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.

Comments about GE Profile 30" Electric Black Cooktop:
I've been using this cooktop for 5 months now and have no complaints. The cooktop looks sleek, cleans up easily, heats up very quickly and keeps temperature steadily. While the area near a cooking pot gets warm from ambient heat, it does not get hot enough to burn or even pull your hand back in warning. I routinely wipe up spills around the pot as it's cooking. We bought new cookware to use since most of my old cookware did not have a metal base. We also bought an Induction Hob Heat diffuser to use some non-metallic items on the cooktop (we love our little espresso pot but it didn't work on the stove) and it works really well. The 4 burners are sized great for most things but a 2nd larger burner would be appreciated. Only a few very minor items to mention. In some light the burner pad can be a little difficult to see making it hard to determine if your pan is place optimally. The control lock button still sometimes allows the cooktop to beep while I'm cleaning it. Neither issue effects my enjoyment of the cooktop.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Clean modern look
from Castle Rock, CO, United States
Just installed today. Tuurned it on and everything operates as it should. It is by far the most attractive cooktop on the market.
Outstanding look!! So clean and easy clean!

Out first induction and we have loved trying it out. Amazingly fast clean and safe.. So much better than any I have ever owned.
from Lynchburg, VA
We were looking to replace a failing electric cooktop with gas when I stumbled on an article about induction cooking on the internet. After much reading we decided to try it - i.e. this cooktop is our first experience with induction. We were already in the market for new pots and pans so that requirement wasn't a problem. However the power requirement was greater than my old cooktop, so I had to run a new 40 amp circuit. After getting past that surprise, all went well. We did have a few missteps at the beginning (burned pans, etc) until we learned to use a lot lower setting than we were accustom. But once we learned how to cook on it, we have loved this cooktop. We have been using it about a year and have not one complaint. Both my wife and I do a lot of cooking and have found this to be the best cooktop we have ever used. The only possible issue is that we if ever have to go back to standard conduction cooking it will be VERY difficult.
Great when works
from Oakland, ca
Stopped working after two years. Touchpad went bad, which is apparently not rare. repairs are so expensive that at this rate it will cost approx 30% of the purchase price every two years. Which is steep.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Love this cooktop
Just moved into my new house and love this cooktop. It responds so quickly and looks great too!
Quick to boil temperature
from Tucson, AZ, United States
The cook top is easy to clean and I should have bought this sooner. It is definitely a time saver bringing food to a boiling temperature so timing can begin to cook the food.
Easy Use and cleanup

First days of usage.....no better product available.
from Ray, MI
We love this cooktop. We always had gas stoves/ovens. We are sold completely on this induction cooktop inspite of having to buy new pots & pans. It boils water quicker than gas. Keeps even temps and cools to touch within 5 or so minutes.
GE Profile 30" Induction Cooktop Rocks!!
from Lorton, VA, United States
I was exposed to induction cooktops in Europe, and had not seen many in the USA, but decided to see what was available. We found several makes, but because of the design and features, we chose the GE Profile, and we are very glad we did. It was easy to install, it works great, and it has really made our kitchen look much more attractive.
