Summary: Wow! love the continuous burner grate - used dimes underneath the grate to protect the feet from scratching the stainless. Another reviewer said that the rubber feet burned off (thanks for the tip!) Love the Burner power. Purchased an aluminum griddle and having a great cooking time with my son. Unit arrived perfectly packed and is so shallow that I can have drawers underneath the cooktop for my implements - Whooo Hooo! Happy cook!
Summary: Sept 2 Dear AJ Madison, I received the cook top in TIME and in TOP condition and am very happy with the modern look. I wanted to use it before I wrote my review.It is beautiful and practical. My whole family loves it. Visitors have admired the sturdy and clean look of the CT.
Summary: I purchased this cook top through Whirlpool's VIP partner site in January 2013 and it worked perfectly up until the warranty expiring. Our middle burner no longer lights and the minimum charge to come out and fix it is $85 plus parts. This is unacceptable considering this "Gold" appliance is just over a year old! Would not purchase this product or other Whirlpool products until warranty/customer service is improved.
Summary: First off, this is a very nice looking cooktop. The stainless steel accents are nice and the center grate is very attractive. This is an excellent deal if the price stayed the same and the shipping charge wasn't $500+. Not quite sure why Amazon emailed me about this 'closeout' deal, when in fact, it's not even closeout. This needs to be taken down.
Summary: Check out the whole picture of the deal: See the upper right of your screen >>>> $570.11 + $504.49 shipping = $1074.60. Now look a the middle of your screen and see: List Price: $1,292.00; Price: $570.11; You Save: $721.89 (56%)!!!!! WHAT A SCAM. AMAZON, YOU OWE IT TO YOUR CUSTOMERS TO DUMP THIS ADVERTISEMENT!!!!
Excerpt: The Whirlpool Gold gas cooktop was installed by the builders of my new home. It is both the coolest looking and best working cooktop I have ever used. I like to pretend that I am a fancy chef, even if I am just an adequate housewife, and this range is fun. There are five burners, and sometimes I get them all going. The burners light quickly, and they adjust to a great range. The only downside is the clean-ability of the top.
Summary: I too purchased a Whirlpool Gold group of appliances for a remodel and all the appliances look great and perform well. I must agree with the other reviewer that this cooktop is frustrating to clean. I end up using a toothpick to get the debris out of the bottom edge. If the burners get wet or dirty, the burner will continue to spark after ignition. Between one or two burners constantly sparking and the cleaning issue, it knocks the stove down to a three.
