KitchenAid 30" Black Induction Electric Cooktop, Model KICU500XBL

Thinking of buying a KitchenAid Cooktop? Then look no further than the KitchenAid 30" Black Induction Electric Cooktop, Model KICU500XBL. With an induction cooktop, you'll receive one of the most responsive cooktops available. Induction cooktops have been designed to make sure that even if accidentally left on, no one will be burned. This is due to magnets that sense how much metal is on the cooktop. If the amount of ferrous metal isn't large enough, the cooktop will remain off. In addition, this KitchenAid Electric Cooktop offers a Performance Boost Function that allows you to exceed the maximum heat-level setting for up to 10 minutes, letting you quickly boil water. To sweeten the deal, this KitchenAid Cooktop offers a Melt & Hold function that uses low power levels for melting ingredients that typically burn if exposed to excessive heat. Experience a new generation of cooking with a KitchenAid Induction Cooktop.

Features:

  • 4-Element Cooktop - Provides four independent cooking surface areas.
  • 9 Heat Level Settings - Provide the versatility to select the power level needed to handle everything from searing to sautéing.
  • Performance Boost - Allows you to exceed the maximum heat-level setting for up to 10 minutes, perfect for rapid boiling
  • Touch-Activated Controls - Integrate seamlessly into the surface and include a slider for heat-level selection
  • Simmer Function - Automatically selects a low power level to help maintain a constant simmer without boiling over.
  • Melt and Hold - Uses low power levels for melting delicate ingredients or keeping cooked food warm without scorching.
  • Pan Size Detection - Provides feedback on whether pan size is suitable for the selected element.

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 would NOT recommend buying this stove at all. We had this stove delivered and installed by Jenaire. At first we thought what a great stove. However the stove broke down within a week to month of use and was replaced not one, not two but four times. After the 4th time that the unit was replaced we gave up and decided to buy a completely different brand.

We went with a Bosch. To this day we love the Bosch and have had no difficulties with it.

Works great!

Comments about KitchenAid Black Induction Electric Cooktop:

Love it! Was a bit apprehensive going to induction from lots of years cooking with either gas or electric. Glad I made the switch. Precise temperature control, can keep things at a steady slow boil, simmer etc. without constant vigilance for boil overs. Also, no scalding hot burners to to inadvertently touch.

Please consider putting the large burner in front as the microwave is above the stove top.

frustrating

By 

from Salt Lake City

Comments about KitchenAid Black Induction Electric Cooktop:

Got this appliance in a remodel

The "great" detection of pan size function that KitchenAid boasts of is one of my biggest complaints.

Want to make a package of Ramen noodles, heat up a single serving of oatmeal? Boil a cup of water? Forget it.

The burner is too big to allow a small pan. I have to use a pan that is big enough for the burner size circle to boil a couple cups of water, which makes the water lever 1/4 inch in the pot. Most of my water is evaporated by the time it boils. The Ramen noodles block is more than half way above the water line by the time I have cooked it for a minute.

It is such an obvious design flaw, that I am astounded it passed inspection by any seasoned cook who might have tested this cooktop.

The large burner has a smaller circle inside of it for smaller pans to be allowed on it, why not something like this for the small burner?

Also, if you're boiling potatoes and the water bubbles out even a little bit, as in water drops that occasionally splatter out, the stove just SHUTS OFF. I can't tell you how often I have to carefully wipe away ALL the water, and restart my cooktop while in the middle of making soup or potatoes or steaming vegetables.

Occasionally, the cooktop will beep and turn off in the middle of cooking something without any apparent reason.

I would like to use this cooktop as a landing spot for cookie sheets just out of the oven, but more often than not, the cooktop will buzz loudly and then make a prolonged "BEEEEP!" every 5 seconds for about 20 minutes, and NOTHING will stop it- I just have to wait it out with that grating beeping going off loudly.

This beeping will occasionally happen even when a cold glass or metal bowl or pan touches the cooktop.

That said, the cooktop heats up quickly, looks good, and is a dream to keep clean.

I would do a lot more shopping and research in the future if I had to purchase another induction cooktop. Just because something is made by a brand like KitchenAid, doesn't mean it's going to be good quality.

I would make a different choice in brands if I could do it again.

Still learning

By 

from Nashville, TN

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Black Induction Electric Cooktop:

I'm still learning how to cook by induction. One problem I have had is seeing exactly where the heating area is when the pan is on the "burner." The "burner" won't let me use a pan small enough to see the outline of the heating area. Any suggestions?

Comments about KitchenAid Black Induction Electric Cooktop:

What can I say...I love it. Having cooked with gas for the last twenty years, I moved to a place without a gas option. The induction cooktop gives me greater control over my cooking than the gas did. I am so pleased I went with induction. I am also pleased, as I have been for years, with KitchenAid.
