Summary: I had what seemed like the identical stove in almond finish, although it was 19 years old. We remodeled the kitchen and decided to go with a stainless steel finish. I expected similar performance as the old one, unfortunately it seems that every setting is about four notches hotter. So the low power is a lot like the medium power and the only low power is the "1" setting. So if you're making something that requires low heat you'd better be careful or you'll burn it.
Summary: This is a sturdy product that looks good, and performs as expected. It was installed easily, two of us did it in about 45 minutes with no problems. We have had it now for over a year. Do read the instructions on how to take out the coils etc for cleaning. If you don't take them out correctly, you will bend them, which is why some people say the coils slant or are unstable. I had no idea how to remove them before I read the instructions.
Summary: I am satisfied with this product, however, upon the first use, the stove under the drip bowls and the drip bowls had something on them,(probably during production) that was impossible to remove! It is a yellow stain... Hoping it will burn off, because it will not come off otherwise... I suggest maybe cleaning drip bowls before use!
Summary: my old cooktop was a stainless ge . i was satisfied with it , when i saw this one it was a great price and of course stainless, i am enjoying cooking on it and would recommend it to anyone. AmAZON GIVES VERY GOOD SERVICE SO THEY SHOULD HAVE 5 STARS ALSO!!!!!.
