Happy to have this to replace my old white 4-burner. Middle large burner is great although the 'turbo' setting doesn't work as well as I hoped for heating a large pot quickly. Griddle was a nice surprise, didn't realize it came with one. Installation was a bit tricky, did not quite fit in old cut-out.
I bought this GE cooktop to replace another GE cooktop of the same line. My guess is that the other cooktop was at least 13 years old, and my efforts to refurbish it made everything worse. Be very careful about the measurements of 36 inch standard because this cooktop was slightly larger than the previous cooktop in the width of the hole needed for the penetration (maybe 3/8 inch). Also, the corners are rounded on this model, taking about 1/4 inch off of the point in each of the 4 corners. The result was a very tight fit, no need for the tie downs, and a very small hole at the two front corners that you have to know to look for. It is much better than what was there previously, but this is now not a standard 36 inch product. Just so that you know.
Not heavy duty. Frail grates. One of the grates arrived broken. Since this cooktop is a replacement, it's the only one we could find to fit the cut in the granite .
We purchased this cooktop and we are not disappointed. It looks great and cooks great.The burners adjust continually from very high to very low, unlike my last cooktop that would not adjust to a true simmer low. I've cooked on this cooktop daily for about 6 weeks, and splattered grease all over it many times, still looks brand new.
