GE C2S985SETSS

Pros
  • Baking drawer
  • Large capacity
  • Loaded with convenient features
Cons
  • Noisy convection fan
  • Mediocre self-cleaning

Bottom line

The dual-fuel GE C2S985SETSS is loaded with high-end features like an integrated baking drawer, fifth oval-shaped burner and nonstick griddle. It has a number of versatile rack adjustments and performs well in expert tests for boiling and simmering. It fares less well in baking and broiling tests, but it gets very good feedback from owners.

Performance

Excellent stovetop performance, questionable baking performance. In a recent professional test of more than 50 gas and dual-fuel ranges, the GE C2S985SETSS ranked about average compared to other models. It performed well in both boiling and simmering tests but didn't fare well in baking tests. Broiling was just average. Users at HomeDepot.com, however, are very satisfied with the range. Most say all of the functions work very well. One owner says, "All the food comes out perfect from the oven." The C2S985SETSS offers several cooking modes, including convection, dehydrating, proofing, keep-warm, delay-start and Sabbath modes.

Capacity/size

A mixture of size and versatility. The GE C2S985SETSS dual-fuel range provides plenty of space in its 5.4-cubic-foot oven and integrated 1.0-cubic-foot warming drawer. Both spaces can be used at the same time, similar to a double oven. One owner at HomeDepot.com says, "What clinches it for me was the capability to use both ovens at the same time. No need to have the double oven setup, this works just fine." The oven has six rack positions and comes with three heavy-duty self-clean racks.

Features

Lots of variety on the stovetop. Owners love the convenient and user-friendly features offered with the GE C2S985SETSS. The stovetop has five sealed burners, one of which is oval-shaped to fit the included nonstick griddle. One burner is also adjustable to go from medium to high power. It also comes with continuous grates and a deep recessed surface to prevent spills. The oven has a hidden bake element, temperature probe, built-in timer and an audible preheat signal. Other features include automatic oven shut-off and control lock. It has a self-cleaning cycle, but that only gets a "fair" rating from professional testers.
