Pros:Two high output burners True Convection Second oven
Cons:Make sure that you have the metal knobs not the plastic ones
The Bottom Line: I would highly recommend this for any serious cook. After using it for a year, I have no regrets at all.
In my past review of the GE Profile convection range I said that if my house burnt to the ground that would be the first thing I bought for the new house. After moving and having to get another range I ended up getting the Cafe Dual Fuel and haven't regretted it a bit.
First off, a word about converting the natural gas settings if you are going to use LP... This will drop the BTU output of all of the burners. Some companies (Wolf) make ranges that are specifically designed for LP. But the burners on the Wolf are 15,000 btu/hr. The high output burner on the Cafe is 15,000 even after converting. So, I just couldn't justify the price of the wolf. And, if you have an LP wolf and move it to a house with natural gas you are out of luck...
True Convection - some convection ranges only have a fan in the back of the range to circulate air. This is convection cooking. But, you get much better performance if there is an additional heating element around the fan. This is called "true convection". Look for it, it makes a big difference.
The Griddle - I've heard a lot of complaints about the griddle. No, that is not a high output burner under there. But, if you turn it on high and let it set while you prep your food, you will easily be able to make burgers, steaks, pancakes... You need to give it plenty of time to heat up.
High output burners - These work great. But, high output burners are intended to put out a lot of heat. Don't expect to simmer a cheese sauce over your power boil burners. It's not going to work. That's why there is a simmer (low output) burner. One design flaw is the air vents at the back of the oven. These vent the air from the oven. When using convection, it will blow out the front right burner if the flame is too low.
Over the oven microwaves - I don't know why this is such a popular idea. When you have a high output range generating quite a bit of heat, what do you think is going to happen to a big metal box 18 inches above it? Of course it is going to get hot, very hot. I would not recommend this layout. With any high performance range you need to have a powerful vent hood piped to the outside.
Update 8/10/09 - let me explain my metal knob comment for the "cons". The old model of this range came with plastic knobs with some kind of a foil decal for the lettering. The problem is that when you heat the oven hot enough (I get mine up to 550 F for making pizza) the decals and the knobs deform. The new design is for metal knobs. I got mine replace through warranty and haven't had any problems since.
All in all, this is an excellent range. I would recommend this to anyone that is a serious cook.
