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.

Comments about GE 36" Black Built-In Gas Cooktop:
I researched this cooktop for a year before buying, and after installation and turning on, I knew I made the right choice. The men who installed the cooktop were impressed also, pointing out the difference between mine and others they have worked on. So far I am very pleased.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best Cooktop I Have Owned
from Denver County, CO, United States
I had my GE Cafe Cooktop installed a couple of months ago and it's the best cooktop I have owned. Because it has a higher BTU output than most this cooktop cooks quickly whether I am using the power boil for pasta or the simmer for sauces or keeping dishes warm. It is easy to clean, easy to use and the lock feature is a great safety device. I particularly like the blue light which lights up the cooktop dial I am using so that even across the room, I can tell if I have left a burner on very low. I did a lot of research before buying and I am extremely happy with this product.

I recently purchased this device. I installed it myself. The instructions were easy to follow and the installation was simple. The appliance works great, exceeding my expectations.

Performs exactly as expected and to a high level. Large boil burner works great. Lock feature is nice.
Works great; love the middle element!

Love this stove top grill. The griddle element in the middle heats up quickly!
Good cooktop, only issue I see is cooking pot is bit far from flame.

Best cooktop around. Works great, only thing is if you boil over you have to let the igniters dry out before they will work but hasn't been a big deal.

We bought this product a year ago and while we are happy with the stove, the parts are poorly made. We have had to replace the knobs for the second time now. the base of the knob keeps cracking and they are "plastic like".
