Rated 3 out of 5 by shivkums Grates too high!
I replaced a 10 year old GE cook top and though this looks elegant, the grates are too high and compared to our older model, it takes too much time to cook. Looking at other reviews, it seems that GE is aware of this issue for a while but hasn't done anything about this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MichelleDA Beautiful Gas Cook top!
We moved into a new home in July and replaced all the appliances with GE. This gas cook top is gorgeous. I like the sleek brushed stainless steel base and the clean lines of the burner elements. I love the center burner for large pots that has two rings that light. I can bring a large pot to boil much more quickly than on my previous gas cook top. The burners light quickly, eliminating any anxious waiting for the fire to light while gas is seeping out of the element. I like the lock option where by the simple turn of a knob, I can lock all the knobs so burners can't get turned on by accident or by little fingers. It really is easy to clean, just a simple wipe with a damp cloth. The only downside I discovered is that the black burner elements are very heavy. I can't simply pick one up with one hand while I wipe with the other. I have to use two hands and set them aside to clean which is more of a hassle than I'd like but not a deal breaker. All in all, I am very pleased with this gas cook top.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CarolynMayBL Great eye appeal and function
Overall, I'm very happy with this cooktop. Easy to install and use. The center burner to perfect to boil water faster and to use under my 12" skillet. The ability to slide pans around the surface is very helpful. There is more distance between the flame and the pan than on my old cooktop, and it took a while to adjust to the difference in time it took to heat the pan; however, the adjustment didn't take long. LOVE the lighted dial to remind me when a burner is still on and LOVE the ease of cleaning under the grills.
The cast iron griddle took me a few times to get used to using. It must be VERY hot prior to cooking on it. Now that I've got the hang of it, my pancakes are turning out great. The only complaint on the griddle is that the two burners it covers are different BTU's and cannot be set separately using the 'Griddle' dial to get the flames the same; therefore, one end is hotter than the other.
Overall, I'm very happy with this cooktop. It really helped update my kitchen!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anthony G **Update to an earlier review
I had opted to pursue this scratching issue with GE Consumer Relations @ 800-386-1215 after spending quite a bit on GE Appliances as of recent. First let me say the experience and follow up was 10 of 10. In brief, I spoke with Tiffany who explained that GE offers a 30 day satisfaction guarantee on cosmetic issues. if in fact you had scratched your stovetop with the grates, you may be able to get it replaced if within 30 days of registration/purchase. Oddly enough a new part number replaced the original stainless steel stove top however the reason for the part replacement could not be determined. One hopes it was for an improvement with the cosmetic damage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by glennahailey LOVE THIS COOKTOP
Our children gave us a gift card and we used it to purchase this cooktop. We switched from a 30 year old GE electric top to this one. We chose stainless steel because we have replaced all of our appliances with stainless steel. This was the last appliance we needed to purchase.
I cannot say enough about it. We installed it yesterday (3-27-16) without any issues. It was slightly smaller that the cutout for the top we replaced. We took the stainless steel outer ring off the old top and used it as a spacer. The new cooktop sat right on top of the ring which made the it fit perfectly and saved us from having to buy the trim filler kit. It looks great too!
I love the griddle. It's quick and easy to switch out with the grate. I don't have any issue with power. This top cooks better than I expected per some of the reviews. I'm in love with this cooktop. I would recommend it without hesitation. It's beautiful.

The quality of the product is evident when you attempt to clean up normal spills and stains are permanently left.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JohnMM11 Love this extra burner and grill
We purchased the upgrade package for our new home. The large burner, extra space and grill was worth the upgrade!
