  • User Rating: Disappointing

  • Ease of Use:
  • Durability:
  • Ease of Cleaning:
  • Style:

Pros: No knobs, Sleek design, power boil feature, Heats well.

Cons:Hard to clean, scratches easily, super sensitive, salt spills can scratch.

The Bottom Line: I would not recommend this product.  It is hard to clean and the company will not work with the consumer at all. 


I installed my new GE cooktop at the end of March 2009 into my newly remodeled kitchen. At this time, the cooktop was supposed to come with a protective film covering the cooktop.  It did not have a film on it. It has nice features like the power boil feature and warms up rather fast and looked great with my counters when first installed.  The problem with it is mainly stylistic.  This is the most sensitive cooktop ever.  According to GM, salt can scratch it if it spills over.  You must clean it with the recommended cleaners only, which gets costly.  During cooking at the end of May 2009, I noticed a scratch on the glass top of the cooktop.  All I did was set a baking pan of toast on the top of the burner.  The sensitivity of the cooktop allowed it to be scratched simply by a normal pan coming out of the oven.   The pan was clean on the bottom and I had not been using the burners for cooking at this time. Perhaps it had been scratched during shipment and it just became noticeable when I placed cookware on top.   I contacted the company and they sent out a representative to look at my new electric cooktop. The service representative insulted me while in my home and basically refused to look at the pan that I used.  Not only did he refuse, but he came into my house and insulted me, before encouraging me to buy another one.  After this, he put me on the phone with Joyce, who insulted me further.  This is after I added one thousand dollars to their pocketbook.  I thought that maybe I had used the wrong kind of pan on the cooktop.  It was an aluminum baking pan.  They are refusing to repair my cooktop because they will only do it before the 30 day warranty period is up.  Mine was probably 60 days old at this time.  I've even written to the CEO of the company and he is stating that he will not repair.  It is not like I have set something on the cooktop that wasn't supposed to be there.  I am truly disappointed.   The bottomline is General Electric's best technology is used in the war games and not in the kitchen.
