My only complaint,,,,I wish that I had room for the 36 inch cooktop! First: The backlit knobs that let you know when a burner is on is not only a great safety feature, but, it looks neat too. Second: The Ultra Burner in the center, can boil water at an outstanding rate! it is BLAZING fast! Third: The Simmer feature of the back burner is SUPERIOR for cooking sauces and soups that need to be kept on a SLOW simmer for a longer period of time. Fourth: Clean up is as easy as using a spray bottle of WATER! No harsh chemicals needed! Simply spray on the water, and it wipes clean. It is the nicest, full feature Cook top that I have EVER owned -- and it replaced an older GE Profile Cooktop - this one has it beat HANDS DOWN!

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.

Knobs Break!! Cheaply made
from Winchester, VA, United States
Comments about GE Cafe 30" Stainless Steel Built-In Gas Cooktop:
I like how the stove cooks, but I am very displeased with the knobs. I have had to replace the knobs around 6-7 times. The bottom of the knob is made of plastic and it is not strong enough to handle the weight of the stainless steel (top) knob. For the price that I paid for this stove I'm wishing I would have bought another brand.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Very Nice Cooktop
from Georgia, United States
I was impressed how quickly the main buner heated large stock pots of water. Cleanup is a snap. Very easy to take the components apart for cleaning.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I wrote a review that 2 knobs cracked after purchasing this product. Soon after they sent me 2 new ones. I am very pleased they stood behind their product and love it otherwise!

Takes 30 min to boil water
from Portland, OR
We bought this cooktop several months ago and hated it because the grates sit very high over the burners, as a result cooking surfaces gets very little direct heat. A small pot of water would take 30 mins to boil. Not at all what we had in mind when we purchased it. Poor design. Very unhappy with product.
looks and works great
from Waverly N.Y.
We have had this for only a month, and it works great.Power burner boils water fast, and love the lock out feature.It also stainless looks great with the new granite counter top.
We have been using this for about a week, but am already happy with the purchase. It is easier to clean than the old glass top model it replaced, but the grates are heavy. Still learning how to use the burners efficiently. Using the control knob for the middle burner requires some practice before feeling safe. After using the griddle only once, we decided it is too small for most of our use. This stainless steel cooktop has given the kitchen an updated and professional appearance.
from Erie, PA
We remodeled the kitchen and I wanted a new cooktop. This cooktop is the so wonderful. The Center power burner is fantastic for those big pots that you want to get going quickly. It is so easy to clean and looks great all the time. So many compliments on it. Love the lock out feature and the lights for the burners so you know even from across the room if you forgot to turn off.
from Long Beach, NY
CONTINUALLY BURN MYSELF GRATES TO HIGH FROM THE FLAME LARGE BURNERS ARE BOTH IN THE FRONT SO IF YOU HAVE 2 LARGE PANS GOING AT SAME TIME HARD TO ACCESS THE PLASTIC KNOBS THAT BREAK WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF TO CLEAN AND PUT BACK ON
