Comments about GE Profile 29.875" Electric Cooktop - Black on Black:
We have had this cooktop for a few months as it replaced an electric cooktop with coils. This cooktop was easy to install and looks very nice. The elements heat up very fast and boil water faster than gas cooktops we have seen. We also like that the glass top only heats up in the area of the cooking elements and does not heat up a larger area. The exhaust fan housing is very large and difficult to hook up an exhaust vent. Expect that the exhaust system will take up more room in your bottom cabinet than older models. It is taking a while to find the correct dial settings to get the heat you want. Also, it seem a little odd that the dials start out at high when you first turn them on. The fan does this as well. The fan motor is very strong and we noticed with it on high, it is hard to add salt and pepper as the fan sucks it away. Although the glass surface looks very nice, it scratches easily and is hard to keep clean.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bought this cooktop a couple of months ago as part of a kitchen upgrade. Cooking functions/electronics are fine. But, the shiny, black glass surface shows every little drip, blemish, and mark, and I'm constantly having to clean it with the GE recommended product just to keep it looking decent. Redesign the surface material and you'll have a winner.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I feel fortunate to be the owner of my new appliance.

We moved into a home in the country and are updating the fixtures and appliances and so on, and we just installed our new cook top. Just wanted to tell you that I used to think that sliced bread was the neatest thing ever now I have to let you and anyone else know that this cook top is even better than THAT!!! It was the best decision we made so far in our DIY remodel.

This cooktop is extremely sensitive to cracking. I dropped a plastic cup on it and it shatterred at the edge and caused a huge crack. And the glass top (I have black) is extremely difficult to keep clean -- even with the specific cook top cleaners recommended. Plus the bottom right burner which is the larger one and used the most, seems to be very hot -- even on the lower/simmer settings.
Nice job G.E.

Not as good as my last GE cooktop

Downdraft has 3 levels, but still doesn't "pull" like my last GE downdraft. I didn't get the gas downdraft for that very reason. Reviews said it didn't pull strong enough. Also the "burners" seem to be very inconsistent. I have to turn one of them up to a higher number to get the right amount of heat while another burner will heat the same pan with the same food at a much lower number. My last GE cooktop had interchangeable griddle/grill/burners and was very consistent, even after 18 years! Sometime newer isn't better.
Looks beautiful - great features

I bought the cooktop several months ago to replace an old GE cooktop. It looks great and works well. It is a little more difficult to keep clean than the older one.
I replaced an existing downdraft .I am satisfied with the performance and features.
