- Cooktops & Ranges
- Profile Cooktops
- Induction technology heats only the pan and its contents and offers energy efficiency by reducing wasted heat when compared to radiant and gas cooktops. Since there is not a traditional thermal heating element, the induction cooktop stays cooler than conventional radiant cooktops.
- In addition to a sleek, modern appearance, the GE® smoothtop cooktop quality is backed by a strong warranty. The smoothtop cooktop is built to last. The cooktop material is not glass but a highly engineered “glass-ceramic” material. It is impact- and scratch-resistant. Impact-resistant quality is confirmed by UL tests.
- Many cooks prefer a gas cooktop. Gas cooktops are legendary for their responsiveness, even heating and customized control.
- A powerful three-speed exhaust system is built into these cooktops to pull smoke and vapor out of the kitchen. With a downdraft cooktop, an additional venting system or hood is not needed.
- Coil burners provide consistent and even heat on the GE electric cooktop with a plug-in element that is removable for easy cleaning.
- GE Profile™ and GE cooktops are available with a variety of burner types and configurations. Here are a few of our best!
>Dual-Flame Stacked Burner (gas cooktops)-This unique design includes two burners stacked one on top of the other: a PowerBoil™ burner with 18,000 BTUs for accelerated boiling, paired with a precise simmer for gentle 140° simmering.
>Precise Simmer Burner (gas cooktop)- When turned to the lowest setting, this burner delivers a low 140° temperature for sauces and delicate foods.
>Simmer Option (electric cooktop)- Burners with this option maintain a 140° temperature, and “Simmer” is incorporated on the control graphics, making it easy to set the control.
>12-inch, dual, and tri-ring elements (electric cooktops)- Multiple cooking areas in one accommodate various-sized pots or pans.
>Melt and Simmer Options- Melt option is optimized for melting chocolate. Simmer is ideal for making delicate sauces or melting butter and will ensure a food-safe temperature of at least 140°F. The words “Melt” and “Simmer” are incorporated on the control graphics.
