Very attractive unit. This is replacing a basic black GE gas cooktop that came with the house. I installed myself and that was very straightforward. I like that the buttons are located front/center, but I can see from other reviewers that they feel this sometimes causes issues when larger pots on the front burners. Has not been an issue for me. With 5 burners, it is a lttle difficult to have a few larger pots or skillets on the cooktop...do not recall this being an issue with my older 4-burner. Guess this is to be expected when you squeeze a 5th burner into the same real estate. I like the blue background on the knob when burner running...on my last cooktop there were times when a few hours later I discovered burner was still on simmer. The knobs could have a more positive snap to them when they do hit the off position...there have been times when burner is off but knob not fully turned off,so blue light still on. Burners do seem a little less efficient that what I had on my older unit. Not sure is this is due to height of grates as others are mentioning or just lower powered burners since there are 5 now instead of 4. Only notice this when browning ground meat on front burners. Stainless surface much easier to clean from the black one i had previously...just wipe with a sponge. I do use some stainless cleaner every now and then to polish it up.

I am SO disappointed. Moved into our new house, first thing was replacing electric cooktop with gas cooktop. . . figured going with GE and spending a lot of money was a safe bet. Such a great look, great features with the power boil, griddle, etc. Not so. Turns out the ONLY way to boil water (steam veggies, etc) is to use the center power boil. Tonight I had 3 different sized pans on 3 different outer burners, all set at the highest possible heat setting and none of them were boiling after SEVENTEEN minutes (then I ran out of time to watch the 'cooktop' try to boil water#. The flames do not go high enough to even boil a pan of warm water. . . We've had this for less than a week. I will be calling the local appliance store where we purchased it, hoping there is some way to adjust the flame height, #if so, I will kindly update this and my rating#. If not, we better be able to return it!!! I am SO disappointed in this product.

Beautiful and Functional

Comments about GE Cafe 30" Stainless Steel Built-In Gas Cooktop:
My wife and I purchased this cooktop when we upgraded from electric to gas. We wanted a five burner unit, but at 30 inches, it was hard to find a functional unit. When we found the GE CafÃ©, it was just what we were looking for. The center burner is a "quick boil" and we use it frequently. We are happy with the look and the functionality of the unit.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Loves the new cooktop
from Williamsburg, VA, United States
Ordered for our new home. Have had the GE Monogram products for the past 10 years. The new Cafe series is more than up to the task. Love it!
from Houston, TX, United States
Really like how this cooktop looks and works. Heats fast and evenly
Easy to Use and Easy to Clean
from New Jersey, United States
I have been cooking on my CafÃ© Cooktop for about ten months. I can't imagine any feature that could be added that could possibly make it better.
from Cedar Rapids, IA, United States
Sharp looking cooktop. I would have liked the grates to be closer to the burners. If this is a replacement coooktop fr a older unit make sure you measure twice. The older cooktops had larger cutouts.
Takes too long
from Rocklin, CA, United States
Heating takes too long, grates too far apart to easily balance small pots like espresso pots, and gap between flame and pot is huge
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Phenomenal Cook Top
from Austin, TX, United States
We bought this cook top to replace a 9 year old GE Profile cooktop during a kitchen remodeling effort. This cooktop is really incredible and we especially love the middle burner for boiling water. I am amazed at how easily and quickly the burners ignite. In our old house we had a 5 year old GE cooktop but it took maneuvering the burner controls to get the burners to ignite - nothing like this one!

I purchased the GE Cafe Series Gas cooktop two months ago and have enjoyed using it.
GE Cafe Cooktop Rave
from Shakopee, MN
So glad I purchased this model. Works great in the space and I love having five burners with entertaining. Easy to clean and looks amazing. Got many compliments.
More cooking time
from Dallas, TX, United States
Though the burners are of higher BTU, it is taking more cooking time than my old GE gas cooktop because the grills are sitting higher on the flame making the distance between the flame and the bottom of the utensil more. This is also causing another headache. The handle of my OTC microwave is getting heated up - which I never experienced with my old cooktop. GE should have thought of these issues when the designed this.
