Summary: I've had my cooktop for almost 3 years and it does work GREAT! Easy to clean and powerful. Only one complaint in that it does not simmer on any burner, any setting. Everything boils and burns if left unattended. I have propane not natural gas so this problem may not occur on all fuel supplies. Also, one word of caution. DO NOT put grates in the dishwasher. The cast iron will break! I just spent $220 on a new center grate!
Summary: I initially considered one of the more expensive Bosch cooktop models, and am glad to have settled with this one. The Cooktop is great. It looks fantastic, the middle burner has dual flames to heat things up extremely fast. The contiuous grates make moving pots and pans easy. No complaints whatsoever.
Summary: The cooktop is powerful, versatile, and great-looking. One thing to note is the racks are higher off the cooking surface than some cooktops, which takes some getting used to. It's also easy to clean, as stainless goes.
Summary: Exactly as expected when searching through products by Bosch and other manufacturers. It was the only product that had all of the features that I was looking for. Front controls. Continuous grates. Wide range of burner BTUs. Flame failure cut off. convertible to LPG fuel.
