I bought this cooktop to replace a GE radiant-heat cooktop that was about 15 years old. It fit perfectly in the cutout in the countertop, unlike other brands, which were either too big or too small. I greatly enjoy cooking with it: the heat comes up right away and adjusts quite accurately with the touch controls. And since the surface doesn't get hot, spills don't burn onto it like on the radiant-heat one I had before. The price was appreciably higher than that of a radiant-heat unit, but so far it seems worth the difference.
- I recommend this product.
