Very well designed
Posted:5/16/11
Pros: heating time appearance downdraft draw
"Cooktop is well designed, very fast at bringing a full gallon or more to a boil. Need to find a griddle to make use of the bridge heating element. The one we purchased warped everytime it heated up. Hard to find a good griddle for a smoothtop range. Down draft is excellent."

Shiny
Posted:5/13/11
"Replaced existing cooktop. Like the varied burner size. Large pot comes to a boil quickly. You do need to clean with cooktop cleaner every time if you want the nice clean appearance. Hate those water spots!
One of only 2 models that come with a down draft fan. Local installers having some difficulty retrofitting the exhaust duct work.

GE Smooth Cooktop
Posted:4/28/11
Pros: sleek looks. no fiddeling with elemnt rings. no, spill draining down.
Cons: slower cooking. difficult to clean the glass, surface to original shine.
"Purchased this to replace a conventional cook top. The looks are sleek definitely more pleasing. However the performance is average as the cooking time has increased. Very easy to mess the glass top with food droppings, water etc and pretty difficult to clean. Have yet to find a cleaner that will restore it to original condition after every use. Another downside is the downdraft system, which is definitely inferior to the updraft systems. Being of East Indian origin we do mostly Indian dishes that require longer cooking times."

GE 30" smoothtop cooktop
Posted:12/28/10
Pros: smooth flat surface high power 3 way fan black
Cons: i have not found any
"I had looked for 8 months for a new cooktop. I was sent a picture of this cooktop and liked it immediately. It was easy to install. Best of all is the performance. It cooks 3 times faster than my old cooktop. The clean up is easy. The only problem is I hate to get it dirty cuz it looks so nice. I like the 3 power fan option. I would highly recommend this to a friend."

Great performance
Posted:11/23/09
Pros: downdraft is very efficient and fairly quiet
"I love this cooktop. Had it installed professionally as the instructions for the ductwork looked a bit complicated but when it was done I was really impressed by the downdraft. It functions much better than I had expected or even hoped.
When clean, it looks very good indeed, but really needs to cleaned after every use to look its best. However, its quite an easy and satisfying job with the supplied Ceramabrite!
