We purchased an older home last year and replaced all of the appliances. I originally wanted a gas cooktop but, alas, no gas in our 'hood. I thought about going with an induction cooktop but hated to give up all my tried and true pots and pans. Went with the hybrid and LOVE IT!! I did buy new pots and pans for that side of the cooktop, and am always amazed at how quickly it heats up and cools off....just like gas! And can still cook my old tried and true recipes in the pots that are part of my family on the left side of the cooktop. Both sides function amazingly well, and the cooktop is beautiful.

I bought this cooktop, 5 years and three month ago. and it was top price then , I liked the idea to have both options, Induction and ceramic in the same cooktop. At the time the store offered me an extended warranty which I purchased, 5 years a three months later Error 32 start flashing all over and no one of the cooking options will work, I did some research and I found that this is a very common problem a bad design electric board will bring that error often. I contacted the manufacture to give me an authorized repair person contact, the business I called will charge 100 bucks to see it, not to repair it, I paid the money the repair will cost between 600 to 800 bucks, ( for another 700 you get a new cooktop and of better quality) The cooktop has many other problems of design, the stainless steel borders accumulate debris, grease etc, and are very hard to keep clean. The digital controls are well designed but the sensitivity is not always accurate to the touch, time works fine, and I must admit that when was working I was very pleased with the way induction cooked. However changing every five years for another cook top is not acceptable neither to pay half the price of a new one for a repair. Need a cooktop look for another brand.

Never go bck
I live in the country and natural gas is not available. For years I struggled with a regular electric stove; often burning things after turning them down to a lower temperature. The induction system is absolutely wonderful. When you turn it down, it actually cools off immediately. So it has the best feature of natural gas, but without the dangerous feature of a burning flame. I love it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Works great- hard to clean surfaces
I really like induction cooking and the flexibility of the hybrid, but for some reason, unrelated to the cooking, cleaning the glass top surface is difficult. We have had glass top surfaces in the past that are much easier to keep clean and streak free. The special cleaner for glass tops doesn't do any better. This would be a five star product if the stovetop were easier to keep clean and streak free. My wife insists on turning off the hood light so the streaky surface doesn't show as much.

We have had each generation of smoothtop since their debut. This is the best ever and the size is great for the amount of cooking that we do. Burners are big enough for our larger pots and heat up amazingly fast, the layout of them allows for easy access also. Can't wait for first party to debut it!

We LOVE this cooktop!! We especially love the way we can heat water for rice and spaghetti in almost no time flat, and we also appreciate the way induction cooking does not heat up the kitchen. The other electric cooking spots are fine, too - much faster than the burners we replaced. If I had known how great induction cooking is, I would have gotten the whole cooktop in that mode - I do believe it is as responsive as gas. We do not have natural gas available where we live.

ALTHOUGH I'M NOT AN AVID COOK, I APPRECIATE HAVING THE OPTION OF WHEN I HAVE SEVERAL GUEST I CAN PREPARE FOOD ON MY COOKTOP (EW36CC55GS) IN TWICE THE TIME WITH MY INDUCTION EYES AT THE PUSH OF A BUTTON. I JUST LOVE MY DOUBLE OVEN (EW30EW65GS) BEING ABLE TO COOK MY MEAT(S) IN ONE OVEN AND MY OTHER DISHES IN THE SECOND OVEN MEALS ARE DONE MUCH FASTER. WHAT I CAN SAY ABOUT THE MICROWAVE (EI30MO45GSA) IS THAT IT IS WELL-USED. I LOVE THE SLEEK LOOK OF THE VENT HOOD (RH36PC60GS). PERHAPS IN THE FUTURE IF BUDGET ALLOWS I CAN COMPLETE MY KITCHEN WITH THE REFRIGERATOR AND DISHWASHER. I LOVE THE PRODUCT. NOT HAVE I WORKED ALTHOUGH BRIEFLY WORKED FOR THE COMPANY BUT ALSO IN THE PASS PURCHASED AN ELECTROLUX VACUUM AND SHAMPOOER. SO I'M A FAN. THANK YOU QUALITY AND BEAUTY.

I like it a lot!
By Arkansas Cook
I wanted to purchase an induction cooktop for my new home. After looking at a lot of cooktops, I decided to get the Electrolux hybrid cooktop on the recommendation of a salesperson. It was an excellent suggestion. I had a difficult time finding cookware that worked with induction and were the right size and look. I am able to use my copper pans that do not work with induction. The cooktop works really well. It took me a while to learn how to use it, but I really like it. The induction temperature settings are very precise. When you have it set on 6 and turn it down to 5, the temperature change is really quick. My cooktop is installed in an island. I think the flat, black look is really attractive. It is quite easy to clean. I chose one with stainless trim, but it would be easier to clean the one without trim. The cooktop is really smart. It knows when you lay something on it that doesn't belong and dings until you move it. I'm really happy with my hybrid cooktop.
Compared with my previous solid surface cooktop I find this one more challenging. It would be easier to clean if the metal band surrounding the cooktop was removed. It traps crumbs and requires using a toothpick to completely remove buildup. For cooking it is extremely quick in boiling water or rapidly heating liquids. Cooking requires a bit more attention to maintain lower heat and not burn or over cook food.
This is really a great cooktop! It really does work like they say it will. The only thing to keep in mind with this is that the two induction burners only work with certain metal pots. Not the coated cookware.
