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.

Just had the top installed so do not have any accessories. Have used just a few times. Very easy.

Delivery was to Bend, Oregon. The only problem was scheduling a convenient time for delivery since signature was required. UPS was very helpful. They allowed me to pick it up at their facility after hours.

Awesome product by GE. Top notch customer service provided by Abt. I installed this myself and it was a snap.

This unit replaced our same model cook top that burner stopped working after 7+ years.This same model that was installed does not have a time as our older model had.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Modern cooktop features.
from Hilton Head Island, SC, United States
Love the smooth cooktop. Easy to clean with the electronic features that eliminate knobs.
Expandable cooking elements, poor instructions
from Marietta, GA, United States
My wife loves the expandable cooking elements, especially the 6"/9"/12" tri-ring element. However, the directions to install the cooktop, replacing an existing cooktop were incorrect and caused significant frustration. The website advised to purchase the cutout filler trim kit, as the previous cooktop was marginally larger than the GE unit. The instructions in kit stated to reduce opening to 28-1/2 x 19-1/2. When I went to place the new GE unit into the space, it wouldn't fit. The instructions for a new installation stated 28-1/2 x 19-5/8! Surprise! There were several screws on the sides of the cooktop bottom, with heads that stuck out. The actual width was closer to 19-3/4. Needless to say, I was not happy. Please make your instructions consistent.
EXCELLENT EQUIPMENT, EASY TO USE

We recently installed and we are pleased with this cooktop!!

appearance, easy to clean, modern look, price was a little high.
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.

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!
