Love my cooktop

Comments about Whirlpool 36" Black Gas Cooktop:
I bought this cooktop 3 years ago in anticipation of redoing our kitchen. We had to postpone the project and put it into storage. This summer we finally redid the kitchen and the cooktop looks as good as the first time I saw it. Five burners are the right size for us and the fact that the knobs are not near the front edge is a plus with 5 little grandchildren. The burners are well spaced for ease of use, the grates are heavy duty and keep their position when sliding pans around. The glass top makes cleanup easy. All in all, I'm very pleased!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Finally, great heat control!
from Pinckney, MI
I chose this cook top because of its ease of cleaning up - but I received so much more. Not only is it visually beautiful, but it has the best heat control of any cook top I have ever used. It's a dream come true for simmering and cooking. The clean up on this top is super quick and easy and keeps my kitchen looking tidy and clean. The fifth burner is very helpful during canning and big dinners. I used to have a grill there, and never used it. I would buy this cook top again and highly recommend it to anyone. A great price too!

We love this unit, we've had it for about 6 months and it has worked great for us. Lots of space to cook and easy to use. Definitely glad we got this!

Impossible to keep shiny and smear free. No adjustment screw
This cooktop looks very nice on my granite countertop. This cooktop came with the new "spec" home we purchased so I didn't have a choice. I have always cleaned my range/cooktops after each use and with stainless steel tops it was always a quick and easy task. With this gas-on-glass surface it is a major production! It is impossible to just wipe the glass clean as the glass turns cloudy and the way it is designed makes it difficult to clean around knobs without removing them (they do not easily come off). I've tried Dawn (grease cutting formula), glass-ceramic top cleaners, vinegar, and even stainless steel cleaners (which actually worked the best) but no matter how many cleaners I use or how many times I go over the glass and wipe, wipe, wipe and wipe, it takes forever to get a nice streak and smear free surface... and it is never "perfect", there is always some residual greasy smears left! I absolutely HATE this cooktop. Secondly, the gas burners are not adjusted correctly. The flame on the left front power burner makes a hissing sound and uneven flames with some yellow tips. Whirlpool said to have the gas flow checked so I've had the plumber, and gas company out. My gas pressure is correct and I was told many burners have adjustment screws (my previous Thermador Star cooktop had adjustments) to correct this, but we were not able to find an adjustment on this cooktop and Whirlpool was of no help. So, I'm just living with it for now. My final complaint is that both power burners are in the front positions and both simmer burners are in back positions. It would be nice to have one simmer burner up front and one power burner in the back.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
