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.

Comments about KitchenAid Black 5-Element Electric Cooktop:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

Comments about KitchenAid 36" Stainless Electric Cooktop:
This cook top is great, really fast, looks very modern, I love electronic controls, it is easy to clean - but only after you learn how and buy whirlpool recommended products.
Attractive and Easy to Clean
from Ocala, FL, United States
We purchased our Kitchenaid Cooktop as part of a new build purchase. We selected it because of it's attractiveness and ease in cleaning. It took a little getting used to (the touch activated controls), but we are loving the even heat technology and how easy it is to clean. Love the look!

Sleek, low profile design. Allows are island to be a focal point - no knobs that stand out. Easy to clean with the proper cleaner. Even heating - takes a little longer to heat up than previous electric stove top.
Love the cooktop ... HOWEVER!!
from Ponte Vedra, Florida
The cooktop is very good -- need to read the manual to be fully functional. However, after moving in for a month and beginning to use the cooktop, I found that the exhaust hood above the cooktop is badly dented on the front left side (and maybe that was why the light there did not work, and I have to put in a new bulb). I was directed by Pulte Warranty to contact Whirlpool and was told that "the cosmetics were only insured for 30 days after closing." Since we closed in June, and did not move in until September and did not use and hence notice the damage and call until October, "there was nothing she could do for me..., is there anything else?" so was I told over the phone. I was too frustrated to argue with her and maybe will have to live with the damaged hood if Whirlpool will not do anything to remedy the damaged hood. BTW, I have all the other user's manuals for the Kitchenmaid products I chose for this new house except the said hood. The lady I talked to over the phone said that "you could download the manual from the web." My response was that I knew that I could, however, this fact just indicated to me that the said hood was damaged/returned and was then installed in my new house and that was why the instruction manuals were missing. I am including two pictures of the damage of the hood. I appreciate the opportunity to vent my frustrations. Will I have to be reminded of this bad experience every time I use the cooktop and hood? I just don't know....

This cooktop is fast and easy to use once you get used to it.
Great Middle Burner
from Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Love my new Kitchen Aid cooktop, especially the 5th burner in the middle offering 3 different diameter sizes. The push button and slide controls are great controlling the heating temperature and size of burner.
Happy with it.
from Califon, NJ
I had my entire kitchen redone. Cooktop is sleek looking and make the entire counter look great. My issue is that I have to touch the power pad twice (every time!). Not sure if it has too many finger prints or what. The rest of the cooktop works well with one touch
