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.

The review title refers to a freshly detailed black car...stunning until the first dust settles. The unit is impressive and the stainless steel rim prevents the kind of edge damage that an errant bowl or jar can inflict on ceramics. BUT, IT IS A REAL CHORE TO CLEAN. Prepare to invest in a single edge razor blade scraper, a large bottle of the sample cleaner included with the unit, cleaning pads, lots of paper towels and a real workout of rubbing...and rubbing. And just when you think it's streak-free, more buffing and rubbing...but is looks great until someone touches it!

No more white ?!
from Bellevue, WA, United States
Comments about GE Profile 30" Built-In CleanDesign Black Electric Cooktop:
When I ordered my cooktop I was disappointed to hear that GE was discontinuing the white. The local warehouse only had 2 available. Not everyone wants to have a large black rectangle on a whitish counter.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Lovin' this new cooktop
from NC, United States
This was a replacement for another GE glass cooktop that we had for 20+ years. Are looking forward to the same reliable service from this new cooktop that we had from the old.
Good product so far,
from MS, United States
Our new stovetop looks great! We have only used it for 4 days but it works great so far.
from California, United States
The cooking range works well and is quite satisfactory. The only issue I have is that it is hard to keep clean. Spills do not wipe off easily; some require scrubbing as well as scraping.
Still love GE products!
from Chico, CA, United States
Have always loved GE products and this is no exception. Goes beautiful in my island. Works awesome!
The dual surface element well worth extra money. It heats the entire surface of my large skillets, making excellent browning. I have no negatives to say about the cooktop. Very pleased with the product.
from Puerto Rico
