I wanted to replace an old cooktop that was apparently 'large'. This was one of the larger models, and it had the extra features of dual & triple rings, and the one area for the whole side to be 1 burner. So far, this cooktop has been great. I do cook a meal for my family every night, and I have had no trouble with it. The installation (mind you, my husband did it!), went very smooth. There was a roll of heat resistance tape to put under the edges, this was about the only part that could go wrong. If someone doesn't have a steady hand, it might not go on straight. However, using this tape does create a 'hiding place' for crumbs. It is very easy to clean, but just don't forget about it, or it will get gross! The cook top, can get messy, like any other flat cooking surface, and if this is your first one, make sure you find the best way to clean them (I like Bon-ami), but they send a small bottle of cleaner with it. The ONLY negative I see with this, is the removable nobs. They stick up quite a ways, so grease/crumbs/dust get under them regularly. They are not easy to clean around, so I usually take them off weekly and throw them in the dishwasher or quick rinse them, and wipe underneath. If you can spend a couple hundred more, get the flat top with the built-in buttons, but then you have to hope the computer/electronic part doesn't go bad! I was ok knowing that this would possibly be a pain. I've used about every burner, but tend to use the back ones more (I have small kids and don't like using the ones up front). The warmer does take some getting used to, it takes awhile to get warm and don't plan to use it if you only need a few mins out of it - it won't be warm by then! Overall, this cooktop is exactly what I was looking for in a black, large, flat top. I have had no issues with functionality, and will probably will at the same brand again after this one dies (hopefully in 30 years)!

We purchased this cooktop because it had all the different heating areas we were used to and had a warming burner. We also prefer knobs to touch. Unfortunately, we weren't expecting the difficulty in keeping this cooktop clean. Having had a smooth cooktop for fifteen years that was a breeze to keep clean, we were shocked with fifteen years of advancement, that the surface is so difficult to clean and keep clean. Not sure knowing this now, if we would buy this cooktop again.

Comments about GE Profile 36" Built-In CleanDesign Electric Black Cooktop:
Got this to replace an older style and couldn't be happier! They kept the bridge element - we use it a LOT for making breakfast on a double burner griddle. The controls are clearly marked to let you know which function you are using on a burner. Having TWO adjustable size burners is a great upgrade from the previous model as we often use larger pots & pans.

Trying to keep this cooktop looking good
from Philadelphia, PA, United States
The "hot surface lights have a mind their own. They decide to shut down or stay on indefinetly.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Sleek look but too delicate
from Searingtown, NY, United States
Looks beautiful but that cannot be the only reason why you should buy a stove top. You have to be extremely carful when using it. Easily can get damaged and crack.
from Florence, SC, United States
It is very attractive and layed out. The only thing I do not like is that the nobs do get warm.
LOVE THIS COOKTOP - IT HAS EVERYTHING!
from Minneapolis, MN, United States
When we remodeled our kitchen we purchased all new appliances. This cooktop has everything. Love the large 3 burners in the middle. The only burner I have ever had that would accommodate my canning pot! It also has a bridge burner. I shopped around a lot and you never saw the oversized burner and a bridge burner. I just love, love, love my cooktop!
from Colorado Springs, CO, United States
The cooktop is beautiful, works great, and is simple to use. The black is harder to keep clean that my old white one (which never looked clean anymore anyway.
Quick heat response
We have loved every minute using our new GE cooktop.
Beware the stickers rub off!
from Central Florida
Ours came with our home when we purchased. No complaints on function as it has worked beautifully, however the stickers (paint?) rub off and disappear with repeated cleanings which cannot be avoided. GE doesn't offer replacement decals.....so you are left guessing what the buttons do or writing on the stove with a sharpie marker.
Put in this cook top when we updated our whole kitchen and am very happy.
from Frankston, TX, United States
Replaced an old stove top with this truly beautiful and user friendly product. We love it!!!
