This thing is sweet.
I love all the features.
I find the Continuous Surface with Heavy-Duty Grates really handy.
It also have the ability to simmer on several if not all burners. It has a super low temp if needed.
It also is really easy to clean.
My granite counter-top returned under the lip and gives this range top a nice clean look.

I purchased this cooktop in for our new home. I have yet to use it so I cannot comment on performance. However I am disappointed in the finishing touches to this cooktop. Since this is on an island the rear plate has three screws visible and the two side bars do not end in a finished look but with sort of an opening as if it were to hook onto something. Not at all I expected from a design perspective.

Great cook top

By 

from Alaska

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

Easy to install and elegant to look at. I was able to install this cool top without utilizing the instructions to about 90% completion. I tried to figure out how to use the retaining brackets in order to pull the cooktop down to the cabinet but I couldn't find any instructions on this procedure. After install we had just a few adjustments to the gas settings. Wow what a dream to cook on. Lights easy and stays surprisingly clean. Only improvement I would make on this product would be better interlocking of the cooking grates so they won't shift around.

Looks doesn't work, feels like high altitude cooking high

By 

from PA

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

This cooktop has been installed by the builder, we have upgraded to this one thinking it's good design but really useless inefficient design. It takes lot of gas to boil food. Have used other kitchen aid products and they were top notch. Grills are way high. Please let me know how to fix this design issue. We are unable to cook efficiently.

Purchased a couple of weeks ago. Replaced an older GE, and would not look back. Front to back burners are a bit tight, but side to side room is GREAT!

Nice range... some design concerns

By 

from Vienna, VA

Verified Buyer

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

This range came in our house which is new construction. I like the 6 burner range all of the burners are fairly large and powerful. I really like there is black metal under the burners so you dont have dirty looking stainless steel under there after some use. The thing I do not like is the front "shelf" area between the burners and knobs is a non-coated stainless steel and scratches VERY EASILY. I have been very careful cooking on this range and I already have a couple scuffs and scratches. If you are the type of person that will be upset by this (I am) then I would not buy this range, it will give a lot of anxiety to cook on it. This top piece should have been designed with a scratch resistant coating at the very least.

My husband convinced me to get a gas cooktop in our new home. I didn't understand why he wanted one so bad until we cooked on it. I was pleasantly surprised by how much faster the cooking time was and how much better the food actually tasted. Looks and works great!

Very nice cooktop!

By

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

I have been using my new cooktop for a couple weeks now and am enjoying it very much. My former gas range had a grate that was located too close to the flame and it was difficult to keep food from burning. My new Kitchen Aid has a more elevated grate and cooks more evenly. The downside of this is it takes longer to boil water and heat up some food. However, I have been trying the different burner options and figuring out which is best for each pan, and it is getting better. I LOVE and the cooking space for multiple items! Glad I purchased this item.
