Customer Reviews

21 in. Glass Ceramic Electric Cooktop in Black with 2 Elements is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice solution to small space We needed a non-standard size cooktop for a small space. The wife wanted the easy-clean ceramic surface and this unit works fine and looks good. My only criticism is the responsiveness factor, for example starting out on high then backing off the heat. It seems to take inordinately long to change temperatures. Maybe it's just a matter of getting used to it and factoring that in to one's cooking...but compared to say a gas cooktop responding like a speedboat, this unit seems more like steering an ocean liner in terms of quick temp adjustments. It seems less responsive than a standard electric cooktop (non-ceramic surface type).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product..... The cooktop was just what I needed for a small apartment kitchen. Great delivery time and good quality product. I still don't understand why it has to be so expensive for something that is smaller than standard.....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product..... This small cooktop was just what I wanted and it worked out perfectly. Very quick delivery - the only slight downside is the cost is always high if it is not a standard 30" Apart from that I am delighted.
