Induction is so much faster and more precise than my old range.
Review Title: GE Slide in Induction Range | Review by Steve528
Looks and works great! We were going to replumb gas in the kitchen, but did some online research on induction cooktops. Glad we did, as this unit performs wonderfully. My wife and I are foodies, so a good cooktop and oven were key. And the fact that the warming drawer is part of this unit, made the decision to buy it a no-brainer! In our last home, we installed a separate warming drawer, but since we down-sized our home (and kitchen!), this all-in-1 slide in range was just the right choice!
Review Title: Design Flaw | Review by John1457
Love the stove but I'm unhappy with how the stove top fits with my granite count tops. The control pannel and back vent should be the same width as the glass cook top - that would give the stove a more "built-in" look. there's a 1/2" inch gap on either side of my control pannel and the granite.
Review Title: Fast temperature control | Review by Terry77
The induction heating on the range gives very responsive heating control (fast heat, near instant lower heat) but did require replacing nearly half of my pots (requires magnetic steel bottom). It is faster than gas and just as responsive (and we did not have natural gas available). The new unit had a problem with the oven door locking mechanism (could not unlock door) but this was fixed in home under warranty and is now perfect.
Review Title: Induction cooking is great | Review by monte77
Very pleased overall with a couple minor nitpicks. 1. Wish the temperature of the pan was displayed on the burners. The number displayed for the power level can mean very different heat depending on which of the 3 size burners are being used and even different pans. We have used it for 3 months and still are figuring out the setting needed sometimes. 2. The control lock feature is great, but it would be nice if the timer could be used even when the controls are locked. It should only lock the things that are hazardous when accidentally activated.
Review Title: Love all the features | Review by DivaDee
I love all the features of the Advantium 120, especially the speed cook. I use it quite a bit as a double oven. When I cook frozen buttermilk biscuits, they turn out perfect every time. Everything I have cooked in the speed cook has turned out perfect. I also love the Induction Range because when you turn the heat up or down, it's almost instant. The first time I cooked spaghetti sauce on my new range, I put a paper towel under the pot and it collected all the spatter from the sauce. I have bragged to everyone about these two products and recommend them highly to everyone. If we ever sell our home, the Advantium and Induction Range are coming with us.
Review Title: Induction cooktop is really nice | Review by Phill725
Great features, expensive but worth the induction cooktop option.
Review Title: GE Profile Series | Review by BJM81
We are enjoying our range very much. It is very efficient and meals are coming out very satisfactory.
Review Title: Sheer joy range | Review by PracticalAndPleased
Bought this range after extensive online research. We have found our Induction cooktop to be fast to heat pans and fast to let pans cool; as responsive as our prior gas ranges but so much safer and cleaner. Because it is induction, only certain of our pans worked. We knew we would have to replace some. But so delightful to cook with! Water boils so fast. Oven is big. Cooked 22 lb turkey in oven with thermometer- perfectly done. Cooktop very fine control of temperature, especially low temperature heating. Also, as much as 70% less electricity used for same cooking compared to conventional electrical, by report, so ecological and will become more economical each day. We are delighted with our purchase.
Review Title: Bent frame | Review by Jill64
We are in the process of remodeling our kitchen and I was excited to have new GE appliances. Unfortunately the range came damaged. With a bent frame the warming drawer does not close completely and it does not fit correctly in the space specifically designed for the appliance.
Review Title: Induction too hot? | Review by Marcia65
I've been using my induction range for over two months. We don't need to boil water for every meal, so finding the right setting for other simple things--a grilled cheese sandwich or a can of tomato soup--has been beyond my skill level! And I've been cooking for over 40 yrs. I'm using settings of 4 and below for most everything. When will I get to use 6, 7 or 8? I can't recommend this product. We sure were looking forward to it when we ordered it. Also the black top shows everything--esp. lint.
Review Title: wonderful range | Review by Ann123
I bought an induction range for safety with grandchildren running around the house and my age to reduce the change of burning anyone on the hot stove AND the energy savings
Review Title: great | Review by mhay
really need new oven think this will be best for my needs
Review Title: Awesome | Review by janeinpa
Going from a 35 year old oven and stove that did not work well, I feel like I have hit the jackpot. I love the induction cooktop. I did have to buy new pots and pans and now feel like I am in culinary heaven. There definitely is a bit of a readjustment in figuring the best temperature for cooking, but it is not difficult. I love how fast things heat and cook. The oven bakes evenly and is nice too. I haven't yet taken the time to play with the convection heat. Spend the extra $ for induction. You will not be disappointed.
Review Title: Cooks better than gas | Review by Workerbeez
I've used gas/propane, electric resistance, halogen, and now induction. FAR better than you can possibly imagine. It cooks faster than gas, yet keeps kitchen cool, and inherently safer than all other options. It is also efficient, recipes cook faster than any other method. As an example, making pancake recipe used to take 1/2 hour, now reduced to 12 minutes because pans heat up so fast. There should be a law out there that requires ALL new ranges to be this fast, safe, and efficient. My ONLY complaint is there should be a warning that there is a minimum pan size in order for the large burner to work.
Review Title: My Review | Review by Saltwaster
This range has provided excellent service thus far. Cooking temp is very accurately controlled.
