This looks very pretty initially, but it is hard to clean. I see every speck of dust on it, which drives me nuts! I haven't had it very long, so am not sure what it will be like a year from now. I feel like I'm cleaning it constantly, because it shows everything. It cooks great though!

We replaced our old Jenn Air down draft with this new cooktop. It looked beautiful in the kitchen. However, one of the knobs had to be replaced within a week of installation. The heating elements on the large burners are very uneven, with medium setting being very high heat. It is impossible to clean-even for water that has boiled or splashed over. I have tried every cleaning product available for this type of cooktop, even home remedies such as baking soda and hot towels. Nothing removes the food stains/debris except scraping very carefully with razor blades, which leaves tiny scratches. I would never recommend this product. I spend hours trying to get it clean, and once it is clean I dread cooking again for fear of something spilling or splashing.

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Black Electric Cooktop:
I bought this cooktop for an interior island with no ductwork for exhaust. It works great with the duct-free kit that I purchased. Filters the smoke and cooking odors. Only fits this model, I think.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Clean lines. Surface residue issues.
from Danville, VA
The design and look is very appealing. Operation is simple and easy to follow. Only issue so far is the residue left from cooking pots around the burners. I have tried to use the Kenmore cleaning cream to remove any residue marks but they still remain. I expected the top to remain clean without any leftover cooking residue. This is not the case.

Looks great and works perfectly
from Ballwin, MO
I recently replaced my old Roper downdraft cooktop with the Kitchenaid downdraft electric cooktop. It works like a champ and makes the whole kitchen look better. With features like the dual element sizes on 2 of the elements, it's like I have 6 element sizes. It heats up quick and evenly. The "cooktop still warm" notification light makes sure someone doesn't touch a hot element. It is quieted and more efficient than my old cooktop. I couldn't be happier

screen in the downdraft area will not stay on the small ledge that is provided, the downdraft space is too small to put hand and arm to clean,very difficult to keep clean the surface area and the downdraft area
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Needed to replace an old downdraft cooktop, had to find one that would fit in the 'hole', this one worked very well. It looks great, cooks great. To keep it looking great, you need to clean it after every use. Using a cream cleaner, it cleans up well. The downdraft works great and isn't too loud. This was a good choice for us. Glad we made the purchase.
I love this cooktop
from Albuquerque, NM
I bought this to replace an existing JennAir cooktop. I love the KitchenAid! It's modern, clean, and heats up quickly and efficiently. Only drawback is that it's slightly hard to keep clean--I find it necessary to keep rubbing out the smears that appear. Otherwise a great appliance.
from Willow Creek
Easy installation. Downdraft position was easy to adjust. Stove controls are perfect.
Love my cook top!

Downdraft is awesome! only problem with cooktop so far is seeing the settings at the control knobs. Quick fix: Keep a flashlight handy :) otherwise, love my new cooktop!
