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.

GE Cafe Series - CGP350SETSS
from Cincinnati, OH, United States
Very happy with the cooktop. It looks great and works great. I especially like the high heat burner in the middle that boils liquids so quickly and then the temperature can be adjusted to a simmer to continue cooking soups, etc.

I did a lot of research before purchasing the GE Cafe range top. My work paid off. I am extremely satisfied with the appearance and performance
Why did I wait so long!
from Pittsburgh, PA, United States
I adore this stove top! Cooking on it is a breeze! You are able to control the heat to the exact temp with these burners. I never knew how wonderful it is to cook with a professional-like stove. A world of difference! Worth every penny as far as I am concerned!

Beautiful and Functional
from Aurora, CO, United States
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.
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!

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.
