and I’m so excited to finally share my review!
Why we chose Cafe Appliances
Remember when my kitchen flooded right before Thanksgiving? Yeah, that was fun. It is also the reason we needed all new kitchen appliances. We decided to change the layout of our kitchen and our previous appliances didn’t match or fit the space.
I knew when we were doing our kitchen that I wanted white appliances. I hadn’t done a ton of appliance shopping before this time, so I didn’t really know what was out there. I went shopping at The Home Depot in-store and saw these in person for the first time. I totally freaked out! I had never in my life seen white and gold appliances and it was kind of a done deal in that moment – I just needed to make sure they were quality since we will have them for so long!
I didn’t realize initially that Cafe was a line from GE! I did a ton of research on GE’s line of appliances and felt good about buying them from Home Depot because they have an awesome warranty program.
Tell me about the hardware
One of the best things about these appliances is that you can change out the hardware! They have a few different options, they have brushed bronze, brushed copper, brushed stainless, and brushed black.
Since I was going with the white appliances it already came with the brushed bronze hardware which is what I would have switched out to anyways. I just love that there are different options I think it’s just so smart and creative.
NOTE ABOUT THE GOLD HARDWARE:
One thing that I will mention is that the brushed bronze is NOT gold – it’s a true bronze. When I was in store, I didn’t realize how bronze it was but once it was delivered and I saw it next to my gold hardware on my cabinets, I was a little surprised! It doesn’t bother me that they don’t match exactly because they do compliment each other nicely.
When I was looking for a range there are two things that were a must have, we really wanted a Duel Fuel Range and we wanted a 36 inch range. This GE Cafe 36 inch Duel Fuel Range is perfection. I fell in love with it and I loved the brushed bronzed handles and knob detail. My husband has always wanted a gas range and this range has to be my favorite thing in the kitchen.
It’s completely top of the line – the flame is super steady and never wavers. I love that I can control the heat setting so easily. I was a little nervous about the gas range but it is really easy to use!
The oven is on another level! It preheats so, so fast which has been a game changer for busy weeknights. Also, it’s huge! I know having a double oven would be nice, but you can fit 3 cookie sheets in this thing! More cookies is never a bad thing.
Cafe Smart French Door Refrigerator in Matte White
When I was picking out the refrigerator I wanted a counter depth refrigerator. I went with the french door matte white GE Cafe Refrigerator. I love that there is so much storage and everything has a home in this fridge which makes things inside the fridge so easy to organize.
The water and ice dispensers are stored on the inside which is really nice from a design perspective.
Top Control Dishwasher in Matte White
Dishwashers are a moms best friend and this one does not disappoint! Once I had the fridge and the range, I couldn’t skip the dishwasher and I am SO GLAD I didn’t!
This thing is so, so quiet. Even when you are right next to it, you can hardly hear it running! It and it has so many cool features. Where the silverware goes it has little sprayers that cleans the silverware REALLY WELL! It also has great storage for bigger items like baking sheets!
Two years in – it still works just as well as the day we brought it home.
My review of Cafe Appliances – do I recommend them?!
Absolutely, YES! No matter what you buy, appliances are expensive! You won’t find a high quality line that is as beautiful as these for the price. I honestly don’t have a bad thing to say about them because they have held up so well!
