The range is solidly built and looks fantastic, however care must be taken with the knobs. They are easily turned on, not so far as to ignite but far enough to release gas, when reaching for something on a back burner, operating the oven controls or merely rubbing against them when walking by. My previous range was 30 years old so I am still adjusting to electronic ignition vs. standing pilot lights and the various burners sizes and the need to match pot/pan size to burner size. Most modern ranges have this sort of configuration, however I am not yet convinced it is better. The burners tend to heat from the outside, as opposed to my old range which heated from the middle. It took me 40 minutes to cook 1 lb of pasta in a pot I normally used on the power burner, but then realized I needed a bigger pot for that burner. I used a huge stock pot instead and it was on a par with my old range - 20 minutes from turning the water on to draining the pasta. This is a clear indication that the heat is concentrated on the edges of the cookware instead of the center. The oven has worked extremely well, seems to be temperature-accurate and bakes evenly. A 9-inch double layer cake baked in exactly 35 minutes to perfection. I have not yet evaluated the convection option. Broiling must be done on the upper most rack position. Some broiling instructions in the guide indicate using the top or second from the top, however a steak cooked on the second from the top merely baked and did not broil until I moved it to the top position. The grates are extremely heavy and have a fantastic commercial look and is one of the primary reasons I chose this range over a similar competitor's model. I particularly like that the included griddle/grill (of extremely high quality seasoned cast iron) interchanges with the center grate to create a seamless look. Again, the setting recommendations in the guide had to be altered. At high, 1-1/2 lbs of boneless chicken breasts, pounded to an even 1" thickness, cooked perfectly in 16 minutes. The stove remains cool during cooking, so much so that I had to question whether or not the oven was actually hot enough when baking and broiling. The range does emit a lot of fumes during self-cleaning mode and requires significant ventialltion beyond the range hood. All in all, this appears to be a very solid and well-built range.

The range is beautiful, easy to clean, and is just what I wanted, however, I never realized the difficulty in even cooking on the stovetop with all of these smooth top models. This problem in not a G.E. problem, but a major flaw with the design of all smooth top stoves. The element heats up to a red glow and then once the desired temp. is achieved, the red glow wanes. The problem is, in order to maintain the heat, the element has to heat to red over and over, causing anything on the burner to burn! With the old coil elements, the temp was maintained without having the red glow which burns the food! This design is very disappointing, especially since it is industry wide. The way these stoves work is wrong and never should have been ok'd to manufacture. The design engineers really should have been sent back to the drawing board. It infuriates me that this design was allowed to be mass-produced with this major, obvious flaw!

Love, Love it
Comments about GE Profile 30" Built-In White Electric Cooktop:
Love all except the bottom drawer. It does not slide out easily if pulled out any more than half way. Dumb design for this model.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love this range!
from West Point, IA, United States
Our gas stove blew up and we went back to electric. This is the best stove/oven we have ever had! So many features and it works better and faster than the gas stove did at boiling water even! The warming burner is awesome and helps save time with cooking multiple food items!

All Star oven!
from Jackson, WY, United States
I am pleased that the oven heats up in less than 10 minutes. I haven't timed it but it is fast. I love the continuous top. The deep set burners are great and, if there is a spill, the food doesn't burn as fast. Clean up is great. I love the middle burner. The large burner is powerful but it is too large, even for my largest pots. It ove-rburns the pots so I turn it down to a 7 at the most. I like the smaller simmer burner. Love it!
great value for the money....easy to clean....
