Pros:
Easy to clean,
heats up the pans fast.
Food doesn't cook onto the surface, since that is not what's getting hot (the pan does).
Reacts quickly, almost like gas.

Cons:
You'll need a 50 amp circuit for the 36"

Hello. This is Jill with GE. Thank you for your interest in our appliances and for your inquiry. I am happy to help. The development of the induction feature is phenomenal, and my absolute favorite method of cooking. Heat is produced by way of a high-frequency induction coil below the cooktop's smooth surface that heats the cookware by a magnetic field. The only area that heats is that which comes in contact with the magnetic or iron-content cookware, leaving the un-used portion of the element unheated. Induction differs from gas or radiant cooktops because there is no exposed coil, open flame or heated surface. If an element is turned on accidentally, no heat is generated unless cookware 5" or greater in diameter is placed on the element. When cookware is removed from the element, the coil is de-energized and automatically turns off within 30 seconds. Induction cooking is faster than gas and radiant cooktops. The surface is also easy to clean.
The only challenge with using this feature is that you need to make sure that the proper type of cookware is used. Cookware should be made of magnetic stainless steel, cast iron, enameled steel or a combination of these materials. Pans should have a flat bottom and be at least 5 inches across the bottom. A magnet must be able to stick and hold to the bottom of the pan. Aluminum or aluminum clad, copper or copper clad, aluminum foil, glass, ceramic, and some stainless steel products which do not hold a magnet cannot be used.
As you can see, the benefits far outweigh the challenges. I hope this helps! Please let us know if any additional questions come up. Have a nice day! Read Less

I am considering the 36" GE Profile induction cooktop to replace an existing non-induction electric cooktop. Is this a DIY installation for a fairly experienced DIYer? Can I find installation instructions anywhere before buying to understand what's involved? Thanks.

Answer: 
It's pretty easy if you already have a hard wired cooktop that you're replacing, as long as the circuit is big enough. It doesn't plug in. It's wired directly to the wires of your home. Turn your power off to your existing cooktop, undo the wiring on the current cooktop, patch in this cooktops wiring and then turn it back on. For the 36", you'll need a 50 amp circuit. If you don't have a 50 amp circuit Read More

Hi Dave,
On the product information page scroll down to ’ more info’ and click on it.
There you can select the instruction/assembly link. The instruction manual will appear, you then can download or printout out the entire installation instructions before ever buying the appliance.
This will allow you to determine if you have the tools and skill to handle the installation.
Thanks for your question

Hi COOKTOP, I’m BlakeTheDiyGuy from Home Depot’s online community. There are a few great hoods that are also from the GE Profile suite that would coordinate perfectly with this induction cooktop giving you a designer look.
The first is a wall mounted chimney unit, with 450 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) venting capacity. This unit requires that there be no wall cabinet mounted above your cooktop.
http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1v/R-100669145/h_d2/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053
This next hood is similar to the last one, only it is designed for a hood installed in an island where wall mounting is not an option. Also 450 CFM
http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1v/R-100669151/h_d2/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053
If you are looking for a professional-kitchen look then you may want to look at this GE Profile hood which features professional looks AND performance with a powerful 590 CFM blower.
http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1v/R-100018498/h_d2/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053
Or if a more subtle look is what you are after, then the slide out vent may be just what you are looking for. Most of the unit is hidden inside your wall cabinet, providing cleaner lines. This uses a less powerful 320 CFM blower.
http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1v/R-100097980/h_d2/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053
I hope this helps you find the right hood for you, they would all look and perform great with that new induction top!

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 159 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this cooktop I was able to buy this cooktop for about 800 less than the full price as it has been discontinued. I had only read about the plus points of induction cooking and when remodeling my kitchen gas was not an option in my area. So I bought this model and I learned right away from a friend that has one that to know if you have the right pan or not, Simple way to know, if a magnet sticks to the bottom of your pan then your pan will cook correctly. I had to give a way a couple of my pans but I use all-clad and every one of them work beautifully! The even and quick heating still has me in total amazement! love it! will never have anything else. October 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love Induction I've only lived in homes with the standard electric cook tops so I can't comment on induction vs. gas. Having said that I will never go back to standard cook tops after using induction. It boggles my mind how fast I bring a giant pot from room temp. to a running boil. The home I purchased had this cooktop already installed so I didn't shop around or compare features but this model seems to be more than sufficient. I should add the cook top is a lot easier to clean as only the pan/pot gets hot and not the element; eliminating much of the 'cooked on' junk you usually have to scrub. June 17, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Main Board down within a month I had my induction cooktop installed during kitchen renovation a month ago. With the Renovation I switched to GE Profile appliances thinking they were upgrade from my LG appliances. Loved induction. Its great! After about a month of cooking on it, two nights ago I heard a pop while cleaning the cooktop. Now the two big burners and the other little burner on that side dont stay on. GE repairman says the board is down and needs to be replaced. This is not the first one he has seen. Only a month. Sure, they will have the parts here in two days and repair it on Monday but its Mother's day weekend and I have a lot of company coming and no working cooktop! Not Happy. The boards are about 1/3 of the price of the cooktop. What am I in for here? Not happy and worried that I decided to switch to GE Profile appliances. May 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Cooktop Fast, powerful, clean, great looking. I was skeptical until I read the CR reviews giving the highest scores ever for any cooktops to the induction models. (Only negative is the stainless frame that got scratched up in the first week of use - look at the frameless model.) I was a gas-only cook before; now, I wouldn't do anything but induction. Kitchen stays cool no matter how many boiling pots we have going. Almost no lost heat and energy to the atmosphere as with gas. All the energy goes directly to the pan. Low heat is constant and as low as you want to go. Low boil is foolproof. Simmer is perfect, no guessing. My spaghetti sauce simmers for hours at exactly the temperature I want. Impressed with this cooktop daily. Really unless you must have the look of gas, you have to check out induction. September 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great buy We love this cooktop! Looks great and works perfectly. Be careful dragging pans across the stainless frame because it scratches very easily April 5, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do Not Buy Within the first 30 days of owning this cooktop it broken. Repairman came out 3 days later and informed us the computer system was completely shot. GE refused to replace the cooktop and would only replace the computer part. The computer part wasn't in stock and would take 30 days to come in. After days of constant arguing (and i mean constant arguing) they said they would either find the part or replace the cooktop within 7 days. The part didn't arrive so a new cooktop was installed another 7 days later. So this cooktop has spent more time broken then working - great product GE. The experience with customer service and the total product failure made me call Home Depot and take back the GE dishwasher we had just installed because the water wasn't draining fully and i can never trust GE or their customer service department. so that entire GE kitchen suite was sent back and i went with LG and boy am i happy. so heed my advice skip everything with a GE label and just go straight to LG October 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Top notch Easy to install. Works great very attractive . This was a Gift for my daughter and she loves it! It may cost a little more then others but well worth it. DH from West Virgina December 17, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ok product, horrible support looks good works good. i like induction. after about 8 months this unit would turn on by itself. called ge and a repairman was sent out. they would not cover repair as there was a scratch on the serial number( likely from instillation) they could not read the full number. even though i had the receipt(proof of purchase) they would not cover repair. so i am out $2000. will stay away from ge from now on. i am shocked that ge wont cover this as it can burn someones house down. already had a couple of pans burn up.
