At a Glance:
If you are in the market for new kitchen appliances, a new brand might catch your eye. Café is an increasingly popular company that has wowed customers with its sleek designs and feature-packed models. Not only are these appliances desirable because they are beautiful, but they are also durable. Café appliances are an investment in the longevity of your kitchen.
Modern and Stylish Appliances
If you aren’t familiar with Café, get to know this brand. Learn why this subsidiary of GE has impressed the American consumer market with its line of appliances.
In terms of the GE appliance family, Café is the newcomer, first hitting the market in 2018. Despite its short time on the market, Café products have earned a spot in the high-end appliance sector, serving as an alternative to luxury appliance brands modeled after commercial kitchens.
That’s not to say Café appliances aren’t equal in performance — Café appliances are considered luxury themselves, after all. Instead, the line offers a new approach to designs and user experiences that are on par with smart homes, fashion-forward interior design, and the culinary enthusiasts who enjoy cooking in spaces that are trendy and often bold.
However, there’s a difference between Monogram vs. Café appliances. We look at it this way:
- Monogram appliances cost more are better suited for large kitchens, entertainers, and serious cooks.
- Café appliances cater more to the typical homeowners looking to elevate their cooking setup without straying too far from the ordinary kitchen experience and price points (though, Café appliances are more expensive than brands such as LG, Samsung, Maytag, and KitchenAid).
All these factors make Café appliances hot-ticket items for shoppers who like trendy designs (Café showcases this beautifully), appliances that are built better, and exclusive accents across a lineup of appliances in sizes and appliance designs familiar to the everyday user.
Ready to take a deeper look into Café appliances? We’ve put together some of our favorite Café kitchen appliances to give you a preview of the exciting designs and features you can expect from the lineup.
✔ Recommended Café Dishwasher: Café™ 24" Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher
This dishwasher is the perfect example of combining style with function. The sleek stainless steel and built-in design blend into kitchen surroundings for a clean, modern look. We agree with over 370 buyers who rate the powerful cleaning experience this top-rated dishwasher delivers a 5/5. There are adjustable upper racks so you will always have room for various cookware and pans. This dishwasher also comes with space specifically for bottles, which are often hard to clean.
There are five total cycles to choose from when you want to run this dishwasher, including an automatic cycle for general cleaning, along with more niche options like china, Express, and a Pots mode. Opt for a delicate cycle for fragile plates and glassware, or ramp up the power to scrub grease off of your pots and pans.
As mentioned, this is one of Monogram’s best dishwashers, according to dishwasher reviews from users. One buyer writes, “Cleans very well, love the bottle rack! And although there is a quieter model, this one is so much quieter than our old one.”
✔ Recommended Café Refrigerator: Café™ 27.6 Cu. Ft. Stainless Steel 4-Door French Door Refrigerator
French-door refrigerators already add elements of luxury to modern kitchen. Along with two French doors providing access to the refrigeration section, there is a bonus flex drawer that allows you to set a specific temperature based on what you eat or drink. This upgrades gives users the ability to switch from cool and frozen settings to chill wine or keep produce fresh depending on what’s in stock.
This Café French door refrigerator is also Wi-Fi compatible and Energy Star® qualified. This means you can adjust the appliance’s settings from your phone and maximize energy conservation without sacrificing performance.
This is one of the most highly rated refrigerators from the Café lineup. Out of nearly 3,000 reviews, 92% of customers say they would recommend this appliance to others. One person writes, “My favorite feature is the flex drawer. We are big yogurt and cheese people and the drawer holds it all and allows for easy access. The temperature of the flex drawer can be changed so that the drawer could hold beverages or meat.”
✔ Recommended Café Cooktop: Café™ 36" Black Induction Cooktop
If you are looking to elevate your cooking experience, you can’t go wrong with an induction cooktop. Rather than creating a hot surface to cook on, induction systems use electromagnetic currents to heat the pots and pans directly rather than through conductive heat that passes from a burner or element. This creates a faster and more efficient heating experience.
As you browse various Café brand appliances, check out this induction cooktop to see if it’s right for your home. It comes with five heating elements of various sizes, including two that can sync up to create one long burner. This long burner is ideal if you are cooking with a roasting pan or setting a griddle on top of your cooktop. The control knobs are all placed together on the front for easy management of your burners.
Ultimately, we recommend this model due to the amount of positive Cafe cooktop reviews that assure an enjoyable cooking experience. If precision matters to you when it comes cooking, consider what this buyer review has to say: “This cooktop heats pots pans and their contents faster than anything I have ever cooked on in the past. My new cooktop also cooks more evenly and maintains the temperature better than any other cooktop that I have used.”
✔ Recommended Café Range: Café™ 30" Stainless Steel Slide In Dual Fuel Range
This Café range boasts an impressive satisfaction rating with 93% of users who recommend cooking on it. This gas range offers a tremendous amount of flexibility to customers who want to elevate their home cooking.
Start by exploring the double ovens, which take the place of a double wall oven without hogging kitchen space. Not only can you prepare two dishes at the same time, but you can save energy when you only need a small space. Choose the smaller top oven if you are cooking flat dishes, like pizza or cookies. Your oven will heat up faster and use less energy.
The cooking surfaces comes with six gas burners in a variety of power levels at a high of 21K BTUs. This allows you to prepare a delicate sauce on one burner while rapidly boiling water for pasta on the next. The control knobs on the front are easy to access so you can turn up the heat — or shut off a burner entirely — with a flick of your wrist.
Read online reviews to see why this is one of the most popular Café appliances right now. One buyer says, “Was looking for a five burner, the salesman showed this six-burner and love it. Heats up the whole griddle, also the simmer burner works great. Wasn't sure about the double oven, but love warming and cooking with the smaller top one.”
If you are considering upgrading to a suite of Café kitchen appliances, you can pair your ideal range with this microwave oven. Not only does it contain the same stylish elements found in other Café models, but it also offers powerful features that you will love. You can easily adjust the power settings on the microwave to handle everything from melting butter to reheating last night’s pot roast.
When the microwave isn’t in use, it can help you filter smoke and grease created by your range. This model comes with a 400-CFM filter that catches particles and keeps your air clean. There are four total venting options depending on the power you need.
Impressively, 98% of owners suggest buying this over-the-range microwave, according to customer reviews. In the words of one user, “Great microwave, replaced a GE Profile microwave. This microwave had many features that the GE didn't have. Definitely a higher-end product.”
Café is one brand that proves that there is no reason high-end appliances have to look like industrial machines. The brand does an exemplary job at fusing fashion-forward appliance concepts with the quality of luxury appliances, offering a one-of-a-kind cooking experience with a look that can’t be found from any other brand.
