Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RNforKids Hard to clean
Purchased this for our kitchen redo. HATE it!!!! So hard to clean! Takes longer to clean than to cook dinner. I actually avoid using it at all costs, and get angry when my kids do :(
Have had the cooktop in place for less than 6 months, glass is scratched (from the pad and cleaner that came with the it!). The knobs are cheap plastic (and scratched from cleaning and my grates have the paint removed from them already. My installer also had a very hard time installing as the size of the vent is not standard. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LEESKITCHEN GREAT GAS COOKTOP
Would be nice to have a lower temp burner than the one that it has. We would buy it again, but only in white. The cleaning material sample that came with it works great!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HandyRC Great downvent gas cooktop
The stainless steel trim provides an extra bit of protection along the glass edge, it also make the cooktop look nice. The vent is really strong, even on low, the gas flames from the burners are pulled toward the vent!
The metal lip underneath the glass that makes up the gas range is not very wide, so you have to have nearly an exact cutout in your countertop or else you risk supporting the weight of your cooktop with the glass surface, which could cause it to crack. Installation was fairly straightforward, I did it myself but I was just replacing an old gas cooktop with downvent of roughly the same size.
I only needed to run out to Home Depot once to get a 6" round to 3.25"x10" vent adapter to connect the fan to my existing vent. I already had a pipe wrench, gas pipe sealer and the all the other tools required for the install. I had to make more room inside my cabinet for the vent stack and fan (it was larger than my previous cooktop) which involved me using my circular saw. The entire installation process probably took me about 4 hours, but I took my time carefully reading over the instructions and making sure things dry fit in place properly before I secured them.
In the end, I have a great looking cooktop that is super easy to clean.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ktriplec Very nice looking cooktop!
Yes, it's hard to clean - let me just get that out of the way now. It's honestly not any tougher than your standard glass top cook top but if you aren't used to having one you will need to practice to get it down. Tip - clean dirt and grime with a wet towel as normal and then finish up with glass cleaner to eliminate streaks. It IS a glass top cook top after all!! I do love the look and the price was worth it since we aren't planning to stay in our house forever. It was a nightmare to install but we had to run a gas line through a full finished basement and our installers weren't the best. But everything about the actual cooking it fantastic!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by suebeedo WORST COOKTOP I'VE EVER HAD
I'm very fussy about keeping my appliances spotless. This cooktop has 15 removable pieces that I remove to clean all the time. Also, the two grates are removable. I don't see how anybody could think this is easy to clean. And try to keep the glass top looking good. No cleaner gets all the spots off. I finally used Barkeeper liquid. I found that cleans the best. The grates are so high up in the air, you have to have the flame on high to get anything to cook. Also, when the fan in on, the flames are pulled toward it. As far as I'm concerned, it's a piece of junk. We are having a new cooktop installed today. Both my husband and I hate this cooktop.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Supercook Grate Design Poor
This cooktop came with our new home. Looks great and functions well. I do a lot of 'wok cooking' but find that my curve bottomed woks do not sit on the grates at all due to the bad design. All the grates have a metal 'bubble' in the center which makes it impossible to sit a curve bottomed wok on the burners. GE does not provide a 'wok ring' with this burner either. Very disappointed about this!

I bought this stove top over a month ago. After reading previous reviews about being hard to keep clean I was a little concerned. But went for it because I love GE. I will say this stove top is amazingly easy to clean. Once a week I use bright glass cleaner and the rest of the week I use Dawn soapy water, and it always looks Fabulous. I have three boys in the house and we do a lot of cooking, it is an amazing stove top.
