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.

Love this cooktop!!

Comments about GE Profile 30" Electric Black Cooktop:
I deliberated for several weeks and researched whether to purchase gas or induction. A salesperson finally convinced me that gas created a lot of heat in smaller kitchens, so I decided on induction. I researched consumer reports and they suggested this cook top. I could not be more pleased. Having not cooked with induction before the response time is unbelievable. Water boils in just a minute. The burners do not get hot only the cookware. It maintains constant heat so items do not boil over. The last and most important thing is it is a breeze to clean. Just wipes off. Can even wipe off while cooking because burner is not hot. I have not had any spills that I have had to scrape since purchasing this product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We've had this oven for almos 1 year and I love every aspect of it. I use all functions regularly with no flaws. ZHowever, know that there is a learning curve when using the speed cook and convection functions.
Much Better Than the Old Cooktop
from Oakton, VA, United States
Our old cooktop was pretty good, but this one is very much better! The only drawback was that we had to get new cookware; but it was well worth it.
from Allentown, PA, United States
After the control panel was replace the unit works perfect. Bot many pots or pans will work with this stove top. Only the expensive ones. But it's worth the results.

This is the second one I have bought for my second kitchen remodel. Easy to install, always looks clean and performs almost to excatness of gas. Overall a superb unit!
Cooking in the Future
We love our new induction cooktop. It is so much easier to control the heating than with our previous non-induction cooktop. Its almost as controllable as gas. Cookware heats evenly across their diameters and you can boil water in almost no time due to the efficient heat transfer. Only downside is that all cookware needs to be induction capable, so we had to buy a few new pieces. You also have to be care to clean up any spills or spatters before using the cooktop again to avoid "baking on".
from Mount Wolf, PA
Love love love my cook top. I hate to cook and with this cook top have to spend less then half the time doing it. Just amazing how quick water boils. My only regret is that I didn't by induction a long time ago.

Looks great, but already had to have service
from Denver, CO
We bought this when we completely remodeled our kitchen and while it is sleek and modern and cook really fast and efficiently, we had to have GE service come out 3 different times to fix a problem with a burner. I would recommend, but with caveats.
I LOVE my new stove!
from Central Texas
I wanted the precision and speed of a gas stove but did not want to run gas to the house so I decided to try induction. I will never go back to plain electric again! Simple, clean, fast, precise.... all the things it said it would be, even better! It does make a bit of noise (humming sound) when turned on, but not loud and not a bother. I can boil water amazingly fast and when you turn it off, it is OFF... instantly! Wow!!!!
Easy to cook with and clean up and attractive too.
from Shelton, WA, United States
My husband let me pick the applianced for our kitchen remodel and knew nothing about induction cooking. Now he brings all of our guests to demonstrate how fast it boils water. Now I just need an induction ready tea kettle.
