Summary: so far, so good. beware the size of your existing hole in the counter, however. i'm having to add in a tiny bit of support, as my hole was a tad too wide for the called for 19 1/8" x 33 7/8" (you can google the manual easily, btw). also a normal thing that isnt the ovens fault is some cookware "buzzes" hard to describe. like a bug zapper only much much milder volume. but if you look up "induction cooker buzzing" its apparently normal.
When it works it is great, cooks fast and easy to clean

Summary: When it works it is great, cooks fast and easy to clean. However, it only worked for 10 days after it was installed. The controls board went out on the unit and it is unusable, the controls lock is stuck on so you can not turn on any elements. It has been this way for over a month, the GE repair process is horrible.
Summary: I had a white electric cooktop for about 12 years that I hated because it always looked dirty and it was hard to clean. It had also discolored soon after purchase. I had bought an induction single element a few years ago and liked it some, but the heat wasn't finely adjustable enough. My daughter liked her induction stove, so decided to try a new GE induciton stovetop. Oddly enough, the white cooktop cracked right down the middle just as we decided to replace it!
Excerpt: This induction cooktop is every bit as responsive as the gas stove I cooked on for 19 years. I love the way it looks on my granite counter top, it is extremely easy to clean and serves as additional counter space when I am not cooking on it. It is the perfect solution since I now live in a 'no gas' community.
Summary: It's the best built-in induction cooktop! There are five slots, all of varying sizes. Heat is instant so there's no need to wait. As a matter of fact, this powerful beast will boil a pan of water in seconds.
Summary: I have owned this cooktop for 6 months. My third smooth top since 1993 but my first induction type (they are glass and will break if something dropped hits it hard enough, I broke the first two.) This is the best I have owned. When turned off the only residual heat is from the hot pan not the cooktop.Temp control is practically unlimited. Clean up is easy, wipe with a warm soapy rag, rinse the rag, wring it and wipe dry.
Summary: We built a house last year and will be living in the house for a year tomorrow. We chose this cooktop for our kitchen (purchased it through a local appliance store), and it is my favorite part of the kitchen! I came from a cheap electric range that literally took 15-20 minutes to boil water. It was absolutely horrible for cooking. This induction cooktop is the best! It boils water in about a minute and the controls are very accurate. Cooking is a joy now.
Excerpt: We just purchased this cooktop and already are so impressed with it. It was easy to install and very user friendly. We were amazed at how quickly it boiled water (about 1 minute!). I am very excited to start cooking with this.
