I love the 5 burners on my stovetop, I have had so many compliments on the looks. The burners are spaced enough apart to put my pans on. I just love cooking, and now I can heat everything all at once.

THE GOOD - Installed this Feb 2015 and was very happy with the way it looked on our island. Nearly 2-years later, we haven't had any performance issues. Only option was electric and this product seemed to be the best price/performance mix at the time of purchase.

THE JUST OK - While the cooktop has not stopped working and we haven't issues with operation, it does take a very long time to heat up your foods and brutally long to boil water. If you are used to cooking with gas, you will not be super happy with this type of cooktop. If you cook often with a lot of pans, the small front burners could be better placed as sometime pans to fit as you want. ALSO - as other reviewers have stated, you have to be very committed in order to keep this thing clean. I'm sure this is the nature of this type of product, but if you cook a lot, know you will be cleaning a lot.

THE BAD - Glass cooktop chipped and a large crack has occurred near the knob location. Sure, we must of caused it, but neither cook in the house can remember when the chip/crack happened. Note - the warranty won't cover this type of accidental coverage and there is NO fix for this type of issue. My reasoning for a 2-star review is simply the lack of either a better design (full frame) or warranty coverage makes purchasing this cooktop a high-risk proposition.

Comments about Maytag 36" Black Electric Cooktop:

Have only been using it for a few weeks but so far, so good. Love the flexibility of the two dual-size burners as well as the fifth burner that is handy for keeping things warm. Heats up fast! I dislike the fact that the black surface shows every bit of lint, dust, or smudge but that's not a function of the cooktop. The knobs arrived scuffed, but I haven't yet asked the appliance store about replacing them so I can't comment on that. One feature I have to get used to is the way the knobs turn. They don't have an arrow or lined indicator on them so I find myself sometimes turning to "single" burner rather than "dual" and vice versa. (I took one star off the "ease of use" category because of that.) But I will become accustomed to that in time. I didn't rate the "sound levels" for this since there aren't any to speak of.

nice but hard to keep clean

Comments about Maytag 36" Black Electric Cooktop:

heats fairly well and quickly on larger burners. Smaller burner take a long time. Capacity is great but have a hard time having five pots on it at once. Scratches very easily and has to be continuously cleaned since it shows every bit of dust and finger print

We purchased the 36 inch cooktop a couple of months ago to replace an ancient Thermador cooktop. The solid surface cooktop heats up quickly and the dual units match the pan sizes exactly.

So far so good.
Some features missing are hot surface indicator for each burner and knobs indicator which side is on or off.
May be move biggest burner to front and move one small one to back side.

Comments about Maytag 36" Black Electric Cooktop:

I bought this cooktop to replace an Amana cooktop. Works ok, but the quality is not the best, the price is good, the burner in the middle for warm is a waste of space, the two lateral burners are two small for medium pans. There should be one medium in one side. So far, so good. I missed I used to have an indicator of which burner was hot and not only one who indicates there is a burner that is hot. the switch doesn't indicate a number, I missed that too. I saw better ones, but more expensive and that occupy more space in width. That one is ok.

Comments about Maytag 36" Black Electric Cooktop:

Love the way the cook top looks in my kitchen island. And was glad we could also get a vent to go with it that could be vented under the house. My only disappointment was with the warming burner. The first time I used it, it almost burned what was in the pan - it is 'too hot' to be called a warmng burner.

Comments about Maytag 36" Black Electric Cooktop:

An attractive stove top with nice features. The dual element on two burners is a nice feature. Cleaning is more difficult than I thought it would be. If food gets cooked onto the glass it takes some serious scrubbing to remove it. Overall, a good unit.

good cooktop so far

By 

from Happy Camp, CA, United States

Comments about Maytag 36" Black Electric Cooktop:

Good cooktop but would like to have at least one large burner in front. I realize putting larger burner in front would off set controls, but think it would be doable. I usually have to use the cleaner that came with the stove to remove spills. At least i can clean the stove and not have to replace drip pans every few weeks. Installation was easy but had to enlarge depth a quarter inch. Heats fast, looks good when clean. I got the black thinking it would clean easier. But black shows streaks when not totally clean. I do not know if the white would be any better at not showing streaks.
