Love the space
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’m so happy that I went with the 36” cooktop, now I can actually use all the burners.
by Gray45
Love our new cooktop!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We are very happy with the purchase of this cooktop. We recently installed it during our kitchen remodel and we love it. It works great and our favorite is the center dual ring burner. We love making breakfasts using the griddle.

Loving how quite it is!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We built our home with Drees. We upgraded to Kitchen Aid. Love how quiet it is! It has many different features then the ones I’ve bought before.

Inferior quality
We bought this about six months ago and within three months the rings/caps/bezels under the knobs became loose. The manufacturer service rep came out to inspect it and said that first, it is considered a cosmetic issue which is only covered for the first thirty days and second, that replacements would be exactly the same. I do not know what genius decided to glue parts within a few inches of burners and unfortunately, they do not have a better solution. Without a proper seal, dirt will go through the openings under the knobs which will create a mess you cannot clean. Also, the markings around the knobs are so faint, you have to look carefully at different angles to decipher what they say. This one is going back

Gas cooktop !
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love that kitchen aid is made in the USA. I love my new gas cooktop. With the temperature control it cooks evenly. And it’s sleek design and cast iron grates are beautiful ! I love it !

Awesome
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I can’t tell you how much I enjoy this cooktop. I feel inspired to cook instead of dreading it. The performance is top notch. I also have the hood a well. Love them both.

Welcomed Addition
In March 2019, we decided to renovate our kitchen. Purchasing our home in 2017, the electric cook top was outdated and took a while to cook a meal. We decided to put in a new gas line in order to convert the existing cook top to a gas one. Kitchen Aid was the best choice. I read reviews and did some research on the internet like you are doing now. Our experienced plumber examined our gas lines before proceeding with the installation of the additional gas line, he stated that the amount of gas volume through the pipes could effect the stove's ability to work properly. He made the calculations and we were in business. That nagging hole in the wall where the gas line had to be installed is what actually started the whole kitchen renovation. In the year that we have been using it, we haven't had a single problem with the Kitchen Aid cook top. Cleans easy and lifts off the counter top with not problems. Water comes to a boil very quickly, sauces and cream pie fillings cook perfectly on the controlled heat. When you need the full power of the heat, you can control it as it moves fast. Its a stark difference from the old electric cook top. There's really nothing to dislike about it. Its a hot commodity.

Great features
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great value and easy to use. Nice features. Glad we purchased
by Marel
Grates are too high! 20 mins to boil 3 cups water!
Ridiculous design! My mistake in not realizing that the grates are too high(20 mins to boil 3 cups of water) and burners too close together. You cannot place too medium size pots next to each other on the side burners. Front burners too close to the knobs and extreme heat loss and delay in cooking throughout. The only saving grace is the center burner which is great but not worth paying $1200 for one useful burner.!! Fortunately I have a second kitchen which I use daily now but this turned out to be a waste and needs to replaced. You’d think they have experts designing these things but apparently not!
