Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Will Never Go Back

9/23/2018

Ive had my GE Induction 5 burner cooktop for almost 2 1/2 years and LOVE it It heats very quickly the heat level is quickly and minutely adjustable and it is SOO easy to clean as nothing ever burns on. I will never go back to either gas my preference for cooking before induction or a smooth top electric my preference for clean-up before induction. I also believe it is much safer with kids or elderly than any other cooktop option. It is not inexpensive but is worth every penny.

Perfection

7/30/2018

We undertook a major remodel including our kitchen. I was vacillating on gas vs induction cooktop. Gas is the current in choice but I hate the hassle of cleaning a grated cooktop. I finally pulled the trigger and went with this induction cooktop. It has been a year and a half and I am thankful every night I cook dinner that I made the choice I did. The induction cooktop is a dream to cook on and clean up. Absolutely love it.

Extremely Fast and consistent cooking

7/28/2018

Once youve cooked on induction youll never go back to gas. Its faster than gas for heating up and boiling water. This applies especially at 7600 feet where we live. Clean up is amazing. When you cook something greasy just cover the cooktop with paper towels cook and throw them away when done. No mess no fuss

Its a keeper...

4/19/2018

We actually bought by mistake but once we had it installed...WOW Its like having a gas stove top heat on the pan now but without the flame. We truly love the functionality of the stove top. Whether its having an elderly parent who tends to leave items on the stove top or a little kid who likes to reach this stove top protects those people. The ability to lock the stove top is nice feature. As well the induction aspect allows only the spot where the pan is to get warm/hot We ended up having to buy new cookware for the induction aspect of the stove top but it has been well worth it. Cook times seem to be a little faster but we are adjusting to the speed at which heat reaches the pan. The top cleans off nicely

Cooks well

2/15/2018

We bought this one year ago. It heats up water faster than my microwave. I have enjoyed cooking on it. The only reason I cannot give it 5 stars is because my beloved cast iron skillets left brown stains even with a paper liner after one month of use and I cannot get them off. We no longer use the cast iron.

Ive had this for over a year it works flawlessly and it is extremely fast. I specially love the precise temperature controls the ease of cleaning the surface and how safe and energy efficient it is. I would totally recommend this cooktop to anyone changing its cooking appliances. Even if you may have to replace some pots and pans its still totally worth it.

Great Alternative to Gas

1/8/2018

We bought our Cafe 36 cooktop as part of our extensive kitchen remodel. In our location gas is not available and we cook nearly everything from scratch so cooking with an electric range is often less than optimal. Our GE Cafe 36 is amazing It cooks evenly and quickly the controls are simple it works with my favorite cast iron pots and pans and it cleans up easily and quickly. I couldnt ask for more.

Uneven cooking

12/31/2017

Weve had this about 18 months. Its easy to clean pretty when new like all glass cooktops scratches easily and it does indeed boil water quickly. That is where my praise ends. You can not use a conventional thermometer with this you have turn off the burner measure the temperature and then turn the burner back on. We tried a fancy and expensive thermometer but that only gives the surface temperature not an accurate reading. If you are doing something time sensitive this all matters. Examples include candy cheese or yogurt. Its very noisy the more burners used the louder it thrums. If you boil something over the whole cooktop shuts down. The real downside for me I saved for last. The burners do not cook evenly. You have to keep all the food to one side of the pan for the hottest part of the surface. I miss my gas range that was a pain to clean but it was easy to use and always performed well.

Looks great works great

12/27/2017

Ive been using the cooktop for a couple months now and have nothing but good things to say about it. I wanted something that would blend in with my new concrete countertops and Consumer Reports rated this very highly so I was delighted to find that it came in a gray rather than black color. It heats amazingly quickly but also adjusts temperatures very quickly. Another bonus is that because it heats so evenly virtually nothing sticks to your pots and pans. I have another induction cooktop so knew what I wanted and I think the GE Cafe model is better than the other brand I have. Definitely a recommended product.

Bridge is a disappointment

Overall were happy with this cooktop however I chose this induction top because of its bridge. The heat on the bridge is minimal so food on the edges gets cooked while items in the middle of the pan do not. We love the induction.

Wonderful compromise between gas and electric.

10/27/2017

We purchased the rest of our appliances in the Profile series but since they dont make a cooktop we purchased this from the Cafe series instead. We really like the induction cooking and have been very happy with this appliance. The heat is instantly responsive and cooks more evenly than the electric cooktops that I have used in the past. I am not comfortable with gas and my husband is not a fan of electric but we both agree the induction cooking is a great system.
