This cooktop was purchased to match a 24 in. Gas Single Wall Oven in Black, also a Maytag that I had purchased. Perfect match. The burner grates are cast iron and have a cook on the grill look to them. I like the way they look but but some my not. Remember to make sure the center disk is seated on each burner so the igniter will work properly. It has one small, two medium, and one large burner. The depth of the cooktop was about an inch more than the old one and I had to modify the drawers in the cabinet to make it fit. Other than that, it functions well and I am very satisfied with my purchase.

I agree with a review below, to many screws sticking out the sides all around the unit. I had to modify my counter top to make it fit because of those screws sticking out. There has to be a better way to eliminate the screws.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Pville Beware of wobbly grates
Do not purchase this stove unless you'd enjoy having your pots and pans wobble on the un-level grates while you cook. I purchased this stove in 2010 and thought perhaps I just got a bad set of grates. Nope. I acquired another set in 2014 and they STILL wobble. I can't believe that such a defect has not been fixed in 4 years.

I have installed my second of this model of Maytag cooktop and will be returning it as well. The first didn't spark on one burner, the present one has virtually no divots to hold the grates in place. I won't be ordering a third!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dmaTX Great cooktop for the price
I purchased this unit to replace a 13 year-old GE cooktop with a stuck valve. I agree with the other reviewer - this cooktop is deeper than the old GE, and I thought I would need to shim underneath the cooktop to raise it off the counter, as it has several screws on the bottom that stick out, but it just barely cleared my built-in GE electric undercounter oven. I did have to dremel out some spots in the cutout, as the cooktop also has protruding screws all around the sides, but that wasn't too hard.
Overall, I really like this cooktop. The flame is really easy to regulate, and the power burner boils water in no time. It's a beautiful unit, much nicer and sturdier than the GE cooktop with which I compared it. Cleanup is a breeze, since the open design and sealed burners allow for access to every spot where something could spill.
A couple of concerns:
* This cooktop surface does get hot when the burners are going, but I think this is due to the open design, as I saw a review mentioning this concerning another manufacturer's similar cooktop - I never really noticed if the surface of my old GE cooktop (with the drip pans) got this hot, but I guess it's logical that it would - I am a little concerned about possible scorching of my counter, but I'll keep an eye on it.
* The grates are quite heavy-duty, and while they sit absolutely level on the surface of the cooktop, there does seem to be a "high spot" over each burner that causes my pots and pans to rock a little bit. I saw this issue mentioned in a review of this cooktop on another site.
Since I caught a sale, I got an excellent price, and I look forward to good reliability, since Whirlpool now owns and builds Maytag. I hope to have many years of good service from this cooktop.
