Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Maryle takes too long to heat the pans
As others have mentioned, the grate sits too high above the flames so it takes A LOT longer to heat the food in the pots/pans. You really have to adjust your cooking time, especially if you need to boil water. Also, the grates are heavy and cumbersome to move to clean the cooktop. The cooktop came with the house, and I would NOT recommend it to anyone.

No negative comments. Very pleased. Low setting on even the largest burner is very low and stable. High on the the big center burner heats up our 16 qt. stock pot nicely. Grates are very stable. Cleaning isn't a problem .

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SORRYGE You'll spend more money replacing knobs
I bought a new house will be 3 years old in January. I requested Bosch appliances but builder said they only used GE. I have bought 8 burners, plus got 3 under warranty and 4 from GE. They melt from the inside. Now I need 3 more. House had a 36" over the counter microwave that's been discontinued by all manufacturers. Can't be repaired. Sad!!!

Bought this unexpectedly as it was on sale, and was concerned about some of the reviews found here. Specifically, some saying that the burners were to far below the cook surface for it to heat quickly or well. They must have fixed the problem, as I've had no trouble. Earlier today I had six pounds of onions to caramelize for French onion soup. As you know, low and slow is the name of the game for caramelization, so I set the burner on 4, just in case they were right. Way to hot, so I went down to 2.5 and got a strong simmer/low boil - still to hot [I was looking for a slow simmer]. The long and the short of it is I ended up with the burner set on its lowest setting and it's perfect. My cookware is anodized aluminum from Costco, which is a very common cookware type, and this thing performed flawlessly. The grates are crazy heavy and it supports my All American canner with no problems at all. I'm still waiting for the trim kit from Microtrim, but other than that we're 'cooking with gas' as the saying goes. I would heartily recommend this product to anyone, particularly if you're trying to find that fifth burner in only 30 inches, which is not a common feature and makes this model especially worthwhile.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by arcisme Great cooktop, if you only want one burner
The great concept of this cooktop is not realized because the only burner that works is the one in the middle, which actually works quite well. None of the other burners can be sufficiently used for cooking. I appears that the grates are too high from the flame. Even if they were closer the cooktop is too crowded and awkward to try to cook with more than one burner at a time. Save your money and look elsewhere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Zark Love this stove.
We converted our stove from electric to gas after the ceramic top cracked. It is great to be cooking with gas again. We had to run a new gas line and convert the 240v outlet to 110v, the later being easy. I had a plumber install the gas line (connections) because there was not enough capacity in the manifold to run all of the gas appliances in the house. A regulator was supplied with the stove so it was an easy install, except for running the line itself which I did..
The power burner works really well. I also like the simmer burners and how low they can be turned down. The stove has been easy to clean. I typically just wipe it down with the supplied cleaner after each use. You do have to be careful taking the grates in and out because they can scratch the stainless steel.
When converting from electric to gas we found the counter top hole was too big. We purchased a trim kit from Microtrim as shown in attached picture. Worked great.
I hate cleaning (especially around knobs) so an easy way to prevent grease splatter from hitting the knobs is to buy a cheap aluminum round pie pan and cut straight across about 1/3 of the pan. The pan slips perfectly right in front of the knobs next to the grates. When done cooking the pie pan is put away. So easy an it also keeps heat away from the knobs.
We may sell our house next year and plan to buy this stove again. We got a great price when it was on sale. Regards.

Those of you looking for a 30" cooktop knows they are hard to fine with 5 burners. Quality seems good, no complaints there. The problem I am having is boiling water, or cooking at high temperatures. The grates are too far away from the flame therefore the flame does not kiss the bottom on the pots/pans. I use only All Clad cookware which is heavy gauged steel and cast iron; yet I can't get a rolling boil going. I give this a "F" for performance and am looking to return this range. I went and measured similar cooktops and the average is 1" from the flame source to grate vs the 1 1/2 3/4" this range has. Buyer be ware.
