Summary: My biggest concern was the stainless steel - keeping it clean, that is ! Loving to cook....no maid around....you can either be worrying about drips or you can wipe up any accidents and understand that you have a lovely item that gives you a great surface, lighted knobs...
Very disappointed with premature failure of Thermador : SGSX365FS 36 Masterpiece Gas Cooktop
10 August 2015
Summary: There was an old Thermador gas cook top in our house when we bought it in 1990. It worked flawlessly for 21 years so when we renovated the kitchen in 2012, naturally we replaced the (still working) cooktop with the top-of-the-line Thermador SGSX36FS.
Summary: i bought the 30" version of this cooktop and here is what aI founde: I did a kitchen remodel a little over a year ago. The Thermador was the most expensive cooktop, but I cook a lot and really did want the best.
This is the biggest disappointment of ANY item I have ever purchased

Summary: This is the biggest disappointment of ANY item I have ever purchased. The unit is beautiful and well made. However you can not simmer anything as Thermador uses an electronic pulsing of the flame. Either all on or all off. JUNK!!!!! Besides that it is noisy and very slow to heat.
Summary: Warning ... I purchased the 30" model of this cooktop and within a year and half, a light under one of the knobs failed and the center burner stopped working... the authorized repair man we brought in informed us that Thermador uses an unusual combination of metals at the burners that cause the...
Do not use large pans that trap heat under the grate.

Summary: Always been hard to clean, even with various abrasives, still hard to clean. We have had this for one year and has several nice features, but 2 of the pads underneath the iron grate melted & created mess. We had put on a grill pan that completely covered one side.
Summary: Reno's is absolutely horrible. I spent nearly $20,000 on all new kitchen appliances. When the $700 Thermador microwave quit working, Reno's did nothing to help. Said, "sometimes appliances break." Lot of excuses but would not stand by a good customer.
Summary: Thermador oven sucks! Second time new oven in use locking mechanism for self cleaning does not lock. Impossible to use oven.Appliance dealer says two year warranty expired. We have been ping-ponged between builder and appliance dealer. Seems no-body wants the responsibility.
Excerpt: As far as cooking goes, this cooktop is in my opinion on of the best! I have only had my cooktop for about 6 months but I love it. It was quite expensive which is a major downfall, but in this case you get what you pay for. Not only is this cooktop great but it's also very easy to use!
