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.

BEAUTIFUL and easy to clean
Comments about KitchenAid 36" Stainless Electric Cooktop:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

Hard to clean
By Frank m
from Orlando, florida
We chose this stove top for our built in kitchen in our brand new home. We chose all KitchenAid appliances however this glass stove top has stains that I can not remove. I have owned a glass top stove for many years and this one is by far the hardest to clean. The stains seem like they are etched in the glass. We moved in a month ago and use it daily, I'm afraid to see what it will look like in a year.
heats up quickly

A cooks Dream
By Desert Dude
from Mesa, AZ
I am unbelievably impressed. I had forgotten how a quality cook top can make or break your dinner plans. My old stove had two settings: Ice Age or Nuke. I set this one to "7" and it nicely, lightly browns the food. I am in heaven.Only neg= controls take a little while to get the hang of.
Looks awesome in my new kitchen
from Sherman, TX
We bought this in July and it was installed in September, only used it 5-6 times before the corner got cracked by the contractor stepping on the corner of it when he was touching up paint above the vent a hood. Just made us sick. It cooks great, looks great. I'm going to see about having the glass replaced, hope it looks/works as well then!
