Excerpt: I searched a long time before I decided to purchase my Frigidaire cook top. Because it is a flat glass top and not complicated and because I have arthritis in my hands, I am able to keep it clean with the wipe of a cloth.
Summary: When researching cooktops, I noticed that many complained they were hard to keep clean. Well, the easiest color to clean is this speckled gray and black one. It doesn't show streaks or stains as much as a plain black or white cooktop.
Summary: Unit about 2 years old. Extremely difficult to keep clean. More importantly, glass top developed an 8" crack from heat of 4 burners operating at the same time on a busy holiday. Also chipped in two places on edging. As others have expressed, you must use a razor scraper to remove crusted overspill.
Summary: "The fastest shipping ever!! Thank you! We just hope that this part last longer than the last one that we ordered, this is the second time fixing the panel on our oven in just 2 years. Maytag just ain`t what it use to be. "
Summary: Got the smoothtop thinking it would be easy to clean. The unit stays hot for 20 minutes after shutting off and bakes any splatter onto the cooktop. It is easy to get the bulk of the splattered food off by soaking in soap and a little scrubbing.
