I recently bought a house with a gourmet kitchen that had some older and newer black appliances and hated my Bosch electric ceramic cooktop mostly because it was electric! It was only 1.5 years old, but I was used to gas and it really bothered me that the previous owner did not have natural gas in the kitchen. But they were old school, born in the depression, and well, you know, they trusted electric! I previously had already replaced all of the black appliances with mostly Kitchenaid stainless appliances, Dishwasher and French Door counter depth Fridge, so it was kinda a no-brainer that I wanted them all to match. (I had also replaced the double convection oven, but did so with the Kenmore Elite, because of the negative reviews on the noise with the comparable Kitchenaid Oven.)

So I finally bit the bullet and ran a 3/4" Flex gas line up through the basement to the kitchen. Wow am I happy I did so.

I was limited with choices because I was replacing the 37" Bosch in a granite countertop, so I did the research and decided on the Kitchenaid 36" cooktop because it was a much easier transition then to go to a free standing or a drop in. I had to do a slight modification because the new product was slightly smaller than the old opening, but since I am a handyman, I was able to perform the modification which including moving the black granite pot rests on the side and relocating them closer to the edge of the new cooktop. All in all, it came out like it was always there.

This is an excellent product! I love the choice of the different size burners and the 20K BTU Center Burner. It heats the big pot full of water for corn quickly. I do most of the cooking in my family as I grew up my family's restaurant business in St. Louis.

I also love the lighted dials that let you know the individual burners are on, because I used to leave my Viking on at my last house.

The cooktop is really easy to clean and to keep clean...unlike my last Viking and the Bosch Ceramic Cooktop which were a pain in the A!

I only have one slightly negative comment, which really isn't that bad, and surely would not affect a 5 star review, but the silk screening on the outside dial indicators is very light and hard to see, but really, who needs that anyway with a gas cooktop, you can see how high the burners are when they are operating.

I have not used the optional griddle feature yet...and don't know that I will because it is kind of small, so as far as making pancakes for a housefull, it would probably be a little inconvenient! The number one reason I chose this model was because of the 20K BTU center burner!

All in all, this is a Great Product and I would highly recommend it.

I did not choose this cooktop, but it was a upgrade in a house I was building. The first time I used it the knob got so hot and melted. The burners as so small and this is a fire hazard. I could send pictures but they do not allow them. These need to be on recall. Where are they made and who in the states is regulating this.

Great Cooktop!

By 

from Idaho Falls, ID

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 36" Stainless Steel 5-Burner Gas Cooktop:

Love the different style burners, griddle, and lighted knobs. Was a bit wider than my previous 36" drop-in cooktop, and needed to have my granite cut a 1/2" wider. Would have given 5 stars, but concerned about the setting markings (i.e., Off-High-Low-Simmer-etc.) imprinted on the stainless steel. Very light marking (hard to read) and appears that they will wear off over time. I am hoping for Kitchen Aid to come up with an adhesive ring that covers the original marking and provides better indication.

36" BURNER GAS COOKTOP WITH GRIDDLE

By 

from Mansfield, MA

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 36" Stainless Steel 5-Burner Gas Cooktop:

The gas cooktop is a joy to have. We've been cooking on an electric cooktop for years and now realize what we were missing out on. Using gas as opposed to electricity is like the difference between night and day. The cooktop is very attractive and easy to use. We absolutely love it and would certainly recommend it to everybody. The only downside is that the griddle is a bit on the small side but we're going to upgrade it to a larger one because we plan to do a lot of cooking on it.
