How to adapt this model for an existing 20 15/16" x 28 7/8" cutout to replace a 37 year Jenn Air?

Asked by nasus April 3, 2021
2
Answers

If your top is a granite or quartz, it has to be cut to fit the new 37" cooktop. Also it will be very messy when whoever that will do the cut for you.

I did not see anything that makes this cooktop much better then my old whirlpool range that has four burner. This is a five cook top electric burner but only one of the two big burner uses a great heat during cooking. I will prefer to have a four electric cooktop that burns well than five with only two high heat burner. We cook alot and this burner is not too impressive it me at the cost that I paid for it.

Excellent Cooktop and looks nice!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love our new cooktop! We cook a lot and have all KitchenAid major appliances. This cooktop looks great and we’re very pleased with its performance!
by RMRS
Great stove top! And it’s easy to use.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am happy I choose Kitchen Aid! I will definitely recommend kitchen aid to anybody. It’s a great piece to invest in your kitchen.
by Merly
Sorry I bought this!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Pros: - Quiet Cons: - Controlling the temperature is impossible and very frustrating. An example: I was cooking chili on the dual front burner - set a little bit above "low" and the chili was boiling. I turned it to "low", and five minutes later it was still boiling. Waited another five minutes - still boiling. It sometimes almost feels impossible to get the temperature low enough without turning the burner off. - The overall design is poor. 1) It is very difficult to see the outlines of the burners. 2) The red light indicating that the cooktop is hot, doesn't indicate which burner is actually still hot (which had been a feature on our previous Jenn-Air cooktop). 3) The single/dual burner control knobs work oppositely. To turn on the right front single burner, you turn the knob to the left. To turn on the left front single burner you turn knob to the right. (see photo to better understand - to design it this way just doesn't make sense) We've been using this appliance for over a year now and are still very unhappy with it.

by AngelaP
Beautiful and functional
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am in love with my new cooktop. It cooks so evenly and quickly. We don’t have natural gas in our area but this electric cooktop is just as great as a gas. It cleans up beautifully with just a warm dishcloth and drying it with a microfiber towel. So easy and sleek.
by Bethannie
nice cooktop but several disappointments
I bought this cooktop to replace my 20 year old white Kitchen Aid cooktop which I really liked till it cracked. I wanted white, but it was not available and other brands didn't fit the cutout. The problems: 1- I cannot see the burners unless they are red hot. There is no contrasting ring around them. 2- on my old cooktop there was a red light next to each burner, indicating that the burner was hot. On this one, there is just one light. You have to guess which burner is hot! 3- The control knobs are very confusing. On some hot is on top. Others hot is on bottom. Worse, the dual burners don't make sense. One of them has single on the left, the other on the right. The labels are very small and hard to see. Very frustrating! 4- Not enough gasket material came with the cooktop. I had to buy some and have the electrician come back and reinstall it. It heats quickly, I like having 5 burners, and it looks nice.

I am replacing a stove top. It was a kitchen Aid before and I had it for twenty years. It cracked because of a small earthquake. I loved my kitchen aid before and that's why I purchased another. I am not disappointed love having the knobs all to one side. Also the big burners are large enough to accommodate my large pans. I have to say this all happened during lock down. I ordered it online and received it in a week. My Home Depot did not have it in stock. The measurements on the website ensured that I would get the right size top. It fit like a glove. Installation quick and easy.

Great addition but one issue
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought this cooktop to replace 22 year old GE in good working order to go with New low profile KA microwave, Love the look and performance of both. Now the but, why is a 30” cooktop not made to fit a 30” base cabinet without having to modify the sides of the cabinet.