Review Title: love it | Review by tmqs2012
Very nicely built heats up in half time as my other one
Review Title: Wow! | Review by Icare301
We bought this appliance in December 2014 and are really impressed with all the features, Cooktop and oven. Super fat heating, excellent temperature control and very easy to use (we like the controls that light up the next button that should be activated).
Review Title: Induction oven | Review by cav3
Only had for about a month but so far so good. Nice stove.
Review Title: New to induction | Review by ButterflyHarley
I've had this range for six months now and now I love it. I was new to induction and previously had an electric smooth top range. I spent a good month of frustration due to the poor quality skillets I had purchased. I finally bought Le Creuset hard anodized skillets and turned my cooking experience around :) The cooktop heats so fast and evenly. I love the warming zone also! The cooktop is so easy to clean and it is beautiful! The touch controls are nice and control the temp very quickly. The oven seems to heat a bit slowly but the temp is accurate and has helped me to produce some fantastic baked goods. I am SO glad I chose this oven instead of converting to gas. I just love it!
Review Title: This range is incredible! | Review by Buttercup650
We installed this range about 3 weeks ago, and I am so happy with the appearance and performance. I love that this range is all metal and glass; no plastic controls! The induction cooktop is incredible. The controls are intuitive and simple to use. Water boils much quickly on this cooktop, compared to a regular electric radiant cooktop. The cooktop is super easy to keep clean. I love having the very fine and responsive temperature control. It heats very evenly; I am able to make the most perfect pancakes! I've used the oven several times too, and it meets with my approval. Love, love, love this range.
Review Title: Getting used to Induction cooking | Review by Pcalde
We just downsized into a condo with a smaller kitchen. Both of us like to cook, there wasn't access to gas, and we wanted efficiency. Induction was the answer! It is interesting how efficiently it cooks, how quickly things heat, and how you have to adjust your cooking habits. The stove is well made, does what it's supposed to do, and is the best of the induction stoves we examined. Our concern is durability, given the electronic control panel and the induction system, which although used for many years in Europe is just being adopted in the USA.
Review Title: Haven't Even Begun to Use All the Features | Review by TheBigO
Bought this a few months ago, and we've barely scratched the surface of what it can do. I've always preferred gas cooktops to electric because of the control that it gives, but that wasn't an option in our new house, so we decided to bite the bullet and go for an induction cooktop. It took some getting used to, since there's no flame to see and we didn't know how to calibrate the available settings to what we were used to, but we're getting the hang of it now. Love the ability to boil water rapidly, and the controls are pretty precise. Not having a hot cooktop is nice, too. As far as the oven is concerned, we've only used it for broiling so far, and it does a good job at that. Haven't done anything with the convection features or any of the fancier features, so can't comment on those yet. Bottom line is that, I'd still prefer to have a gas cooktop, but, compared to standard electric cooktops, this was definitely the right choice for us.
Review Title: top heats fast, easy to clean | Review by believe
I purchased this several months ago and am enjoying the sleek lines and easy use. The oven is large and this is great but it is a bit low. Why don't you make the two oven model with the convection top.
Review Title: Beyond words | Review by grandma6xs
This slide in induction range replaced a 5year old duel fuel Kenmore range that quite working on Thanksgiving day (electronic quite again). Altho I've used gas for the better part of 40 years, I was talked into the duel fuel when we remodeled. Didn't like the electric oven -- took way too long to pre-heat. I love EVERYTHING about this range. It's sleek looking, stainless very easy to keep clean, cook top also easy to clean and yesterday I cooked a bottom round roast using the probe and it was the most tender, moist roast I have ever cooked. And it cooked fast. There is a learning curve with this induction range but I use the number pads as I did when cooking with gas. (My husband used the flame height so he's having a harder time) We also had to purchase new induction compatible cookware and what a difference that makes too. Pans heat evenly and are extremely easy to clean. This stove goes with us if ever we have to move or I'll give it to one of my children. So far, GOOD JOB GE. My only complaint is the owners manual lists some features (slow cook, pizza) that aren't included with this model and wish they were but can work around.
Review Title: Love it! | Review by Omie
. My GE induction is divine. I don't burn myself wiping up spills any more. My tea water boils before I can get the tea bag in the cup, and if I forget to turn off the stove top it turns itself off when I remove the pot. The oven is fine and the computer buttons are easy to follow. Very user friendly. Clean-up of the stove top is easier than a gas top , but you need a lot of paper towels and elbow grease to get rid of steaks and have to be sure to wipe of the crema before it dries. I did buy the cleaning kit from GE parts , but it is expensive compared to products at the supermarket. On the whole I am really pleased.
Review Title: Works as expected | Review by Meperiod
Bought this unit as a part of a kitchen remodel. There is a learning curve, but the cook top is as responsive as a gas cooktop.
Review Title: Iduction stove/oven | Review by cindy24
I had been waiting for the full Induction stove for several years. I have a Pullman type kitchen with little room to spare for the full size gas range, and wall ovens. My last range/oven was the best of both worlds. Not only did I have a warming zone, but also a bridge unit of 2 of the burners, and a second oven, tho small could bake up to 400. With the main oven, my GE microwave/oven, and the 2nd small oven, there was no meal I couldn't make. I do like that the warming zone on my stove is user friendly ( doesn't need to be induction), but I find the other elements missing, and wonder why that is. I love to cook, and tho it isn't my only interest, I do find it the most gratifying.
