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,

Not So Sure About This One

I've used this cooktop for 2 months now. 1st off, know that you will need to buy new "induction" capable cookware if you don't have that from the previous cooktop you owned (meaning "magnetic" cookware). And you need to buy good stuff (like All Clad), not cheap. So there is a huge cost off the top. If that is good for you (it was for us) and you do buy this cooktop, you need to know about the "bridge" feature. It is a feature that Kitchenaid and most likely whatever Kitchenaid dealer sells it to you, will tout. The "bridge" feature is that two "surface cooking areas" of the same size on one side of the Cooktop will form a "bridge" connecting said two areas together when this feature is on, so you can use a griddle or grill on it. Nice idea, but the problem is the two surface cooking areas, when combined using the "bridge" feature, equals an oval shaped surface cooking area that is 15.25-inches by 7.25-inches. There is no induction capable griddle or pan made in the world that fits that size, plus griddles and grills usually come in a rectangular shape. I called Kitchenaid to ask if "they" made a griddle or grill that fits this "bridge" feature. Made sense, right? After some hold time, the agent came back and said that they did have one griddle that would fit the oval shape, but it was not "induction" capable. Huh? What good is that information to me? Nice. Not. So then I asked if the grill or griddle could be larger than the surface cooking area since most griddles or grills are bigger their "bridge" feature (and rectangular, not oval). She told me "No." Some info on size is found in 2 places in the owners manual. One place says, "The diameter of the pan's base should be equal to the size of the element. If the pan is too small, the burner does not sense the pan and will not activate" The other place says, "Choose the correct pan size for each surface cooking area. The diameter of the pan's base should correspond to the size of the surface cooking area." There is nothing that says that if your cookware (in this case a griddle or grill) is bigger than the surface cooking area, then the burner will not sense it and thus not activate. My question now is, "Was the agent wrong when she told me that if the pan was bigger, the burner would not work?" I have since written an email to Kitchenaid to ask this same question because the agent I spoke with seemed very tentative in her knowledge of "induction" cooktops. At the end of our conversation I then pressed the agent saying, "So, Kitchenaid created a "bridge" feature selling point, which our Kitchenaid appliance representative used with us, that cannot be used in "bridge" mode due to the fact that no one in the world makes an "induction capable" grill or griddle that fits the exact size of the "bridge?" And because of this, the "bridge" is useless, but useful to Kitchenaid (and the dealers of Kitchenaid Induction Cooktops)as a selling point." She sounded kind of sheepish as she told me, "Yeah, I guess." I added that it was really odd to me that the Kitcheaid Innovation team would create what at first seems like a really nice feature, but then not even tell the Kitchenade Cookware department about it to ask them to make a grill or griddle that fit. It actually would have been nicer if the Kitchenaid Innovation team had checked the standard size of most griddles/grills and made their "bridge" feature to fit. Hello! I'm still waiting to hear back from Kitchenaid, but in the meantime, they have sent me an email asking me to write reviews on the FIVE major appliances we bought from them. You'd think with us having bought FIVE, they'd be quick to respond especially since the email says,"We value your opinion and would love to hear your feedback." Really? I would not recommend any Kitchenaid Induction Cooktops with the "bridge" feature because unless they fix the problem, it's a waste of your money!

Fast Accurate Cooking!

By 

from Louisville, KY

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Black Induction Cooktop:

We purchased this appliance to replace an older electric unit that was going out. We had previously been debating on getting gas but now I am glad that we went with induction. It is truly the best of both worlds - FAST, responsive, accurate cooking without the risk of an open flame (we have a little one). The cooktop is easy to clean because spills don't get burned on, as heat is generated inside the pan. I've had beautiful results, no burns, and my kitchen looks cleaner longer. It's also simple to use and has a sleek look with no bulky buttons. I love it!

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Black Induction Cooktop:

We have been using induction for 8 years, needed to replace, wouldn't consider a different type of cooktop, really like the induction. Love the bridge feature between burners, for large batch pancakes or bacon and eggs. Easy to clean surface, nice sleek look in our kitchen.

Buy an Induction cooktop!!!

By 

from Chino Hills, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Black Induction Cooktop:

We remodeled our kitchen with ALL Kitchenaid black stainless appliances. It is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! We wanted a simple, easy to clean cooktop that complemented our black stainless appliances. We had to special order the cooktop, nobody had it in stock. We didn't get a chance to see one in person before buying it, but we were not disappointed. It is gorgeous and performs AMAZING. This cooktop is the best cooktop I have EVER had. GREAT to cook on and cleans VERY EASY.

I will never again trust Whirlpool Corporation or purchase KitchenAid products after the miserable and dissatisfied experience I recently had trying to get your company to honor my rebates.

Glad we bought the cooktop

By 

from DOYLESTOWN PA

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Black Induction Cooktop:

When shopping to replace our failed Jenn air cooktop, we were considering all of the leading brands-- GE, Bosch, Jenn air, and Kenmore. I read the reviews of many models within these brands, and found reviewers complaining of problems for all these brands. The leading problem was cookware compatibility. I went to cookware sites like WS, and read what readers shared regarding compatibility of various brands. I saw the fewest issues with kitchen aid. I was a little leery about buying another kitchen aid appliance, given the bad luck I had with one of their refrigerators. We've had the cooktop for a few months now and are very happy.

Overall great

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Black Induction Cooktop:

I'm enjoying the induction cooking so far. It looks great in my kitchen. My only issue is with cleaning it. Ceramabrite was recommended to clean it, and I find it takes a while to buff it so it's not streaked. That might just be me figuring out the amount of cleaner necessary.

Bridging feature, induction cooktop

By 

from Anchorage, AK

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Black Induction Cooktop:

At the recommendation of the salesman, we purchased a 4 element induction cooktop with largely based on the bridging (oval pan/griddle) feature. The bridging function is useless as there is no cookware manufacturer who sells an appropriately sized griddle. We were persuaded to buy this unit based on the flexibility that the bridging feature seems to provide. I would recommend you taking the time to do web research on user experience with the unit before purchasing. It seems unreasonable to create the bridging function and then not have a suitable griddle available.
