GE Profile PP989DNBB Reviews & Ratings

PP989DNBB 30" Smoothtop Electric Downdraft Cooktop with 400 CFM, 3-Speed Fan, 4 Ribbon Heating Elements, Bridge Element, Hot Surface Indicators and Control Lock Capability in Black is rated 4.1954 out of 5 by 87.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent performance over the years for a hungry family! We have had this cooktop for almost 8 years and we could not be more pleased with it. I use it heavily as a full-time mom and wife, who is chief cook for 3 growing boys and a hubby who loves to eat at home. The downdraft exhaust is powerful and easily pulls steam and cooking odors out of the house. The cooktop heats very quickly and I really like the dual 6"/9" burner, which is perfect for heating my large cast iron skillet. The glass has held up well over the years and still looks great. The design can't be beat either as it looks sharp in our countertop. This cooktop was worth every penny and I fully expect to get many more years of use out of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sleek styling. Good performance I bought this cooktop when I remodeled my kitchen. It replaces an old style coil-type electric. It performs well but it is a real pain to keep clean. Whenever you fry something the spattering is all over the cooktop. You have to remove all knobs and downdraft grille to clean under and around them every single time you cook. The exhaust fan extends down so much under it that I had to butcher and rig with duct tape the ducting to fit my existing set up (also a downdraft) Your pots and pans need to have a perfectly flat bottom, otherwise they rattle noisily and rock so much when heating up the that the contents spill over.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fan of the fan I bought this unit for the downdraft feature, and that works well, as do the burners, which heat quickly and efficiently. An easier-to-clean unit would be an improvement. Knobs are close together and difficult to remove for quick wipe-ups. And I do get annoyed with appliances that require special cleaning products. Life is complicated enough -- surely the talented designers at GE can imagine a cooktop that can be cleaned beautifully with regular old cleanser or a spritz of all-purpose cleaner? Also, the other reviewers that pointed out the challenges of connecting the downdraft were not kidding. Is there a way to make this feature more accommodating to preexisting infrastructures?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to clean! This replaced a very old high end downdraft cooktop and it fit perfectly into the old spot. I love all the features and sizes of the burners. It is much easier to clean than the older model I had. After it cools off, I just use a soapy dish cloth to get most of the mess off, then I use the glass cook top cleaner as directed. It takes just minutes. If there is a hard textured burn or spill, then I first use a razor blade to scrape off the spill, then I use the glass cook top cleaner. The only disadvantage is that its hard to read the settings on each knob. I have to get out my reading glasses for that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The black looks very high end - installed in a black granite island We loved our GE Profile 30" downdraft cooktop and wanted to update the look when we had new granite countertops installed. The black cooktop looks sleek and gives the island a nice finished appearance. The down draft blower design was different than the one we replaced so we had to use some creative installation for the piping ductwork. Also, the power cord was not included with the cooktop, so we had to purchase one separately, which is disappointing, considering the price we paid for the unit. Overall, it is the best cooktop we found when comparing to other electric cooktops.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pretty, but not practical for real use I have had this cook top for 6 months and hate it more every day. Be aware that if you install this unit you may need to buy new cookware for even heating and to avoid scratches.    It is impossible to keep it clean and smudge free.  Every fingerprint, stray hair, and piece of lint shows.   You cannot clean it writh soap and water.    A simple overfow will likele require a razor blade to clean up.    It is simply not practical in a real family kitchen.  Read the manual before you make a purchase decision - there are a lot of rules and if not followed you will mar the finish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Efficient I love the cooktop and I like how the two burners can heat up simultaneously for griddle cooking. This is my second cooktop and I will have this complaint about any ceramic cooktop I purchase from no on; the issue I have is the appearance after one cooking use. I wish they would come out with cookware that doesn't leave behind scratches or a cleaner that ACTUALLY removes them. There is no cleaner that works to my standards - I've tried them all. But I will always by a ceramic cooktop and it will probably be a GE from now on. Thank you!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as my last GE cooktop Downdraft has 3 levels, but still doesn't "pull" like my last GE downdraft. I didn't get the gas downdraft for that very reason. Reviews said it didn't pull strong enough. Also the "burners" seem to be very inconsistent. I have to turn one of them up to a higher number to get the right amount of heat while another burner will heat the same pan with the same food at a much lower number. My last GE cooktop had interchangeable griddle/grill/burners and was very consistent, even after 18 years! Sometime newer isn't better.
