Excerpt: I purchaaws an electtrolux Radiant/Inducton Electric Cooktop, oven, and dishwasher in 2009. These were very expensive but I thought I was buying the best. Two years ago the dishwasher stopped working. I had to buy a new one. Yesterday the cooktop stopped working. I really can't believe they didn't last longer than this. I am so disappointed. I have family coming in for the holidays and no way to cook unless I buy a new cooktop.
Excerpt: I absolutely love my induction cooktop. I had to purchase the hybrid because of our homes wiring, but I actually like having both the radiant and induction elements. One of my favorite things to do is show my friends how quickly I can boil water. The induction cooks very quickly and evenly. The only downside is that when you turn off the cooktop the heat is gone. So we find that going back for seconds your food tends to have cooled more than usual.
Excerpt: I love the fact that I can place a towel on the cooktop when I am cooking. It helps to keep the cook surface clean. I have had this almost 2 years and still like to show off how quickly I can boil water.
Excerpt: I really like this cooktop from a cooking perspective, it works great. BUT, it is not easy to clean or not easy to make it look like its clean. I'm constantly having to use a razor blade to get stuff off the surface. I've tried the cleaners that came with the product and sometimes a razor blade is the only answer. In addition, no one said that the stainless steel would scratch so easily. Set one pan on top of it and bump it and you have a scratch.
Excerpt: We purchased this cooktop last summer as part of our kitchen remodel. We couldn't be happier with it. The hybrid element boils water in about a minute, all of the elements heat and cool quickly and consistently allowing for a great cooking experience and predictable results. For an electric cook top, that's exaclty what you'd like! We couldn't be happier.
Excerpt: I loved this cook-top (Model # EW30CC55GS) from day one. We paid a ton of money for it,but the features were worth it to me. I highly suggest buying the best service plan you can get. Reason for that is that mine bit the dust just after 3 years! So so sad... I spent the last 2 weeks looking for another with the same features and could not find one I liked. Yes, I did it again. Just bought another one of these. Now I have a 5 year plan from Sears that I can re-new.
