Wanted a flat cooktop to replace my old coil-type. This dropped right into the existing counter opening and was a breeze to hook up. Got the features I wanted (Power Boil, Melt settings) and I really like the individual LEDs that tell you which burner is hot after you turn them off. Overall a great unit at a reasonable price. Only two cons so far: The white lettering against the black surface should be brighter for easier reading. And you must be VERY careful with pots and pans as the scratch resistant surface is not that resistant. Maybe that's why this model is not that expensive?

1) About the true-fit guarantee: not quite. We wanted to upgrade our cooktop and, after hesitating with a different brand, we decided to go with another GE product because of their size-match guarantee. Well, our previous GE cooktop was slightly rounded around the bottom unlike this cooktop so it did not fit our countertop. What we thought would be a 30 minute install during our children's nap turned into a two-hour drilling and filing nightmare while juggling our young kids who of course wanted to watch what was happening. 2) About the on light: weirdly always on. There is a light that stays constantly on while the cooktop is connected to electricity (no matter if the burners are hot or not). Which is always, if you install it following the installation instructions. People entering my kitchen keep asking me if I left one of the burners on. Great if you want to pass as a forgetful person in front of your friends! 3) About the color: beware of the glare. I have a vent and light above this cooktop, but I can hardly see better when I turn the light on because of the glare in the glass surface (my previous cooktop was stainless steel between the burners, I never had this issue). 4) About the performance: just okay. Yes, it works fine. I am not impressed by the 'power boil' option, it takes just as long as with my previous GE cooktop.

My first big appliance purchase ever.
We have had this cook top for almost 2 months now; its great! It is at least 30 years newer than what was there before (we just bought our first house!). The old one took forever if we were boiling a big pot for spaghetti - this new cook top has this amazing Power Boil option and it is ahhmaayzing! The other burners heat up quickly too just not Power Boil quick. It cleans easily it even came with a smaller bottle of cleaner. Also it was super super easy to install. We had it delivered but we removed the old one and installed this in roughly 45 minutes. Just buy it.

Bought our stove top a couple of months ago and are very happy with how well it cooks. It heats quickly for faster cooking. We also appreciate the cleaning tools and cleaner that comes with the product.
This is my first time having a smooth surface cooktop so can't compare to others but seems to have even cooking just seems like I have to set to higher settings than my old electric stovetop.

So far, easy installation, fit perfectly into the old GE stovetop in the countertop, and looks sharp.

The cooktop cooks evenly and the power boil works very well. Haven't needed the melt or hold warm features yet. Great cooktop. Highly recommend.
