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.

A great cooktop
from Florida, United States
Comments about KitchenAid 30" Black Electric Cooktop:
I'm very happy with this so far. I notice the units are hotter, and heat up faster, than my old unit. I hope this one last a long time. I bought and used the protector, and it has really worked well.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Fast heating and fine heat control
We have had the induction cooktop for about 5 months and have been super pleased with it. Easy cleanup - nothing gets cooked onto the surface as with a traditional resistance element. VERY fast to heat the contents of a pan and the heat control is predictable, instant and very fine grained. Easy to use, love the "simmer" feature. Make sure you obtain the glue for mounting the install rails to a solid surface countertop, it isn't included with the cooktop. Fairly easy to install but you need to pay attention to get the height right so the cooktop is supported by the rails underneath and NOT by the glass.

This Cooktop has been excellent; easy to clean, cooks evenly, and has a beautiful look.

Beautiful cooktop. Still getting used to the touchpad, but it works perfectly.

We purchased this to replace an old cooktop and this is so gorgeous . It heats up food quickly and looks sleek. Very happy with it.
Very different in a great way!

We purchased the induction cooktop three months ago and we are really enjoying using it.
Great Induction Cooktop

My fiancÃ© was very impressed and loves it. You have to have stainless bottom cookware. But there is non stick ones out there just take a magnet and test the bottoms. If it sticks your good.
Hard to clean
from Savannah, GA, United States
This cooktop is not just hard to clean, it is almost impossible to clean. It cooks well and heats quickly, but the stove's glasslike black surface always looks smeary and is almost impossible to make streak-free. Cooked-on food is virtually impossible to clean.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great cooktop with one misleading description
Heats cast iron super fast--so fast that on I cracked a griddle because I let it heat up for about 45 seconds on Boost. Accurate controls, fast cooking, very low, consistent slow-cooking temps. My only complaint: there are no electronics in the bowtie-shaped area between the so-called "bridge" burners. All that setting does is control the two burners simultaneously. I discovered this when I realized that the middle of our griddle was not heating up as much as the ends. On our old electric cooktop, there were actually heating elements in that area. If you do a lot of griddle cooking, check for another brand or model that will actually heat that area; they're available.
Excellent control of cooking heat finally!

I bought this Kitchenaid downdraft electric cooktop about two months ago. I love it. I have so much more control of the temperature than I did with my old JennAir. I am sorry I waited so long to replace my old cooktop. I had it repaired twice.
