This oven was part of our kitchen remodel. We replaced the previous cooktop because we wanted one that has soft touch controls. This model has worked flawlessly. The controls are easy to learn. We especially like the built in timer.

I bought my previous GE glass cooktop 14 years ago and it never got a scratch on it and I used it several times a day. The new glass cooktop has been used very little and it already has a scratch. Same use, same care as my old one. I would guess that the new glass is not as durable. I tried Cermabryte on it and it did no good so I know it is a permanent scratch.

Great Cooktop (cleaning tip!)

We have been using the cooktop for about a month now. Love the sleek look, no knob controls that make cleaning so much easier, adjustable burner sizes & griddle size burner, and the built-in timer feature that we use all the time for cooking pasta and rice. Initially, I was in complete agreement with the other reviewers/reviews about their disappointment with the difficulty in keeping the glass top clean and cooking splashes/spots not coming off - even with timely and vigorous cleaning. We were experiencing these same issues and with the same frustration & disappointment. It was so bad I even checked these reviews to see it was just us or if others were having these same issues and whether there were any tips and tricks to resolving. I even re-read the user's manual for cooktop cleaning - which said to use the sample "Cerama Brite" cooktop cleaner (with scrubber and scraper) that came with the cooktop before initial use which will aid in keeping the cooktop clean - we failed to do this! However, once we started using the sample "Cerama Brite" cooktop cleaner and scrub pad, the spots that wouldn't come off simply disappeared. REALLY. My husband and I were both stunned at what a difference this product made in the ease of cleaning the cooktop and in keeping it clean. So if you are having these same problems - use the "Cerama Brite" sample!!! Without Cerama Brite, I would give this cooktop 2 stars. Now that we discovered this cleaning trick - it now gets 5 stars!

I bought this cooktop about 5 months ago and here are my observations. Cooktop heats us quickly and evenly. I really like that you can select/adjust the pot size on various elements. I bought this cooktop because it had the largest area for a big pot, measures a little over 11 inches wide, and the controls are inbedded into the unit (no knobs). However, the placement of the largest burner at the back of the cooktop makes it less than an ideal location. Placement in the front would have been much better. I've purchased GE cooktops for various homes, (we move a lot) and would definitely purchase one again. However, I've noticed that this cooktop scratches more easily than GE products that I've had in the past. I know you have to lift a pot and not drag it, and I'm careful when placing pots on the cooktop. However, in less than six months I have about 4 scratches that won't come out. But even with this issue I would purchase this cooktop again because of the large burner size. I do have a recommendation for the designers. My previous cooktop had the controls running on the side and the burners were easier to access. I looked at all your cooktops and this design is no longer available. For people who cook a lot easy access to the pots in more important than controls in the front. At least in my opinion

I am really loving this cooktop! I purchased it when my (15-year-old) GE Profile cooktop started malfunctioning. The previous cooktop had knobs, which became gunky from food and grease. This cooktop has no knobs, so no gunky food is lurking around. The control panel can be a bit hard to see, so it helps to have an overhead light if you need better illumination. I like the push and (circular) swipe motion to turn the burners on and adjust the temperature. I also like having the handy timer right in front of me, although it is not very loud once it goes off. It's a good idea to use the LOCK feature when you are not cooking, to prevent any accidents. It's simple--just hold down the LOCK button for 3 seconds to lock and unlock. I definitely recommend this unit.
