As I have stated in a previous post, GE has launched their new Cafe line. Its actually some pretty decent equipment, especially the stove.

Lets look:

The slide has an enhanced burner of 17,000(the average burner on a 10 year old stove is 10,000BTU) as well as a griddle burner in the middle, electric convection and an oven below. The knobs and most of the finishing touches are stainless, so the stove looks upscale as well

On the surface, the refrigerator looks good as well. As Michael points out, it is a side by side competely finished in stainless including the sides. Unfortunately, GE dropped the ball a bit. Although the product looks good, most upscale consumers buy bottom freezers and products that are shallow depth. GE effectively is marketing a product, which would be successful 10 years ago.
