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.

Terrific performer in the kitchen!
from Newark, DE, United States
I love the quickness of heating at any level on my cooktop. I also like the timer feature built right in as well as the "control lock" capability. All-in-all my GE cooktop is the best!

we are updating our kitchen to all stainless steel appliances. This unit replaced our old GE counter top. My wife cannot believe how quickly you can bring a pot of water to boil.
Great features, heats just as advertised

Just like gas

The extra money for induction was well worth it. Having used the standard glass stove for years I was surprised how fast the new stove heated things. Boiling water no longer took 30 minutes.

Takes getting used to cooking with induction. Had to purchase magnetic cookware. Love consistent and quick heat. Is a little noisy. Large burner doesn't work with some magnetic pans. Still checking on this before calling repairman. Location of large burner is under handle of microwave which could cause a problem with Metallic Plastic Handle covering as reported in other reviews. Love ease of cleaning and looks. Overall, a great purchase.
Good cooktop but some issues
from Southern California
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
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.
