This is my first cooktop...although I have owned and used a variety of ranges (gas, smooth top and coil) this is my first induction. I love it! Even if you don't cook often, I highly recommend a 36" as the extra space is invaluable. Induction cooks quickly, does not overheat the kitchen when you have several pots cooking simultaneoulsy, cleans easily, and shuts off automatically one you remove the pan from the heating element. Special pots/pans are required....however, it gave me the excuse to invest in a good set of cookware that will last more than a lifetime. The cook top is easy to use and easy to clean - however I would recommend purchasing the cooktop without the stainless steel trim. I felt that it was not necessary to match the other stainless steel appliances in the kitchen and would not catch slight crumbs. I really can't comment on the price as it was an upgrade appliance when I had my house built...I am sure the builders charged me more than retail.

I have to say that I am disappointed in the service life of this cooktop. I have gone decades with conventional stovetops with nary a problem, but a bit over two years of light use and this unit has about $1400 worth of repair bills in one failure (a filter board went bad). It tells me that G.E. isn't making things very well anymore and you may have to go elsewhere for quality products.When it worked it worked well. It can heat up a can of chili in a sauce pot in about 80 seconds, quite remarkable when you think about it.Cleanup is a breeze. There are literally no moving parts so there is no cleanup issue.The other big detractor is that the induction aspects of the cooking system makes it really hard to cook when you have an old favorite pan that is not ferrous. Once you get over that it's a nice cook top.

Comments about GE Stainless Electric Induction Cooktop:
I cannot tell you how much I love this cooktop! Sleek, fast to boil water, very adjustable controls, and scratch and dirt resistant. make sure your induction cookware is completely flat on the bottom otherwise it will hum.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my favorite GE product ever!
from West Hartford, CT, United States
I love this!! It Is fast, responsive and easy to clean. What could be better
Very nice, something to get used to though
from Blue Mounds, WI, United States
My husband hates this ONLY because it takes forever to cook his eggs...the only thing he makes EVER. I however like it a lot, especially how fast it can boil water. I had to buy all new cookware for the induction, which was fine but costly. It is gorgeous and user friendly, but definitely takes some getting used to. We've only had electric.
Lots of cooking area and very controllable
from NE Kansas
Large cooking area and room for lots of pans and pots. Quicker than any other cooktops I have owned at getting pans to temp for frying or at bring water to a boil. Quicker than a gas cooktop and more controllable. I finally have a cooktop that can hold something at warm temp without scorching. Still have to stir once in a while just not as often or constantly like a gas cooktop. Gives that extra time to work on addition items for our meals.

I had one of the original induction cooktops from the 80's. I had it rebuilt once and when it died the second time could not get parts. I loved this cooktop so much and was so glad they started making them again because I did not want any other kind.
Better then gas!
from Scottsdale, AZ, United States
This induction cooktop is every bit as responsive as the gas stove I cooked on for 19 years. I love the way it looks on my granite counter top, it is extremely easy to clean and serves as additional counter space when I am not cooking on it. It is the perfect solution since I now live in a 'no gas' community.
from Binghamton, NY, United States
We just purchased this cooktop and already are so impressed with it. It was easy to install and very user friendly. We were amazed at how quickly it boiled water (about 1 minute!). I am very excited to start cooking with this.

New to induction cooking
from Denton, TX, United States
First induction cooktop and love it. Heats very quickly and temp control is quite precise. Only need to use higher settings to boil water. Easy to clean up and very attractive on counter top as well.
