I replaced my 20 year old electric cooktop with this high tech one. I have only had it for a couple of months, but I highly recommend it. I already had the stainless cookware for it. This Induction cooking is amazing ! I turned a pot of water on the "Boost" mode and left the room for only a few minutes. When I returned it was boiling like mad. I have discovered cooking again. And when you turn it off....it's off right now! Love this cooktop. A little pricey, but it is amazing. But now, this is my side of the kitchen, so I have to clean it too. My wife is now off the hook!

The cooktop heats up FAST and has a wide range of heat settings allowing for exacting heat control. That's all very nice. However, the "touch" for making the settings is flakey. Sometimes (and not others) it takes a bit of fussing to get it to recognize that I want to make a change to the heat setting. I always get there eventually. Secondly, the outline of the "burners" is very dim in the glass top, so figuring out where to place the pan can, in lesser lighting, be a problem -- bending my neck one way then another to see where the pan should be set down. A brighter outline to define the placement would have been helpful. Lastly, the control for the upper center burner should have been swapped for the timer control. It doesn't make intuitive sense not to the have the control as near to the burner it represents as possible. It matters much less where the timer control is. Strange that they got this backwards. My complaints are generally minor in content and we'll keep and use this cooktop for a long time, I'm sure.

GE Profile Series 30 " induction cooktop
from St. Ansgar, IA, United States
Comments about GE Profile 30" Electric Induction Black Cooktop:
Bought this as a kitchen remodel. First time with a glass cooktop and first time with induction. Absolutely LOVE this cooktop. The size is perfect for my cooking habits. I did have to buy a new set of cookware for the induction, but that was OK as my cookware was old and in need of replacement. It is easy to clean and to keep clean. I love the smooth surface. I also love induction! Did not take me long to learn how to cook. Can't say anything negative. First time user and believer!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Boils water in a snap
from Knoxville, TN, United States
We replaced a 10 1/2 yr old GE smooth top traditional cooktop during a remodel. This induction cooktop boils water unbelievably fast. Sleek look. Wish they would have made the outlines for the burners a little more pronounced - hard to see exactly where to place the pans in dimmer lighting. We have not noticed the humming - can hear it sometimes, but it is a minor background noise. Overall cooking everything is faster than before. Very happy with our purchase.
easiest to clean
I have had this product for 1 year now and it works excellent. It is the easiest cooktop to clean.
terrific replacement stovetop
from Rush City, MN, United States
We replaced a 20 year old electric cooktop stove. We have friends that got an induction cooktop & did some research on it. Read all the reviews & settled on this GE model. It only took about 2 hours for handy husband to install. Some of the reviews mentioned that burner may hum on high. Mine does but not a big deal when you know it may happen. It was also great to replace old, beatup pots & pans. You do need to have steel bottom pans. (a magnet must stick to the bottom) So, it was fun replacing them too. All in all, a great replacement!!
Wonderful, easy upgrade. Don't think twice
from Wilmington, DE, United States
We have always been saddled with old-ish electric cooktop/stoves. Their inefficiency and sluggishness made me long for the nimbleness of gas. Alas, our new house, again, did not have gas run to the kitchen. After some internet research, I saw induction technology billed as 'responsive as gas and more energy efficient'. I took the leap. It took me about 30 minutes to remove the old cooktop and drop in the new one with no special tools or cutting. By the nature of the technology the cooktop is amazingly responsive, as advertised. The 'burners' put out a ton of energy and you can boil water in no time and cut out the heat just as fast. The digital input takes some getting used to, but aids in reproducing where to set the cooktop for various cooking each time. I find I do need to use the Control Lock function a lot as the cat likes to sit on the stove when not in use. He is not magnetic and cannot turn it on, but it will beep a lot. Also, getting my finger on the buttons just right can take a try or two, especially when wet or dirty.
Cool and Quick
from Sun City, AZ, United States
We have been using our new cooktop for the past month and have been very pleased. It heats up fast and the surrounding area is cool to the touch so it doesn't heat up the kitchen. It cleans beautifully with the cleaner that came with it and we love it.
from Arizona, United States
I am very happy with this cooktop. Looks fantastic on a white countertop.
I'm in love
from Ocean Isle Beach, NC, United States
I bought this induction cooktop to replace a 40 (probably) year old Jenn-Air cooktop, about two weeks ago. Wow, this cooktop looks good and is so sensitive by comparison. I can boil water faster than in the microwave, but also can get the perfect simmer temperature. Unlike radiant cooktops, when you turn this burner down, the temperature reduces immediately. So far it is a snap to clean, and I especially like the lock feature to avoid the burners being turned on unintentionally.
cooking my way into the 21st century
from Norwalk, OH, United States
my newly remodeled kitchen includes a convection oven and this induction cooktop. looking forward to trying old and new recipes using this modern technology. love the feeling of control with the many temperature settings, appreciate the many safety features, such as auto shut-off and the ability to lock the cooktop when not in use. and i'm especially happy to have a good excuse to get some new and better cookware. movin' on up!
Love Induction cooking
from Lawton, OK, United States
I've been using my new cooktop over a month now. It is as good if not better than cooking with gas. Heats up really fast, cools down really fast. Clean up is a breeze too.
