Excerpt: Works great, cleans up easily. The central Min-2-Max burner heats up so much hotter than our old cooktop yet lowers to a gentle simmer. I like the continuous grates, I will start something on high on the central burner and then slide it over to one of the others.
Excerpt: The new Electrolux 36" Gas Cooktop is a major highlight in our completely redesigned kitchen. In addition to giving us accurate flame control for all five burners, this appliance features a continuously grated surface, which can accommodate a wide variety of pot and pan combinations. The appearance of this cooktop gives off an impression of heavy-duty functionality, yet its modern design blends in favorably with our other kitchen appliances.
Excerpt: I purchased the 36" stainless steel cooktop when we upgraded our kitchen. The unit stands out when you look at the kitchen counter. The BTU on the burners are powerful. It's a great product worth the investment.
Excerpt: The variety of burner sizes is convenient, and there is good control of temperature settings. After a year, I feel I'm still learning how to get the center 2-ring burner to ignite, as it's tricky. Now that I have a continuous grate, I understand why they are considered convenient. I appreciate that the knobs are metal so they don't melt if a hot baking pan out of the oven happens to land on top of one. (I have friends with other cooktop brands where the knobs melt.
Deep well design leads to Very inefficient heating. Company does not acknowledge design flaw

Summary: I am apalled at the inefficient heating for this cooktop. The extra deep "well" is so deep that the flame hardly reaches the cooking pots. Everything sitting on the counter next to the flame gets heated, but the cooking pots doesnt seem to notice the giant flame burning right below it. I contacted the dealer, who told me that he contacted the company but was told that the company does not plan to do anything about it and that they did not think it was a problem.
Excerpt: I have yet installed my cook top as I am waiting for replacement of broken parts. I fully expect to love my cook top when it finally gets installed. I would hope to max out all rating options at that time.
Excerpt: We just finished installing the 36" gas cook top! It is as good of quality as it looks in the pictures on-line. The heavy duty knobs look like they will last. The burner configuration gives a wide variety of cooking choices. The only negative is that the griddle does not come with the cook top, even though the advertisement eludes to that effect. The griddle ships separately with a "mail in only" coupon and you pay separate shipping. Over all we are pleased so far.
Excerpt: I could have chosen any brand cooktop but I feel This 36" Electrolux gas cooktop is the very best. It has met my every expectation in quality, performance and design. I would recommend this to any body considering buying a new cooktop.
Excerpt: The cooktop is a great product. We live in hurricane alley--no power, no cooking...not anymore, BABY! Generator for the lights and cooking with gas! Whether it's quick to boil or slow simmer--breakfast, lunch or dinner, the 36" Electrolux gas cooktop is a real winner. We expect many, many years of reliable service. I don't mind paying for a product if it delivers and this one does.
