I am in love with this commercial style range-top! First of all, it's very stylish and lends a great look to our kitchen. But most importantly, it's so functional...with the burner settings for various options (i.e.: low heat for sauces, etc) and the griddle a HUGE bonus for our family...clean up is so simple!

Look, I really love the gas cooking and I've never cooked on gas before this appliance. The burners are great and the griddle does heat evenly but..I. I would never recommend this model. If I have to do this all over again, I wouldn't. I would get the model with six burners. The griddle is impossible to cook on and impossible to clean. You can't brown meat then expect to cook eggs on top of that and you can't clean in between. The griddle takes 15 minutes to heat up, 2 hours to cool down in order to clean. We cook a lot of omelets and they stick. We've tried everything. I was warned from a friend who has the same cooktop and I should have listened. I clean according to directions and it takes me all day to return it to the pretty shiny chrome that it is. Today was my third time to cook on it. Last time I thought I had ruined it. Browning meat left a large cloudy spot in the middle. That was after 3 hours of scrubbing with everything as suggested. I finally got the thing clean at 4 in the afternoon after cooking breakfast. I finally used Whinks cooktop cleaner for glass cooktops. It is recommended for metal as well. I tried again today and this will be the last time I use it. I just don't have hours in the day to clean this thing. I'm really disappointed. It was not as advertised from the supplier. Buy the six burner and use a counter or stovetop griddle. The gas portion is great. Keep in mind that the stainless scratches easily. Our plumbers ruined the stainless front before we ever moved in. Cover well during construction. I was warned of that as well. Live and learn.

Comments about KitchenAid 36" Stainless Steel Gas Cooktop:
The only reason I can't recommend this rangetop is because of the griddle. It takes for-ev-er to heat up, and then isn't very hot after you wait for 40 mins. I wish I had just bought the 6 burner rangetop and then the cast iron griddle to use when I wanted. It's very frustrating to pay for a beautiful rangetop and then be disappointed :( ...I'm very happy with everything else about the range.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Powerful & Gorgeous
from Covina, CA
This stove top has 4 different sized burners and is very powerful. I believe it fulfills all cooking needs. The center griddle is also very handy but does take a bit to get hot. Once heated, however, it is a wonderful tool. Do read through the the proper cleaning instruction to ensure a long lasting appliance.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Have had this gas stove top only a few weeks. So easy to turn on, even distribution. Have used griddle several times to heat naan and tortillas... works well. Let it cool all the way down before cleaning. Right now I need to buff with soft cloth after using soapy sponge to get the new look back all the way.
Looking To Make Changes

Pros: Burners work great and the area around the burners are easy to clean. Cons: the electric griddle takes Forever to heat, temperature is off from setting, and the unit requires an hour to clean.

Ultimately a DISAPPOINTMENT
By Bill Garver
from Franklin, OH
The gas burner performance is satisfactory. The Even-Heat™ Chrome Electric "Griddle" though is such a let down in not only maintaining but also performance. I can deal with the maintaining appearance aspect. I crank the "griddle" up to 500 on the dial. 40 minutes later, I get a temp reading of 156 degrees on my (calibrated) IR temp gun. 156 degrees??!! What the hell can I do with a 156 degree griddle besides barely melt butter?
from United States
We debated buying the range/oven combo, but decided on the cook-top. Glad we did. The style looks great, nice style and functional.

Electric Griddle is a nightmare
By Sick and disgusted
from Fort Smith, Ar
I have the unit with the Even-Heat Chrome Electric Griddle and everything sticks and is a nightmare to clean. I called and did not receive a good solution to the problem. This unit is too expensive to not work properly.
Looks fantastic, and works great!

Just built a new house with all Kitchenaid appliances. This cooktop is first class! I love the look, the size and the use! I haven't used the griddle yet, but the burners are super. There are different sizes for different cooking needs. I love it!

Had all KITCHENAID appliances installed in my brand new home. Love the quality but have a few "issues" that should not be in a + $3,000 cooktop.First - The Griddle is a BEAR to clean and almost impossible to use without food sticking to the surface. While any food that contains grease will cook fine... MAN-O-MAN....what a mess to clean. A Blanchard cooking surface would transform the cooktop. Further...you have to cover the surface when cooking on the burners because it will get covered with anything that splatters out of a pot or pan. Many crevices and mating surfaces for food to lodge in that makes it even more difficult to clean.Second - Only the flame on the largest burner can be adjusted down low enough for a super-low-simmer. The small simmer burner....uh....NOT! Whatever you place on that burner...in the lowest flame position....will boil. Don't get me wrong. The materials and workmanship are TOP NOTCH but the design and functional usefulness is a real head scratcher. I love to cook and am getting along OKAY but would be so much more enjoyable if I didn't have to deal with all of this.If I had it to do over, I would NOT order with the griddle. It looks great but simply ain't worth it to use. I will be experimenting to find a way to use it because it is a fantastic idea and would be extremely helpful in many instances.
