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.

BOTH MY WIFE AND I LIKE COOKING. WE HAD ANOTHER GE COOKTOP WHICH WE HAD FOR 52 YEARS, BUT THIS NEW ONE FAR SURPASSES THE OLD. WE BOTH HAVE COOKED ON A GAS RENAGE AND OUR NEW INDUCTION COOK TOP ALLOWS US TO FINE TUNE OUR COOKING SETTINGS JUST LIKE ON GAS.

Easy to use, easy to clean...sorry I had to purchase new pots and pans though

This was a replacement cooktop, my other was ancient. I loved the upgrade! Smooth, easy to clean and easy to operate. The only thing I'm unhappy with it on is the touch sensors are quirky. Even in the lock mode, I can be cleaning it and the lights tend to flash and it beeps repeatedly
BEST cooktop ever!!!
from Surfside Beach, SC, United States
Fast, precise cooking. Easy clean up. Looks as good as it performs. Love this cook top!!
Fast and efficient!
I replaced a GE Profile electric cooktop with this GE Profile electric INDUCTION cooktop. Very happy I did. Easier to clean without the knobs and it really does cook as fast and efficient as gas. I cook popcorn (the old fashion way - no microwave) in 60 seconds flat! May be even lessâ€¦ After reading all reviews on all sites - they are accurate with a 5 star rating!
you have complete control of the heat.

I have the induction now for 2 months and find it fantastic. From simmer to full boil you are in complete control of the heat.

We purchased this cooktop in Feb 2012 when we purchased our new home and remodeled the kitchen. We love to cook, wanted a 36" 5 element cooktop with a contemporary design and touch controls. This unit fit the bill. Set into the quartz countertop, the cooktop is simple and elegant. Cooking is very fast. Touch controls are intuitive and easy to use. When running on H, the element will emit a low hum/pulse as the temperature in the pot or pan comes up. We did have do buy new pots/pans as our old set was not induction compatible. Easy trick if you have cast iron cookware - place a paper towel on the element, then your pot/pan, as this will avoid scratches on the glass top. First time users should be cautious not to place anything on top of the control area (pan, plate, tea towel etc) as this will cause the cooktop to go into fail safe - all elements will flash E and beep loudly - and you will have to remove whatever caused the alarm, and then wait a moment to touch a control to reset the cooktop. We would definitely stay with induction cooktops in future homes

Gas is not an option where I live. This cooktop is the next best thing! It heats up quickly and temperature reduction is quick as well! Just like having a gas cooktop!
