Summary: Ordered this range top to get by until a planned remodel. It arrived as stated in good condition. Installation was a breeze. The only issue is we cook with cast iron and it makes the cooking top settle to the middle creating a slope on the burner surfaces. For the average person it would likely be fine but a 14" dutch oven full of chili seems to be slightly more than it can handle. I intend to build a brace to stiffen it up and then it will be great.
Summary: Looks great but its a little cheap due to the light metal they used. If this had a thicker metal it would had been much better unit. It seams to work ok I thought the grids would of heated up a little faster cause it new but its ok. There was no other choice of stoves for the size hole I had also you get what you pay for, I didn't have a lot of money so for me it was good.
Summary: This was a replacement for an identical configuration but ancient Kithcenaid. Good fit and about the same quality; it looks like it should last the 40 years it predessor did. The only complaint is that the "brushed chrome" finish scratches rather easily. This is only a problem when the lights of the are on brightest setting.
Summary: Had to replace the same counter-top range, and there was no other brand that would fit in the space. Although this is listed as a stainless steel cooktop, it is only a "stainless steel" finish. This causes the finish to be easily damaged when trying to remove cooked-on foods. Burner pans on original cooktop rusted out, so expect the same thing to happen with this replacement. Would not have bought this cooktop if there had been any other choice.
Summary: I bought this for a replacement to the same model that was maybe 30 years old. Being the same model, the size was exactly the same and drop in was easy. The feature that we liked is that it heats fast. I guess any modern unit would have done that, though. The biggest shortcoming is the thin metal in the construction. The old was at least twice as thick and twice as heavy. As another reviewer said, a heavy pot will make the unit sag, though slightly.
Summary: This unit replaced the original cook top in my kitchen which is 48 years old. The cut-out in my counter was about 3/16' too large and the unit would fall through the opening but with a little modification I was able to make it fit and it looks great and works fine. I am very pleased.
Summary: We did a mild renovation in our kitchen and needed a cooktop that fit in the hole that was already there in our countertop. This one was basically our only choice. When we moved in this house we had a stainless steel frigidaire from the 1960s. It was a beast to use and clean. They must have used stainless steel 2x as thick as this top. When we ordered this one we had thought the build quality would be at least on par with that one. We were wrong.
Summary: We updated our 30yr Frigidaire cooktop with this newer version. Stainless steel is very clean with a matte finish. If you are trying to match up to your other stainless steel appliances you may want to look carefully at the type of shine your appliances have. Performance is quick and elements are durable. This is a very basic model so price matches up nicely.
