Summary: I bought this Bosch cooktop for a major kitchen remodel one year ago. This evening, as I was cleaning up after dinner, I thought to myself how happy I am with it, and decided to post a review. After a year, I can give it 5 stars with no hesitation --- I love it. It's great looking, to begin with.
Summary: There's much to like in this top-rated cooktop. There also are a few things that could be better. First, the plusses: five burners, simmer and quick-boil burners, stylish for a kitchen update, good value. On the down side, fit and finish for the burner knobs is sketchy, at best (all five point a bit to the left instead of true north when in the off position, and are loosely seated on the cooktop (a good bit of wiggle, which I suspect may become a problem with time); the...
Summary: I'd ordered this unit from Lowes. We had been doing a minor kitchen remodel and the contractors removed the old cooktop the day before delivery. The lowes unit was damaged and they couldn't get us another one for a couple of weeks. In desperation, I checked Amazon and had a perfect unit delivered in just two days! I have been pleased with both the appearance and performance of this unit. The continuous grates are awesome and make both cleaning and cooking easier.
Summary: I recently got new granite counter tops and replaced my old standard white 30' GE with this beautiful Bosch 800 series Stainless Steel Gas Cooktop...It fit into my 30' scheme and it is the best with the 5 sealed burners...It looks like a million bucks.
Summary: I have own this cook top for over a year now. Here are some of Pros and Cons I have experienced with my cook top. This is my first gas cook top. PROS 1.Very nice appearance and stylish. 2.The large center burner boils water faster than my electric, maybe due to the fact, that the heat is instance. Other burners perform well for cooking and simmering. 3.Easy to clean, but see below. 4.Was not hard to install.
Summary: Bosch NGM Series,8054UC 30" Gas Cooktop, stainless steel This cooktop is magnificent in every respect but one: The front left burner is too close to the left-hand control knob , causing the knob to get too hot to touch. I e-mailed Bosch about this, telling them about not just the inconvenience but the injury risk to the user and the liability risk to Bosch. I suggested substituting knobs that are not thermally conductive Never received any response.
Great cooktop -- installed it myself and it works fab

Summary: Looked at a number of cooktops. We decided to go Bosch all the way, and also got Bosch wall oven and dishwasher too. This is the best 30" cooktop out there. All the other 5 burner designs we looked at are useless because, yes you technically get 5 burners, but they're all so small and crammed together you'd be better with just the standard 4 burner. The Bosch 5 burner is the only one that's really thought-though the layout.. The main centre burner is really hot.
Summary: Bosch has awful customer service. We are stuck with this cooktop and a downdraft that has not worked a single day. We have contacted Bosch and patiently worked with them through the process of numerous service calls and change of parts. We are stuck with a lemon and really really bad customer support people who wouldn't man up and send us a replacement. We are well within our warranty.
Summary: What I loved about this product was the 5 burners in a spacious 30-inch cooktop. Other 5-burner models are larger than this, and they will not fit the precut hole in my granite. It can get a bit crowded when you put several, big pots. However, it works just fine, since we only use 2 or 3 burners at one time.
Summary: I bought this because it had 5 burners in a 30" cooktop. Most of the 5 burner models are larger and wouldn't fit the hole already cut in my granite. If you put big pots on several of the burners it does get a little crowded, but rarely do we have more than 2 or 3 going at the same time anyway. The high BTU center burner is great. It gets things hot quickly. I've been using this for about 2 years now with no issues.
