MIxed review

Comments about GE 36" Induction Cooktop:

This is an amazing cooktop when it works. It heats up quickly, cools down quickly - fantastic! However I just registered my SECOND one with GE because 3 out of 5 burners stopped working after only 17 months!! I heard a loud POP and that was that. Luckily I purchased a warranty. The warranty company chose to purchase us a new cooktop rather than fix the broken one. An interesting choice that I don't totally understand. I am concerned that our new second cooktop will go POP in 17 months and I will be out a cooktop and $1500. So....GREAT cooktop. Buy a warranty for sure. GE - please fix this issue! You have an amazing product here but it needs to last many years for the cost!

Comments about GE 36" Induction Cooktop:

This is our first induction cooktop, so bear that in mind when reading. Previously we had a 20-year-old electric glass cooktop. PROs: Dark top shows no stains. Food/water heats quite quickly on settings 6-10. Easy to operate. Excellent burner arrangement. No burned-on food! CONs: A little noisy (fan, "ticking" sound for cycling on). Scratches somewhat easily! (Scratched first day, with brand-new out-of-the-box cookware, and a few more since then.) Black top is mirror-shiny, which is hard to keep from streaking when wiping.


Great Cooktop (cleaning tip!)

By MFJ4215

Comments about GE 36" Induction Cooktop:

We have been using the cooktop for over a month now. Love the sleek look, no knob controls that make cleaning so much easier, adjustable burner sizes & griddle size burner, and the built-in timer feature that we use all the time for cooking pasta and rice. Initially, I was in complete agreement with the other reviewers/reviews about their disappointment with the difficulty in keeping the glass top clean and cooking splashes/spots not coming off - even with timely and vigorous cleaning. We were experiencing these same issues and with the same frustration & disappointment. It was so bad I even checked these reviews to see it was just us or if others were having these same issues and whether there were any tips and tricks to resolving. I even re-read the user's manual for cooktop cleaning tips - which said to use the sample "Cerama Brite" cooktop cleaner (with scrubber and scraper) that came with the cooktop before initial use which will aid in keeping the cooktop clean - we failed to do this! However, once we started using the "Cerama Brite" cooktop cleaner and scrub pad sample, the spots that wouldn't come off (with prior repeated cleaning) simply disappeared. REALLY. My husband and I were both stunned at what a difference this product made in the ease of cleaning the cooktop and in keeping it clean. So if you are having these same problems - use the "Cerama Brite" sample!!! Without Cerama Brite, I would give this cooktop 2 stars. Now that we discovered this cleaning trick - it now gets 5 stars!


Working Well!

Comments about GE 36" Induction Cooktop:

We had to replace an older induction cooktop, and this one is working so well. It heats up quickly, and I like that we can run two burners at once if we need to us a griddle or grill pan. The timer is loud enough that I can hear when it goes off. My favorite thing about induction is that my kids can't hurt themselves by turning it on accidentally. It has to have the right metal on the burners to work.


Glad We Chose Induction

Comments about GE 36" Induction Cooktop:

Have used electric ranges most my life, other than a couple years in Europe with gas as well as the last 6 years with natural gas. Definately had become a huge fan of cooking with gas. This is our first go round with induction and we're in LOVE. This cooktop is simple to use with great control over cooking at all sorts of temperatures. One small annoyance, and I'm still doing research to see if it's an appliance issue, or something to do with our induction pans, but on occasion an induction unit (individual burner) will start to make a buzzing noise when in use. We've tried different pans on different burners in different combinations and it seems to be completely random. It's not always the same burner, or pan, nor is it every time we use the cooktop, etc...


So Happy!

Comments about GE 36" Induction Cooktop:

I had this installed two weeks ago. We moved into a condo, and the cooktop was electric, no gas. I have only cooked on gas for the last 30 years, and do not care for electric. Let me tell you, when the installer put an inch of water into a saucepan and it was boiling 60 seconds later, I was impressed. Then I turned the heat down and the effect was instantaneous! I love this cook top.


OMG - Cannot Wait to Cook!

Comments about GE 36" Induction Cooktop:

I have only just installed the unit but I am so impressed by the controls and the efficient heat - within seconds I had a saucepan with boiling water, tested the safety features and was delighted! My husband is a licensed contractor and we replaced an older GE cooktop. He had absolutely no trouble with taking out the old unit - perfect fit! Both of us are very happy with the product so far.


Never again!

Dark grey lettering on black glass with no back light! Who would design a product like this??? And no fix for the problem except use an overhead light - even in the middle of a bright sunny day!!! Another of GEs failures.


Awesome stovetop!

By glolindz

Comments about GE 36" Induction Cooktop:

Have had the GE induction stovetop for a couple months This is my first experience with induction heat I love, love, love it. Was nervous at first about using it, but it is so easy to operate the control buttons and like that the entire stove top doesn't get hot. Everything cooks so fast and it taste so good cooked on this stove. I bought the 36" model which has the bridge burners and am really enjoying that feature, as well as the extra large burner for my huge soup pot.


Not like our previous cooktop

By JanineA

Comments about GE 36" Induction Cooktop:

We had to replace our original induction cooktop because of a computer board problem. This cooktop takes longer to heat things up and it is hard to read.
