Summary: I only gave 4 stars for overall because cleaning can be fussy. Use the Cerama Bryte as instructed with a washable microfiber rag, and you'll keep that new shine. Don't bother with general cleaners, they won't cut grease enough, and paper towel will only re-arrange the streaks.
My wife loves it, the work was easy managable, the price was right!!!

Summary: I had no problem with the entire "package", everything was well packaged, instruction very clear (for a "handy man"). I replaced a Jenn Air Down Draft Cooktop(same size) the only problem was I needed new sheet metal adaptor and a short extension of the existing vent duct. Recommended!
Summary: I purchased this cooktop in November of 2012. After just over a year of use both cooking grates corroded through in less than 14 months. Unfortunately the warranty is only for 12 months and GE would not make an exception. The grates are very thin and the replacements are very expensive.
Excerpt: We did a small kitchen remodel and wanted to replace electric with gas. I was a little skeptical about the downdraft with gas, but certainly needed to do so as the cooktop sits on an island. I'm very pleased with the functionality and look of this cooktop.
This same cooktop was going to cost me $600 more at Sears or Home Depot.

Summary: The cooktop arrived without any damage or mishap. The same cooktop was going to cost me $600 more at Sears or Home Depot. SO SO SO glad I bought it on eBay! The cooktop installed fine and works great! The burners ignite SO FAST compared to my old cooktop. Very happy with my purchase.
Outstanding value with the potential for many, many years of service.

Summary: Absolutely beautiful cooktop. I purchased the black glass model. Very well constructed. I installed it myself without any difficulty. I have received numerous compliments because of its "high tech" appearance. Very easy to clean and maintain.
