Rated 5 out of 5 by from 17 years later we bought the same cooktop. When we did a kitchen remodel recently, we purchased a similar GE profile cooktop that we had purchased 17 years prior. (Although it was still working, we wanted to update our kitchen with the new product.) We are so pleased with our new cooktop.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Liked My Old One Better I had to replace the GE smooth cooktop that we've had since 2000 because my son broke the glass. This cooktop is essentially the same, but I've found that it's harder to clean. My old one had a slightly textured surface and a lot of white speckles on it. Because this one is so shiny and doesn't have the same surface as the old one, it shows every spot, spill and scorch. It never, ever looks clean. Neither the cooktop cleaner that came with it nor my old, reliable Barkeeper's Friend help. It's still better than coils though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heating It heats much faster than my old stove, which took some getting use to, however I like it a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This stove top was easily installed by my husband; looks great; heats quickly and cooks well with steady heat. I found that the only thing you have to watch for is when you have something to keep warm - the warm setting will continue to simmer whatever is on that burner, so the heat may need further lower adjustment. Otherwise, I use this top the same way I used my old electric: I DO use my coated cast iron, and my metal heat diffusers on this surface, and there are no ill effects. I am careful to leave them in one spot and not "scrape" them on the top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I expected plus more Original stovetop (GE) failed after 30 years, replaced with this one. Kind of pricey, but the product is well worth it. Very effiecient and low maintainence
