WOW! This cooktop features are awesome!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought the KitchenAid, because it was 1 of a very few with 5 elements, with 1 of the elements able to handle a large stockpot and wide dutch oven pan. Those looking for similar features will be pleased. Just note that this cooktop will require a cabinet that fits a 36" top or just under 35" (~34 11/16 cooktop under unit) and 50 amp circuit breaker.

    Poor quality
    After 6 months of use, the top got scratched. We are only 2 people at home, we don't use it every day. The design is not convenient to use it due to the location of the burners

      Our 36 inch model, Looks great!
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It offer a wide range of element sizes including a super large triple burner all the way down to a simmer burner. Great looking metal knobs. There is a ring around the knobs on the glass to prevent crumbs from falling into the electrical area inside the cooktop.

          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.

            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.

              Heats up fast and easy to adjust temperature
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I built a new house and picked all KitchenAid appliances. I read a lot of reviews on a variety of appliances but selected this line. I didn't go wrong.

                Great look
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We had the cooktop for a month or so, we love it, but within the first two weeks we had to call for service to replace two of the five burners. The hot surface light would not go off after the top had cooled
