We bought this cooktop to replace an older gas cooktop when we put in granite countertops. We got matching electric double ovens at the same time. The counter guys cut the opening according to the installation instructions. I removed the old cooktop and installed the new one myself. The installation instructions are easy to follow and not difficult at all. The old cooktop had pilot lights and this one uses electronic ignition. This is safer and of course does not produce any heat unless cooking. It does require an electrical outlet. I was able to run the line from a nearby service panel. If you do not have an outlet nearby, an electrician should be able to do this for you. I also had to extend a gas line to the right side of the cabinet. The old cooktop connected on the left side. A plumber can do this for you if your connection is not in the proper location. The location of the electrical and gas connections are well illustrated in the installation documents sent with the cooktop. I got the instructions online before the cooktop was delivered so that all of the cabinet work, gas and electrical connections were in place before the cooktop arrived. The installation then was very quick. The cooktop worked well. The largest burner can really put out the heat for large pots. The top is easy to clean if there are any spills. We like the griddle that replaces the grill over the two burners on the left side. The grill and griddle are both heavy for my wife. The griddle works well for meats, sandwiches, tortillas, French toast. The surface slopes slightly to allow grease to drain, but this makes cooking pancakes or eggs more difficult, because they run into the drain. Overall we like the cooktop. It looks very nice and will handle any of you cooking requirements.

I can not recommend this cook top. The knobs say they are removable, but I cant get them off. The grates are so high off the burner you have to cook everything on high and if you want to brown something, you have to put it on the power boiler. The boiler would be great, if it wasn't for the grate height. It takes longer to boil and cook then with my old electric. The griddle is cool for pancakes and french toast, but you can only get one batch of bacon done before the reservoir fills up with grease.

nice and large and easy to use
from Los Banos, CA, United States
Came with our new home and we are very happy with the size of the burners and the space you have for your pans and pots, and all the burners do a wonderful job heating thins up.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Beautiful, easy to clean!
from Belleville, IL, United States
My husband has always wanted a gas grill. WE love this grill! I think it is ashame that we are being encouraged to buy a warranty package on an appliance we have only had for 5 months. No confidence vote in american products not built to last!
Wonderful Stove Top

Stainless scratches easily. Other than that the stove works fine.

Poor Quality of key parts
from Georgia, United States
The gas range overall is very good quality with the exception of the "Range Knob Assembly". It is a poorly designed plastic assembly that will brake within months, making the whole gas range literally useless, unless you buy overpriced replacement parts.

Professional appearance in the kitchen. Fantastic burners, rapid boiling, and perfect even heating of pans. Glad we upgraded to the Cafe series.
Main burner broken after 1 year (warranty expired)
from Mason, OH, United States
I bought this Aug 2015 based on many reviews and really regret it. The central (main) burner has stopped working. It became very stiff to operate (the actual shaft that controls gas flow) and the control knob broke. The warranty is for only one year so it is out of warranty. I'm beyond disappointed that an appliance that costs as much as it does did not last much past a year - in fact 6 weeks past the warranty expiration! The 'service' call will be expensive just to get someone out. Parts and labor are extra. Do not buy. I'll be communicating this to others.

GREAT FEATURS AND GREAT LOOK . I WOULD RECOMMEND IT
By Ken WL
I bought this product a few months ago and I am very pleased with not only the functional aspects but it is also very nice looking. Installation was a breeze as I was replacing an old cooktop, so it only took 20 minutes to install! The burner light quickly and burn evenly. I look forward to using the cooktop for years to come.