Review Title: Best Stove Ever! | Review by amt1637
I love how easy it is to clean the stove top and how well the induction cooktop cooks. The oven cooks foods fantastic, I finally enjoy cooking. The oven cleans better than anything I have ever had. Love it! Love it!
Review Title: First glass top | Review by Hillbill
Over all very pleased with range.The bottom warming is a big hit with my wife. I hope this GE lasts as long as our last GE range of 20 years.
Review Title: The Bomb | Review by Squicket
This is the bomb !!! This oven is great for cooking meat just plug in the thermostat and check the meat temperature. Didn't mind the fact that I had to purchase new cookware to cook on the induction cook top. This will also really save on the electric bill too. And it looks really great in my kitchen. Now is all I have to do is purchase my new fridg. and new dishwasher and I will be set... Love my GE Profile Series have them in both homes and they always look nice many years later.
Review Title: Looks great | Review by GEMacomb
Just got the stove installed this last weekend, look great and works great. I will continue to post as we use it more.
Review Title: We like everything! | Review by Kbtnpks
Easy to use and great to cook with. The convection oven and warming drawer are both excellent.
Review Title: Love the Features and the Precise Controls | Review by BnBinAlpine
I am VERY impressed with the induction cooktop, both the speed at which it can heat at and the very precise temperature controls - better than gas and no comparison at all to the typical electric. And super easy to keep clean since spills don't get baked onto the glass.
Review Title: Love how it cooks | Review by caretakr
My area does not have gas service and I was not happy with the standard electric stove so I opted for the induction stove which I had seen in Europe. I am very happy that I did. Now I'm cooking with gas, only it is electric
Review Title: I love this range | Review by luvtherange
The induction is unbelievably fast and the range is incredibly efficient. Best purchase I have made in a long time. I do not want to ever go without induction and this incredible range.
Review Title: Beautiful Range | Review by ronron59
I purchased this range 5 months ago. Very surprised and pleased at the increased cooking surface area due to not having a backsplash. Very large oven interior and really like the porcelain coated oven racks, love the sliding rack. I especially like that the glass cooktop doesn't get hot enough to burn on foods as my previous cooktop did. I like the controls in the front, however, you do have do be careful not to accidently touch the edge with your body or it will activate the controls. My only disappointment is that it does not cook as fast as the previous induction model.
Review Title: Induction cooking | Review by Cmd53
We've just finished our new kitchen and our new range is the best part of our kitchen. The speed and control of cooking is amazing! It's amazing how fast you can boil water, much faster than gas and it took forever with a standard electric stove. This was the best purchase we made in our appliance shopping.
Review Title: The Best of the Best | Review by TMcKee
When we moved into our home, we needed an oven. We chose this. Thank goodness we chose this particular range. I have always trusted GE and this cemented that. It cooks and bakes perfectly and yet I am always the star at dinner parties. Thank you, GE!
Review Title: Hooked on Induction | Review by cjax102310
Induction stove & oven both work very well - quick, even cooking with great control
Review Title: Incredibly responsive | Review by eca333
This induction range is incredibly responsive to changes in temperature, and the oven heats quickly and accurately. Although I am very happy with the product, I wish I had known that it makes a rather loud buzzing/ticking sound while heating, on some burners more than others. I do wish this were minimized.
Review Title: Love the Induction | Review by luvourGE
Had an induction cooktop before and moved to a new home were we had to replace the existing range with another induction appliance. We were actually planning to purchase a different brand but after comparing the two models we chose the GE. We just love the features this GE range offers.
Review Title: Super safe and simple | Review by DVMs
The cook top is excellent both in look and function. You'll always have perfectly cooked meats with the automatic thermometer.
Review Title: INDUCTION IS THE FUTURE | Review by Leftybydesign
I realize that induction stove tops have been available in Europe for many years but I had never heard of the technology until I needed to be looking for a new stove. I was replacing an electric stove/oven and because of our location, gas was not an option. When I first heard about induction, I kept wondering, why hasn't this been a thing here? Maybe it's not as great as the hype. So I did the research, saw only great reviews and thought let's try this. It is revolutionary! I now have to show everybody who comes over to the house how it works. I love it! It does take a bit of getting used to. I burned a few things in the beginning because I didn't recognize how quickly it heated the pan. It's only three months old, still a new stove with plenty of time for things to go wrong but as of this writing, the stove is pleasing to look at and seems to be well built.
Review Title: Love it! | Review by ockergirl
Wow. We love this induction cooktop/convection oven. The cooktop is the closest thing you will get to gas, which I love. Just takes a little getting used to the settings. Cooks quickly and beautifully. Cook top is easy to clean, just make sure you have the control lock on before you clean the control panel. I use the enclosed Cerama-Bryte. Oven is true convection and is wonderful for baking.
Review Title: Excellent induction cooking!! | Review by Lovetoeat
This stove has it all: induction burners, convection oven, warming drawer, warming burner. I love love love it!
