I love the sleek design of the cooktop and all the burners and size selections. Also, I like the pre-sets (simmer, melt, etc.). The only thing I don't like is the slider heat level selector, which I find difficult to judge.

This cooktop distributes heats, then cools down, then heats up....it takes FOREVER for water to boil. I am not at all impressed by this kitchen aid product. The touch activated controls are slippery if your hands are wet or you have food on them as you would had you been actually cooking. Also this unit takes a long time to cool down, the surface area remains more than warm well after you shut it off.

Cool touch controls

Just bought 36 inch cook top, so far I have enjoyed using it. You do need to keep glass cleaner handy to keep clean.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
New to an electric stovetop
By Ricky S
from Ponte Vedra, Florida
Always was a gas "cook". That option not available here. The cooktop has performed well but still on a learning curve. In my opinion, somewhat harder to clean but now have recommended products and will see if that makes cleaning easier.
Finallly a cooktop....

An early xmas present was my kitchenaid 36 inch electric cooktop; finally got rid of that old jennair that was like over 30 years old!!! Love that I don't have to clean those nasty electrical elements! Also love the zone sizing as well as the lack of knobs ALL DIGITAL!!! like that we can "lock" the top from little hands as well - big safety feature! BIG UPGRADE FOR MY KITCHEN!!! THANKS KITCHENAID!!!

We are very happy with the modern clean look as well as the performance.
So much better than my old GE cooktop
from Houston, TX, United States
The installation was easy, with just a slight modification of the counter top opening required. My old cook top had knobs that collected grease and dirt underneath, requiring removal and cleaning constantly, and which eventually simply broke off. The Kitchen aid is completely smooth with no protruding parts. The controls are electronic and use touch sensitive areas on the cook top. They are rather intuitive and after using them a couple of times it will feel natural. This cook top also heats very rapidly for an electric one. On several of the elements, you have a choice of one or more rings to heat, so you can tailor the element to the size of the pan. I have owned and used this cook top for several months now and I cook a lot. This unit is definitely worth the money.....

Love my new stove top! Perfect size for my family,
from Jacksonville, FL, United States
We have been using the cooktop for a few weeks now and really like the features of the appliance. The total smooth top is really nice. The touch controls work effortlessly. The only complaint is that the position of the burners is hard to see as the lines showing the burners is very faint. Otherwise very pleased.
from Baton Rouge, LA, United States
Beautiful, but will pick up dust quickly. Streaks on the glass are annoying, despite using recommended Refresh. Controls are user friendly. Lock out feature nice. Burners heat rapidly. Cooktop functions well. Nothing negative except the frequency of cleaning, but that goes with this style appliance.
