So many great features!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This cooktop has so many features for the serious cook! The extra Melt burner, the grill attachment, the dual burners, are great for preparing that special meal. I have already enjoyed using several of them. I love the lighted knobs!

Control Area by Knobs - Hard to Read
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I had this unit installed on December 21, 2020. It replaced a KitchenAid Electric Cooktop in a house we purchased 2 years ago. I have always had a gas stove until the 2-year period with the electric cooktop, so I was anxious to return to gas cooking. In the showroom 2 years when I started looking at replacement cooktops, I was more concerned about finding a cooktop that would fit into the larger cutout that was made for the eclectic cooktop. At that time, and in a store display setting, I didn't notice that the markings around the knobs were a very light brushed gray. Once the unit was installed in our kitchen, the installer and I both noticed that the markings were small and hard to read. Initially, I had to stand 2 ft back from the unit and slightly to the left of each knob to read the settings available on each burner. I have now become familiar with the controls. I'm not sure why appliance manufacturers have decided that a "sleek looking" appliance is what the market wants. Personally, I'd like to be able to read the controls and not have to refer to an enlarged photocopy of the burner diagram. I would also recommend to consumers who purchase this unit to spend some time experimenting with the various burners and their adjustments as the burners on this cooktop pack a lot of power. The CookShield Finish shows every drop of water spilled on it so I am having to pull off the grates every day and wipe down this surface. (EX: condensation from lids being removed from pots to check cooking progress). Features that I really like on this unit are the separations on the base by the burners which form 3 distinct areas for drips and spills to collect. I also like the lighted control knobs. It is very easy to spot a burner that has been left on from 10 ft away. I am also enjoying the large grates that go over the burners and form one huge surface. This makes it very easy to slide pots and pans around to adjust heat temperature.

Awesome cook top!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought a 36” kitchen aid cook top and love it! It’s many temps makes cooking easy!! Thank you for the experience!!
by Bonz55
Very nice butt.....
Just got this installed and like it quite a bit. I would suggest a design change though, swap the 2 left burners from front to back so the big one doesn't heat up the controls area. I like that this is made in the USA but was disappointed to see the sticker about that was placed over a small scratch in the finish, so it wouldn't be seen by Quality Control? - Made on line 62 date 9/29/2020 (knocked 2 stars off Quality for that). Also like others have mentioned, it's difficult to see the control labels due to the way it's etched/printed in a color that is almost identical to the stainless. (knocked 1 star design for this and the left burner positions

Great quality cooktop.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We just had this cooktop installed and besides being very stylish, the flexibility with the various burners makes cooking a breeze. You can have very high or very low heat with the precise simmer burner or the big double burner in the center. The griddle is also easy and convenient for cooking bacon or pancakes. Love this great new addition to our kitchen.

This cooktop was much more beautiful in person than it was in the online pictures. Originally I didn't even want a KitchenAid I wanted a Whirlpool Professional but the deliver time was ridiculous so I settled. I am glad that I did. This cooktop works wonderfully and the install was a breeze. The stainless is also quite brilliant and it wipes clean with a little glass cleaner and BAM...like new. I would not hesitate to recommend this over mother brands. Solid cooktop, performs well and looks amazing. Quite a compliment to my kitchen.

I really like this cook-top. After a week of cooking on it it's exactly what I wanted. My favorite is the torch burner It heats everything quickly and evenly. The tea kettle was ready in no time. The middle burner I used for a big pot of water for spaghetti, I like that it's back a bit and out of the way of the other burners. Awesome burner! The simmer burner in the back is nice. I made oatmeal on it and there was no sticking or over-boiling it was a nice gentle simmer. The other two burners did a good job too. Each burner seems to have it's own unique setting and purpose. It took a bit of getting used to but I'm glad I picked this one. I love it! My husband installed it. The only gripe he had was there wasn't a template. He was replacing a 30 inch with this 36 inch, a template would have made the job easier and quicker.
