Excerpt: I was a little leery of purchasing an induction cook top, but I'm glad I did. The only issue I have with it is the bridge element. So far I can not find a griddle that will work with this function. The 11 inch burner needs to be redesigned so that it can also work with smaller pan size(s).
Excellent performer, but reliability and service support is poor!!
22 January 2015
Summary: Excellent performer and a beautiful cooktop, but it is now completely broken after less than 30 days of light use. While boiling a pot of water on the right rear burner, there was a slight "pop" and now the unit does not have a single light or error message showing.
Being new to induction cooking, I cannot compare this ...
25 November 2014
Summary: Being new to induction cooking, I cannot compare this unit to others. However, in a couple of reviews, this unit was rated highest. That was the reason I purchased it. I have been using it for about 3 weeks, and so far it performs its purpose admirably.
Excerpt: Takes a little while to figure out an induction cooktop, but I am loving it. Easy to clean, and love how it heats to the level you want, Had to buy new pans that work with an induction system, though, but that was okay.
kitchenaid - 30-Inch 4 Element Induction Cooktop, Architect® Series II
29 June 2014
Excerpt: I have owned this cooktop for 18 months and have had to replace it 4 times as the boost function on the large burner trips a breaker and I then get an F47 error which means that the console has to be replaced.
Excerpt: This purchase was part of a kitchen re-model which included all new appliances; I am very pleased with this series. Its clean lines, efficiency, and performance complement all the other pieces.
Excerpt: We bought this unit to replace another brand that had failed three times in as many months. The kitchenaid had good reviews, would fit in the custom cut in our granite countertops, and looked nice. The only complaint I have is the unusual sizing of the elements.
