Decent entry level gas cooktop
Posted by: Miranda from: on
I purchased this to replace an ancient Jenn-air that was in our new home. We had gas pipes into the kitchen for it. It looks great and the grates are nice and solid. I sort of wish we had space for a 36 in top, but given the size, we can fit a lot on this cooktop. We are particularly impressed with it having five rather than four burners. One star off because its a pain to clean (stainless steel take a lot of elbow grease to clean) and because I've seen more powerful burners in other cooktops. I think they were much more expensive so I do think this one is a great value.

This cook top looks very nice.. But you can't use an oblong pancake griddle on it. All the burners are different sizes. The center pasta burner is very hot should be used for boiling water only. The controls are in a strange place too, if you are using a frying pan on the front burners, it feels like the controls are too close and feel like I'll get burned. I can't return it now unfortunately..

Great if you dont plan on cooking
Posted by: atlpr8head from: on
Looks great but the grates are too high from flame. The center burners is only one that can even think about boiling water. This a horrible design flaw. We thought about cutting the 1/2" feet off but why? Praying we can return. Yes we have plenty of gas pressure as we had to run a direct gas line to the cooktop.

It might sound crazy but the main reason that i picked this one instead of the others on display was how the knobs felt while turning them. The construction quality feels great and the large center burner gets way more use than I thought it would.

Awesome cooktop, almost too much!
Posted by: Kruegerand from: on
This cooktop is awesome, the heat from the burners is so much greater than I've ever cooked with prior, I love it. Easy to install, but measure after removing your old one to ensure it fits nicely without too much modification. I did have to make minor modifications to the cooktop backside, it was either that or cut granite, either way I'm very happy with the outcome and the products. I purchased the oven to match.

The best looking 30" I could find
Posted by: joefein from: san diego on
Unfortunately there are much more options for the larger ones but this is the best 30" I could find. I saw some others in the store but the knobs on thsi felt MUCH better and more solid.

Looks and works great
Posted by: wlukow from: on
While this was not the least expensive cook top out there, it is worth every penny. It sits up a little higher than our old cooktop. It has a very clean look and is easy to use. The burner in the middle is great as it will boil water faster than the other burners.

Love different size flame options!
Posted by: Butterfly7 from: on
First of all, I want to say that the salesman who assisted us looked for exactly what we wanted and in the right price range. He was great. The stove top, I love it. I really like having all the options for different size flame burners and that all of the knobs are on the bottom. It was great that it was interchangeable from gas to propane.

We needed a new stove and this is perfect, installation was a little tricky.
