I have had this cooktop for about a year now, and I am very satisfied with its performance. I did have to change out a few pots and pans, but I was aware that would be the case when I bought the cooktop. This particular model is well thought out. The 11" element heats my largest skillet and stockpot with ease, and while the other elements appear small in comparison, they are actually sized very well for the rest of my pots and pans. Cleanup is a snap with the completely flat surface. The touch controls take a little getting used to, but they work fine once you understand them.More than anything, this review is about induction cooking in general. Compared to gas, you get the same responsiveness to heat, but with even more control. You can't use every pot and pan, but once you're outfitted properly that stops mattering. There is nearly NO residual heat when you cook. That means the kitchen stays nice and cool in the summer. Cool surface means spills clean EASY. There is nearly no risk of an accidental fire, and there is NEVER a chance for a gas leak.Compared to standard electric cooktops, there is no comparison.Induction cooktops are more expensive, no doubt. If you can swallow the cost, you will NOT be disappointed. I don't want to go back to traditional electric or gas.One more plug for this specific unit, after about a year of lots of use, much of it with non-enamled cast iron, my cooktop still looks great and has no scratches.

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.

So far so good with the cooktop. Had to buy special cookware for it but worth every penny. Boils water almost instantly, cooks evenly and quickly. Very satisfied.
I'll never look back!
Love the GE induction stovetop. Perfect layout of different size elements. Of course magnetic pans are a must, but are more common that you may think. Does not 'buzz' like some cheap versions of induction burners

love everything about it, it's great having the top completely flat. I had a cooktop with knob controls inside, and it was hard to keep clean.
We LOVE Induction

We are converted from gas forever. Things cook evenly and are more moist. The product is great. We did crack the glass on the cooktop so be sure not to store anything hard above it. Ours broke when a box of tea fell on it. Seems a bit weak but we figured it hit just the right spot/
Excellent - induction is awesome

Really happy with this cooktop!! Cooking is a snap; powerful even heating allows for quick cooking, yet so much safer than an electric or gas cooktop. Induction is amazing & the burner placement on this cooktop is perfect.
