The unit works really well and it is much improved from the older version of the same type of cooktop. I had a GE Profile before 10 years old and took a long time to cook.The only issue is how easy and visible (by being black) dirt can be seen.

We have had this cooktop for a few months as it replaced an electric cooktop with coils. This cooktop was easy to install and looks very nice. The elements heat up very fast and boil water faster than gas cooktops we have seen. We also like that the glass top only heats up in the area of the cooking elements and does not heat up a larger area. The exhaust fan housing is very large and difficult to hook up an exhaust vent. Expect that the exhaust system will take up more room in your bottom cabinet than older models. It is taking a while to find the correct dial settings to get the heat you want. Also, it seem a little odd that the dials start out at high when you first turn them on. The fan does this as well. The fan motor is very strong and we noticed with it on high, it is hard to add salt and pepper as the fan sucks it away. Although the glass surface looks very nice, it scratches easily and is hard to keep clean.

Exhaust fan and quick cook burners
from Slidell, LA
Comments about GE Profile 30" Black Downdraft Electric Cooktop:
The exhaust fan is great, the burners heat immediately and the double burner connection is terrific. I love the "hot burner" indicator.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this product. It get hot really fast. Easy to use and clean.
Black surface is a nightmare to clean
I purchased this in April of this year. The day it was installed was the last time I saw a flawless appliance. It looks sleek but it is a nightmare to clean. I spend 20-25 minutes EACH night trying to get swipe marks and incidental spots off of it. I use my smaller appliances whenever possible to avoid having to clean it. Go with grey or white. My old profile was a grey pebble surface and it did not always look like I forgot to clean it. If I could trade this in I would do so in a heartbeat. Love the burner layout etc. but HATE the black surface.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Really like the white - very easy to keep clean
The cooktop seems to take longer than my other cooktop to heat up. There is nothing in the brochure to indicate this.
Nice piece of equipment
from Hunterdon County, NJ
I purchased this to replace my last GE cook top. It looks sleek and very modern. I need the downdraft feature to exhaust cooking odor and steam and it works very well. I love the power boil and like that the burners light up red when in use.
from Jesup, Ga
It takes some time to get use to this stove top because it seems a lot hotter then other stove tops I have used in the past, but once you get used to it, you will love the features. It does a great job cooking and boiling water. Very nice stove top! I would recommend it for sure!
from Tallahassee, FL, United States
I switched brands; my old unit only lasted 8 years and the replacement was $300 more than the GE. It also did not have the "bridge" feature on one side that the GE has.
Great features. Heats unstantly
from Rockwall, TX, United States
Installed during recent remodel. Very sleek and looks great
from Lafayette, LA, United States
In an attempt to be sleek as a star ship, the control settings were made so subdued as to be unreadable. But, they're analog so settings are only an approximation anyway.
Replaced a Jenn-Aire
from San Joaquin Valley, CA
I installed this a couple of months ago and am very happy with it. It dropped right in the cut out which had a Jenn-Aire with not problem. Hooking up was easy, although the exhaust takes up a lot more room in the cabinet than the Jenn-Aire., but nothing is perfect. It heats immediately and evenly. The surface is a little hard to keep clean and some foods seem to stick more than others, but that is not a big problem. My wife is happy and that is the important thing.
