Comments about GE Cafe 30" Gas Cooktop - Stainless Steel:
Just installed, replacing a Thermidor which was impossible to clean. This GE cafe cooktop changes the whole look of my kitchen. Can't wait for my GE cafe convection microwave to be installed. I'll update you on the ease of cleaning this stainless steel appliance in several months. Stay tuned!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Does a great job
from Iowa, United States
Over all I really like this product. The one down fall I do have is I wish I would have considered how high it would stick-up from the counter. This only is a problem because I put my microwave above it.

So reliable and sturdy!!!

Bought it for my new home 6 months ago and since then we've been using it non stop! The quality is unsurpassed! But that's what GE is all about!

I bought the cooktop and it has a problem with stain on the burners base and cover
Variety of features makes it work
from Logan, UT, United States
I've had this cooktop for a few months now and like the cast iron pieces above the burners and the powerboil option that has a very small simmer section within it. Great variety. The gas flames are farther away from the bottom of pots than on other gas cooktops I've used and it takes quite a while to get a pot of water to boil for pasta or potatoes, but other than that it has been great.
Great 30" Gas Cooktop-Cafe Series
from Fishers, IN, United States
We bought this cooktop about a year ago and writing this review in 2015. We read most of the reviews before we purchased the cooktop and was a bit skeptical, especially about the concerns over the "plastic knobs and stems", the grate height and taking a long time to boil water and subsequent escape of heat, and finally paint/writing coming off when cleaned. First, we absolutely love this cooktop. For a 30 inch cooktop it has a lot of surface for pots/pans. Keep in mind that it is a 30 inch surface that GE has maximized; not all pots/pans will fit at once. The lock/unlock feature is one of the reasons we bought it as we have little children who can be curous. When locked, their is a light that illuminates and if someone tries to turn on a burner there is a buzzer sound that activates and can easily heard throughout the house. The up front controls is another reason we purchased this cooktop as most offer them in the middle or on the right or left side. The control placement on this cooktop let you control the heat with having to reach a across or near the heated grates. We have not encourted any issues with knobs or stem and we have had this cooktop for about a year. The knobs snuggly fit the stem but with constant pressure straight up we are able to remove them for cleaning. The cooktop is easily cleaned and cleans up well! I was very careful to read the entire owner's manual to ensure I maintained this cooktop properly. I did not want to scratch or ruin the surface by using an abrasive cleaner or an improper pad/rag/brush. We typically do not have any problems with cleaning the cooktop with using just a damp cloth. For tougher messes we use a damp cloth with dish soap. The only issue we have with cooktop is does take a bit longer to boil water when using a burner other than the center burner. The center burner will boil water quickly! The solution to boil water on another burner is to first get the water boiling using the center burner and when the water starts to form bubbles, turn on an outside burner and put the pot over it. The one thing we will do is remove the cabinet that over the cooktop. With the cooktop having commercial style grates, the cabinet over the cooktop looks like it is trying to suffocate it! It will look much nicer once the cabinet is removed and a hood is installed. I hope this review helps out!
Grate are too far from the burner
from Houston, TX, United States
I Cannot get enough heat from burners--takes forever to get to boiling point. the grates on top are to far from burner and it loses the heat before reaching the pot. Very disappointing. GE should have an alternative grate where the height of the burner and grate is not too far and it would not lose the heat.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Improved over older midel
from Rochester, NY, United States
So far...so good! Had to replaced the older moder GE model. Disappointed it only lasted 6 years..
Great feature.. Seems like wasting gas :(
from Atlanta, GA
The height of grill seems to be more that required. the flame doesn't really touch the pot. Takes longer to cook.. There is no option to change the grill. Looks nice.. Child lock is a good feature.
