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:
I recently bought this to replace a 15 year old Jenn-Air with a broken burner. The exhaust works much better than the downdraft Jenn-Air ever did. The mirror-like black finish requires extra time to keep clean and polished, but having all of the controls on the right-hand side helps some. The smooth, black vent cover provides a sleek, attractive look. So far I'm very pleased with this purchase.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

cooks to perfection!
from San Diego, CA, United States
I bought a Kitchen Aid Induction Cooktop and I love it - it goes to highest heat immediately, then turns down to lowest of lows instantly. It sautÃ©s better than gas, simmers better than electric and you can clean up spills around a pot while it's still cooking. Highly recommend it!
Don't miss this one.

I have the advantage of being in the foodservice business. I purchased stand alone induction cooking units 6 yrs. ago and have literally gone away from any other cooking option. Imagine boiling over pasty water or a cheese sauce that just wipes up with a paper towel, without scrubbing, ANYTHING. No "hot" tops to worry about with small children running in the kitchen. Energy efficient, quicker time to boil and sautÃ©. Sure you need a pot or pan that magnets stick to but you'll appreciate the better quality of the pan and it will last longer and will not warp as they do on ceramic cooktops when you set the burner higher than necessary. And they said Star Wars hade all the neat high tech stuff.

I purchased this cooktop to replace the one I had for 20 years ( also Kitchen Aid). I love the look and the downdraft feature. It warms up very quickly. Not sure why the small burner on right front doesn't stay warm. Overall, I love it. I need to read more about the features

I've had this a couple of weeks and I'm very impressed with the speed. It boils 2 cups of water in 2 minutes.

I had always wanted a gas stove until I researched induction cooktops. This one meets and exceeds my expectations. Amazing to have instant heat under a cooking pot. I was pleasantly surprised at how much of my cookware worked with the induction elements. Highly recommend.
Wonderful flat surface.
from Virginia, United States
I love the large cooking surface and the dual heating surface is helpful. Clean up is a breeze!
Beauty and great cooking.
I love my new Kitchenaid cooktop with downdraft vent. It is beautiful and easy to clean.

This is our first induction range and we will never go back to ceramic or halogen. It is a perfect combination of style and function.

I like the unit very much, the only issue I have is that the fan cover doesn't fit as snuggly as I would like
