Very happy
Posted:9/24/11
Pros: quick and responsive burners
"Range arrived about 3 weeks ago. Have used oven for roasting vegetables, baking casseroles, pizza and cookies.
All turned out perfect. Have not tried convection feature yet. As far as cooktop, not only do burners heat items very quickly, they are also extremely responsive reacting almost instantly when the heat is lowered. It is possible to get just the right heat level and keep something at a low boil, etc. So far we couldn't be happier with this purchase. Makes cooking fun and rewarding. As far as cookware we were able to easily find reasonably priced pans on Amazon and IKEA.

Very Happy w/PHB925SPSS & AJ Madison
Posted:6/26/11
Pros: styling & speed of cooking & features
Cons: oven light could be brighter, good price here but still an expensive range
"We were nervous about switching to induction and purchasing from AJ Madison but are very happy with the whole experience. The range works great and purchase/delivery were problem-free. It seems most low ratings here are on delivery issues but our range actually came faster than we expected."

Excellent range, could use cosmetic work
Posted:4/25/11
Pros: powerful, Quiet, practical
Cons: not very aesthetic
"Both the cooktop and the oven work very well, though the oven takes a little longer to heat than I would have expected. Overall, we are very satisfied with the purchase, and would make the same choice again if we had the opportunity. Of the available induction ranges, we chose the GE Profile because the controls were relatively simple, the cost was reasonable enough, and the functional aspects of the stove (burner placement, etc.) seemed sufficiently practical.
Some gotchas:
Because the cooktop is so dark and uniform, smudges are very visible. That said, it is also very easy to clean: one pass with a wet sponge, and one pass with a dry dish towel are usually enough for our spills.
The cooktop does make some noise while it is in use. When a burner is 'lit', there is a modest rattling noise. This is typical for all induction burners; your kitchen needs to be very quiet in order to hear it.
The fan that cools the induction electronics only turns on if there is sufficient heat to warrant it. We find that it will turn on if we have the oven on, and one or more burners up on a very high setting. Given all the other cooking noises present in a such a situation, the fan noise is not at all intrusive. It also turns off reasonably quickly once the electronics cool down.
You can't use the oven cleaning cycle and cook using the cooktop at the same time. The heat output from the oven is too hot to allow the induction electronics to be turned on. While the manual states this clearly, it was a surprise to us.
The LEDs on the front panel are not too bright, and are fairly intelligent about how they will light themselves depending on what you're trying to do.
In terms of appearance, the overall impression is that the range is very dark. Don't expect it to brighten up your kitchen, though the oven lights up nicely when you turn on the interior light."

Absolutely love it
Posted:3/24/11
Pros: instant reaction to temperature changes, easy to clean
Cons: streaking; not available in white
"My husband and I decided pretty quickly that we were going to switch to induction when we bought our new range, and after reading reviews of the three freestanding available this one was the no-brainer. We tracked prices for a while, and when it hit an appropriate level we pounced. The stove was delivered quickly and without a hitch. It looks great in the kitchen; the only reason I give it four stars for appearance is the high instance of streaking on both the top and stainless surfaces. And yes, I am that much of a neat freak.
As for performance, it's awesome. You really can cook on a paper towel. We tried flour sack towels so we didn't have to throw paper towels away all the time, but they turned brown. Things heat more rapidly than on traditional stoves, and the reaction time when increasing or reducing the temperature is instantaneous. Due to travel, school and work, I haven't had much time to use the oven yet. When I baked some tater tots the other night it still had that new oven smell.
I would not hesitate to recommend this stove."

LOVE THIS STOVE
Posted:2/11/11
Pros: safe instant heat and cool. large convection oven
Cons: touch pad shows every fingerprint., can't easily see where the burners are on cooktop
"2 months old and have used it enough to give a review. I love cooking with this stove. Instant heat, instant cool, safer than gas. Oven has great capacity and I love the true convection. My only drawback on this is the black controller touch pad shows every fingerprint every time it is adjusted. I'd also like a bit more of a defined look for the burners as I'm always trying to locate exactly where my pan should be on the cooktop."
