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 Profile 36" Black Electric Induction Cooktop:
I am so happy to have this in my home! Clean up is such a breeze and cooking is fast! I don't have to use high settings and when I turn it off, it is off...no more boiling! I was not sure in the beginning, but I am sold! Finding the right pots and pans is a little challenging, but worth the work!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love the control
from Reston, VA, United States
My husband just installed our new GE induction stove top it is all it was touted to be. One cup of water came to a rolling boil in 38 seconds. The control is great.
from Catawissa, PA, United States
Just bought but already like how it looks and cooks. The pots quickly get hot and cooking is easily regulated. Food an actually be simmered. The ceramic cook top is easy to clean. Know I will enjoy the look in my island for a long time.
Love the new cooktop
from Danville, CA, United States
Switched from gas to induction cooktop for the safety of the grandkids. So far we love it. Easier than the gas cook top to clean plus almost just as fast. Looks great and easy to install. Just make sure you have a 50 amp service for the hookup. Enjoy
Love the design
from Columbia, SC, United States
I am really enjoying the additional control of the induction cooktop. The kettle boils almost immediately. It is fabulous.
from Houston, TX
I love this cooktop - it's exactly what I wanted, and I am so pleased that the sales person told me how to use it to the best advantage. You need to use the cleaning products that are recommended, the types of pots and pans that work best. Mine is in pristine condition after about 6 months of use. And you use less energy - the cooktop heat is so precise that you can cook on a lower heat level. Also, I like the fact that it's produced in the USA.
Roomy and easy to clean!
from Paradise, CA
I have enjoyed this cooktop for over 2 years now. I love that it fits a large number of my pots and pans at one time. It is so easy to clean, no burners or knobs to get in the way. Stylish, convenient and durable. You can boil a pot of water in a flash and the burners cool down quickly when turned off. My favorite feature with a small child in the house is the control button that turns everything off when you are not using it. I have had a few issues with it - the computer components have gone completely out on it recently. The cooktop is a 2007 production, but I have only had it just over 2 years now. I would still recommend this product to a friend or family member. I would love to have all GE Profile appliances, I just can't afford them all on a small teacher salary.
Love the speed & sleek design, hard to keep clean
from Sterling, VA
I have only had this for a week but so far love the efficiency of induction technology compared to my old electric burners. My only gripe is that the glass dirties easily. I tried different solutions and discovered very hot water wiped off quickly does the best job, even better than the little bottle of cleaning fluid that came with it which leaves a film.
from Easley, SC
We are very pleased with the performance of our induction cook top. There were slight reservations regarding a new technology, (we were accustomed to gas cooking). After a most speedy pot of boiling water, we were hooked. The ease at which the cooking surface can be cleaned is a big plus. We would highly recommend this product to anyone.
always works great!
Love this cooktop and induction cooking in general. It's very easy to keep clean. So easy to cook with a consistent temperature. The only drawback is sometimes the induction causes it to make a humming sound when cooking. This usually is not a problem, but sometimes seems to be excessively loud. Also had to buy all new stainless pots and pans and sell our wedding Calphalon! was worth it though.
