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:
Don't worry if you hear a humming when its on high, that's normal. Love the timer, love that there is an option to lock the controls yet still be able to use the timer. It works just like a gas stove if not faster boil time!! Excellent stovetop, don't buy anything else. I have owned a gas stove, electric stovetop, and this buy far is the best!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Really like using the induction cooktop.
from Washington, United States
Has been easy to use. Like how quickly it heats items. Plus the fact it has five burners. Liking the lock controls feature for cleaning the top.
Better than gas.
from Biloxi, MS, United States
I bought the cook top about 3 months ago, and I haven't regretted it for a moment. My wife, who hates to cook, will on occasion use it. The temp control is just like gas, it heats up fast just like gas, and it stops cooking once you lower the temp - just like gas. If there was one item I would change is that the heating eyes are hard to see. I would make them stand out a little more.
Heats quickly, cleans easily
from Louisville, KY, United States
I bought this 4 months ago. It has been a pleasure to use. It heats quickly and cleans easily. My only issue was it was very difficult to find pots to match the recommended cooking dimensions. I guess this is an issue with all induction cook tops.

Replaced old electric cooktop with the new induction cooktop when moving into newly-purchased home. Had induction in previous home, and all the induction cookware, so preferred staying with it.

This cooktop performs as well as a gas cooktop with features that are better than a gas cooktop we previously were acustomed to use.
Oops - lose that drawer
from Ormond Beach, FL, United States
Only realized that the cooktop required 12 to 14 inches of clearance for proper venting and prevention of combustion at time of installation. So, that utensil drawer I had build on the new island had to go. But it's all good! I love how quickly I can bring a pot to boil now and cleanup is a breeze. Since I can not have natural gas in my kitchen, this is the next best thing.
Exceptional versatility in heat settings
By Grumpy Jooj

Purchased as part of a new ly built home along with other high end appliances
As good as the old one it replaced.
from Scottsdale, AZ, United States
I am very happy with it and it has one more burner than the old one.
Fast, Cool Cooking
from Delray Beach, FL, United States
I like to cook on cast iron so this induction cooktop was a perfect fit when remodeling my kitchen. It is super fast at heating my pans, yet cools just as quickly. The stove top is easy to keep clean and looks very smart in my kitchen. Giving operation instructions to my stay-over guests has not been an issue. Even my 12 year old granddaughter found it simple to use. My only caution is don't run away as foods will cook faster so stay nearby and monitor whatever you are cooking. It won't be long before you bring a delicious treat to the table.
