Just moved into our new home built here in Mart Tx and we put this cooktop because it is a GE Profile and our second one we have purchased. The first one replaced another cooktop in our last home. The grates are very durable, and we like that you can sit your cooking pot or pan anywhere as they are all connected. This is the easiest to clean up, we just use soap and hot water after each use. The grates once in a while go into the dishwasher and come out like new. We sat a cast iron grill on the back burners, and use this so often. There are different levels of BTU on the burners, great feature. It also has a safety lock if you have small children. It looks great with the new counter top. I prefer a cooktop to a free standing stove because it gives room below the cooktop for big pull out drawers or shelves for storing cookware, and this cooktop is 36 inches giving room for serious stove top cooking. We bought all new GE Profile appliances for this new home, wait till I tell you about our new GE Profile Convection Wall Ovens, again, Thank You GE for good quality in all the features of this cooktop!

No inner ring on the large burner really reduces its usefulness. Extremely hard to keep clean. Not reliable - when you clean it, don't get water under the control knobs... at best you'll temporarily short things out, and at worst you'll have to have the main board replaced for a few hundred dollars (spoken from experience). The knobs are also very imprecise - there's a lot of play in them, meaning you can move the knob from 4 to 6 without actually changing the flame.

Special ordered, 36" cooktop with the features that I wanted it fit the design of the re modeled kitchen. The old appliances were similar yet these were an upgrade, excellent function and classic rich look

Great style

By 

from Clarksville, TN, United States

Comments about GE Profile 36" Stainless Electric Cooktop:

I have all GE appliances in my new home and the stove top is very modern and sleek. My only issue is after use of stove the cleaning of it sucks. I literally have to use a razor blade to scrape spillage that may have landed on the hot stove while cooking. Still nice concept but wish there was a better way of making stove easier to wipe clean after use.

Hard to keep clean

By

Comments about GE Profile 36" Stainless Electric Cooktop:

Works great but is hard to keep this cooktop clean. Had a previous model without the "shiny" black glass and it was much easier to keep looking good.

Just what we were looking for

By 

from Phoenix, AZ, United States

Comments about GE Profile 36" Stainless Electric Cooktop:

This is our 3rd glass cook top to replace the others after breaking. The cracks always started at the edges so we wanted one with a metal edge. Also we wanted knobs, harder to clean but you don't change the setting with an inavertant touch. We love the burner combinations.

Disappointed

By 

from Joplin, MO, United States

Comments about GE Profile 36" Stainless Electric Cooktop:

Thought I was getting a five burner. Store manager told me it was a five burner. No. Four burners and a warmer. I can warm in the oven! Why take up valuable space on a supposedly upgraded model with a warmer. Idea for design folks - get someone in who actually cooks for more than two people and try to prepare a holiday meal on these miniature "stoves". Also takes forever to heat up to boiling point.

Delightful!

By 

from Phoenix, AZ, United States

Comments about GE Profile 36" Stainless Electric Cooktop:

When we decided to get a new cosmetic look in our kitchen, but without any remodeling, we went for all new GE appliances again to hopefully fit in the existing appliance areas. Not only did we not have to do any remodeling, but are elated at the products available that fit our existing dimensions. The bonus is that GE still makes beautiful appliances that work forever! Our new Cook Top is no exception!
