Summary: While the overall look of the cooktop is really nice, the grates are in no way fixed. There are the tiniest of dimples the grate feet are supposed to sit into but they do nothing to hold the grates in place. They easily slide down into the base, which I see as a lawsuit waiting to happen when there is a pot of boiling water involved.
Summary: I love this item! The old cook top I had was a brand named Caloric which is very old. It still worked but it was very difficult to maintain b/c of the open burners. I love that this has sealed burners. But I did love that fact that my Caloric cooktop was gas with no plug (cord)! This cook top is gas but it has a cord to plug into the wall because of the ignitors. I have to get a plug put in under my counter top.
Summary: Little eye gently keeps wassail warm and power eye get things hot in a hurry. Sturdy. Be careful to clean gently. Scratches if you do not clean off crumbs or food remnants before wiping down. Not badly, but it is just something of which to be aware. We loved cooking on it for Thanksgiving and Christmas. No issues at all with the quality.
Summary: Did a redo on kitchen & purchased this cooktop to replace my 17 yr old Whirlpool cooktop. Nothing wrong with old one, just looking worn & wanted to change to stainless. Basically, the same design as my old one, only the grates are all connected which makes moving pans while cooking much easier. Same quality product & reasonable price.
Summary: "I purchased this item 3 months ago and it still works and looks like the first day I installed it. The 15,000 btu burner is very powerful. I like powerful cooktops. This cooktop is very beautiful.
Summary: It is a good deal for the money! It does the job you need to get done! It does not have any fancy extras but that is ok, the burners do not slide around & lock in nicely. The only problem I may find as a down fall is that on one of the burners the flame is a little uneven, but if you adjust the top of it it does help.
Summary: I love this cook top. I was so nervous about buying online. But I needed to buy fast as I was moving into my newly renovated home and the contractor was waiting for my choice in counter cook tops....I did a lot of researching on line and this cooktop had the best reviews, so I went with it and it's attractive and best of all it cooks wonderfully, easy to clean....buy the stainless steel cleaner it helps to keep the shine..
