We replaced our countertops recently and decided to also purchase a new cooktop at the same time. I would really love to have a gas cooktop but we don't have gas service in our neighborhood and I wasn't willing to pay to have a propane tank installed. I thought seriously about induction but was kind of scared by some of the reviews I read about various induction cooktops. So after reading all the reviews, I settled on this cooktop and it's been surprisingly nice to work with. It seems to heat quickly and evenly and I really haven't had any issues. I have two minor complaints: it's kind of hard to see the setting markings near the knobs (we have the black cooktop with the stainless knobs) and the sync burner wasn't quite what I was expecting. I have had a "bridge" burner on a GE range before and not only do the two burners work together but the space in-between also heats up. With the "sync" burners, the burners work in sync but the space in-between doesn't heat up. I didn't realize this difference until I actually used my cooktop.
I have owned this cooktop for two months. It replaced a 17 year old smooth cooktop. I never knew how much I liked it until it was gone. I purchased this particular GE model because 1. it was a good price, 2. I wanted knobs with center placement and 3. I wanted 5 cooking elements. Other than the knob placement, this has been a bust for me. I often cook with two large skillets or a large pot and a large skillet at the same time. There is only one large burner so I can only use one very large pan at a time. Since that large burner sits in the middle, the handle extends over other burners. Not good if you are wanting to use the other burners at the same time. I find the Syncburner to be almost worthless. It does not work for me if I want to put a large pan or pot in the middle of the two burners. Uneven heating results, due to the fact that the pan or pot is wider than the burners. I just purchased a new griddle to be used on the Syncburner. I found it to give uneven heating for that, also. After spending too much time trying to thoroughly cook the food, I ended up transferring the food to a skillet on the large burner. This cooktop is just a lot of effort every time I want to use it. I actually try to not use it. I don't think that I have ever disliked an appliance as much as I dislike this one. If nothing else, it looks really nice, but I do not recommend this model.
This cooktop has good features. Double eyes and even 2 eyes that work together. I t is hard to keep clean especially around knobs.
I just completed a kitchen remodel and selected the GE Profile cooktop because of its modern appearance and GE's reputation for quality products. I was not disappointed; the cooktop looks and works great. I am definetly satisified with my product.
Love this cooktop - great use of space with 5 burners, easy to tell if burner is left on and easy to clean.
Very efficient. Easy to clean. Power boil is great.
We were in dire need of replacing our stove top. The operation of this unit is AMAZING.
