Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 48 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Value and Performance INSTALLATION: Installation was easy in our preexisting opening in the counter. (This replaced an ancient 36" cooktop.) PRICE: I really wanted to get a cooktop with downdraft, but those are thrice the price of this one, and come only with a glass top (“smooth surface”), and are way out of the budget at this time. (The glass ones without the downdraft are over twice the price of this one.) This was the perfect solution for our cooking needs and budget. (I got lucky and was shopping at the right time to catch a sale price to boot.) In the end, I am really happy I opted for the coils, which I further explain below. FEATURES: I love the fact that this cooktop has 5 burners. The extra burner will come in really handy when we have a party or Thanksgiving dinner. This Maytag heats up really fast, and it boils around 8 cups of water with 4 cups of rice in a large stock pot in less than 5 minutes, and when reducing the heat to simmer after a boil, it quickly decreases to the right temperature. I have had glass cooktops on my electric ranges before, and I have never been impressed with their performance. They take forever to heat up and then forever to cool down once you get the water boiling, such as for rice (bring water to a boil, then simmer), probably since the glass takes a while to heat up and then retains the heat. CLEANING: One other aspect that I love about the coil cooktops as compared to glass cooktops is that the coil cooktops are easier to clean. The glass cooktop is really hard to clean when food boils over and gets burned on. It takes a lot of elbow grease and special cleaners to get it off the surface. With the “old fashioned” coil burners and bowls, I just burn off the food from the coil by putting the temp on high, and throw the bowls into the dishwasher. Any residual burned on food comes right off the bowls with oven cleaner. And they are so much cheaper than the glass cooktops! FINISH: I have this cooktop with the black enamel finish. The only thing I do not like about it is that the finish is so shiny that streaks from cleaning and fingerprints, etc., are apparent. We have other black appliances, so I opted for the black, but wish I had opted for the brushed chrome that looks like a stainless finish. At least that would have matched our sink, but I can’t say if it would have a similar issue. All in all, this is an excellent cooktop and I highly recommend it. November 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! I bought this cooktop and I love it. It heats quickly and cools quickly as well. I also have five other electric (and brand new, name-brand) cooktops but this one is the best. The burners are flat, high quality, and I got it online and on sale, so it was easy and cheap!! Plus, it looks good in my kitchen -- looks just like Stainless steel, (which is what I had before -- an old Thermador). Thanks Home Depot! October 27, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Cooktop I really like having a 5th burner. I thought that it might be croweded and not enough space to actually use it, but this cooktop provides plenty of cooking space and it looks very nice in my kitchen. I would definitely recommend this to someone wanting an electric cooktop. April 30, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product The range top was delivered on-time and the delivery men disposed of the old range top for me. The new range top installed easily, looks great and works well. I would highly recommend it. August 31, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by I made the right decision in purchasing this cooktop I was hesitant to give up my 34 year old Frigidaire heavy duty cooktop - after all it was made of heavy, durable materials that had withstood thousands of HOURS of use. It was like parting with an old friend - but the minute my Maytag 5 burner cooktop was installed, I knew I had made the right decision - and after a week's use, I am completely sold on the product. It provides excellent results and I am thrilled with my decision to go with this cooktop. Thanks, Maytag!! January 17, 2012
