The cooktop is easy to clean. The different size cook elements make it easy to fit different size pans. the design is sleek and classy and I like the fact that it has knobs. It is easy to select just the right temperature that you need for different temperature cooking needs. I also like the simmer and melt feature. A really great cooktop.

I had this cook top in an appliance package (architect series)in our new Shea home we built. It looks beautiful, but is a nightmare to clean. It scratches so easily I hesitate to use it. I am so dissatisfied I am going to complain to Kitchen aide. I use the best stainless steel pans, clean and polish it all the time. It still has numerous scratches after only five months of use. I have had other brands of glass cooktops for years, and none of them were anything like this. I even had a Jenn Aire that was white, and so much easier to take care of.

Looks beautiful in my new kitchen
from Rio Grande
Bought it some time ago, love it. Looks great in my new kitchen.
heat indicator lights should be near the source of heat
from ann arbor, MI
i bought the stove top a few months ago, replacing a 40 year old appliance. the burners work well and there is a lot of flexibility. however, the indicator lights are all in the front and you cannot tell what burner is hot by sight unless you have just turned it on. For many this would not be a problem, but it is for me, and i have burnt myself a few times. it is also difficult to keep clean
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Alva, FL
Great cooktop! Heats up well and the temp adjusts well. The controls are easy to use and the layout of the cooktop is good. Looks very nice
Sleek, with great options
By Baby Boomer
For 5 burners you get lots of options. Some are dual (large and small), some heat fast and hot, some best for low melting temps or for keeping warm. Heats evenly with good control. Easy to keep clean. Sleek and attractive in a minimalist kind of way.
36-Inch, 5 Element Electric Cooktop w/Even-Heat Technology
from Atlanta, GA
I purchased this cooktop a few months ago, replacing an older KitchenAid cooktop, and I am very pleased with it. It took me a little while to become comfortable with using its flat surface instead of the metal burner-type cooktop. But, as I've used it more and more, I don't think I could go back to the other, older type.
Modern and Clean Looking
from Millbrae, CA
Have been using new cooktop for 2 months and are happy with its performance. It has taken a few weeks to learn how to use it. It has quite a few more features that our old range top had. Have much better control of temperature as it adjusts to how it is set so temperature remains constant.
from Bluffton, SC
fastest heat to boil of any stove I've owned.
Just what I was looking for
from Fort Worth
I bought this a month ago and it is very easy to use and is exactly what I was looking for.

scratches all over the place after the second time use
from Gilbert, Arizona
This is the worst cooktop I have ever had. I find a lot scratched all over the place after the second use. AND IT SMELLS LIKE BURNING PLASTIC! I HAVE NO IDEAS IF THE SMELLING IS POISONOUS OR NOT. BUT IT'S TO CLOSE TO WHAT YOU ARE EATING, I DO NOT FEEL SAFE! The truth is I did not buy this product, the builder did, so I will NEVER RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO ANYBODY! AND BECAUSE OF THIS, I WILL NEVER BUY ANY KITCHENAID PRODUCTS ANY MORE!!!
