    not sure if it's the model or the style

    This is our first smooth top (gas not an option on our street), and it's been a rocky start. Although it's nice to be able to wipe clean the stove, anything at all that is trapped between the pan and the stove (even a small water droplet) creates a nasty spot on the stove top that may or may not come off with heavy scrubbing using the spray and green scrubbies that you buy separately. This was unexpected, and we're still on the fence about whether or not we're happy with this. The oven and the stove top seem to run quite hot. Although the elements heat up extremely fast (water boils much faster than on our old coil top), the stove top doesn't cool down quickly, so we're forced to remove food from the element while we wait for it to cool down. Seeing that we are pretty serious cooks, some of the above issues definitely cramp our style. I do love the child-proof lock on the controls, as they are super sensitive and turn on easily, even by brushing against them accidentally.

    i bought this stove 8 months ago and i am already on my second service call. the first time a fuse blew in the electrical panel on the front, easily fixed took the repair man 10 min. the second time not so lucky, they came 2 days before thanksgiving and told me they had to order a whole new electrical panel.......the steam from the cook top goes through the gasket cools down turns into water and fries everything, por poor design...the people who designed this thing just designed it for looks not for cooking!!!!!! wish i knew that before i bought it.

    This stove was delivered about a week ago and I just love it. It replaced my 20 year old Kenmore and I couldn't be happier. I had never used a stove with a glass top before but I'm getting used to it and I like it a lot. I'm careful to clean up spills right away and so far it's been pretty easy. I might need to get some new cookware though because the bottom of my Revereware doesn't seem to be flat enough and some of my pots dance around a bit while things are simmering on the stove. A good excuse to get new cookware as far as I'm concerned! I would definately recommend this stove.