Review Title: Glad for the purchase! | Review by dnight
I have had this stove for a week and love it. Easy to clean, heats up so fast, keeps the kitchen cool. I did buy new Calphalon pots and pans and love those too. Not sure yet about gaining any time with the convection oven, but so far what I have baked has turned out well. Expensive, but I think it will be worth the cost.
Review Title: GE Profile induction slide-in range | Review by 1Happycamper
This is the greatest, best and most wonderful stove I have ever had. The temperatures on the stove top are consistent whatever temperature I select. I haven't burned anything as the name of the game seems to be start low and raise the temperature one "click" at a time. The oven is spacious and the baking temperatures are correct for all types of baking. Broiling is a pleasure with minimal splatter. Having done my homework before choosing this particular manufacturer induction slide-in range really paid off. My enthusiasm over this range convinced a friend to purchase the same one and she is doing back flips. What a pleasure using such a well made piece of equipment.
Review Title: Beautiful range, cooks really fast | Review by Hugo
Where we live there is no gas so I decided on the next best thing-induction
Review Title: Still Adapting | Review by Duxgirl
Bought this oven just over a month ago. I'm having a tough time adapting to convection, but time will tell. Positives, a big solid stove, great oven space area. Fits three big pans all at once. The shelves are a dream, easy slide. Biggest negative..I am constantly turning OFF the oven and burners when I use the microwave above. The digital controls are way too touchy and turn off when lightly bumped. I have always had a grey grained glass cooktop. A negative for this model, every thing shows on the solid black top.
Review Title: Souped up range! | Review by dalepenn
After a lot of research I knew I wanted an induction cooktop, a true European convection oven and a warming drawer. This is one of a few ranges on the market that have all three, and it was a brand new model. The performance of this range have far exceeded my expectations. The cooktop brings a 5 quart pan of water for pasta to a boil in about 5 minutes and boils water for tea in a little over 1 minute. I prefer this to gas for safety reasons, and controlling the cooking temp is even superior to gas IMHO. I had convection before but it doesn't compare to this oven. From baking a delicate salmon to roasting and using the temperature probe, the results are dramatically better than my previous convection oven. The warming drawer gets a work-out every all of the time. It's wonderful for warming plates before serving, keeping a meal warm for family members who are stuck late at work or for making everything magically appear at the table, hot and fresh for a dinner party.
Review Title: Induction cooking is a disappointment. | Review by WaltA
In general, it is a good, well made, range. However, I am disappointed in how GE designed its induction cooktop.
Review Title: Excellent Introduction to Induction Cooking | Review by Godot
Installed for 2 weeks in a new kitchen remodel, its been interesting using an induction cooktop after 25 years using gas. It is super-responsive to changes in the burner settings. Brought 2 gallons of water from 65 degrees to a full boil in 10 minutes on the powerboil burner. I also used the temp probe to make Thanksgiving turkey and it turned out perfectly. We also gave the warming drawer a workout and it is a great feature. Finally, we love the look of this slide-in range, especially with a matching GE Profile convection microwave mounted above it.
Review Title: I'm in love! | Review by Munchabunch
Best Christmas present ever! I�ve had it for four days now and I�ve used both the top and oven every day. I couldn�t be happier. My old stove was electric and I think it was somehow connected to a nuclear power plant. The temperatures on all burners eventually ended up in a hard boil. The temperature control on my GE induction is heaven sent. The interior of the oven is huge and it�s the first I�ve ever had with three racks. The extension rack is an added bonus to functionality. I love everything about this stove. It�s beautiful to look at and it�s quality throughout. I�m showing my age here, but I told my husband that I feel like Queen for a Day when I use it.
Review Title: Great features | Review by pissac
Beautiful design, impressive look, matches to our kitchen. Induction plates heats up instantly, very safe to use, the surface does not get hot/ warm and is child safe product. Baking unit is spacious with 6 rakes. Has all the feature for baking. This product will definitly uses less electricity.
Review Title: Like everything about it. | Review by charham
I am really enjoying using my new range. Easy to keep looking brand new. Cooks really fast. Haven't tried the warming oven yet. Have learned that all induction pans are not created equal. You'll have to experiment to see which brand works fastest.
Review Title: Beware of height issue | Review by Debbie789
I have standard cabinets which are 34.5. I purchased quartz which is standard of 1.25 as granite is. This is 35.75 height. The minimum height for this range is 36. The only way to use this range is to either have custom cabinets made a little higher or get formica countertops.
Review Title: Excellent range | Review by Sewlane
Used every day and find it really great to cook on. Takes a little getting used to but once you learn how to use it I fine it the best thing I have bought for the kitchen ever. Only problem I have is that with my all-clad roasting pan due to the concave bottom it is hard to make gravy. Any ideas out there as to make this pan work?
Review Title: My Favorite Oven EVER | Review by marysue
I bought this and had it installed the week before Thanksgiving. I was a little nervous, but Thanksgiving dinner was a breeze - the warming drawer was a favorite feature that day and many times since. The touch controls are very responsive, and I love that the heat turns off immediately!
Review Title: Induction cooktop | Review by RJTobin
Wonderful example of spectacular cooking process. Induction cooking surface is excellent but takes a bit of getting used too because it heats so fast. Proper cookware is critical.
