40-amp breaker is needed?

This question is from 36 in. Coil Electric Cooktop in Brushed Chrome with 5 Elements
Asked by
Austin, TX
Read all my Q&A
December 17, 2015
The wattages of the 5 burners add to 8900 watts. On a 240 volt circuit, this means the cooktop can draw a max of 37.08 Amps (8900/240), right?

The standard safety guideline is that a breaker can handle a normal max load of only 80% of its rating.

The install guide says a 40-amp circuit is need for this cooktop. But 80% of 40 Amps is only 32 Amps. Doesn't this mean that, if all 5 burners are on high, the cooktop will be drawing more than 80% of the suggested 40-amp circuit & breaker?

Customer Reviews

36 in. Coil Electric Cooktop in Brushed Chrome with 5 Elements is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 78.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to clean. I fussed with the flat tops for the last time Two flat tops later and I really like this stove top. Cleaning is easy and it LOOKS clean. Not expensive but does well. Burners work fast and switching from low to high and back is immediate [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Date published: 2016-09-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great stove top for the price This is a great stove stove. It heats up fast and even. It looks nice. Great to have five burners, even though I seldom use them all. I bought this because we have been considering remodeling our kitchen and wanted to get something reasonably priced until we were ready to do the whole kitchen. I have been using for six months now and as we are moving forward on the remodel, I may just keep it. The only draw back is the black shows all water spots. I am continuously wiping it down. Being it is an electric, the burner pans are always dirty, but they can be replaced periodically at a reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad the Old One Broke Maytag coil range top is a very good product. It replaces a ceramic cooktop that we were never really happy with. Intallation was a little tricky, but the appliance works just fine. Very easy to keep clean...unexpected benefit. Escellent delivery service as well. The delivery service center was more than accommodating when we had to make changes in the scheduling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product I had a Sears unit for 29 years and had to replace it. Home Depot had the best deal of anyone and shippped to my home in less than a week. It only takes a few minutes to install it......unless you have to cut your countertop... I did have to trim my countertop a little but was easy. It only takes some with very basic skills to install the wiring into the junction box under the stove top. So far it works great. Home Depot charges a lot to provide the labor for this and dont recommend that. Make sure your hole is the right size for the unit. I had to make mine about 1/2" larger and no big deal. If you have to hire someone get an electrician with basic skills. Good luck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stove top! This stove top is exactly what I was looking for. I had one of the flat top glass kind and didn't like it one bit. This stove top was "retro" looking and goes with my "retro" kitchen, it was pretty easy to install (I had to cut my counter top, but no biggie), and I have been enjoying cooking on it as well! It is easy to clean and water boils much faster on this than on my old cook top. LOVE IT!
