GE's Cafe appliances line made a splash in 2018 with the introduction of the Matte Collection with customizable handles and knobs. The Modern Glass Collection, AKA the platinum finish, targets an entirely different style. These sleek appliances were designed with the modern kitchen in mind, focusing on clean lines and minimal hardware.
First announced in February 2019, the Modern Glass Collection is now available in a full suite of kitchen appliances. Glass panels are layered over stainless steel for a glossy, smooth finish, and handles are low-profile or integrated where possible, such as on refrigerators and dishwashers.

This collection is designed to look amazing when paired with slab countertops and minimalist styles. It matches with almost any color palette - warm or cool, bold or pastel. That versatility could be a factor to consider if you like to redesign your kitchen without changing out the appliances.
When it comes to cooking, the wall ovens and ranges in this line feature GE smart appliance technology, using easy touch controls with intuitive step-by-step processes to help you choose recipes right from your range or wall oven, and walk through them as you go. Other features include precision cooking modes that eliminate the need to preheat, and fun new options like air frying. If you want to get better cooking and baking results effortlessly, you should definitely take a look at the smart cooking tech in these wall ovens and ranges!
GE is starting to roll out this option across more appliances after bringing it to select wall ovens in April. As of this writing, you can find the following appliances in Modern Glass:
Single and double smart wall ovens (in 27" and 30" widths)
Advantium 5-in-1 smart ovens
Slide-in gas and electric smart ranges (single and double oven models)
Dishwashers with pocket handles and hidden top controls