Review Title: Awesome Stove | Review by breez44
I absolutely love my induction range. I had a smooth top range and built in oven before my kitchen remodel. I hardly eve used the range because it took so long to heat up, but I loved how clean the top always was. This new induction range heats up quick, cooks consistently and I still have that clean top. It's Beautiful!
Review Title: Induction cooktop rocks! | Review by pagmiller2
No gas service in our vacation condo, so induction was the only way to get instant heat changes, which this cooktop provides in spades. Other useful features include a non-induction warming area at the back of the cooktop and a handy two-piece oven rack that extends easily on rollers (rather than sliding out). One disappointment is that the convection oven only works with baking, not with roasting or broiling. As well, the warming tray underneath the oven (where you would normally store the broiler pan) is too low to be much use, so is now being used to store the broiler pan. Very sleek design and excellent controls with a "what button you need to push next" featureBut it's the induction cooktop that really makes this appliance stand out.
Review Title: GE Profile induction Range | Review by JohnMcG
We've had the GE Profile Induction range over three months now and couldn't be happier with the purchase. You must use induction ready cookware with stovetop. We got the Cuisinart Multiclad Pro set and it works great with this range. When cooking on the top, foods heat very quickly and then can be kept at the level you like by adjusting the touchpad. So much faster and better than our old GE electric. In addition the stove top stays cool and cleanup is a breeze. No baked-on goods. My wife LOVES the warming drawer. It works fantastic and eliminates microwaving foods to reheat. All in all we love this range and since my wife really wanted a gas range before gettign this, the fact that this range makes her happy is terrific. It's more expensive than other electrics but WELL worth the price. ! You will love it !
Review Title: Love the induction top. | Review by RJTobin
Induction requires a bit of a change in from how you've been cooking in the past. Everything happens faster and requires a bit of time to accommodate the change. Ferrous pots and pans are required which wasn't an issue for us but could be a costly investment if you don't have.
Review Title: Lots of good features. | Review by Ray42
Very pleased with the performance. One problem with it is the controls can be accidentally activated when you lean on them or are cleaning them.
Review Title: Takes some getting used to but is growing on us .. | Review by GJT_R
We bought the Range during a complete kitchen remodel. We did not have gas available and we wanted a high quality appliance. We knew that most of our 30 year old pots and pans would not work. The one's that were magnetic worked, but not very efficiently, some took longer to heat up than our old coil electric. We also had a problem with the touch pad, the controls for the left rear coil did not work. This said, now that we have several All Clad D5 sauce pans and we have learned the controls, we both really like the range. We find the glass top gets dirty easily, but we also find that it is very easy to clean. I love the fact that the heating levels are accurately repeatable. Boil the Brown Rice on High (about 45 - 60 seconds) lower to 4, 45 minutes perfect rice. I highly recommend this GE appliance and would purchase it again.
Review Title: Great range except for the touch pad. | Review by lcp81
I noticed the touch pad was not working properly soon after installation. The display for the largest unit on the induction cooktop only showed the bottom half of the numbers. I also had difficulty setting the timer. The "button" was very touchy. I was disappointed with these problems given the price of the range. This seemed to have slipped by the quality control. The appliance store where I purchased the range did fix the problem, but it took well over a month, because they initially ordered the wrong part. The new touch pad is working fine so far. I am enjoying learning to cook with induction and the convection oven is very nice. I use the warming drawer often with large meals.
Review Title: FUN | Review by SUZANNY
I HAVE BEEN USING MY NEW SLIDE IN INDUCTION COOKTOP AND RANGE FOR 6 MONTHS, AND EVERY EXPERINCE HAS BEEN A LEARNING EXPERIENCE, FUN AND FUNNY. I AM USED TO GAS COOKTOPS, WHICH RESPOND QUICKLY, BUT MY INDUCTION COOKTOP SEEMS TO REACT AT LIGHTNING SPEED. I HAVE MADE SOME MISTAKES, AND SO HAS MY HUSBAND [SPAGHETTI SAUCE ALL OVER]; WE LAUGH, LEARN AND KEEP ON COOKING. WE ARE ENJOYING THE WARMING DRAWER TOO.
Review Title: Great looking, produces great results. | Review by JP58
Purchased as a Christmas present to my wife and me. Replaced a 12 year-old non-GE, good quality, smooth-top free standing range. We wanted a range with the controls on the front, no reaching over boiling pots. Very pleased that this installed without needing a back filler. Looks very elegant & high-end. FYI -the installation guide states the unit won't sit down low enough for our 35 7/8" high counters, min counter height is listed as 36", but it adjusted down to fit with no problems. Induction top is amazingly powerful and extremely easy to regulate, the setting adjustments are fine enough to make it simple to hold whatever heat level you want. Anything you've ever heard about induction cooktops is true. We purchased an inexpensive single element countertop induction unit (1800 watts) to see what we thought about induction before buying this range. We thought induction worked pretty slick but with the much more powerful wattage on this range's cooktop it takes it to a whole new level. Forget radiant electric or gas once you work with induction for a bit. I had read reviews complaining about noise from induction cooktops but I've only noticed noise from the cookware, not the cooktop - cheap pans seem to make a bit of noise but no more than our old radiant cooktop made cycling on and off so that has been no issue at all. I appreciate the controls, seem well designed - for example, when you select an oven function, the keypad lights up the keys you need to hit next, temp setting for example - very intuitive. I also like the fact that when you turn on an element or the oven the indicators for that are red vs. green for other non-cooking functions, easy to see at a glance if you have anything turned on. We've also been very pleased with the oven. Previous oven worked fine but didn't have things like a chime to let you know the oven had reached the set temp and was slow to reach a setting. This range heats quickly and does chime to let you know it is at temp. The roller sliding rack was something I was insisting on, tired of struggling to drag a heavy pot or turkey out of the old oven. My wife cooked up a batch of chocolate muffins that we have been making for years on the old range with surprisingly better results. This range bakes better without using convection than our old range did with convection. We're very pleased. The old range is in the garage and is on its way to be donated to our local affordable housing authority - it has always worked as intended but the difference with how much better this GE range is pretty amazing.
