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.

Comments about GE Profile 30" Black Downdraft Electric Cooktop:
I just purchase this cooktop about a month ago and installed it about three weeks ago. I am disappointed with what I noticed. I spent a lot of time making sure that I had the right cooktop which would match the air duct system with that of the JenAir. The GE cooktop does not have an automatic feature that allows the air vent air system to come on when you turn on any of the burners. GE has a manual system. The glass surface tends to scratch easily smears easily. I don't know why it happens. It makes it hard to clean. The burners do put out a lot of heat. Lastly, it is very hard to read knob position. It would have nice to have the dial number area light up, rather than having the same color as the cooktop surface.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Nice looking cooktop

We have been using this cooktop for a few days and we really like it. We had an older cooktop before but this one is so modern and easy to use.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Came with the house and after 20 years one of the burners died and decided to replace whole unit. Great reliability.

Sleek Sexy Intuitive
from Frederick, MD, United States
We researched every cooktop before we determined which one to purchase. We are thrilled with this one. It is just beautiful...sleek on the countertop......sexy in the kitchen....and Intuitive to use. My husband and I love the 5 burners.....the grill burner setup with linking two burners together...and NO knobs to get dirty.

I am very happy with the cook top. However, it is difficult to use in low light. The dials are not illuminated and are difficult to see the settings. Otherwise the fan is powerful and quiet.
Easy Trouble free replacement for my Jenn-Aire

Please note that I had to by a separate item to convert the rectangular vent from the cooktop to the 5 in vent I had in my home. My only complaint is that it needs to be cleaned constantly since the gloss black reveals all. I wish they had speckled the top with grey as with other models which hide the dirt better.

Love the cook top, with the controls all together, that includes the downdraft exhaust.
So far so good!

I've only owned this for a short time but love the upgrade from the previous GE that had knobs. It's a much cleaner look with more power and functionality. Hopefully there will be no issues going forward but love it so far.
nice sleek look
from Germantown, TN, United States
Only been using the cooktop about 2 months. Love the way it heats and cooks evenly. My only complaint is that it is hard to keep clean. It takes too long to cool down before cooktop can be cleaned. When cleaned with just a mild cloth and water, it streaks. Usually needs to be cleaned with Ceramabryte or a soft cloth and windex
