I have had the stove lock up a few times so that it would not respond to the touch controls. I had to turn off the power to reset. I also found that there is a condition occasional that causes a periodic beeping. I thought at first that it was just a warning that the top was still hot but that is not consistent since in general now I do not hear the annoying periodic beeping.

Comment on this review
from Central coast
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
By Emma J
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.
Very attractive cook top but with some major issues
from Queen Creek, AZ
We bought 4 KitchenAid products at the same time (fridge, oven,micro and cooktop). The cooktop was the only item we have had problems with. While very attractive, the shiny finish does not appear to be mar resistant. After limited usage, we already have some scratches, and some clear marring - even with recommended pots and pans. Our previous top had a matte finish and held up over 16 years - despite countless family gatherings and multiple cooks. Only in the past year did it shown signs of wear. Also, the controls on this model are very complicated. We should not have to treat a cooktop with kid gloves.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Excellent appearance and functionality
from Newtown Squre, PA
We completely demo'd our kitchen and replaced everything. We selected 3 Kitchen Aid products for our new kitchen: double oven, cooktop, and refrigerator. One of the primary reasons we selected Kitchen Aid was the black stainless which is a great appearance. We also liked the features and functionality of the appliances.
Easy to use
I bought this a couple of months ago and live it. Easy to use, heats up quick, and overall a great product.