Review Title: Not as perfect as I expected | Review by bridgewife
Two months...absolute perfection. Now the stove is randomly turning off during use. I have a service call tomorrow to replace the control panel under warranty and hope this takes care of it. I recommend the extended warranty although I don't believe in them as a rule...the electronics are just a bit complex and prone to act up.
Review Title: Induction rules! | Review by Sandy87
Had planned to replace our glass top electric cooktop with gas but then a salesman at the appliance store showed us a demo of induction. My husband was immediately sold and after doing a little more research, so was I. We have had it for about one month and I love everything about it. It's so fast - both to heat up and cool down. You have to be ready to cook when you turn on the burner! It has taken me a little while to get used to how fast it responds to changing the temperature. Love that the cleanup is so easy, no more scrubbing off cooked on food! The oven is very large and works great. Also happy to finally have a warming drawer. Beautiful!
Review Title: Induction Oven | Review by japatel3
This range and oven work well, however the controls are easily turned off when reaching across to a pot or pan on the range. I love how quickly the elements get hot and how easy it is to control temperature. Sice I cannot use gas this is a great alternative, just change the control location!
Review Title: Great cooktop | Review by Galima
Bought this range to slide in existing countertop and cold not be happier. We were a bit uneasy about some reviews complaining about induction cooking but have found nothing bad at all. In fact the cooking experience is greatly improved. We did have to replace a few All Clad items as they were not compatible but the replacement All Clad stainless is fabulous - can cook on low temperature - no clicking some other reviewers complained about. If you are looking for a great cooktop and oven this is definitely one to consider.
Review Title: put it to a test | Review by susi
The day after it was installed I baked two loaves zucchini bread and canned eight pints of sweet corn. Everything turned out well.
Review Title: good buy | Review by ann651
Very happy with my stove. Heats water fast and cooks very hot compared to my old electric stove. Easy to clean. Took some adjustment to using the stove because of how hot it would get.
Review Title: Induction cooking is the best! | Review by SaturdayWarrior
We love induction cooking! The immediate response and precise temperature control is similar to gas. We were amazed at how quickly a 6 qt pot of water came to a boil. Spills just wipe up and do not bake on like they did on my smoothtop. The oven is large enough for 4 loaves of bread and they bake evenly. I haven't tried the convection option or the temperature probe, so I can't rate them. The warming drawer gets rather warm without turning it on whenever you use the oven. I was pleased to learn the warming drawer is removable making it easy to access anything that rolls under the range. I love the all glass control panel because the settings won't blister as it ages. I wish you could add to the timer. Instead you have to cancel the time and then reset it. The unit came with a universal manual that did not distinguish between induction and smoothtops and there were no instructions on convection cooking. The top back of the unit is rounded making it difficult for a DIY installation to look professional. Overall, we are very, very happy with our purchase.
Review Title: Attractive but tricky | Review by nogas1
Bought and installed our new induction slide in in April 2014. Love the look and quality of our new range. Cleans up so nice. Purchased because we loved to cook with gas but the burners were melting our over head microwave and surrounding overhead cabinet doors. The induction does act like gas in how quickly it heats up, but the large burner on the right front does not heat up unless a huge pot is used, making this burner somewhat useless. The only time we will use it is when we are canning and using our large kettle. It says you can center a slightly smaller (than the pattern) pan but we have not been able to make it work that way, bummer, especially since it is a front burner.
Review Title: High Maintenance! | Review by Jemstone
Need to clean the ceramic top after each use even if you only use one burner because food/water spots could hit other areas. Must use special cleaners which cost more money. Pots/pans have to be the right size for each burner or it doesn't work--limit flexibility.
Review Title: GE has met expections with their new induction. | Review by lnichols
After waiting several months for the release of this stove, I am happy to say we are not disappointed. We had been reading about induction for sometime and my husband and I decided GE was the right decision to compliment our new kitchen. The three shelves in the oven work great with convection and allow cooking of several items a once. We had already done the tiling and counter and were hoping this oven had the built in fill at the back and it did. No modifications were needed. Fits just right with the adjustable legs. We did not have to put in the stabilizer clamp provided. As others comment, the water boils significantly faster that with my prior electric range and the warming drawer works like a champ. The only negative is the plain solid black top. To keep the top looking sparkly, it does require using the cleaning product after each use or any moisture left from wiping up a spill or spatter with a clean dish cloth or paper towel shows up.
