Excerpt: I bought this cook top in February, love the powerful heat, but the cleaning is nasty. It takes a long time to clean and it seems like the stain just gets baked in. You would think that most stainless steels are easy to clean but not this one. It is hard to clean in between the knobs and the stain in the stainless steel basin is really hard to clean. I'm talking about cleaning right after I cook, not like I waited.
Summary: I bought this online without ever seeing it in person. Big mistake. The stainless is cheap. It scratches every time you wipe up some crumbs. There are rust spots starting under every burner. There are also rust spots all along the outside edge. The stainless under the burners is yellowing and I am unable to remove it. Because of the placement of deep well, the burners are far from the pots and pans. This translates to a loss of heat and increase in propane use.
