Constant buzzing humming noise negates any positive feature of this model.

Allure Nobell, Amazon
19 January 2015
  • Summary: I bought the 36" model. I had it installed a couple of days ago and was concerned about a constant moderately loud humming sound coming from the power supply for the pilots. I looked up "troubleshooting" in the manual and it states right there that this is a normal feature of this product.

Gorgeous cooktop that produces a LOT of heat.

Shawn, Amazon
31 October 2014
  • Summary: My wife and I had a home built in Peoria Arizona in May of 2013. We chose the upgraded Kitchaid stainless stell products, one of which was this 30" gas cooktop. This was the first time my wife and I owned a gas cooktop, so it definitely took some getting used to - the differences from electric to...

Defective cooktop -- KitchenAid refuses to replace it

Fernanda Viegas, Amazon
23 September 2013
  • Summary: We got this cooktop when we bought our brand new house in 2011. We've been having problems with the cooktop for almost two years now. Every once in a while, when we cook something for more than half an hour (like stews, or certain meats), the burners stop working--all of them at once.

Bad cooktop. Replacement unit seems to be ok.

M. Lam, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this cooktop in November 2012. By February 2013, I started having problem with the automatic ignition. I placed service call to Kitchenaid. They came out and replaced the ignitor. It worked for a month, and the automatic ignitor failed again.

Nice cooktop

Sdlee, Amazon
18 July 2013
  • Summary: I replaced my electric cooktop with this itme at my new place. Since my kitchen is equipped with all KitchenAid appliances, I was looking for same maker for a cooktop. My wife insisted on gas cooktop as it is easier to cook than the electric version, I was searching for the right item.

Few redeeming features, too many design flaws

D. Black, Amazon
23 January 2013
  • Summary: Last October, I purchased all new appliances for my kitchen to replace existing tired, 20-year-old items. We went all KitchenAid this time. We plan on doing a gut remodel on our kitchen in the next year, and I will replace this cooktop at that time (so it will be less than one year old when I get...

unsafe grates

infoshare, Amazon
9 January 2013
  • Summary: All of the partial prongs on each of the grates slant downward. They are not level, so unless a pan/pot is exactly centered over the burner the pan/pot tips, creating a hazardous and unsafe situation.

Average to good cooktop. A bit pricey.

larichta, Ebay
5 September 2012
  • Summary: An average cooktop. Difficult to clean. The aluminum flame spreaders have a tendency to bake on the grease and are very sensitive to different cleaners (only "brillo" pads work well). They should have been made of steel or brass. Converting to propane was a bit tricky.

Good initial quality, fades fast

R. Pick, Amazon
1 September 2012
  • Summary: We were excited to find this model four years ago. 5 burners in 30 inches of space was perfect. The unit looks and feels substantial. We had it professionally installed. We immediately noticed that the burner knobs are very touchy, and that with several of the medium-sized burners, the difference...
