    I had read that chefs really like the induction range so I thought I would get one. There were no reviews on this range by GE but I bought on their reputation. Having never used one, and having to purchase new cookware it has taken me 2 months to form a review. I'll start with things I don't like. First the burners don't seem to hold an even temperature. I can be heating a sauce to simmer and then element clicks and the heat drops. 2 seconds later the heat comes on to simmer, then clicks and drops off. I was expecting it to hold a closer tolerance more like a gas range. You set the flame and the temp holds. This tends to cycle on and off constantly. Very difficult to make a nice sauce that way. And the clicking gets to be real annoying after a while. Another problem is I can put the element to high to boil water. It starts to get close to breaking a boil and then the heat seems to moderate. If I back off the heat one notch from say 10 to 9 it begins to boil. Very odd. Also the time it takes to bring a pot of water to boil varies a great deal. Fill a big pasta pot with water and although quicker than gas, it seems to expend great effort to go from bubbles at the bottom of the pot to a rapid boil. And if you have a pot with maybe a gallon of water, even on the big element, it struggles to get to a roiling boil. The broiler works pretty well but does not brown evenly. There seems to be a sweet spot that is about 12 x 15 inches that browns evenly. Outside of that is a mixed bag. Other reviewers have mentioned the flimsiness of of the bottom drawer. I agree. GE service leaves much to be desired. I call them last night to discuss the range issues. The rep I talked to is nice and likely US based but has no knowledge of how the range should work. Essentially he recommended I get a tech rep out to look at it. He tried to make an appointment to get a GE person out but is unable to. I have to have a repair company come out. That person may or may not have an experience with the range. He told me to call back later and talk with someone else to see if they can get a rep out within two weeks or so. Things I like are the easy clean top. In general the elements can boil water faster than my old gas range. And the range looks good sitting there. Can I recommend? No, not really. I bought on GE's reputation but from reading reviews of other manufacturers, I would have preferred to go another way at this point. Perhaps GE will turn me a round but I don't have a lot of faith.

    Nice Induction Range

    This is my first induction range (previous gas). Induction is fast, hot, clean and does not heat up the whole kitchen. I like it. It works well. The range top is very nice, however, when you have spill overs, it can run down the sides, back or front. Clean up of the top is easy and the range top is only hot where the hot pot is touching it. The control panel is easy to clean when necessary. The only significant drawback that I found was that the burners have a minimum size for the magnetic bottoms of the pots. I was not aware of this. It would really be nice if the large burner(8") could also work with smaller pots. This problem mostlikely would be the same for all the other induction ranges that I looked at in this price category.

    Great range - one installation problem

    Installation of the power cord (GE brand cord kit) was made difficult as the knockout ring in the wire cover bracket was not able to be removed. At least not by me following the provided instructions. It seemed as if it had not been completely punched during manufacturing. That meant that the hole for the strain relief was slightly smaller and made installation of the strain relief very difficult. After much trouble I was able to get the cord and strain relief installed in the smaller hole. Love the range so far (less than a month). Induction is fast and responsive.

    Every thing about this range is great, from the large convection baking space, to the induction 5 burners and their options to the ease of operation and optional app control. We love to cook and bake and this range is an affordable power house with bells and whistles to guarantee to please.
