Great fit

Submitted: 03-14-2020

I replaced an existing 36" GE cooktop with this new model. It went in perfectly. The electronic controls are particularly appealing as there are no knobs to remove to keep the top clean. Heats up very quickly. The ability to select different size rings on the same element is a nice feature.

Great cooktop. Easy to keep clean.

I dreaded going to a smooth cooktop because they looked hard to clean and when I saw them in people’s houses they often looked rough. After over six months, plus the Holidays mine looks new. I cook a lot and am not always the neatest cook. The secret seems to be using the cleaner EVERYTIME to essentially keep a coat of wax on it. So yes, you have to invest some time but you can keep it pristine. The unit itself is wonderful. Heats quickly, cooks evenly. Highly recommend!!

Was installed on a Monday and stopped working on Monday. F7 code! Motherboard needed to be replaced. Fixed and failed again! Hopefully 3rd one is the charm!

Less than I expected

This is a replacement cook top for a previous G.E. Monogram glass cook top we had for twenty one years. It had conventional control knobs & they we're always part of the cleaning regime. This unit has touch controls & presents a clean aesthetic surface, and is easier to clean as hoped. The major drawback is difficulty in seeing the touch controls in reduced light. It's apparent G.E. designed the unit to hide the controls which is a little too much for us. Our second issue with the controls is the nominal heat setting for the "plus" & "minus" . After touching the desired burner to "on", if you select the minus, it is at is lowest setting of "1" & you have to repeatedly touch the "plus" to get to a medium setting, for example. If you first touch "plus" it is on the highest setting and you have to again repeatedly touch the "minus" to lower the setting. To us, it was much easier with the older unit which had twist knobs which you quickly set in an instant. When the unit is on and you wipe the unit to remove a spill, it will easily tun off or adjust the heat setting. Very annoying. The unit has a lock for the controls, which keeps the burners from tuning on. It won't keep a burner on at a particular setting. The glass cook top already has a scratch. Our previous glass top had no scratches to the day we replaced the unit. I'm concerned about this units glass durability. The unit comes with an adhesive foam strip that is to be placed around the underside edge, prior to installation, as a cushioning to rest on the counter. The adhesive stickiness is almost non existent. At each attempt to install the unit, the foam strip would detach at some point. With finally getting a reasonable fit, the foam does not compress as I envisioned. There is a 1/8" exposure of foam which I fear will be a cleaning issue as time progresses. Where the foam loosened, & did not stick to the edge, there is a set back leaving a gap. The burners heat up quickly, and we feel they can bring water to boil faster than our previous unit. Might be our imagination, but no way to test now. The burners also will cycle off and come back on in what must be a temperature maintenance design. We don't recall our other unit doing this type of cycle.

great appearance

Love the lock button and the ease of controlling temperature.
