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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It works well.
It works fine without any problem. We got the product through builder installation in a new home.
Large cooking area
from Spring, TX, United States
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.

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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great Product AND It Fits My Space!
from Paso Robles, CA, United States
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.
cooks better than I do
from Goodyear, AZ, United States
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
I could not have designed a better fridge myself.
from Houston, TX, United States
Matches the other Profile appliances in the house. The stainless steel does not rust and the plastic is nice. Robust hinges as well.

Useless side burners....sooo dissapointed!!
from Katy, TX, United States
This cooktop was supossed to be an upgrade in our new home and is useless.... It takes forever to cook anything on the side burners. The only one that works is the middle one. The grates are to high for the four side burners. Someone at GE should try to cook an egg in a regular T-Fal pan and will see that it takes forever to heat and cook on a regular pan. The pan never gets hot enough. It only wastes gas and time. I cannot believe the failure in the design. What is the point of having a 5 burner cooktop and only use the middle one? Maybe They put the high grates to accomodate the big burner and forgot about the other four. I already called my builder and will ask for a replacement if they cannot fix the problem. So dissapointed the cooktop looks great but is useless unless they replace the grates or adjust the intensity of the flames. I wrote to GE I hope they can help me. Many reviews complain about the same thing.
from Trinidad and Tobago
imported full GE profile range for kitchen upgrade in Caribbean....inclusive PGP990 cooktop. Utilised pro for set up and conversion to LPG. Flames on right module burn with yellow flame despite O2 adjustment which is difficult being under knobs, grill section takes about 20 attempts to ignite. Pots are always covered in soot after use. used same gas for other stove which burns beautifully, so its not gas supply. After 6 months it is difficult to read knob settings, very faint. now looking for replacement as younger wife cant handle cleaning soot covered pots. Destroys her nails.
