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 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!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.
WORKS WELL. HEATS WATER TO BOIL QUICKLY.
from Chicago, IL, United States
INSTALLATION WAS EASY. UNIT WORKS GREAT. HEATS WATER TO A ROLLING BOIL QUICKLY AND CONTROLS RETURN TO SIMMER ACCURATELY.
The absolute best!
I love love it! Water comes to a boil quickly, food cooks evenly. No worries about touching a hot surface when burners are off. Very easy to clean. Look greats and compliments my kitchen! A great product. Couldn't be happier with my choice.
from Central NJ
Glad to have made the change from the old electric cook top. Cleaner and faster.
from Washington Township, MI, United States
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!
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.
