Excerpt: Always was a gas "cook". That option not available here. The cooktop has performed well but still on a learning curve. In my opinion, somewhat harder to clean but now have recommended products and will see if that makes cleaning easier.
Excerpt: An early xmas present was my kitchenaid 36 inch electric cooktop; finally got rid of that old jennair that was like over 30 years old!!! Love that I don't have to clean those nasty electrical elements! Also love the zone sizing as well as the lack of knobs ALL DIGITAL!!! like that we can "lock" the top from little hands as well - big safety feature! BIG UPGRADE FOR MY KITCHEN!!! THANKS KITCHENAID!!!
Excerpt: The installation was easy, with just a slight modification of the counter top opening required. My old cook top had knobs that collected grease and dirt underneath, requiring removal and cleaning constantly, and which eventually simply broke off. The Kitchen aid is completely smooth with no protruding parts. The controls are electronic and use touch sensitive areas on the cook top. They are rather intuitive and after using them a couple of times it will feel natural.
Excerpt: We have been using the cooktop for a few weeks now and really like the features of the appliance. The total smooth top is really nice. The touch controls work effortlessly. The only complaint is that the position of the burners is hard to see as the lines showing the burners is very faint. Otherwise very pleased.
Excerpt: Beautiful, but will pick up dust quickly. Streaks on the glass are annoying, despite using recommended Refresh. Controls are user friendly. Lock out feature nice. Burners heat rapidly. Cooktop functions well. Nothing negative except the frequency of cleaning, but that goes with this style appliance.
