No matter what I read and heard, nothing prepared me for how instantaneous the induction feature has been. Whatever pot/pan I choose to use, the configuration of the top is perfect for use. The ease of cleaning makes cooking delightful as does the instant cool down with toddlers present. The ability to so easily adjust the cooking temperature far exceeds its reputation leaving me totally satisfied with this purchase,

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:
My 15 yr. old Jennair cooktop died, and I gather Jennair is not up to par these days. I needed a downdraft cooktop, and KA has a good looking one. It cleans up well using the included solution. I'm still getting used to the dials and what heat they produce. Water boils quickly, stews ate tasty, hambergers turn out well. I'm pleased with my purchase.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

KITCHENAID 30" 4 ELEMENT DOWNDRAFT ELECTRIC COOKTOP
BOUGHT A FEW MONTHS AGO TO REPLACE A JENNAIRE COIL DOWNDRAFT COOKTOP; HEATS UP QUICKLY; LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT EXCEPT IT IS VERY HARD TO KEEP CLEAN. SURFACE HEAT ADJUSTS QUICKLY.
from Leland, NC, United States
Heats up very fast and exhasut fan in middle works amazingly well. It is a little hard keeping it clean and will require persistant work. I haven't used it that much but still takes some TLC. Pay close attention when cutting on eyes -- easy to mistake which one you're working with.
from Conyers, Ga
I purchased this stove in July of this year. I really like the cool down features. It looks very nice in my kitchen.

Way too difficult to deal with
By angry kitchen bird
from Tempe, AZ, United States
I used a small induction cooktop and loved it. When I bought this unit I find that the controls are too sensitive. If I lean a utensil on the pan I am using and don't watch carefully it may turn the unit off. If I put too much water on my sponge when washing the unit it beeps at me. As a matter of fact it beeps at me all the time it seems.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Iowa City, IA, United States
I picked out all new appliances when I had my kitchen remodeled 5 months ago and my induction cooktop is my favorite of the bunch. I can make a pan of pasta faster than I could boil water on my old ceramic stove. And the temperature control is amazing. It's so responsive I no longer burn things. Only the surface area beneath the pan is hot, so nothing spilled sticks to any of the surface. My stove is as clean and shiny as the day it was installed 5 months ago.
Next best thing to gas
from Dallas, TX, United States
I have had my induction top for a year now and love it. I really wanted gas but was too cost prohibitive to convert. This is as close as it gets. Heat control is excellent along with instant cool down. Love the boost to get things boiling extremely quickly. Cleaning is a breeze. I wish I would have had the space for a larger one.
Great looks and function
from Charlotte, NC, United States

We needed an electric downdraft cooktop. This one looks great. Works good. Still figuring out some of the nuances.
