    Great 30" Cooktop

    Posted
    John

    If 30" is all you have to work with in your countertop this cooktop represents a very good compromise of burner types and layout. Their are three standard burners in different sizes and a couple of special multi-purpose burners. They are not gimmicky though - Kitchenaid is a serous foody company and the even heat burner real does heat more evenly. The super burner really boils a pot of pasta water considerably faster than even the larger std. burner. The grates dishwash beautifully and I don't know what they coated the stainless with but it cleans up to a like new condition no matter what you boilover onto it - it's a little spooky that way - all I use is soapy water or windex and a sponge or paper towel ... nothing abrasive.

    This review is so biased!!! First of all we are huge kitchen Aid fans. Matter of fact this is all we buy... ever !!! This cooktop is not only sturdy but so easy to cook on... it has the center simmer which I can’t stop using.. the grates are so rich in color and very well made... it has 3 sections which make for easy clean up and great when it’s time to sauté foods... Again get this I can’t brag enough on Kitchen Aid products . This one won’t disappoint. I’ve tried other lower end brands in the past and once you purchase quality nothing else will surfice. The product justifies the price and it is definitely worth it!

    I wished I would have taken a closer look at this before purchasing it. Figured it was kitchenAid so should be great. There are a few things i don't like about it. First, the printing above the knobs that show you low/high etc are so faint you can hardly even read them. Went back into the store to check the one out on display and it was the same way. Also, if you have a large frying pan on the front burner, it covers up have of the knob and you can't see it to adjust temperature. The grates are also extremely heavy and hard to lift for easy cleaning.

    Decent entry level gas cooktop

    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.

    Absilutely the best stove for propane gas. Went through 3 Samsung chef's collection stoves that were crap and expensive. This one however was less expensive and the knobs do not over heat while in use. Great for a 30" stove. I ise propane so as most would know, the gas burns hotter. Still no issues with knobs and I just love to cook again.! The pkus to this stove is the cleaning. I foil wrap my stove and voila! Peel foil and do a minimum wipe down and stove looks like new even after more than half a year in use.

    Cntrls work awkardly, install hdw caused gas leak

    Cook top looks great and works fine. The controls differ from the expected low to high by igniting on high and need to lowered to the desired setting. The major knock is the installation hardware for the thin line or basic thicker range uses the same 3" attachment screws. The smallest deviation (over tightening or slight tilt from vertical) on the right side seem to cause a line in the cook top to leak natural gas. Currently waiting on a third unit. I would recommend the unit to someone that wants to work with the installer making sure the screws penetrate only half an inch into the case.

    Awesome cooktop, almost too much!

    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.

    We are very happy with our KitchenAid gas cooktop. Efficient and easy to work with. This gas cooktop replaced our old electric cooktop that did not perform nearly as well. And the electric cooktop eventually cracked which won't happen with this KitchenAid stainless steel gas cooktop. Most importantly the gas cooktop makes our meals much tastier. Now my family thinks I have become some kind of expert cook. :)

    Nice fast and even cooking...favorite gas stove/cooktop yet. I’ve used large pots and pans on the front burners at the same time with no problems. Knobs don’t heat up if you don’t cover them with pots or pans. Only negative is that the lettering is faded. Not enough of an issue to return it though.

    I recently had my old cook top go bad and needed a new one. The previous one came with the home when I bought it. I always hated it but it worked. A friend of mine had a really nice kitchen aid so I decided to check them out. I'm very impressed with the looks and functionality. The knobs are in a much better location than my old one and the 5th burner is the best for large soup pots. I absolutely love it and my wife is ecstatic with it. Great purchase.

    We purchased this gas cooktop and converted to propane to replace our electric one. Installation was easy and conversion was simple, except for center, large burner which we were told by the manufacturer requires professional services to convert to propane. Out only complaint is that there is not a lot of variability between high and low on a given burner, but this can be helped by using another burner.

    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..

    Awesome 30in Gas Cook Top with 5 burners

    If you are looking for a gas cook top but are limited in size to a 30 inch model, you can't go wrong with this one. You get 5 burners and have more than enough space to have several pots/frying pans going at once. I love this cook top. It looks great, works great, and is easy to maintain.

    I’ve never had a gas stove and switched from a smooth top electric. Very happy with the temperature evenness so far. Heats up quickly and looks so professional! The knobs are nice and heavy so I think they will hold up well. Lots of reviews complained about cheap plastic knobs on other brands.

    Originally bought the 36 inch top online but it didn't fit so I had to downsize to the 30 inch. Bestbuy processed return in store they did charge $150 restocking fee so make sure the cut out dimensions work for your area!! I am still super happy with the 30 inch. That center burner is awesome boils water extremely fast, the clean up is easy, wipes up with no steaks love that!!

    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.

    We ordered this stovetop as a new upgrade when we upgraded countertops. We were using builder grade stovetop for two years before replacement. What a difference! So much more heat. Faster to cook items. Looks great also. Great value!

    Attractive and very functional. Easy to use. You should be aware that cook tops are not necessarily sized to fit a standard counter cut out. A 30 inch will not always replace another 30 inch. The opening resizing can be costly for Granite counter tops, and very difficilt to clean up after.

    It’s an amazing cooktop esthetically it look completely stunning but it a complete B**ch to clean. I mean every time you cook on it you have to literally take it apart and clean every peace separate. Can’t use any chemicals really some parts I believe to be aluminum and easy to scratch.

    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.
