      October 2015, after moving into a new home, I decided to update my old GE cooktop, double oven, and microwave. Kitchen Aid was having a great promotion at the time, along with most other high end appliance companies and I was having a hard time deciding on the best brand to purchase. Of course, the more appliances you buy, the better the rebate. The last home I lived in I purchased Thermador appliances and was mostly happy with them, but this time around I thought, "is Thermador worth the extra $2-3K more?" Both KitchenAid and Thermador looked very similar, stainless steel, rolled bar handles, digital display. In the past I didn't think KitchenAid looked high end, but with this new line it definitely was a competitor. I even liked the blue oven interior (which they mirrored after Wolf). I decided to go with KitchenAid in the end and now I come to my review of the cooktop: I have been very happy with this cooktop from KitchenAid. It definitely performs like the high end cooktops! The best part is it is easy to clean. Like I said previously, I had a Thermador which has those cute stars for burners. They worked great but were a bear to clean! I have had this cooktop for several months now and it still looks brand new. The performance is good too. It has a high power BTU in the middle and an extra low one too. The handles light up as well when you turn the knobs. I purchased this 36" cooktop and think the size is good for multiple pots. I don't have problems with overcrowding or using multiple pots at the same time.

      This Cooktop is very nice and high end looking. I had to get a guy to enlarge the opening in the Granite , You have to measure correctly or you would be disappointed . I love everything about this Cook Top but I was disapointed with Best Buy's photos which showed 2 burners with a double tier burner where in fact it only had the middle one. The picture still as of today show that bottom right burner with dual heads.

      I bought this on a sale and it is easily one of the best cooktops on the market. Unless you are willing to go up to the next tier in the $3-$4,000 range then this is the highest quality cooktop. The entire unit is make of thick steel, not like those cheap feeling ones in stores that bend when a pot of water is on them. There is an electronic ignition so it is not always on wasting gas. Installation was simple.

      Based on reviews, we had narrowed our choices down to a Bosch cooktop and the KitchenAid. We have had very good experiences with KitchenAid appliances, and it was more highly regarded by our salesman as well. It has performed very well, the simmer burner and the power burner are terrific. It also looks good, and is pretty easy to keep clean. Great for holiday cooking!

      I didn't know I would be very satisfied with my cooktop. It has worked perfectly well. It was the best price I could find when compared with other cooktop with the same characteristics. I cook my meals very fast and my cooktop is easy to clean! Thank you for the free shipping too. It was fast and when I needed it. Overall, I am very satisfied!

      This is an attractive cooktop that would fit into many kitchens regardless of decor or cooking style. The center dual flame burner is a real bonus, especially useful for my wok cooking. It does not have a griddle, but I think that I can buy a cast iron one and use it in the middle to satisfy that need.

      My old stove top went out and I bought this as a replacement for my wife. She loves it. Great even heating and looks beautiful with our other appliances in the kitchen. The middle burner is our favorite because how fast it can heat up water.

      This is a very good quality cooktop. The knobs are metal and made well. It has a nice even flame. I like the large burner for boiling water. It is very easy to keep clean. The grates are very heavy and durable. I am very happy with my purchase.
