    Scratches & Terrible Customer Service

    Posted
    John

    Extremely disappointed. This unit surface scratches just by using it. The glass surface does not appear to be manufactured correctly. Called KitchenAid and they're not willing to do anything. How can a cooktop that comes in direct contact with pots scratch so easily? I'm using brand new Al-clad pots. KitchenAid's first response was the pots are made of the wrong material (Hard Anodized Aluminum) and that's what is causing the scratches. Checked the pots and the bases are made of Stainless Steel which they recommend. Now KitchenAid changes their story and says the pots are "curved" and that's what's causing the scratches. Use and care guide says nothing about curved. How is a flat stainless steel surface curved and causing scratches? Very sad that KitchenAid doesn't back their product and changes the story to hide from the truth. These pots are designed for induction stoves and conform to their use and care guide. Will never purchase KitchenAid again. I'm sorry I just spent $15K on products a company does not back. A company that changes their story to screw the customer.

    I've been using a small portable induction burner for a couple years and decided to take the plunge to replace my old electric glass cooktop. This cooktop is amazing! So much more powerful than the stand-alone one I had. I love the two bridges, perfect when doing that big family breakfast over the holidays. This is as responsive as a gas cooktop and safer. It cleans up beautifully, much better than my old cooktop. Love the efficiency as well. There is a quiet hum of the motors when cooking, but it is not loud at all. Cooking is a pleasure again.

    I bought this because I saw it in the open item section and it fit my current setup. My old stove top had a crack in one of the burners and I didn't want to wait for it to stop working. Super fast cooking; you can boil water in one minute! I don't know if it's the stove but when you are using all burners at the same time it overheats and it shuts down. I don't do it that often and haven't looked into it but it's a major downside.

    Disappointed

    Stopped working before first month of purchase ....Customer service is booked one moth in advance ( kitchenAid customer service) for repairs. Don't allow the brand to fool you. I will think twice before buying any KitchenAid product ever.

    This cooktop boils water fast! It does hum when you turn it on however, but it stops after a while. It looks great in my kitchen---clean and sleek. A great upgrade for us.
