I purchased this cook top about 4 months ago. From day one I noticed a very heavy film that I could not get off. I used every recommended type of cleaner to no avail. When I finally took a chance and turned it on, the film 'burned on' and totally discolored my cooktop. I called GE and they sent someone who brought a new one but made it clear that this was not a real reason for them to change the top. Well, considering what I paid for it and also that this would not be my first glass cooktop and I know what it acceptable when using one, you can imagine that I was very disappointed. Guess what, the second cooktop had the same problem. My cooktop looks like I have had it for over 10 years. My last one lasted that long and was a breeze to clean. I had to change it because I broke it when I um.....dropped a pot on it. I do not want to purchase another GE profile for fear that the quality of material used is not conducive to 'normal, daily home use'. I also want to mention that I have an excellent set of professional cookware that I was told was not the right type for this cook top. Tell me who is going to change their pots every time you change your cooktop. Seems to me the cook top should be more user- friendly. I did not purchase an induction top so I shouldn't have to be concerned about my pots. And the buttons are too sensitive, they will turn on/off if lightly touched so definitely always use the lock. Bottom line, I usually do well with GE products but this was a total disappointment. I might try their other products but not their cook tops and definitely not this one. GE please go back to using better quality material or I am moving on.

Sleek styling. Good performance
from Hoston, TX
I bought this cooktop when I remodeled my kitchen. It replaces an old style coil-type electric. It performs well but it is a real pain to keep clean. Whenever you fry something the spattering is all over the cooktop. You have to remove all knobs and downdraft grille to clean under and around them every single time you cook. The exhaust fan extends down so much under it that I had to butcher and rig with duct tape the ducting to fit my existing set up (also a downdraft) Your pots and pans need to have a perfectly flat bottom, otherwise they rattle noisily and rock so much when heating up the that the contents spill over.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I love the cooktop and I like how the two burners can heat up simultaneously for griddle cooking. This is my second cooktop and I will have this complaint about any ceramic cooktop I purchase from no on; the issue I have is the appearance after one cooking use. I wish they would come out with cookware that doesn't leave behind scratches or a cleaner that ACTUALLY removes them. There is no cleaner that works to my standards - I've tried them all. But I will always by a ceramic cooktop and it will probably be a GE from now on. Thank you!
down draft cook top
from Baltimore MD
Replaced older unit much improved. Heating system much faster then old design. Exhaust fan higher capacity
from Seattle, WA, United States
We have had this cooktop for a few months as it replaced an electric cooktop with coils. This cooktop was easy to install and looks very nice. The elements heat up very fast and boil water faster than gas cooktops we have seen. We also like that the glass top only heats up in the area of the cooking elements and does not heat up a larger area. The exhaust fan housing is very large and difficult to hook up an exhaust vent. Expect that the exhaust system will take up more room in your bottom cabinet than older models. It is taking a while to find the correct dial settings to get the heat you want. Also, it seem a little odd that the dials start out at high when you first turn them on. The fan does this as well. The fan motor is very strong and we noticed with it on high, it is hard to add salt and pepper as the fan sucks it away. Although the glass surface looks very nice, it scratches easily and is hard to keep clean.
Make Some Changes
from Minneapolis, MN, United States
Bought this cooktop a couple of months ago as part of a kitchen upgrade. Cooking functions/electronics are fine. But, the shiny, black glass surface shows every little drip, blemish, and mark, and I'm constantly having to clean it with the GE recommended product just to keep it looking decent. Redesign the surface material and you'll have a winner.

I feel fortunate to be the owner of my new appliance.
from Buhl, Idaho, United States
We moved into a home in the country and are updating the fixtures and appliances and so on, and we just installed our new cook top. Just wanted to tell you that I used to think that sliced bread was the neatest thing ever now I have to let you and anyone else know that this cook top is even better than THAT!!! It was the best decision we made so far in our DIY remodel.
Clean, sleak look and easy to install.

About Me Avid Cook
Clean, sleak look with a nice looking stainless steel edge. Electronic controls are easy to use. Easy to install. Reported measurements are exact, to the 1/8 inch. If you have an existing counter cut out, double check your measurements before ordering. The power supply hangs down quite far, which can be an issue in spaces with limited vertical clearance under the stove top.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was prompt. However, given the cost, a signature was required, which means someone needs to be home at time of delivery; very inconvenient for normal, employed people.
from Atlanta, GA, United States
This cooktop is extremely sensitive to cracking. I dropped a plastic cup on it and it shatterred at the edge and caused a huge crack. And the glass top (I have black) is extremely difficult to keep clean -- even with the specific cook top cleaners recommended. Plus the bottom right burner which is the larger one and used the most, seems to be very hot -- even on the lower/simmer settings.
