I wanted to replace an old cooktop that was apparently 'large'. This was one of the larger models, and it had the extra features of dual & triple rings, and the one area for the whole side to be 1 burner. So far, this cooktop has been great. I do cook a meal for my family every night, and I have had no trouble with it. The installation (mind you, my husband did it!), went very smooth. There was a roll of heat resistance tape to put under the edges, this was about the only part that could go wrong. If someone doesn't have a steady hand, it might not go on straight. However, using this tape does create a 'hiding place' for crumbs. It is very easy to clean, but just don't forget about it, or it will get gross!The cook top, can get messy, like any other flat cooking surface, and if this is your first one, make sure you find the best way to clean them (I like Bon-ami), but they send a small bottle of cleaner with it. The ONLY negative I see with this, is the removable nobs. They stick up quite a ways, so grease/crumbs/dust get under them regularly. They are not easy to clean around, so I usually take them off weekly and throw them in the dishwasher or quick rinse them, and wipe underneath. If you can spend a couple hundred more, get the flat top with the built-in buttons, but then you have to hope the computer/electronic part doesn't go bad! I was ok knowing that this would possibly be a pain. I've used about every burner, but tend to use the back ones more (I have small kids and don't like using the ones up front). The warmer does take some getting used to, it takes awhile to get warm and don't plan to use it if you only need a few mins out of it - it won't be warm by then!Overall, this cooktop is exactly what I was looking for in a black, large, flat top. I have had no issues with functionality, and will probably will at the same brand again after this one dies (hopefully in 30 years)!

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.

Comments about GE Profile 36" Black Built-In CleanDesign Electric Cooktop:
Cooktop has plenty of burners that heat up quickly. The only thing I would change is possibly the color. It tends to attract dust very quickly. It's a challenge keeping it clean.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Beautiful Clean Look, heats rapidly
from St. Petersburg, Florida, United States
The stove-top went installed easily once I lined someone up who could make small adjustments on the existing hole to drop it in. Beautiful stove top, clean lines, heats up very very fast. Excited about many years of great cooking ahead.

Love the sleek look.

The sleekness looks great on the granite counters. Love the stainless steel buttons and trim.
from New Braunfels, TX, United States
Has lock knob to lock cooktop from little wondering fingers. 5 burners and tons of extras. I need to study it more to figure out what some of them even are. Heats up quickly.
