My General Electric Cooktop has been a welcome addition to my kitchen. It looks great, is easy to clean, heats quickly and dependably, and maintains the desired level of heat. My only challenge was replacing the several pans I owned with uneven bottoms, as they did not allow for optimal use of the cooktop. The design of the cooktop is attractive and functional. Dials are clearly marked and easily accessible. Learning to effectively and efficiently use the cooktop was easy. The almost instant heat and the rapid response to heat setting changes are time savers when cooking. Gone are the days of taking the burners apart to soak and scrub the messy pans to remove burned-on spills and overflows. It is easy to clean the cooktop with products approved by General Electric. This is a luxury. This cooktop has served me well for all types of cooking needs. I recommend it to anyone updating a kitchen.
