We installed GE's new 36" Cafe induction cooktop 1 week ago, and have to say, it is amazing!!! Even after watching many different videos online about the amazing things induction can do, it was still mind boggling to see it in person!! The sheer speed at which you can boil cold water straight from the tap, is unbelievable! So is the instant response when the power level is adjusted! Since there are no hot burners, there's no worry of hard to clean messes from splatters, like on radiant glass cooktops. Now more specific to this cooktop, we love using the griddle on the sync burners!! The top also has a nice size range for each element, unlike most earlier units. You don't have to use cookware the size of the element or larger, you can go quite a bit smaller, and it still works. The top is really nice looking, especially while in use! The LEDs are vibrant and crisp, with a nice design, that reminds me of cool digital gauges from a sports car!! Now a miss that was disappointing. The individual timers for each element, which was a pretty big selling point over many others that don't have that feature, can't be used in conjunction with the kitchen timer that just chimes when it times out. You either have the kitchen timer, which we mostly use, or you have to go into custom settings to have the individual timers that will shut the element off when time is up. Also, it would be quicker and easier to use if you could select an element, then set a time; instead of scrolling from left to right through each element to set them. The next disappointment is the owners manual and installation instructions. They are almost non-existent. They aren't completely specific to the unit. Some parts are, but others are meant more for others, such as the sizes listed for the cutout dimensions. The sizes listed in the instructions are larger than the unit actually is, which led to us having too large of a cutout in our counter, and the new unit not covering the entire hole. I had looked online at the sizes in the instructions, which were exactly what our old cooktop was, but the unit is a half inch less front to back (20-3/8" is the correct size). Now we have to hide the crack somehow or replace our counter sooner than planned. The last miss was the foam tape that is supplied to go between the glass and the counter top. We didn't even get enough to go around a 30" cooktop. I had to stretch each piece to the point of it starting to tear, just to get 3 of the 4 sides. I needed another 21" to finish it (haven't notified GE yet to see how they handle things of that nature).

I am SO disappointed in this cooktop. Not because of the way it cooks but because of how hard it is to keep clean. I bought my first G.E. smooth surface cooktop when we built our house 20 years ago and loved it. So, when we started remodeling our kitchen, I never had a doubt about buying a new larger size smooth G.E. cooktop. However, this new one is a nightmare! Food spatters on the knobs, goes under the knobs, and you have to pull them off to clean and they are not easy to pull off. The surface must be made of a different material than the one I had before because even though I am cleaning with the recommended products and cleaning like instructed, the cleaning takes forever. It has to cleaned throughly every time its used and I have to use a scraper every single time I clean. The recommended cleaning product just seems to smear around like it has oil in it and its like I can't get it to come off. We have only had this new cooktop for about 4 months and I find myself trying to avoid cooking on it because of the long cleanup process. We paid a lot of money for the Cafe series 36" Model CP9536SJSS cook top and I hate it! So, unless you want to spend 30 minutes of your time cleaning the cooktop every single time you cook anything don't buy this one.

Induction cooktop

By 

from Henderson, NV, United States

Comments about GE Profile 36" Built-In CleanDesign Electric Black Cooktop:

I knew about induction cooktops for over 30 years, but was reluctant to buy one. I decided to purchase this one when I replaced my kitchen and I was glad I did. It was great move. The elements have more power than gas and just as responsive. It also has a better reliability rating than other induction cooktops by consumer reports.

Numbers are hard to see

By 

from Pigeon Forge, TN, United States

Comments about GE Profile 36" Built-In CleanDesign Electric Black Cooktop:

This unit look great and functions well although the numbers are very hard to see. We have six "CAN" lights in our kitchen with two over the cook top and still the dark number on the black surface are next to impossible to see. After owning the cook top now for a few months we have become somewhat accustomed to where the dile should go with see the numbers. Love the flat look and the temperature range and other features.

Solid product

By 

from Indiana, United States

Comments about GE Profile 36" Built-In CleanDesign Electric Black Cooktop:

We have been using this stovetop for several months and love it. Wish we could set an automatic shutoff timer and it is difficult to clean at times. Other than these two things it is a solid product so far.

Cooking is a joy!

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about GE Profile 36" Built-In CleanDesign Electric Black Cooktop:

I do not cook a great deal, so I am still getting use to the settings to move from boil to simmer or cook. I do not find the numbers intuitive, however they definitely seem very consistent. It is incredible how fast it heats us and cools off.

Love it except it scratches too easily

By 

from Overland Park, KS, United States

Comments about GE Profile 36" Built-In CleanDesign Electric Black Cooktop:

It heats rapidly and temperature control is almost instant. However, the surface scratches WAY TOO EASILY. I bought top of the line induction cookware - bottoms are smooth - and any movement of the pots and pans causes scratches on a completely clean surface.
