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

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.

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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have this installed in an island with soapstone counters. It looks wonderful. Considered gas, but the expense to run the lines was too great in my neighborhood. Have always loved Induction Cooking and am so glad I made this choice. What a pleasure to use.
from Portsmouth NH
When I went shopping to replace my electric cooktop, I never thought about an induction one. As I learned more about it, I was convinced it was an excellent option. And when I read reviews and learned about the abbreviated cooking times, I was convinced. And then, the sleek design of the cooktop and the ease of cleaning, WOW I bought it! And I so happy I did. It is all I expected and more. A spectacular cooktop.
Easy to use.

I bought this cooktop after experiencing a friends cooktop.
Love the GE Profile Cooktop
from Bethany Beach, DE, United States
Great cooktop! Has five big burners and cooks faster than gas! Easy to clean and looks really nice in my new kitchen. Our daughter convinced us to go with induction cooking instead of gas and really glad we listened to her! Love it, love it, love it!!
Induction is Awesome!
from Hudsonville, MI
We built a new house and I am cooking with induction for the first time. I grew up with electric but spent the last decade with gas. Induction is the very best of both! I've been a life long lover of GE products and this is no exception. I am still getting used to the touch controls (versus knobs) but that is what makes clean up a breeze. The temperature changes are even more immediate than with gas. I will not be going back to gas. This also had a nice price point.
Love all of the features about it
from Kenly, NC, United States
Got this a couple of months ago and have adapted so nicely to it. Love how it gets hot real quick and then how when you turn it off it is cold right away. So great fro having kids or Grandkids around.
