This is a fast, elegant, and efficient way to cook. I installed this myself, and that was demanding, but very worthwhile once it was hooked up and working. It is such a great improvement over the previous electric stove and is taking some adjustment to learn how to use it well. It rocks!!

Great for the control freak in me.....
I love being able to control the exact temperature, not having hot burners and getting a pan of boiling water faster than I can peel the potato going in it. I give it very high marks but want to point out one possible area of improvement. It is very difficult to see the "burner" if the pan casts a shadow. Maybe a little more contrast or a perimeter circle. Doesn't really matter though because the pan heats up wherever it is in the circle. Tough to break old habits....

Instant heat, easy to clean
Love the induction cooking - works much like gas without the hassle of clean up. Wipes clean so easily with completely flat surface. Only thing I would change after having it for 3 months - would prefer a more gray than black top as dust shows so quickly on the black surface and needs to be wiped down daily regardless of use. Rapid water boil saves time frequently - we love it!

LOVE THIS COOKTOP
I'm a guy, engineer, age 66, and I researched the induction tops for a year. I talked about it so much that my wife agreed. We had an electric cast-iron burner range before. We did an 80% kitchen remodel with granite tops. My wife wanted all SS and looked at all of the models and picked the GE Profile series. I was won over by the totally knob less, button less GE design. This top is really fantastic to cook on. If a pot starts to boil-over, no need to move it just touch the ON/OFF area on the glass surface and it quits boiling faster than you could move it. Then touch ON/OFF and set it at 2 or 3 and walk away. My wife thinks it is maybe the "second" best decision I ever made. We put a built-in Wall oven under the cooktop to replace the slide in range we had before. All this was in a center island over a concrete slab. I installed a two breaker power panel in the Island to provide separate circuits (20A & 40A) for the oven and cooktop. The feed to the panel is still the 40 amp circuit I had and figure I won't have any tripping problems as the equivalent GE range only needs a 40 amp supply.

I searched and searched....
I searched in stores and on-line for the perfect cooktop for our kitchen/dinning remodel. I decided on induction cooking after extensive reading. Even though some suggest a ventilation system might not be needed, I did not want to take a chance. This cooktop is not only perfect in every sense, it has a downdraft that can be installed with it. We also purchased the downdraft exhaust and could not be happier with the result. New cooktop, new downdraft, and new pots and pans all add up to a new way of cooking and one very satisfied customer. Thanks, GE!

cooks well, looks nice
I really like the cooktop. The directions on cleaning could be better, but it works really well. When you turn off a unit, it turns off very quickly, more like a gas stove than my old electric.

I love everything about this cooktop. It is very easy to clean and stays looking nice, it is FAST to make heat adjustments, and it looks. We had a hard time finding a non stick "chicken fryer" type of pan that would work with induction. We had no problem finding regular cookware that would work well, though. I love using this cooktop.
