After reading the negative reviews of the GE profile gas cooktop. I needed to find a cooktop that could compliment my recent purchase of the GE profile slate appliances. I ordered both the GE profile cooktop and also this new Samsung gas cooktop. After they both arrived at my home I compared the look, style and functions of both cooktop (boxed only). The build quality, appearance and what everyone has mentioned in past reviews the distance from top of grate to top of burner. It has been mentioned in a lot of past reviews of the GE profile and cafe models that its distance from flame to pan is unacceptable causing loss of heating capability. This distance was checked on both units and the GE is about .75-1.0 inches taller than the Samsung model. Another observation was the knob design of both units. The Samsung knobs and also cooking grates are far superior to the GE model strong and robust. I would have loved to keep the GE model to compliment my complete suite of GE slate profile appliances but I decided to instal the Samsung. I need to mention that it has performed very very well. Easy to clean, heats water fast, temperature control is great, and look and styling fits perfectly with my GE slate appliances. Im so happy with the cooktop that its my favorite item I purchased for my new kitchen. Nothing negative to say about it at all. If you are planning on buying GE profile slate appliances and want a cooktop that works beautifully with them buy the Samsung. You will not be disappointed. Note: When installing the cooktop make sure you have enough space between the backsplash or down draft to accommodate the WiFi adapter. It requires a distance of about 40mm from rear edge of cooktop to backsplash. If you do not have enough space don't worry you can easily remove it to accommodate a tighter space. I have the WiFi function working but honestly I will never use it.
