Plenty of room to cook multiple dishes

By Marti19

Comments about GE Profile 36" Gas Cooktop - Stainless Steel:

This unit came pre-installed in our new construction home. I love it! The temperature seems accurate and easy to controll. The stainless surface is easy to keep clean.


Nice Range, Tough to clean

Comments about GE Profile 36" Gas Cooktop - Stainless Steel:

I like it, just hard keeping it clean. Smudges, etc



By nonnimacaroni

Comments about GE Profile 36" Gas Cooktop - Stainless Steel:

Cooktop has good interchangeable features, the griddle and grill, that are terrific accessories. It looks great and works well. I find it difficult to keep the drip pans clean around the gas burners. They have burnt on stains that can't be removed.


It works well.

Comments about GE Profile 36" Gas Cooktop - Stainless Steel:

It works fine without any problem. We got the product through builder installation in a new home.


Large cooking area

By srleija

Comments about GE Profile 36" Gas Cooktop - Stainless Steel:

I upgraded from a 4 burner to a 5 burner in my remodel, this stovetop is great, easy to clean, and has the room to accommodate my larger pans simultaneously.


Terrible Design

By Urvashi

from Leesburg, VA, United States

Comments about GE Profile 36" Gas Cooktop - Stainless Steel:

It takes forever to cook on this burner. The burner grill is so high that it takes more than double time to heat up the utensil.Cleaning is another big issue. With the huge holes between the burner and plate, a lot of food goes down and it can't be cleaned unless you actually unscrew the whole top plate.


good looking cooktop

Great Product AND It Fits My Space!

By DeniseinPaso

from Paso Robles, CA, United States

Comments about GE Profile 36" Gas Cooktop - Stainless Steel:

We had to replace a 30+ year old stainless steel cook top. It was top of the line when new, but the manufacturer was bought out years ago, and it was an odd size, between 30 and 36 inches. Because of drawers and cabinets beneath the counter on each side, we had minimal space to work with to accommodate a wider cook top. We wanted a 36-inch, and this GE model was one of the few cook tops that would fit without major cabinet renovations. We are extremely pleased with the GE Profile PGP976SETSS. It looks great and performs superbly. We love the big, 17,000 burner, which really heats up a big pot or kettle in a hurry, and we also are impressed with the tiny little flame that is possible on the simmer burner. Of course, even the simmer burner, when placed on high, probably provides more heat than the old cook top we replaced. I like the ability to use different sized burners for different purposes. It is also very convenient to be able to slide pots all over the surface grates. A nice feature is the little light behind the knob when the burner is turned on. We noticed how useful that is when we had one of the burners turned down so low it was difficult to see the flame. Without the behind-the-knob indicator, we might have forgotten the burner was on at all. Having just cleaned the area under the top of my old cook top, which was made in the days before sealed burners, I appreciate how much easier it is to keep this unit clean. I let some pasta water get a little over eager, and it spilled over. Later, after dinner, I cleaned it up so the surface looks good as new. Last night, I had droplets of oil splatter the stainless steel surface, and they cleaned up easily as well. The nice man who installed the cook top had advised me to spray the surface with a good quality stainless steel cleaner before using it, sort of like "seasoning" a cast iron skillet, to make future clean ups easier. That turned out to be excellent advice. My husband and I both love this cook top. Although it was installed only recently -- July 2 -- we have used it quite a lot already. We recommend it highly.

Good heat distribution. Easy to clean. Heavy grates. Great looking. Knobs substantial. Only con is that it scratches easily. Proud to have it in my home

Comments about GE Profile 36" Gas Cooktop - Stainless Steel:

Matches the other Profile appliances in the house. The stainless steel does not rust and the plastic is nice. Robust hinges as well.
