Comments about GE Cafe 36" Gas Cooktop - Stainless Steel:
Studied many different cooktops and reviews before choosing this one. The Cafe dos not disappoint and in the 2 months I've used it, has performed very well. Appreciate the distance between burners to fit different sized cookware.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My wife loves it!

We replace an electric cook top with this gas burning, could not be happier!
Attractive, but original knobs do not work
from Middleton, WI, United States
The cooktop looks nice but the burner knobs don't work. Not being able to turn the burners on and off seems like a fairly major product defect. Griddle top is awesome for making pancakes and grilled sandwiches. Distance between gas flame and pans seems too large, as low heat settings don't seem to be very useful.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Have been using this 4 months, and very happy with it - easy to clean, easy to check the flames, and no spills go into the gas vents due to good design. Like the blue lights and the lockable feature.
The knobs are cheap and break
from Nashville, TN, United States
We bought this and have had 2 knobs break. The shaft has a D shaped insert that connects to the stove. The shaft is plastic and normal use (turning the knob) over time causes the D coupling to break and the knob no longer functions. Initially I thought some one had over torqued the knob, but when the 2nd one broke in my hand I noticed the issue. The knob is quite heavy (metal) while the shaft is light plastic; it's just a poor design.

love the cafe look which has a different style that a lot of others and were looking for a low BTU burner after having an older cooktop, this is great.

Great appearance and controls. Power boil is terrific. The griddle is nice but only for a quick thrill: heat smoked sausage, sear veggies, a small breakfast- bacon and a few pancakes.

***2 year owner product review***
from Miami, FL, United States
We bought this cooktop 2 years ago, it was purchased for the looks and the fact we love cooking with gas. I've waited two years to review it, I wanted to give it an accurate rating. I have to agree with some reviews about the grates, they are definitely too high, still don't understand the design behind it, it would be more efficient and save you more on gas if they were lower to the burner, less heating time needed per pot/pan used. We love the griddle, it cooks great once it finally heats up. We love the middle power boil burner, it heats up fast and does not boil over, I love the simmer option, my sauces and chillies come out delicious, the fact there are 4 burner sizes is definitely a plus! Then there is the knobs. They look very nice but they are cheap plastic and rust in the dishwasher. The bottom piece that seals the knob to the cooktop fell off and now we have 3 useless knobs, I will have to order a new set after I finish this review, not looking forward to that. Cleaning it is a mission, don't use an abrasive sponge or you will end up with a scratched top, I scratched it on the very first cleaning. My suggestion? Don't let food dry up on the top, wipe immediately clean with a SOFT sponge. For tough stains, cover the burners with a bowl, spray easy off, wait a few hours then wipe clean. I use a stainless steel cleaner with a microfiber cloth to bring back it's shine. The actual burner parts all go into the dishwasher along with the grates and come out brand new. The griddle gets washed with hot water and a brush then reasoned with Crisco. The only reason why I would recommend the product is because we looked at several brands and GE was the only one that we liked with the griddle option, I love to make hashbrowns, pancakes and french toast Sunday mornings. It does take a few months to get to know your product especially it's performance with different types of cooking materials such as cast iron. But once you learn to use it, you will love the outcome. Fix the knobs, please!

I hate cooking on an electric cooktop so I remodeled my kitchen and added this GE 36" gas cooktop. I love it. Griddle does not get hot enough to do a good job on pancakes though.
Very nice product
