This product is exactly as advertised. the quick boil feature is awesome. The temperature control is much more flexible than the one on my prior cooktop.

Purchased this to replace Kitchenaid glass cooktop purchased in 1992.The glass cooktop is impossible to clean thoroughly. Cooked on oil/grease takes maximum effort to remove using cooktop cleaner.In my opinion, you should go back to the glass supplier/glass formulation you used in 1992.If I weren't selling my house in a year, I would send this back to you and buy another brand. That is how disappointed I am in this product.

Don,t like it
from Miami, Fl
Hate my new cooktop, small burners on the back, behind the big burner, very uncomfortable to use, surface gets dirty fast and hard to clean, if place something hot on top of the controls it shuts down, don't recomend it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

New KitchenAid Appliances
from Venice, FL
We have had KitchenAid appliances for years. We relocated and remodeled our kitchen and installed a new KitchenAid dishwasher, convention wall oven and microwave/convection oven combination and cook top. We could not be more pleased. All appliances are performing flawlessly and look great. We have not gotten a new refrigerator yet but look forward to getting a KitchenAid French door unit also.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Falls short of Kitchenaid quality
from Las Vegas, NV
I have the Kitchenaid high end refrigerator and love it. When my 20-year GE Profile glass stovetop quit working, I got the stovetop by Kitchenaid. Don't like it at all. Good points..it is beautiful. It has great sized burners that heat up quickly. The stove has no knobs so it is easy to clean...kinda. You have to push the control lock if you want to do any scrubbing on it. Bad points...I don't like the one control for all the burners. It is a slide type you run your finger on. Not accurate and too sensitive. Worst, however, is that the large burners are supposed to simmer on the simmer setting:. They don't simmer. They just warm. (There is a warm and a melt setting for all the burners, btw.) Using the slide bar to get a simmer, 3 is too high and 2 is too low, so the pot requires near constant attention. The small eyes do simmer, though. Just the large ones are afflicted. I wish I could take it back for a more accurate range top that is easier to use. I also miss a built in timer that my old stovetop had. Sorry, Kitchenaid. You need to fire this designer and try again.
30" Electric Cooktopo

Cooking part is good, however I'ts hard to along the pots and pans on the burner unless its lit up and seems to show dirt/grim much more than my previous cooktop. also should have a burner further the front on right side.

Looks Beautiful, cooks lousy.
By Pance, the investigator
from Longview TX
I purchased my cooktop a year ago after spending much time checking and reading about cooktops. I had the coils which I loved. I cannot get the burner adjusted-either too hot, or not hot enough. I love the feature of two burners with adjustable sizes and I use those. But I tell it to cook at say #7 and it will be on 3 or 4 or 5 in a few minutes. I had coils that I could set for a temperature, say 350, and it would stay there. They don't make that stove anymore. I am always afraid I am going to drop something or break it. I have a friend who did. I would love to have my old cooktop back (in new condition, of course.) I have been replacing all of my original GE appliances with Kitchenaid. So far, I have been pleased with the dishwasher, oven, ice machine,and disposal. Disappointed in cooktop.
Would not buy it again.

Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was fast and well packaged.
from Houston, TX
Love this cooktop! We had the knob control model previously, but decided to replace it with this sleek touch control cooktop 5 months ago during a kitchen remodel. Are we glad! The touch panel allows precise temperature control with large digital readout. This cooktop heats faster than gas. The Ultra-Hot burner really will boil a large pot of water in less than 10 minutes! The lock feature keeps little fingers from turning on a burner accidentally. Cerama-Bryte cooktop cleaner gets the job done with little effort, and there are no knobs to remove for cleaning. Yay KitchenAid!

Quality & Customer Service Very Disappointing
from Olympic Peninsula, WA
This cooktop was installed with our remodel in June 2015. We purchased a set of the KitchenAid Cookware set that was recommended by KitchenAid to us. We have regularly used the cleaning products recommended by KitchenAid. Unfortunately, the front left burner has many scratches on it. We have contacted KitchenAid via the website and a week later we still have no response. After a 10+ minute phone wait hoping for resolution. Will update...
Sleek and Smooth
One of the heating elements on my old ceramic cooktop had stopped working. This KitchenAid does an excellent job, the elements heat up quickly and evenly. I can really see a difference in how much faster the water boils when cooking pasta. Real time saver.
from aventura, florida
