Summary: Bought this to replace an old 30" cooktop that died. While the features sounded good in the store- powerboil, an element that can be used as 9" or 12", etc. I never really looked at the burner arrangement while thinking how cooking is actually done. For example, the only use I have for a 12" element is making stew or pasta sauce, and in neither case do I need or want that element in front.
Summary: "This is a great cooktop, especially, for the money. That said, it is much more difficult to keep clean. The clear black top shows everything and a simple wet cloth does not fully clean it. Not sorry I purchased it, it just takes a little more work to keep it looking great.
Summary: I purchased this unit twice mainly because of price. Love the look and use of this cook top but after about a years of use the Ge profile writing on stovetop washed completely off. Reason for second purchase was because I accidently cracked the glass top and price.
Summary: "Beautiful cooktop almost disappears into our black corian countertop. Very fast heatup, and it is very conrtollable. (almost as easy to control as gas burners). Much easier to clean than our old coil style unit.
