Excerpt: One of the principal design features I find most enjoyable is the center, elevated and tilted control knobs. This feature allows me to check the burner status from anywhere in the kitchen, a real plus for safety. My only downside comment is that the grate design around the "small" 5,000 btu burner is not adequate to keep a small diameter pan stable, especially a saute' pan.
Excerpt: Nice design sharp looking cooktop easy to clean. Burners seem close together with pans but they do fit. Flames are strong especially the center main burner 18k. Knobs in front seem to be close to front burners flames when igniting but do not come into contact. Overall its a very nice unit I have never had a problem with it I have even converted mine to (lp) gas and back to natural with out any issues once. Nice unit happy with my electrolux cooktop.
Excerpt: This is the second Electrolux gas cooktop we have had. We like the design and layout of the controls. Keeps them out of the way for small children The simmer feature on the new gas cooktop makes keeping things warm very easy even though it is gas.
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.
Excerpt: I really like my gas cooktop. It's very easy to clean and it looks beautiful in my kitchen. It's easy to clean because anything that sticks to it comes out easily and once I do it, it looks new. The only problem is that the little rubber pieces attached to the bottom of the grates have come out easily. They need to be replaced and that happened very quickly.
Summary: I have had this cook top for about 8 months now and really love it! The five burners are so convenient; this holiday season was a breeze. I like to use cast iron cookward and it is nice to be able to slide pots from one burner to another instead of picking them up. I find the unit easy to clean, I am very picky about the appearance but the stainless cleans up for the most part.
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.
