      I spent a long time researching products for my new kitchen. I wanted a feature rich high end product and had narrowed the range down between kitchen aide and Samsung but after having both my Samsung washing machine and phone recalled in the past year (and the horrible experience trying to get the recall handled) I decided to go with kitchen aide. I am glad I did! It is a great product that cooks and looks amazing. I love the even heat and power burn. I love that grate goes from end to end. The griddle could be bigger and machine washable for improvements. The only negative I can find with it so far was the LP conversion manual. Nothing matched the product I had purchased, but my gas tech and myself worked through it and got it running. Also be prepared for frustration from installer if they have large hands for the power and even heat conversion portion. Kitchen Aide is my new goto product, maybe not as many cutting edge features as Samsung but they seem to be a better company and know how to build a solid well working product that looks great.

      I replaced my 30” with this 36” and after having the larger opening cut out and installed I realized that my unit didn’t have the burner caps. Bestbuy was amazing to deal with up front but good luck speaking to anyone on the phone when you call. I went back to the store and they made the calls to get the parts needed but said it would take 7 to 10 days?? Have been doing a lot of carry out and cooking on my grill. I would think that Kitchenaid would have better customer service on a packing mistake but what do I know??

      When our freezer went out, we decided to replace the double oven and stove top. After reviewing multiple stove tops we chose this one because of the two high BTU burners. We are very pleased with our choice and it has been installed about 2 months now.

      This cooktop looks very modern, has five burners in different sizes. Love the dual feature that you can reduce heat from really high to simmer on the same burner.

      The cooktop has many options. The power burner in the middle is great for boiling water. The even heating burner is nice depending on the size of pot I'm using. The 30" is spacious.

      Replaced our cookbook and this one was so much more efficient. We like that the burners heat evenly and quickly. We also like that the knobs are backlit.

      Artistically styled. Cooks with accurate heating and is easy to clean. Cooktop is far superior to the 11 year old GE that it replaced.
