      I have had this for a short time, but I have fallen in love with it. I really enjoy all the bells and whistles that it offers. It has knobs that can be removed, which I do not use, I much rather have the digital and the blue flame makes it look like it is gas but without the smell. I love to bake so the melt setting is wonderful, I don't have to pull out my double boiler to melt chocolate anymore. It has a quick boil setting which my husband really likes (makes his tea quicker). My grandkids love it when I make them pancakes; with the flex zone it brings the burners together and distributes the heat evenly (unlike my gas cooktop). After I remove the pan, the stove top cools down quickly so I don't have to worry about them touching the stove and burning their little fingers. I thought the bluetooth was a bit overboard for a cooktop, but I purchased the hood and now I don't have to bother with turning it on, it turns itself on. It's flat surface makes it really nice when I need more counter space. And did I mention that there is no burners to clean, I just get a damp rag and wipe if off. I am looking forward to many years of cooking with my new cooktop.

      Almost Perfect

      We just installed this induction cook-top to replace a 10 year old GE that bit the dust in the hopes that Samsung does better. It's a nice improvement. Noticeably more powerful and nicely featured. We love the left side multi and odd pan shape setup. And the blue leds are more than cool looking, they are a much nicer way to know things are on than looking straight down at the control readout. The downside... the slight delay from the pressing of power on and or temp selection to the moment of actuation takes getting use to. And the advertised timer w/alarm and Wifi are just marketing gimmicks. A timer alarm who's four tiny chirps that can't be heard (unless everything is extremely quiet and you're standing in front) is useless. They might as well have just included an hour glass. The WiFi can't control anything (other than setting the useless timer) and doesn't notify. It might be handy if you have something slow cooking all day and want to see if it's still on while you're away, but why? You can't do anything about it. And if you're worried that the house power might have blinked forget being able to turn things back on. If you activate WiFi you get an "always on" led which distracts from the clean glass-top look so off it stays. They should have just left out the timer and WiFi and cut the price. But these are no reason not to enjoy this one, it's really a fantastic way to cook.

      This Samsung unit replaces a 10+ year old induction kitchenaid and how technology has advanced since then. "watched water" boils super fast and having the blue light intensity match the heat level may seem gimmicky, but it really does add a nice touch if your pans are polished. The magnetic knob to adjust the temperature is useful, but not at all needed. Just make sure you don't accidentally toss it out with the box because it is small and easily missed. Using the griddle feature to make pancakes is a breeze for how large the surface area is too. I've noticed other pots and pans I've used in the past seem to heat up a lot quicker too. Not sure if that is the better elements in this one or a sign of how faded my old cooktop was. Be warned though, this beast does require a 50 amp breaker (I think manual says 48, but I don't think those exist). So check your circuit panel before ordering because a 50 amp breaker can't (shouldn't!) use 40 amp wiring. Also, while this is listed as a 36" cooktop, measure your existing opening carefully. This is a very 'compact' 36" and I had to add some structure to my existing countertop so this one wouldn't fall through the hole. All totaled less than $60 in hardware and was well worth it.

      Good but subpar touch sensors

      It’s been 6 months since we got this cooktop to replace an old GE profile. On the good side: looks and design are great, it heats everything really fast, it’s very versatile with one very large burner and the square flex burner. On the not so good side: the beep alarm is not loud enough, the blue LED lights are not as fancy as the pics show, the flex burners are tricky to use and the timer is not easy to use. On the bad side: the touch sensors are not sensitive enough nor are they accurate enough and make it worse the magnetic knob is not any better. It’s a bit pricey compared to other induction cooktop.

      Induction is amazing

      We just renovated our kitchen. Upgraded from our old electric range to this induction cooktop. The difference is amazing. Pots and pans are hot almost instantly. For comparison, we boiled a Dutch oven full of water on the old range, and it took 20 minutes exactly. With our new cooktop, the exact same pot with the same amount of water took 5 minutes 30 seconds. Great for regular cooking as well. Gets pans VERY hot at the higher settings. Looks great too, especially when cooking with the "flame" lights. Not nearly as noisy as I expected; it mainly just has noise when starting on high settings to boil water. After seeing how well induction works, I am surprised companies are not promoting this technology more.

      Amazing cook top

      Amazing cook top. I was skeptical of this cook too at first. When our kitchen remodel was finished I was hooked on this. Induction cooking is the most efficient type of cooking. Plus it's just a fun parlor trick. We can boil water in less than 2 minutes without using the power boost mode that will cut the time down to just over a minute. With a 4month old in the house we don't have to worry about her burning herself or turning on the burners as she grows up. I really enjoy using the magnetic knob that can be moved to each controller for ease of use. This unit also has a lock mode so little hands can't accidentally turn things on. Currently love this equipment but will keep review up to date as time goes by.

      Induction cooking takes a little getting used to, but once you do, you will never want to go back to resistance coils. Pans heat up faster and the cooking is much more even. This cooktop looks great, too. I love having a smooth, uninterrupted surface for cleaning. Looks great, too.

      A really top of the line cooktop.

      This cooktop has every feature that you could possibly want. The induction system makes it much safer and dramatically reduces the chance of an accidental burn. The simulated flames make it very easy to see which elements are on and the controllability is superb. This would enhance any kitchen.
