Summary: Bought this unit, without seeing it in person, to replace Electrolux induction cooktop. The good is that it performs well for cooking and heating. The problem is that the touch controls are almost invisible. You have to hunt for the controls.
Summary: I just had this cooktop installed today to replace an older model Electrolux Icon. It appears to function just fine. The problem is that the controls are barely visible. The older unit's controls were very easy to see.
Summary: We love this induction top. It cleans up like a dream, and heats up so fast. The kids can boil water for mac and cheese in a minute. The heat control you have is amazing. Be careful, not all pans will work on this cooktop, but it is easy to check. Just see if a magnet will attach to the pan.
Summary: I love the cook top. It is very responsive. It boils water very quickly, within 2 minutes and reduces immediately when heat is lowered. I had read in other reviews that people complained about buzzing. The unit does buzz on high heat depending on the burner and where the pan is positioned.
Summary: This unit was installed in August 2013, and it looks great and worked fabulous until December 2014. It's easy to operate and cooks very quickly and efficiently. However, in prep for a party, my wife was cooking with a large covered pot (about 12" diameter).

Summary: This particular unit is excellent in almost every aspect but you should not buy the model without the steel beveled edge – go for the model EW36IC60LS instead. I wish I had as even with careful care and attention the glass beveled edge will chip or crack very, very easily.
Summary: This cooktop is like a microwave oven only a cooktop. It cooks very fast and our friends cannot get over the speed of cooking with it. Our 30" base cabinet had to be trimmed out at the top sides to clear the base of the cooktop..Once you use induction cooking, there is no going back.
Summary: This thing is a pain. Controls are not intuitive. The steel border is easily scratched and hard to clean. And worst of all - if the control panel is wet or greasy it endlessly beeps an error until you clean it. I hate this thing and will probably replace it when I can.
Very pleased with my decision to switch from gas to induction and pleased with this model.

Summary: I wanted to be certain to leave a review on this induction cooktop once I tried it. I previously had gas and didn't like how hard it was to keep the cooktop clean. I couldn't find much information about induction so I went to a local builder show where the power company was demonstrating an...
