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.

Good cooktop but some issues
from Southern California
Comments about GE Profile 30" Electric Black Cooktop:
I would give my cooktop a 3.5 rating. The rating stems from two issues. The first is that the left front burner, the easiest one to use, cooks unevenly. Especially when using saute or fry pans, food in some parts of the pan cooks faster than in others. So when making bacon, the outer third of each slice cooks slower than the rest of the slice. This makes it difficult to cook large or long items. My pans are recommended for this cooktop, lie inside the outer perimeter of the cooking area, and have a flat bottom The second issue is cleaning. Grease got under a skillet and burned into the surface. I am still unable to remove the burned matter using the recommended cleaner and a lot of elbow grease. I've also tried suggestions I read in online forums (ie., baking soda) without success. Overall, I would still buy induction over gas, but perhaps not this model PHP900SMSS
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Simple to use
from Lewisburg, PA, United States
Good value.Easy to use and clean.Nice appearance and easy 2 install.
from Pittsburgh, PA
This cooktop heats water faster than a gas cooktop can and is much safer with no open flame. It also controls the heat settings beautifully. Can't imagine ever cooking on anything else! Safe for households with curious youngsters and even more curious felines! Overall a winner.
from Birmingham, AL, United States
only had for 6 months but really like it so far. touch controls are easy to use and easy to clean. looks good and the induction works well. would like for the large burner to "see" 6 inch pots/pans.
from Winston Salem NC
Very happy with the new induction cook top! Fast cooking and even.
Very good stove heats well. Replaces a combination 2 induction 2 radiant cooktop. Does require a slight learning curve to effectively use induction heating but that is true with any cooktop heating patterns.
After about 4 months of use this unit is cookin, & W/O gas. That means we're really happy with it, as it has made electric cooking a whole new experience. We have no regrets about going with induction -- no waiting for heat transfer from burner to cookware; fast heat rise, and almost immediate cessation of heat when turned off. The glass surface stays relatively cool and is of very clean design. Controls are easy to use - very minimal looking and all you need. Surface does not burn spills and cleans with a wipe. Also, using all ferrous cookware has not been a constraint at all, and makes me wonder why I ever suffered through all the annoyances of stick-free pans. I can only hope now that the electronics last and I can keep a solid grip on those cast iron pots.
Love, love, love this cooktop! So fast!
from Florida, United States
I LOVE this cooktop! It's so fast, easy to use, cleaning is a breeze! Wish I purchased this years ago. Run & get one!
Easy to clean and shuts off when cookware removed
from Fort Worth, TX, United States
We bought this about two months ago, installed right away with no issues. We have found this cooktop is much easier to clean than the last electric cooktop we had. We like that the burners turn themselves off once the cookware is removed.
Easy to install
from Abilene, TX, United States
I haven't used it yet, but it was very easy to install. Need to get cookware now.
