Comments about GE Profile 29.75" Electric Cooktop - Stainless Steel:
I have cooked on gas and conventional electric, and this is definitely a new experience. The old saying of "slaving over a hot stove" no longer exists with this unit. It is amazing how little heat is given off during cooking. The unit is easy to clean up after spills because the spills do not burn or stick to the cooktop unless it is under the pan, just wipe it off and you are done. The unit is very attractive, and I would recommend you buy this stainless steel trim model expecially if you have granite countertops. My only real complaint is not with GE but the manufacturers of the available cookware because some are not designing the size specifications of the magnetic base in accordance with cooktop manufacturers' specifications. For example, the large burner on this unit requires a minimum of 7" magnetic surface on the base of the pot/pan. On two of the major cookware brands on the market the base on their 10" frying pan and their 5 quart Dutch oven is 6 3/4" and therefore will not work on the large burner. Also, the medium burner requires 5 3/4 inch minimum base and the cookware's base is only 5 3/8 inches for their 2 quart pot. The 1 quart may actually be too small for the small burner. When you go shopping for pots and pans, be sure you have a magnet and a tape measure for the magnetic disc/surface. Once you have the correct pans/pots, you will be thrilled with the operation of this unit.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great temperature control
from NY, United States
This is our first induction cooktop. Love the temperature control that is available. Boils a full pot of water in no time!
so far, so good

just installed and used twice. Works just like I hoped it would. Like the LOCK and Timer.
GE INDUCTION COOKING IS AMAZING.
from Freetown, MA, United States
I did a great deal of research before purchasing an induction cooktop and am so glad I chose the GE! It fit PERFECTLY into our granite counter cut-out where our 20+year old GE electric smooth-top had been. Our old cooktop was working fine, but I had heard so many raves that I just knew I wanted induction and figured, at my age, why wait? It makes cooking so much fun - so fast and responsive - and gave me the opportunity to get all new cookware. From frying an egg to boiling a big pot of water for pasta to sauteing veal marsala, I am so happy with my choice.
Look and Works Great

I have been using the cook top now for 2 months. Honestly the best investment I have made on my recent kitchen remodel project!
Love this cooktop!

I'm new to induction cooking and this cooktop has made the transition painless.
Absolutely love this!

I remodeled my entire kitchen and added this oven. I love it!I
from Folsom, CA, United States
This was installed in September and I absolutely love it. This is replacing a 30 year old electric coil cooktop and it did take a little adjusting. I also bought new cookware, so figuring out temperatures and the speed that things heat up gave me a couple of surprises (all good!). It's easy to clean and just looks so nice in my updated kitchen. So far, it's all great!!!
good, but could be better
from St. Pete Beach, FL, United States
not too easy to clean specially since there is no "disarm" feature while you swipe over the keypads...which go crazy when you do that. also a slide feature would have helped when setting the warming of each set.
