I replaced a coil-burner cook top that had a built-in downdraft, so I needed a similar form factor. There were few choices but I'm happy with this one. It cooks hot compared to my last one, but that may say more about my old one than this one. Something I hadn't appreciated about the difference between coils and flat tops: coils do conform to your pan bottoms a bit to make better contact. Now I know which of my pans are warped. The complaints from other reviews about difficulty keeping it clean have some merit, but the cook top cleaning product that they include does work, so I can get it beautifully shiny. Some small scratches already but I guess that's inevitable. One complaint; the temperature markings are faint- they are non-intrusive when looking at the shiny top but hard to read when cooking. Also, I have to educate guests on how the knobs controls work and what the lights mean. (Watch guests or they may heat more surface than they realize). A one-time annoyance, we had to rebuild the connection from the downdraft to the outflow, which required some custom metal bending. Still, much less cost than getting a separate downdraft vent, and much less reengineering to make a separate vent fit my counter.

We have had this cooktop for a few months as it replaced an electric cooktop with coils. This cooktop was easy to install and looks very nice. The elements heat up very fast and boil water faster than gas cooktops we have seen. We also like that the glass top only heats up in the area of the cooking elements and does not heat up a larger area. The exhaust fan housing is very large and difficult to hook up an exhaust vent. Expect that the exhaust system will take up more room in your bottom cabinet than older models. It is taking a while to find the correct dial settings to get the heat you want. Also, it seem a little odd that the dials start out at high when you first turn them on. The fan does this as well. The fan motor is very strong and we noticed with it on high, it is hard to add salt and pepper as the fan sucks it away. Although the glass surface looks very nice, it scratches easily and is hard to keep clean.

Our 10 year old one shattered.
from Central, PA
This one was the same except for the on off switch for the cooktop. Install was quick and easy since we replaced using same model.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
from Louisville, KY, United States
unit works well. need to lower temp on lowest settings, including melt - difficult to maintain a simmer. difficult to keep clean. think a white and black background (speckled) would be easier to keep clean of spatters.

Works great! Love the easy clean up. Looks awesome!
from Newport News, VA, United States
The cooktop is beautiful but installing downdraft is a bit of a challenge. Old GE downdraft had round connection to duct this one is square.
It's good, a little hard to clean around nobs erea
By John TB
from Raleigh, NC, United States
I bought it to replace my old GE cooktop. It works really good. Powerful exhaust fan, warm up very quick. However, it's pretty hard to clean around the nobs area
Best Cook Top Ever
from Cary NC
Had product about three months and I could not be happier. It looks great, easy to install and above all it is the easiest cooktop to clean and to keep clean, mainly because of the clear surface. No Knobs to get in the way.
Great Radiant Cooktop
from DFW, TX
Upper end of radiant cooktops. Great features, good looks, quick heat. Possible alt to induction.
Not as good as older model
from St. Louis, MO, United States
1) surface scratches much easier than older models and is much harder to clean. 2) didn't just "fit" as advertised - had to upgrade electrical, rework venting and cut a bigger hole in countertop.
from Hurst, tx
Happy with my stove top but have trouble wth cleaning it. I like things to shine but have trouble with the smearing
