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.

Great induction cooktop
from Minneapolis, MN, United States
Comments about GE Stainless Electric Induction Cooktop:
We had to have an electric cooktop or oven, but did want the old-fashioned kind and had no experience with induction cooktops. We chose this cooktop with some apprehension, but are amazed at how easy it is to use and clean. Glad we bought this one.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

When we did the kitchen remodel, I wanted this cooktop, gave up other wants to get it. Well worth the decision. I love my cooktop.

Clean, efficient cooking
from Bethesda, MD, United States
I love to cook and for years have lusted after a gas cook top. When the electric stove finally needed replacing I researched all my options, reading many online reviews and discussions posts. A review of induction cooking on an obscure blog convinced me that induction was the way to go rather than gas. And I'm SO glad I did. Not only is the cook top incredibly clean and streamlined in looks, it makes cooking so much more efficient. Temperature control is instantaneous. This model has a well-designed layout, and the selection of element sizes have been appropriate for every meal I've prepared to date. I also appreciate the safety of an induction cook top - the elements and pot handles don't retain heat, and the cook top does not heat up unless an appropriate pan makes contact with the element. A neighbor who confessed to being a messy chef does not like his induction cook top at all - and I would agree that induction cooking requires you to clean up splatters and foods that boil over, but I have not encountered any problems. (It depends on your cooking style is, I guess!) Easy to clean and very simple to operate with the touch-button sensors, this GE cooktop has been a hugely welcome upgrade to our kitchen and to my cooking experience in general.
36 inch GE induction cooktop
from Rogers, AR, United States
Excellent product. Water boils much faster. Cooking temperatures much easier to regulate. Can lower temperature from a high heat to simmering and see immediate results Much safer around grandchildren.
from Torrance, CA, United States
I bought this unit two months ago to replace a 20-year old induction cooktop. I have been very satisfied with its performance so far and only hope it will be durable for many more years to come. The new cooktop is quieter and more powerful than the old unit. It also looks great.
Good induction cooktop
from Arcadia, CA, United States
It's a good induction cooktop. The reason that I can't rate it higher is because: 1. Not easy to change the setting of a cooking element. For example, if you want to change from 9 to 3, you need to keep pressing the "-" for about 2 seconds. 2. The timer is useless. It only sounds an alarm when the time is up. I can do it better with my cell phone. The timer should control the cooking time of a cooking element.
from Franklin, TN, United States
It looks nice and heats things up quickly. Since the bottom of the pan must be flat and magnetic we are limited on cook ware availability. Had to give away all our old pans.
