Conclusion: Compared to pricier gas cooktops, the Maytag MGC4436BDW falls short on power and features, but it blows the competition away in terms of value. That's enough to make this gas cooktop a prize in the eyes of owners and they lavish it with praise. Features are few, and the grates are not continuous, but the sealed burners and lift-off burner caps make clean up a breeze. The MGC4436BDW is white, but a black version, the Maytag MGC4436BDB (Est. $480), is also offered.
