Summary: I just bought a new home, and this was what was selected as the alternative to a gas stove top. The large burners are in the back. Those are the ones I use the most. It is such a poor design as I have to lean over to stir cook anything. It hurts my shoulder. I hate this stove top. I wish I had thought about the fact that there are only 2 small burners in the front. Buy something else.
Summary: I love the cooktop. It's beautiful and accommodates five cook areas. My only gripe would be that both the larger cook areas are at the back of the cooktop, but I imagine that was necessary to have five areas.
Summary: Bought this cooktop at the store. Worked great for about a month. After 3 months, the surface had a thermal crack and it won't boil water. I've had techs come out 3 times and they say they don't understand. They call in to the WP tech line and their tech states it's working correctly. My question is this, if it won't boil water, how is that working correctly? Don't buy whirlpool products.
Product has a streamline look, like the noninvasive look.

Excerpt: Enjoying my new cooktop, it gives my kitchen a simple, clean, unclutter look that doesn't detract from the cabinetry. I love that it is not a focal point, but instead a component. Just wish the larger heating elements had been designed in the front/staggered in the unit, I still preferr that arrangement.
Excerpt: Chose this cooktop for its sleek design...easy to clean. Always looks good! Efficient cooking...heats up quickly. The "lock" feature allows the surface to be used without fear of accidentally turning on elements. Installed this item in a summer home...seriously considering a conversion from a gas cooktop to this same item in our permanent home!
Pros: Convenient Features, Design, Easy to use, Innovative, Performance, Style
Excerpt: Cooktop looks great and has many features that we like. The heat is instantaneous and the cleaning of the cooktop is not a big deal. Had the unit for a month and feel that it was a good purchase. Have not had any problems with the unit.
Pros: Convenient Features, Design, Easy to use, Performance, Style
Summary: Great product, and I like everything about it. The vendor was less than helpful when I called about a wiring issue, however. The manual was not very clear about wiring connection, but with a little trial and error I got it to work.
Excerpt: The cooktop works well, actually the heating elements got hot far more quickly than our old one with solid heat elements. It takes some work to keep the top clean, using the supplied cleaner, but it isn't a big problem. I like the hot surface warning after the unit is turned off.
Pros: Convenient Features, Easy to use, Performance
