Excerpt: Love the range top! However, my biggest complaint is it hard to keep clean. I expect to have to wipe down the top after I cook. I didn't expect to have scrub quite so hard. And it may just be the dues one pays for having a ceramic stove top. Having said that though the top has performed very well and there have been no other problems.
Excerpt: I had the previous 36" GE Profile model for 10 years and had no problems with it whatsoever. This unit is just as attractive as the earlier one. The triple burner is a great new feature, as well as it being located in the center of the unit. (The previous model only had a dual burner.) I love the bridge feature, too. When I sold my last home, my GE Profile cooktop looked brand-new. Cleaning was so easy!
Excerpt: This is the best smoothbop I have ever had going back to 1984 when they first were available. The instant heat is quick as gas and the adjusting of temp is very sensitive. I really like the white better then black because it "forces" me to clean the top after a spill which means less bacteria sticking around.. It is easy to clean and no residue marks are visible. The knobes come off easily for cleaning.
Excerpt: This is the 3rd GE cooktop that we have owned and we like it a lot. It heats quickly, maintains a constant temperature, and is very easy to clean. The mix of burners assures us that there is always one to fit our needs.
Summary: Can't keep it clean. Blotches and stains appeared almost immediately even though I was meticulous in caring for it. Most of the dial markings have worn off, so I just turn the dials based on memory. We've had it for 4 1/2 years, but I've had cooktops and stoves for a lot longer than that. It is an ugly mess. None of the cleaning products advertised work, and I have tried them all. I'd be happy with an old style coil cooktop with an enamel finish that cleans up nicely.
