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.

I bought this about a month ago when I had my kitchen counters replaced. I had an older electric element-style stovetop. This one is so much nicer, very easy to use, and very quick to heat up my pots and pans! It's very easy to clean with the proper cooktop cleaner, and always looks nice. The only thing I don't like is that I have to remember to turn the "lock" button on in order to clean it, or the magnetic elements turn on, since it's a touch-screen. But that's not a big deal; the benefits far outweigh that issue! I love the clean, sleek appearance! No more cleaning burner bibs!
Looks great! Cooks great!

Purchased about 2 months ago and am loving it. I set the cooking temp to what I want, say medium, and the food cooks at medium. I also like the fact that there is a control lock and a timer. The cook top is very easy to keep clean. Only drawback was the price, but, if it continues to perform as it is, I think it is worth the cost.

Fast, efficient and clean. The profile cooktop is GEasy!
Great stove top
from Texas, United States
I love, love, love, my new stove top. You can adjust the temperature immediately. It cooks so evenly and wonderfully. I highly recommend it to anyone who hates electric cooking. It is more like gas.
speed is amazing - control is terrific
from Charleston, SC, United States
The unit gets hot fast. We were amazed. You can also control the temp easily and very accurately. Had to buy new pans but my wife didn't mind that too much.

We love this top. Bought it for a kitchen remodel because wife did not want gas. You do need induction cookware, but we already had a set. Super quick. You can boil water faster than putting it in the microwave. If we had to do over would probably get the model without stainless trim.

Bought thios unit as part of a kitchen renovation. Excellent!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
So far works great
Had this induction cooktop for about two months and it works as advertised. Water boils in about two minutes. There is a humming when the unit is running, but not too bad. Only negative is finding pans that work properly.
Induction is the way to go.
from Thibodaux, LA
An older GE induction cook-top was in our house when we bought the place ten years ago. We had never heard of induction cooking but immediately adapted to it; it has the best features of gas and electric cooking combined. We recently updated our kitchen and had no question about putting in a new induction cook-top. At the same time we had been so satisfied with our old GE model we stuck with the brand and have had no regrets.