Review Title: We named her 'Bella'! | Review by Bridgewife
We are very pleased with the new range. Looks so elegant (see above) and performs powerfully. Only issue is that the oven is SO powerful it can be a challenge when you open it (waves of massive heat)...and the induction cooktop took some getting used to as far as underestimating its power to rapidly boil. Now we are used to it, we really appreciate cooking with such a light touch. If we move we'll be taking Bella with us!
Review Title: Best decision! | Review by marysews
Stove top is the best unit I have ever used. Simmer is beautifully low, boils so fast, and med is good too. I did a lot of research before buying and I can recommend this unit without hesitation.
Review Title: Induction cooktop is all that I imagined! | Review by charlie22
I bought this a month ago and love the quick efficient induction cooktop The oven can be automatically set for convection easily without calculating temperature change, it does if for you and works!! The broiler works great but note the outerperimeter rings do not glow but work, the reason being they are higher resistance but are working. This was checked through the manufacturer's engineers but is just not noted in the booklet. Love it!
Review Title: LOVE IT | Review by grandma6xs
This induction range replaced a dual fuel Kenmore range. I've cooked with gas for over 40 years and thought I'd really miss it. I don't. This range is perfect and very easy to keep the glass top clean. Had to spend extra dollars for induction compatable cookware, but it was worth it. My only complaint is with the control for the warming burner. It is placed in such a way that when reaching for a pot or pan the back burner, it can be turned on. I've recommended that it be locked separately until ready to use, or turn the control button upside down. Minor flaw in an otherwise exceptional range.
Review Title: Clean and efficient! | Review by NorthwestFoodie
I purchased this stove in January 2014 and never knew that I could like a stove so much!! It is fast, easy to clean, and efficient. The burners heat very quickly and evenly. The convection oven bakes and broils evenly as well. I am very happy with this stove. I have had electric burner and gas ranges, and this induction range has them both beat.
Review Title: Great features | Review by beachbabe1
Love the stove but have to get use to cooking on an induction stove. Big energy saver.
Review Title: Looks Great and works Great | Review by theEagle
I bought this 2 months ago and I couldn't be happier. It looks great,works great!
Review Title: Excellent. | Review by SCW49
Instant on and off. Energy efficient. Only minus is pot size must nearly match burner size. This makes the largest burner, in the front, not very useful.
Review Title: High Tech! | Review by Whynickname
We've had this unit about a month now and find it very pleasing to use. The surface requires frequent cleaning since it is so shiny.

Review Title: Great Stove | Review by wphrd
The best electric stove ever! Holds the temperature, easy cleaning. I wasn't sold on induction, I went along with my husband's preference and I love it now! I had such good service with my first GE appliance I went with all GE profile appliances in my new house. Now we are "flipping" another house and will only buy GE from now on. Good product, great company for customer service. This is worth a lot to me!
Review Title: Totally worth replacing all of my cookware! | Review by Bridgewife
One of the high points of our kitchen overhaul drama. Elegant, powerful, competent and technologically cool, this stove is a pleasure to cook with. I grew up on gas and wished I could have it where I am now, but no longer...I am a convert to induction!
Review Title: New to induction cooking | Review by DrLinda67
Excited about trying to learn how to cook with this induction stove. Unfortunately, one of the burner was not working at installation and service man placed a new unit on order.
Review Title: GE Profile Induction Stove is Fantastic! | Review by Cooks_of_Wirth
We love induction cooking. We used to have a gas JennAir before moving to Florida. We hated the old electric stove in our FL home, so archaic. We remodeled the kitchen and went GE Profile for the stove and micro. We chose induction since gas was not an option and oh so glad we did. How great! Highly recommend these products. Induction is better than gas. Happy cooking to anyone who chooses Profile!

Review Title: Great range | Review by Coff62
Bought two months ago and simply enjoy it. Induction is fast and great response to temperature changes, better than gas. Oven is fantastic too, very even heat and fast. Overall easy to keep clean, a step up from our previous gas range.
Review Title: Beat my expectations | Review by hsross
The performance of this stove is incredible. I've never used induction before, but I doubt I'll ever use anything else.
Review Title: Induction cooking | Review by kesslel
I bought this a month ago and love it. Induction cooking is wonderful
Review Title: Love this stove | Review by jcook22
I was skeptical about an electric stove- I always wanted a gas one. We could not put one in our new kitchen and I am glad I got this one. Phenomenal features.
Review Title: Good looking | Review by Opinionated
I love this range! It has sleek lines and fits perfectly in the cabinets giving a built in look. Induction cooking is so sensible. I've always used gas and when we moved to an area where gas was not an option I went with induction and am so pleased. It's fast, cool and easy. The entire unit cleans easily. The oven is large. The racks slide smoothly and are forgiving of splatters since they are a dark grey. Great product!
Review Title: Great range! | Review by JJTHK
We installed this range a month ago. We are thrilled with how quickly the stove top heats when cooking, and how quickly it responds to changing the temperature. The convection oven works great. No issues with hot air blowing on you like you read about for other models of slide in ranges.
Review Title: Very happy with performance of this range | Review by RBSteichen
Replaced a coil electric range with this and it is the best move I could have made. Heats quick and truly seems more responsive than gas. Do not have option for gas where I live now and was missing it terribly....now don;t miss it all. Would have gone 5 stars except that the touch pad front gets triggered when wiping with a cloth. Of course, being induction nothing heats up if there is no pan on stove but it just seems they could have built in a device to either not "false sense" or a simple disable to touch pads for cleaning. Really more of a nuisance that just needs a little more thought and I'd still take this range over electric coil type in a heartbeat.
