    This cook top looks great and operates perfectly. We could have spent a lot more but I doubt that we would have received enough benefit from some added features to justify the additional expense. I did some extensive research before making this purchase as I did not want to be buying another one for a long time. This appliance has the features that are useful every day. The variety of BTU levels in the various burners is perfect. The balanced look of the design and the horizontal continuous grates provides a touch of elegance and fluidity while being practical. The Best Buy extended payment plan with no interest reduced the impact of this purchase on our budget without the penalty of the added cost of interest. It was shipped on time and arrived in perfect condition. Over all, I very pleased with the cook top and with Best Buy!

    I had never cooked on gas range but read most people want, especially when looking at homes to buy. Have been in house 13 years and tired of flat surface unit, which is hard to clean. We have propane so wasn’t sure about. I am SOO pleased. Thought it would take time to adjust to but immediately liked. My husband and I installed. Installing vent hood was much more difficult! After a month, VERY happy with choice

    This is my first experience in cooking on gas cooktop. We are very happy with this stove. It is looking great with everything in my kitchen. It cooks evenly and very easy to clean. It makes me to cook a variety of meals very fast. Great cooktop that makes cooking fun.It has a very good space for all the 5 burners. We can use all the burners at once if needed.The burners come with different sizes and very easy to light. Great cooktop with fair price

    Nice Looking Cook Top Which Works Well

    I suffered for years with a cooktop upon which the previous owner of my house had burned the plastic cover onto the cook top. It worked well but looked disgusting. When I saw this cook top I loved it. It has large grates which I first thought would be a problem but which I found are really an asset. Instead of balancing pots and pans on individual burners I now have a large, continuous cooking surface. The cook top is easy to clean, it works as advertised and it is very good looking.

    My old Whirlpool caught on fire so I needed a replacement. This was a perfect fit. Works great and I didn't know how much I'd love it. I installed it myself. The instructions were informative and easy to read. It took me about 30 minutes to install. The old one had been removed and the area was cleaned thoroughly before cooktop was delivered.

    Looks good but with design flaws

    The grill sits too high over the gas so pans take longer to get hot. The grill top does not have a secure connection to the bottom, kind of slides around. But it looks good and the price was right for me. Flat continuous top makes it usable as a storage place for resting pans.

    It's a great modern and very good looking cooktop with all the advances in technology to be use as easy as it can be. The stainless steel look makes a big difference from older models.
