Excerpt: Bought the 36" 5 Burner Architect II gas cooktop to compliment the other KitchenAid appliances in our kitchen (refrigerator, dishwasher, convection microwave and oven combo). We replaced another premium brand cooktop that worked okay, but had reliability and cleanibility issues. The burner performance is outstanding.
Excerpt: I bought this cooktop about 2 months ago and today the repairman is coming to fix one of the front burners that is not working properly. Also, I didn't realize it when I bought it but, the burners are too close and I am not able to use the back burners if I am using the front ones. The pans won't fit. They are only 71/2 inches apart from the center of the burners. I am so unhappy with my choice! The burners should at least be 9" apart!
Excerpt: Really, really nice stove top and everything works well so far. Sometimes I wish there was more space when I have more than 2 or 3 pots on the stove but it works out (a big pan and a big pot can be bigger than the depth of the stove).
Excerpt: I bought one of Gas cooktop from Home Depot and used only 2 or 3 weeks and tried to return it because smell Gas, but can take it a back. so disappointed and went Bary & Scarp Appliance and purchased Kitchenaid cook top used for 3month with no smell gas and wonderful and happy to use every day, its excellent !!!!
