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.

The glass top has broken twice in three weeks. I have used a glass top stove for 12 years and never broke a top. this one has broke 2 time in three weeks....Read complete review
The glass top has broken twice in three weeks. I have used a glass top stove for 12 years and never broke a top. this one has broke 2 time in three weeks. Kitchen aid wont fix or even look at it because I bought it 13 months ago and the warranty is 12 months. the replacement top is expensive. so now I have to either buy yet another glass top, or trash a cook stove I bought 13 months ago.

So easy to keep clean!
from Ashburn VA
So easy to use
Looks great and works like a charm!
from Davis, Ca
I've been using this cooktop for 2 weeks and love the way it works. The controls are easy to use and the burners respond quickly to changes in heat levels. The various burner sizes allow me to use the right amount of heat for the pot or pan being used. After applying protectant to the cooktop, cleaning is quick and easy.

I just had this cooktop installed last week. I have only cooked two things on it, but since I am not use to the temperature feature yet, both items boiled over. Now my brand new cook top is stained and ugly. Nothing I tried removed the stains. The whole purpose in buying this flat item was because I was told it was easy to clean. I have just ordered the cleaning kit that Kitchen Aid recommends and hope it works., but until then I have to look at a stained boil over mess. It was beautiful when brand new!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Controls are outstanding

I have had my cooktop now for about a month. I absolutely love how easy it is to clean. I had a pot boil over and water spots can right out. It was recommended to me to use soft scrub without bleach (original) as my cleaner with a non-scratch sponge. I have now used this twice and makes it like new. In between cleanings is just soap and water and using my kitchen towel to buff it out to a shine. The sliding temperature scale took a bit to get use to and I'm still trying to get use to it but works like a dream. Absolutely love how I can change the element size based on what pan I'm using. I use porcelain cookware that works great with this stovetop and doesn't scratch it. I have not yet used the simmer, melt and hold or keep warm feature yet. All in all I would buy this cooktop again and recommend it to anyone looking for a flat cooktop.

fantastic 5th element
By Mom of 2
from Oro medonte, ontario, canada
we have had this for about a month. love having the extra element in the middle and the fact that it is larger than your typical large element. great for the bigger pots and pans. love that you can choose the size of the element so if you have a bunch of smaller pots on the go and need the extra small element you can set a bigger one to a smaller size only the inner ring heats up. Still getting used to the temperature controls. they are hotter than our previous stove. that will come with time. Only issue we have so far is that the control centre is sensitive so if you place a pot or pan or cloth, anything really, on it it will turn the whatever is on off.
Works good 4 stars because touch screen is sometimes sensitive, cleaning is not as easy as it say

I like my new KitchenAid cooktop. It is easy to use. It is the first time to have a glass cooktop. It is a challenge to keep clean, but I believe it will become easier once I become familiar with it. It heats quickly and is easy to adjust the temperature.
