We bought this cooktop to replace an older gas cooktop when we put in granite countertops. We got matching electric double ovens at the same time. The counter guys cut the opening according to the installation instructions. I removed the old cooktop and installed the new one myself. The installation instructions are easy to follow and not difficult at all. The old cooktop had pilot lights and this one uses electronic ignition. This is safer and of course does not produce any heat unless cooking. It does require an electrical outlet. I was able to run the line from a nearby service panel. If you do not have an outlet nearby, an electrician should be able to do this for you. I also had to extend a gas line to the right side of the cabinet. The old cooktop connected on the left side. A plumber can do this for you if your connection is not in the proper location. The location of the electrical and gas connections are well illustrated in the installation documents sent with the cooktop. I got the instructions online before the cooktop was delivered so that all of the cabinet work, gas and electrical connections were in place before the cooktop arrived. The installation then was very quick. The cooktop worked well. The largest burner can really put out the heat for large pots. The top is easy to clean if there are any spills. We like the griddle that replaces the grill over the two burners on the left side. The grill and griddle are both heavy for my wife. The griddle works well for meats, sandwiches, tortillas, French toast. The surface slopes slightly to allow grease to drain, but this makes cooking pancakes or eggs more difficult, because they run into the drain. Overall we like the cooktop. It looks very nice and will handle any of you cooking requirements.

I can not recommend this cook top. The knobs say they are removable, but I cant get them off. The grates are so high off the burner you have to cook everything on high and if you want to brown something, you have to put it on the power boiler. The boiler would be great, if it wasn't for the grate height. It takes longer to boil and cook then with my old electric. The griddle is cool for pancakes and french toast, but you can only get one batch of bacon done before the reservoir fills up with grease.

Great burners and looks great.

Comments about GE 36" Black Built-In Gas Cooktop:
Had this installed about a week ago and my wife is extremely happy with this cooktop unit. Looks sharp and is very easy to clean. Burner grates fit right into the dishwasher and wiping around the burners is great because the igniter is not sticking out, for your rag to get caught on.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

hard to clean due to weight of the grills
Middle burner works intermittently but over all its pretty dependable sturdy and fine looking. Need to to make the burner much lighter particularly for ladies or the elderly.

This is a great cooktop. Love the design. Works really well, could cook multiple things in multiple ways, also works really well for indoor grilling :)

I have been using this for 6 months now without issue. I cook in more than I eat out but not a chef. I love the variation in heat from large burner to small. I finally picked something correct!

We have this cooktop in our new home, and as a family that cooks daily, we just love this. The number of burners, the settings, and options -

I love the griddle, and the LED lights on the bottom of the knobs that indicate they are on.

We purchased the Cafe' to replace a 10 year-old gas cook top installed by the builder, wanting to improve appearance and upgrade performance. It appears we accomplished both. The installation was a simple remove and replace operation requiring only minor cutting into the Corian corners of the original opening to accommodate the Cafe'. (Install took about two hours from start to finish and clean-up; easy-to-follow directions for my basic DIY mind.) My wife likes the blue back-lighted "on" indication reminders, the heavier grates, more surface room on the grates, and the unit's versatility in managing cooking temperatures. The higher grate level is noticeable, but it doesn't take long to get accustomed to working a little higher. The Cafe cleaned up easily after a heavy duty cooking session. On the down side, use caution when cleaning the grates - the cast iron on ours had sharp flakes and burrs on the edges which will ruin your towels and could give you a sharp cut if you catch them the wrong way. I spent a few minutes checking each grate and lightly filing the edges to make them safer. My only other concern is that the painted knob markings might begin to disappear after a few cleanings - I would prefer etched or stamped markings versus painted. I also will be interested to see how well the knobs and knob stems withstand normal wear. All in all, after five days of use, we really like it. If it weren't for the sharp edges on the grates, I would have rated it 5 stars. Updates to follow.
