  • Style:

Pros:Smooth cooktop, continuous grate, sealed burners, high-output power burner, logical placement of controls.

Cons:Smooth cooktop. Plastic control knobs.

We replaced a GE JGP328 with this cooktop because:

1. The Jenn-Air power burner produces 17,000 BTU -- the most you will find in any non-commercial cooktop and far more than the puny 9,100 BTU of the GE cooktop. If you ever boil big pots of water, the difference in performance is astounding.

2. Jenn-Air positions the control knobs logically, rather than off to one side where you need to study the diagrams to know what controls what.

3. This model has a smooth glass surface rather than the burner wells which are less attractive and harder to clean. Yes, some consumers and reviewers believe the well provides added safety in the case of boilover, but anyone who leaves a boiling pot unattended is both careless and extremely foolish.

The heavy-duty continuous grates allow you to move large pots and pans without having to lift them. The distinctive grates on the Jenn-Air are attractive, functional, and sturdy.

I would have preferred brushed aluminum or nickel control knobs in place of the plastic ones. Even so, I selected this model because I found it to be the best 30-inch gas-on-glass continuous-grate cooktop I could find at any price.
