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.

It's beautiful and easy to clean
from Granite Bay, CA, United States
Comments about GE Stainless Electric Induction Cooktop:
This cooktop needs attention each time you use it, but it is beautiful. It's very easy to clean and because it's such a focal point in our house, I polish it each time I use it. By polish, I mean wipe up with sponge and then use a dry clean towel. That's it! Easy and worth it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The new cooktop looks great in our kitchen. Heats up incredibly fast. Easy to control cooking temp, easy to clean. Very happy with this product.

Great looking. Easy clean up. Fast heating. I love it! I will recommend it to all my friends.
Top Drawer gets burning hot when I am cooking
from Florida, United States
I am new to induction. What I do not like is that while i have a burner on I can not set anything else on the cooktop. I do realize that with no burner on that i can lock the cooktop ` that is to be able to set many things on it. Also the first drawer below my cooktop gets unbelievably hot. I actually should call your service department as to how hot the drawer beneith it gets while I am cooking. Also, I often time cook with two small pots, there is no burner to accept a second small pot. Terrible feature. I do of course love that the burner is not hot immediately after i take the pots off of it. I do love how easy even spilt over messes are to clean up. thank you for that awesome feature.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
cooks like gas without the flame!
By AZ Farfalla
from Scottsdale, AZ, United States
I wanted a GE Product in my remodeled kitchen because a GE Refrigerator that my Parents bought in 1940 is still going strong even though it has never needed a repair!! I enjoy using this induction type, sleek looking, easy to clean cooktop. It accommodates 5 pots/pans and cooks with the responsiveness of gas but is much safer to use because there is no open flame and there are no knobs to clean around. When I am not cooking on it, it can be used as additional counter space. I am hoping my 2009 purchase will perform as well as my Parents' 1940 purchase. So far - so good ...

I had a one burner induction unit and decided to go with induction in my dream kitchen. I will never have anything different. It is the very best. It has surpassed all my expectations. Every one I know wants one. The features are endless and the ease of cleaning us the biggest plus EVER. Just a warm damp cloth and a little drying with a towel and it is perfect.

I have never had a stove top like this before. I would never go back. The quality that this cooks is truly amazing. The ability that it has to heat up a pan so fast is amazing. I would recommend this to anyone! Forget the traditional oven, this is the new way to go!
Great cooktop, As fast as gas
from Ohio, United States
Bought this induction cooktop and cannot believe how fast it heats up. Once you turn it on the pan is hot, cooks like a dream very little recovery time to heat back up when items are added to the pot. Boils 2 cups of water in 1 minute
from Rice Lake, WI, United States
Even heat. Gets hot fast for browning. Looks neat & clean. I did have one surprise with a pot that claimed to be 18/8 stainless, but I got an error message & it just did not work. I have learned to take a magnet with me to shop for cookware.
Easy to Use and Easier to Keep Clean
from Killeen, TX, United States
I've been using this cooktop for four months and am totally impressed. A watched pot actually boils quickly. Cleanup is a breeze. The touch controls could be a bit more sensitive, but it works great in every other way.
