Replaced an older, chipped GE profile 36 inch cook top (with knobs). Digital controls are nice, just a solid radiant type heating cook top. Induction models simply too expensive for personal use of cook top. Other one lasted many years, hopefully this one is same or near same quality.

This is a replacement cook top for a previous G.E. Monogram glass cook top we had for twenty one years. It had conventional control knobs & they we're always part of the cleaning regime. This unit has touch controls & presents a clean aesthetic surface, and is easier to clean as hoped. The major drawback is difficulty in seeing the touch controls in reduced light. It's apparent G.E. designed the unit to hide the controls which is a little too much for us. Our second issue with the controls is the nominal heat setting for the "plus" & "minus" . After touching the desired burner to "on", if you select the minus, it is at is lowest setting of "1" & you have to repeatedly touch the "plus" to get to a medium setting, for example. If you first touch "plus" it is on the highest setting and you have to again repeatedly touch the "minus" to lower the setting. To us, it was much easier with the older unit which had twist knobs which you quickly set in an instant. When the unit is on and you wipe the unit to remove a spill, it will easily tun off or adjust the heat setting. Very annoying. The unit has a lock for the controls, which keeps the burners from tuning on. It won't keep a burner on at a particular setting. The glass cook top already has a scratch. Our previous glass top had no scratches to the day we replaced the unit. I'm concerned about this units glass durability. The unit comes with an adhesive foam strip that is to be placed around the underside edge, prior to installation, as a cushioning to rest on the counter. The adhesive stickiness is almost non existent. At each attempt to install the unit, the foam strip would detach at some point. With finally getting a reasonable fit, the foam does not compress as I envisioned. There is a 1/8" exposure of foam which I fear will be a cleaning issue as time progresses. Where the foam loosened, & did not stick to the edge, there is a set back leaving a gap. The burners heat up quickly, and we feel they can bring water to boil faster than our previous unit. Might be our imagination, but no way to test now. The burners also will cycle off and come back on in what must be a temperature maintenance design. We don't recall our other unit doing this type of cycle.

nice flat surface
from Portland, OR, United States
installed it to replace my old one that got cracked - the flat surface is nice. the only downside is the surface might not be as tough (non-scratch-able) as my old one

Great features, looks great.
from Syracuse, NY
I've used this for 6months and love everything about it. 5 burners are perfect, with the varried levels on 2 of the burners it is like having extra burners. The warmer is fantastic.
from Sun Lakes, AZ
I bought this unit last month and have been very pleased with it. When I turn it on, it heats instantly, and when I turn it off, it quickly cools off unlike my older unit I replaced.

So far I like it. I think it needs to come with more information on using the cooktop
