I LOVE my new Whirlpool 36" gas cooktop! I love having 5 burners. My huge pots and pans actually fit without crowding! Control placement works great for me and is safe for my kids who cook. We had gas for years, inherited electric in our new home and got used to it....but...there's nothing like gas, so we paid to install gas in our new home, and I'm so glad we did! We seriously considered induction cooktops, but with a house full of kids who cook, I felt the control with gas (what you see is what you get: big flame = big heat/little flame = low heat is intuitive) would better suit our needs. The cooktop is beautiful. My only concern is that it stays that way! The grates are really nice as well.

I've had this for about 6 months and am overall pleased. I installed it myself, replacing and old and worn out stovetop. I like that it has 5 burners with the power burner for quickly boiling water. The surface under the cast iron grates is easy to clean as are the grates. I have one design suggestion - it would be nice to be able to re-configure the location of the burners. I would prefer to have the simmer burner in the from instead of the middle back, switching it with the power burner. The only complaint I have is that the burner knobs are not the best quality and break when taking them off when cleaning. I broke two which were promptly replaced when I called customer service.

Comments about Whirlpool 36" Black Gas Cooktop:
This cooktop was installed in the new home I purchased in June 2012. After 16-18 months from new, we began to experience intermittent issues with the spark control: with the burners in the OFF position, the cooktop would start sparking some or all burners. If we unplugged/re-plugged, the issue stopped. 3 months ago, the issue surfaced again, but now all burners would spark CONSTANTLY (again, all knobs in OFF position). We now have to keep the unit unplugged and lit with a match. Worse still, the seal around the large burner control knob is gummed up can no longer be used. Very disappointed to have these issues after 3 yrs of mild use. Research carefully before you buy.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comment on this review
from Crossville, TN
The cooktop looks great, performance is excellent its the finish again (same problem with all the new Whirlpool appliances I purchased..cooktop, 36" convection oven, microwave, dishwasher, range hood)It is difficult to clean, early on I had a small drop of egg white on the surface and it was impossible to remove. Per the instructions I used a nylon sponge and it scratched the surface!!! I am sick about this as I only had it 6 months. Ive had other cooktops, always loved Whirlpool but on this series of finish they dropped the ball. No help from Whirlpool. I would recommend the product but stay away from the stainless!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Cooking grates are challenging with a small pan -- need to b
from Southern California
I have not yet used it very many times. Seems okay except for my comment about the cooking grates with some "prongs" being shorter and then must use caution to make sure pan will not tip or topple.
Great burner but poor lableing
I chose this burner for my brand new home and it works great. I am very disappointed, however, with how quickly the labeled areas wore off (less than three months).
Works like a champ

We upgraded our cooktop to this model a month ago and are very happy with the upgrade. The cooktop gives us nice choices in the size of the burners and is available for every kind of utility.

A Truly Great Cooktop!
from Ohio, United States
We bought this over a year ago and just had it installed. It's amazing how quickly our food is prepared because it cooks so fast. Other than the grates moving a little too easily, we love it!
Made my life easy!
from Stanley, NC, United States
With the gas cooktop I cook quicker and is easy to clean. I have no regrets with my purchase. Stainless Steel is good quality.
Simply the best!
from Clovis, CA, United States
This gas range was a featured appliance in our new home. I was excited because the Whirlpool brand is always one I choose because they are so reliable and last along time. Since using this range I have not been disappointed! It ignights instantly, it's easy to use and it is super easy to clean up!!
