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.
Summary: We have been disappointed with this cooktop from the beginning - have had it for 4 years. It is difficult to keep clean, the controls and surrounding area gets splattered constantly. And the knobs are actually made of plastic! One of the them actually partially melted when I was canning! Pretty cheesy. We have decided to relace it.
Summary: It's even difficult to describe my disappointment. I researched this cooktop online and found only one negative review on amazon, all the other reviews were super positive and I decided to buy it. First problem I encountered that right and left side grates are wobbling/rocking on the base, they cannot be settled in place. The grates surface is not horizontal, the pots lean to the right and left on the side grates and to the front on the middle grate.
Electrolux is riding on their reputation...but lost quality over time!

Summary: We bought the Electrolux EG36GC55GS1 36" gas range top, along with the Electrolux EW30EW65GS3 30" electric double convection oven. Both were installed in our new construction home. Both were purchased based upon the Electrolux / Husqvarna reputation, and the very positive past experiences we had with Husqvarna guns, motorcycles, sewing machines and a few Electrolux items too.
Summary: The elecric igniter for the high BTU central burner doesn't light it for dozens of 'clicks'--never did. The other burners lit slowly too. Entire piezoelectric lighter system went POP and died a month after the warrantee ended. Unsafe, kitchen fills with gas.
Summary: This company does not have this cooktop in stock. I ordered it and it took them four days to tell before Amazon simply canceled the order. Do not trust them on their claims. They communicated poorly and mislead me throughout the entire process.
