Summary: This range heats up quickly and cooks food evenly. It has actually taken a little while to get used to because it cooks at such a higher tempature so I can use a much lower setting to cook at then on my old unit. The only problem is that I find the flat top a pain to maintain. You need to check all your pans and make sure they are smooth on the bottom or they will scratch the glass flat top. Also, I find having to use the special cleaner and pad to be a pain.
