I need the template for the installation. It wasn't in the box when we opened it. The countertop reps need it. How do I get it?
Asked by: Kathy
Hi Kathy, the cooktops don't come with templates anymore, the Installation guide will have the dimensions of the cooktop, and what is needed for the countertop cutout here is a link that will provide all necessary information for your KCGS956ESS http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfImages/98/98d201c1-1f3a-4d8f-a05b-afd655c6a025.pdf

36 in. Gas Cooktop in Stainless Steel with 5 Burners including Professional Dual Tier, Torch and Simmer Burners is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 100.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks good, performs ok BUT Two burners, center and left front (20000 btu and 12000 btu) are the only ones that heat water at an acceptable rate. The only trouble is that they are large burners and the flame for a mid sized saucepan tends to run up the outside of the pot. Handles and stuff get hot. Ok lets move the pot to the right front burner,10000 btu, For example, my teapot that used to heat up to 170Deg F in just over 3 min, on my Dacor back burner (I replaced), now takes over 5 minutes. Forget using the other two back burners (7000 and 6000 btu) are in my opinion are there for decoration. One can always turn down the heat on a higher btu burner but you cant make a low output burner cook any faster. If you like gas cooking because it is fast and and you do a lot of cooking this is not the cooktop for you. I wish I could send mine back

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Cooktop Installed a month ago. I like this cooktop! Several things about it appeal to me, but number one is the simple pan design that makes cleanup easy. I purchased the highest end model to match a built in fridge and wall over. This product looks great in the kitchen. The light up knobs are a real plus, as is the great gas flow and multiple burner choices. Negatives are few and minor. The included skillet designed to sit on the burners is way too narrow... doubled or tripled in size, it might be functional. The only quibble I have design wise with this cooktop are the markings designating which knob controls which burner. They should be more prominent... as is they are small and hard to see for kids and older eyes. Otherwise, great product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek Cooktop Bought this for our new home. Easy to clean, great variety of options for what i'm cooking. The light up knobs look great, & remind we if i need to turn it off when i'm done cooking :) Also love the top griddle to make a quick egg in the morning, no need to dirty a dish!

I like the fact that the exhaust outlet can be moved to 3 different locations - this came in handy when installing the duct work in a tight under the counter cabinet. Burners are very clean burning. I am very pleased.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Dissapointed If you intend to cook with multiple pots at the same time you will be disappointed that KitchenAid didn't take this into consideration with the spacing between burners. When using a large pan on front burners you run the risk of the knobs getting hot under the pan. Knobs are opposite on each side for high/low settings which is confusing. Really poor design!
