Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TOPS Beautiful and Productive!
I was worried about switching from gas to electric in my house because the gas cooktop looked so pretty but now that we have our new GE glass top, I am thrilled. Not only does it look fantastic, it is easy to operate and clean. Very pleased with this purchase from HomeDepo

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nick124 Nice looking product, but not the best for the money
The elements all heat up very quickly.
And while it does have a downdraft, there are drawbacks to its design: spills can drip into the downdraft quite easily (there is no lip) and the downdraft fan is huge and is a pain to fit into an existing counter installation.
The plastic control knobs feel cheap and do not turn very well.
Fine cooktop, but for its price-point, I would expect a more polished product.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Busymom Disappointed in Durability
I purchased this cooktop as I needed an electric one with a downdraft. The selection is few and this appliance had the best rating. My husband and I installed this cooktop ourselves. It was cubersome but not impossible. As other reviewers have noted, not all necessary parts come with the unit as part of the package. We did have to buy parts to connect the electrical. Luckily, Home Depot does not carry the GE package that the manual suggested since it was over $100. We put together our own kit from assorted parts and it cost us about $20. The cooktop looks beautiful. It heats quickly and evenly and the exhaust fan works very well. BUT, the glass top is a nightmare to clean and protect. The first time cooking pancakes, some batter dropped on the surface and hardened. I followed the instructions on the cleaning cream to remove the batter using the plastic scrubber. The batter came off but also left a scratch mark on the glass from using the plastic scrubber. After each use, I must wipe down the cooktop and then spend a few minutes vigorously polishing the glass to be free of streaks. I then purchased a new set of cookware (nonstick from T-Fal, NOT FOR GLASS) and the bottom of the frying pan left permanent scratches on the burner after one use. This cooktop is like i-phone glass screens. Easily damaged, hard to keep clean and seem bound for replacement every 5 years. Why can't they make a cooktop out of a durable material that can stand up to a little wear? Very disappointed that my beautiful cooktop turned into an ugly ducking after only one week.

The cooktop works very well, in general, except the part the bridge knob connects to broke down inside the cooktop. I was told this part was VERY expensive relative to how much I use the bridge, so I am living without. The downdraft mechanism is powerful enough to do the job, so I'm happy with that. My major complaint is keeping it clean - even if you pop the knobs off, the posts are still in the way, and it's virtually impossible to clean around them properly. I would recommend getting a knobless cooktop instead. Also, it is very difficult to get the cover to the downdraft clean, even though it's removable. The black painted surface attracts grease which is difficult to get to between the louvers.

I needed to exchange this for a black unit as the white did not go with the new granite tops that we had installed. Your staff in both the Gig Harbor, WA and Silverdale, WA store could not have been more helpful and courtious. I wish all my purchases and exchanges could be handled this well. Thank you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Randy Good Top but pricey
The top installed easy, once you have all the parts, and has so far worked well. The controls are a bit confusing as two of the four knobs control two burner sections. For the money I did expect all the pieces for the installation. Not included were the adapter for the downdraft fan, power cord, any type of mounting brackets beyond two sided tape.

This is a ceramic cooktop. I am happy with the features that it has such as the fan having 3 setting, and the heat indicator lights.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cmf1953 Poor quality; would not purchase again.
I am very disturbed that my cooktop, which was installed in 2006, now has an element that is not working. My purchase price was $1400, and I thought that the GE Profile was a reliable brand. In order to replace the element, I must pay $70 for the part and $200 for the labor, as the cooktop has to be removed from my kitchen island for repair. Warranty expired July, 2011; isn't that a shame! I will never again purchase a GE product.
