I bought this cooktop to replace another glass top electric cooktop that was at least 20 years old. The cooktop was installed in a Corian countertop and I found that the hole size was too small for most cooktops by other manufacturers, and I did not want to risk cracking the countertop by having a bigger hole cut out. So I was essentially limited to GE cooktops. But I was glad to find that there were various GE cooktops that had high power output and were priced reasonably. I also was glad that the GE cooktops were not too deep since I wanted to continue to use the drawer that is under the cooktop. Many of the other brands would have forced us to stop using that drawer. Our old cooktop had two "quartz halogen" burners that we liked for their immediate full on capability, but I found that no manufacturer seems to make that type of electric burner now. We've found that the ribbon burners of our new cooktop, while not quite "instant-on" like the halogen burners still heat up in just seconds. I wanted a good "power boil" feature so that we wouldn't have to wait around to boil a large pot of water for pasta or potatoes. The "power boil" dual-size burner of our new cooktop does a great job of boiling quickly when the full larger-size setting it used with a big pot. In fact, the "high" setting of all of the burners is so hot that my husband keeps burning the food that he cooks because he is not used to the higher total power compared to our old cooktop. My husband likes to cook pancakes with an old family recipe, so I thought that he would enjoy having the "bridge element" to enable him to use a large griddle and make lots of pancakes at once. I found a good non-stick griddle pan with a flat bottom and my husband found that the bridge element worked well for that. Some reviewers complain that glass tops are hard to clean. The situation is really just that the shiny smooth black glass surface shows grease spatters and water spots more easily than other surfaces. These people were actually just used to leaving their old non-glass cooktops more dirty. On the other hand, the smooth top means that there is no space under the burners to collect spills, so wiping it down is in that way "easier" than with traditional uncovered electric burners. The glass top polishes up nicely using the cleaner that it came with, but it does take a lot of rubbing in the case of burnt-on spills.

from Cincinnati, ohio
I bought this to replace my old ge cooktop. Easy to use, sleek new look and like the ability to change the burner size with a turn of the knob. I no longer have small children but like the lock feature.
Glad I bought it.

The burners are very good and heat up quickly. It is easy to install - just drop it in and plug it in. The 220 plug was a 3 wire and most plug outlets for 220 are 4 wire. Instructions did not address that issue.
Cooks well but needs lots of care
from St. Paul MN
I bought this cooktop 4 months ago. It is good for cooking and offers the right spectrum of burner sizes. My main complaint is that I purchased black for its nice look with my countertops, but I feel like I have to treat it with kid gloves. Even when water splashes over during cooking it makes a mess that must be cleaned up with the special ceramic cleaner, and it needs to be done after each meal so that the marks don't become permanent. I would probably buy black again, as there aren't any other nice looking options. But it's a lot of work to keep it looking good.

Elegant looking cooktop!
from Upper Michigan
I've had the unit for two months and am very, very pleased with it! The elements heat exceptionally fast, there is plenty of surface room for several pans, and love the bridging unit for griddle use. It's a little effort to keep the surface gleaming, but well worth it - it is beautiful in my counter top. I love it!

It's a great stove top. I like the child safety lock it has so little fingers can't accidentally turn the stove on. When you've got toddlers, you can't be too careful.

We bought this model 3 months ago and it's amazing! Easy to clean and it works well. I recommend it.