Review Title: Cooks great | Review by Marty22
So far everything is cooking well. I had a service call for denting at delivery which was fixed promptly. I read that the induction top might have loud noises as it works but mine hums along quietly! I have many features which I have not tried yet so cannot comment on them. I keep the lock on at all times I am not cooking because it turns on easily with touch.
Review Title: Beautiful and Smart | Review by DavaoJoe
The range has been installed for only 2 days, and I have cooked only one dinner on it (Lasagna from scratch), but I'm completely happy with the product so far. The surface units are flexible and responsive and the oven works well. There are many features I'm anxious to try and I look forward to a beautiful relationship with this stove.
Review Title: I love induction cooing. | Review by Suef
I love the induction cooktop. It�s fast even heat and so easy to keep clean. I live in Florida and I like that only the pan gets hot, not the cooktop. I cook turkeys during the winter and like using the temperature probe in the oven. (I have not tried the temperature probe on my new oven but used a GE temperature probe in the past.) The timer sound is not loud enough even at its loudest setting.
Review Title: Impressive Range | Review by cline
This was just installed yesterday. It is very elegant. I love the sleek look. The controls are fairly intuitive and are easy to see. No reaching over a hot pot to use the controls. The cooktop overlaps the countertop giving the counter a seamless quality. You cannot believe how fast the pans heat up and how quickly they respond when you lower the heat setting. I was thrilled that the oven has a built in meat thermometer. It comes with a probe and the oven will shut off when the meat reaches temp. Cool!
Review Title: Switched from Gas to Induction - Love it | Review by Kimthecook
I was skeptical about switching from gas to an induction cook top. Did my homework and made the switch. I actually have more control with the induction. A simmer is a true simmer and a boil is a true boil. Very efficient; easy to clean. Another huge benefit is it does not heat up my kitchen like the the gas cook top did. The convection oven is precise and bakes like a dream. P.S. I have two homes with the G.E. Profile series. One is gas, and I like it but I'm so happy I purchased the induction for my main residence!
Review Title: The best stove buy I have ever made . | Review by Bev1
First off I am 76 years old so I think I can say this stove is remarkable. Less heat to cook food. Pans easy to wash after using . I cook on paper towels To keep stove top clean. Just the best stove ever. My husband is even impressed.. Thanks GE
Review Title: So far so good | Review by jboy08
Took over a month to receive this range, guess it's just that new or in demand. Quality is great, and installation wasn't too hard. Only advice I could give is to definitely pay attention to the height of your counter tops to ensure the glass top clears them. Bought this for the looks, past experience with GE Profile products and the safety of having an induction range with kids running around the house. Boils water like a champ, but I wish the included meat thermometer was a little longer. Overall we love this product.
Review Title: First Induction stove - AWESOME! | Review by Ramboorider
We've only had this range for a week or so, so I can't speak to reliability or durability, but I can talk about the performance. I've never used an induction cooktop before. I love gas but hate the cleanup and don't really like normal electric glass cooktops - stuff really cooks onto the surface. This stove was a revelation. It's every bit as quick and direct as gas, but I think even more powerful, because the heat is coming through the entire bottom of the pan, not just where the flame hits. I put on a can of soup on the high setting, turned around to do something at the sink, heard a suspicious sound, turned around, and the soup was at a full boil. Maybe two minutes - amazing. And then I turned it down to a simmer and it dropped off of the boil instantly. My wife is still moving pots off of the burner out of habit - I'm trying to convince her she doesn't need to. And if food spills on the burners, it doesn't cook on, so cleanup is incredibly easy.
Review Title: I am happy I decided on the induction top instead | Review by ElliesMimi
I bought this oven 2 months ago and so far I love it. The induction is so fast you'd better have everything ready. It cools down quick so you can clean it immediately if needed. The oven works great and I really love using the temperature probe, I have not had to clean it yet so I can't comment on that feature but overall I am very satisfied.

Review Title: Love this Range! | Review by SusanC
After much research, I decided to buy the Profile induction range for my new kitchen. It has lived up to my expectations. The cooktop heats faster than gas and I love the number settings. Depending on what I am cooking, I know exactly what setting to use. The oven is wonderful for baking.
Review Title: Fantastic Induction | Review by Cookers2
We had gas before but it is not available for us now. The induction is fantastic and would recommend it for anyone use to cooking with gas.
Review Title: Great Features | Review by anahsskcor
I bought this stove about 4 months ago, I love, love this stove! Have never had a issue with cook time being off on my oven like other ranges I have bought.
Review Title: So far so good! | Review by jboy08
Took over a month for delivery, retailer blaming GE not being able to keep up with demand. Who knows if it's true, but when it was delivered I realized it was well worth the wait. Looks amazing, with a clean look since the glass top hangs over the countertops. Took a while to deal with finding the right cookware, especially a quality nonstick that's induction safe. We love the lock control with our kids around, and it does a speedy job heating up. Overall it's a solid buy that balances a great price with high end looks and features.
