Those of you looking for a 30" cooktop knows they are hard to fine with 5 burners. Quality seems good, no complaints there. The problem I am having is boiling water, or cooking at high temperatures. The grates are too far away from the flame therefore the flame does not kiss the bottom on the pots/pans. I use only All Clad cookware which is heavy gauged steel and cast iron; yet I can't get a rolling boil going. I give this a "F" for performance and am looking to return this range. I went and measured similar cooktops and the average is 1" from the flame source to grate vs the 1 1/2 3/4" this range has. Buyer be ware.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Zynthiacobb Takes forever to cook
It looks beautiful but it takes forever to heat the pans, boiling water takes forever. I agree with the other reviewers that the burners are too far from the heat. I can't return mine but I would not recommend this product unless you only want it for its looks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnD Outstanding product and quality
You really get your money worth with this product.
Takes 10 minutes to install and the cook top performs great.
The large center burner is great for searing meats or heating up an 8 Qt pan of water very quickly.

We've had this range for two weeks and absolutely love it! My favorite feature is the big burner in the middle. It was very easy to install and they delivered it to our door. Great product!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by arcisme Great cooktop, if you only want one burner
The great concept of this cooktop is not realized because the only burner that works is the one in the middle, which actually works quite well. None of the other burners can be sufficiently used for cooking. I appears that the grates are too high from the flame. Even if they were closer the cooktop is too crowded and awkward to try to cook with more than one burner at a time. Save your money and look elsewhere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Zark Love this stove.
We converted our stove from electric to gas after the ceramic top cracked. It is great to be cooking with gas again. We had to run a new gas line and convert the 240v outlet to 110v, the later being easy. I had a plumber install the gas line (connections) because there was not enough capacity in the manifold to run all of the gas appliances in the house. A regulator was supplied with the stove so it was an easy install, except for running the line itself which I did..
The power burner works really well. I also like the simmer burners and how low they can be turned down. The stove has been easy to clean. I typically just wipe it down with the supplied cleaner after each use. You do have to be careful taking the grates in and out because they can scratch the stainless steel.
When converting from electric to gas we found the counter top hole was too big. We purchased a trim kit from Microtrim as shown in attached picture. Worked great.
I hate cleaning (especially around knobs) so an easy way to prevent grease splatter from hitting the knobs is to buy a cheap aluminum round pie pan and cut straight across about 1/3 of the pan. The pan slips perfectly right in front of the knobs next to the grates. When done cooking the pie pan is put away. So easy an it also keeps heat away from the knobs.
We may sell our house next year and plan to buy this stove again. We got a great price when it was on sale. Regards.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by silverjen Stunning cooktop
This five burner cooktop has style, performance with no wasted space. The drip basin, cast iron grill covers and sealed burners are easily cleaned with soap and water when the occasional spill occurs. Heat control is accurate for maintaining a low simmer, too obtaining a quick high heat for boiling or frying. The center power burner is great for large pasta pots, flat griddle or grill pans, and yes other pots can be used in conjunction with the center burner even though it is only a 30" cooktop. Very happily satisfied with this product!! Ha
