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,

I installed the cooktop myself for the first time. It was easy enough but I won't go into details. As for functionality, it does heat up fast. I am a little disappointed at the melt/simmer features or even the lower heat settings as the element heats up/lights up full power (it looks like) and then turns off. It cycles through this for as long as you're cooking. This can't be good form a reliability stand point. We'll see. I'd thought it would be like a gas cooktop or a coil cooktop where if you set it low, the heat would be low, not turn off and on. I didn't read it anywhere in the descriptions or reviews that it did this. Clean up is really hard especially if the spill goes into the cooking area. You're probably not going to stop cooking to clean it. So you're stuck with a carbon burn/stain that will only be removed with a razor blade. For stains outside the circle that won't come off easily, I use Cerama Bryte. It works well. For daily cleaning, I've had to come up with a process. It involves both hands, one with a towel with cleaner and one with a dry towel. Right after one hand with wet towel cleans, the other hand with dry towel immediately dries to prevent streaking. My wife can't prefect the timing so I'm stuck with the cleaning duties. The downdraft has low, medium and high settings but all three setting sound the same. I took an air flow meter and verified all three speeds are the same. At least it did measure at the rated air flow CFM even though it seems weak. And finally, the air flow grill is deformed. It does not sit flush with the opening. Each end (long-wise) sits about 1/4 inch above the cooktop surface. I've read other reviews regarding the airflow speeds and the deformed grill.

Beautiful until the glass breaks
from Midlothian, TX, United States
I've had this cooktop for 4 yrs now. It looked great for a short time until a glass bottle of oil toppled and you can see the damage in the pic I've attached. I can't seem to justify spending hundreds of dollars to replace the glass when it's bound to break again since there is no protective frame around the glass. It looks very ugly! I've called Kitchenaid about it and they don't have a frame kit to sell me. I'll eventually have to buy a different brand cooktop...definitely one with a frame! Until then, I'll have this ugly, broken Kitchenaid cooktop for all to see:-/

I bought this a month ago to replace my Jennaire cook top. It is very attractive and works according to mfgr description. Is a little harder to keep clean - boil overs are a pain to clean.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Love the cooktop
from Memphis, TN, United States
we have enjoyed our cooktop. It works great and cleans easily.
Fast to heat to desired temp.

Cook top works great, BUT it is hard to see the burner print on the cooktop, the print is a dull gray and with the reflection on the ceramic top it is hard to see the print.
Works like a charm!
from Chesterfield, MO, United States
This is my first smooth service electric cooktop for my island. The heating elements are fast to heat up and really get things cooking. I like the configuration of the elements and the downdraft is powerful. Cleaning the cooktop takes time but it's not too difficult. I never liked the looks of the large knobs but that was my only option with a downdraft. I would have preferred digital!
