Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CookCT Works well, but many issues with the controls
Cooks nicely, but there are some things that aren't so nice. If you drip hot water from the condensation from a pan lid, all of the controls light up and flash like a christmas tree, and all burners shut down. It is then a bit difficult to figure out what to do. You have to hold the big button again for several seconds and start over. In addition, there is an annoying fan that runs intermittently in the cabinet, and it can be noisy. Not sure if venting the heat from the unit into the cabinet is such a great design idea. Also, if you have a cat, make sure to use the child lock feature. Our cat has walked on this and turned it on multiple times.

We have had the cooktop for about a month. We love the looks and the ease of use. It took a couple of tries to get everything down. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

This unit replaced an older white cooktop with control nobs during our complete kitchen upgrade with four LG appliances. This 30" fit perfectly in the hole cut into the granite for the old one. Without nobs, it's very easy to clean and looks very nice in the granite. The controls are bright, large enough and easy to use after getting used to how long to keep your finger on them to activate. Wished we had space for the 36" unit. It also heats up very fast and is easy to change temps when needed. Great unit for the price and features! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by angel Another great LG product!
I am absolutely thrilled with this appliance! It's easy and logical to use and so very easy to clean. I wish I had purchased this earlier. I did my research and don't think there's a better one out there for the money. My husband installed it in less than 30 minutes and I was cooking on it shortly after.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj Love This Cooktop
This cooktop performs great, and at lower settings than the old one.
It would have been a tight install over a 30" cabinet, so I installed over a 36" cabinet with drawers.
I raised the countertop 11/2" to clear the two drawers under the cooktop. Spoons and cooking utensils barely got warm while cooking a full blown Thanksgiving dinner. I just love it!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LC Absolutely love it! Sleek, elegant and easy to use.
This cook top is efficient and easy to use. I love the 5 burners, but only 30 in.

This cooktop had all of the features I desired and after using it for about a month I have not been disappointed.
A single sheet of glass to clean, no restrictions on pot size and easy controls. I've had ceramic cooktops for many years and I am used to cleaning them. That said the trim or knobs usually got in the way and made a proper cleanup job take a while, but since this is a single sheet of glass cleanup is a breeze. Most other cooktops or stoves have limitations on ultimate pot size due to raised trim, and while eventually you will run into the controls a 12" pot bottom easily fist on this stove. I was most worried about how the controls would perform. However they have been intuitive and responsive.
I'm reaching for negatives, but the only two things I wish this cooktop had would be a fifth functional burner (not just for warming) and a timer. I was not able to find a similarly sized cooktop with a functional fifth burner, so that is just a failing of this general market segment rather than the cooktop itself. As for the timer I wish the cooktop could either power down or switch over to warm mode after an allotted cook time.
Notes on installation: The manual was accurate for cooktop and counter cutout dimensions. I needed to cut out an extra 1/4" into the width of my stone counter top, but after that the cooktop slid right in. The included armored power cable was more than sufficient to reach any where in the double cabinet it is installed in. I did add a fused disconnect junction box, which actually made installation very easy.
Notes on images: I uploaded hi res images, but they don't show up well in the review. I was initially also concerned about how well the under glass illumination was, but I have no concerns now. All indicators are clear and distinct. When selecting heat from 1-9, a matching number of indicators are illuminated inside of the corresponding burners control. All indicators are red.

Our old cooktop was ten years old, and troublesome. What a difference ten years makes! Best of all, the new technology was easy to use - we didn't have to get our grandson to show us how it operates. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
