Customer review from kitchenaid.com logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] purchased this about two weeks ago, and couldn't be happier. I cook all our meals (family of 6), and use it constantly. It cooks evenly, and the ultra low / ultra high settings are so useful. Exhaust is quiet and effective. The whole unit is super easy to clean, and it looks so classy.

I installed myself very easily. Wow! Amazed at how quickly it heats. As fast or maybe faster than gas. Burners are versatile and the blower has 3 settings. Very happy with this cooktop. It cleans up in a snap even boiled over food thats cooked onto the surface.

I’m baffled
Customer review from kitchenaid.com logo
We just did a kitchen remodel and have purchased all new Kitchen Aid appliances. All is well besides this cook top. I have used it for a week now and there appears to be what looks to be BUBBLES under the glass. I boiled something else tonight and more bubbles! I’m scared to know what this thing will look like in a year. I have quality pots and pans and have looked up care instructions and I feel like I’ve done my part to keep this cook top looking nice so I am really disappointed.

Options for a downdraft cooktop are limited. This one seems excellent so far. The true test will be with daily use over a period of years. The fan is effective in pulling out smoke and odors. My wife appreciates that the knobs are all on one side so they stay out of the way of pans on the burners. The filter and box can be easily cleaned, unlike our previous Jenn-Air model. Installation was even easier than I anticipated.

Cooktop knob control, design
Customer review from kitchenaid.com logo
I was having problem determining which knob controls which "cooktop eyes". I found the small graphic on the cooktop too hard to read and figure out. So I put a black adhesive symbol on top of each SS knob and placed the same symbol, either below the "eye" or above the "eye", depending on the "eye" location, on the cooktop's corresponding "eye". (Note: I placed the symbol on the SS trim, not on the heated part of the cooktop.) I have included photos to show what I did. This enabled my wife and me to know immediately which control goes with which "eye". I thought your design staff could incorporate this idea in your next model.

Very Appealing Cooktop!
Customer review from kitchenaid.com logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] A very nice cooktop that is appealing, easy to clean and works great. I am satisfied with most aspects of this unit except for one thing: the burners are identified with VERY faint circle lines; it’s difficult to center the pan right on the burner until it actually lights up. And, because the glass top is so smooth, the pans slip around a lot, so when the burner isn’t lit up, it’s frustrating trying to recenter the pan on the burner. Also, after the unit was first installed, one of the burners stopped working. Upon service, the tech found the electrical connector had popped off the post. Plugged it back in and all was fine. So, tech checked the others and found one other burner connector was not plugged in properly, and it too would likely have soon popped off. So, with these minor issues I couldn’t give it 5 stars. I would likely not buy this again, however, simply because the faint burner guideline makes cooking frustrating.

New cooktop range
Customer review from kitchenaid.com logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I like the range; however the first time we put a pan on the burner, it seemed to scratch the burner. That shouldn’t happen. Why did that happen.? How can the scratched area be made smooth again.
