Didn't realize that our newer cooking pans wouldn't be recommended for use on this cook top because they have rounded edges. Had only two pans that could be used. Had to buy two new flat bottomed pans to cook the meals we minimally cook. Clean up has been frustrating because we have to wait until after we have eaten and washed the hand washing dishes before the cook top is cool enough to clean. Then the cleaning process involves cleaning the surface twice with the glass cleaner to get the surface visually clean.
It wasn't easy to install because we replaced a GE with a larger footprint, and the adapter kit is expensive. Cooktop works good. The touch controls can get a bit weird if water is on the surface as other may read a touch from somewhere else; had it turning off burners on a couple of occasions.

This is an extremely poor design. The large center eye means that if you use a large frying pan, the handle is always over at least one or two eyes, depending on if the pan has a second handle on the end. Also you have to reach over boiling or steaming items on other eyes to lift the largest pot or pan in the center eye off the cook top. If you use the next largest eye, the pot or pan easily encroaches on the small eye at the top and the edge of the center eye. This is just useless for anyone who likes to cook multiple things for a crowd- like a big Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. I am so disappointed.
This was recommended and I had second thoughts, but wow it is a great cook top. Glad they talked me out of the knobs. This cook top pops against my granite and has just enough burners to make me a happy camper! Great GE product. We went GE with all the appliances and even the laundry room.
