The Café Appliances CGS750P4MW2 is a unique range with plenty of exclusive features.

It's Café Appliances' best range.

In this article, you will learn about their best specs from the cooktop, oven, overall aesthetic, and reliability based on real service data.

We will also compare the Café against Samsung's double oven gas range featuring Flex Duo and other ranges from Jenn-Air and Thermador.

By the end of this article, you will know whether the Café Appliances CGS750P4MW2 is a good range for you and your family.

Let's begin.

Is The Café Appliances CGS750P4MW2 Gas Range Any Good?

Burners

I remember when four burners seemed like it was enough. Then 15 years ago, five burners became popular on the high-end ranges with a griddle in the middle.

Café is the first with six burners, and although more is usually good, you will likely not fit bigger pots on all 6.

Still, you probably have more burners than necessary.

The burners vary from an extremely hot 21,000 to a simmer burner of 5,000. You have another power burner at 15,000 and then some in the middle at 12 and 2 at 9500.

This is a good arrangement, but you don't have all high output like a Thermador or Jenn-Air pro range.

Ovens

The Maytag "Gemini" oven first popularized double ovens. The Gemini failed because it had the burner controls on the cooktop for a smaller cooking area.

It was also freestanding with the oven controls on the back. Typically, people want slide-ins, or front control ranges for better cooking products.

Pro ranges are all front controls, for example.

The Café range has a double oven with a larger lower oven. You have the most cubic footage this way. Both ovens are self-cleaning.

However, the larger oven at the bottom means you will be bending for larger items like your meats and Christmas turkey.

The regular Jenn-Air and KitchenAid offer the smaller oven at the bottom. The Café's smaller oven is larger, more versatile, and self-cleaning, but the others are worth considering.

The Samsung Flex Duo is interesting because its rack slides out between the ovens to have two ovens or one larger oven with storage below.

Both ovens are convection as well versus just the bottom of the Café.

However, the Flex Duo is limited in temperature control when cooking with both ovens according to their owners manual.

Cafes' ovens are exclusive and do not have Samsung' limitations.

Grand Total 304 2549 11.92%

The Café Appliances reliability has been decent at 11.11%.

It's pretty good to consider its a double oven with six burners versus one oven and four burners of the other brands on this list.

Although we service what we sell in Boston, GE has a service department covering the US, which could be advantageous over the others.

Style

Buying an appliance is almost like buying a car in the 1920s. Your choices then were black and black. You walk into an appliance store, and your choice is stainless and more stainless.

Café has a huge advantage for style because you have real alternatives.

There is their mirrored Modernist look. You have their popular white collection as well, and there is Matte black for another distinctive look.

You also have three different handle options with stainless, brass, and bronze. So even if you opt for stainless, you can add different hardware like copper or brass.

Wi-Fi

The whole Café line is Wi-Fi enabled so you can connect to your range remotely through an app. You can turn the oven on and off and adjust the temperature from your phone. It can also answer to Alexa, Google Assistant, and other apps.

It can even answer Digiorno. So for you frozen pizza lovers, this range has you covered.

Price

At $3,239 to $3,600, Café is an expensive gas range, albeit with features. Your shopping list should include:

Other double ovens like Samsung and Jenn-Air are $1,000 less with similar output but lack the size, functionality of the Café.

Professional Ranges

You can buy a professional(pro) range from Thermador and Jenn-Air for a little more when you factor in their free dishwasher promotion.

Pro ranges offer more power per burner. Thermador has lower simmer burners, while JennAir offers the most robust Wi-Fi experience.

The Café offers six burners, two ovens, and self-cleaning in both ranges.

None of the other ranges mentioned in this article offer style customization.

Should You Buy The Café Appliances CGS750P4MW2?

First, the Café is different both in style and feature set. Its ability to customize is unlike any appliance in this price range.

However, it is more expensive than other double ovens and less powerful than similarly priced pro ranges.

So although it is worthwhile, you have to assess what you want your new range to do.

Do you need double ovens and six-burner functionality?

Either way, the Café is worth your consideration as it is unique in appearance and function.

WHY SHOULD YOU TRUST US?

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.

My goal has always been simple: I want Yale to be the best retail experience anywhere. I have tried to create a compelling environment for customers and employees alike.
