An intuitive design paired with efficient heating that can accommodate a variety of pots and pans makes this a dream cooktop. The flush controls with safety lock are easy to use and the red LEDs let you know exactly which burner is on and how high it is set.
It may be disconcerting for some to touch the cooktop in order to control the elements.
GE's 30-inch black cooktop has a sleek, modern design with a minimum of controls which makes it intuitive to use. It is easy to clean and features a power boil setting as well as a warm setting to accommodate all your cooking needs.
The cooktop is slightly shy of 30 inches, so if you're using this as a replacement, you may run into a little difficulty.
This cooktop has a large center burner (18,000 BTUs) that is designed for larger pots while the smallest burner (5,000 BTUs) is effective for keeping food warm. The durable cast iron grates and rapid burner technology are appreciated.
The stainless steel surface of this cooktop can be difficult to keep clean from smudges, fingerprints, and splatters.
GE's 30-inch gas cooktop is easy to install and operate. The MAX system ensures there will be no loss of BTUs when converting from natural gas to LP and the front left burner features a power boil option for larger cookware.
The uniform placement of burners does not invite using cookware of different sizes.
Other than this cooktop's power boil feature, it is basically a no-frills model that just does what it is designed to do: it cooks your food. It is important to point out that the care taken with packaging this cooktop helps to ensure that it arrives undamaged.
The cast iron cooking grates lack a heft which would give you more confidence in their durability.
GE makes both electric cooktops and gas cooktops. The gas, burner-style cooktops come with dishwasher-safe grates and are available in either four-burner or five-burner models. Both the smooth-top and burner-style four-burner electric cooktops are designed to be easy to clean. Available options, depending on which style you choose, include a powerful down-draft exhaust system, precise-simmer burners, and power boil burners. All are easy to install and feature sleek, attractive designs that look great in modern kitchens. Prices vary widely, with some models in the mid hundreds to many that cost more than $1,000.
