We just purchased a full line of Kitchen-aid products for our new kitchen. The 36" cook-top is so much nicer than the 30" standard versions. The extra 6" does not seem like a lot but it makes all the difference. Overall this unit is good but there are a few minor issues that you cannot know from a showroom. The surface is more difficult to clean than our previous Samsung glass cooktop. Even using the proper cooktop cleaner, it tends to smear as if there is a layer of oil on the surface. It takes a little more time and effort than I would like to spend to get it nice and clean and have that mirror finish that is expected from a glass cooktop. I like the fact that there are no knobs to trap dirt, but the buttons are sometimes difficult to use. the buttons are not as sensitive to touch as I would like and I have to push the buttons multiple times to get the desired result. I also wish that Kitchen-aid would offer a bridge on their standard model. The only 36" model available with the bridge is an induction model and we did not want to buy all knew pots and pans. The only other negative is the gap between the bottom of the cooktop and the countertop. The installers assured me that they were putting the gasket in the proper way, but food can get stuck under the cooktop because of this gap. Eventually I will just put a bead of caulk around it to close the gap but for the money, it should come with a proper gasket that seals the outer edge to the mounting surface so that there is not a gap under the unit.

Too high maintenance. You can't be cleaning the cooktop while you cook because it scratches the surface. You can see every little spec on the cooktop and need to be wiping it down all the time. I like my kitchen to be very clean, but this is way too much. It's hard to control the heating elements. Would return it if I could. Not happy with it at all.

Comments about KitchenAid 36" Stainless Electric Cooktop:
Took my wife a while to warm up to the idea of a regular burner system (We had an induction cooktop) but now she likes it very much. Got tired of having to carry a magnet in my pocket to find cookware. When I bought her a completely new non-stick cookware set (in her favorite color that I had been searching for years) for Christmas that had the "symbol" for induction heat on the box and cookware and did not work, that was the last straw. The swap was on.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After many years of using old appliances, my husband and I decided to purchase more up to date kitchen appliances. I have loved my new stovetop. I really like that it adjusts the heat to the size of the pot. Adjusting the heat is very easy and works wonderfully! The glass top is easy to keep clean.
The selection of temperature on burners
from Appleton, Wisconsin
We put the appliance in about a month ago and we love it! To have 5 burners is a treasure.
Easy to use and the styling of it is great!

Glad I went with all Kitchenaid appliances. Great styling and value.
Wonderful Product so far....
from Stanley, NC
We just moved into our new home on 12.30.16. Doing the move, I haven't cooked a lot but what I have, the cooktop works amazing... Took a little bit to get used to "no knobs" but I love it!!!!! Would recommend this product.
BEAUTIFUL and easy to clean
I replaced an earlier version of this range top because it cracked all the way acrossI assume a hot baking stone caused the crackI was lucky the newer model fits my space exactly and I do love how it looks and how it operates.
Very Glad I Bought This
from Monrovia, CA
I bought this because the top-of-the-line GE I bought six years ago was notoriously unreliable and was no longer being serviced by GE repairs, making the frequently needed parts nearly impossible to come by. Buying this KitchenAid was more than an up-grade, it was a game changer. I like to cook and I frequently have three or four things going at once. Managing the heat elements from one control panel is a breeze and I have no complaints, only praise.

I was able to install this cooktop myself with a few modifications to my kitchen counter. Very happy with the easy of install. Cooktop has 5 burners which is great. Problem was the middle burner didn't work at the very beginning. I was very upset since one of the reasons I bought was to have 5 burners for cooking on Christmas Day. Cooktop also displayed a H all the time which is meant to display a hot burner. Burners where all off and the H still displayed. We called customer service and scheduled a tech to come out. Four days later tech came out and said he would have to replace the control panel. So now we have to wait another two weeks. Month later we still don't have a working cooktop. This Monday tech supposed to be here to fix. If not working monday taking this back to the store for a refund which I probably should have done already. First time I purchased a KitchenAid product and possible last time
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Easy to use and clean.

This is a great cook top for an all electric house. I am a messy cook and the glass top cleans very easily and is easy to use. I love the agdustable heating element size. It is a great feature for cooking chili or a single egg. Great cook top.
