GE Café™ Appliances

Café is a luxury brand launched by GE in 2018 and that’s quickly becoming extremely popular in kitchens across the world. Café™ has been dubbed as an affordable luxury line with high-end customizable designer looks, at a fraction of the cost of other luxury brands like Viking, Thermador, or Miele. Café™ focuses on the critical areas of your kitchen, checking boxes in appliances like commercial-style ranges, refrigerators, dishwashers, countertop ovens, wall ovens, cooktops, microwaves, and even small countertop appliances like coffee makers, toasters, and espresso machines. For this guide, we’ll be reviewing amazing aspects of Café refrigerators, what they offer, and how much you might be looking to spend when investing in this affordable, luxury brand. 

GE Café™ vs. GE Monogram or Profile

 A woman using a GE Café refrigerator  

When looking at Café™ Appliances compared to its sister brands GE, Monogram, and GE Profile, it's clear that Café™ has many more options as far as customization than the other two brands, although the GE mainline and GE Profile series tend to be less expensive.

GE Monogram is the most expensive line of the three, but with amazing features that many homeowners are willing to splurge for. Cafe Appliances meet somewhere in the middle, with incredible features, and a more affordable price tag, making it one of the more invested in brands by GE. 

Looking more specifically at refrigerators, GE Café vs Monogram refrigerators have very similar features, but the Monogram refrigerators are more expensive and deemed as true luxury with panel ready options, while Café does not offer the option. In contrast, GE Profile vs GE Café refrigerators have major differences in features and price, with Profile refrigerators being more budget-friendly but less customizable or technology-driven.
