We had to replace a 30+ year old stainless steel cook top. It was top of the line when new, but the manufacturer was bought out years ago, and it was an odd size, between 30 and 36 inches. Because of drawers and cabinets beneath the counter on each side, we had minimal space to work with to accommodate a wider cook top. We wanted a 36-inch, and this GE model was one of the few cook tops that would fit without major cabinet renovations. We are extremely pleased with the GE Profile PGP976SETSS. It looks great and performs superbly. We love the big, 17,000 burner, which really heats up a big pot or kettle in a hurry, and we also are impressed with the tiny little flame that is possible on the simmer burner. Of course, even the simmer burner, when placed on high, probably provides more heat than the old cook top we replaced. I like the ability to use different sized burners for different purposes. It is also very convenient to be able to slide pots all over the surface grates. A nice feature is the little light behind the knob when the burner is turned on. We noticed how useful that is when we had one of the burners turned down so low it was difficult to see the flame. Without the behind-the-knob indicator, we might have forgotten the burner was on at all. Having just cleaned the area under the top of my old cook top, which was made in the days before sealed burners, I appreciate how much easier it is to keep this unit clean. I let some pasta water get a little over eager, and it spilled over. Later, after dinner, I cleaned it up so the surface looks good as new. Last night, I had droplets of oil splatter the stainless steel surface, and they cleaned up easily as well. The nice man who installed the cook top had advised me to spray the surface with a good quality stainless steel cleaner before using it, sort of like "seasoning" a cast iron skillet, to make future clean ups easier. That turned out to be excellent advice. My husband and I both love this cook top. Although it was installed only recently -- July 2 -- we have used it quite a lot already. We recommend it highly.

This cooktop was supossed to be an upgrade in our new home and is useless.... It takes forever to cook anything on the side burners. The only one that works is the middle one. The grates are to high for the four side burners. Someone at GE should try to cook an egg in a regular T-Fal pan and will see that it takes forever to heat and cook on a regular pan. The pan never gets hot enough. It only wastes gas and time. I cannot believe the failure in the design. What is the point of having a 5 burner cooktop and only use the middle one? Maybe They put the high grates to accomodate the big burner and forgot about the other four. I already called my builder and will ask for a replacement if they cannot fix the problem. So dissapointed the cooktop looks great but is useless unless they replace the grates or adjust the intensity of the flames. I wrote to GE I hope they can help me. Many reviews complain about the same thing.

Comments about GE Profile 36" Stainless Steel Built-In Gas Cooktop:
We have had the stovetop for about 6 months. It has a large spill area under the burners, much larger than the last generation. The continuous grate is very useful. The burners adjust well. We got the stainless steel version and it is hard to see the flame or judge its size. A burner pilot light would be helpful as I have left burners on sine it's hard to see the flame. The metal knobs are a big improvement. We washed the grates in the dishwasher-very nice. Overall this is a very cost effective appliance.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about GE 36" Stainless Built-In Gas Cooktop:
My husband's hobby is Chinese cooking, and I was looking for a cooktop with a power burner for the wok. This model has a 20,000 BTU burner right in the middle and gives the heat required for this kind of cooking. There is a simmer burner for low heat cooking---good for soups. Controls are front and center, but there is a child lock.
Service and delivery comments:
We originally thought the counter would have to be shaved to accommodate the cooktop, but it fit perfectly, and the charge for this was refunded to me. Installation was fast and professional.

Stellar design, great features
from Manalapan, NJ, United States
We purchased this to replace our previous GE Prolfile stove top which is 14 years old. My how times have changed. I can't say enough good things, from the design to performance.
Beautiful Gas Range
from Surprise, AZ, United States
Upgraded the appliances in my home with this unit. One side you can replace with a griddle, but haven't had great success with controlling the heat to the right level. The rest of the stove top is VERY easy to wipe down. Simply remove the grates and wipe it down.

New home purchased 6 months ago. We had the option of selecting GE appliances from the builder. We selected this item solely on the design and look. It does look great. ISSUE - power boil is a joke ISSUE - grate is too high from flame We have been told by repair people that this is a common complaint by people.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
