      Cooktop does everything as advertised. Induction does heat things extremely quickly! I hear a clicking sound with my pots, but I have read this is a common issue. The location of the keypad is somewhat frustrating. If I set anything on it then it will beep at me, and maybe even shut my burner off. It is hard to avoid based on the location of the keypad. Also, if I remove a pot or pan for even a second, it will start to beep at me. The beeping is annoying, but maybe it is just my usage habits. Overall the cooktop looks great when you can get all the smudges off. I love how it is solid black, it really compliments my expresso cabinets.

      Buyer beware, Bridging Feature

      Be aware that, at this date (Dec '16), there is no griddle compatible with this KitchenAid Induction Cooktop with bridging feature. We based our purchase of bridging option due to the flexibility offered with being able to have a large cooking area. This observation has been commented by other purchasers for nearly two years. I would advise doing web research before purchasing.

      After we lost function of our previous cooktop due to a PG&E power surge and outage, we decided to get a better quality one that had good reviews. We have not been disappointed but we have only had it around a month now, so we shall see as time goes by!

      We compared to other manufacturers and came away impressed with the features and price. First time using induction and we would recommend it to anyone over regular electric cooktops. Just have to make sure you have cookware that will work.

      After playing with a single burner induction hot plate, I decided to go with a whole unit. Heats up almost instaintainesly like gas and cools off like gas, with out the gas issues, Expensive, but highly recommend.

      This a great looking cook top with no knobs completely flat and sleek. The only issue I had was not being informed of wiring requirements when switching out from old appliances to newer.
