    Poorly designed

    Posted

    This is the second induction range I’ve owned, first one was made by another manufacturer. Here are the design issues I’ve encountered. 1.) The induction burners on the left side are too close together, about an inch apart. Induction works by using magnets in a very specific location to create heat. Move the pot or pan a bit off of the burner, it won’t work. I have no issue with the principal of how induction works. My issue is that when I have 4 pots on the stove to cook, the two pots on the left hand side ****always**** touch each other. These are small to medium sized pots and pans. If you buy this stove, you too will run the risk of having too little space to cook on. 2.) The stove is the boss, not me, and if you buy this model, not you either. Say some water happens to boil over. If a little amount touches the control pad just a few inches away, the entire stove top automatically turns off and starts beeping! I know that pots of water boiling over a bit is a super rare occurance (insert sarcasm), so this would likely only be an issue for about 90-95% of the people who buy this range. Similarly, if you wish to wipe off the surface a bit while cooking, the induction top will turn off....and start beeping at you. 3.) This range has another “feature” you’ll love. If you take something out of the oven and put it (gasp) on the ceramic surface of the induction range while cooking on the induction range, it will shut off and.....drumroll please....start beeping at you. IMO, terrible design. Kitchenaid, if your induction controls cannot take a little bit of heat or water then ***move them off of the cooking surface ffs****!!!!! 4.) Beeping, so much beeping. 5.) The oven takes a very long time to preheat. Slow. 6.) The controls for this induction range are not sensitive and difficult to operate, IMO. Be prepared to press that power or off button quite hard and for several seconds to get it to work. I love induction ranges, I can not recommend this one. It’s the opposite of user friendly. To summarize, if you enjoy very nice looking ranges which constantly beep at you, immediately shut off if the cooktop controls are exposed to water (small amounts) or a hot dish fresh out of the oven, then this is the unit for you and your family.

    I only used induction once before and that was when it was demoed in a store. It was awesome and I never noticed any noise. I am using KitchenAid induction cookware (that was sent for free as a rebate, thank you, KitchenAid!) and whenever we use the cooktop, it is loud! A very loud high pitched vibration noise. I have read lots of complaints about this stove so probably shouldn't have purchased. Best Buy came to my house and the technician was shocked at how loud this is. They are ordering some sort of power module and hopefully this fixes the issue. It will be here in 2 weeks. I want to love this stove, especially since we paid a small fortune to upgrade all of our appliances to Kitchen Aid, but let's see. Hopefully optimistic and may follow up with this review.

    We love our new Kitchenmaid Induction Range! The cooktop has plenty of settings to choose just the right temperature. The temperature remains stable throughout for an even boil when making pastas. Water heats FAST - tested it - 1 cup of water heated in under 42 seconds - on the traditional electric range - over 2 minutes - super fast! The convection oven fan is so quiet that we honestly thought it was not working! Really enjoying our new purchase!

    Don't be mislead by negative reviews. Induction is awesome. Yes, it makes a little noise but it is far from loud. The most anoying thing is that it beeps when you put a hot pan/baking sheet on the surface but it's definitely not a deal breaker. I almost didn't buy it because someone said the oven door got hot but that hasn't been our experience at all. All and all, it is a great stove that exceed our expectations.

    The cooktop is a pain to use the touch controls work some time and sometimes they don't I have to go out to the breaker and power down and reset it. Put anything on the top and it starts to beep at you. In the middle of cooking, it turns itself off. The oven takes forever to get up to temperature. Overall I am very very unhappy just a really bad design and overall crappy product. Skip this and get a samsung or another brand this one it horrible.

    Still adapting to this induction range. I feel there should a lock after you set your settings so you don’t accidently lean against it and change settings. Also the cook top you can get to temperature quickly but trying to preheat the oven takes forever.it takes longer than my 30 year old electric range that had a bad element took. It is extremely frustrating. At this point I would not purchase this range again if I had the choice

    The induction cooktop on this range is really responsive and works well. Have only used it for a month now but so far I like it. Have not baked in the oven enough to really be able to review it.
