Product Overview

This 36 in. KitchenAid Architect Series II 5 element induction cooktop combines precision and speed. Electromagnetic induction technology directly heats the pan while keeping the cooktop surface cool to the touch. Twelve power levels give you the power to rapidly bring water to a boil and sear scallops to perfection. A bridge function (on left side and right side elements) lets you combine the power of two elements into one large cooking zone for specialty cookware such as a griddle or oval pan.

California residents: see   Proposition 65 information

Customer Questions & Answers

No size restrictions to activate burners?

Just to confirm, any pan that a magnet will stick to (no matter it's size) will work on ANY of the burners? Also, if water drips or spills on the control panel will the cooktop shut down?
Asked by: thehaymakerswife
Only the Thermador all induction cooktop allows any size pan and it's a whopping $5k. What you need to look at is the specs for the cooktop you are interested in. They should all show the sizes they support. Some require a 5 1/2" minimum pan diameter other may go down to 4" and they have a max.

Does this cook top come with the stainless steel frame or is one available at an additional cost?

Asked by: MJM1
the model with SS at the end of the model number has the stainless steel, but the Bridge Mode doesn't actually heat between the burners, so it is a complete waste.
Answered by: JerryJ

The answer on the size of the pots was not answered clearly.

If you have a pot or skillet with a bottom measuring approximately 5 1/2", will it work on at least one or more of the burners on this induction cooktop? Please answer this question clearly and completely. Thank you
Asked by: Carolyn
Look at the cooktop specifications. They will tell you the minimum size needed a well as the sizes the unit supports and on which burner section.

Are the dimensions of the black & stainless steal the same. Or does the edge of the stainless make that one a hint large

Actual dimension of black vs stainless steal
Asked by: jess

Customer Reviews

Architect Series II 36 in. Smooth Surface Induction Cooktop in Stainless Steel, 5 Elements with Bridge and Dual Element is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 118.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too much clicking! Completed a kitchen makeover a few months ago and replaced the electric cooktop with induction. Really like the functionality of induction however we are having a difficult time with the constant clicking noise whenever the burner is being heated. I called the sales representative and he said that there should not be any noise so I placed a warranty service call. The service technician stated that it did appear that the noise was a little louder than what he had seen/heard on past calls regarding his knowledge of this product. He said that he would check with the manufacture and get back with me. After not hearing back from the technician for a few weeks, I called and left a voicemail asking for an update. No response for another week, so I called again. A person answered the call and after hearing my situation, he said he would contact the technician and get back with me. He did get back with me and said that the technician had contacted the manufacturer, Whirlpool and they said that it was working to specifications and therefore no problem. When I asked the person why the sales representative would say that the unit should not be making a clicking noise, he said that he must not have understood how the product works. I'm writing this review out of frustration because we had a dinner party last night and we were asked why was the cooktop making so much noise? Instead of talking about how quickly the unit heats and other benefits of this new technology, we spent time talking about the annoying clicking noise. This is just one of many situations where other people have asked us what is that noise. I read a lot of reviews on this product before the purchase and understood that it would make a little noise, however nowhere near this decibel level. For us, we would not have purchased this product knowing what we now know.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful heat Excellent heat distribution and fast boiling. Bridge for griddle cooking. One disadvantage is smallest burner is 7 inches so small pots will not work [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great while it works I bought this cooktop in 2014 along with a double oven, downdraft vent and refrigerator for my newly constructed home. The cooktop just suddenly quit working -- does not power on -- was fine one day and dead the next. I have already had to have the ice maker in the freezer and the downdraft vent serviced and am waiting for service for the cooktop. Very disappointed by KitchenAid -- appliances look great but reliability not so much. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Getting used to it. remodeled my kitchen from a conventional cooktop. Hard to find cookware, center burner not functioning properly (I don't think) and wish the controls had the numbers posted so I could tell what heat range I am choosing. I'm getting used to it but not as easily as I would like. Expensive and now that I had to buy all new expensive cookware, it was more than I bargained for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great cooktop, awesome performance, poor quality I'm sad to say that after 3.75 years this cooktop died. Called local repair shops in Angie's List but none worked on these induction cooktops. Reluctantly called Whirlpool / KitchenAid and they dispatched Diamond Factory Service who I have had very mixed experiences with in the past. Fortunately this tech who was sent was great. The good news - the $680 part is under warranty. The bad news - 2 weeks not being able to use it and $220 of labor that I have to pay for out of pocket. I like Whirlpool/KitchenAid, so much so that everything in my kitchen is KitchenAid except the microwave, but I'm afraid the quality - even since bringing manufacturing back to the US - isn't what it used to be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! It does everything an induction cooktop should do and does it well. Boils water in a snap, cools instantly, maintains its temperature when cooking. My only complaints are these: it beeps at you if you (1) leave a pot, utensil or other item on top of it after you turn off the heat; (2) if you lift your pot off the heating element, for example, to toss mushrooms during cooking; and (3) after you turn it off, I guess to remind you it's still hot. So it has a personality, which is something new for me. I am not used to appliances beeping at me except to tell me the timer I set is done. Other than that, it's a great product. Also very easy to clean the glass cooktop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Gas I thought I wanted a gas cooktop for our new home but living on an island w/ o natural gas made that a problem. Our contractor who said "gee induction, it's better than gas". Well he was right. Easy clean up and great and fast temperature control. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great induction cooktop Love this cooktop! Had the Samsung induction stove previously and this cooktop meets our needs and functions much better. All our pans work well on the designated areas and the control panel is easy to use. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
